First game competition will be, in celebration of this games’ 20th anniversary, Golden Eye 007 on Nintendo 64! There can be up to 40 participants competing and we’ll play 4 player multiplayer games on the level Complex with Power Weapons.

Characters are pre-set to Bond, Natalya, Ourumov and Xenia. Aim is set to Sight ON and Auto Aim OFF.
In the first round the first and second player of each game will advance to the second round where a total of 20 players will remain and once again fight on the same terms 4 on 4. First and second place player advance to the third round where we will have three matches containing 4, 3 and 3 players, here only the winning player advance to the final round and also a bonus finalist.

Due to some technical difficulties Retrospelsmässan will unfortunately not hold the regular Super Mario Bros competition. Instead it is being replaced by a competition in Super Tetris 3 on Super Famicom. We hosted a competition in this game last year and it was a hit!

This competition will also be in multiplayer, 2 player VS mode.
32 people can compete and the winner will advance, so next round will be 16 players, then 8, then 4 and finally 2 competing to see who’s the Tetris champion! 😀 The signup for the Tetris competition starts at 12:30! Show up by the stage on time to be able to participate! First come first served 😉
Tetris is a classic game and it’s universal, appealing to all types of players, regardless of gender or age ❤ Did you know that Tetris was the first video game in space? A Russian cosmonaut brought his Nintendo Game Boy and a Tetris cartridge with him on his journey to the Mir space station back in 1993 😀
