16-bit Thor game eclipses the proper releases

Browser-based timewaster gets a largely positive response

While the official Thor: God Of Thunder game explodes across all platforms (and our brothers over at Play aren’t impressed) like a sudden tropical shower, Marvel have launched a free-to-play online 2D action game reminiscent of the golden age of arcade platformers.

The proudly 16-bit Thor: Bring The Thunder! features characters from the comic, largely ignores the film and seems to be getting a much better reception. It’s like a Norse Mega Man.
