UGLY AMERICANS: APOCALYPSEGEDDON
With no foreknowledge as to what the fuck Ugly Americans was,
a quick look had us deciding it revolved around some sort of
government department staffed by a cop, a devil woman, a wizard and
just a regular guy... with a sad koalabloke looking on.
Upon doing some research, we learned that Ugly Americans
revolves around some sort of government department staffed by a cop,
a devil woman, a wizard and just a regular guy... with a sad
koalabloke looking on.
It’s based upon an adult-skewed Comedy Central animated series
that’s somehow ducked our cartoony-centric peepers – until now. The
humour’s certainly not for children, which is ironic as they’re the
ones that’d lap up the wilfully puerile nature of it all, and have
it permeating throughout playgrounds quicker than nits. Mind you,
with the state of many parents nowadays, they probably buy the
nippers the DVDs before getting back to tongue-pashing their Vicodin.
Visually akin to an episode of the TV show, game-wise we’re talking
a kinda cross between Double Dragon and Robotron – the
side scrolling killingness of the former meeting the relentless
twin-stick shootiness of the latter.
Whilst you can brave it alone, you’ll die lots – it’s frustration on
an icy pole stick. Get four players assailing the cavalcade of
freaky (local or online) though and you’ll be closer to
cruisetational, primal nirvana, going the smackdown on all manner of
weird shit like manbirds, demon punks, zombies (yawn) and big-boned
Weapons are many, and subject to RPG-like power-upping so as to give
them more grip. Your initial advantage depends upon which character
you choose – all of which are voiced by the original actors, which
is kinda neat-o and stuff.
this is fan service
Jebus, we just read the koalabloke’s history. That’s some seriously
