Mega Cat Studios released a brand new 16-bit indie title this week called Little Medusa, but this one was created to be an old-school cartridge title. The game itself is a classic dungeon crawler where you play a kid version of the Greek villain who could turn objects to stone that looked at her, as you'll make your way through levels filled with enemies who become stone weapons for you.
But the twist to the game is that it's being sold as an NES, SNES and SEGA Genesis cartridge. The game is currently going for $50 on their website. You can read more about it here and watch the trailer for the game.
In Little Medusa you will have to take back Mount Olympus from the Titans, who have escaped their eternal prisons and transformed Artemiza, a young goddess, into a gorgon. Now she must petrify enemies, solve puzzles, and dodge traps in her battle to save the realms of the gods.
"Gorgon's can be cute too", says Zack Manko, Lead Cat at Mega Cat Studios. "A puzzle platformer to feed the Gorgon in all of us had to be created and given a 16 bit life. We did that."
Little Medusa features truly authentic retro puzzle action with charming pixel-art visuals. All three platforms have their own soundtrack and art, and there's also a hidden entire world on each version.
