Pac-Attack Edition

Cover for SNEScapades podcast episode 85 featuring Pac-Attack, Last Action Hero, and Lock On

Today we’ve got three games that are fine. These are fine. They’re fine. Well, two of them are fine. Well, Emmy thinks two of them are fine. Chase thought one of these games wasn’t worth his time. But they both agree on one thing: one of these games is very bad. The others… they’re fine.

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

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.

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?
