Dark Void Zero

Dark Void: A lost project by Capcom, circa 1987. This game was meant to redefine platforming as a genre, but the game was lost in the excitement of the rumors of the SNES.
A magnet accident ruined all the projects in hiatus at Capcom, luckily one copy of the prototype was given to the winner of a contest.
From that prototype was built the 8-bit DSi ware game Dark Void Zero.
*The first thing you do when you boot up the game from the DSi menu is blow into the mic and "Blow the dust off of the cartridge" that should clue you in to the nature of the game*
By today's standards the graphics are not great, but seeing as this is an 8-bit game the graphics are good, the only real difference between now and the NES graphics is the lack of flicker and other graphical glitches.

The sound is the same story, cutting edge for then and bad for now.

You control Rusty, the first human born in the void, the gameplay involves jumping, shooting, collecting, more shooting, and flying a jet-pack.

This game is hard, almost as hard as Contra in some places.

My Recommendation: If you own a DSi, enjoy 8-bit games and want to spend $5.00 on a game, then go for it.

Spoiler tags removed, by me on pic and Dudebro on the videos.

Re: Dark Void Zero

Good review, I never heard of this and you told me all I need to know. I took out the spoiler tags so your videos would display. I figure if they can't just click play most people won't bother. I'll change it back if you want.

Thanks for the compliment.
It's good on the tags, thanks for the fix.

Re: Dark Void Zero

I'm not sure why the spoilers were messing it up. I'm sure one of these other guys will tell me and I'll feel stupid.

I think the spoilers need to be on the line above and the line below on videos.
It doesn't matter, they don't need to be their anyway.

Re: Dark Void Zero

Cheetahmen II was never officially released.

Dark Void Zero was never actually created for the NES. It's just a gimmick story made up to sell games.

Re: Dark Void Zero

Cheetahmen II is cool though. The carts exist, and were produced for the NES back in the day, they were just never sold.
