Slot Games and Arcade Classics – A Match Made in Heaven?

Online casino games, particularly slots, are among the most popular forms of gambling.

The Grumpy Git: Retrocomputing and eBay

Well, here we are again at another Monday. The wondrous world of computing rolls on, getting forever more irritating by the minute. I once again have found something to complain about so here we go… We all like retrocomputing; the playing of old games bringing back hours of nostalgia, or hours of pain, depending on […]

ZX Spectrum Next Promised New Dizzy Game in Final Kickstarter Week

One of the hottest properties in retro gaming, a new Sinclair ‘Speccy’, is entering its final week on Kickstarter as I type.

Is MS-DOS Considered Retro?

It’s time to ask “is MS-DOS considered a retro platform?” After all, it’s not as if you can go into your local computer store or local supermarket and find DOS games lying on the shelf. Sure, you find an array of them in your average charity shops or thrift stores.

Tomb Raider Playable in Browser, Work in Progress

When you think of retro gaming you must realize it is a subjective term. What is “retro” to me, being born in 1976, may be different to someone who was born in 2002. For me, the original Tomb Raider is retro. I remember seeing the first screen shots of Core Design’s new 3D adventure, starring […]

Well, to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the humble ZX Spectrum, I have decided to compile a list of my five favorite games. They will probably not be the ones most people would pick as I’m just weird. The games chosen are the ones I have poured the most hours into personally, so they may […]
