Overall mildly-amusing point-and-click adventure game with big sacfuls of English toilet humour. If you played Secret of Monkey Island in your younger years, you'll probably smile wryly at some of the meta-jokes, but Ben and Dan's puerile take on the world can get a little wearisome after a long session. The graphics are either ironically bad or genuinely constrained by a tiny budget, but they're not without a certain amateurish charm. One for the upper fourth.

These are short, darkly humored tributes to point-and-click adventure games of the past, such as the SCUMM games of the early 90's. It pays to be familiar with those games when you play this.

The British humor (humour?) might not be the most accessible, but the absurdity is funny enough (nazi dinosaurs and such). There is nothing in these games to take seriously, and that is refreshing.

I won't give these games 5 stars out of 5, because the humor does lose its charm if you play too long, they are kind of short, and they managed to perfectly capture the tedium of point-and-click games a little too well. But if you like your humor dry, silly, and crude, and have enjoyed adventure games in the past, it's worth checking out.

Two little adventures games that any fan of the genre will surely enjoy. Lots of cleverly designed puzzles, and enough jokes to make you laugh for a good while.

"Ben There, Dan That!" (BTDT) and "Time Gentlemen, Please!" (TGP) are two connected point & click adventures. The former's shorter, just an intro to the other which offers more of everything. To summarize, both games feature:

- "retro" graphics (as seen in the screenshots) and everything that comes with it (like shoddy, sparse animation)
- no voice acting, just text
- sort of unfriendly controls
- lots and lots of puzzles, which are sometimes non-sensical and/or require some pixel hunting
- crude, morbid and politically incorrect humor... in combination with the visual aesthetics this creates an odd contrast of cartoony lighthearted presentation for otherwise hard R material
- about 10-15 hours of gameplay in total, depending on how often you get stuck

Despite the flaws, the humor and the crazy story make this worthwhile. I found both BTDT and TGP to my liking, and would recommend them - but buy ONLY if you can accept the humor, as it is the focal point of these games!

Short, but fun pack. There are some puzzles that will make you use that brain of yours. I like the stories in them, a little humour, even the graphics. the music is also nice :D

The problems i had were the length of the game (second one you can beat in one-two days or even shorter if you know what you're doing) and that one time where i had to restart the game because I glitched in the cutscene. Also Lack of soundtrack to download. Maybe a minor complain, but I do enjoyed the tunes in those games and would love to hear them outside the game.

Still a good pack to get on sale.

Auch wenns es grafisch nicht sehr gut aussieht sind die beiden Spiele Ben There, Dan That! und Time Gentleman, Please! sehr gute Point&Click Adventures, die man als Fan des Genres gespielt haben sollte. Die Entwickler haben dabei sehr viel mehr Wert auf die Dialoge gelegt als auf eine gute Optik, fast jede Aktion, wie das betrachten eines Ortes oder Gegenstandes oder das Verwenden oder Kombinieren von Gegenständen löst witzige Dialoge aus, besonders wenn die geplante Aktion nicht die Richtige ist. Bei anderen Adventures bekäme man nur ein "das ist nicht möglich" zu hören, bei diesen beiden Spielen wird so etwas mit teilweise tiefschwarzem Humor kommentiert. Da die beiden Protagonisten selbst begeistere Adventurefans sind bekommt man auch nicht selten Kommentare über andere Adventures wie Sam&Max zu hören. Time Gentleman, Please! ist dabei deutlich umfangreicher als Ben There, Dan That!, ist dafür aber auch sehr viel schwerer. Persönlich fand ich allerdings die Story von Ben There, Dan That! gelungener.

Wer Point&Click Adventures mag und mit tiefschwarzem engischen Humor etwas anfangen kann sollte umbendingt zugreifen, beonders jetzt im Sale kosten die beiden Spiele zusammen gerade einmal 35 Cent.

Ich habe nur "Ben There, Dan That!" gespielt und ich muss einfach sagen, dass es bei mir nicht gezündet hat. Die Witze fand ich nicht lustig, vielleicht weil sie zu sehr auf 'Merica abgezielt sind und die Dialoge waren auch zu lang. Jede geschaffte Handlung muss ewig durchgesprochen werden, ewig diskutiert und ewig beschmunzelt werden. Gegen Ende war ich einfach nur noch genervt und habe das meiste irgendwann weggeklickt. Ein anderer Punkt, war die kleine Auflösung. Ich sage nichts gegen die Paint Optik, noch was gegen den "Retro"-Stil, mit beidem kann ich mich anfreunden, aber mit einer Auflösung von 680x4xx aber eben nicht. Auf meinem 1920x1080 Monitor war es erstaunlich schwierig, das Spiel zu geniesen. Es war so winzig, ich habe mich zu schnell ablenken lassen.
Der Schwierigkeitsgrad war so lala. Es war nicht ganz einfach, aber auch nicht das schwerste, wenn man sich dran gewöhnt hat. Die Aufgaben waren klar und wenn man erstmal aus der "Wohnung" kommt, wird es relativ simpel.
Das ist echt nur was für Liebhaber und leider gehöre ich nicht dazu.
Wenn ihr doch spielen wollt, solltet ihr ein gutes bis sehr gutes englisch haben. Nicht so ein bisschen Englisch, sondern ein Englisch, das komplexe englische Sätze versteht, ansonsten werdet ihr das Spiel überhaupt nicht verstehen.

