  1. Insane, mutant tentacles. A frozen hamster. Three distinct playable characters. Time travel. Fake barf. Truly, this game has it all. One other thing Day of the Tentacle has in no short supply is charm. It's got that in spades. Everything about this game just comes together beautifully.
  2. Yet another one of LucasArts's masterpieces. The humor, the sound, the graphics, and the puzzles blend together to make Day of the Tentacle a must-play for any adventure lover.

    It's one of those games that will capture you utterly, and take you along on a wonderfully entertaining ride and, in my opinion, it shouldn't be missed by any self-respecting adventurer with a good sense of humour. If you've already played it, then play it again, if you haven't, then there's a real treat waiting in store.

    One hell of a game. Stop the IRS, end human slavery, and a dramatic final showdown with huge tentacles. Sounds like a recipe for some perveted anime, but it's nothing of the sort. Rather it's just one freakish and funny ride into the minds of Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer.
  5. Playing the game is a lot of laughs, and is the perfect pick me up after a long day playing intensely dramatic games.
