Postcard Review: Arcade Pilgrimage

(Editor’s note: In Postcard Review, members of the Pixelitis staff write small, easily digestible reviews big enough to ‘fit on a postcard’ – hence the title. It can be about the whole experience or just a small piece of the pie. No scores needed.)

"I spent many happy days in Nathan’s Arcades both bullying terrorists in Time Crisis and trying to get the high score in Galaga. After the simple wonder of arcade games started to slip my mind in my early twenties, I was reintroduced to their charming nature in the form of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game.

A deceptively charming and endearing side-scrolling arcade beat-em-up, it manages to create a simple plot, fortify it with solid gameplay mechanics, sweeten it up with stylized visuals and top it off with a garnish of nostalgic homages.

What I have just described is a cake. A cake made of warp pipes and Anamanaguchi." - Tom Farndon (PS3, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Xbox 360)
