NES vs. iPhone / iPod touch



Okay, I admit it. This post will be a little off-topic. Yesterday, I was randomly browsing the app store for free games. After downloading a few, I started playing Giant Moto, a little dirt bike, motocross obstacle racing game.


Does this remind anybody of some other, oooold game?



The game above is called Excitebike for the NES, ... 25 years old and another Nintendo classic! Both games have an almost identical gameplay with mostly the same game features, such as a "turbo", which will eventually overheat the engine if you overuse it or similar jumps and obstacles. 

So if you liked Excitebike and you are looking for a mobile version, that is close to the original, you should give Giant Moto by Tim Miller a try!

If you don't have an iPod touch or iPhone, but still own a NES, this is even cooler. Nintendo Entertainment System is pure nostalgia!














Click the image and download Giant Moto from iTunes.

  18. Haha even though the new systems have better graphics, I would prefer to see the old style graphics on the new devices. Retro ftw.
