…It’s TGI Friday: Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead?

Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead

Eric Ruth’s Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead is the game that Valve would have made for the Nintendo Entertainment System if they had been around back in 1986.

The game is identical to Left 4 Dead… if L4D were put through a time machine and returned after having gone through the full 8-bit treatment, including appearance and sound. Just because it looks low budget doesn’t mean that Eric skimped on features though, since you can play either by yourself or with a friend in two-player co-op mode, and all four of the original survivors, two tiers of weapons and four of the original game campaigns are included.

Unfortunately it’s Windows only at the moment, but if you’re looking for something to do over the weekend, then take a trip down memory lane with Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead.

…Super Mario Kart can be played in JavaScript?

Super Mario Kart

It might not be pretty, and you may only be able to race around the track forever against your two CPU opponents with no weapons or anything else to break up the monotony, but Nihilogic Labs has managed to create a working JavaScript demo of Super Mario Kart that includes three playable drivers and two different maps.

At this point, it’s just an experiment, and basically exists as a technical demo/proof-of-concept, but hey, it works, so go check it out.
