As it’s retro week, and Bit Boy!! is a new “retro” game, it seemed like fate that it was out yesterday on Wii Ware. So I bought it.
Now I sort of wish I hadn’t. The presentation is great, and the way the game starts off as a 4-bit title then works up a game generation every few levels is clever, but ultimately it makes no difference to anything other than the graphics. Which leaves the game for what it is – a poor Pac-man clone with a couple of extras, and a very easy one at that – I soon completed it. The high score “Warp” mode isn’t really worth playing either. Disappointing.
