New NES Homebrew - Tailgate Party
« on: June 18, 2017, 20:00:35 PM »
OrabGames has released a new game for the Nintendo Entertainment System called Tailgate Party.  The game is currently available for ordering.

Tailgate Party is a party game designed to make use of the Power Pad by bringing cornhole to the NES. My goal was to take this unpopular peripheral and give it a good use that everyone would enjoy! What better way than tossing projectiles at a 30 year old controller! Tailgate Party features a Single-Player Story Mode as well as a Multiplayer Mode. In addition, players can choose from 11 playable characters, 7 game modes, and a full soundtrack written by NA forum member, Zi. Not only that, it includes achievements that you must decipher to unlock! In Story Mode, guide Andy and Ellie through the Shuckers parking lot as they learn about the evil that has taken over the gameday experience. You will be faced with 9 different opponents and 2 difficulty settings as you master your cornholing craft. As you defeat each opponent, they will be unlocked in Vs Mode.
 
This game requires a Power Pad and a set of 8 corn bags or bean bags to toss at the Power Pad.

Here are a couple of videos showing some of the mechanics and features of the game.

Yes, it is very creative by using that controller.  I wonder how many people have those!
