District 9 recreated as an 8-bit videogame

District 9 recreated as an 8-bit videogame
05 August 2015

Never mind popcorn, you'll want some tasty prawns to accompany this excellent new CineFix creation.

The Dutton brothers have worked their magic on Neill Blomkamp's 2009 sci-fi classic District 9, recreating the epic tale as an 8-bit (with a little bit of 16-bit thrown in too) videogame.

As you'd expect for a film with alien weapons, exosuits and giant motherships, it lends itself rather well to an old school shoot-em-up extravaganza as you guide Wikus through District 9, with 'prawn' Christopher Johnson alongside him.

Buckle up for a hugely enjoyable three minutes.
