BPGE #12 – Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle

The final game this week is another classic LucasArts point-and-click adventure game. The story starts off with two mutated tentacles called Purple and Green tentacle respectively. Against Green tentacles suggestion, Purple tentacle decides to drink out of the toxic sludge. After gaining his flipper arms and vastly improved intelligence he decides to rule the world. The game has some great writing, humour and art style which makes a great game overall.

Currently LucasArts still holds copyright permissions on the game, so you will have to purchase a copy to play it. Unfortunately there isn’t a remake of it just yet like the Monkey Island games received, so the only option would be using ScummVM to run the game. Their official website has all the information you need to get started http://www.scummvm.org.
