About This Game

In 1988 you met Mr. Rabbit and a host of his friends in the World of the Manhole. Your friends are still here, but they've done some remodeling. Prepare for a grand adventure in the world of the Manhole Masterpiece Edition. A world of epic wonder and whimsical magic. A fantastic world where every character comes alive and every new hallway leads to another wild dream. Just point and click. Soon you'll find yourself shooting down a winding waterway with Rejan Elephant. Click again and you're climbing to the top of the rook tower to great Molly Rhinoceros. Click on Mr. Rabbit's dresser drawer and moments later you're flipping through the pages of his noisy ABC book. Or you're suddenly transported to dine with that esteemed soul-cat, Mr. Dragon. So let the child in your home become the main character in a journey through an unforgettable land. A land where imaginations run wild and creativity is as close as the next wonderful doorway.

Though officially for children, The Manhole has bright colors, magical locales, and cheerful adventure to delight players of all ages. Follow Mr. Rabbit through the manhole and into one of the most wondrous make-believe worlds you'll ever find. Your adventures under the manhole will take you to many odd places -- in this game, the journey is much more important than the destination.

The Manhole: Masterpiece Edition is a kids' game, yeah, but it's chock full of wonder and the scope is enthralling. Like Spelunx, I just can't put my finger on why I'm so intrigued by this game, but there's something that draws me to explore it and interact with everything. Maybe it's the sheer age of the game combined with its sheer uniqueness. Also, the Myst making-of easter egg video is fascinating. This game is well-ported and can probably run on anything, so you have no excuse not to give it a try.

It should take less than an hour to explore the variety of mystic places in The Manhole alongside interacting with all the different creatures and surroundings. This point-and-click adventure offers no objectives, yet is full of rich detail and interactivity. Several good scores of music and a hidden video of The Making of Myst are also included. Even after 25+ years, The Manhole offers a level of thoroughness that many modern point-and-click adventures lack.

Like the other "bonus" games included within the bundle, Manhole isn't the kind of point-and-click adventure that we are pretty much all used to these days. There are no real puzzles, no inventory to worry about, no end game, or anything else. Rather, it's just a matter of exploring and clicking things to see what happens. The graphics and characters are quite cute, and the game is perfect for kids, with lots of fun features. I actually thought it was pretty good even for me, though there is one big issue. The game seems to have a crashing issue, at least on my computer. Not a bad one, by any means. I just didn't care enough to go back into it after it suddenly stopped working and closed. Outside of that, it does soon make you want a bit more from it, as an adult, though it was a nice reminder of nostalgia of days past.

There is really no point to the game and no real story. The game is for those that like to explore. Its a simple click here and there game to see what happens when you click on certain things. While on your exploration you will run into unique creatures that will put a smile on your face when you meet them. The game is more geared towards children and how they like to explore. The game is great for any parent wanting to entertain a child for a period of time. I highly recommend getting this game in pack with other games and get it for creativity of this exploration world that you get tossed into. I loved playing it and exploring the many areas of this game.

I was on the streets alone and addicted to crack...i was slipping away from reality. Then I found Manhole....changed my life. It was installed on a library computer. Floppy disk. It was love at first site. The unfound glory unto which brought me back from the brink of destruction. The indepth story line and amazing character development made me whole again. I love everything about this game....I LOVE YOU MANHOLE. MAAAAAAAANHOOOOOLEEEEEE

MANHOLE IS LOVE
MANHOLE IS LIFE
MANHOLE....IS MY PRECIOUS

10/10 would play this game again

Mentally challenged? Think you're faster than the color red? Enjoy drooling on yourself?

If you answered yes to two or more of the above questions, "The Manhole" is the game for you.

The title, are you ♥♥♥♥ing serious? Also, this meth head bunny is the worst thing to happen to America (since Canada).
