If you've ever wondered what the Wes Anderson film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou would look like as an 8-bit video game, CineFix has your back. The YouTube channel created this video game-mimicking video that is closer to 16-bit, but still has lots of fun details movie fans will love.

The Bill Murray-starring Life Aquatic apparently turns a decade old this Christmas, and this video helps commemorate it perfectly. It's also extremely timely given the recent announcement of the Wes Anderson amusement park.

The video showcases several key plot points of the film, and the overall objective is clearly to find the aptly named Jaguar Shark. Retro dialogue points also pop up informing the 'player." These boxes also provide context. For example, when raiding Hennessy's lab, a pop-up lets you know what items you have obtained.
