Abel Alves is a Spanish comic artist who wanted to pay tribute to the ever-popular TV series, and give fans a way to immerse themselves in the addictive universe for even longer periods of time. The best way he knew how was to create a “Game of Thrones” 8-bit game.

The retro game is completely playable and available to download as freeware, including all the essentials like fluttering crows, sword fights, and magic battles.


You can play as four different characters of the show (and books, of course), each one with different attacks and abilities. There are four levels full of enemies and challenges, based on different parts of the saga for you to battle your way through.

If you haven’t already downloaded the game and started playing, then we highly recommend watching the gameplay trailer which features some excellent 8-bit soundtrack adaptations created by Floating Point:
