Following the usual end-of-the-year articles or videos showcasing the best of 2022, Game Peters A YouTube channel has released a very informative video about the best NES homebrew games of 2022.
This video is a curated list of the top 10 NES games, a source for nearly 100 games, demos, and concept releases for the Nintendo Entertainment System released in 2022! Apart from the first place, there is no particular order in the list, which of course follows the personal taste of the author.
The video does a great job of giving reasons why a game makes the list, and looking at each of them, you can see that the NES display is very dynamic, and in its case, size and quality go hand-in-hand throughout. Last year.
There are also some honorable mentions like get together, caught my attention. It’s a puzzle-platform game, but the way you solve the puzzles is very unique. You play as a scientist who has developed an immortality syrup, but during an attack, a bomb is thrown into the lab and the drug spreads throughout the scientist’s body, blowing it to pieces. Your job in this game is to manipulate the pieces of your body to flip the switch and get out of each area. Each body part has different routes that you can put together in any order. For example, your head can roll, your legs can bounce, and even your butt can spin and fly.
Great game, according to the author Alva’s Awakening, A Metroidvania style game with 400 unique rooms to solve puzzles and progress through the game. The graphics and soundtrack are amazing, and I agree that this game is one of the best NES games I’ve ever seen! Although the game is not original and has been available on multiple platforms (including Steam) for the past 5 years, the NES version was built from the ground up and fully developed in 2022.
