Composer and sound designer Jake "Virt" Kaufman follows up his Super Mario Bros. hi-def sound design experiment by giving 8-bit games like Tetris, Pac-Man, Mega Man, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda and Contra the "ultra nextgen AAA" sound design treatment.


My favorite maybe be the brief, horrifying sounds of Asteroids. Kaufman trades the thumping soundtrack of that arcade great for something quiet and claustrophobic. Put on those headphones and give this HD audio remix a listen, will ya?
