Description of Full Throttle

Read Full Description

By the time of Full Throttle’s release LucasArts had become the leading developer in the point-and-click adventure game genre. Their eleventh adventure game, Full Throttle, showed noticeable changes from previous releases. Featuring animated full motion video and action sequences, it set out to out to be the first of the next-generation of adventure games. A new contextual pie menu, through which interactions with objects and characters were controlled, replaced the older menu and inventory interface. The game was fully voiced, featuring professional voice actors. Finally, there was a licenced soundtrack written specially for the game by rock band The Gone Jackals.

While retaining some of the humour found in previous games, the game took a darker turn in its plotline and setting. The story revolves around a gang of bikers known as the Polecats. In a near future version of California they battle against the encroaching advancement of technology and corporate greed. The protagonist, an old-school biker called Ben, finds himself caught up in events relating to an attempt to take over the last motorcycle manufacturer in America. Along the way he finds himself and his gang framed for murder, and so he must clear their names and ensure control of the company passes to the rightful heir.

Compared to LucasArts’ previous games Full Throttle is shorter with smaller self-contained locations. Many of the puzzles contained within them aren’t particularly elaborate, and sometimes it feels that they are just interludes between the various cut scenes. However there’s still enough to carry the story well. The locations are beautifully dark and foreboding, and the characters are well brought to life by the actors voicing them. Altogether, the game succeeds in remaining continually engaging, so if you’ve never hit the road with Ben and his gang, now is the time to do so.

I wouldn't call it abandonware when there is a remaster (complete with 'classic' mode) produced by Double Fine, with Full Throttle's original creator Tim Schafer at the helm. So if you purchase that, you are supporting a number of the original creators as well as creating more demand (and therefore opportunity) for these kinds of games. No judgement from me to anyone for getting the game in any which way, but I wanted to post this for anyone who would want to purchase it but wasn't aware there is a highly accessible revamped version of this game available from the horse's mouth.

you know what disregard my other comment it does work : ) i just had to move the car around more so the game now knows, might just be some glitch

tama 2023-07-09 0 point DOS version

I loved this and wanted to play it again on steamdeck as I heard the remastered wasn't as good, but at the junkyard scene while I can get the steak into the car and I definitely have the dog stuck up there with the big magnet, and it's growling, ben says he's ill-tempered, when I try to get the forks there's that darn dog again!!
if anyone had that issue id love to know. i might as well just get it on steam if I can't skip that by but I'll try throwing the steak into another car on another play and see if that saves the dog in car state : C

ScummVM for Android. Yes it runs on your phone. Created in 1988. One of the Timeless treasures.

I downloaded the DOS version of the game and BOXER says there is no DOS programs in the file. Looks like it might be good, but useless to me.

Hi ! Have a look to "HOW TO PLAY ABANDONWARE GAMES" on this site.
Extension .img indicates that it is a Mac OS 7 to Mac OS 9 file (as . dmg is for OS X).
Load and install an old Mac emulator.
Enjoy :-)

Mikey 2016-10-21 -1 point DOS version

I have downloaded the file and scummvm but can find the file to .exe any help please

Gendefekt 2016-09-16 2 points Mac version

The Mac version (img) isn't working on ScummVM... how can I play with it ?

Samoyed 2016-08-11 -1 point DOS version

Finally! I LOVED this game back on my old 486-DX266. It taught me what Gamma was (the junkyard scene does is VERY hard to play when its dark!)

Thank You.

ScRmNgMnKyBoNr, you're an idiot. Mark Hamill is a great voice actor, and in this game he's brilliant.

Izidro 2015-02-02 1 point DOS version

Wow. That is great! Thank you very much!
This game is one of the best games I ever played! They should remaster it!
Works fine with the scumm thingy, even on my Mac.
I only dont have the menus, and in game menus. This makes things a bit harder to play...any suggestions?

ShakyBones 2013-02-27 0 point DOS version

I couldn't get the voices working in Scummvm.

Sound effect and music were fine, but no voice.

There also were a lot of errors when unziping the file. Not sure what is wrong. Bit of a shame really.

Pizzaman 2013-02-12 1 point DOS version

Played this game MANY years ago with my son.
Still remember the best line in the game..."I'm not putting my lips on that".
Only part I remember not liking too much was the fight on a bike with the other gang....otherwise FANTASTIC.
Thanks for making these possible. Have dialup only so hopefully I will MAYBE be able to get it in 25 hours or so....GULP!
