This started as a quick, dumb doodle and then turned into an excuse to refresh some 3D skills. I don’t remember if his name is Billy or Jimmy because even the file was named Bimmy.
I wanted to animate him but I made the mistake of modeling it already posed, which made rigging it too much effort for a small project. This was made completely inside Unity3D, using a library called Clayxels. –Nolen Tabner

This port of the ARCADE SMASH was picked by illustrator/game designer Ian Sundstrom. Who paraphrased this about it: “I never had the NES version as a kid but I played this all the time over and over. Even though I couldn’t get past the third level. The menu music is banging.”
I downloaded it on the 3DS this morning and it’s not as bad as people make it out to be. The graphics are good, the music is good, it plays good, and the sprites are kind of cute. Unlike the NES version, you get all your special moves right off the bat. Well, the spin kick and the hair-pull kick at least. It can usually be picked up for $10-$15 but there ain’t no shame in playing a rom or downloading in on the Nintendo E-Shop.
