Gatsby For Nintendo, Old Sport!
Hey, did you know that The Great Gatsby comes out on Friday? Have I mentioned that before? Did you know I’m a Gatsby fan? I haven’t talked about that before, have I?
You know I’ll have to review the movie after I watch it (going on Sunday). I might do that next week.
In the meantime, here’s a great way to kill a few hours while you are at work today. Don’t blame me, though.
It’s a 100% fully functional, fully playable online version of The Great Gatsby NES video game from the 1980s.
This is what the internet was made for, my friends.
Gatsby in a video game? Weird. But crazy cool weird. Here’s how it works, according to the Gatsby game website that hosts it.
You’re not in the middle west anymore, son. Welcome to Wild West Egg.
It’s the roaring 20s, and trouble’s in store for Nick Carraway. It’s hard to enjoy a party when you’re being chased by wacky waiters, dizzy drinkers, and crazy dancers! Now you have to find Gatsby, the mysterious man you saw disappear on the hillside…or did he?
Do you have what it takes to fight gangsters and advertisements and hobos? To unravel this American Mystery? Find out in The Great Gatsby.
- High resolution graphics
- 4-Channel sound
- Fully animated story scenes
- Four action packed levels
Only for Nintendo, old sport!
Does the T.J. Eckleburg advertisement actually attack poor Nick? Did you catch that?
This game is basically like Gatsby meets Super Mario Brothers. I never realized Gatsby left so many spare coins floating around in his mansion.
