(The Adventures of) Buckaroo Banzai (Across the 8th Dimension)
by Adventure International
Probably the most difficult of Adventure International's late releases to
find (with the possible exception of Return
to Pirate's Isle, which was only published by Texas Instruments for
the TI-99/4A). Based on the film of the same title, about a neurosurgeon /
rock star / superhero and his rocket car, itself a cult classic.
Some confusion and disagreement exists among game historians as to where
this title fits in AI's library: As Adventure #14 (which Texas Instruments
perhaps incorrectly assigned to RtPI), as #41 (the start of a new
AI numbering scheme), or as a complete stand-alone, not part of any series.
In my last e-mail exchange with Scott Adams (fall of 2000), he informed me
that #41 was the correct designation. But read the Shocking True Story
(TM) on Adventureland
and decide for yourself.
