Day of the Tentacle Remastered (PS4/ Vita)
Sony has finally outed what games PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download for free as part of the Instant Games Collection of January 2017. And while a free game is always worth checking out if you’re stuck for something to play, you may be wondering just what these titles are, and if they’re worth your time.
Day of the Tentacle Remastered is a remaster of the original released back in 1993 by LucasArts. For those unaware, the game is a stylish time travel puzzle adventure that sees three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil purple tentacle from taking over the world. It’s wacky, off-the-wall, and a great load of fun. What’s more, those who remember the original will be pleased to know this edition allows you to switch between the classic and remastered versions. That means the audio, visuals, and UI’s can be mixed and matched to suit your preferences.
Most importantly, though, is Day of the Tentacle Remastered any good? Most agree that the title is rather charming, filled with humor and successfully retaining the magic of the original. It’s definitely worth your time if you’re looking for a way to pass an evening.
