“Prepare to board Robo-Freighter Paradroid to eliminate all rogue robots.”
Andrew Braybrook’s Paradroid garnered plaudits and captured imaginations upon its 1985 release, before going on to spawn a host of updates, sequels, spiritual successors and remakes. Leon, Michiel and Jesse are joined by NYU Game Center tutor and QWOP creator Bennett Foddy to delve deep into the circuits of the Zzap! 64 Gold Medal winner to discover what gives the legendary top-down tactical shoot ’em up its spark.
No music in this week’s issue, just audio from the game itself.
