Webgame Wednesday: Gotham Streets

'Member Spy Hunter? Gotham Streets takes the same basic drive-and-shoot mechanics from that old arcade classic and dresses them up, sueprhero-style. It's an adaptation of Cartoon Network's new series "Beware the Batman," which revives the Dark Knight in a retro, gangster setting. Who doesn't want to drive the Batmobile?

Stranger Factory will be there handing out door prizes. Get on over there and get your tickets, vampire lovers!

      Webgame Wednesday: Soundodger

      In Soundodger, you must, well, dodge sounds. This innovative mix of Dance Dance Revolution and Asteroids uses songs to create waves of needle-like enemies. Move your mouse around these patterned barrages to avoid getting poked. Tense and soothing at the same time, this games plays as good as it sounds.

        Webgame Wednesday: Candy Box

        Candy Box is causing an interweb stir for its old (old) school look and unusual game play. Surf on over to the game's homepage and you'll be greeted with information on your mounting candy supply. You can click a button to eat all the candies if you want, but that appears to be your only method of interaction with the game. What gives? Have a little patience, my friend. Leave your browser open, let those candies accumulate, and the game's possibilities will open up for you. Soon you'll be harvesting lollipops, buying weapons and fighting monsters. This oddball, text-only (with occasional ASCII art) adventure/resource management game grows bigger and bigger the longer you play. Plus it really makes you want some candy.

              Do you love hot ham water and cornballs? If so, then you know Netflix finally lets loose the new season of “Arrested Developmet” today. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Albuquerque’s Tannex (1417 Fourth Street SW) will host the “100% Good Time Family Viewing Solution or Family Love Michael” event.

                The recent remake of Evil Dead was gory as hell, but largely pointless. After all, filmmaker Sam Raimi already remade Evil Dead. It was called Evil Dead II, and it was awesome. Join Alibi at Guild Cinema this Friday and Saturday night at 10:15 and midnight for a 35mm screening of the one, the only, the original Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn. Tickets are $6 students and $8 general. There will be doorprizes from Stranger Factory and a special, limited-edition poster release courtesy of local artists Soto and Jon Sanchez. Posters will be for sale in the theater lobby, and we’ll be giving one away each screening. Be there or be dead.

                  Webgame Wednesday:The Great Gatsby

                  This has been around for a while, but with Baz Luhrmann's 3D version of The Great Gatsby doing gangbusters at the box office, it seems like a fine time to revisit the (faux) NES version of The Great Gatsby. This straight-faced, side-scrolling brawler take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's seminal Jazz Age novel is fun, fitting and proof positive that Luhrmann isn't the only guy around screwing with the classics.
