The Pagemaster (Genesis)

Like the concept of a nerdy kid in horror, pirate, and fantasy worlds, but man, the platform action is really poor. So many arbitrary rules. It's like they were trying to tick off every box on the bad design list!

Haven't heard of the game... is it a movie tie-in? Wasn't there a Macaulay Culkin film like this?

I take it that ad in Game Players prompted you to pick this one up. I've never played the game, but like TheEagle noted it is a tie-in to a mid 90s movie starring Macaulay Culkin. I haven't seen the movie either, but it was about a kid (Culkin) getting sucked into animated stories and having to adventure his way back to real life. The movie bombed and was one of the last he did as a child actor.
