Play The Great Gastby 8-Bit NES Game Online
Classic literature takes the internet gaming scene by storm!
Witness the tragic tale of the horrors of the American Dream, now in 8-Bit.
Supposedly, some guy found a cart entitled "Doki Doki Toshokan: Gatsby no Monogatari." It appears to be an unrleased prototype, and, thankfully, the guy released it to the internet. However, looking over their site it became perfectly clear that the game was merely created in NES-style. There was no Gatsby Cart, but the game has been released under the GNU General Public Liscene.
Visit http://greatgatsbygame.com/ to play through the adventures of Nick Carroway in 8-Bit glory. They also have some cool manual scans and ads for the game, made to look like NES ads circa 1990.
Everything is presented really well with text, NPCs, and bosses from the novel.
Only 4 levels (and the 4th is a joke) so this shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to demolish. I enjoy it, but would have prefered more of the story to be rendered in full.
