Day of the Tentacle is a 1993 graphic adventure game, also known as also known as Maniac Mansion II developed and published by LucasArts. It is the sequel to the 1987 game Maniac Mansion. The game was created by Tim Schafer. This game has released in various platforms and the Remastered version was introduced this 2016 for PC, PS4, and PSVita and it was released now by the same company of Tim Schafer (Double Fine Productions). Remastered version includes the voice acting; developer’s commentary, enhanced graphics, and cross save for PS platforms.
The game story follows Bernard Bernoulli and his friends Hoagie and Laverne as they attempt to stop the evil Purple Tentacle from taking over the world. With all the puzzles need to solve in areas in different time, this game became a trending during back then.
Back in 80s or 90s, this game is a typically point and click game since this was originally a PC game. From the story itself, this game is more of puzzle solving game and a little decision for characters next move. With bunch of hilarious and fun reference and game graphics this game caught the eyes of gamers back then. After some changes and numerous remakes, this game added features like joy pad controls, voice dialog, enhanced graphics, and HD screen display.
This game has lots of memorabilia in terms of gaming design that we can compare for today’s game. Though the game story is kind of short (I finished the story for 6 hours), it resembles how good the game design in terms of graphics and controls during back the 90s.
