With some ingenuitive game hackers, the Nintendo 8-Bit beloved by an entire generation of gamers can receive a new slew of games with games like God of War thanks to hacks modding abilities.\
Rygar by DarkForge Games is a hack of Rygar, which can be seen as an influence on Sony’s fallen god game. The changes are significant including sprites, text, and levels getting a flair for the style Kratos enjoys.
The God of War for Nintendo Entertainment System is quite hard, so it may not be a walk in the park. If you decide to take on the challenge laid out before Kratos, prepare for a fight and plenty of cheap hits, annoying enemies and starting over again and again.
As you can see in the pictures, the “feel” of God of War is recreated well on the NES. The game takes advantage of RPGs like Rygar to recreate the PlayStation classic. Adjusting the graphics made conversion easier for this amazing game. That being said, playing this game will give you plenty of back story through conversations with non-player characters you meet during play time. You don’t have to worry about jarring gameplay because it hews closely to the original
Anyone expecting a full on recreation of the Playstation 2 title should know better, this is a Nintendo Entertainment System game at its heart- with all of the limitations that brings. We will cover the port of the second God of War to the NES through another game soon.
