Those who are new to the genre would do well to give this game a shot as it not only is a classic point-and-click adventure but it is also one of its very best. The writing manages to be both low-brow and a bit crass at times while still being affable and sardonic in others. It has aged extremely well and, better still, it includes the original version of Manic Mansion inside the game. Day of the Tentacle is one of the great ones and whether you're a newcomer or an old hand it is well worth taking the plunge again.

Day of the Tentacle is largely removed from the adventure genre’s shortcomings, such as obtuse puzzle design, though it lacks a certain depth to its story. Nonetheless, its strange premise, witty one-liners, and brain-teasing puzzles help it remain something special.

Much like last year’s treatment with Grim Fandango, Double Fine have successfully restored one of the true classics of the adventure game world and it is glorious indeed. While not as deep and story-rich as last year’s offering, Day of the Tentacle more than makes up for it in humor, style, unique gameplay and a truckload of charm. So put on some Janet Jackson, travel back to an age where adventure games were king and enjoy the ride.
