  1. who cares anymore.

    • Apparently Aquin and two other people so far, not counting the fairly active fanbase the game has.

      • like when the original was made it was a really interesting demonstration of how the differences in verb sets between even really similar games radically change how different characters move through the world. and every sequel is just that except sometimes it looks like a super nintendo game? and there’s one new character who makes much less sense there than the ones in the initial lineup. i dunno, i feel like everything neat about this idea they got off the bat, and all of their subsequent attempts to milk it just involved tacking on stuff that fits less and less.

        • I suppose you have a point. I guess it’s kind of like the post-3 NES Megaman games, almost.

          Although it’s still fun regardless and obviously people are still playing it, so I’m not sure why you were extrapolating your apathy at a slightly-tarnished concept to everyone in general at first when you actually had some interesting commentary there.

          • I kind of agree that the first release of Crossover nailed it pretty much completely.

            Still, there are some interesting (read: fanatical) additions that probably don’t work in the end but caught my attention (eg. the Super Demon tileset).

        • They keep making new SMC releases to drive traffic and $$$ to support their original game, Super Retro Squad. Which is a pretty canny move, if you’re into that sort of thing.

          Personally I find most console-nostalgia projects a little grim. At least find something new to say with ’90s trash if you’re going to play in it.

  2. This version might be the first remake to feature the levels from the obscure Hudson port of Super Mario to the PC-88.

  3. Good going ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  4. Hadn’t ever seen this before.

  5. Wow, he even recreated the sprite shimmer on the Sharp X1 graphic set. That’s true dedication.

  6. An established game gets some additional content? NOT ON MY WATCH.

    Lighten up, dearies.
