Moop And Dreadly: The Treasure On Bing Bong Island Hulabee Entertainment / Plaid Banana Entertainment 2002

From a group of former Humongous Entertainment employees comes a kid-oriented adventure in the style of such classics as the Freddi Fish and Putt-Putt series. Moop, a giant purple thingy who can't speak English but does most of the thinking between the two, and Dreadly, a preteen buccaneer looking for treasure, search for the Golden Glockenspiel, but face competition from the dastardly Captain Trench. As is classic with these sorts of games, much hilarity does, in fact, ensue. The game is divided over six chapters featuring colorful, cartoony graphics and easy, lighthearted puzzles. The developer of this game, Ron Gilbert, has a resume as long as your arm. He is responsible for the Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion, better known as SCUMM, which changed the face of the adventure game world as we know it. He worked in the early days for LucasArts, creating “little known” titles Maniac Mansion, Zak McCracken and the Alien Mindbenders, the Indiana Jones series, Loom, the Monkey Island series, Day of the Tentacle, and Full Throttle. Moving on to Humungous and then to Hulabee, he created many of their Putt Putt and Freddie Fish titles. This game gives the impression that it's an homage to such 1960's children's classic cartoons as Gerald McBoing Boing and Beany and Cecil.
