Les Manley In: Search for the King. (computer game) (evaluation)
by Warren Quinlan

As Les Manley, hapless flunky at a TV station, you're caught up in a search for a personality known as "the king" to win a million-dollar prize. To succeed, you'll need to find clues, solve puzzles, and collect items. Great VGA graphics, twisted humor, and sight gags make up for the thin story line and some overly obscure puzzles. Accolade's commitment to animated adventure gaming is evident in the help you can get from its bulletin board, clue book, and hint line.
