Resident Evil Gaiden

Functionally good pixel art and shockingly engaging combat mechanics surprised and delighted me, curious enough to play the Gameboy Color oddity, Resident Evil Gaiden. This little game manages to hit so many classic Resident Evil beats I found myself thinking the same thoughts I’d think playing a mainline game “Ok, I can survive this room with just a knife. Maybe.” “Grenade launcher ammo, I should remember I have this.” “Why did the game just give me three herbs? Oh god.” Campy, scary, and starring total beefcake Barry, Resident Evil Gaiden is a strange and fascinating take on this evergreen series.
