This is one of my favorite all time movies, and Roddy was an icon figure to any boy who grew up in the 80's

I don't know if i would consider this a "game", more of some kind of complex fan art/ tribute art. ENJOY :)

Pro-tips: #.1 Your multiplier is determined by the # of aliens you see killed with the glasses on (W). #2. Your final score (equivalent to the cash you'll get for the whole run) is multiplied by your HIGHEST multiplier (e.g. 5k w/a 5x multiplier is 25k total). #3. Leaving from the entrance ends the round. #4. Diving out the door (D) is the best way to end the run, as they can still shoot you from behind during the fade-out. #5. Dying takes more than half your money away.

This game is honestly not that hard, it just takes some learning to get all medals.

Strat: Camp in the top-right corner (beside the teller), you'll be safe here, and wait for the six cops to group up on the other side of the desk. Throw on the glasses (W), move down a tad, blast 'em (S), run back up, don't forget to reload (A!), repeat. The grind to 100k (THE GOLDEN RULE), this way, only takes about 16,666 (i.e. 100k/6), that is, if you're just getting the 6x combo. However, after a point the cops will simply spawn and rush to bunch up in that corner, so getting the x13 combo (KICKING ASS!) is just as simple. Keep the glasses on for two bunch-ups and use your special; you'll get the whole OBEY medal sheet easy as f**k.

Awesome game based on one of my favorite movies of all time. The game is tough at first but not too hard once you figure out the tricks.
1 put on the glasses to combo.
2 shoot the sign to get a big combo.
3 hide in teh safe spots basically the top of the bank.
4 use special and rack up the points for the upgrades.


Nice idea but the shooting is very buggy

Awful design. If you want to make a tribute to something, maybe don't play an incredibly annoying loop every single time you die every ten seconds? Don't feel very inclined to grind for any upgrades.
