If you’ve ever played the Friday the 13th NES game, there is a good chance you were disappointed. That goes especially for fans of the film franchise. Dr. Terror’s Hacktivision has imagined what a truly legit Friday the 13th NES game could have entailed (of course, you have to take into account that some of what is depicted comes from films that were not yet around during the Nintendo Entertainment System’s heyday).
As Dr. Terror explains:
Hacktivision is a project that creates fake video game trailers from the 8-Bit graphic imagery of Frank Browning, the soundscape and glitch renditions of Sean O’Connor and the gameplay and editing stylings of Dr. TERROR.
What they’ve come up with for this Friday the 13th is truly something special for fans of the movies. It imagines an 8-bit game in which you can play through each installment in the franchise, complete with a real film-inspired soundtrack. Better yet, it incorporates elements of Zelda, Castlevania and Duck Hunt, among other classic titles.
Somebody really needs to make this exist.
Dr. Terror has even one so far as to create a thorough playing manual for the game, which you can see here.
