    Old school madness!

    Time for some old school shit!This time im reviewing Friday The 13th on the NES. 
    The game begins with a start screen you press start,then you start the game and then the first thing you do is choose a camp counselor.Yeah,thats right you dont play as jason it sucks ass. Anyway,when you start the game the graphics are blury as most of the old games.The main idea is to collect lighters and then go into cabins to light up chimneys.The easiest enemy in the game is zombies.The first weapon of the game is the rock.You cannot throw straight,just up,then it goes down,that kinda sucks.Then after a while you get the knife.So look for the lighters and go light up chimneys.Another thing that sucks,is when you go left you go right,and when you go right you go left!THATS BULLSHIT!And when you collected a few lighters and lighted up some chimneys you hear a big PIP,PIP!Thats the jason alarm,it means you must get to the right cabin in time before he kills one of the campers.So you go to the cabin,and the first thing you see is a girl saying thank you!when i haven't even killed jason.And the cabin is the WORST.You just go through doors go through windows and then finally in the cabin jason pops up to scare the hell outta ya.Then you fight him.After the fight you collect lighters go to a cabin and light up chimneys.And you also fight Jasons mom,the headless bitch.And the last thing,when you go into a cabin you cant go out,you just have to go through the whole cabin for 5 minutes to get out!And the soundtrack doesn't even have the Friday the 13th theme.The killing zombie part is fun,and the jason fight is pretty well done,but all the other shit no!

      Developed by Atlus and published by LJN for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989, Friday the 13th is based on the iconic 1980-1993 horror film franchise of the same name. This game is considered by many to be one of the worst games of all time. Interestingly, this game was also actually quite revolutionary, as it was one of the first horror games. This game was released ten months before Sweet Home was released in December of the same year, 1989, and definitely the first one that has you ke...

      Imagine a wooden barrel full of juggling balls, each one of those balls representing a movie or IP license. To sum up LJN's business plan during the late 80s and early 90s, they pretty much picked up every one of those balls at once, attempted to juggle them, and dropped them all on the first try.This game's not HORRIBLE, but it's not playable enough to be considered 'good', at least not by my weird and unpleasant standards. The 2-and-a-half stars I gave it are for nostalgia alone. Also, I don't...
