NES Style Great Gatsby Game

You heard right. The best-selling classic The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is now a video game! It’s kind of like if Mario turned into a roaring 20’s debonair man who had ample cash and time to waste. You attack butlers, drunks, and flapper girls and boys, doing the Charleston at you, with what appears to be a boomerang hat (or a porkchop, I can’t tell). And if you jump into a golden fedora (you know, when wearing a fedora made sense and didn’t make you look like a doucher) your whole outfit turns golden and you can throw your little golden fedora boomerang twice as far. I’ve always sucked at these type of jumping/shooting combo games, but I’ll be trying my darndest to complete this game. Enjoy!

I also tried my hardest not to die while taking screen caps of the game so you can see for yourself what it looks like 🙂
