Maniac Mansion Uncensored

Hack of Maniac Mansion

Description:

The Expurgation of Maniac Mansion for the Nintendo Entertainment System lists several changes that were made prior to the game’s final release.

The prototype version of Maniac Mansion includes many things which were later removed but a few censored details are still missing. This hack restores those details and improves many of the graphics as well.

The following changes are included:

  • Change the arcade game name to the name suggested
  • Improve the look of the text scrawled in the shower
  • Restore the pennant graphics in Weird Ed’s room
  • Restore several lines of censored text
  • Improve the various portraits in the game
  • Fix glitched room under the house
  • Many other improved graphics

The visual changes in this hack were very tedious and time consuming due to the compression used for both the graphics and room layouts.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Database match: Maniac Mansion (USA) (Prototype)
  • Database: No-Intro: Nintendo Entertainment System (v. 20180803-121122)
  • File SHA-1: EA68E251BAD98CC492E5B88B27F19CFA0D981B3E
  • File CRC32: BBA3EF7E

If you’re someone who is more accustomed to the content of the original Maniac Mansion releases, or fascinated by the changes listed in The Expurgation of Maniac Mansion, this is worth checking out. Worth mentioning that this only works on the prototype ROM; attempting to patch this onto the final game will cause black screens and softlocks in rooms where content has been changed.
