Pixelforce’s 8-bit Halo

1 min read


Eric Ruth Games, the fine folks who brought you pixellated 8-bit versions of Left 4 Dead and DJ Hero have created another modern retro title, this time demaking one of the most popular and influential console shooters in history – Halo.

Instead of the first-person perspective, you’ll get to play the game as an 8-bit side-scrolling platform shooter, with the delicious addition of isometric warthog driving bits. If you like your games in 16 colours with a decidedly old-school slant, download the game here. For those of you who just want to take a short gander at it for the sake of curiosity, hit the jump for a trailer.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
