Take a look at “Doctor Who 8-Bit Beta”
Taking the lead from the 50th Anniversary 8-bit Google Doodle or ‘Whodle’; the world of Doctor Who has once again been rendered in the pixelated perfection that is 8 bit graphics in Doctor Who 8 Bit Adventure – a new app currently undergoing Beta testing on Android via Google Play.
And what’s more, Wee Beasts Studios, the company behind the game which sees the Tenth Doctor side-scroll his way through the intentionally blocky universe with just his wits and a Sonic Screwdriver to outsmart his deadliest foes, are currently looking for anyone with knowledge of Graphical, Audio, and GML Coding to get the game finished.
This isn’t the first time the Doctor has been render in glorious 8-bits; Dalek Attack, the 1992 game released on the PC, Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amiga, Atari ST, saw numerous Doctors take on a horde of invading Daleks in this, the last of the Spectrum licensed games.
