Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary

Today is Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary. The famous Famicom/NES game.

So I use this as an excuse to show this cool song “Rawest Forest” Reanimated Collab (SMRPG Music Video). It’s a collab on the original one with tons of artists do small parts of the original video. I am not a big fan of Mario so what I actually like is the song itself.

Also I saw this cute gif in the discussion

Steel Seraph is becoming better

We are watching the progress of this game. As it’s an indie game heavily inspired with The Guardian Legend. Author considers the feedback from people and improves the game. Steel Seraph is becoming better with time.

Take a look at the recent video showing some gameplay from the current game state.

Author is very responsive. So if you have a feedback for him then go contact. He will listen! There is definitely a lot of room for improvement. And feedback from players is the best help to find weak spots and improve.

Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary gadget

So for the Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary Nintendo announced this gadget:

And it looks like just an easy way to take money from the wallets.

I mean hey, this definitely just some basic computer with emulator in it! There are tons of handled consoles produced today. You can get cheap ones from Ali Express. And this one looks just the same type.

What you get inside?
-> Super Mario Bros 1
-> Super Mario Bros 2(AKA The Lost Levels)
-> Ball(Mario version) the first Game & Watch game
-> Digital clock with funny animations.

And that’s all.

They could at least create a different version of the Mario with new levels. Like an exclusive 35th anniversary version. There are Mario level editors out there to modify the ROM without coding. They would not even need to program anything.

And why not to have a collection of Game & Watch games inside? That would make sense and would be cool. Their idea came from that it was 40th anniversary of Game & Watch this year April 28.

I don’t know… What do you guys think?

The Guardian Legend full soundtrack music cover by Nostalgia Bubble

Nostalgia Bubble shared his remix/cover version of the full soundtrack for The Guardian Legend game.

It’s good to have all songs at once. But it is pretty amateur. The low end is a rumble mess. So it’s better to listen on speakers without lows 🙂

Also the loudness varies. Some songs are much louder than the others. Which make it not comfortable to listen through. You’ll have to reach the volume slider to lower down the volume, or turn up.

Anyway it’s great to see some people do fan stuff for the game! So I am happy to share it for everyone!

Guardian Legend ending music with VRC7

We missed this one in 2019. Cutter Cross ported Guardian Legend ending music on VRC7 sound. I think the only game with VRC7 was Lagrange Point. It’s kinda impressive. Almost 16bit Sega sound on 8-bit Nintendo console.

If you still not understand. VRC7 is special Konami’s circuit that works on 8-bit Nintendo console! Making the sound so great it’s comparable to 16-bit Sega.

The result is quite nice. Check it out:

Videogames remastered mockups

Through years there were so much of Videogames remastered mockups created by artists. Some of them makes wonder why it is not an actual game? The answer is simple if you are in the game industry. It is over-saturated. So it’s hard to put something in between thousands of great games.

But anyway. Just wanted to share some examples of nice mockups.

First goes Super Mario Bros 2 by likelikes

https://www.deviantart.com/likelikes/art/Super-Mario-Bros-2-487611123
There are tons and tons of art done for Super Mario universe, including mockups. So there is not much to say about it. Except that it is for unusual Super Mario game. And the reason is that Super Mario Bros 2 is not really a Super Mario game. It is reskin of the Doki Doki Panic game. Tho it was heavily inspired by Super Mario, but it was not exactly the Super Mario game.

Mockup looks really cute. The author has plently of game redrawings similar to this and some other styles.

My favorite is Turrican II by jnkboy

https://www.deviantart.com/jnkboy/art/Turrican-II-428563537
Looks very stylish. Great drawing technique. I imagine it to be a Keyboard+Mouse control. Where player has 360 degree full control over the direction to shoot.
The author is a great artist if you are curious. He is good not only at pixel art, but at full illustrations. He has some more game mockups. For example this downgrade Bayonetta 2D Shmup

Ducktales Remastered by Simon S. Andersen

This is how a great sequel could look on PC or 16 bit console back in 90’s. Great drawing skills with care. Uncle scrooge looks as he should in a great 16 bit game. This is the author of Owlboy game by the way. So it’s no wonder this looks so good.

He also posted animated mockup of Megaman recently. it looks very nice, but I don’t like Megaman‘s standing pose. And maybe his proportions could be tweaked a bit. However the art style and colors look gorgeous. Have a look at the video with the animation:
