Regardless of whether you play Menace Beach, Sunday Funday or the slightly pornographic Miss Peach World (exclusive to Asian markets), you'll be left with a sub-par action game that is devoid of any real good ideas. There's nothing original about fighting ninjas or escaping a clown. Even the save-the-girl storyline isn't very original, though the child predator angle is at least unique.
While there is some interesting sprite work going
on here, and some fun and thought went into the story and enemy
design, the only menace encountered is attempting to play.
The game looks bad, sounds worse, and promotes creepy voyeurism a la the continuous undressing of your girlfriend at the beginning of every stage. My main point of contention with Menace Beach, though, is that there would be no challenge if it weren’t for the broken controls. If Scooter controlled responsibly and not like a drunken carouser, this game would be beatable in five minutes and it would highlight the lack of anything actually occurring in the levels. Menace Beach thrives on brokenness. Don’t indulge it.
