  • Conclusion: Try as it might, however, neither the story or characters really manage to hit the heights of their competition, and Da New Guys ultimately comes across as a pleasant distraction rather than anything to trouble the best.

  • Summary: Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass looks old and plays old. But that is not a bad thing, because this intentionally retro point-and-click adventure from indie developer Wadjet Eye Games has been geared to evoke memories of the glory days of Sierra and LucasArts in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
  • Pros: Effectively harks back to games from the golden age of adventures, Charming story and likable characters, Extremely challenging puzzles, Good voice acting
  • Cons: Puzzles are too obtuse in spots, Retro visuals aren't always easy on the eyes

  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Da New Guys: Day Of The Jackass is a hilarious and satisfyingly cerebral point 'n click adventure game worthy of the genre's golden age. Sadly, it also sports graphics and art direction that would have looked dated and primitive back then.
  • Pros: Cerebral, satisfying common sense puzzling, Superb scripting, engrossing storyline, Brilliant voice work
  • Cons: Horrendous graphics and art design, A couple of weak and forgettable action segments