This is a review of the first game of this bundle: Ben There, Dan That.

Ben There, Dan That! is an adventure game in the purest tradition of the genre. If you’ve played LucasArts adventures in the 90’s, you are in familiar territory (and also, lucky). Same if you played 90’s Sierra titles (except you weren’t so lucky). Indeed, you’ll find again every emblematic ingredient: look/use/talk/walk commands, inventory management, branching dialogs, humour…

The story begins with our two heroes, Ben and Dan (who happen to be digital incarnations of the game designers) coming home from a jungle expedition, just in time for watching Magnum P.I. on the TV. Unfortunately, the aerial is broken and you must help our heroes fix it. It very soon happens that Ben and Dan get abducted by aliens in the process. They (and you) must therefore navigate through alternative dimensions if you want to go back home.


There are three areas in which Ben There, Dan That! shine. The first is its humour. It is plentiful and very funny. It touches on many topics and doesn’t avoid controversy (positive discrimination of handicapped workers gets laughed at, for instance). It’s neither politically correct nor polite. Ben and Dan are not above “♥♥♥♥♥” and “♥♥♥♥♥♥” jokes. So it may not be to everyone’s taste. Most of the humour, however, consists of meta-jokes, aimed at adventure game mechanisms themselves. Those are equally funny, although by the end of the game, that theme will have overstayed its welcome. It also means you probably won’t enjoy the game that much if you’re not an adventure game veteran.

The second remarkable feature is the puzzles themselves. Despite the completely bonkers story, the puzzles remain logical and avoid frustration for the player, without feeling childish like the recent horde of “casual” adventure games. I didn’t need a walkthrough in order to beat this adventure and I never stayed stuck for long. Despite the relative easiness, my intelligence never felt insulted. It was therefore the perfect balance for me.

Polish is the last award-deserving area. In other adventure games, when you are bumping against a particularly devious (or illogical) puzzle, it is common to start trying everything, using every inventory item on every element in the room. Here, because the puzzles are not very difficult, it is rarely necessary to do so. But I encourage you to adopt that behaviour nonetheless. Because almost all combinations, stupid or smart, have been thought of by the developers and there is almost always a funny line of dialog to reward any desperate action. It’s really remarkable, as other games too often punish you with something bland, along the lines of “I can’t do that” whenever you try something original/stupid.

There are weaker aspects to the game though. The story is unimpressive. And despite their individual qualities, the environments (or “rooms”) lack coherence. The game universe feels disjointed and the “parallel dimensions” premise doesn't really excuse that.

I'm not a big fan of the technical aspects either. The art style is primitive and something of an acquired taste. The backgrounds are made to look goofy but mostly they are bordering on the ugly. I got used to it in the end, but it means I didn't get a very good first impression. The animations are very basic, and frankly idiotic. I know some will defend them, but to me it looked stupid without looking funny. The best that can be said about the music is that it is unobtrusive. It must also be said that there is no voice acting, but that can hardly be held against the game.

If you can live with the graphics, and if you've played enough adventure games to appreciate the meta-humour, then by all means, I recommend you purchase the game. It's funny and it's designed with care and attention to details. It's enough to pleasantly fill the better part of a lazy Sunday afternoon.

If you like British humour, you're going to love this. The writing is clever and it's one of those rare things - a FUN point and click game. It's not something only Telltale can do, I know, I'm just as surprised as you, dear reader!

Anyway, it's a couple of currecies, and totally worth the tiny price. I enjoyed it so much that I even went to their site and gave them MORE money because honestly, I feel like they're selling it way cheaper than it's worth.

Ben and Dan are a pair of seasoned point-and-click adventurers who also happen to be your average British smartasses – though their jokes tend to be noticeably dumber (in a good way) and dirtier (again, in a good way). While trying to fix their TV in time for a relaxing episode of Magnum, P.I. they set off a chain of events which leads to the universe-hopping and time-jumping plots of Ben There, Dan That! and its sequel, Time Gentlemen, Please! The places and times they visit get sillier and sillier, but who really needs a deep plot when you've got good jokes?

