The Scott Pilgrim game is a downloadable 8-bit side scrolling beat em up, with bucket fulls of character and several more of good old fashioned fun. It has the delectable option to play with up to four friends co-operatively, however unfortunately, neither Rob, nor Guesty like anyone else enough to consider them friends. So we just played with each other. Ahem. A la the movie, you’ll find the game plentiful in references to arcade, and with any luck this will bring joyous satisfaction to your face. It did to ours. Before we started dying alot anyway. Rocketing through the first few levels we eventually came to be monumentally stuck on the last boss, whom we are yet to defeat, because as we mention seemingly every week, we’re a bit rubbish. Guesty has taken it upon himself to formulate a chart that he thinks accurately* depicts the difficulty wall, sorry, curve in Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.
Like I said, we’re rubbish.
[Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game is out now on XBLA and PSN, and for the record, is a bloody cracking little download well worth the approximate seven quid you’ll be dishing out for it. We encourage everyone who enjoyed the film, or enjoys 8-bit style beat-em-ups to go and LICK IT. Or just buy it, either way]
*Guesty’s idea of accurate violently veers off the mark of the actual definition. Just so you’re aware.
