Throwback Thursday: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Indie game looks POWERFUL

Since it falls on a Throwback Thursday, this is POWERFUL to the eye!

I grew up watching the original Filmation and Mattel's "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" cartoon series, and while it certainly has its chops and hooky animated moments, it is regarded as one of the classics that defined a generation of toys and viewers who remember a universe with magic and myth where the battle between good and evil was waged on a planet called Eternia.

Now, some indie game developers have made what is certainly a SURPRISING marriage of that classic series with a side-scroller game system akin to Final Fight and Golden Axe. Kotaku has posted this amazing article which showcases this amazing He-Man game, that features not only the "Most Powerful Man in the Universe" as a playable character, but also the likes of Man-At-Arms, Teela, Orko, She-Ra, and even guest star Lion-O from the Thundercats?!

If that last line didn't reel you in or convince you, maybe this YouTube video demo will.
