Do you know how many cave man platformers there are for the SNES? Oddly, it’s a lot. Do you remember Joe & Mac being one of the best, but is it? We continue our wonderful streak of having on Wizened Sage Ian to delve into this childhood favorite. The sequel was covered MANY years ago but how does the original compare?
Wizened Sage Ian returns to the podcast to guest host much like Master Higgins returns to Super Adventure Island II! Things are a little different in the second Adventure Island on the SNES, which is appropriately named Super Adventure Island II. This game is a little bit of a departure from the series (we’ll get into that in this episode), and it’s very similar to another classic retro game (we’ll get into that too). Come dock your raft for a little bit and listen.
Super Adventure Island. It’s like Adventure Island but super. No, really. Normally we do games from the Randomzier but by means of Epic Artisanal Podcast Magic to temporarily seal away it away so we could do some games we want to try out. So come listen to us talk about Super Adventure Island, Adventure Island, some of versions of Adventure Island, why is Master Higgins called Master Higgins, what happened to that bee, some quality anime, a little Hades chat, and plenty more! Come sit awhile and listen!
Little Nicky for the Game Boy Color! You know that’s freakin sweet. Or not. Maybe it is? Come listen and find out. I’m sure everyone has seen this 21 year old movie so this will be a very listened to episode. We had to bring on our foremost Adam Sandlerologists in TADPOG I.T., Ian and Jon! All of us talk intro stories, circuses, taking acid, talk about Adam Sandler’s ENTIRE FILMOGRAPHY, NOT JUST LITTLE NICKY. We talk about this game, the movie, all the movies and all the things. This one is a long boi that we suffered in the heat to bring to you, enjoy!
Super Turrican! Only 609 episodes after we did Super Turrican 2 as the 91st game on IGN’s Top 100 SNES games. Long time listeners will recall the pure vitriol that Dave felt for Super Turrican 2. So how does he feel about this one? How does Tyler feel about the size of the sprites in this game?
Courtesy of the Randomizer and an independent wrestler who requested we do this episode back in 2014, we bring you Phantom 2040! This game has some long reaching and interesting lore but in true TADPOG fashion we get to that about 40 minutes into show. We talk about the return of pizza mascots, the kinks of Archie characters, a little anime, a little fantasy fiction, and how Tyler thought he was going to a live recording of Saturday Night Live. So come hear us chat, take a quiz, and talk a little about Phantom 2040.
DUCK DODGERS! No, wait, that’s not the title. It totally should be the title but instead it is called Daffy Duck: The Marvin Missions. Missed opportunity. Well, the Randomizer threw this one at us and it was one of the more polarized opinions between Tyler and Dave in quite some time. Dave had a very busy week so we delve into talk on an INCREDIBLE GIFT he received, Ninja Turtles Rescuepalooza, Pac Man 99, Whisker Squad, Hades, and so many other things. We promise we do eventually get to Duck Dodgers. Blarg, Daffy Duck: The Marvin Missions. Come give us a listen!
Dave sings hymns to The Randomzier this week as it gave him one of his favorite childhood games, Jurassic Park 2: The Chaos Continues. How thick are his nostalgia glasses? What will Tyler think of this game having never heard of it? I’m sure you know. Come on over, there is a southern dramatic reading and a quiz!
