BIO FORCE APE
I had lots of prototypes and unreleased stuff I wanted to talk about on this site eventually, but before I could get around to any of them, my good buddy Frank Cifaldi discovered the holy mother of them all — Bio Force Ape.
Frank and the Retronauts crew at 1UP played through the game — live and in full — in an episode of Game Night earlier this week, which you can now watch in slightly abridged form:
– Part 1, in which Jeremy Parish wrestles with an ape
– Part 2, featuring the best enemy character in history at 6:40
– Part 3, in which the game takes a sadistic turn
– Part 4, edited to remove ten minutes of monkeys falling off conveyor belts
Frank and company do a good job of explaining the game’s insane history, so I won’t bother prefacing it. Just know that this is something that you need to watch, if you’re at all interested in bizarre unreleased video games, stories of triumph against impossible odds, or mangaroos.
