Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was a game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989. It was developed by Advance Communication Company and published by Toho & Bandai (who also put out the Godzilla toys). It is slow moving side-scroller, with notoriously bad controls and confusing gameplay. During gameplay, you alternate between Hyde or Jekyll where you will either try to avoid taking damage or kill monsters. Dr. Jekyll is supposed to be on his way to a wedding, but on the way he’s getting annoyed by people bothering him on his walk, which causes him to turn into Hyde.
This review of Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest was a video James made right after he got out of college in 2004. It was something to do for fun since James had just competed working on The Jersey Odyssey’s: Legend of the Blue Hole, his senior film. He showed this around to a few friends (including myself) who he thought might enjoy it, and that was that. It was a one shot video never intended to be a series. The first few videos were originally just called „Bad NES games“. Then it was changed to „Angry Nintendo Nerd“ and finally „Angry Video Game Nerd“.
How did Activision screw up so badly with this game? The NES is much more powerful than the Atari 2600, this game should have been a classic, but it’s one of the worst games of the 1980’s.
