This retro adventure game version of the The Shining is so good

I love CineFix retro game versions of movies. Their 1990s Maniac Mansion style remake of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining is begging for a real version for iPad. I want to play it. Badly.

If LucasArts Made A Game About The Shining...

The remote hotel, where Jack Nicholson and his family spent the winter in Stanley Kubrick's movie adaptation would have been a pretty cool setting for a point and click adventure game.

Thanks to the creative minds at CineFix, I'm feeling slightly guilty for feeling all warm and fuzzy inside what with all the adventure game nostalgia. Still, though, that Jack Nicholson sprite looks evil as hell and this likely could've been one of the spookiest games of its time.
