Casual Pixel Shack

@Francis Coulombe has some kind of a challenge of changing screenshots of the old pixel games into anything else pixel. Upgrade, remix, mashup and whatever. This time he suggested The Guardian Legend in his Casual Pixel Shack.

The results are quite impressive!

I also added these pictures to the Gallery

Bubblegum stickers in 90’s in Russia

In 90’s in Russia a lot of people glued stickers on their fridges. Recently, some street artist with the nickname A11c1ear made large copies of these 90s stickers and put them on the streets. A lot of people felt huge nostalgia about these.

I don’t know how it was in other countries but the themes should be familiar. They are mostly about worldwide popular stuff like games, movies, cartoons etc. Like Mortal Kombat, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles to name a few.

Here is the video showing those huge stickers:

And here is few examples of 90s fridges:

Sonic 30th Anniversary Symphony

All Sonic fans are probably already know about this. I am not that much a fan of Sonic, but I love stuff like this. Music from the game played with a full symphonic orchestra. With a good arrangement it sounds great and enjoyable!

This was put on youtube a week ago and I found out only today.

I set the start time mark to 14:50. It’s where the actual concert starts. And before that is some random music from the game and covers.

Rygar Vengeance

So are there any NES Rygar fans? This might be interesting for you. A fan made game Rygar Vengeance is finished and ready to play. It’s kinda like a remake or a custom version with few more possibilities. It adds little a mix from the arcade version. Which breaks cohesivity in the style of the game.

The video introduction doesn’t show enough of the gameplay tho. He asks 16$ for the game. I don’t know if it’s worth it.

There is only one guy(SeanPwnery) recorded any gameplay of the game yet. I am not sure if the circular attack costs something, or is it obtained later. He doesn’t use it for some reason. And I saw in previous demo videos that in this game Rygar can do the circular attack. Like it was in the arcade version. Was it removed?

So here is some gameplay by SeanPwnery:

Amico Intellivision – is it going to be dead born?

A very strange presentation of Amico Intellivision on E3 came out. It seemed for me that people were excited the most about Earthworm Jim 4. And they did not show any updates of the development of the game.

The games shown in the presentation looked mostly generic and outdated. It has a feeling of Action 52 cartridge. They say it’s a casual console to play together. But there are tons of casual games on mobile phones, and a lot of them look way better and attractive. Games shown on Amico look like they are generic games from 2000-2005, that were produced by small teams.

The platformer game Finnigan Fox looks just like thousands of similar indie games you can buy on Steam. It looks OK, but not even close to the best ones.

I don’t know if this gonna be a success. Maybe there are people who would enjoy to play such games. Maybe it can take a place to play cards and dice games, and other board games.

They say they have a special controller. But the only specific thing I saw is that you can shake dices and then throw them into a screen. Maybe that is amusing, but this is not enough. Make more stuff that can be specifically done using such controller. Like pouring a salt in a cooking game. Or maybe a steering wheel of a car. Maybe interactions with objects could be done using such controller. It also should be fun to do. I did not saw something like that in the presentation.

Dolphin Quest on 7:29, similar to Ecco The Dolphin, looked OK. They say it is the same team who developed the original title. However. The only game people seemed to be excited about was Earthworm Jim 4. It probably the only game to make people buy the console. But it gotta be a really good game that can please fans of the original ones.
