The Manhole is a children's game created by Cyan (now Cyan Worlds). The player opens up a manhole, which reveals a giant beanstalk that can be traversed to visit strange worlds.

There were three versions of the game released, each one developed with a different game engine:

  • The original EGA version (released in 1989), with an earlier version of the MADE engine
  • The "New and Enhanced" version (released in 1992), with a newer version of the MADE engine
  • The CD-ROM "Masterpiece Edition" (released in 1994), which used a hypercard-like engine. This version includes QuickTime videos as well.
