    RKA is a great game. I feel that both sequels diminish its greatness to such an extent as to quickly lose interest in the characters and world imagined. It's a shame.

    Zombies is definitely one. There can't be question it was developed around the Snes, and yes the side bar of course helped reusing 256 assets. Nice find! Not unlike Devil Crash MD.

    4 : 3 = 1,33 (the "full frame" or "Academy Ratio" in cinema talk) means that base is 1,33 times the height;
