[Tuesday] SMAGGS #3: Aero The Acrobat

[This is the third post of a mini-six part series I wrote last week for everybody so you would have some fresh stuff about Grandma while we are out camping in the woods getting lost in the cold and resorting to cannibalism for sustenance. We'll be back August 20th when we blog live back in Cleveland once again. Enjoy!]

Part 3
Aero The Acrobat

Shit, I get the first one and the second one confused. I believe she played this one on the trusty old SNES. Grandma was sort of funny playing this classic 2D sidescroller because the music was so goddamn funny. I remember her rocking her feet back and forth happily to the tune of some weird circus music for awhile, but then she would bellow out screams of nastiness when the little bat couldn't quite get shot out of the cannon in the right direction:

"No! No NO NOO!!!!! SHIT!!! ...........Alright, can he MAKE it this time..........GO GO GO GO GO GO GO SHIT!!!!!!!"

It was very much like drunkenly watching Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas with the ghost of Hunter S. Thompson sitting next to you saying "You know, it wasn't really like that. The car was yellow. This movie was a pack of fucking lies, man." It goes from being really happy and upbeat to completely and utterly frustrating. She still loved that little bat, though.

It's hard to remember this game with the static of the circus level in Sonic The Hedgehog (2, I think) running around in your head. Come to think of it how many circus levels ARE there in games? It's like the last cliche. You have to have a water level; you have to have a "woodsy" level; and maybe circuses have powerful lobbyists in the game industry. Who knows?


[Another exciting installment coming tomorrow!]

    best side scrolling platformer not mario - 7up Cool Spot..

    I had them both for the Snes and my Genesis, they were slightly different but still the most fun, and most frusterating platformers EVER

    only because getting 100% of all of the goddamned tabs was nearly impossible to do for every level..
