1k Series - New NES Homebrews!

[size=140]NES homebrew developers Sly Dog Studios have produced a series of homebrew games for the NES that use just 1k of memory! A real throwback to the early days of home computing and systems like the Sinclair ZX81/Timex TS1000 with their very limited RAM.

In the words of the studio themselves:
"They are usually done as a challenge to a programmer, or sometimes they are made when we get a bit bored here at Sly Dog Studios and feel the need to take a break. They are small, but they are free! Great word, that!"[/size]



[size=140]So far the team has produced 6 different games that cover a wide range of different genres.

These titles comprise of Ambushed, Flappy Block, For Points, Meteor Guard, Pong: 1k2p and The Invasion.

All the games can be downloaded for free to use with emulators or real hardware via a flash cartridge![/size]

Very cool.  I wonder if they'll plan on releasing a cart with a collection of these games. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Not yet.  I've saved the site but I haven't had a chance to download the games yet.
