Have You Played... Toonstruck

Better than Monkey Island 2.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

As recently decreed by the Unquestionable Authorities as better than Monkey Island 2, it seems that just about everyone should be playing the marvellous Toonstruck [GOG]. But are they? Have you? Played it?

A buoyantly entertaining and superbly structured adventure, in which Christopher Lloyd (yes, him) gets transported into a cartoon world of his own creation. Teaming up with Flux Wildly, voiced by Dan Castellaneta (yes, him), you must thwart the evil Count Nefarious Tim Curry (yes, him) in his attempts to turn the toons evil.

It also features a pre-rubbish Ben Stein, Major Charles Emerson Winchester III himself, David Ogden Stiers, as well as some of the all-time greats of voice acting, Tress MacNeille, Jim Cummings, Frank Welker, Rob Paulsen and Regretsy creator, April Winchell. Seriously, go look up who those people have voiced. It's an all-star cast beyond its obvious stars.

It’s hilarious, it’s smartly designed, the inventory puzzles are ace, and the acting is as stunning as you’d expect from such a cast. It’s a horror that it’s not more popular, and you can put that right by playing it today.
