Aero the Acrobat Edition

Cover for SNEScapades podcast episode 83 featuring Aero the Acrobat. Also Cliffhanger and Battletoads & Double Dragon

Okay, Chase and Emmy were a little cranky on this one. But you would be too if you had to play these three games back-to-back. Cliffhanger is a boring game that plays acceptably, until it doesn’t. Battletoads and Double Dragon isn’t fit for either of those franchises (and that’s saying something because we already kinda don’t like Battletoads.) And Aero the Acrobat is kinda like if a DM went through the trouble of crafting a really excellent story, and was then just hell-bent on wiping the party and ending the game early.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors Edition

SNEScapades episode 82 trading-card style art featuring Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Wing Commander: The Secret Missions, and World Heroes

It’s a zombie jamboree! But there’s also mummies, chainsaw maniacs, killer dolls, and more! I guess it’s more like a monster mash. But whatever you want to call it, we’re talking about the Lucasarts classic Zombies Ate My Neighbors. You better believe we’re gonna have to properly rank this one. How high do you think it should go?

We’ve got, not one, but two racing games for you today… kinda. Redline F-1 Racer really isn’t much to write home about, but Rock N’ Roll Racing has become one of our favorite racing games on the system.
