New Homebrew 'Jet Pilot Rising' Launches Onto Super Nintendo

Jet-Pilot-Rising-Super-Nintendo-HomebrewOut of nowhere an all new Super Nintendo game has rocketed onto the scene and it's quite the eye-opener. Jet Pilot Rising is the latest homebrew title to hit Nintendo's 16-bit console, a side scrolling arcade flyer featuring stand-out visuals and a chiptune soundtrack to boot.

Although the concept is simple - an airborne obstacle avoider - Jet Pilot Rising's surreal presentation offers some fantastic animation you'd expect to see in a retail release. Starring a rocket-riding-cat, the game tasks you with gliding through the misty skies dodging flaming falcons and creatures of the dead whilst collecting collectable coins.

Despite creating a rather impressive title by homebrew standards, the developer behind Jet Pilot Rising has decided to stay somewhat anonymous by leaving the game's release in the hands of the German based website SNESfreaks. The ROM of Jet Pilot Rising can now be downloaded for free and enjoyed on either a Super Nintendo emulator or compatible flash cartridge.

Its always fun to play these 16bit games with a modern slant. I wish they had physical releases though!

Always excited for new releases, homebrew etc. What baffles me is the choice of format. As Julian said above, physical release would have been great in my eyes. :o
