Flying Frog Productions Oh, would that TOUCH OF EVIL had really awesome and period appropriate artwork like that picture. It doesn't since it's a Flying Frog game and instead we've got the local DARK SHADOWS fan club dressed up in Party City clearance costumes and layer upon layer of Photoshop effects.

It's too bad, because TOUCH OF EVIL is damn good according to my review at Gameshark.com . It's in the running for Game of the Year, actually, on the strength of its narrative, theme, and atmosphere if not because of its repetitive, unoriginal mechanics.

What the hell, is that Vampire flinching from a flu shot or something? And why the hell is Captainess Lady Sexpot the Piratess so much brighter than every everything else on the box? Who left the CHEESEBALL image filter on, anyway?

Sometime in the early 1980s, MichaelBarnes’ parents thought it would be a good idea to buy him a board game to keep him busy with some friends during one of those high-pressure, “free” timeshare vacations. It turned out to be a terrible idea, because the game was TSR’s Dungeon! - and the rest, as they say, is history. Michael has been involved with writing professionally about games since 2002, when he busked for store credit writing for Boulder Games’ newsletter. He has written for a number of international hobby gaming periodicals and popular Web sites. From 2004-2008, he was the co-owner of Atlanta Game Factory, a brick-and-mortar retail store. He is currently the co-founder of FortressAT.com and Nohighscores.com as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Miniature Market’s Review Corner feature. He is married with two childen and when he’s not playing some kind of game he enjoys stockpiling trivial information about music, comics and film.
