Sorry but I didn’t spend €370 on my Wii U to play 8 bit games. Sure they’re alright a few indie games here and there but it’s all Wii U is getting from external developers. I’d rather have the new COD than this. These retro games are hardly putting the Wii U through its paces.
Sorry that should be 16 bit for this game but there’s plenty of examples of 8 bit indie games also.
Don’t complain. At least the 8 bit and 16 bit style games are still being made. People should appreciate the fact that any company is still paying homage to the classic days of gaming. I for one am happy about it. My only complaint is that they’re all digital instead of physical, retail releases.
I’m still wondering where the AVGN game is? I thought it was going to become available on Wii U? But I guess it wasn’t popular enough or something.
I love 2D side scrolling platformers so I’ll be picking this up. The indie scene is really coming on
You no longer have to for a large corporation to produce games – And I think that’s absolutely brilliant. Now anyone with a little tech-knowledge can build businesses for themselves, and work freely without publishers or supervisors.
With titles like this, A Hat in Time, and an array of others, you’re absolutely spot on.
*have to work for
Independency on game development allows more time and creative freedom and far less stress and corporate string pulling bullshit.
Cool. Now I don’t have to buy it on the 3DS. :)
Looks like an iOS/Wii game.. Sound design is piss poor as well. This is Nintendo’s so-called next-gen console?
Are you dumber than chicken pie? Just because some Indie developer made a poor looking title, it doesn’t mean anything when it comes to the Wii U’s power. “This is Nintendo’s so-called next-gen console?” Yes, it is. Let me smack your face in the direction towards Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros. U, Pikmin 3, DKC:TF, Mario 3D World, and the Zelda Wii U trailer. That way you will have a better look at them.
Chickens can’t type neither can Chicken Pie. I expected it to look somewhat decent with the little hype surrounding it but I guess I was wrong. DKC:TF & Pikmin 3 could have been on the Wii. Maybe even Smash & 3D World. MK8 is the MKWii version with upside-down tracks and updated graphics & the latest Zelda U gameplay has received a massive downgrade in draw distance & from what I saw there was stuttering in that gameplay presentation. Cel-Shaded games always look good.
Its funny you say could of been a wii game when most of the “new” games for ps4 and xb1 are also just old games on 360 and ps3 ah ha
AC Unity, The Witcher 3, InFamous: SS, Sunset Overdrive, Forza 5, Ryse, Driveclub, The Order 1886, No Mans Sky, Warframe, The Crew, Dying Light, Planetside 2, Transistor, EA UFC, Thief, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Dead Rising 3 & more..
Whats a draw distance
It’s an 16-bit indie styled sprite platformer you ASS!
Troll harder, Fart!
Idk why Capcom didn’t develop this cuz this look like a Mega Man game. Guys, I know it’s different and all, but the fact that it’s 2D AND retro, I see similarities, idk. When I look at Shantae, I ALMOST see some blue in there from mega man, or almost see mega man himself.
actually the game its more like a metroidvania, i already played the 3ds version and it’s brilliant.
Looks like Sonic has a child from Aladins girlfriend Jazmin…
