Kao the Kangaroo Jumps onto Sega Dreamcast – Today in History – February 13th, 2001

Keep in mind, 15 plus years ago, 3D action adventure titles were all the rage.  This was caused by a little plumber who launched a memorable console in 1996.  This should not be any surprise to anyone reading this as about a decade prior, Mario did the same thing for 2D side scrolling action games.  […]

Today in Retro Gaming: Daleks!

While the list of foes faced by the Doctor could fill an entire book, none is more iconic than the Daleks, Terry Nation’s armored, emotionless mobile gun platforms. They went from silly-looking pepper pots to pop culture icon in the blink of an eye, and no matter what the Doctor does, no matter how many […]

The Five Most Badass Retro Game Cheat Codes

We’re not telling you to wreck a good relationship or risk expulsion from school, but under the right circumstances cheating can feel so damn good. By ‘under the right circumstances’ we mean ‘when playing retro games’ because, duh, we’re Retro Gaming Magazine. While there’s something to be said for plugging in a Game Shark or […]

Allied General Lets Players Take on World War II – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

Turn based strategy war games are not all that popular in today’s market and that kind of sucks.  I grew up playing computer games a lot in the 90’s and it seems that was the golden age for this genre.  Sure, the late 80’s and early 90’s probably had more turn based strategy war games, […]

Brain Dead 13 FMV Game Gives You Unlimited Lives Because You Will Need Them – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

A little disclaimer in the manual for Brain Dead 13 set the pace for the rest of the game.  You are given unlimited lives and will probably need all of them to survive Brain Dead 13.  For those that do not know about Brain Dead 13, it is a Full Motion Video Game (FMV) in […]

RotL: Star Trek – Starfleet Academy Starship Bridge Simulator

“Any suggestions, Admiral?” “Prayer, Mr. Saavik. The Klingons don’t take prisoners.” Space…the final frontier. These aren’t the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. They’re not the voyages of any starship–at least not yet. If you want to make Captain, if you want to sit in the big chair, if you’d rather by out hopping galaxies instead […]

Dragon Climax New Scrolling Brawler for PC Steam Greenlight

The early days of brawlers such as Vigilante and Kung Fu Master had a certain charm to them.  They were not as complicated as the later entries in this genre such as Final Fight and Double Dragon.  No, those early games had direct fun written all over them- none of that cheap “side stepping” that […]

Review- Ninja Savior Brings Mobile Jumping Game to MSX Computer

There is a trend in homebrew development that involves taking modern ideas and making games for classic platforms.  We have seen this most prominently with Bejeweled style games being released on Game Boy Advance and other platforms.  With Ninja Savior we see another mobile game style being released for a classic platform.  The MSX computer […]

Antraxx Reminds Us of Giant Mech Gaming

Who remembers the good old days of gaming?  No, I am not talking about the golden age which was Atari 2600 on up into the Nintendo Entertainment System era.  I mean the era of 16-Bit where we got to the point where many game companies have never left (Capcom and their fighting games for instance).  […]

Evil Genome New 2.5D Metroidvania Adventure Steam Inbound

Okay, just being a 2.5D Metroidvania style game is not enough to capture the attention of modern gamers.  No, there has to be something more.  Evil Genome is hoping it has what action adventure fans are yearning for as it continues development.  Eventually we will see Evil Genome on Steam and Kickstarter but for now […]
