GameBoy Gods

Bitmap Brothers classics coming to GBA

Source - press release

In a move which is sure to bring a smile to the faces of many of our older readers, handheld specialists Crawfish are teaming up with veteran British developers The Bitmap Brothers to bring some of their classic Amiga titles to the GameBoy Advance. Gods, Magic Pockets and the ever popular Chaos Engine will all be getting a 21st century make-over, with "new features, new maps and enhanced gameplay" being promised to buttress the retro gaming charm of the originals. The graphics will also be tweaked to make the most of Nintendo's multi-million selling portable gaming system, while Chaos Engine will use the link cable to support up to four players, with brand new multiplayer maps being added to fully exploit this feature "We're absolutely thrilled to have the chance to turn these classics into exciting and original games for the GBA", Crawfish development director Mike Merren is reported as saying. "Like crafting a remake of a celebrated movie, our aim from the start has been to capture everything that's special about the original games and then take them that little bit further, making them stand out as great games in their own right." Hopefully this batch of remakes will be more Invasion Of The Body Snatchers than Psycho. Related Feature - Crawfish Advance
