This'll pummel your senses
As you may have read earlier today, it's the 25th anniversary of the Game Boy in North America, another welcome landmark for the venerable portable console. This dramatic three-minute tale is perfect for the occasion, as a result.
The video, entitled "Pulse Fighter", is the work of m7kenji (visuals) and chiptune artist Toriena. A plucky hero is trying to rid the world of evil, and when overpowered after a brave fight uses an Amazon-like service — Kumazon — to order a lot of speakers. The solution for saving the world also involves a Game boy.
It's bonkers and a real treat for the eyes and ears. Check it out below, though those with epilepsy should be warned that it has some flashing images.
