skrillex-quest-2I grew up playing Nintendo games. NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Wii… Anything Nintendo-related gives me a warm fuzzy nostalgic feeling. This free game that you can play in any internet browser window does just that. And it’s actually quite well-made for a browser game, with its colorful seizure-inducing graphics. And it has a Skrillex soundtrack!

This simple game even has a story: A certain “golden NES cartridge” (I still have mine!) has gotten a piece of dust in it, and as a result the game within has become corrupted with glitches. You must take your sword and fight through a series of rooms in an effort to defeat the glitches inside the game.

The gameplay is simple yet fun, and I like how he incorporated the music. Hats off to the creator, Jason Oda, who also recently brought us the nostalgic but very short Perfect Strangers game (based on the opening song from the 80’s sitcom with Balki).

nintendo-historyDid you grow up playing Nintendo games? NES, SNES, Gameboy, Nintendo 64, Gamecube… Nostalgic memories of my childhood and now my children get to experience what I did, as I’ve kept all my old systems for them to enjoy (did you? do they still work?). This video posted by retrogameaddict1 is really well made! If you’re a Nintendo fan, you’ll enjoy this creation by a computer graphics designer about Nintendo’s history of the consoles and handhelds.  You can see the creator Anthony Veloso is a Nintendo fan like me. By the way, try your hand at guessing all the games between 1:54 and 2:00.

Do you like Mario? Or the original Super Mario Bros on NES? A fan of retro games? Then check out this cool video! I lol’ed at the special effects, and the ending is epic! Imagine being able to play this game! I’d buy it for sure!

I’m a sucker for anything Super Mario related, but this one takes the cake! Blumasters, you guys are my hero!
