8 BIT XMAS 2012
There's nothing more emblematic of the Holiday seasons than the cozy feeling you get waking to a fire and conifer brimming under with presents. That feeling of togetherness and warmth and holiday spirit shared while singing songs of the season with friends and family. That feeling of turning Santa's Biplane into a killing machine to use against three of your closest friends. Ah, such memories!
Move over, Red Baron, Santa is here, and he's packin'! With 8 BIT XMAS 2012, you can invite three of your best (or worst!) friends for a day of high-flying 4-player armed-to-the-teeth biplane-riding shoot-em-up fun!
Much more than a reproduction, this original game cartridge is built using all new parts. No donor carts were harmed in the making of this game.
If you just want to play the game, here is a
free ROM download
! Load it up on your PowerPak or favorite emulator and destroy your friends. You will be sad you are missing out on the amazing blinky lights that flash when your opponent gets hit!
For the personalized touch, you can order Custom Text for the on screen message and the message inside the printed card. Send one to each of your friends, or just a few to yourself!
This is only required if you ordered your cart with Custom Text. If you did not, your cart will come with a generic Happy Holidays message. The on screen message is 2 rows, 28 characters each row including spaces. Only capital letters, numbers, and simple punctuation will be used. See the demo ROM for an example of the custom text. The printed card will use the same message as the cart.
