Old school challenge game with a contraption that requires agility moves to bring sleepwalking Sam to safety. If you remember mousetrap and liked it, you'll love this. Fun times!

One of my childhood favorites. Got dexterity?

Remember this fondly from my childhood. Found a NEW copy on E-Bay (very lucky) in August 2008. Gave it to my kids for Christmas 2008. It was a big hit. Fun little dexterity game.

This game was pure genius when I was a kid! Wind up the guy and set him on his path. A total dexterity game where timing the turning of the platforms is key. The hardest part was the ending, you'd have to line up the hook with the guy's wrench as he plunged off the edge, a little off and all the hard work goes for naught! Really cool mechanisms, especially the fact that the elevator has to be manually lifted by a string. Got to be one of the most unique games ever.

This in one of those 'is it real?' memories. I thought I may have played with my cousins in my youth (YEARS ago). Have I not been recalling correctly? ... but I found it here on the Geek and my memory has been vindicated!

What an ingenious dexterity game, teasing in its game play; another brilliant piece from Marvin Glass studios wonderful in conception and a knock out to look upon.
