Some of you might not be all that familiar with the Nintendo 64 console, me on the other hand. I used to play a lot of N64 back in the days (“Doom 64”, “Turok”, “Mario 64” and “Zelda: Ocarina of time” to name a few). However, that was a very, very long time ago. In the matter of fact, it´s been almost three years since the last time I played any games at all on the N64 (I still own my good old N64 console though). Well, funny enough. Just the other day I was contacted by an indie developer (Marcus Horn) that´s working on an authentic looking N64 platformer for PC called “Macbat 64” (which would be Marcus Horn´s successor to “Kiwi 64“). And I was also informed that “Macbat 64” launched on Steam Greenlight a couple of days ago (the game will be released to Windows, MAC and Linux in the next couple of months).

I think it´s safe to say that “Macbat 64” has been “somewhat” influenced by “Donkey Kong 64” for sure.

And since I´m a huge fan of games such as “Super Mario 64“, “Banjo Kazooie” and “Donkey Kong 64” (“Macbat 64” has been inspired by most of these games, in one way or another). I decided to give the “Macbat 64” demo a try. And I’m glad that I made that decision, because the game is rather entertaining I have to say. Sure, “Macbat 64” might not be everyone’s cup of tea. On the other hand, if you don´t like platform/adventure puzzle games. Then I hardly doubt that you would like any similar games either, but if you´re a fan of the N64 golden era platform games. Then I´m quite sure that you´re going to love “Macbat 64” for sure, besides. Check out some of the cool features that “Macbat 64” has to offer:

– Authentic look and feel in a 4:3 environment
– Classic 3D platforming
– Over 10 micro worlds
– Different gameplay styles
– Unique and characteristic NPCs

“Mario Kart 64”, is that you?

And if you´re still not quite sure whether or not “Macbat 64” is your kind of game, then I would recommend you to download and try the free alpha demo (tons of mini-games and 3D platforming awaits you!). Other than that, you could always check out the really neat Steam Greenlight trailer down below. Personally, I hope that “Macbat 64” gets greenlit. As I would love to get the chance to play the full game on my PC in the near future.
