5 Mortal Kombat Ports You Won’t Care to Play

Mortal Kombat.  You either love it or wonder what all of the fuss is about.  There were a couple of eye catching differences when it hit arcades.  First, the graphics, these were not hand drawn cartoon characters like Street Fighter II.  Second, you could literally, positively, END your opponent after winning the fight.  The fact […]

Piko Interactive’s Broken Circle on Steam Greenlight

When you think of new games for old platforms you may think of hacks or illegal reproductions of rarer titles.  Piko Interactive do not partake in either of those, rather they purchase the rights to the games, fix them and in many cases, finish them.  After all of that, Piko releases the game to the […]

Dorke and Ymp Has Been Eerily Greenlit on Steam

It is no secret that I am a fan of Piko Interactive and their continued work in keeping the retro gaming community with new games to play.  They have been doing this for years, acquiring the rights to unreleased games, finishing them and releasing them as they were intended.  Sometimes we get these games on […]

Revenge of the License: Board Games

The most obvious shortcut you can take as a game developer is to make a game out of something that is already a game. Chess programs have been used to sell people on the idea of home computers since the 1970s, every version of Windows has shipped with Solitaire built right in, and casino games […]

Save the Kingdom of Daventry in King’s Quest – Today in History – May 10th, 1984

The original King’s Quest was quite a game.  For the time it was amazing, it still is in many respects.  King’s Quest was a marvel for the period and something that was just not seen on computers.  Up to the release of this harbinger of things to come title by Sierra Entertainment (later to become […]

Super Joe is the Lone Arcade Commando – Today in History – May 8th, 1985

Capcom used to make these awesome arcade games.  From Final Fight to Street Fighter II, Capcom were kings of the arcade for years.  One early title that holds a lot of nostalgia power with us old timers is Commando.  While war is not something to make light of, it is usually the best and most […]

Take Down Nazi Forces in Wolfenstein 3D on PC – Today in History – May 5th, 1992

Okay, back in the early 1990’s PC gaming was COMPLETELY different than it is today.  We actually went to stores and bought games.  We didn’t have online capabilities standard in games.  We barely had modem, land line, multiplayer.  Direct, in the same room multiplayer was common around this time.  We also would call or write, […]

Jazz Jackrabbit Jumps Past Mario on PC – Today in History – May 3rd, 1994

While today 2D side scrolling action platform titles are a regular occurrence, they are still not as popular they were on consoles 20+ years ago.  Jazz Jackrabbit was not perfect but it was lightyears ahead of similar titles on personal computers of the time.  If you were a fan of action platform titles and only […]
