Carl Williams writes, "For most adventure game fans will know the name of this LucasArts classic. Unofficially titled Maniac Mansion II, Day of the Tentacle was more of the original but with a much more focused storyline. The original featured your choice of several characters, each bringing different abilities and their own twists to the storyline. Day of the Tentacle only gave players three characters but still shoe horned in quite a few twists and turns that were unexpected, but welcome. Now, a certain fan on the Adventure Game Studio forums is recreating this classic point and click adventure but with some interesting tweaks."
