I loved Scott Pilgrim when it came out, and when I was told it was a comic, I went and devoured those. Great stuff.
Well, they finally made the game, that was about a movie, that was kinda about (heavily influenced by) games. So meta...
It's some pretty good nostalgia comfort gaming. The right amount of pixels to button smashing.
I picked it up on Stadia and on Switch.
Here's me playing it on Stadia for a bit
You can see it has that 3D side scroller feel, very much like River City Ransom, or Double Dragon; both great games.
Here's a little gameplay of me on my son's Switch:
Sorry for the little 'askew viewing', I don't know how to really get a good recording of that (I don't have a PC to set up for a capture card).
And I mention that it's very reminiscent of River City Ransom which takes the side scrolling fighter and adds a little of an RPG element. Getting XP to level up and new moves, getting money to buy power ups, etc...
Which it took me a bit to recognize that that second map area I visited, you can actually GO IN the stores so that you can purchase.
So much fun.
Check it out, in Canada, it's $20 on either platform; and I imagine the same on others as well.
