This is a remake of the first game I ever made for #RemakeJam. The majority of the artwork was from the original (not too surprising as most of it is from Final Fantasy NES Sprite Sheets) and the music was replaced with remixes from Overclocked Remix. This was a nice little project I did, despite not having much time to work on it. Redoing the first level with a parallax scrolling background was really fun and I liked the challenge of remaking the first boss. If I had more time I probably would have planned it out better, and if I had an artist I would have loved to have seen this game with more original art, but I’m happy with what I achieved in around 4 days what originally took me nearly a year and a half, when I originally started this project back in January 2010.
