What a blast from the past! Fans of side-scrolling action-adventure games are truly in for a treat as a trio of sidescrolling titles land on the Nintendo eShop and DSi Shop including a major classic -- I am talking about the Game Boy version of the NES classic Bionic Commando of course -- an action-packed romp through a bygone era that, if you are a younger gamer and having your first experience with it, is sure to make you a fan of platform gaming!
The Bionic Commando Woot!
The world -- as it appears to Rad Spencer -- is a dangerous place filled with deception, treachery, and good men who were betrayed and must be rescued!
As the protagonist of the story and a daring and brave half-man half-machine operative, Spencer must use his high-tech grapple hook and low-tech assault rifle to infiltrate the enemy's stronghold in order to rescue Super Joe and save the day -- wow, I am getting all tingly just thinking about it!
Are you ready for the challenge?
Are you ready to save the day?
Are you ready to be the difference between war and peace?
Damn skippy you are!
Antipole -- It's the Stuff!
Flip the world around you with Antipole. In this game you have the ability to manipulate the force of gravity allowing you to defy science by running on ceilings and jumping over incredible distances. You can even test yourself at different difficulty levels and challenges. The game also features a special bonus mode for owners of Cosmos X2.
Flipper 2 Arrives -- No Not the Bloody Dolphin!
This weeks final side scrolling installment is Flipper 2 -- Flush the Goldfish, where you are tasked with saving Flush's best friend who has been kidnapped by an evil monster. You will need to act quickly in order to save Flush's best friend and with a little help from his super secret robot suit to give yourself the best possible chance to be the hero.
