Another Lucasfilm-Game - and truly one of the greatest (funniest) Adventures ever made. You - meaning Bernard, Laverne and Hoagie - have got to save the world from being taken over by the tentacles. For doing this, you got to control your team in past, present and future. The only connection between them is the toilet of their Chron-O-John (sort of a timemachine). You meet George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and some other well known guys in the past and got to act in a future, that's ruled by tentacles. Your main problem in the present is Dr.Fred and his family - you might know them from the old game Maniac Mansion.By the way the whole Maniac Mansion-Game is included in Day of the Tentacle, I won't tell you where you can find it, I think you'd better find out for yourself - it's not that difficult.
I hope you've got your Soundcard ready, when you play this game (sorry, sound doesn't work under Win NT - I'm not sure about Win 95/98) coz' it's a shame to play it without HEARING these characters talk. Let Hoagie talk to the mummy and you know what I mean. This game's really weird and I just LOVE it. It's not that easy, but you can master it, it's very logical (in it's own way) you just shouldn't forget, that the whole Time-Travel-Thing is essential and you've got to use it to solve this game. If you love those games where there is something to laugh about in most every screen, while still being challenging to solve, you've got to give Day of the Tentacle a try!
