    hi guys! By the end of the report, I thought like : “This game might be the worst game ever. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde might be more worth playing it”. And then our avgn affirms that it may be half as terrible than Jekyll and Hyde. I plan to download Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but this game, never!

    I know of movie based games, but never one that was released over 50 years after the film was released. Also, I agree how much of a crap load of screw that game is.

    Man, Mike was having a ball as the lion. I also like that parts where James tries as hard as he can not to laugh.

    wow! a crappy movie-to-game translation that’s NOT done by “Let’s Just Not try”, or, as I like to say: “Lethargic Jizz Nuts”

    I even laughed at the intro. The kid that sang: “He’s the angry Atari Sega nerd” mispronounced “Angry,” “Atari,” “Sega,” and “Nerd.” On top of that, the episode itself is hilarious.

    Dud I swear I know the kid at the 0:35-36 second mark.
    His name is like Blake Snow or something.

  • August 27, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    all movie-based games, even now, suck ass

    ive learned to just never even bother with them ever, even if it was a good movie

    The clock part is one of the best AVGN moments EVER.

    I had this game and played a ton as a kid, and it was as awful as you say (if not worse). I don’t think I ever got past the third level, which means I only ever got Dorothy and the Scarecrow. :\ Stupid freaking game.

       @1CLVico I agree. Check that BATMAN episode, where he’s the Joker. MF-Mike is awesome.

    I know that Mike does a lot of acting as other characters that appear in episodes, but I’d say that this is definitely his best.  Nice job, guys!

    The platforming and jump recognition reminds me of the terminator game on nes. There’s no need for jumps to be that precise. Either the sprites should’ve been smaller or the platforms should have been larger. Now I’M getting mad at this game

    In a future episode, you should have a gag where the Nerd looks up at his ceiling and says “That thing’s still up there? Daaaaaamn!”

    This is The First Assembly of The Holy Kirk, and the mission of my new nerdy religion is to seek comfort, wisdom, and maybe something about ourselves and our future by spreading the enlightening words of the 79 stories charting the adventures of the star ship Enterprise. All who wish to join my online discussions say “Live Long And Prosper” as a comment. This may be what Trekkies might need to be complete, and be enlightened on the deeper meanings that each episode contains.

    One of Mike’s best characters! This game looked like it could have been a decent platformer had they worked out some of the complaints you made though.
