Hard to tell from the video whether you play this game or mostly watch it.

My guess would be: mostly watching it. Isn't this the game that was out for the Sega Mega CD ages ago? Back when "movie-games" where all the rage.

Its 70% off which means the game wil cost roughly 3-4 dollars next week I'm guessing but I dont understand the gamplay, do I just swipe left/right hen that green arrow appears by the car HUD, and then watch a cinematic scene (as Gabrien said), or do I actually drive and kill stuff ?

I hope you not right Leegames cause for four dollars I think its pretty awful if thats how the game is - but I haven played it so if anyone has impressions love to hear them

A real shame cos when I first saw the screenshots I thought - they've found a way to render game graphics to look like a crappy 80's cartoon! Which would be the most awesome thing ever!!

You 're right ! I know this game and it's totally the same game as Dragon's lair and another game with a copter can't remember the game !

So it's more a movie than a game and it's totally lack of gameplay.

Wow. It didnt hit you that it might be a joke?

Anyways, if its still not clear, YES, Those impressions are a joke. If they wanted to add shill impressions, they'd have chosen better names. Seriously, DeeCast, ukibear359, Retina69 and itelligent didnt give it away?

As far as the gameplay type is concerned, it can be described as On Rails. They already have another Sega CD game out in the appstore - Cobra Command. Check out the review and forum thread to get a bit more idea on how these games work.

It's a recreation of a cult classic LASERDISC game folks.
Not for everyone but that's the point. Diversity and catering to a wide range of tastes. If it's not for you or you personally don't want to try at any price that's cool, there's plenty of apps out there for everyone

For those that do remember the original fondly or have a love of retro classics, or are intrigued by the art form/history of making games (or have actually played this version), they will probably be able to appreciate it for what it is; a balls out crazy marriage of japanese anime and gaming from an altogether different time that has a special place in history and still has the capacity to delight 30+ years on!
