Micro Mages user review
Backed this on Kickstarter for the physical copy, ended up also getting the steam version and other goodies for free when it came out too!
Tight controls, good platforming, starts lenient but difficulty ramps up nicely later. If this fell through a time portal to 1985, I think it would become a classic comparable to some of the best platformers on the NES.
Bought the game just to see if you really can play it on a NES...
Just watch the YT video below; then buy their game like I did. Support these amazing developers who did an amazing job.
Great game. An amazing feat to develop this under the restrictions of the NES in the modern age. Play the NES rom included in the local files. Don't bother with the Windows version as it has random spikes of input lag with modern wireless controllers. (only tested PS4 DualShock4)
Bought it to play on original hardware with an Everdrive. Not disappointed at all. Very fun game!
This is a pure Gem !! It would have been hands down the best NES game of our childhood.
I did not have the opportunity to play it in the multiplayer mode yet, but the single player is very good.
NES chibi wizards, and indie devs what more do you need?
This game is fantastic. I wish it was released back in the 80's so I could have played it as a kid. Difficulty isn't too hard, but it is challenging. It avoids a lot of the BS that earlier Nintendo games had to artificially inflate the difficulty and play time. I mean, its 2019 now so they don't need to be licensed by Nintendo, lol. Best part of all? IT WORKS ON MY EVERDRIVE N8! I can play this baby on the original hardware and it plays like a dream. Controls are great, platforming is great. ( i get confused sometimes because it doesn't have the screen wrap around like kid icarus or bubble bobble had.) But that doesn't matter. Steam wouldn't let me post a review because I didn't have over 5 minutes of play time ON STEAM. I played it a lot more on my Everdrive. If you are old school, or love old school games, this is your game.
Exactly what you would expect from a NES title. Horrible.
Sorry, hate to be a Debbie Downer for all the people who act like this is the best game since sliced bread. But there needs to be some REAL reviews, instead of all the social media viral butt-kissing that is going on here. I admit... it is cool to hear the developer's story, but isn't it really just a basic explanation on how game data is stored? If you break it down to the bread n butter, it is just a basic NESque platformer, but 30 years after the fact. So if it wants to take on the replay factor of the most popular NES games, it has some big shoes to fill and needs to be able to do some tall a$$ dropkicks. Unfortunately, MicroMages does none. This game is mmmeh. I know it isn't realistic to expect that the game will be as cool as Metroid (unless you beLIEve the comments below), but if you listen to the reviews on social media, people soundin like this game is BETTER than the games made during the NES era. Ummm... wtf? Ridiculous. Metroid aside, what about Kid Icarus, Bubble Bobble, Wizards & Warriors... freakin Ice Climber... this game doesn't even hold up to Ice Climber, and those are just the basic platformers that didn't go hard on the capabilities of the NES. Remember Mega Man, Ducktales, Kirby, Ghost n Goblins, Castlevanie, Battletoads, TMNT, Goonies 2, Rygar, Ninja Gaiden, Karnov..... the list goes on and on and on. Sorry, but this game entertained me for about 10 minutes. Hmmm... I think maybe I was hyped up on the viral juice or else I might not have had high expectations. But all the fluffin and butterin that I see in the comments section... smfh. This game isn't worth $11. I would say $5, tops.
