Midnight Rescue on Archive.org

Posted by on January 26, 2015

Morty, UTC’s first (and best) antagonist was named after the villain from my favorite computer game as a kid, “Midnight Rescue: A Super Solvers Reading Adventure”. I even directly referenced the game in the title to page XXIII.

In the game, Morty Maxwell, the Master of Mischief, threatens to make his old school disappear at midnight USING ROBOTS AND INVISIBLE PAINT and the only thing that can stop him is your trusty 35mm camera and READING COMPREHENSION.

It’s a great little game, and thanks to Archive.org you can play it right now for free. Unfortunately you can’t save your score and reach the 500,000 Champion ranking like I did on my Tandy 1000, but hey, the real fun comes from peeking at Morty’s creepy diary entries and FIGHTING PAINTBRUSH ROBOTS WITH A CAMERA.
