TR Member Perks!

This week, TechRaptor is teaming up with FreakZone Games for another giveaway, who you may know as the developer of the recently released platformer based on the Angry Video Game Nerd. In addition to that series, FreakZone has also dabbled in a different type of retro tribute. That game is MANOS: The Hands of Fate.

MANOS: The Hands of Fate originated as a film, and I use the term film in the loosest way possible. The infamous original production was brought to popular consciousness thanks to Mystery Science Theater 3000, who lampooned the movie in one of the best episodes of the series. Since then, there have been countless tributes to the film, including an HD restoration of the original, four stage adaptions, and FreakZone’s platformer which imagines what a licensed NES game based on the movie would look like. Filled with references to MST3K and bad movies in general, it’s a fun nostalgic romp that I looked at on TechRaptor’s YouTube channel when it first got onto Steam.

So, I ask you, do you have what it takes to jump into the shoes of the incompetent family man Mike? Can you rise to the challenge of facing The Master and enduring the haunting Torgo theme? If so, join this giveaway and try your luck! It’ll be dark soon.

    Is this movie really that bad? Neither heard of this movie nor of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

  • JellyfishMonarch

    ok. to put how bad it is into perspective…

    Ok so you heard slow as molasses right? Well think molasses covered on a sloth at the south pole. you might get how slow and bad this movie is. The acting is the negative aspect of nic cages acting (him being over the top 120% of the time). The story was ok I guess? I can’t finish it even with mst3000.

    Also MST3000 is like watching a crappy movie with a handful of friends and you all just tear into it doing one liners and jokes. most of their episodes are good and i’ll always suggest watching “space mutiny”

    Btw… MST3000 is on hulu… and it has manos… You could kill 2 birds with one stone.

    I don’t get Hulu here in Germany, but I guess I have to watch it to make myself an opinion. Still, thanks for the info.

    This is what I love. Youtube is DMCAing videos from people with video game and music stuff in it, and then you find this kinda stuff, where people upload full movies and keep them for years! Awesome, just awesome, Youtube!
