In case you missed it, Electronic Arts’ Tetris recently dropped to $2.99 (AKA the maximum price it ever should’ve cost). That’s all well and good, but how about a price drop on something today’s gamers really want to play? That’s just what developer Press Play and Microsoft have given us, as Tentacles now costs only 99 cents.
Tentacles is the sequel to beloved adventure game Maniac Mansion. Okay, I only wish it was! Actually, it’s an action game in which players control a microscopic tentacled creature named Lemmy. Due to a perfectly ordinary mistake of science, Lemmy ends up inside the body of his creator, and it’s up to you to get him out.
Unique touch controls allow Lemmy to move one tentacle at a time, grappling onto walls to propel himself and pulling the eyeballs out of enemies to defeat them. With 40 levels, beautiful 3D graphics and 2D story sequences, and an atmospheric soundtrack, Tentacles certainly impressed many gamers when it arrived last year.
If those levels aren’t enough for you, consider grabbing the ‘Dog Eat Dog’ DLC for another buck (actually 80 Microsoft Points). It adds 15 more levels, but no new Achievements. Unless you’re a highly skilled and dedicated Tentacles player, you probably still lack several of the main game’s Achievements anyway.
Why? As mentioned in our review, Tentacles’ difficulty ramps up in later levels (say 20 and on), leading to severe bouts of frustration and, in extreme cases, dysentery. Some gamers totally love replaying levels over and over again to get that one item they missed - but not everybody.
We’ve contacted Microsoft to determine whether the prices on Tentacles and Tetris are permanent or not, and will update this post accordingly. Just in case, you might want to hurry and purchase either title that catches your eye.
