Summary

A ludicrously funny romp through time!

The Good

The best thing about this game was the name of the time machines. How could anyone resist travelling in a Chron-O-John? Little jokes like that, along with funny sight gags, such as Bernard scratching himself or Hoagie belching if you leave him alone for too long, are evidence of the great effort put forth by the developers of this game.

The game's storyline flows very smoothly with fabulously done cut-scenes. I thought it was awesome when I reached the first scene after finding Dr. Fred's secret lab. Who can forget Hoagie hanging ten in his Chron-O-John?

Another bonus was that you actually play the old Maniac Mansion while playing DOT!! Of course, you also have to use Maniac Mansion's poor mouse interface,

The Bad

Nothing, really. A very fulfilling computer entertainment experience.

The Bottom Line

A great game that you definitely should rush to play if you can get your hands on it.
