2D remake of Modern Warfare 2

Is indie dev’s pet project better than the Stimulus Package?

An indie game developer known as CalbiTheZebra has created a wonderful 2D interpretation of Modern Warfare 2, last year’s $1.5 billion behemoth from Activision and Infinity Ward. Though short, the game features loads of variety (snowmobiles! helicopters!) and includes memorable locations and blockbuster moments from the original game. And the best part of all? You can download and play it yourself, for free, RIGHT NOW.

We know that a third-person action version of Call of Duty is in development at Activision. Maybe Mr. TheZebra’s side-scroller will convince them that a 2D retro edition is a good idea too.
