Based off an actual noodle brand in Asia, this beat 'em up is nothing but a blatant marketing machine
These games are hardly ever good, right?
In fact, they all downright stink, if truth be told, right?
UFO certainly doesn't buck the trend, but it's not all bad
Man, he's gotta be one major ladies man eh?
You mainly fight those corporate thugs, but of course you'd expect a game of this nature to have some bizarre bad guys to pound. And you would be right
Talk about taking one big fashion risk!
I did mention blatant advertising, did I not?
Trash cans and the like reveal health refills or even a unicycle which acts as a devastating temporary weapon
Boss characters are as weird as the game itself
Boy, only the Japanese...
"STOP! IN THE NAME OF LOVE!"
When you beat a boss you get this cutscene
The game takes approx. 45 minutes to beat the 5 stages. UFO Kamen Yakisoban does nothing well. The hit detection is a bit off, the graphics and sound below par and the gameplay MEH. It's very ho-hum in every respect of the word
To its credit, it could be a lot worse, as these "advertisement games" usually are... but don't bother with this one unless you're a HUGE fanatic of the genre. Aside from its weirdness, it's very vanilla, middle-of-the-road stuff
