Super Smash Land, a Super Smash Bros. game remade to the constraints of the GameBoy (but not, literally, for it) has a playable demo now available for free on the PC.
Designer/programmer Dan Fornace says the project's been underway since September, and says in addition to Mario, Kirby, Link and Pikachu, the game will feature two secret characters when released. Brendan Becker, the game's sound engineer, says when the finished game is released, its chiptune soundtrack will also be made available for free. "I'm paying attention to detail where it counts and making sure the music and sounds are independently 100 percent possible using GameBoy hardware," Becker said. "Everything is done by hand from scratch, even the coin and fireball noises that sound pretty close to the originals.
