God of War on the NES

Carl Williams writes, "Everyone knows that God of War is a Sony owned intellectual property, one that would probably never be made available on a Nintendo system. That hasn’t stopped some ingenuitive game hackers who have created a God of War game on the venerable 8-Bit Nintendo. Yea, the NES that was released in the mid 80′s, almost 30 years ago. That one just got a God of War game, unofficially." (Retro)

This should have been done on SNES.

Yeah, that would be pretty interesting to see how this would look on the SNES. What game would they use as the base though? Actraiser 2?

Depends, I'd love to see it a bit more isometric with dodging instead of sidescrolling. Seiken Densetsu?

They used Rygar as the base game for this hack so take that as you will.

I had played GOW on the NES emulator on PC, it is called Rygar!

As it is stated in the article (and here in the comments), this is a hack of Rygar. It is a "total conversion" of Tecmo's game.

It's funny because when I saw the headline, I thought, "Rygar would kind of be GoW in the NES days." Then saw the screenshot and laughed.

I loved Rygar on the NES!

Man I loved the hell out of Rygar! IF I still had a 480p TV I'd break it out.

Rygar was a very nice game to play on NES, nice base for making GOW.

Rygar on PS2 was amazing. God of War burrowed A LOT from that game. And the fully destroyable environments were great. I encourage everyone to give that game a try if you ever bump into it on a bargain bin. Completely worth it.
