DOS - 1987
Description of Hollywood Hijinx
Matthew Murray's review says it all about this fun, "light" adventure game from Infocom:
"Though it could be viewed as simply another treasure hunt game from Infocom, Hollywood Hijinx stood out from the others, such as the Zork series in very distinct ways, not the least of which is the interesting, funny, and clearly-defined plot. Taking place in the mansion of a Hollywood B-movie mogul, the treasure hunt, which should end in your inheriting of your uncle's fortune, there are lots of period puzzles with interesting and unique solutions.
The flavor of the 1950s was very well captured, not only in the use of colorful anecdotes and descriptive prose within the game itself, but also within the packaging which, more than just about any other Infocom game, provided the perfect atmosphere for the game. Though Hollywood Hijinx is not a difficult game, there are a few places in it that might give some trouble to gamers who attempt this otherwise light, funny, and entertaining game."
As a bonus, Holllywood Hijinx ships with some of the most elaborate feelies of all Infocom titles this side of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, including a funny, authentic-looking tabloid magazine.

This is the first adventure game I succeeded in solving back on the commodore 64. I was hooked on Infocom ever since and still treasure my originals for my SX64 today.
In MY book. The best Infocom adventures was :
Hollywood Hijinx, Wishbringer and Trinity.
Purely based on atmosphere . The Zorks was to surreal in the puzzles for my taste.
