Podcast: A Night at the Movies

with one comment


This week Fred goes solo because he fell asleep just before recording with Trees, so it was alone or nothing at all.  This week we are discussing movie licensed games that most people don’t know about and that are actually good.  Sorry for the short show but we make up for it next week with a Sonic show complete with guests from across the pond 42 Level One.

  1. You mentioned a cojple of the Die Hard games in this podcast, which reminded me of the Commodore 64 version of the game that I played many years ago.

    Unlike the NES version, which appears to use some of the set pieces and plot from the movie to create an action game, the C64 version follows the movie VERY closely, so close in fact you can actually watch the movie to get clues about what to do in the C64 version! The game is veiwed side on and John has to traverse the different floors, and shot baddies cna be searched for guns, ammo and other items, with an limited inventory at the bottom of the screen showing what McCalen has. It also has a lot of cut scenes from the movie, drawn in the C64’s graphical style, as well as many of the one liners from the movie from both McClane and the bad guys, and comments from the two way radio are shown in the top right of the screen.

    It’s a bit short, being able to be completed in under 10 minutes, but a really good game and faithful re-creation of the movie nonetheless.
