This week in Retro Reminisce, Justin and I revist a classic 16bit licensed beat-em-up game titled The Tick. Based off of a popular comic book hero and underrated Saturday morning cartoon on Fox Kids, The Tick is a standard beat-em-up action title similar to games like Streets of Rage, Final Fight and Double Dragon. In this episode we talk about the game’s connections to its source material, how it tries to differentiate itself from the arcade beat-em-up genre, and how well the game holds up today. Afterwards we will cover the game’s pricing trends and tell you how rare it is just in case you would like to check it out for yourself.
