The Edisons Are At It Again

Dr. Fred's mutated purple tentacle is out to take over the world. And only you can stop him. Travel through time with three outrageous characters in this wacky graphic adventure which features cartoon-style animation and zany sound effects.

You must switch back and forth between different times about 400 years apart to thwart the plans of the purple tentacle. Only the stout-hearted gamer with a very warped sense of humor will succeed here. This adventure isn't for anyone rational minded. After all, the Edisons aren't the most normal people around, and the tentacles are certainly not your average evil villains! - Computer Gaming World, September 1993.

Comes with the original, award-winning classic: Maniac Mansion, as a game within a game.

Requirements: IBM and 100% compatibles, MS-DOS 3.1 or higher, MSCDEX 2.1 or higher, double speed CD-ROM drive recommended. 286 minimum, 386 or higher recommended, 2MB expanded memory required, keyboard, mouse or joystick (mouse recommended), 256 color VGA, SoundBlaster, SoundBlaster Pro, AdLib and 100% compatibles. Also supports Roland and General MIDI with MPU-401 MIDI interface or compatible.

Computer Game Review, August 1993

"The game is incredibly funny and you will probably have a couple of belly laughs playing it. One of the best parts about this game is the ability to control all the characters; you are not limited to just the one same old character."

"It would be very difficult to think of something the matter with Day of the Tentacle, and I, for one can't think of a serious problem. The game is of consistently high quality, the animation is superb, the story is funny, and you really get to know the insane characters in the game. Do not let DOTT go by without giving it a shot. It's one of a kind and one in a million."

Computer Gaming World, September 1993

"LucasArts plays the tradeoffs well. Day of the Tentacle is extremely funny without being unplayable, logical without sacrificing the marvelous illogic of cartoondom, and challenging without losing its sense of whimsy. It may not hold up to 50 years, like the cartoons that inspired it, but I expect that this game will keep entertaining people for quite some time to come."
