Creepy Brawlers




Creepy Brawlers 


One of the things I love about being the editor in chief at Family Friendly Gaming is writing articles about what I want to see, and then seeing it come true. That is one of the coolest things. I wrote about wanting new video games on retro systems. Guess what Creepy Brawlers is? It is a new game on the 8-bit NES. How cool is that? We did an Unboxing of Creepy Brawlers and that can be found here.

The music in Creepy Brawlers is fantastic. I loved listening to this game while boxing. Creepy Brawlers is a Punch Out clone. Which is fine. Creepy Brawlers is actually harder than Punch Out in many ways. Creepy Brawlers also has a bit of a twist to it. What is this twist you may find yourself asking? The fighters in Creepy Brawlers are horror themed characters.

I recommend you take the tutorial in Creepy Brawlers before digging into the four main films. Creepy Brawlers is challenging enough without understanding all of the controls. Once you understand how to play Creepy Brawlers then you can challenge the undead, demonic, and evil boxers. The key to Creepy Brawlers is learning their patterns and tells. Once I learned how to dodge, and counter attack this game was playable.

The 8-bit graphics look decent. I saw glitches in certain screens. I think that was by design though. The clear case, box, and manual prove what I have been saying for years - new games on retro systems is possible. There is no rating for Creepy Brawlers. I would guess between an 'E10+' and a 'T' rating. The occult content is what will bother most families in my opinion.

I hope to see more companies like Mega Cat Studios in the future. There are plenty of ideas that could be implemented on retro machines. If you lose to a boxer in Creepy Brawlers then you will have to fight through all of them in that film again. I wish there was a save/continue in certain spots. I also wish there was a replay button to challenge the boxer you just lost to. Maybe I am asking for too much from an 8-bit video game.

Creepy Brawlers may not be the most family friendly video game on the planet. The horror theme with graves, severed hands and more can definitely bother some people. I find Creepy Brawlers to be a clever idea, like Animal Boxing on the Nintendo DS. The clear cartridge is neat to see the insides. You will not just blow through Creepy Brawlers. So you will get your moneys worth.
