Some bosses cannot be defeated alone. StoryBundle’s Boss Battle Game Bundle offers readers and gamers ten titles for a limited time at www.storybundle.com—and an opportunity to fight back. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to Doctors Without Borders as medical professionals around the globe battle the COVID-19 pandemic, the biggest of bosses.
Journalist and historian Jeremy Parish returns to StoryBundle with two exclusive volumes. In The Anatomy of Super Mario Bros., explore the how and why of platforming’s biggest game, and the creations that led Nintendo to its development. The Anatomy of Mega Man dissects Mega Man 2, the franchise’s most beloved entry, to better understand why it made an indelible mark on the industry.
