Crazy Nick's Software Picks: Roger Wilco's Spaced Out Game Pack


In the summer of 1992 Sierra combined mini arcade sequences, casino and board games that were originally included in various adventure and Hoyle games, and released these mini compilations as budget releases in blister cards under the title Crazy Nick's Software Picks. These contained a single 3.5" floppy and were released for the PC only. Five such compilations were released. Roger Wilco's Spaced Out Game Pack contains the games Monolith Burger and Ms. Astro Chicken that were originally games included in Space Quest 4: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers, and Sand Skimmer that was included in the VGA remake of Space Quest I: The Sarien Encounter.

The object of Ms. Astro Chicken is to prevent your chicken from being shot down by the crazed farmer, or being eaten by the rabid dog. You avoid these terrible fates by flying overhead and dropping eggs on the offending pair, yielding points. You also have a flying weasel to watch out for! To replenish your egg supply, you need to eat the corn when it appears on the screen. If you score 300 or more points, you complete the game.

The object of Monolith Burger Builder is to make complete burgers by putting all the condiments on the patty as it moves down the conveyor belt, and putting a bun on top when it gets to the end. You can put the condiments on in any order, but you MUST make sure to put the bun on last. If your burger isn't complete by the time Master Burger 2000 inspects it, the burger will be rejected and zapped. If you make too many rejects, you'll be fired.

The object of Sand Skimmer is to move your skimmer across the sand, avoiding the obstacles, as you make your way to Ulence Flats. To play the game, slalom your mouse to either the right of left and then click your mouse button to position your sand skimmer. If you hit any of the smaller rocks, your skimmer will be damaged. The damage meter will indicate how much damage you have taken. Watch out for the large rocks. As the game says, "...they cut you NO slack!"
