Bit Boy!! Covers All The Bits

Illustration for article titled Bit Boy!! Covers All The Bits

Why settle for 8-bit or 16-bit retro gameplay when you can run the whole gamut from 4 to 128 in Bplus' newly announced WiiWare title Bit Boy!!


From the creators of Niki – Rock 'n' Ball, PLÄTTCHEN – twist 'n' paint and Vektor Tank comes Bit Boy, an adventure starring a one-pixel hero Kubi on a quest that takes him through the history of gaming, from 4-bit dungeons to 128-bit worlds, all in the name of saving his pixilated friends. It sounds crazy but it just might work. Take if from Bplus art director Bernd Geiblinger.

With Bit Boy!!, we created a fantastic new arcade adventure that is delivered together with all its never-before-seen prequels from the different videogame eras. From ages 14 to 40, each Bit Generation will spark true retro feelings in all players when they set off in the ultimate pursuit of fruits and highscores."


And that right there is what video games are all about - fruit and high scores. No word on when this will actually drop, but so far it looks interesting enough to get me to be there to catch it when it does.

What the hell is "4 Bit"?

The Atari 2600 and ColecoVision were 8 bit machines, and the Intellivision was a 16 bit console.

Who's the marketing moron who came up with "4 bit"? What processor has EVER used nibbles?
