Super Science Friends: The Video Game is a funny and beautifully animated side scrolling beat ‘em up in which Einstein, Darwin, Marie Curie, Tesla, Sigmund Freud and Taputti take on Hitler’s time travelling army of super villains!
Based on the popular YouTube animated series of the same name, Super Science Friends: The Video Game sees your band of super powered scientists taking on Hitler and his evil henchmen after a time paradox brought him back to life. What follows promises to be 12 levels of old school side scrolling beat ‘em up action that will see Einstein and the other characters he rescues battling lots of familiar faces from the Super Science Friends series.
The current build of Super Science Friends: The Video Game features one level of side scrolling arcade combat and one playable character (Einstein). The combat is pretty basic at the moment, but the quality of the pixel artwork is superb and it’s a very funny game, especially thanks to all the silly enemy animations and the quirky details in the scenery.
The combat could do with being a little more intricate (a few more attacks and a dodge button would be nice), but other than that Super Science Friends: The Video Game is off to a great start. It’s a fun romp that’s packed full of great humor and high quality pixel art animation that makes taking on Hitler’s time travelling forces a joy. A super silly side scrolling scientific smackdown well worth checking out.
