A Million Ways to Die in the West has a fun little promo game out now. The point is to get as many sheep as you can to Albert Stark in Old Stump. It starts off like Oregon Trail but has aspects of other retro games like Frogger and Donkey Kong (dang tumbleweed killed Bob). You can find it here. Whether you think the movie is going to be good or bad, go ahead and give the game a try. You really have nothing to lose – except a bunch of sheep.
Due out later this year, He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe will feature 27 levels, side-scrolling “brawler” gameplay, colorful visuals, and will be a universal app - meaning buy it once, play it on your iPod, iPad, iPhone, etc. It comes out later this fall.
Some modders are more than hobbyists. They’re heroes, such as this Michigan man who combined four systems into one. Unfortunately, he couldn’t pull off the impossible, as this contraption runs games via an emulator and not using their actual cartridge formats, but if he could manage that, he probably would’ve taken over the world already.
