Superhero League of Hoboken
DOS - 1994
Description of Superhero League of Hoboken
This is a zany adventure/RPG game designed by none other than Steve Meretzky. Although admittedly not as funny as his Spellcasting series, this game is still chock full of Meretzsky hallmarks: lots of funny characters, wacky plot, and some tough puzzles.
As leader, you must lead the Superhero League of Hoboken to stardom by taking on increasingly difficult missions, and endure a fair amount of political satire and silly combat sessions where you use hilarious superpowers, such as the ability to see through pizza boxes and kitchen objects as weapon :)
Highly recommended for everyone, although be prepared for some aggravating back-tracking if you forget an important item somewhere, and some very cheesy dialogues that are too atrocious to be funny .

!!! Make sure to get the talkie version !!!
Another of my personal favorites! The setting is unique, with wonderful humor and a great blend of RPG and adventure play styles. The only downside is the ending, which lacks any fanfare.
Actually, I recommend all adventure games from Legend!

There was an editor out that allowed you to replace the 16-bit graphics of the characters, change the names and all of the game text. Wasn't out for long, as the author pulled the game after a BBS sysop in Mississippi who ran a BBS for the Klan - Grand Dragon's Confederacy, if anyone remembers that one - had changed all the heroes to whitesheets and neo-nazis, and the villains to racial stereotypes and civil rights heroes. The Klan version may be long lost now - I hope - but it would be fun to find the editor so a new version could be released with the heroes being DC characters, and the villains being Dan Didio and his current editorial staff!
