Background

This is my second remake from Active Enterprises' Action 52 NES compliation as part of the Action 52 Owns project.

The original NES alfredo was a basic action side scroller so I decided to enhance it into a sprawling metroidvania style exploration game. I however tried to keep a lot of the spirit alive with particular attention to the art style of the NES version. I also took inspiration from the Genesis version of Action 52 for the boss sequences.

If you play it through you'll see I also decided to take the story into very weird territory but overall I think this is a fitting tribute to the original.
