Level Up [ VIDEO ]

If they wanted to be more accurate they could have started from the Atari 2600 instead of the Gameboy, but I just don’t think it would have been as much fun or expressive.

    That little guy is cool! I’d totally play a game like this where the graphics get better and better as you progress, and you eventually enter three dimensions.

    • Mason

      I had every bit as much invested with this little guys fight as I ever did with Ryu, Cloud, Fei, Link, Chrono, Vectorman, Mario and more.

        Want play this game too badly for regard to proper sentence structure.

      While it’s not quite the same, Upgrade Complete is a fun flash game that plays with the idea of art quality evolving as you play it. Link: http://armorgames.com/play/3955/upgrade-complete/

      There are two such games at armorgames.com. I think they’re called “Upgrade Complete,” one and two.

    His final form reminded me of Vectorman. Now I need to dig out my SMD for some good old side scroller shooter action.

  • Mecartistronico

    Actually I think the first few seconds refer to the Tamagotchi. Which of course came later than the Gameboy, but is indeed more “primitive”.

  • Wei Jie

    Could anyone tell me what are the systems shown in order?

  • Triaxx

    Tomagatchi, Gameboy, Sega Genesis, NES, SNES (Blah), Playstation.

      Actually, I think it’s going through stages of Handheld systems, not just “gaming”. So I’m thinking:

      Tomagatchi => Early GB => Late GB => GBC recolored GB => GBC => GBA => DS
