Dr. Fred’s mutated purple tentacle is about to take over the world, and only you can stop him!
Originally released by LucasArts in 1993 as a sequel to Ron Gilbert’s ground breaking Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle is a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game in which three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world!
Now, over twenty years later, Day of the Tentacle is back in a remastered edition that features all new hand-drawn, high resolution artwork, with remastered audio, music and sound effects (which the original 90s marketing blurb described as ‘zany!’).
Players are able to switch back and forth between classic and remastered modes, and mix and match audio, graphics and user interface to their heart’s desire. We’ve also included a concept art browser, and recorded a commentary track with the game’s original creators Tim Schafer, Dave Grossman, Larry Ahern, Peter Chan, Peter McConnell and Clint Bajakian.
Day of the Tentacle was Tim Schafer’s first game as co-project lead, and a much beloved cult classic! This special edition has been lovingly restored and remade with the care and attention that can only come from involving the game's original creators.
What's New in Version 1.2
Get languages to show up in the store. No functional changes.
The only bug is as follows: when Hoagie receives a particular document from the present, it doesn't show the jon as backed up. Oh,and if you do the tooth puzzle before chopping down the tree, the cut sequence doesn't show the teeth chattering as they should have been. There. Minor, you say? Extremely minor.
The only reason I mention these ridiculously minor bugs is to show you how much I know this game. I played it through twice, the second time with commentary on. Yes, it's worth it doing that too.
This is one of the best adventure games in the history of gaming. The remastered edition makes the graphics perfect for today. I kept thinking how the little mannerisms of the characters, the voice acting (superb) and the amazing story, how they all tied up to make you laugh and enjoy yourself for hours.
Try not to cheat, and the enjoyment will be ten times as much, trust me.
This is my second Lucasarts game after Grim Fandango, and I cannot wait to see what else they have on the iPad.
Worth every penny ten times the amount. If you like adventure games even remotely...
Do not miss this game!
Awesome game - but thanks to stupid iOS update...
we can no longer view the game center achievements for this game (and their was a ton!)...basically, I think the devs need to add a link to their game center achievements for in-game like other apps have to keep dumb iOS update from deleting fun game center achievements.
Bought this a few days ago on a whim with no reviews. I was nervous it was going to be an awful port that was unplayable. Boy, was I wrong. It's as flawless as the original and the remastered graphic are amazing. From the same team as Grim Fandango, I can only hope they remake Sam & Max or another great Lucas Arts title text.
