Tinheading to the Nintendo eShop
A listing for the 1993 platformer Tinhead as appeared on the Nintendo eShop. Tinhead was originally developed by Microprose U.K. and released on the Sega Genesis. At one point it was meant to be ported to the Super Nintendo, but that version of the game was cancelled, making this its first appearance on a Nintendo console.
Tinhead is scheduled to be released next week, October 13, 2022 and will cost $4.99. See below for the game’s official description.
Tinhead is an action/adventure platformer which put the player in control of Tinhead as he embarks in a journey to save the stars from the evil Grim Squidge.
Leap, slide, hop, fly and shoot your way through wacky worlds and super-tricky challenging levels as you guide Tinhead to free the stars. Take on pesky spinning Krystals, relentless flying Saw-Sirs and hordes of mega-tough bosses.
Who will save the stars before it’s too late? Tinhead, Defender of the Edge of the Galaxy, of course!
