Banzai DVD Game

The only game I play on my on my computer is chess, but there are other games available on the Internet, many others, to be sure, including a somewhat humorous one, Screenlife Games' Banzai DVD game. This is a rather complex game with rules and regulations and graphics attempting to explain it to the uninitiated. Unlike chess, it is not played on a standard eight by eight board and unlike checkers it is not a game where pieces advance until they become kings when they reach the final square. Instead it is a game that is based on a now canceled television show which sparked some controversy (probably the same way Amos 'n' Andy did during an earlier era) for depicting Asians in a stereotypical manner. There is a Web site that has a video which contains more information about the game. The game makers are now hoping to sell the Banzai DVD game online and toward this end have created a Myspace page for the game at myspace.com/takotheocto. Apparently designed by gaming wunderkind Chip Stewart of Screenlife Games, LLC, it is based upon an idea by Gary MacGrew and Nick Saad. Probably the most unique feature of the game is the wealth of video clips from the television show, many of which contained humorous spoofs of existing television game shows. ScreenLife Games is at it again. They launched a new Banzai game. Check it out:
