Someone made Counter-Strike work on Nintendo DS and it looks crazy
A smart Counter-Strike fan has built a fully playable version of the classic shooter for the Nintendo DS – and yes, you can aim and shoot with the stylus.
Counter-Strike, the game that would spawn a multi-million dollar esports landscape, first released over 20 years ago in 1999, and the effect it has had on gamers and players alike. developers is easy to see. Seriously, open up any game that lets you craft your own maps, and there’s a good chance you’ll find a Dust 2 tribute there somewhere.
Continuing this trend of making Counter-Strike playable on all technologies known to mankind, French YouTuber Fewnity introduced their new version of CS 1.6 on Nintendo DS, with a feature that allows you to use the stylus to aim and shoot.
Sure enough, we get to see the familiar backdrop of Dust 2 and a first-person view holding a gun. Showing levels of technological achievement that would have caused people to lose their minds in 2004 when the DS came out, Fewnity shows how to aim and shoot with the stylus.
We absolutely would have loved walking around with the ability to play CS in our pocket at the time, and what’s even more impressive is that Fewnity designed this Counter-Strike DS port all on its own.
It really looks like a game from 2004, and the characters look more like Robloxes than terrorists or counter-terrorists, but for an FPS on a portable system over ten and a half years old, it doesn’t. looks too shabby at all.
According to the YouTuber, this DS port of 1.6 is still in the works, but we can’t wait to see the final product once it releases. The combo of the portable system and one of the original versions of Counter-Strike brings back some serious nostalgia.
For more updates on this project, and maybe the chance to play it when it’s finished if you still have your DS lying around, be sure to follow Fewnity on YouTube as they upload more videos of their progress.
