8 Bit Killer
The fantastic 8 Bit Killer is a wonderful piece of freeware brought to my attention by the latest issue of Game Developer. Though it has 3-D objects, the game essentially mimics the classic (original) 2.5-dimensional Doom and Wolfenstein shooters, but with a serious 8-Bit/SNES sheen. Reminds me a lot of the SNES port of Doom, actually, but a lot more fun. Complete with Bionic Commando-esque cut-scenes and a fair degree of challenge, not to mention an awesome soundtrack, this is a must-play if you like modern execution with a retro flair. Destined to be on your iPhone soon. Props to Locomalito!
