(The Adventures of) Buckaroo Banzai (Across the 8th Dimension)
by Adventure International
(Rainbow-striped box)

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.
