Game Description & Reviews:
Day Of The Tentacle is a point & click adventure game developed by LucasArts, the game was released in 1993. Though it's the sequel to Maniac Mansion, the game is much more wacky and cartoonish, and was developed without Maniac Mansion creators Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman took the helm, and in their directing debut along with their team developed one of the funniest and arguably most well designed PC adventure game in history. The player controls 3 characters that are stuck in the same location in different times in history. Bernard - a classical nerd. Hoagy - a bitching Rock & Roll roady. And Laverne - a scatter brain college student. The player can alter events in the past that will affect the future, as well as exchange items between different periods. The game is based 5 years after the events of Maniac Mansion, but requires no knowledge of Maniac Mansion in order to understand. It starts when mutant monster Purple Tentacle drinks toxic sludge that's pouring out of mad doctor Fred's lab. Purple Tentacle grows a pair of arms and gains a vast boost in intelligence as well as thirst for global domination and human enslavement. Dr. Fred sends word to Bernard to come to his lab. Fred plans to send Bernard and his friends to very near past using his time machine in order to turn off the Sluge-O-Matic which will prevent Purple Tentacle from gaining his powers. But things go wrong while attempting to travel to the near past and Hoagy is sent to 200 years in the past, Laverne gets stuck 200 years in the future, while Bernard stays in the present. The player needs to get all 3 characters to the same time period and stop Purple Tentacle's evil plans from happening. ----PC adventure game's strengths -particularly LucasArts'- tend to lie in their plots, writing and art direction, while the puzzles tend to have some illogical and frustrating moments. DotT on the other hand excells in pretty much everthing with its creative and incredibly clever puzzles being its greatest strength. It's timeless.
