It’s been awhile since I posted one of these ….. here’s the description where I found this charming game ….
“It’s the classic trick to avoid English homework: Don’t read the book, just play the video game. Wait, what? That’s right: Two game developers have created a charming 8-bit Nintendo version of “The Great Gatsby,” and it could be the first time a masterpiece of American literature has ever been merged with a little electronic man collecting coins and killing bad guys. You play Nick Carraway as he searches for Jay Gatsby, leaping from platform to platform as you fend off demented flapper girls and tray-wielding waiters with your magical flying hat. So basically, it’s exactly like the book.”
And I thought, with The Great Gatsby movie either doing well, or completely “bombing” – depending on who you read – this might spark some interest ….
If you don’t want to play the game, here’s a video of someone else playing it. Oh, that’s right – I now have to say spoilers to the game if you watch the video. (Sheesh….)
And here’s the game …. enjoy!!!!
