Maniac Mansion is a very complex game, with an outstanding plot with lots of twists and turns! I highly suggest it to everyone, especially fans of adventurous computer/video games. The fun thing about it is it's such a challenge. I myself had to go to a walk-through 'cheat' site to help me out. In fact, there is such depth in the plot plots that there are like 20-something ways to beat the game. It's smart and very well thought out. I highly recommend it. The original Nintendo NES game is neat, but check out the newer version on PC - and the 2004 released LucasFan version in 256 bit colour. It's the exact same game, but even more advanced! I also recommend other LucasFilm games adventure games (from the late 80's and early 90's), such as Zak Mcracken and the Alien Mindbenders and Loom. Also try the continuation of Maniac Mansion, entitled Day Of The Tentacle.
