It’s become a rite of passage for any movie that ends up beloved (or hated) by the internet to get the 8-Bit Cinema treatment. And if there’s one movie that’s worthy of this video game adaptation, it’s Mad Max: Fury Road.
Talk about a movie that was made for the side-scrolling arcade game style. This Mad Max Fury Road 8-bit creation from Cinefix is one of their best creations, if only because it includes the button-smashing directions needed for certain parts of the game. It also brings the best vehicles from the movie into the simple video game world. Watch!
Here’s Mad Max Fury Road 8-Bit Cinema from CineFix:
Technically this is more like 16-Bit Cinema, but that doesn’t make it any less fun. There are nice touches in the “gameplay” for how to snipe the Bullet Farmer in the middle of the near-dark in the desert, and also how to control a bunch of the War Boys. But I will say, the mistreatment of the glorious character that is the Coma-Doof Warrior is a bit unsettling. Just one quick hit and he’s gone? That just doesn’t seem right. He has a flaming guitar, for Valhalla’s sake.
Anyway, if you’re anxious for some Mad Max gaming, there is an official next-generation video game adaptation of the film franchise. However, I’ve heard it’s rather repetitive and gets a bit boring after awhile, without making as good a use of the Mad Max universe as it could have.
But I suppose the only way to find out is to head to your local video rental shop and rent the game for yourself. Or if that’s not a possibility anymore due to the cruel side effects of advancing technology, just sign up for something like GameFly or whatever the kids are using nowadays for their video game shenanigans. Now excuse me while I go play Sonic & Knuckles.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
