Can you face the skeletons in your closet? Do you recover from Freudian slips? In Weird Dreams, Medalist International drops you into the subconscious mind of a hospital patient undergoing surgery. Your ability to confront the demons in the patient's mental underworld-psychopathic lawn mowers, little girls who aren't all sugar and spice-affects his health on the operating table. Interpretations of this game are welcome but, according to the authors, are entirely subjective (a sort of high-tech Rorschach test). Weird Dreams, $39.95. Medalist International, 180 Lakefront Drive, Hunt Valley, MD 21030, (301) 771-1151.
Welcome to the subconscious zone! A patient's life or
death depends on your interpretation of his Weird Dreams.
Deliver papers to subscribers (and smash the windows of non-subscribers) in Paperboy, Mindscape's long-awaited ST adaptation of the arcade hit. Among other obstacles on your route, you'll face cars, bicycles, irate housewives, cats and lawnmowers. You can earn extra points on the "Paperboy Training Grounds," but be prepared for the unexpected. Paperboy, $49.95. Mindscape, 3444 Dundee Road, Northbrook, IL 60062, (312) 480-7667.
