When I saw this month Yokoi Kids were going to be playing Gremlins(TM) 2: The New Batch, I knew I had to join. I was pretty big on Gremlins(TM) as a kid, and still hold it dear… I’m sorry I haven’t done this in a while, we’re talking ‘bout VIDIYA GAMEZ!
First thing about this game— that theme, ooh wee. It really gets kickin! In fact the music in this game is very much on par to what I remember Gameboy games soundtracks being. Fun, exciting, yeah man.. the music.
I first just went ahead and assumed it was gonna be like the NES Gremlins(TM) game— and it was not, so I’m the fool. I was glad to see a side scroller, and one that is proportionate!
Seriously though the only thing that seemed big were the Gremlins(TM), but Gizmo seems small— although Gizmo is pretty small.. ANYWAYS the stage is big, sprites are a good size, all good all good but let me ask you something— what is this?
Sexy Gremlins(TM) woman? Is she wearing a sports bra? What is going on? Did she give Gizmo a kiss?? Well, moving on to the boss fight..
OH MY GOD THIS GREMLINS(TM) IS THROWING BUNNY POO oh never mind it’s apples.. sorry again. I hate dodging stuff like this because I feel like I react too slow to accomplish it, but I got through it and oh hey punching bonus!
That’s as far as I’ve gotten, I need to buy batteries for my GBC as the cool kids say. I liked what I’ve played so far, it seems like something I could beat in a bus ride… If only I actually bought the gam— wait what, I didn’t say that.
Oh, there’s three more stages.. funk’n tub thumpers this game is tough, but not like TUFF tough just regular ass tough. I may actually have to end it on level 2 because frankly I’m too bad at games! Mainly because being left handed I— Oh, that excuse doesn’t work as well when you’ve only got two buttons. Well, I just suck, better luck next time!
