    [​IMG] Super Bat Puncher (NES homebrew)
    New NES homebrew platformer.

    A somewhat rare treat today with a new NES platformer homebrew; although always welcome we see a fair few total conversion hacks and things of that magnitude as well as NES styled games on modern systems but true NES homebrew is somewhat more rare. It is still a demo and even though we only knocked out the first few levels and watched the video we feel confident in calling it to first rate NES platformer. Great mechanics, nice level design, a nice chiptune score and more await you in this.[/p]

    It should work on emulators (nestopia and nesDS mod tested), no word on compatibility with real hardware.

    This game looks really good and seems to have a metroid/Megaman feel to it.

    Jesus, this is amazing! The game looks even better than most commercial NES games I've played.

    Wow, that game looks like it could have been one of, if not the best on the NES.

    Just tried it out on NesDS. Pretty impressive, and challenging. No health refills till the end of each level.

    why did they call it "super" though?
    i find that unfitting whenever i see that on nes titles...

    It's probably a tongue-in-cheek reference to the overused naming convention in nes and snes games.
    There be humors in this game. [​IMG]

    Edit: I wouldn't be surprised if this gets ported to a retail game in the future. It's really, really good. Cavestoryesque, even.
    Catchy title, great game. [​IMG]

    Looks like the felix the cat nes game. Has the same punching hand thing. lol. Though the gameplay does look fun. [​IMG] At least people who make homebrew dont half ass the gameplay like they did back in the days. Hope this will get released just like battle kid on a cartridge. Looks like it deserves it when its done. [​IMG]

    The title reminds me of Super Turbo Turkey Puncher...

    That looks really really good. Great job, devs. I'm going to wait for a final build though before I play it. I hate playing release after release, so it's better for me to just wait.

    Looks awesome, the dev(s) should take contact with retrozone to make some cartridges once the project is finished, I'd gladly buy one.

    Oh yes! I just played through the demo - man, it really has commercial quality (or is that an insult? it's better than some commercial games!)

    I don't have a real NES.. so I want it on Wii VC or 3DS eShop [​IMG]

    Any game that features a bird that likes bacon is bound to become a success.

    Can someone please provide me with a list of other high quality 8-Bit homebrew games that are finished?

    I don't have a list, but you really should take a look at Batlle Kid: Fortress of peril, very good game on Nes, inspired of I wanna be the guy.

    So, why didn't we have games like this when we were kids?
    (granted, we did, but this looks fun as hell)
