In the quite successful low budget movie „The Wrestler“ featuring Mickey Rourke a surprising scene recently caught my attention. You can view the scene here.
The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), a legacy 8 bit video game controller system has its great moments. However, the real interesting aspect is more the fact, that the actors are playing a game, which reminded me on similar titles. A quick research with help from Google justified my thoughts.
The game was never published, as it was built specifically for the movie. I found an interesting article giving some background on that. I believe, that the game itself was built on a state of the art platform but with an intended 80’s look and feel.
Hence, people like me still owning an NES will unfortunately never get the chance to play it…
