De-makes (inspired by an interesting find!)

Post by Alex79uk »

Whilst searching for something entirely unrelated, I stumbled across a version of Final Fantasy VII remade entirely for the NES. Check this out :



That's not a technical demo. That's a complete and fully playable version of the game - for the NES! This absolutely blows my mind! The work that must have gone in to this is incredible. I love this game, and whilst I know full well I'm not going to sit through the whole game in this fashion (although I am considering a replay of the original but cane decide whether to wait for the remake ((modern remake)) or not) I will definitely be spending a couple of nostalgia filled hours with it.

I was just amazed by this.

So anyway, to make a thread out of it - anyone came across any other interesting de-makes of games for systems they were never supposed to be played on?

That's really cool. I remember reading about a text adventure version of God of War, but my favourite is Doom on the VIC20. Yes, it looks dreadful, but it's a real technical achievement given the limitations of the machine. You can see it here: http://youtu.be/Y7h3H-_8N_o

the ASCII portal demake game is actually pretty cool manages to stay very true to the gameplay mechanics and style of the original game , well worth playing but not sure where you can find it nowadays online. played it a few years back on my gp2x caanoo as a freeware title think its been ported to mobile phones so most likely on android or ios.

oh and the famous Atari 2600 halo demake is funny but doesn't look too fun to play from what I've seen of it.

I really liked this cute remake of Team Fortress 2 into a pixel art side-scroller...
