The Growing Pains Of Adrian Mole

He's riddled with spots, in love with Box, and totally overwhelmed by his adolescence. Being a teenager never did agree with Adrian Mole but at least it made him famous. I mean, come on - who can complain with games, books, a musical and a TV series to their name?

The second of two supposed adventure games, Growing Pains turned out to be nothing more than a bit of very funny interactive fiction. That's OK while it lasts, but you don't really influence the story and there aren't what you'd really call any problems to solve. All those well-loved, madcap, zany characters are there but if you really love them all that much, read the books again and don't waste your money on the game. Boom.
