    Hello, I'd like to introduce you to Super Retro Maker.  It's like that really popular "Maker" game, but for all the other NES classics you loved as a kid.  All of the artists were hired from pixelation.org, so I thought I'd post a few updates on the game here.

Or just kick back and play hundreds of handcrafted retro stages all lovingly rendered in lo-def and accompanied by an authentic 8-bit NES soundtrack.   Featuring an expanding lineup of playable characters with unique skills and environments for limitless creativity and infinite replayability.  Unleash your inner Igarashi!
