A while ago M2 company bought rights for Aleste series. The original developer was Compile. As you may know Compile developed Zanac and The Guardian Legend.
M2 created the Aleste sequel – GG Aleste 3. And it’s not just a new game. It is made on Game Gear system. So it’s a real ROM which can work on Game Gear console. It is available on Game Gear Mini. And also it is in Aleste collection on Nintendo Switch.
They captured Compile’s vibe pretty good. The game looks really nice. And has good soundtrack.
This immediately put a thought in my head. What if they could develop The Guardian Legend sequel? If someone is reading this and find this a good idea, then try to contact them and suggest them this idea.
This is fun. Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link randomizer has an option to switch sprite to another. This is how Miria sprite looks like in it. Yes she is green. But NES limitations made that way that if she was red then everything around that uses the same color would be red.
And by the way have you noticed that the music in map walking view in Zelda 2 has some similarities with The Guardian Legend start tune(Approaching Naju)?
Zelda 2 – overworld theme
The Guardian Legend – Corridor 0(Approaching Naju)
Check out the moment when Miria raise up tri-force at 2:22:35. This is a funny happy face. Also she has a kiss with Hyrule there, or is it a hug?
Also here is the new Astrolancer demo from Stuffman:
Simple but interesting homebrew NES game – Böbl. Modern NES games sometimes show interesting features that could exist back then. We never seen them. In this one there are kinda “physical” water splashes when you dive in and out of the water.
