Borderlands 2 gets official 16-bit retro demake

Gearbox has released an official 16-bit retro demake of Borderlands 2, which is now available to play for free. It's a top-down shooter containing all the combat and loot-gathering fans have come to expect.

"The Border Lands is a 16-bit lo-fi game which offers a tantalizing glimpse into the origins of many elements still present in today’s hit franchise," writes Gearbox. "It may not have 87 bazillion guns, or dynamic online co-op but it does fit on five floppy disks!"

It's a simple little shooter, but should keep you distracted for five minutes. Pack it in with the main game or whack it on a portable/handheld system and I'd be quite happy with it.
