Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist is one of the games that Al Lowe was the primary writer for during his time at Sierra. Besides of course the Leisure Suit Larry series. This demo version of the full graphic adventure game highlights the mouse-driven interface of the later Sierra titles, shared by other games of the time such as Space Quest IV. This game takes place during the gold rush era, and as usual you click around, die frequently, and eventually give up and use a hint guide. Sierra didn't produce many playable demos for their games; not sure why this one was chosen! But from what I've read it's an enjoyable game with rather obscure and inane puzzles that will perhaps have you reaching for that hint guide sooner than other games.
(Note: I wasn't able to get the sound working in DOSBox, so I chose PC speaker in the setup program. Run SETUP.EXE and try your luck if you want working SoundBlaster or other sounds; you may need to play with DOSBox's options to get it working.)
