Unofficial, Retro Version of Left 4 Dead Is Cute, Violent

January 5, 2010 – An unofficial but very creative 8-bit version of Left 4 Dead has been released via the web today. The game, Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead, created by Eric David Ruth, enables players to play through top-down, 8-bit versions of Left 4 Dead‘s original campaigns. It is available for anyone who owns a PC.

The information on Eric David Ruth’s website states that Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead is “a retro de-make of Valve’s hit zombie killing masterpiece. Lovingly recreated in a fashion that would have been acceptable in 1986 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, this de-make stands as the flagship title of the upcoming Pixel Force series from Eric Ruth Games. Go alone, or invite a friend for 2 player co-op against the zombie apocalypse in all 4 of the original game campaigns. 2 difficulties and all 4 of the survivors make a glorious 8-bit appearence, complete with first and second tier weapons scattered along your path to escape. So, grab your controller of choice and kick back with an award-winning retro take on the end of the world with Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead.”
