Indieretronews.com shared some pretty cool news regarding the popular game, Cuphead. Remember the Game & Watch handheld games from the '80s? They were developed and released by Nintendo from 1980 to 1991 and each had only one game.
Well, it's back with the fan made Cuphead: Game & Watch! Which in our opinion, is the perfect retro-styled game to do this way. It looks like it was made for the throwback game series and would be fun to play just about anywhere.
The creators left a note to players on their page saying "Here is Cuphead: Game & Watch Edition, a tribute to one of our favorite video games. As Game & watch lovers, we wanted to mix these universes together and do our best to achieve a good result."
Would you buy a Game & Watch now in 2020 with so many other portable consoles like the Nintendo Switch?
Looks like we're getting yet another cloud gaming platform via Amazon called Luna. Available on PC, Mac, Fire TV, and iOS. It won't be available on
android right away, however, that version is being planned for after the launch.
Some of the largest gaming companies are coming together to use video games to help stop climate change. The Playing For The Planet Alliance was founded in 2019 and is committed to helping save the environment with goals like reducing CO2 emissions, planting new trees, and device recycling.
Retro fans, get ready for more games coming to the Amiga! Indieretronews.com shared the news that a game called "The Legend of Flaming Sword" is being coded for the Amiga ECS and the Amiga AGA systems.
Reddit is great for so many things with so many cool subreddits. An unassumingly awesome subreddit is MapPorn, which is exactly where we found an incredible map of Europe in the style of Super Mario World, and it is glorious!
The creator of this nostalgic and detailed map periodic lunchbox posted the map saying "Well, it's finally done. My map of Europe, inspired by Super Mario World! It took a couple of months, had to take some breaks because some of the work was incredibly tedious. I'm really happy with the results. After making a map of Iceland and The Netherlands I couldn't decide which country I wanted to do next, so I did them all."
It looks like a massive undertaking, and they said that while they don't know exactly how long it took, about a hundred hours went into creating it. There is even a time lapse video of the entire process. We weren't the only ones impressed with the pixelated map, user offensive_noises commented saying "Impressive! So detailed. You should get this printed, cause I surely think people want to hang this in their room." Yes, we are those people. Another user darwinpatrick said "This is mesmerizing! Incredible work. I agree with the other commenter; people would 100% buy this."
We have to agree, we are the people who would buy this and hang it on our wall. What do you think of the Super Mario World Inspired Map? Would you hang it on your wall?
