Micro Mages

Micro Mages is a new platform game for the NES, play solo or with up to 4 players simultaneously. Fight to get the best score or cooperate to overcome challenging levels.

Micro Mages NES version

Micro Mages is an homage to NES-era platformers. Being a homebrew NES game itself, it was made completely from scratch. We carefully distilled the spirit of the best games in the system's library, all the while drawing inspiration from the modern and putting our own spin on things, creating an experience like no other on the NES. We have been working meticulously for the past two years to bring you an experience on-par with commercial releases of the era. Micro Mages is in no way affiliated, endorsed or licensed by Nintendo.
