Side Scrolling Games Are Making a Come Back and Scott Pilgrim is Leading the Way

Monday, June 14, 2010

Like every other comic book turned live action movie, Scott Pilgrim is about to get his very own video game. This 8-bit style side scrolling game reminds me so much of the old Double Dragon game I used to play way wwaaaaayyyy back on Nintendo's Family Computer but with a little twist here and there and a couple of mini games incorporated into the gameplay. I think I see a couple of rock band like mechanics in the mix and a lot of punching, kicking and bashing. Although I don't read Scott Pilgrim (don't kill me), I am planning to watch the movie and most likely play this game because it looks a hell of a lot of fun. Check out the video trailer when you read more.
