8-bit recreations are always neat to see and while some sites are buzzing about Guitar Hero recreated for the NES we’re going to take a look at a “Famicom” (note the quotes) version of Pac-Man Championship Edition.   Give it a quick glance and the video looks like bread and butter Pac-Man. However, this clip […]

By Spencer . December 22, 2008 . 1:39pm

Hearing the news about the Castlevania movie being in a standstill sparked my memory about another Castlevania movie. The film I’m thinking of is based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse and it’s animated. Originally, it was supposed to be a direct DVD release, but a few months ago the production blog claimed the project was […]

By Spencer . August 15, 2008 . 3:24pm

CinnamonPirate, the site that unearthed a pirated version of Final Fantasy VII for the Famicom, has an excellent article describing a pirated version of Chrono Trigger for the Famicom (via GameSetWatch!). The thought of 8-bit Chrono Trigger sounds like a technical feat, but CinnamonPirate describes the game as a miserable failure. It’s not the scaled […]

The Muppet Babies test arcade classics

By Spencer . June 20, 2008 . 11:54am

Jim Henson’s 1980’s cartoon series did more than splice Star Wars clips with toddler Kermit the Frog imagining himself as Luke Skywalker. In one episode the Muppet Babies got a brand new Nintendo Pretendo, which gave the writers a chance to parody video games. Kermit enters Frogger, Fozzie is thrown into Tetris, and Miss Piggy […]

While the Pokemon franchise is immensely popular Nintendo has yet throw any of their cuddly creatures into a proper platformer. However, some pirate company did and created Pka Chu. I got a chance to play the pirate ROM, which is essentially a sprite swap of Super Mario Brothers.     I guess this yellow thing […]

Double Dragon, also known as this week’s lonely Virtual Console game for North America, is quite different from the arcade version.
