My stamina has certainly been put to the test this week having some pretty hefty I.T. infrastructure issues as work resulted in another eye drooping 24 hour shift followed by a few hours of sleep followed up with another 4:30am drive back into work and non stop for the next 18 hours. Sleep has been like that elusive powerup that’s just out of reach on that rock hard schmup you’ve been trying to finish.
So, in need of a little pick me up during lunch break and without having to use too many already exhausted brain cells, it’s the vintage video games I turn to and a particular remake that simplifies a bunch of them even more.
The Retro Remakes Mini Arcade by Minionsoft is a collection of eight vintage games, simplified into little 32×32 pixellated renditions of the classics we all know and love. Enter the arcade and you can step up to play Space Invaders, Asteroids, Pacman, Scramble, Frogger, Centipede, Arkanoid and Pole Position.
Here’s a scaled up screenshot so you can see all the little details. Each game has the original sounds samples and little touches to each game which I’m sure will make most of you retro gamers smile . Brilliant stuff indeed from Minionsoft.
