Tom Clancy's HAWX 2
Awesome 8-Bit HAWX 2 Flash Game Is Awesome

To celebrate the release of HAWX 2 this week, the fine folks over at Exploding Barrel have created yet another addictive flash game, this time for the upcoming fighter pilot game and this time, it's 8-bit. Booyah!

The 8-bit vertical scrolling shoot 'em up is very reminiscent of the 1984 Capcom title, 1942, and is a great stop gap to tide you over till the game's release. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that it kicks 1942's ass. Yes, I said it.

Don't take my word for it though, give it a try and see if you can post the top score. And yes, UK users will notice our logo on the title screen. Booyah!

And yes... I did just say booyah twice in one news post, so sue me.

Bookmark this page, I have a feeling you'll be coming back whenever you have a  few minutes to kill in the next few days.

Not that anyone cares any more, but the credit for this should go to Explosive Barrel games, not Exploding Barrel (which just so happens to be another games maker...)
