About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Neighbors From Hell' (NGC/Xbox) - Screens

JoWooD invites players into a world of mishap and mayhem where the practical joker is king. Neighbors From Hell challenges players to solve hundreds of puzzles in order to play the best prank possible in this hilarious animated adventure.

Living next door to Woody are real Neighbours from Hell. Loud, rude and obnoxious are probably their finer qualities, but now Woody has snapped!!

Starring in a fantastic new TV show that meshes Beadles About with Big Brother; cameras track Woody's every move as he sets his fiendish traps upon the unsuspecting residents. Create unparalleled levels of disarray by playing a range of practical jokes, which in turn increase ratings and may even win Woody an all important award.

Woody starts off with easy-to-assemble traps but to keep the audience happy he must go on to construct a prankster's masterpiece. For this he is going to need all his wits about him and beware of watchful neighbours and alert guard dogs; if they catch him then the show will be cancelled.

On a quest for revenge that will take him from his less than cosy neighbourhood to exotic locations like Mexico, China and India, Woody is going to get even – no matter how.

Follow him on his path of slapstick and mayhem performing ever more elaborate tricks. Just make sure he does not get caught, or he will really feel what it means to have Neighbours from Hell.

"The great success of the "Neighbours from Hell" Show on PC-CDROM with more than 200.000 units sold around the world proves the fascination of the usual disputes between neighbours. Everybody knows some annoying and some really mean neighbours – and here`s the chance to celebrate revenge in a very funny and quite challenging way", comments Arnold Pötsch, Product Manager JoWooD Productions.
