Super Duper Games is a new series taking a look at video games I’ve long considered ‘classics’.
Mega Drive – 1991
You take the apple/pipe/life, I’ll take the next one.
Why did you take the apple/pipe/life! That was my one!
*Hits other player with pipe*
Come on, let me hit you back to even it out.
Before you know it you’re both screwed. Don’t even mention accidentally throwing the knife at your partner, putting them in a choke hold, or the worst thing of all…using your special when there’s fuck all on the screen.
It’s got a cracking soundtrack and a moody aesthetic. Well, it does when there aren’t two wrestlers or fire breathing clowns on screen.
I only completed it recently. I was already late for Sunday dinner but my mate and I kept saying “just a few minutes more”. That’s a good game summed up surely?
