The headline is not misleading in any way. A modder by the name of “DooMero” has used the Doom engine, specifically the GZDooM hack, to recreate Donkey Kong Country in a 2.5D side scrolling platformer. The results are quite interesting to say the least.

Okay, how many of you reading this knew that Double Dragon had hit the Atari 2600 of all consoles? Many people still don’t know that Activision has actually attempted this feat, and the developer has accomplished it in 1989- years after the 2600 was already superceded by two new generations of Atari hardware! Check the video […]
Super Thunder Blade Pits You Against Guerilla Warfare Enemies on Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989
Similar in style to Space Harrier II, another Sega Genesis launch title, Super Thunder Blade is an arcade port and also a psuedo 3D into the screen scrolling. Enemies, and obstacles, appear in the distance and scroll towards your helicopter- all the while shooting and doing everything they can to bring you down, quickly. Shooter […]
We originally covered a title that is very similar to this new port, Batman 1986 Version, and now that 28 year old game is being ported to the MSX2 gaming computer. The previous version we covered was a hack of another game, Head Over Heels, but this MSX2 port is just that, a port of […]
Tekken is one of those games that helped push more Playstation sales during the 32-Bit wars than any other game during that time. Sony’s first console was home to three Tekken games and fans ate each of them up as fast as they were released. Now, imagine how Namco’s flagship fighting game would look on […]
Angry Birds is one of those games that has transcended gaming and brought in non-gamers much like Myst did in the mid 90’s. What started out as a mobile game, that was as casual as you probably could get, has been ported to home consoles including the Sega Genesis.
We have seen Doom ported to all kinds of platforms over the years, everything from the ZX Spectrum and Commodore VIC-20 to digital cameras and the Microsoft Zune. Now, Youtuber “Aussie50″ has added an Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) to the list.
Remember Pokemon Puzzle League, Tetris Attack, etc from days gone by (circa late 1990’s)? I was dreadfully hooked on those games for a long time and enjoyed playing each new iteration as I could get it. Rikku2000, of http://u-ac.net, obviously was a fan too as he has released V1.1 of his game, TailTale for the […]
When I first started playing Cave Story on PSP, I didn’t “get it”, I thought it was rediculous- pushing DOWN to enter doors, really? Then after I got over my problems with a few design choices like that, I became the recipient of what I have come to call my latest digital addiction. Playing into […]
This post was originally published on Gaming on Nintendo on September 22nd, 2013: When gaming was still coming out of the ether and trying to figure out what it is really all about (this is after an initial failure in the mid 1980’s). Gaming was unique back then, we didn’t have billion dollar sellers, we […]
