Classic adventure from LucasArts
First thing that I thought when I saw this game is "Man, this game is beautiful". And truly, the game really looks amazing. It has beautiful and full colors, such an unique and untypical game design, and fantastic animation. Then I saw it was a game from LucasArts
. Of course. They brought us so many fantastic and beautiful games (the Monkey Island
series being one of them), and this game is no exception. You control three characters, Bernard Bernoulli
and his friends Hoagie and Laverne as they attempt to stop the evil Purple Tentacle
which is a sentient, disembodied tentacle, from taking over the world. The plot may be a bit typical but the gameplay is awesome and extremely fun. I have to note that this is the first game to incorporate voice acting, and they did a damn good job out of it. To this day, the game remains popular in today's gaming culture for its great impact on adventure gaming, its funny and witty dialogues, and the great detail in characterization. The game truly is spectacular. It's very fun and entertaining, while not to challenging or too easy. I recommend this game especially to children for the cartoonish design and animation and for the cool and funny storyline.
