This tongue-in-cheek game lets you act your way through a heroic scene in the fictional film-within-a-film, Tropic Thunder.

Commissioned by Paramount Pictures to promote the satirical action movie, this game is a humorous take on arcade shooters. The player controls an actor in an overblown action scene, and is awarded points for a spectacularly heroic performance.

We created a top-down parallax scrolling game engine using bitmap blitting to get real arcade performance, an engine we developed and refined for later projects. And it’s full of explosions.
