NES Homebrew from Fista Productions

Nintendo Entertainment System

Earlier today I received an email from Steve of Fista Productions, he was letting me know that two new homebrews were available for NESWORLD's Homebrew section. Unfortunately the section is way out of date and while I do want to update it, it will take a lot of time.

However I just had to make a news post about these two games, not only do they look great and the story is hilarious, but the effort that went into everything around the games is just awesome. Both of the two games have their own TV commercial.

Carpet Shark

Based on the 2013 Fista Productions short film.

"A shark's soul is trapped inside an 8x10 area rug. It's General Major Cadaver Scab's duty to keep the shark tame. Can he? CAN ANYONE?"

Play as the Carpet Shark. Eat as many victims as you can before the timer and your health run out. After each level, fight one of the 4 bosses (our characters from the movie). Try to eat the bosses weapons to fire back at them. Can you beat all 4 levels?

The game is available for download here.

Plummet Challenge

Fista productions is back with a brand new game for your retro entertainment system. You are the Plummeteer. Plunge for prizes and points before hitting obstacles or landing face first into the ground. Gold gems are worth 10 points and the special colored gems are worth 100. There are 75 exciting levels in the main game, while the marathon mode has 150 levels for a longer experience. Everyone is able to complete the game, but just how good are you at it?

The game is available for download here.

Is this my reason to get HBO max?
Nov 15, 2021 - Posted by Martin

A movie called 8-bit Christmas is headed to HBOmax and I bet this is one to watch. No I'm not paid to write this but just stumbled upon the trailer on facebook and well... I HAVE TO WATCH THIS ONE! :D

How far would you go to score the ultimate gift? Watch the new holiday classic #8BitXmas on November 24 with the whole family, streaming exclusively on HBO Max. From New Line Cinema and HBO Max comes “8-Bit Christmas,” a humorous and heartfelt look back at the adventures of childhood.

Set in suburban Chicago in the late 1980s, the story centers on ten-year-old Jake Doyle’s herculean quest to get the latest and greatest video game system for Christmas.
