Studio Dustmop Releases Star Versus on Physical NES Cart

Studio Dustmop has recently released a amazing 2-player Nintendo Entertainment System on an actual cartridge. The game pays homage to one of the first video games ever, SpaceWar! but will also remind you of its descendant Asteroids.

This is the first of a few physical cart games that are coming soon, including Brad Smith’s Lizard. Purchase your copy here!
