Those masterminds over at Cinefix have a new 8-bit viral masterpiece on their hands - and we imagine the run button might be fairly important....

Yes, it's Forrest Gump. Part war game (Vietnam), part sport game (table tennis, American football, long distance running), and part platformer (high school bullies), it’s a marvellously layered glimpse at what Forest Gump would have looked like on an Atari-like console.

Feast your eyes on the pixelated action below.
