Tetris movie and Curse of the sea rats Review
This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, Cameron Daxon and Mark Kaliroff are back to talk about everything but triple play while Campbell Gill takes a day to rest. As with the last episode, the crew may be one man down, but Cameron and Mark still have plenty to discuss as they explore an exciting period of the 80s and less desirable pirate fiction.
First, Cameron and Mark have quite a bit to say about an indie game they played last week. Curse of the sea rats, a multiplayer Metroidvania with beautiful art and dodgy controls, is unfortunately cursed with more than one major problem. However, as with most Metroidvanias, the two still have some positive things to say about Petoons Studios’ newest expedition.
To wrap things up, Mark is ready to talk about the blockbuster Tetris fans have been waiting for. According to Mark, the new Apple TV movie based on the game’s publishing history is one of the best movies of the year so far and a fantastic biography summarizing Hank Rogers’ journey to secure the rights to the Russian puzzle game from Nintendo. While the movie could use some exaggerated dramatic changes from the real story (trust us, the car chase is actually really good and adds to the weight of the story), Tetris Captures an unbelievable story as it entertains viewers with a realistic and shocking spy thriller.
