About the 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.
