    Hey James, I was watching this AVGN again and noticed something. When you say the only way around the panda is to get hit first, did you try the invincibility potion? Or did the panda pwn you even with the potion on lol.

    @ shipman96 Try going here: http://www.amazon.com/Game-Genie-Original-NES-Nintendo/dp/B000FUIS40/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1276708096&sr=8-1 you may have to but another game genie with it, but who cares?

  • Gunderman

    June 16, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    Maybe HES Interactive &/or Thin Chen Enterprise had thought that Little Red Riding Hood was copyright infringement, so they named it “Little Red Hood”. If I were HES Interactive &/or Thin Chen Enterprise, I’ve would have named the game “Red Riding Hood”.

    LOl I love the movie references you sneek in. It makes us feel smart when we get them

  • hippydudelad

    July 31, 2010 at 8:35 am

    xD I don’t know if anybody else noticed it but this game has the “Made in Australia” logo on it.

  • August 7, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    The title screen clearly shows “JV” in a circle. Thats the logo of Joy Van.
    Remember Joy Van? They co-produced many(or at least some) of the Colour Dreams/Wisdom Tree games – they also have that Joy Van logo.

    the thing is about the title is, in dutch Little Red Ridding Hood is Roodkapje translated that is Redhood. Just throwing that out there.

    AVGN is awesome and funny as HECK!

  • SpeedyEric

    October 28, 2010 at 12:27 am

    I’ve wondered if you were gonna review this game since I first was your NES collection video over a month before this episode was released

    I think I know why the name of this game is Little Red Hood. The game designers (whoever the hell they are) were gonna name it Little Red Random Hood because of all the randomness. But they knew that people buying this game will catch on to the gimic. So, they took the word “Random” out, and leave it as Little Red Hood for $h!ts and giggles.

    The main enemies look like Frankenstein monsters.

    I love that Ghostbusters refference. James, you are the King of refferencing films.

    13:33- I love your reaction here. LOL funny.

    “Thank you for your…” WHAT!?

  • October 30, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    LOVE I’ll tell you the effect! It’s pissing me off, nice shout out to the Ghost Busters.

    ——————————————————————————————————James, great episode but YOU HAVE A BIG MISTAKE in this…
    Our lady doesn’t have a sling (catapult) – this is kind of BUMERANG she is throwing.


  • coolKevinator

    December 1, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Woops. James I think those were arrows not slingshots. But that was good and funny review nonetheless.

  • Jenslyn87

    January 13, 2011 at 1:17 am

    This is one of my all time favorite AVGN’s, and I’ve watched all several times. It has all my favorite elements of the series

    – James’ rage episodes with funny outbursts

    – His facial reactions to stuff that happens in-game (always awesome because he’s very expressive)

    – A truly horrible game with truly horrible design decisions. Like you can really feel he means what he says

    Such a great episode, James 😀

    Sonic and Knuckles for Sega Genesis had the same style of cartridge. Only reason it had that type of cartridge was because it could be used as an expansion for Sonic 3. It would then be called: “Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles:.

    trees with squares of missing leaves like in 10:18 or 10:32 … cut down like 12:22… wtf is wrong with this game, game designers in those time were so lazy they make CoD’s latest crooks look like good work

    • TehKnight

      February 28, 2012 at 6:03 pm

       @OlDirtyVinceDm After a quick search on the net, I found out more info about this game. It was made by a Taiwanese game company that released this game way before it was done to recover themselves from financial troubles. Sure does explain why there’s so many issues with this game like graphical glitches, random shit and not being able to attack enemies with the kick

    I think it’s called little red hood instead of little red riding hood because if you tranlate in from French, which is “petit chaperon rouge”, it means little red hood. No riding!

    This game was released unfinished by the illegitimate Australian game developer “Home Entertainment Systems” or “H.E.S”. They liquidated their inventory and pushed out all if their game currently in development (Regardless of completeness) attempting to pay off a lawsuit or something. That is why the game is so random, it was never finished so random code fragments randomly connect and make random things happen.

  • likalaruku

    September 21, 2012 at 6:26 am

    This Taiwanese game might be based on a Cantonese anime series called Simsala Grimm: Little Red Riding Hood. That’s the only sense I can make of the senselessness.

    What I want to know is why the enemies are wearing blue Starfleet uniforms.

  • likalaruku

    September 21, 2012 at 6:29 am

    No vvvxs.t.a.rwolf, the game is by Sachen aka Thin Chen. HES Interactive was just the publisher. It was unfinished before they got it.
