What would metroid look like if it was ever ported to the c64?
I mainly used the NES metroid as a reference.
All tiles are 4x8 big, with a bit more restrictions than the normal multicolor bitmap mode, so technical it should also work on the real thing.

 Ahh, I see one of my all-time favorite pieces is on Pixel Joint. This has been a major inspiration to me. Thank you vierbit!

This remains one of my favorite PJ items to date. Yes, partially due to the NES Metroid nostalgia oozing from it. It was such a cool idea to even make it.

I wanna make this game so bad...............AAAAAAAARRRRGH!!!

Gizmonicgamer (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/27/2009 20:04

I wish that someone would make this as an actual game, I really, really do.(Except instead of being the original metroid it was more of a zero mission/super metroid type deal).

I actually messed around with hires mode. But I rather have a lower resolution with more colors,
than hires with only 2. I know its possible to mix hires and lowres tiles, but that doesn´t looked right to me.
Of course thinks like the status bar could be done in hires.

very good usage of the c64 character mode. agree that background and sprites look even better than the nes original. i wonder why you do not use hires for darker chars...

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 3/25/2009 08:53

Wow, this is so great. Use of the palette is so good. Top marks, easy.

Pure awesomeness! C64 ftw! I would have loved to play this on my C64!

Very well done!

This is quite amazing! I just recently played Metriod again, and this is very very well done!

HMC (Level 7 General Manager) @ 11/14/2008 15:14
This is superb. I'd say it's better than the original.

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 11/14/2008 10:59

That does look excessively leet.

I very much like the colouring.

Christoballs (Level 4 Murderer) @ 11/13/2008 13:50
This is amazing... A cross between three Metroids AND in C64 restrictions!

TOO MUCH OFFICIAL! It looks like a real metroid conversion.
Very well done!

Haha, brilliant! This is seriously impressive.

Wow, gorgeous. It's always quite interesting to see what famous games would look like on different systems.

Ahhh I've always loved these mockups since I saw 'em on... Pixelation I think? :)
