  • Summary: What’s worse than finding out that your future evil selves have set about a series of events that wipes out all human life on the planet? Going back in time to fix things with half a mind on preventing coathangers from ever being invented, and accidentally setting up an alternate-universe Hitler with an unstoppable army of dinosaur clones instead, that’s what! Whoopsie! [Zombie Cow Studios] Expand

  1. TGP! is an improved LSD trip through the same cracked territory, but with a longer, better story and overall craftier puzzle design.
  2. I was pleasantly surprised. [Jan 2010, p.86]
  3. Past the wordy stuff, the way the game is presented is second to none - there's a mix of animation and drawing styles in the cut-scenes and credits that evokes old-school LucasArts, and the in-game animation/design is kooky and amusing but rarely disturbing.
  4. Funnier than any game in years, and delightfully rude. Point-and-click adventuring done right for a change. [Sept 2009, p.74]
  5. The final product put together by the folks at Zombie Cow Studios is the definition of a game that's greater than the sum of its parts. Pick it apart and you have subpar graphics and minimal sound. Put it together and you have something completely different: a charming, fun, and comical adventure wrapped with loads of nostalgia that was obviously created by a team with a passion for what they do.
  6. Let us remind you of the prince of this gem: 2.99 quid. Buy it, you tight wad. [Issue#25, p.57]
  7. This game is sure to delight some old-school gamers out there.

    Two absolute bare bones point-and-click adventures. If you aren't into British humor, it is probably going to be painful to read through the game dialog. But if you like Benny Hill / Monty Python type humor, they are bearable. Although separate games, they really should be treated and played as one single long adventure since Time Gentlemen, Please! is an immediate sequel to the much shorter Ben There, Dan That! Combined, these two games hold overwhelming entertainment value for their wild and crazy adventures, completed by truly bizarre and humorous inventory item uses. In comparison Ben There, Dan That! is simply a prototype for the much more refined Time Gentlemen, Please!, but together they complete a highly enjoyable adventure game. They take me back to simpler times when games like Space Quest and Leisure Suit Larry were king. Expand

    This is simply put "moronic" humor. I'm so very grateful that I only spent .50 cents per game on Steam. I've actually had "dreams" that were far more funny than this feeble attempt at humor. Maybe this will appeal to the younger age group, or maybe dry British humor. I don't really know, but I find it to be an hour of my life wasted playing this pile of dung, that I'll never get back. Total crud. Expand

    Really annoying game, with mediocre humor and uninspired story. (5 minute into the game and already 2 two jokes regarding about the male reproductive system) There is no point in reviving the point-and-click genre if you don't have a good idea. Expand
