Freddy Hero Welcome to the premier source of information on one of the greatest graphic adventure games ever made! Created by Al Lowe and Josh Mandel of Sierra On-Line, Freddy Pharkas, Frontier Pharmacist brought the adventure platform to a completely new level. Besides tough puzzles that will give even the most seasoned adventure game players a hard time, it featured the best music and graphics of any video game of its time. Here on these pages, you'll find stories, character descriptions, and hints for the game, among many other things. If you have any information on the game that you don't see anywhere on these pages, or if any information is incorrect, don't hesitate to email me.

The background music featured on this site is all in MIDI format (except the music on the story page, which is an MP3), based on music from the original game. If you'd like to turn the music on, there are music controls in the upper-right corner of the site. Your preference will be stored in a cookie so that it will be remembered next time you visit the site.
