haloZero.jpgEver feel like today's first-person shooters have one dimension too many? Perhaps the answer to your dreams is the infringeworthy "Halo Zero," a 2D platformer made by a team of French indie developers in homage to the popular Xbox shooter series Halo.

Halo Zero has yoinked the main 3D visuals of the original game series and re-interpreted them for platform-style play, simplifying tactics into an up/down, left/right dance appealling to nostalgia-wallowing retro gamers... or those who haven't upgraded their PC since the 1990s. Although the project is non-commercial, I'd be shocked if it wasn't shut down soon. Get your download while you can, or at the very least, check out Halo Zero's interesting screen-shots.
