My previous posts from today spoke about Senile Team’s superb Beats of Rage fan game and the OpenBoR creation kit that the fan community made shortly after. Rather than prattle on about how to make games using the engine, I thought it would be better to show you some of the fine games homebrew users have created using it.
First up is X-Men, an incredible re-imagining of Konami’s four-player arcade release by VicViper & KungPow. The key difference here is that is uses slick sprites ripped from Capcom’s Marvel VS Capcom 2, meaning they look chunky and authentic.
Also, check out that intro sequence! It’s the same opening movie from the classic 90’s X-Men series. Kudos to the developers for that one!
