New week, new music. What’s the absolute, most epic boss music you can ever play when you fight against your worst rival? According to Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden , it’s Sweet Georgia Brown by Ben Bernie and Maceo Pinkard. …I don’t really have a good joke to follow up on that one, so I’ll let the jazzy tune explain for itself.
Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden is a hilarious self-referencing game. You can download it at Tales of Games.
As the title suggests, Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden follows the famed basketball player, struggling to support his son, Hoopz, in a post-apocalypse world. While secretly teaching his son the outlawed basketball dribbles, Charles is falsely accused by the head of B-Ball Removal Department, Michael Jordan, for killing 15 million people with a Chaos Dunk. Charles naturally escapes from Michael’s clumsy grasps, and seeks for a safe refuge while hunting for the real culprit.
Barkley is a turn-based JRPG that uses a quick-time mechanic to enhance your attacks, much like Super Mario RPG series. The puzzles may remind some people of the Golden Sun series as well. And the enemies appearing readily on the map will remind many of Earthbound , down to touching the back of enemy giving you an extra turn.
