Five years after the adventure in the original Maniac Mansion, the purple and green tenacles stop by a stream in back of the Edison mansion. Drinking the mutagen-polluted water makes the purple tentacle grow arms and become an evil genius bent on taking over the world.
Meanwhile, Bernard Bernoulli and his two friends, Hoagie the band roadie, and Laverne go to the Mansion to free the Tentacle. They manage to do so, but now they must help Dr. Fred Edison by going into the past and shutting off the mutagen pump yesterday.
Unfortunately, there is a little problem. Hoagie gets dumped 200 years in the past, Laverne gets shot 200 years into the future and Bernard gets dumped right back into the present in the chronojohn.
It's up to you to solve the many problems and stop the evil purple tentacle from taking over the world, or even getting mutated in the first place. ~ Lisa Karen Savignano, All Game Guide
