    I thought it worked well. I wouldn't of minded seeing something similar on the Super Nintendo, back in the day.
    I don't think it's bad, but for me some of those old NES games like Kid Icarus, Metroid, Dr Chaos, Phantom Fighter, etc. really took on a creepier ambience from those stark black backgrounds. It's kind of unique to the 8-bit era how those games would have those plain black backdrops to save memory, and inadvertantly picked up some sense of isolation. I dunno, maybe that's just me. The 3D classics Kid Icarus does seem pretty tastefully done, though, for what it is.

    No, it's not just you.

    I can entirely understand how that could add to the appeal.

    I was waiting for someone to mention that. I wonder if Von Richter's Metroid SR388 might one day rise from the ashes mysteriously?

    Reckon Clock Tower qualifies. (There's a translation patch.)

    Clock Tower actually makes me wonder why (aside from Nintendo's douchebaggery) there weren't more horror games on the SNES or SFC.
