Video games adapted into film, and films adapted into video games are very common. And while neither one turn out very good, some offer a glimmer of hope that it can be done right. That notion falls into the latter since video games adapted from films like X-Men: Origins and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World have done very well both commercially and critically. To help promote the wide release of the The Raid 2, the film is getting a video game of it’s own, and the best part, you don’t even have to buy it. Even better, Sony Pictures Classic, XYZ Films, and eOne Entertainment is offering a chance to win an XBox One. Hit the jump to learn more.

The premise of the 8-bit game is simple, you choose one of four players to fight in a side-scrolling bloody game of survival. The old school feel will bring you back to the days of Sega and SNES. Your choices are: Rama (an undercover cop), Hammer Girl, Baseball Bat Man, or Prakoso (a machete wielding assassin).

The longer you survive the more points you score, but the faster you score the more enemies come your way. Basically you button mash until your fingers pop off. There is a leaderboard to keep track of your progress. Thanks to Movies.com for the heads up.

The Raid 2 is out now in limited theaters, and will expand nationwide on April 11.

He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen – a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls – rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

Formidable though they may have been, Rama’s opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap.
