* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: While it's not a boss, there is a part of the game where a dragon comes right out of nowhere, with no warning. Oh, Sierra...

You start the first game as a press-ganged Manhunter assigned to investigate some murders. This puts you on a track of escaped [[AlwaysChaoticEvil serial]] [[OmnicidalManiac killer]] Phil, lets you find out [[HostileTerraforming Orbs' true intentions]] and lets you eventually clean New York from aliens. The game ends with you chasing Phil in stolen Orbs' ship.

Manhunter's job is tracking down humans, who violate Orbs' laws, and reporting them to Orbs at the end of the day. Implanting tracking disks should've sufficed, but as it turned out, the disks can only transmit the host's location, not the identity. And they don't work underground. Hence the need for Manhunters.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Some sources indicate that the third game was going to be set in Chicago and the fourth and final in London. Others claim London for third and Orbs' homeworlds for fourth.

While the games used the same AGI engine as all the previous Sierra text adventures, they did not employ a text parser. And unlike earlier parserless Sierra adventures, they lacked dialogs, relying on [[GuideDangIt more creative ways]] to give in-game information. Also, they featured then-unique first-person gameplay[[note]]third-person in some of numerous minigames[[/note]], similar to ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'', with many New York and San Francisco landmarks as a background.

* StarfishAliens / Oculothorax: [[http://themanhuntershrine.talkspot.com/uploads/46966/Orb.JPG Orbs that control New York]] look like a head-sized floating eye with an eyebrow-like antennas. [[http://themanhuntershrine.talkspot.com/uploads/46966/Orb2.JPG Orbs in San Francisco]] look more like a floating head with wrinkled forehead, two eyes, nose and mouth. And similar antennas.
