Welcome to Week 2 of the dissection of Konami's two-page verb-heavy ad:
Last week we covered Track 'n Attack
, now we'll move to the next two games and find some verbs that fit:
Top Gun, Castlevania
or, Week 2: Goose vs. Bat?
While PLANES can roll, you can't actually do a barrel roll in this game. Instead I'm "banking" (that's aviator jargon for "turn right").
Ok, you can't loop either, so I just kind of pointed the plane "downwards".
Pew-pew-pew! Wait, why are their engines green?
Yup, "banking" again.
Simon Belmont's magical whip. String beats fire!
Eeew, fishman projectile vomit!
As in, "these Medusa heads make me want to hurl."
Boingy boingy boingy!
Two down, two to go!
Tune in next week for...uh, "Double Sting"? I guess that's better than "Dribbling Stinger"
