Aero the Acro-Bat: Bucket List Game in Pictures

Aero the Acro-Bat is a Bucket List game. Period. Here is an excerpt from our glowing overview of the classic game. Read the entire thing and much more in Backlog and Bucket List Issue 1:

I received Aero the Acro-Bat the same day as Mega Man X for my birthday when I was young. Although Aero found a stiff competitor in one of the best Bucket List Games of all time in the Blue Bomber’s first X outing on the Super Nintendo, I could not help but love the circus bat’s five-star performance.

Now, enjoy Aero the Acro-Bat in pictures!

You should add Aero to your Bucket List because . . .

Aero jumps through rings!

Want a Sneak Peak at Issue 2’s Cover?

Hello, Ladies and Gentle Gamers!

With August coming to an end, that means another issue of Backlog and Bucket List Gaming is just around the corner.

If you haven’t picked up Issue 1 yet, you can do so by clicking on the awesome links at the bottom of this post.

In the mean time, here’s a sneak peak at the color scheme of issue 2’s cover.

You Ready?

You really ready?

Backlog and Bucket List Gaming Issue 2 Cover Sneak Peak

The cool thing about having already put in the work to create the overall cover design is that the composition and parameters of the cover has already been finished. Therefore, all I really had to focus on is changing the color scheme as well as making minor improvements here and there. I was going for a subdued, Summer transitioning into Autumn look to contrast the bright design of the previous issue.

It was a fun cover to design, and I can’t wait to see how I’ll tinker with it in the future.

Thanks for reading, fellow gamers! Backlog and Bucket List Gaming Issue 2 will be available in the coming weeks.
