Betelgeuse, New NES Homebrew Shooter in Development

retrogamedev over at NintendoAge forums has shared some News about his new NES Homebrew game in development called betelgeuse. Retro describes the game as a “Zelda 1 Like Shooter”. From what we can see, the graphics resemble similarities to NES Zelda and the game has “Shoot’ em up” aspects thrown in. He also mentions that game engine is almost complete (sprite engine, collisions, animations and sprite flicker). However, there is still more to be done before the game is released. Check out the teaser video below showing some early gameplay. I must say it is looking lovely so far! ;)


Enjoy Life, be kind to others.
