[Community Showcase] Kid Icarus Returns In 16-bit!
After finding the awesome Mega Man clone, Rokko-chan. Flip Industries has turned up something quite awesome, Super Kid Icarus. You can now play Kid Icarus in 16-bit inside your web browser! You get the same awesome gameplay from the old NES cart. There is great orchestral music playing the main theme of the game. You can enable cheats to make the experience easier. It also has the ability to save and continue your game. Also, no more plain drab black backgrounds! Like Rokko-chan, make sure you are using Joy2Key and a gamepad.
I didn’t even mention the best part. It has a full-blown level editor! However, the level editor is not unlocked yet. So please visit the website so we can unlock it! Below, here is a video of the level editor in action. Hurry up and play it before Nintendo probably takes it down!
I'm not asking you to be a better writer. I'm asking you not to post links that lead to illegal products. or you could continue to make legislators think things like SOPA are a good idea.
Last thing I want is to have people fight. I want to bring them together with my work. Please let's all settle down.
I post news, reviews, previews, and pretty much whatever catches my fancy. Kid Icarus was from my childhood thus why I posted this. Check out my other Community Showcases if you want integrity. Thanks for the comment though, it will make me a better writer.
Please use periods. I couldn't tell what the heck you were talking about till I started adding a period between every two words.
And no, I don't agree with you. I think gonzoneil has a valid argument. People spend way too much time trying to re-create old games right down to the same sprites. All that time and effort being used to make something that's already made could be better spent creating and crafting something new and unique. There's nothing wrong with trying to recreate an old game, but the number of recreations of classic games to new innovative games is pretty darn low.
Think about how awesome it would've been if those people who made that Sonic 2 HD level used their tech and knowledge to make an entirely NEW platforming game with amazing details and control instead of re-making an already established and copyrighted character's game.
Again, not saying it should be stopped altogether, but that maybe we should try and focus on newer stuff more.
While this looks great and all, I have a bad feeling that it's going to taint the view of Nintendo's own efforts when they release Kid Icarus 3D. By comparison this looks better and has more features, while Nintendo's is just the same game with a 3D effect. I fear people comparing the two and then complaining that Nintendo should've made their game look and play more like this and decry that Nintendo has "abandoned" hardcore gamers and other such nonsense.
>illegal emulated hacks illegal no emulated no hacks no so by your point of view sites like newgrounds should be shut down here retarded lets break this down for you someone made this programed scripts sprites and all pretty sure everyone will agree with me gonzoneil you're a fucking moron
the Community Showcase has been full of these illegal emulated hacks. I would like to see something with more integrity get featured.
Man, how do you find this stuff cause it's awsomme
so far so fun :3
That looks so awesome!
I might check this out. Perhaps I might review it like I did with Rokko Chan. But I suck at Kid Icarus...
Hmm... Sounds sexy.
This is JonLeung of VGMaps.com: The Video Game Atlas.
I would like to let you know that the game is not an original creation of Flip Industries, and was actually envisioned by me as an April Fool’s joke for my own web site back in 2007. You can see for yourself here: http://www.vgmaps.com/NewsArchives/April2007/index.htm#SuperKidIcarus
You see, between April 2005 and 2009, VGMaps.com has had maps of “fake” games as an April Fool’s joke to be selected as the “Maps Of The Month”. Among these are possible maps for The Legend Of Zelda: Oracle Of Hours (based on the cancelled GBC game, http://vgmaps.com/NewsArchives/April2008/index.htm#LegendOfZeldaOracleOf... ) as well as Metroid Dread (the rumoured 2D Metroid game, http://vgmaps.com/NewsArchives/April2009/index.htm#MetroidDread ).
Now, regarding Super Kid Icarus, the maps themselves are a strict tile replacement of the original game’s maps, so I’m certainly not as angry as with the multitude of people who have wanted to use my other map projects for their games without asking. However, there was still some effort involved, and considering the publicity that Flip Industries’ Super Kid Icarus is getting, without having ever mentioned VGMaps.com as far as I can tell, I can’t help but speak up that credit should be given where it’s due.
thanks now something else to play
