Monty on the Run, is an all time classic British video game, which was only really brought to the attention of the world recently when it’s soundtrack was used in “I Wanna Be The Guy”. And the game has gone on to be voted the second greatest Western video game soundtrack of all time (After the track “Tristram” in Diablo), I also highly recommend listening to Monty on the Run’s sequel (Auf Wiedershen Monty!) as it’s pretty kick-ass too! (though criminally only came in at #188, as it’s so obscure) but I used a jazz remix in my last Kusoge club video!
I do plan to give the whole “Monty Mole” franchise a GYCW retrospective some point in the future (as this retro corner does it absolutely no justice) as there’s a fascinating history behind it with it originally being used as political propaganda in the British coal miners strike in the 1980′s with Arthur Scargill (who appears at the end of the game!) Though, the final game in the series “Impossamole” did appear on the Turbografx 16 in the US. (which ironically was never released in the UK).
Quick Note: this is another retro corner episode made for Xleague.TV, but then was adapted into a Games Yanks Can’t Wank episode for the web (which is where you may have seen it before), but for the first time ever, this is the original unedited retro corner finally shown in it’s full glory!!!
