Mash ’em, smash ’em, bash ’em like it’s 1993!
Back in 1993 making a good game equaled making a game that’s fun to play. With limited power of the contemporary machines, tiny budgets (if any!), and the persistent popularity of what we call “programer art”, most games competed solely on the level of gameplay. It was all about the enjoyment. Titles such as Monster Bash may not look like much today, but they offer an incredible experience of a trip into the pre-3D happy-go-lucky game design. Once you’ll get there, you’ll discover there’s more fun to be had than you could’ve imagined!
In Monster Bash Johnny Dash’s bash ’em smash ’em adventure takes him into the evil Under World of Count Chuck. The story starts when Johnny’s dog Tex is kidnapped by the Count, along with hundreds of other pet dogs and cats. The friendly bed monster under Johnny’s bed tells Johnny where Tex was taken, and how Johnny can use his secret closet passageway to get to the Under World himself. Count Chuck plans to turn all the pets into an army of undead monsters, so Johnny grabs his slingshot and leaps into his closet. The Count will not turn his dog Tex into a monster, not if he can stop him!
