Do you have a couple of TVs, a Metal Slug arcade cabinet, a pocket full of quarters, and a fog machine? If you do… rad. Watch The Godfather 2 and The Dirty Dozen simultaneously, turn on the fog machine and begin loading quarters into the Metal Slug arcade cabinet. You’ll have Italian gangsters, dead Nazis, foggy ambience and side-scrolling shooter action.
If for some reason you can’t simultaneously watch The Godfather 2 and The Dirty Dozen amidst foggy ambience while blasting through hordes of opposition in Metal Slug, then just play Crazy Monkey Studios‘ Guns, Gore and Cannoli, or it’s upcoming sequel: Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2.
The original Guns, Gore and Cannoli placed players into old Chicago, a world populated by early twentieth-century American gangsters… and zombies. Taking a page from side-scrolling shooters like Metal Slug and Contra, Guns, Gore and Cannoli let players frantically shoot their way through waves of zombies, overgrown rats, and mafioso as the screen scrolls by. As crazy as Guns, Gore and Cannoli is, its sequel, Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 ups the ante and pushes the new series into even more absurd territory.
Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 recently received an official launch date along with a launch trailer:
Zombies and gangsters are back in Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2, but zombies and gangsters may be the least of your worries this time around. Taking place during WWII, players will now also be up against the Nazi Socialist Party, and zombies who were once members of them.
With Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2, developers Crazy Monkey Studios have tweaked Guns, Gore and Cannoli’s gameplay mechanics. Now players can aim 360 degrees and can deploy double weapon-wielding. Luckily, players won’t have to go the distance alone. Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 supports local co-op (up to 4 players).
PC gamers will be able to play Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 upon its release on March 2, 2018. Plans to port Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 to consoles are in the works, but no official release date has been announced.
