Smash TV creators Eugene Jarvis and Mark Turmell returned with this spinoff, bringing the gameplay elements of their previous hit into a 1990s political quasi-satire. Total Carnage sends its two shirtless heroes into the fictional Kookistan to defeat dictator General Achboob (we didn't say it was highbrow satire) and his mutant army, with even more over-the-top enemies and level design more akin to run-and-gun games like Ikari Warriors and Heavy Barrel. In addition to a wide range of enemies, weapon power-ups and even more ridiculous bosses (including a bizarre Hitleresque final boss), the game also features shortcuts, including both portals and the ability to type in a code to access later sections of the game. Can you make it to the Pleasure Domes (without cheating)?
Like Smash TV, Total Carnage requires two 8-way joysticks (one for running, one for gunning) and uses a single Start/Bomb button. Now go make your country proud (or ashamed, depending on your country).
