I’m sure it will come as no surprise to anyone that a game called Attack of the Movies 3D is just as cheesy and low-budget as its title. This arcade light gun-style shooter has the basics that could have made it a decent budget romp, but it’s lacking in real gameplay “oomph.” It’s just mindless point-and-shoot blasting through six different B-movie environments, and it’s over in about an hour. At least you get four pairs of red/blue 3D glasses and a pretty wicked lenticular package for your troubles.
Imagine a game like House of the Dead or Time Crisis. That’s the kind of game Attack of the Movies 3D attempts to be. Each level is a standalone “movie” inspired by old-school films of the past few decades — things like a giant insect invasion, a robotic revolt, an underwater shark attack, and a run though a haunted graveyard. At the very least, each of the six different scenarios offers a visually different approach to the same gameplay.
