"All in all, Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures is a fun throwback to the NES days, but with more violence and toilet humor. Fans of the Nerd will lap it up, and its intense level...

"This retro platformer is as short as it ridiculously difficult, as cool as it is wacky. Nice!"

Destructoid

"As a pseudo NES-era throwback, it nails the careful balance between cruel and inviting. As a tribute to the Nerd, it does a decent job covering his entire career, although...

Maybe worth buying if you're an AVGN fan, but not much fun for anyone else.

The graphics are really heavy on the eyes at some point, the game is really hard, frustrating and just makes you angry. Even the humor cannot salve it. If you are into games that make you anry, go for it but it was not for me.

Frustrating as the old nes games

Fanatical User

It is like a classic nes game with better graphics. There are the irritating enemies, the stupid deaths, etc. The game plays good on Linux. I like that you can select what stage to play, and it has even easy mode with infinite lives. But it is a frustrating game. I gave up half way.

He is gonna take you back to the past ♪♫

A game reminiscent of classic platformer games where you easily die, platforming gets harder and harder, but the nerd controls very well. Requires a good amount of skill to beat, expect to die a lot. 9/10 A must play if you like platformers
