Awesome Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers HD mock-up

Monday, March 17th, 2014 by

CnDRRHD_imsonHey, remember 1990? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kicked shell the big screen, Macauley Culkin was left Home Alone by his horrible parents, and Capcom followed up Duck Tales with Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. Okay, that last one felt forced, but I really had nothing for an opening.

So, now that you’re feeling nostalgic and whatnot, check out this awesome Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers mock-up by pixel artist extraordinaire Simon S. Anderson. Anderson, the creator of upcoming indie gem Owlboy, referred to this as a weekend project. It deserves a little more love than the 500+ retweets he got over there.

If you’re wondering what Gadget is doing in the picture above, then you’re not alone. Don’t forget. The whole premise of the game is to save Gadget from Fat Cat because, you know, damsels always be in distress, son.

More amazing than anything else, really, is that screen above has a whopping 48 colors. No sense in being modest, imson. We’d be cool if you wanted to go crazy with 64 colors, man. Live a little.

If pictures speak a thousand words, then here are my first six.

Could this lead to something more now that WayForward is done with Duck Tales? Anderson had a small part in that project as well, working with WayForward on a mock-up.

Let's be honest. This screen is cool and all, but far less exciting.

While Duck Tales was the first Capcom-Disney NES collaboration, Chip n’ Dale was probably the better of the two games. Keep your fingers crossed, people. Don’t forget there was a time before Metal Gear Solid where hiding behind a box was awesome, and that was the summer of 1990.

    That was a pretty solid game. I heard that all of Capcom’s adaptations of Disney IP were great — even The Little Mermaid, though obviously my 12-year-old self couldn’t bring himself to play that one, even though he had watched the movie with his sister some 30 times and knew it all by heart.

      Tale Spin was the weakest link, but they were really terrific. Darkwing Duck feels like a Mega Man game. If you haven’t had the pleasure, I highly suggest playing it.

      I did play The Little Mermaid. It’s pretty good and terrific graphically for its time.

        I’ll definitely put Darkwing Duck on my list of games to check out.

    The limited palette lends that first shot some vintage credibility.
