Avoid the Noid

Post by wildrooster » Tue May 11, 2010 12:37

Anyone ever play this? It totally popped into my head last night. It came on a random disc from a friend who must have gotten with his pizza or something (there was a pizza ban in my house for many years - which I think is what makes me so off today).

Anyways, it was surprisingly fun for such a lame attempt at an advertising game. It was probably one of the first advertising games.

This link is weird, though. The gameplay video is for a later NES version in 1990 called Yo! Noid. I'm talking about the 1989 version, which you can see when you click the CGA image at the middle right of the page.

I came across that once in an article on advertising in games. Never actually played it though.

haha :lol At the time I couldnt find a screenshot of the noid and wasn't experienced enough to take screen captures, so I made that sprite by opening Avoid the noid, pausing it, looking at the sprite and then hittting the windows key and drawing what i remembered :dopekeen My noid also has no ears because I wasn't experienced with changing sprite size.

Anyway, I loved this game. Not sure If i ever beat it, but I did get to the roof of the building where those damn noids start flying airplanes and dropping bombs on you.
