Ok. The 9/10 score is probably more nostagia than anything. That said, this game holds up surprisingly well. The graphics are what you expect from an 8-bit game and the sound is what it is. The real star though (no, not Mike Tyson), is the fun still to be had in timing and memorizing the patterns and figuring out when to use your uppercuts, dodge, swing left/right, or block. Considering the limits of the NES controller, it’s pretty amazing what they did here. And no, I still can’t beat Iron Mike after all these years. I only new one kid who could. His name was Jason Montgomery and he was a video game savant.
Who knew a blank, black screen could be so entertaining? “Blindscape”, by creator Gavin Brown, is an iOS and Android game where players use their sense of hearing, not their vision, to play (http://www.blindscapegame.com).
If you’re a fan of Red Dead Redemption, you won’t be able to pass this by. The style and setting of the game is the same as the original with the various missions and ways to earn what you need (in this case ammo), but there are new weapons, and of course, zombies. There was obvious strong attention to detail while playing this game. It is unapologetically campy, which is wonderful, and the gore is what every zombie lover could hope for.
