Play Borderlands 2 in your browser right now!

Well…sort of. What you can play instead is a 16-bit demake of Borderlands 2 – as if it were your typical Amiga game. You get to choose from any of the four heroes from Borderlands 2 – Salvador, Zer0, Axton and Maya – and take out a top-down Arena of psychos midgets, skags and all sorts of other fuzzy sprite-based Borderlands baddies. It’s pretty addictive (just like Borderlands!) and comes complete with tons of guns, Claptrap and levelling up.

You can play it here – but be warned the site is taking a stern hammering, so might take a while to load up.

Joining in the nostalgic fun is a video review of Borderlands 2’s 16 bit version from 1989 – including what could be the world’s very first video-game related freakout captured on faux film. Borderlands 2 is currently the Lazygamer team’s most anticipated game – and everything else is going to take a bit of a backseat come September 21.

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.
