Remember The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge?

It's the weekend before Halloween, and my mind turns to thoughts of the spooky. After recently re-watching The Nightmare Before Christmas, I suddenly remembered its sequel, Oogie's Revenge. Never heard of the sequel? Well, it wasn't a movie -- it was a videogame!

In fairness, it was a very mediocre videogame, gameplay-wise. However, what was so interesting about it was the fact that it had full musical numbers that took the form of rhythmic boss fights, and Dr. Finkelstein even got his own song. 

Many of the songs were cool new takes on the original movie soundtrack, and there was a neat idea in place that had Jack able to switch between his normal, Sandy Claws and Pumpkin King forms, each with unique powers. As I say, the game wasn't all that hot, but it was still a fun idea. I'd love to see it remade with much better gameplay. 

Anybody else play it? Check out the videos of some of the musical numbers. It was pretty interesting stuff.

 

Sally's Song, now with a giant spider. I like the faster tempo they gave it.

Dr. Finkelstein gets his own all-original song. Obviously this was due to high fan demand.

The Trick-or-Treaters boss fight. This stuff is shameless fan service.

Oogie Boogie Man in a recreated casino brawl sequence, complete with badass song.
