8-Bit Dr. Horrible - Act 2 is up! Act Two of the 8-Bit Video Game version of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog has been posted as of this morning.

We actually get to see Captain Hammer throw a car at Dr. Horrible's head, in all its pixelated glory.

Yay! :) Loves me some 8-bit awesome horribleness!
"Captain Hammer threw a car at my head."

I hope someone finds a way to get Doctor Octoroc involved with creating the Doctor Horrible sequel. He's super talented and clearly has a passion for this universe.
I'm actually impressed by how the creator pulls together lines from different sections of the original but makes them work, such as lines from Act 1 ("Freeze ray. Tell your friends." "That's all Johnny Snow.") in the bridge scene.
Really, really love this! However, and now I'm going to sound like an ass, I can't stand when someone does something brilliant like this and misspells things. In act one there's a line where it should be "it's" not "its"...yeah, the little things bother me. But really, I did enjoy this! A lot!
@ Didifallasleep, there don't seem to be any apostrophes in the whole thing so I don't think it was a misspelling, but possibly a limitation of the program he was using to make it all.
Yeah, only one misspelling in the whole thing so far and that's better than most 8-bit games.
I love how he made that bonus game, where Dr Horrible goes around stomping down buildings :)
All Whedon are belong to us.
The "bonus game" is brilliant!
I love that to activate the bonus game, he went to the dart board. That was a really nice touch.
He really nailed the timing of "The hammer is my penis," ha.
"Yeah, only one misspelling in the whole thing so far and that's better than most 8-bit games."

Well, two, but they add to the authenticity. :-) Loved it!

(For those, like me, who prefer to watch it on YouTube, you can see it over here.)
This is genius! Loved the Bonus game with tiny Captain Hammer.

Someone needs to get on RPG Maker immediately and start making this game, no time to dilly-dally, just get moving people! :D
Absolutely brilliant again! And the none apostrophes thing just brought back warm memories for me, it's part of the genre really. I don't know if it was actually intentional, but for me it worked.

And yes the vid really makes you (or at least me) want to play the game. That's a huge part of what makes it so great.
I love that he added the ability to pause. This is the neatest fan created content I've seen all year.
Once again -- -head explosion from greatness-
So awesome! Love that we got to see the off camera bridge dedication incident go down. Just as i hoped it would with a car flying in off screen! Nicely done. :)
I wish I had a fancy phone so I could use one of these songs as a ringtone. This was so delightful!
It seems he plans to make it a real game:
@Nicole - It's not a real game yet so there is no ROM available, but
I'm going to do what I can to get it made into a real game.

Oh, that would be so awesome.
