Team of Programmers Recreates the N64’s Ocarina of Time in Glorious 16-bit 2D

It may seem a bit backwards to take a 3D game and recreate it as a 2D one, but, the results are very promising. Check out the boss fight at the end of this video. It’s like finding a all-new SNES Zelda game. The project is only 15% done (started last year) and the programmers have already received some letters from Nintendo, but not a formal cease and desist. We can only hope that they can complete this awesome project soon! It’s definitely more interesting to me than the attempt to make Zelda 1 into 3D.

They even recently announced that a multiplayer online mode will be coming. How this functions, I can only guess. Maybe it’s like Secret of Mana, same game, but with multiple swords swinging? It seems the project is completely non-profit, just a work of true fans. Check it out today. Playable demos are available.

Studio Dustmop Releases Star Versus on Physical NES Cart


Studio Dustmop has recently released a amazing 2-player Nintendo Entertainment System on an actual cartridge. The game pays homage to one of the first video games ever, SpaceWar! but will also remind you of its descendant Asteroids. The music by Luke Silas keeps the action in high gear and the plethora of options keep the gameplay fresh. I was really impressed with the pseudo multi-paralax scrolling on some of the stages as well. I like the spaceship’s little short-range sword weapon. Its all kinds of nostalgia playing this game. I am wondering what their next project will be. It’s great to see some developers releasing physical carts once again. This is the first of a few physical cart games that are coming soon, including Brad Smith’s Lizard. Purchase your copy here!
