Default MANOS: The Hands of Fate - NES Platformer (iCade?)


Youtube link | Pop Up


Introducing MANOS: The Hands of Fate for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, due out July 26th 2012!



MANOS is an homage to all of the cheesy games you remember from your childhood! Remember how every film and cartoon had it's own platform game adaptation? How concepts in the film were made completely nonsensical for the case of gameplay? When every man, woman, child, animal and inanimate object were out to kill Marty McFly, Freddie Krueger filled the streets with bats, ghosts and frankenstein monsters and Darth Vader would casually transform into a scorpion? MANOS will take you back to the fantastically absurd movie adaptations of the past!


^ Torgo takes care of the place while The Master is away.

The story: Lost on their vacation, Mike and his family have wandered the desert trying to find a place to stay, only to wind up in a strange haunted hotel. Maintained by Torgo, an unusual man/satyr who "takes care of the place while The Master is away", the hotel is swimming with paranormal activity which Mike has to brave through to find his now missing family. Who is The Master, and what does he want with Mike's family? Mike, armed with his trusty revolver, will have to wander the haunted halls, venture out into the desert, uncover a dark temple and battle MANOS, the great god of hands, to find out!


^ Mike can defend himself with his trusty revolver.

MANOS takes influence from, and pays homage to, video games and pop culture including: CastleVania, Zelda II, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Angry Video Game Nerd, Mystery Science Theater 3000 and many more!


^ Even to the bosses are authentically retro.

The game's graphics are all drawn using only the colours and sounds of the NES console, and we have (mostly) stuck within that console's limits for an authentic retro feel.

MANOS is built on a modified AWESOME Land engine, so expect super-solid controls and authentic retro gameplay!

8-bit! Sweet. I'm a fan (obviously). I think the nes might've been the only console that could pull of a neon pink sky and not have anyone question it.

As usual, you own me. Please, please fill this with loads of lovely levels and let me buy it as soon as possible. This looks even more awesome than.. well, Awesome Land, which is pretty awesome. Naming it after one of the worst films ever made? You guessed it: awesome. I will very impatiently await this.

Awesome Land was great and I'm sure I will love this but what happend to your other game that you were developing. I believe the main character was a little green creature who used his tongue (not sure if it was as a weapon or just to grab and stick to certain objects). Did it get cancelled?

Thanks for your interest! No, both have been in development for a while, nothing is cancelled! Both are to be released soon!

Wow!

Talk about a movie that has been ACHING for a game adaptation!

This was always one of my favorite MST3K covered movies.
