购买 Time Gentlemen, Please! and Ben There, Dan That! Special Edition Double Pack



"An extremely profane and hugely funny take on those 90s LucasArts point and click adventures, full of love and joy for the whole genre."


one of the most outrageous games I've ever played and for that alone I love it.
- PC Zone – 90%

Funnier than any game in years, and delightfully rude. Point-and-click adventuring done right for a change.
- PC Gamer – 87%

pitch perfect comedy writing…they truly understand how to exploit the genre’s strengths… an indie masterpiece.

...excellent scripting, consistent, cartoony design and delight in overtly, overly referential absurdity…even the Telltale titles are clunky and formulaic compared to the anarchistic invention of games like this...
-Eurogamer.net — 9/10

虽然是Double Pack,但实际上这两个游戏是类似上下集的关系,没办法在Steam上单独购买。这个包在库里是两个游戏,游戏时间是分开统计的,但是共用一个社区中心和商店界面,而且必须两个游戏都玩过才能写评测。其中Ben There, Dan That! 先出,Time Gentlemen, Please! 是几年之后出的续作。虽然媒体评分惊人的高,不过个人觉得大部分分加在还是复古向AVG和英式荒诞的结合上,游戏本身一般般(不过挺独特的)。喜欢这个类型的可以尝试一下Edna & Harvey系列,也可以看出来英德两国人民的幽默观。



剧情是很典型的荒诞风格:BTDT里 Ben 和 Dan 是一对住在伦敦的好基友,某天看电视的时候发现没信号了,于是Ben做了一个山寨天线,结果没想到引发了时空穿越。 而最后发现最终大Boss是某个未来时间线里的自己,在这个时间线里他俩统治了世界 而TGP中Ben 和Dan为了挽回未来自己犯的错误,于是又开始了新一轮的时空穿越。两部曲如果不卡关的话大约 8h 左右通关,最后的结尾出人意料的是温馨HE。我个人非常喜欢这种风格,不过对英式幽默无感的或者节操水平太高的就……hmm。

解谜方面,本作是异常传统的点点点模式:右键切换不同互动方式,完全靠对话和观察环境来获得提示;除了物品栏和主选单之外没有多余系统。谜题本身难度尚可,BTDT里的谜题比较简单,TGP里花样更多一些。但是部分互动点小的要死(游戏本身窗口也不大),各种切换操作也是毁鼠标+毁手不倦,说实话挺恶心的;而且时间长了之后会有点烦= = 话说个把谜题的节操…… 番茄酱满天飞,拿死老鼠做Sex Doll 和拿安全套吹气球什么的啊喂少儿不宜啊!


简言之,本作经常进包or打折,性价比还算不错;但是游戏全篇都是英式幽默、整体节操值比《小不列颠》还低,解谜又是传统到爆的老式文字AVG,没攻略卡关卡到死。所以我个人的建议是…… 如果英语(尤其是对英式幽默的理解度)不好或者对这种点点点无爱的话就别买了,这游戏喜+1不丢人。

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

These are some of the funniest games i've ever played. Unfortunately they are criminally underrated, and should be considered among the best in the adventure point and click genre.

Just get them!

Probably my favorite point-and-click, Time etc + Ben etc has great environments, witty dialogue and a silly storyline. Hugely underrated, and it goes to like £0.10 in the sales. Definitely worth that, and I'd say it's worth a fair bit more than what the full price is.
Get it.

If you don't like point and click adventures, you won't like this. If this is among your first point and click adventures, you won't understand or appreciate this game. Play a few others first. At the very least, play the Monkey Island series first.

These two games contain two types of humor: absurd, potty humor and jokes that poke fun at point and click game design and the thought process of players. Some of my favorite moments in the game happen when Ben and Dan bicker about picking up random objects or trying to combine two very different inventory items. Ben and Dan frequently break character to talk about the merits and downfalls of the genre. They are aware that they are living in an adventure game world. I view these games as commentary on point and clicks first and a ridiculous tale about time travel, aliens, and Hitler second. The art style feels intentional rather than amateur. One of my favorite aspects of adventure games is the wide variety of art styles, so the graphics here don't bother me at all.

That said, I think that the first game (Ben There, Dan That) is slightly stronger because its jokes don't stoop to the same level of disgustingness as its sequel. Some of the sequel's jokes nearly cross the line and seem to exist for the shock value. I appreciate the humor more when it's better integrated with the point and click meta commentary. There are also a few puzzles which, while funny, aren't very intuitive. Especially in the sequel, you'll be asking yourself "What's my overall goal again...?"

I'd rate both games 4/5. I enjoyed them because I enjoy point and clicks. And when I play other adventure games in the future, I have no doubt that Ben and Dan will be in my mind cracking jokes about the silly inventory items I try to combine out of desperation.

"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.

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.

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.

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.
