Trivia

The Corley hovercraft sound effects were a combination of a wah-wah pedal, a dust-buster, a hairdryer, and an X-Wing in flight from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). See more »

Goofs

If Ben fires the machine guns on Ripburger's semi, Ripburger will laugh and remark "I think you just killed a seagull!" But other than coastal areas, gulls are generally not native to arid desert environments, like the game's location. Yet the remark could have been just blatant sarcasm. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ben: [narrating] Whenever I smell asphalt, I think of Maureen. That's the last sensation I had, before I blacked out: the thick smell of asphalt. And the first thing I saw when I woke up was her face. She said she'd fix my bike. Free. No strings attached. I should have known then that things are never that simple. Yeah, when I think of Maureen I think of two things: asphalt... and trouble.

great, but not in usual level of Lucasarts' adventures
24 May 1999 | by tundra-3See all my reviews

This is somewhat funny comic adventure. The problem is however, that it's very easy and linear to play. It is basically set into 4 different episodes (your inventory gets lost in each episode), but it lacks the depth. There isn't really anything to do except to solve those linear (easy) problems, and then it's all over. And the ending is quite disappointment for a Lucasarts adventure. But hey, if you like heavymetal, go and get it.
