It by no means ceases to amaze us how far modern-day builders can push retro . From elaborate tech demos to fully-fledged ports, programmers are keen to push classic techniques to absolutely the restrict, forcing them to provide visuals that, again within the day, would have been unthinkable.
Take the work of French developer @upsilandre, who has managed to create a clone of Konami’s Axelay on the NES, full with the cool ‘barrel’ perspective on the horizon.
The developer is eager to emphasize that this is not a ‘recreation’ as such, but it surely does play on actual (you may even obtain the ROM and take a look at it your self, by way of both an emulator or a flash cart) and it runs at 60fps. The truth is, it appears as visually spectacular as Axelay itself, which runs on extra highly effective , lest we neglect.
