Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (often simplified to AVGN Adventures) is an action-platforming video game developed by British studio FreakZone Games and published by ScrewAttack Games, released in September of 2013 for Microsoft Windows via Steam, and later for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in 2015.

The game later got a sequel in 2016, titled Angry Video Game Nerd II: ASS-imilation.

The game is intentional satire over how brutally difficult, and often for the wrong reasons, old school games are.

Plot

The Nerd and his friends are playing a mediocre game when a powerful force sucks the Nerd's friends inside the game. An arm grabs the Nerd by the testicles (a homage to Action 52) and forces the Nerd to play the shitty game in order to save his friends and escape.

Bad Qualities

  1. Excessively punishing level design that kills you constantly with cheap obstacles like death blocks, killer rainbows, etc.
    • Death blocks are overused.
  2. The game has a level based on the notorious Atari Porn games, which can disturb some players, especially kids. In fact, during the Nerd's review, when he found out about the level, he warned his younger fans not to play the level.
  3. In one of the worlds, there's an area with spikes containing lava on top of spikes, with fire-sharks swimming in it, more spikes coming from the sides, ready to close in and squashing the player while stabbing at the same time and some laser cannons, which makes no sense.
  4. The Halloween level is difficult due to the very fast enemies, collapsing platforms, and that it's in tunnel vision.
  5. Some of the rockets that appear in the game look too phallic.
  6. Some death blocks appear out of nowhere on the LJN (Laughin' Jokin' Numbnuts) stage, just to make things more difficult.
  7. AVGN's nemesis (who is the final boss of the game), Fred Fuchs (spelled "Fred Fucks" in the game) is frustratingly difficult to defeat.

Good Qualities

  1. The soundtrack is awesome and sounds epic. It sounds like you would want to make a NES themed soundtrack to fit the 2010s standards, like Shovel Knight.
  2. While the game the Nerd and his friends are sucked into is described as a mediocre game, the game plays very well.
  3. Every time you die, a vulgar paragraph is shown that sounds exactly like something the Nerd would say, some of them can be humorous like in the show.
  4. It has some very humorous, silly tongue in cheek gameplay like for example; (when Santa's dead body is used as the Nerd's sled to travel in the snow area [like in Crash Twinsanity] considering that he was a villain)
  5. The cameos from the Angry Video Game Nerd series appear like characters such as Super Mega Death Christ, Glitch Gremlin, The Bullshit Man, Fred Fucks, and Mike appear in this game. There are also cameos featuring some of the Nerd's ideas like the aforementioned extreme Super Pitfall death area or games he reviewed like Cybermorph that either appear as villains like The Giant Claw or side characters.

Reception

The developers wanted to make this game to honor the Angry Video Game Nerd, but really, due to its difficulty, it disappointed him more than honoring him, to the point of even disliking it and deleting it at the end of his review, saying "Take that, game!".

When SomeCallMeJohnny reviewed the game, he praised the massive amount of AVGN callbacks and said that fans of ultra-hard old school games are likely to enjoy it, but he also noted that the game went a tad too far with the intentionally bad game design for the sake of satire.

Johnny said that the game's enjoyment depends on if you're willing to play along with the satire, otherwise this is just a frustrating and unforgiving game. He also said that the best part of the game, is the simple fact that it exists in the first place because it shows how much James Rolfe has accomplished as the AVGN.

A remaster of both AVGN games named AVGN I & II Deluxe was announced, and was eventually released for Microsoft Windows and Nintendo Switch on October 30, 2020, with ports for Xbox and PlayStation consoles being released on March 19th, 2021.

Trivia

  • Fred Fuchs is actually not a game developer. He is a producer that worked on Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula. His name appeared in one of the licensed games and one of the Nerd's best gags was born.
    • Fred "Fucks" eventually made an appearance in the AVGN episode "Life of Black Tiger", portrayed by Gilbert Gottfried.
    • In the original version of the game, Fred "Fucks" resembled Sam Beddoes, the main developer of the game, whereas in the AVGN I & II Deluxe remaster, he was redesigned to resemble Gottfried's portrayal of the character.
  • This game is one of the Honorable Mentions in WatchMojo's Top 10 Hardest 2D Platformers of all time.
