80s’ Classic Montezuma’s Revenge Getting New NES Port

The original developer is physically releasing the game on the Nintendo Entertainment System with a modern upgrade.

Video games have come a long way since their inception a few decades ago. We get to play games that look almost like real life, with technologies like ray-tracing. However, this wasn’t always the case and the start of our favorite lifestyle was different. Platform games in 2D were the main thing back in the 80s on the older Atari and Apple devices. Such games paved the way for modern gaming and are a lot of fun, too. One of these games is Montezuma’s Revenge, which was a very popular 2D platform game on Atari consoles. Apparently, a new version of this classic is coming out from the original creator.

Montezuma’s Revenge is getting a port for the NES from the original game designer, Robert Jaeger. A physical release of the 80s game will take place on the NES cartridges. It is based on modern technology but also captures the essence of the original game, according to Robert Jaeger. This is the first version of the game on the Nintendo Entertainment System almost 40 years later.

Robert Jaeger has launched a Kickstarter campaign for this project. It already has a lot of backers and is nearing its $35,000 goal. So, if you want to complete your retro gaming collection you can help out by donating to this campaign. Montezuma’s Revenge is a programming marvel, so having this one in your library is essential.

Saying all that, this is not a half-hearted attempt but a brand new modern port. Robert Jaeger has added a completely new soundtrack and also has more modern graphics. The port is complete and has zero development errors. It’s also been tested on NES emulators and has all the 99 rooms and nine pyramid levels. Hence, it’s a complete package of Montezuma’s Revenge, which any Nintendo player will enjoy.

Robert Jaeger has also made several editions of this available for players. You can buy the basic edition with a key chain, posters, and much more. Furthermore, if you want to get a collector’s edition item, you can buy the limited-time deluxe edition. This Montezuma’s Revenge package includes caps, maps, a color box and much more, alongside the RAM-based port. 

Many versions of the game are present on different platforms, including the Atari and Sega systems. However, this is the first time it is ever launching on the NES. One of the most widely ported and most impressive games of the 80s coming on NES is very exciting for everyone. Getting to play such a miraculous example of early game development is something rare.
