CineFix’s latest edition of 8-bit cinema takes on Guardians of the Galaxy. The animated short film retells the movie via old-school 8-bit game tech. While the title is 8-Bit, the graphics look more like the 16-bit generation of video games to me (pushes glasses up like a nerd).
8-bit Cinema “gamifies” your favorite Hollywood Blockbusters into 80’s arcade and NES inspired action! Today we present Guardians of the Galaxy in the form of an old-school video game. Don’t you wish Guardians of the Galaxy was popular back in the early 90s, so that YOU could have played this game as a kid? Us too! 8 Bit a.k.a. the third generation of gaming started in 1983 with the Japanese release of the Nintendo Family Computer and Sega. Can you guess what games inspired our 8-bit version of Guardians of the Galaxy?
This adorable animated short retells the action set pieces from the film showcasing various side-scrolling levels. The short also features 8-bit versions of the movie’s awesome 80’s soundtrack. Watch the 8-Bit Guardians Of The Galaxy animated short film embedded after the jump.
