10 video games that want their very own 99 model – Destructoid

I bear in mind when Nintendo first introduced Tetris 99. It was such an insane thought — I imply, enjoying Tetris prefer it was a battle royale, with 98 different individuals (or CPUs)? However, because the saying goes, the concept was simply loopy sufficient for it to work, as there have been instances the place Tetris 99 is the one motive I’ve a Change.

Within the time since this revolutionary means of enjoying Tetris was launched and in the present day, it’s been made clear that Nintendo desires to show ‘99’-type video games right into a style. We’ve had the quick lived Tremendous Mario Bros. 35 that, whereas technically not a ‘99’-type sport, performs the very same means as if it have been; Pac-Man 99, a chaotic twist on the basic sport; and now we’ve F-ZERO 99, main the youthful generations to ask ‘what’s F-ZERO’?

In any case, the query of the day is: what’s subsequent? We’ve Tetris, Pac-Man, Mario and F-ZERO, and presumably the subsequent large variant is being deliberate as of writing. So if we had an infinite finances, and nobody to inform us ‘no,’ what video games would we wish to see emerge as a ‘99’-type sport?

10. Balloon Battle

Balloon Battle appears to be screaming for a aggressive variant. In the event that they actually needed to foster chaos, they may put all gamers into the identical degree and watch the popping start. However, I may additionally see it manifesting like Tremendous Mario Bros. 35, the place gamers would successfully be tasked with racking up the very best rating.

9. Dig Dug

I used to like enjoying Dig Dug (and different classics) with my grandma within the Namco Museum compilation for PlayStation 2. It was one of many solely gaming experiences we shared. However, sentimentality apart, Dig Dug, like Balloon Battle and several other different titles on this listing, could be excellent for the ‘99’-type of gameplay.

8. Galaga

I may most likely listing many of the previous Namco classics on this listing, however I’ll draw the road right here, with Galaga. I feel this one may work in a lot the identical means that Tetris 99 does, the place enemies you defeat are despatched over to your opponents till they’re overwhelmed. After which, in an fascinating twist, in the event you have been to die, you would select to ship a serving to hand to a different participant within the type of an additional ship.

7. Tremendous Mario Kart

I shouldn’t want to clarify this one, particularly in the event you’ve ever performed Mario Kart 8 with strangers on-line. It’s a agency opinion of mine that, if you must test your ego, play Mario Kart 8 with strangers on-line, as a result of while you emerge on the opposite aspect, you can be completely demoralized. Let’s try this, however with pixelated, 16-bit sprites. It would create world peace. However it may additionally lead to World Conflict III.

6. Puyo Puyo

Puyo Puyo — or, as most right here in North America first heard of it, Dr. Robotnik’s Imply Bean Machine — could be a superb addition to the ‘99’-type style as a result of it’s already virtually a Tetris variant. To be trustworthy, it form of surprises me there hasn’t been an acknowledgment of Puyo Puyo in Tetris 99 but, contemplating the existence of Puyo Puyo Tetris, a full crossover sport that obtained a sequel in late-2020.

5. Metroid

I feel a possible Metroid 99 would most likely have to observe in Tremendous Mario Bros. 35 and not be 99 gamers. It could most likely be very depending on degree development, which is perhaps very difficult to maintain monitor of with greater than fifty gamers. There’s little likelihood it wouldn’t be enjoyable, nonetheless.

4. Donkey Kong

To be very clear, I imply the unique Donkey Kong — barrels, Bounce Man, the works. I imply, the sport was designed to be performed indefinitely, so it’d make sense to reframe it with a web based context. Let’s see who can survive the longest towards Donkey Kong, and perhaps hand out awards for highest rating as properly!

Super Mario World

3. Tremendous Mario World

I don’t have to say a lot about this one, as a result of in my creativeness, it’d operate in a lot the identical means as Tremendous Mario Bros. 35 did, solely it’d be with Tremendous Mario World as a substitute. However, I’d insist they up the overall individuals to not less than 50 to sharpen the aggressive edge (and enhance the chaos). 

The Legend of Zelda

2. The Legend of Zelda

To be trustworthy, I’m very stunned we don’t at the moment have this. It appeared the very best time to do that would have been the thirty fifth anniversary celebration of The Legend of Zelda in 2021. However, it’s nonetheless not too late, as we’re already midway to the franchise’s fortieth anniversary in 2026, so get crackin’, Nintendo!

I don’t learn about you, however an infinite loop of aggressive microgames appears like a really good time to me. It’s the form of factor that appeals most to my restricted consideration span, and there’s nothing fairly like enjoying a bunch of aggressive, on-line mini-games to enchantment to my ADHD-addled mind. I would like this to occur, and I would like it to occur now!

In any case, it’s virtually sure that F-ZERO 99 gained’t be our final experiment on this burgeoning style, so we’ll simply need to play the ready sport to see if any of those are picked sooner or later. Would you wish to see a distinct sport obtain a ‘99’-type variant? Tell us what you suppose within the feedback!
