Watch 8-bit Einstein take down Tesla in Science Kombat
Is there any point in developing new fields of scientific study if you can’t use them to destroy fellow scientists? Probably. But that isn’t stopping Science Kombat from pitting history’s greats against each other.
The free game lets you play as everyone from Pythagoras to Alan Turing, in charming retro style. The game was produced by Otavio Cohen and Fred Di Giacomo Rocha at Superinteressante magazine, with the help of illustrator Diego Sanches.
You can play Science Kombat over on the Superinteressante website, but be warned that it takes a little while to load.
We previously featured Sanches’ character animations, which give a feel for the various special moves each scientist offers – Charles Darwin has a trans-species head-butt called “Evolution”, Marie Curie has the Hadouken-like “Radium”, and Isaac Newton can – naturally – knock an enemy out with a falling apple.
Check out a handful of the animations below.
