Yesterday, they announced Pac-Man 99 and I’m excited about it. I really enjoy these remixes of old, simple, iconic titles and I find they’re perfect for the Battle Royale treatment because most gamers have already played them before. It’s easy to just jump right into them with minimal introduction.
I usually play them for a month or two and drop them, but they’re fun for a few dozen attempts before the idea gets stale. I just wish that Mario 35 wasn’t a time limited thing because I think it was probably the best of all these concepts.
Here’s hoping that someday, we get one of these for Super Mario Bros 3 - I think that game’s short level focus and incredible variety would present some highly interesting challenges with this type of game.
What other retro-inspired games do you think would be appropriate for the BR treatment?
