Ever wish your favorite NES games from the 80s and 90s were in 3D? No, not like some cheesy remake, but with all their beautiful 8-bit pixels intact?
You should definitely try 3DNES, a new emulator for Windows. It’s built in Unity and works like other emulators that let you play classic NES games – but it also lets you change the perspective from which you view levels and characters.
Depending on the game you choose, the effect can vary from glitchy to beautiful. It works especially well in side-scrolling titles with discreet objects in the game environment, like Super Mario. Contra, on the other hand, doesn’t look as great, because the levels are usually fully illustrated and there’s not much space in between for the 3D effect to fill.
