Revenge of the License- Stephen King's The Mist

Michael Crisman writes, "Adaptations of Stephen King’s stories have a tendency to, well, suck (not to put too fine a point on it). Translating his material from the printed word to any other medium outside of an audio production is a hit-or-miss proposition with most results ending up firmly in the “miss” column. But we’re all gluttons for punishment, because when they work, boy do they jangle the nerves. When they don’t though? You get Stephen King’s The Mist, developed by Angelsoft and published by Mindscape in 1985. And then you get on the ‘net to look for a walkthrough because oh my digital bits does this text adventure suffer from more problems than a new version of Internet Explorer." (Retro)