Heavily influenced by classic point-and-click adventure games, both of the Ben and Dan games take their sense of humor and game feel from those old titles. Every line is a bad joke, an embarrassing pun, or an eye-rolling bit of meta-humor, and it's all a blast to read. The writing hits that perfect tone of "smart in the dumbest way" and keeps the energy high with line after line of funny, stupid goodness. It's hard not to be impressed with the writers when the necessary evil of attempted item combinations yields lines that are just as funny as the main dialogue. There must be thousands of lines across both of these games, and I can't think of even one that I didn't enjoy. The art style works into this, too, with a rough look that is nevertheless very charming, colorful, and quite cohesive across every level.

Of course, while old adventure games were remembered for their writing and aesthetics, their gameplay isn't remembered quite so fondly. Unfortunately, Ben and Dan sometimes dive headfirst into those nasty pitfalls. For every few puzzles that goes along smoothly and logically, there will be a puzzle that will absolutely stump you, leading to far too much time mucking about in an overflowing inventory or with the finicky interface. The later puzzles of both games tend to throw logic out the window and require solutions that, while amusing once you know about them, are basically impossible to find without a walkthrough. Still, despite taking the bad with the good of the classic adventure genre, I'd say that the good is easily good enough to outweigh some awkwardness in design. Worthy new entries into a near-forgotten genre.

Time Gentlemen, Please! and Ben There, Dan That! are two separate games in that follow our heroes Dan and Ben as they attempt to simply watch a marathon of their favorite TV show Magnum P.I. While rigging up a makeshift television antenna, our heroes transported to an alien ship, to different eras and to different dimensions. As they try to solve their way back to their own home and return to a much needed television break. (Alice in Wonderland type traveling)

Gameplay is like standard point and clicks. You interact with objects, sometimes bring them along or use them on other objects or NPCs. There are puzzles but not too difficult to solve which jokes and riddles. Some may be a bit tough, but in hindsight it's "why didn't i see that or get that joke". The story is easy to follow and easy to pick up.

These games are filled with humor and quick quips about the events around them. Dan Marshall and Ben Ward do a marvelous job integrating humor into their game. The game may not be for everyone but for people who like jokes and like point and click adventures, this game is worth buying and worth your time trying. It's light on your wallet and can give you a few laugh in the few hours you play through this game.

Only issue may be if you don't really get the humor that can be off-putting. Some humor may be seen more mature. But simply you will recognize in time, it is a lot Dan and Ben taking shots at the environment, npcs, and each other.

Definite must play. Especially at the price.

Also, there is a rumored third game coming soon. - You can follow Dan Marshall @danthat - and see what he has in store for the future adventures of Dan and Ben.

First things first: If you are new to the Point&Click-Adventure Genre, you should not start with this.
Ben and Dan are obviously two veterans of the genre and the games pretty much expect some basic knowledge from you.

I cannot call myself a veteran, but I made it through both games, but I have to admit, that some (or maybe some more) of the puzzles can be mindbendingly puzzling and/or irritating.
I kinda think that that should be part of a P&C, though.

The story itself is pretty hilarious and totally crazy. I think the humour is kinda British but I didn't really have trouble with it. I found the game very funny.

Unless you want this to be your first impression of Point & Click adventures, do get it!

"Ben There, Dan That!", the first game, was actually the better of the two I think. They've both got the same awful (mostly on purpose) graphics, and annoying UI, but the writing was better in the first game. "Time Gentlemen" had way more backtracking and the humour was less clever and more of the fart joke type of humour. Still, for the very, very cheap price I paid for this I can't complain. Definitely enjoyed "Ben There, Dan That!" a lot more, although I can't say I recommend the games unless you can pick them up for roughly the ridiculous price I paid of 40c. Otherwise, there are better adventure games out there.

Not the greatest point-and-click adventures I've played. Granted, I paid maybe a dollar or two, but most of my time spent with them was disappointing. The humor and writing is pretty decent, but the puzzles are nonsensical and the gameplay is irritating (it's one of those games that has about six or seven actions you have to scroll through to find the thing you're supposed to be doing). The art is awful but I suppose deliberately so, and I got used to it. Still, not a ton of fun, unless you're hardcore into this sort of game.

These two titles are part one and part two of a single point-and-click adventure game featuring good British humor, several references to classic games of the past, okay puzzles and interesting moments. Both games should take you around 6-7 hours to complete. If you enjoy the genre, you will like this double pack.

Time Gentlemen, Please! and Ben There, Dan That is an adventure game pack that has a very peculiar art direction as well as humor. Like many other games of this genre, the puzzles aren’t particularly hard but they are ridiculously arbitrary; more so in this game than in others. As a result, some players may have a hard time figuring out how to solve a problem because it’s not very obvious. The story is extremely over the top, one plot example is the main characters traveling to a different timeline to stop Hitler and his dinosaur army. The art appears to be very experimental, but does have a sense of style to it. That can be bad or good depending on what you consider art to be. The humor is very British and adult so unlike Sam & Max I can’t recommend this to children’s. Overall a good title to buy if you are hardcore in to the Adventure genre, for everyone else steer clear as you will likely not play this game beyond the intro menu.
