    Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) episode 173: The Immortal for NES. The review part was filmed in one continuous shot. The Immortal is an isometric adventure game originally created for the Apple IIGS by Will Harvey and published by Electronic Arts. The main plot revolves around a wizard attempting to find his mentor in a large and dangerous labyrinth. The game is known for its high degree of graphic violence (it is much reduced in the NES version) along with its punishing difficulty. Let's see if the Nerd can tackle this game and his own dungeon.

The dragon in the game itself looks a lot like the dragon from the 1981 film Dragonslayer and also resembles the dragon from the 1994 live action/animated film The Pagemaster.

Big props for trying something original for a complex piece like this. A one-take with a production like this is seriously not easy and probably took a long time to setup and get right, that's real passion.

Has anybody else noticed that graphically, this game and the game boy advance versions of the lord of the rings two towers and return of the king are the same? In fact, the character model you play as in this game is Gandalf the grey’s character model in the two towers GBA game? Makes sense with EA having made both games but just something interesting I noticed because I spent a nice chunk of childhood playing those lord of the rings games

James you should review some more 3do games, i think that’s ripe for content. i know you covered it in your plumbers dont wear ties episode, but i think it’d be cool if you looked into doing episodes on the following, or maybe incorporating them into an overall 3do review: - hell, a cyberpunk thriller - killing time - way of the warrior - demolition man - supreme warrior + corpse killer (although this could just be covered in a standalone “digital pictures” episode where you review them alongside garbage like marky mark make my video, which is another game that’d be hilarious to see a review on) - sex (yes, there is literally a 3do game just titled sex) - the daedalus encounter - crash n burn
