This game is actually pretty fun. I sure as hell wouldn't pay $15 for it though.

The game looks fine, but, fuck, that stupid gem sound. It sounds like the windows error sound wtf is up with that?

When I think of evil pigs I always think of Tomba! first.

Yes, two awesome XBLA Quick Looks in two days, this and Things on Wheels. The communist parallels talk and "seawalk all over your ass" destroyed me.

Also, this game looks kinda cute. Seems fun, though 15 bones seem a bit too much.

Posted by SomethingClever

For 10 bones this seems like it could be a fun little something to play when taking a break from other titles.

The evil red possum looks strangely like Mickey Mouse.

Looks like it could be fun.

Steam has a demo btw in case you want to try it out.  Cause demos = sales.

Every XBLA game comes with a trial. So anyone could play that too.

I have been wanting another solid good platform for xbl since Splosion Man. I think this should fill the void just fine.

The Konami pause sound is worth it alone.

And that should be done on every platform in the perfect world, sigh. Steam demo on launch does not happen often enough.

there IS a psn version Ryan, I have the trial :P

Posted by Sanious

This looks pretty tight, might grab it.

Posted by Abomstar

Sparkster! Loved that game growing up, definite purchase on nostalgia alone.

What is the meaning behind that "Always Be ______" phrase that they've been throwing out lately?

Posted by heatDrive88

I downloaded and played the trial of this yesterday. It's surprisingly fun, I do remember Sparkster for Genesis, but I never played it previously. It's a great throwback with updated graphics to that generation of 2D platformers.

Looks pretty fun, been a while since some goodness hit XBLA for me.

Posted by artofwar420

I kinda want this.

Posted by JJOR64

Seems like a fun throw back to 16bit platformers.  I might have to get this.   :)

Posted by IchiroYagiza

Ah...the memories of playing the original one...good times. XD

"Always be closing" is the epigraph of the play Glengarry Glen Ross. I guess DRAM 120 wasn't a wasted experience after all.
Here's the movie version, where they actually have a character (who wasn't in the play) say the words at around 3:20.

To bad I think it is $15

The enemy possum made a smoke Jesus fish, clearly more political commentary.

Posted by Olivaw

I had Rocket Knight for the Genesis. It was a good game, but difficult.
I never expected to see a resurgence of that franchise, let me tell you.

Posted by Ariketh

I used to love this game.

Posted by Crushed

Libertarians are possums, lol.

Posted by Rabid619

The original was one of my favorite games when I was a kid, I actually still play it once in a while. I almost bought this but I heard it lasts only about 2 hours and costs $15... yeah. A sale couldn't happen soon enough.

Posted by ultimathule

Rocket Knight Adventures was one of my favourite games for the Mega Drive.
To bad the Steam release is US only, what's up with that?

Posted by agc8602

Isn't this actually the fourth Rocket Knight game? 
Rocket Knight Adventures (GENESIS)
Rocket Knight Adventures 2: Sparkster (GENESIS) 
Sparkster (SNES)
Rocket Knight (XBLA, PC, PSN)

Posted by TimFReilly

$15 definitely isn't the right price for this game.  Other companies need to learn from Capcom's aggressive and smart pricing.

Posted by FiestaUnicorn

This looks a lot better than I thought it would. But I'm not sure it's worth $15.
Posted by theberserker

looks good, nice fluid animation

Posted by NathHaw

I'm surprised that Ryan and Brad are unfamiliar with Rocket Knight Adventures.
