Classic movie Scarface recreated as an 8-bit shooting game

This 8-bit video game rendition of Scarface is packed full of funny observations and tributes to Brian De Palma's classic gangster movie.

It's created by 8 Bit Cinema, the outfit behind classic era game recreations of such films as Blade Runner, Fight Club and Inception. This Scarface spoof is mostly a side-scrolling combat game, which includes such classic moments as "Kill that piece-a-shit Frank," "Hire squirming Ernie," "blow up the journalist" and "say hello to my little friend."

The music is also pretty damned good. Scarface, released in 1983 and starring Al Pacino, is the violent story of a petty drug dealer turned crime lord.
