What, you don’t remember the SNES/Genesis game, Shaq Fu, in which Shaquille O’Neal is sucked into an alternate dimension and must fight an evil mummy? Where the hell have you been for the past 19 years? Well, at least you can still give ShaqDown a spin.

The spiritual successor, which is available today for iOS and Android, is slightly different from the original. Instead of a 2D fighting game, it’s a 2D side scroller. But otherwise, it still looks just as … charming… as its predecessor:

I love it whenever some game that looks like a video game school mid-semester project that was done literally at the very last minute, and while high the entire time, is a legitimately endorsed thing. Which is indeed the case here.
