Following the fine tradition of games like of Shaq-Fu and Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City, ShaqDown is now available for Android through Google Play. ShaqDown marks Shaquille O’Neal’s triumphant return to the world of videogames. After conquering basketball and movies (Kazaam), it was only a matter of time until Shaq brought back his dominant style to gaming. *snicker*
ShaqDown borrows from several modern and typical videogame conventions — apocalyptic future, bloodthirsty zombies, etc. However, the gameplay is of the old-school side-scrolling variety. The coolest aspect of the game is its art, which was headed up by comic-book and videogame artist Long Vo.
Check out the game’s trailer below and please let me know if you’re interested in slaughtering zombies as Shaquille O’Neal.
