Home Alone

Genre: Arcade    |     Year: 1991    |     Publisher: Capstone    |     Developer: Manley Associates
Game Review (written by Eric3) Added on: 11/30/2007
In Capstone tradition, this video game was adapted from a hit movie. Home Alone, the video game was created for DOS and was released by Capstone in 1991, a year after the hit movie Home Alone starring Macaulay Culkin became a global cinematic commercial success.
In the game, following the plot of the movie, you will play the part of Kevin who was accidentally left home alone by his whole family who went on vacation. Two thieves named Marv and Harry will try to break into your house and it’s all up to you to prevent the two burglars from succeeding.
The game involves setting up traps in different parts of the house just like what the lead character in the movie did. Traps include paint cans and other silly items found in the house. You must set up the traps before the clock strikes nine and before the two burglars arrive. All traps must be set in strategic positions to capture the criminals. The goal is to make each criminal fall into 10 traps each. You do this not just by setting up traps systematically but also by leading the crooks to the different traps in the house. At the top of the screen you will see the location of the crooks and the traps. This is practically a cat and mouse

game. During the course of the level, you must also pick up valuable items around the house to prevent the thieves from getting to them first. Once you collect all the items, you are also given access to the next level. When a crook gets his hands on you, the game ends.
The graphics of the game is really good for a game released for DOS in the early 90s. The rooms come with complete details with bright colors that totally match the mood of the game. It’s also pretty good how the movie plot turned out well for the video game. The music isn’t so good but you can always turn it off so it shouldn’t be a reason for anyone not to try this game.
The only downside to the game is that at first, the use of the keys in the keyboard can be very confusing. You need to use the function keys and the cursor keys to set traps, move your character and also to pick up items along the way.
Overall this is a simple, fun game that will remind you just how simple video game challenges can provide you hours upon hours of fun.
