Welcome to a sister article to In The Games Corner that is about computer games but with a different spin. I have been playing computer games from a very young age and I find that some games when I think of them are attached to very strong memories. So, I thought it would be fun to share memories that I have attached to some of these games as there are a few. I wanted to call this feature Memory Card because a lot of my memories that i have strongly are around the Playstation 1 and there will be a few around that particular card. This month we are going to take a bit of a festive twist on the article and look at Christmas themed games. Today we take a look at The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogies Revenge
I love The Nightmare Before Christmas, well. I can live without the film but I love the actual characters, the cult of the music and everything around it apart from the actual film. I know weird. When I heard that they were releasing a Playstation 2 game based on the characters I was very excited.
It was a game that welcomed you to the world of Jack Skellington and the gang and follows a very similar story to the film. It is a platform game with a very gothic colour and theme that really creates this immense feeling and brings the game to life. The game consisted of 24 separate chapters, when you complete certain challenges you get a logo to one of the different holiday worlds. You also get graded between the letters A through to D as to how well you do on that level.
The thing that I really like about this game was the graphics they were gothic yet also in a style of a cartoon. It was an interesting game to play with a unique tool to hit the enemies with called a pull rubber. It was a really fun way to explore Halloween Town and get to know all about the neighbourhood.
There were parts of the game that were frustrating as some levels can be really difficult. I think though that as a game it was quite underrated.
