It's a good idea, but nowadays it has been overused. IWBTG was my limit with that Retro-Revival thing.
I think this game has serious limitations towards controls. I get it, old consoles had only two buttons, but hey, that doesn't mean you should do the same, you don't have to make moving around so slow and hard, you don't have to replicate the exact same limitations we had back then, those are not the factors that make a tribute an instant success, i believe it's more about how you take only few old elements into something new and creative. Otherwise it just feels like recycling, and why would I play this when i can play the original games instead.
7/10 for the effort, the graphics, the coding, and all that stuff.
You can do a better work.
Good game but It felt a bit weird how some earlier levels were harder then the further levels.. :S
this is like the Family Guy of nes. I am playing it having fun doing the achievements, then will toss it. The issue I have with it isn't to be mean or degrading to the work involved, but the question is rather why?
It's bloody and that is supposed to be - funny? It's nes, how many times has newgrounds been hit with sex blood or cursing in 'tributes ' or 'parodies' of nintendo? Game play- yah, its good- nice level design----no wait, there is no level design, it's the games we played with new sprites on the old levels. That was the idea of course, but this just made me go play the old games on my emulator on my wii.
If this is a tribute of nes games, why is the continue screen a rip from ninja gaiden arcade and why is the final ending of carnage a rip off of ninja scroll's 2nd scene brutalization of humans by a monster?
It's a fun game, but Robot Chicken does sick humor better, and unfortunately, so does family guy...
It speaks for its self, play it.
All the classics that most of us know from our childhood, are all wrapped up in a small manageable package that packs the punch of 10 million "boxes". Fun wise that is.
Tgat was amazing!
Bravo to everyone envolved.
Fans of video games make bettere video games than the original developers.
I hope you win an award.
