Early games on 2k carts but most were on 4k carts unless there was some expensive bank switching going on

Chaos was such a great game :)

Chaos does look cool!

I guess most 2600 games are comparable size-wise but Frostbite surprised me how responsive the game mechanics were -- most 2600 games feel really sluggish.

Any suggestions for the 8bit/16bit era?

1K ZX Chess for the ZX81.

1K ZX Chess's code takes up only 672 bytes in memory

I sorted all my NES emulations by size, and I think this is the coolest one near the bottom:

But that’s a physical box, not megabytes.

This little scorched earth type beauty was something me and friends battered the hell out of. I can't confirm the size, but judging by the few sprites and simple gameplay it ain't that big. But tons of fun.

Snake II for the Nokia 6310i (with a generous 30kb for OS and everything else) deserves a mention just for being so addictive

I like this entry in this 13K js game competition


I wonder what's the smallest game in the current era that was pressed onto physical media.

Philip Nunez, Wednesday, 14 October 2020 16:42 (one year ago) link

apparently sekiro was notably small in filesize, but no idea what would actually be the smallest

TRANCED INTO RADIOACTIVE PUREE (Will M.), Wednesday, 14 October 2020 20:24 (one year ago) link

there's often limited edition physical media runs of small indie games so Kero Blaster at 20mb is very likely the winner on PS4
