Welcome to The Manhole! From the creators of Myst, The Manhole is a silly, delightful, interactive, busy-box-of-a-world that kids can explore and explore - finding something new around every corner.
This award-winning romp transports children to the fanciful world around, above, and beneath what appears to be just an average, everyday, manhole. But there is much more than meets the eye - have tea with a rabbit, wake up a walrus, nibble biscuits with a dragon, hang with a penguin, boat with an elephant, speak French with a turtle, and much more!
First released in the 80's, the original version won rave reviews and numerous awards including "Best New Use of a Computer" from the Software Publishers Association. This Masterpiece Edition was produced in the 90's as a ground-up re-make of the original with meticulous computer-rendered scenes layered with delightful hand-rendered characters. There are over 30 original music compositions and scores of original sounds and voices.

+ Fix for crash when skipping intro movie
I loved this game as a kid and played it for hours on end! What a joy to have it on a mobile device! Just wandering around and listening to the music is a great way to de-stress and stroll down memory lane!
I loved The Manhole when I had it years ago and eagerly downloaded it when I saw it would work on my iPad… only to discover NO SOUND - unless earphones or external speaker are used. Since the music is the very best part of The Manhole this makes it utterly useless IMO. Please fix!!
