Penguin Adventure Fan Remake! Also Nemesis and Castlevania!


I’ve blogged about penguin adventure before while I was hunting for games for my planned Retro Game Adventi stumbled across news that Kotai (Konami-Taito Fan) is working on a multi-player remake of Penguin Adventure to mark it’s 25th anniversary.  There is little information on their site, which lists a few of the other retro remakes they have made such as a multiplayer Castlevania remake, a multiplayer Bubble Bobble remake and a multiplayer Nemesis (Gradius in the US/UK) remake.

There are a few more videos on their/his YouTube Channel, but all the commentary is in Spanish, thanks to Google translate though:

Heading to 4 players online. The game will be available for download in a few days www.remakesonline.com

I can’t wait!

I’ll need to download the Nemesis remake I loved that game when I was a kid too and the idea of playing a multiplayer version of it is quite appealing… Here is a video of Nemesis online being played, it looks awesome!

Retro Gaming Advent: Day 1 Marathon Series

I’m going to try something over the next 25 days I’m going to post a free to play retro game you can download to enjoy over the “Festive Season” Today’s suggestion is the Marathon Series long before they moved onto to create Halo, Bungie made a series of Mac first person shooters under the moniker of Marathon. The source code for the engine is now open and you can download all three games for free for the Mac, Windows and Linux.

What are you waiting for?
