Manos: The Videogame of Fate Is Greater Than I Could’ve Possibly Imagined

FreakZone Games is turning the Mystery Science Theater 3000 classic Manos: The Hands of Fate into an iOS game later this week, and to say I’m looking forward to it would be a massive understatement. If the video preview’s still image doesn’t clue you in — in which protagonist/not-especially-bright-family-man Michael fights a giant ostrich monsterManos is a classic 2-D platformer that is also completely insane. I mean, I personally don’t remember a scene in which Michael gets in a biplane to take down other pilots, but I could not be more excited to do so. But the best part? A guest appearance by space helmet-wearing gorilla Ro-Man, the “star” of Robot Monster, another MST3K classic and a personal favorite (it was frequently my handle/icon in the early days of the webbernet). I don’t know if Manos is going to be a collection MST greats, but I will purchase any game that includes both Torgo and Ro-Man. Twice. Or maybe more. Can I just send FreakZone a $20? Infinite thanks to SlyDante for the tip.
