Reboot…Believe it or not, that can be an ugly word. Whatever the context is, you need to be sure that you are doing it right and for the right reasons. Looking at some Hollywood examples, we have Robocop, Psycho, Ghostbusters, The Karate Kid, the original Star Wars trilogy before the computer alterations …. Need I go on? The point is, LEAVE THE CLASSICS ALONE! However when dealing with videogames, it can be a completely different story.
Back in 1982, the arcade was graced with a fun little food game from Bally/Midway called BurgerTime. The premise of the game is very simple. Taken from KLOV.com, “Peter Pepper, the chef, moves around the screen, walking over the parts of a hamburger. As the chef walks over each item of the burger, it drops to the level below. Armed with pepper he can throw on his enemies, he must avoid Mr. Hotdog, Mr. Egg, and Mr. Pickle. Bonuses appear in the forms of ice cream, coffee, and French fries.” This may sound ridiculous, but mark my words, it was fun and addictive.
