Never played this game, but I'm sure it's awesome. There's Moustache Man fighting Ghost Spookeroo on the cartridge, it that doesn't quality I don't know what does.

 

Can I suggest posting a picture of your local cemetery for bonus points? It would fit with the entombed theme and some of us need excuses to go outside, it's always tempting spend all week inside playing awesome retrogames.

PS, I'd take pic/video of said zombie, keeping a safe distance, figuring it was some kind of stunt. Then I'd go home. ( cemetary pic coming soon)



Off topic story: Back in the late nineties, I participated in a performance art thing, approximately twenty people dressed up like zombies, drove to downtown Chicago, and shambled around the business district for thirty minutes while the businesspeople were out eating lunch. We were mostly ignored. Fun times...

I dont plan on playing the game,

Too scared of Spookaroo? Moustache man wouldn't approve, he wouldn't approve at all. We all understand the fear brought by Spookaroo but it's facing that fear that makes us brave.
