Video Game Adaptations

So… I just discovered there is a video game of ‘Jack Frost’ (It might be refered to as Father Frost on steam). Saw the screenshots and everything. You can play the game based on the movie. It’s a real thing.

And this got my mind wondering. Which of the MST movies could have a video game adaptation (Hey, there used to be a lot of them back in the day)? Some lead themselves to potential games more than others.

‘Robot Monster’? Heck yeah. You have to scrounge for resources and build up your bunker to keep our hairy gorilla diving bell helmet monster out of your hair.

The Magic Sword: It practically begs for one, especially with cool stop motion monsters and a magic sword

Final Justice: Try to bring down a crimelord while evading his gunsels and getting yourself plenty of beer guzzling and burger munching in the process. You won’t have much stamina though, since you are playing Joe Don Baker.
Okay that last one was a bit of a stretch.

What would be your choices for riffed movies that begs to have a video game made of it?

Final Sacrifice! You’re Troy, trying to uncover what happened to Larry Csonka, I mean, your father.

@SquareMaster (who plays many Steam games) says The Ator Saga and Lords of the Deep need to be games, but he’s too busy playing a game to come on here and say it himself.

Monster A-Go-Go: The Game

For the first 147 levels you meander around inside the gamespace, not doing much. You make it to the final boss battle only to find out he does not exist and the game just ends. If you don’t throw your computer/console through the nearest window, you win.

The Brain That Wouldn’t Die. See how many rooms of the house you can stagger through before your life force gives out. If you make it to every room AND the garage, Bill arrives in time to save you. If not, you die and Jan laughs at you.

Isn’t there a Manos game out there in the world somewhere?

Edit: found it https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manos:The_Hands_of_Fate(video_game)

This would probably work best as a hidden object game, as the stories in games of that genre often have occult themes.

It’s the Starfighters Flight Simulator!

Basically, all you do is spend time refueling while listening to the “baaaaaaaaaaa ba ba ba, baaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ba ba ba BAAAA!” theme.

After 800 hours of gameplay, you can unlock the Poopie Suit music.

The Killer Shrews Game. You stand around pressing the “have a drink” button for hours until you do a slow walk under a tub where you can’t get injured. Then the game ends.

Came to mention the Manos game. I’m mildly curious if it’s fun!

The Castle of Fu Manchu Game

It’s a relatively short game, but it seems to go on forever. What is the objective? No one knows. What are the rules? There don’t appear to be any.

How do you win? By not playing.

That would make a good Turn-Based Combat or Survival Horror game. We’ll let the writers at Ubisoft and Capcom duke it out.

Mitchel would be an excellent mission-based, investigation game a la L.A. Noir.

Mom Zero Two could be adapted to a game much like Solar Jetman on the NES. You locate and retrieve salvage or (maybe) treasures to earn money and maintain (but probably not upgrade) your moon ship. Sometimes you have shootouts with other moon men or fistfights, with or without gravity, natch.

Oh, and there’d be a long (long (LONG)) section where you drive a moon buggy over boring terrain with no actual excitement, much like Desert Bus, except with no road, and it’s on the moon.
