Synopsis

Plot

Inspired by the cult movie The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, this game actually works as a sequel of sorts. As Buckaroo Banzai, an amazing neurosurgeon-cum-rock star-cum-test pilot, you have to repair a rocket car (which takes Banzai into the 8th dimension in the movie) and defuse a nuclear device primed to explode.

Notes

According to Scott Adams, he wasn't very heavily involved in the game's creation.

"Buckaroo Banzai was supposed to be a cult smash from the start and a start of a long series. [a sequel, BB Against the World Crime League, was announced in the movie's credits -Ed]

"They planned to have actual clubs across the country and merchandise etc.

"They did cross licensing in anticipation of that." (Scott Adams, February 2012)

The only known commercial release of the C16 (text only) version of this game is on the very rare compilation tape Scott Adams Scoops.
