Target: Terror screens

Target: Terror screens

If the terrorist definition could be applied to a videogames developer, Leviathan Games would wear it immediately. Its product, no, its abomination that is the port Target: Terror (originally in arcades) for the Nintendo Wii is almost making my eyes bleed. Sensible hearts, don't watch this.

Nintendo has to prevent this game from coming out. Seriously. Revoke their licence for making Nintendo games. Rip it away and burn the gold master of this game.

Not every game need take itself seriously. If this really is a serious attempt at an action game, then yes, I share the sentiment. However given the title, given the screens and... well.. given the fact it's being made *at all* would lead me to *hope* that is not the case.

If done right a light hearted bit of nostalgia isn't a bad thing.

Yeah, this game has to be aware of how corny it is and how shitty it looks. There's just no way that this game takes itself seriously, i can't believe that.

I never could deal with the filmed lightgun shooters back in the day. This is obviously either an homage or deliberate pastiche of those games, and it's... hardly making a better impression on me now than Mad Dog McCree did back then. At least I think that's what it was called. :O

...wow.

Devs are lazy when it comes to the Wii (visually), but this is just taking it a bit to far.

Actually I'm going out on a limb to say that.. this is prolly more work than just chucking polygon models in there. :)

No i don't think so. Modeling, texturing, rigging and animation for one model would probably take way longer than just dressing up and shooting some video.

O M G !

no.

i hope they made this as an in-house joke for the developers. I will buy it if its $10 or less retail, kinda reminds me of the ol' area 51 game.

What. The. Hell? Think the only possible sane explanation for this pile of hilarity is a sickday for QC at Nintendo.
Commented on 2008-03-12 00:10:00
lol... I hope this is for real, maybe people will finally see how much the Wii pretty much is pathetic...

Even the party games are better then this crap... Iron Chef? That I would play if I had to to save my life... This? Nuh uh...

This game was made by eugene jarvis (honetsly)

This looks like a great game to rent with some mates.

Seriously, infinite laughs and the gameplay is probably equally bad!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This VR rhythm game looks pretty fun: [url] (5 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (8 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (8 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (8 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (8 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (11 Hours ago)
