Watchmen Brawler Invokes The Spirit Of CapcomS

Deadline are working on a Watchmen brawler, but this isn't it. This game we're talking about today is an old-fashioned side-scroller, it has old-fashioned sensibilities and, best of all, it's free.

Hosted on the website for the upcoming Watchmen film, the Watchmen arcade game is - despite its "1977" production date - a decidedly 80's take on the side-scrolling beat-em-up, and features two of the original Minutemen (the team's predecessors) walking down streets and kicking trash cans.

It won't win any awards for innovation, but for something that's free, it does a great job of capturing both the feel of the comics and the shrill soundtracks to the games of the mid-80s.
