  • Summary: A nostalgic throwback to comedy games like The Secret of Monkey Island with the feel and pacing of a Saturday morning cartoon, Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass is a point-and-click adventure with humorous dialogue, clever puzzles, and a quirky art style. Under somewhat sketchy circumstances, Brain -- a member of Da New Guys wrestling trio and the worst brawler in Wrestle Zone history -- has won the title belt. (Not even his teammates Simon and Defender can believe it!) When an angry mob shows up to protest, Brain and the precious belt end up kidnapped. Now it's up to wrestling's most eclectic team to get their buddy back and defend his unlikely title -- not to mention Da New Guys' Wrestle Zone reputation. Expand

    This is a low-budget affair however, make no mistake, but as long as your brain can get over the sound of three British blokes hamming up their lines with conviction, then you'll uncover a decent amount of charm within Da New Guys script.

    Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass carries many of the same high and lows as its retro adventure game forebears.

    A solid oldschool point'n'click game but its visuals are so poor, that even older than dirt Day of the Tentacle kicks Da New Guys' butt. [May 2012, p.65]

    Da New Guy is a fun and thorough point & click that only needs a few more decisive punchlines and a real graphist.

    A lightweight fun distraction that aims high with interesting puzzle variety, Da New Guys is somewhat pinned down by its poor visuals, irritating lead characters and underused plot devices.

    An amateur effort that comes together well in places, but also one that gives no real incentive to buy it. If only the writing was a little funnier. [Apr 2012, p.67]

    Even to the most hardcore of point-and-click fanatics, I cannot wholeheartedly recommend Da New Guys, and if we were still in the '90s this would remain so.

    Da New Guys is a fun little adventure game from my favourite indie dev. I played through the entire game over about 20 hours. Some of the puzzles had me stuck for hours, but overall the game was enjoyable, blending light humour with the 90's wrestling scene. The game occaisionally crashes, and I found one bug, but overall it's well worth buying, especially if you like laid-back puzzle games. Recommended. 8/10 Expand

    I wasnt convinced after seeing the trailer but the game is actually pretty fun with some attaching main characters. Main drawback is the overall art and graphic design and a sometime amateurish feel to the game. However there's some neat puzzle, some original ideas and a few mini games to break from the monotony as well as a pretty solid soundtrack. Expand
