NES Paint Over: Touching Up The Classics

Have you ever wanted to touch up your favourite NES games? Perhaps make them brighter or make the graphics pop? Well, a talented digital artist by the name of Andrés Moncayo, has done it!

Andrés has digitally painted over some of the most iconic NES games like Duck Hunt, Contra, Double Dragon II: The Revenge and Zelda II – The Adventure of Link among other fan faves. Andrés has ensured that his versions keep the spirit of the original games.

We don’t know about you, but we absolutely reckon Andrés has nailed these touch ups! If you would like to see the rest of Andrés Moncayo’s NES paint overs, go and check them out here.

How the Gun on the Original Duck Hunt Worked

‘If you’ve ever played Duck Hunt or any of the other NES games that used the NES Zapper gun, you probably at one point or another wondered how the game actually knows where on the TV you are aiming the gun when you pulled the trigger. It turns out, the method for accomplishing this is incredibly simple, as is the gun itself.’

Super Russian Roulette: The Good, the Bad, and the Zapper

SRR_titleMove over Duck Hunt, there is gonna be a new shooting game in town! And forget Wii Sports to bring your party alive! For your next party, you should be playing Super Russian Roulette on your NES! Yep, you read that right – get your Zapper ready!

Before you rush off to your nearest gaming store, relax, Super Russian Roulette is being funded via Kickstarter and it has already blown past its goal of $20K! What is there to say about this game other than, you and up to two of your friends and the trash talking cowboy take turns passing the pistol, spinning the chamber (or not!), and drinking to your own demise (or not)! That Andrew Reitano is a genius.

If you are party gamer, gunslinger or an adrenaline junkie, you need to back Super Russian Roulette now! The game will be available in NTSC and PAL formats.

VR Duck Hunt

featuredJoseph Delgado created this adorable VR adaptation of Duck Hunt in just 24 hours for the 2016 Global Game Jam.

Duck Hunt Life VR delves into the backstory of Duck Hunter, where the duck hunter is actually collecting ducks for his cult-like ritual. Hunt some ducks, practice skeet shooting with the lads, and destroy your house. Try to collect enough ducks by Day 10 in order to complete your ritual, but don’t fail to collect the required number of ducks on a given day, or you’ll never do the ritual. Requires a Razer Hydra and Oculus Rift DK2.
