When Franz Kafka turned a man into a cockroach in "Metamorphosis," they called it literature. When they do the same thing in a video game, what do they call it? "Bad Mojo." (1M QuickTime Movie)
Chainsaws and automatic weapons are no longer the scariest things in interactive cyberspace. Now, it's insecticide. The complex storyline of this CD-ROM computer game involves your character's sudden, mysterious transformation into a common cockroach crawling around in the seedy and grimy world of "Bad Mojo." Now you're stuck under the refrigerator and wondering how you'll ever walk on the normal number of feet again. Every food stain and cigarette butt may hold a clue to the story's secret.
"Bad Mojo" is ready for Windows '95 and is due shortly for Mac. Play this too long, though, and you might get in the habit of diving under cabinets when the lights go on.
