Day of the Tentacle Remastered review: Sludge-o-Matic sucker for love

Hayden Dingman | April 25, 2016
Next up: Full Throttle. Right?

The one caveat: You can’t highlight hotspots in the original pixel art.

Bottom line

Day of the Tentacle is a classic, but not in the old musty way where you brush off a copy of some old SNES game and realize it isn’t as good as you remember. This is still one of the finest point-and-clicks ever made, with a witty story and some brain-bending puzzles. Also, a hell of a lot of dumb puns.

As with Grim Fandango, the big news is that Day of the Tentacle’s on sale at all. The fact that Double Fine’s put in so much work as caretaker to bring it up to modern—or at least mostly modern—standards? Even better.
