Getting bored of playing your collection of classic 8-bit and 16 bit games using emulators on your Android device? You might be interested to hear about a new game that takes you back to the good old days where gameplay trumps graphics, though not always necessarily so.

We’re talking about Bionfly, the latest side-scrolling action game starring Mario’s robo cousin from theOmenbit that is now available on Google Play.

One of the game’s USPs is its retro-looking pixel art graphics. In other words, you’ll be looking at a pretty simple presentation with no fancy 3D effects. But hey, it doesn’t make Bionfly any less interesting or easy to play, what with 20 tough levels that you have to complete. The objective is to collect the scattered Onyx gems as fast as you can while tackling enemies and navigating through some perilous landscapes.

As for the best part, Bionfly is a free download from Google’s front store. We’ve embedded the video above so you can check the game out before hitting the link below. Do you dig the lo-fi game soundstrack?
