Project Run - Retro Promo by Mantastic001 Project Run - Retro Promo by Mantastic001
Just a bit of fun for all of you old school gamers out there :D Cora and Rupert kicking it RETRO STYLE! Enjoy!

I had the idea of doing some promo art in the style of retro game display boxes. I did a Sega master system one too... :D I'm probably violating a bunch of copyrights here, but I think it's pretty clear that this is very much a tongue-in-cheek nod of respect and nostalgia.

'Project Run' Lewis Pugh, Tim Nightingale, 2011

Very interesting cover there, mate, especially since this is a nice parody of the classic NES game covers, that such games like Super Mario Bros., Ice Climber, Gumshoe, Duck Hunt and more have used in those good ol' days.

F*** yeah, those were special days....

I remember SMB, Rampage NES (nott he best game, but one first we got)... TMNT as a bday gift and so on..

TMNT was great fun. I had Rampage on the SMS too. Yeah, not the best but I have fun memories of that game.

Another I remember was Rgyar, nes version - got good memories of this cult classic... And I remember you had to beat the game in one setting - NO save, NO passwords.
Reply
:iconmantastic001:
Mantastic001 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011
hahaha! I remember the first game I had with a save/password function was Wonderboy 3 on SMS :D It seemed like such a luxury at the time!! (depite being like a ridiculous 16 digit password that you'd have to write down on paper haha)

Before that I'd just press pause and leave the console running for days. Nothing worse than getting home to discover your parents switched it off!! :(

The worst had been those Culture Brain games, but they had quirky fun for that, like Magic of Scheherazade

Yeah, that sucked alot
