Not so hot evidentially. This is an emulated C64 with some enhancements but its still kicking Doom at 20Mhz. It’s ugly, muddy and I would say unplayable, you can actually see the framerates…
Phillip Raupach did an awesome job of replacing all the sounds in this Matrix scene with 8-bit sounds from old school video games. It’s definitely Nintendo era, I hear some Mario Bros in there.
Here’s a trippy, seizure-inducing nod to the Flappy bird trend. Ridiculous Glitching — the name sums it up — takes some liberties with Pac-Man graphics and throws in chiptune-y techno. There’s only one control while you dodge mustached ghosts and grab cherries. It’s simple but damn addicting. I got a score of 14…some crazy bastard has the high score of 206.
If Pulp Fiction was a NES game…
Well done CineFix.
Yep, you heard right. Google has another Easter egg. Go ahead and click on the Image Search in Google and type “Atari breakout” in the search box… quotes not needed. A breakout game will appear with Atari images as the blocks. If you’re lazy, click on this link.
I’m not quite sure what I’m looking at. It’s got dials, plugs and switches and resembles a 1940’s telephone switchboard. It’s called Ming Mecca which happens to be a reference from the movie “Pi”, and it generates “video games”.
Ming Mecca by Special Stage Systems, is an analog video game synthesizer also referred to as a voltage controlled video game console. Not that this explains much. The amazing yet abstract 80’s debut trailer below doesn’t help either.
Nothing like a good video game parody. Here’s a Pac-man one by RicePirate that’s short but funny as hell. RicePirate is a phenomenal animator, check out some of his work on Newgrounds.
Nothing says retro like a custom, wooden Atari 2600. This guy in Turkey, who goes by “retro_mood”, created a portable Atari 2600 that works with the old school cartridges and includes just about all the functionality of the original console. Plus, he added a pause function somehow. That wasn’t heard of back in the day kiddies.
