Episode 013 – Comix Zone (1995)
This week in Your Parents Basement, we’re getting transported into an alternate dimension to fight comic book monsters! We’re playing Comix Zone on the Sega Genesis, a game with awesome artwork but frustrating play issues.

– We mention the Japanese box art on the show, which is shared by Brisket. You can find it here. It’s not NSFW, but it’s not exactly normal either.
– Also at several points, we mention the music video for “Take On Me” by A-ha, which you can read about on Wikipedia here. If you’ve somehow never seen it, it is on YouTube.
– Want to see a ridiculous speedrun of Comix Zone in 12:36? As usual, YouTube delivers.
– Interested in Game Center CX? You should be, it’s oddly hypnotizing to watch! Arino’s challenge of Comix Zone is here.
– Comix Zone starts at around $10 on Amazon, although the box and manual adds around $20 to the purchase price. As we said on the show, the game is available on Steam and online console stores for $3 and $5, respectively.
