Stranger Things 3: The Video Game

The game of the month isn’t actually out yet, but this is a great example of what you can achieve with pixel art graphics.

It’s a great idea that the video game for this 80s themed horror show should be a retro 80s style video game. I’m really excited to get my hands on this one.

Thanks to Darsh for bringing my attention to this one on his blog. Read his fantastic article on his site here:

Metal Slug: Game of the Month

Perhaps one of the greatest 2D games of all time, well, in my opinion anyway. I spent hours on this game when I was younger. It has great cartoony graphics, fun settings and exciting gameplay.

A great thing about this game was the ability to destroy parts of the background.

You can pickup a range of weapons including machine guns, rocket launchers, flame throwers and more.

At certain points in the game, you can jump into the tanks and move through the platforms destroying bad guys and helicopters or enemy tanks.
