Play 'vintage' Watchmen game free online!

Studio releases '8-bit' Flash beat 'em up to coincide with the release of the Watchmen movie.

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a virtual arcade machine to coincide with the release of the Watchmen movie, its highly anticipated adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel. In a clever marketing twist, the game mimics old video game technology from the mid-1980s — the time when most of the movie takes place. Created by 'Veidt Enterprises' (an organisation that features heavily in the film and book), the game is a traditional 2-D beat 'em up that follows the crime-fighting exploits of the Minute Men superhero team.

Similar in style to the arcade classic Double Dragon, the free Flash game allows you to play as either Night Owl or Silk Specter. To get your fix of the game, visit the official Web site.

Watchmen the movie is set to hit theatres worldwide on 6 March. Along with the free Flash game, a proper video game tie-in for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is also in the works.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
