YMMV / It Came From The Desert

Go To

  • Nightmare Fuel: The original version does a good job of invoking this with the giant ants. The TurboGrafx-16 version utterly fails at doing so, but almost makes up for it with the "rescue" sequences where the victims are slowly eaten alive by ants.
  • Padding: In the TurboGrafx-16 version.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The TurboGrafx-16 version has awesomely awful full-motion video in a similar fashion to Night Trap and Critical Path.
  • Special Effect Failure: All over the place in the TurboGrafx-16 version.
    • The (stop-motion) ant at the power plant and the canyon doesn't crawl from the ground insomuch as it just slides up and moves its appendages.
    • Whenever a character appears on TV, their heads poke out from the top of the screen.
    • The graphical quality of the game itself, which is extremely pixelated and grainy, also counts.
    • In cutscenes, whenever someone fires a gun, nothing comes out of them.

How well does it match the trope?
