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.
