Today in 1989 a video game was released in small relation to Mark Twain’s beloved and, I would imagine, banned book by the same title. Now you could play your way down the Mississippi River while making light of a horrific time in American History, all while in the comfort of your own home!
“Tom Sawyer’s famous literary exploits come to life in this adventure where you play Tom Sawyer (or Huck Finn in a 2 player game). The adventure begins in Tom’s dream while he sleeps in school.
Control in this typical platform game consists of jumping and throwing rocks. Avoid many obstacles such as rolling barrels; defeat persistent enemies such as pirates, mice, and even a giant octopus. Help Tom navigate down the Mississippi River, through forests, haunted houses, and the sky above.”
