How To Be A Complete Bastard

Adrian Edmondson has gate-crashed a yuppie party. His admirable aim is to be as obnoxious as possible! By searching the house, useful items can be found. Lager makes our hero as sober as a newt, while curry builds up methane levels in his body! Four gauges must also be topped up during the game: the weeeometer, drunkometer, fartometer, and smellometer. Items such as itching powder, laxatives, and sneezing powder can be collected and used against the guests! But some of these activities require Ade to be totally juiced, while for others he must be stone cold sober (a rare event!).

Whether or not you enjoy this game entirely depends on whether you like Adrian Edmondson's type of humour. Personally I enjoy some of his wit, but the game struck me as a bit childish. And graphically the game is no great shaker; a bunch of stick-men wander aimlessly around simplistic backgrounds. How To Be A Complete Bastard may appeal to some fans, but I'd rather watch an episode of The Young Ones.
