3DNes – Play old NES games in 3D mode

The 8-bit graphics effect of video games on Nintendo’s FC console is simple and crude today, but from the angle of playability, they are still very delicate and interesting now. Anyway, a lot of video game fan players are still have a strong interest in the classic NES games.

3DNes is a wonderful NES game emulator developed by Tran Vu Truc, which can convert the traditional 2D perspective of NES games to 3D version. It was originally released as a Firefox plugin, and the release of its standalone version (provides free download for Windows users only) means we can enjoy the classic NES games on computer in an unprecedented way (brand new angle of view, different visual experience) now.

The working principle of 3DNes is: First, you should know the character picture and game background in NES games are basically simple facets structure. In this case, as long as we find a method to analyze each color piece, then perform vector displacement and add shadow effect to them, thus we can make each pixel transform into three-dimensional structure with square style. By this, those classic NES game works get more fashionable visual representation. And just for this reason, 3DNes does not require high computer configuration, usually, any one computer you bought 4~5 years ago can run it smoothly.

// A Simple Tutorial //

We all want to quickly enjoy the perfect 3d experience from old nes games. And here is the best way to do:

  1. Go to the repositoty
  2. Grab a 3dn file of the game you want and put it in the rom folder
  3. Change its name to match rom file, (if you already have the mario.nes rom then change the 3dn file name to mario.3dn).
  4. Launch 3dnes, open rom file then here we go!

If you want more 3dn files to select? Please share your work. It’s not necessary a complete one. Someone will pick it up and add more refinement.
