What can you expect from a game like this? Not much, but as a kid you expected the world. Graphically, it's meh. The soundtrack is okay. But it's the controls and speed that kill it. It's the slowest moving "race" against the clock in a physical based game show.

Despite the control flaws, there is still some fun to be had with this game. Playing with a friend would probably lead to all sorts of hilarity, and even while playing alone it’s nice to get the satisfaction of kicking the computer team’s ass. It’s not a classic like the television show, but it’s entertaining in its own right.

The show Double Dare came out on Nickelodeon in the late 80s. The basic premise was that two teams of kids played against each other in both physical and mental challenges. The physical challenges always proved messy, and this show started the network's strange affinity for green slime. Later, the company Gametek, on a quest to create NES versions of every single gameshow on television, made a stop by here.
Sadly, perhaps predictably, this doesn’t translate at all and is simply an annoying exercise in button mashing to proceed through each uninspired segment. It’s a real shame, as the show could have been a great fit for a video game with some more thought put into the areas that actually caused people to tune into the television show.

Double Dare dares you to give a crap beyond fifteen minutes of play. Will you accept the challenge?

Luckily, Nickelodeon soon premiered its own game show: Double Dare! A few years later, Nintendo finally got around to cashing in, and we, the gaming public, were left with one of the worst games that Nintendo ever bothered to waste plastic making.
