Reviews:

The Adrenaline Vault by David Laprad

"The game brings the comic strip's satire and style to the computer with humor and simplicity. Your goal, as an under-appreciated and overworked employee, is to master ten games and activities in order to upgrade Dilbert's Game Machine. To do this, you must continue playing until you've collected seven components and placed them in the Game Machine's Incentive Box. These items are awarded for playing games to their most challenging levels, or for no reason at all (just like the work place). Once you've reached your goal and all seven components are in place, you get to print out an exclusive, personalized Paper Plaque Certificate. If that sounds like a cheap payoff, think of it as the gold watch equivalent of computer gaming. 'Congratulations for your years of dedicated service to our company. Here's your Paper Plaque Certificate.'"

"Would I recommend the acquisition of Dilbert's Desktop Games? Not to hard-core gamers. Yet I can't, in good conscience, issue it a pink slip. An interesting thing happened while I was preparing this review. I suggested to my wife, who considers computer games to be about as culturally significant as cow-tipping, that she play a few of the programs. She spent the next 90 minutes glued to the screen, laughing convulsively, and rejecting my impassioned pleas for her to quit. I spent the next 90 minutes lamenting my suggestion and anxiously pacing the floor as I awaited my turn to play. It's not hard to imagine throngs of office workers crowded around a single monitor, laughing at the antics and in-jokes, and relieving the day's stress with a little self-deprecating humor. In fact, the game may even replace the water cooler as the social center of corporate America! The bottom line is that Dilbert's Desktop Games has strong entertainment value for its intended audience, and yields a healthy measure of satirical fun. It certainly beats working!"
