The Blues Brothers: Jukebox Adventure (MS-DOS)
And the music is the same. It's a familiar Blues Brothers tune, except it's been warped into something terrible.
Why is Elwood cheerfully crushing cartoon snails, insects, and... whatever the hell that thing on the left is supposed to be. Some kind of robot with rollerskate wheels?
This seems to be a pretty standard platformer so far. It seems I have to collect records for ammo, and throw them at enemies to kill them. Confusingly that mushroom looks like it's further in the background than the tree, but I can use it as a springboard to jump higher.
Why is it so dark all of a sudden? OH SHIT, I'M RUNNING OUT OF... TINE? Tike? It almost looks like it says 'JAKE' but that can't be it.
Man, even on Jake's password screen Elwood still shows up to harass small creatures.
Of course that means I have make sure to hit the switch or else I'll certainly die. And the records don't fire until you hold the button down for a bit, so it's hard to be sure if he's going to even throw or not. Yeah, I think I'm done with this.
