While Green stays away from it, Purple takes a taste of some of it and is mutated, giving him limbs as well as superhuman intelligence. Driven mad by the sudden power rush, Purple sets off to conquer the planet and replace the human race with tentacles. However, Fred captures them, and thinking Green may have been exposed as well, regretfully decides he must euthanize them. Fearing for his life Green sneaks out a telegram to his old friend, nerdish college student Bernard Bernouli. Bernard, bent on rescuing Green, sneaks himself, his med student girlfriend Laverne, and roomate, Hoagie, off campus and drives to the mansion, where Purple and Green are both set free and Purple escapes to go on a rampage.

The best adventure game of all time
25 August 2006 | by (Bronnoysund, Norway) – See all my reviews

I remember buying this game at a trip I did. There it was: A new Lucas Arts game! I have played most of their previous games like Indiana Jones, Maniac Mansion and so on and I bought it instantly. I couldn't wait to get back home to play it. The graphic both amused and amazed me. The plot was great and playing it was funny as hell. After I finished the game, I was somewhat sad. I put it away and hoped I would forget all about how the game was solved and now, "some" years later, I got it as a present from my cousin in a Lucas Arts game box (christmas of 2003). I have not had time to play it until recently, and although I remember a lot of the puzzles, I have forgotten most of it, so the plan worked ;) - Day of the tentacle is a all time hall of fame for adventure games. No doubt. Two thumbs up. WAY up! Pure class.
