Quick Look: Johnny Megatone is an entertaining video game where you are on a mission to infiltrate and disrupt the plans of Mr. Z. The game movement is very deliberate and rather slow, making it feel more like an old video game from the 80s. The game is, in fact, a classic 2D platformer (aka jump-n-run) from the early 2000s.
You start out the game with a handful of bullets and bombs that you will use to eliminate your enemies and clear the way as you progress through a maze of city streets and underground tunnels. The game directs you which way to go for the most part, but there are hidden passages along the way that should be explored to uncover extra supplies and bonus points. There are 3 "chapters" or stages to the game, each offering a different backdrop and new enemies and challenges to conquer along the way.
The controls are very simple: The directional arrows on your remote guide your character, up arrows allow you to jump up, the down arrow is for crouching, the down arrow/OK button is used to set bombs and the OK button is for firing your gun.
