Watchmen Gets Its First Video Game

While next-gen gamers around the world wait patiently for Watchmen: The End is Nigh to debut on Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network (and PC, too? I can’t keep track)  The folks at the UK Watchmen website have come up with an enjoyable browser game that harkens back to the days of Final Fight and Streets of Rage (or River City Ransom and Double Dragon, if you go back to the 8-bit days.)  Players can choose to play as Nite Owl or Silk Spectre (specifically their Golden Age iterations) and make their way through three levels, punching and kicking everybody they come across in the name of justice.  There are neat little easter eggs to be found, but mostly this is just for casual gamers who are fans of the movie and want to experience some of the classic superhero fun of keeping the streets safe by beating everyone on them senseless.  Click here to play.
