Attack of the Flickering Skeletons: More Terrible Old Games You've Probably Never Heard Of [9781783524136]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Welcome to a world of games you never knew existed. You will probably wish you still didn't. YouTube sensation Stuart Ashen is back with his second instalment of terrible old computer games you've probably never heard of... because what the world needs right now is to know exactly how bad Domain of the Undead for the Atari 8-bit computers was.

Attack of the Flickering Skeletons is even bigger than the original Terrible Old Games You've Probably Never Heard Of - this second excavation of gaming's buried past will not only unearth more appalling excuses for digital entertainment, but also feature guest contributors and several special interest chapters not based around single specific games. These are NOT the games you've heard of a million times in YouTube videos. This is a compilation of truly obscure and dreadful games. Dripping with wry humour and featuring the best, worst graphics from the games themselves, this book encapsulates the atrocities produced in the days of tight budgets and low quality controls. These are even more appalling games that leaked from the industry's tear ducts, taken down from the dusty shelves of history by the man who has somehow made a living by sticking rubbish on a sofa and talking about it.


AUTHOR: Stuart Ashen makes videos for YouTube and writes comedy scripts and sometimes acts in things. He lives in Norwich, in a house filled with all sorts of useless items that he tells himself he needs for work. He is obsessed with old video games and things that aren't quite good enough for their intended purpose. On his YouTube channel he reviews the best of the worst tat that the world has to offer, showing an equal amount of commitment and enthusiasm for both. He has produced over 440 YouTube videos over an eight-year period. In 2013 he raised $73,000 for the production of a feature film Ashens and the Quest for the GameChild starring Warwick Davis and Robert Llewellyn. The film has been watched over 500,000 times on YouTube and is also available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
