River City Ransom: Underground Hits Steam

The original River City Ransom game appeared on the NES back in 1989 and is regarded as one of the finest beat ’em ups to grace any videogame console. While initially receiving a rather lukewarm reception, the game picked up a cult following thanks to its novel fusion of beat ’em up and role-playing elements […]

Bandits at Zero Retrospective

Bandits at Zero is a supremely awesome horizontal shooter for the Commodore 16, released back in 1986. You fly a single plane over an area densely populated by enemy planes, which has a few different attack procedures and weapon capabilities. There are also ships on the sea below who can blast you out of the […]

Trouble in Vega+

Retro Computers Limited had some success with the ZX Spectrum Vega, which was an emulated machine in a ZX Spectrum style case with a directional pad and four keys. The machine came with several games–over 1,000 according to the press release–but you could also add games by putting them on to a SD card. Some […]

E-Motion Retrospective

“Ye cannae change the laws of physics, Jim!” Well that may be so, but in this game, it’s all about the electrons. Push ones of the same colour together and they disappear; different colours clashing creates new electrons of another shade. There’s a bit more to it than this, but that’s the basic idea. And […]

Battle Princess Madelyn Working Through Steam Greenlight

Okay, there is a lot of fanfare about Battle Princess Madelyn, and for good reason. Many compare it to Ghouls ‘n Ghosts by Capcom, and that is also for good reason. This game is full of action and deadly creatures waiting to end your game early. Oh yeah, this one may be heading to that […]

Top 3 SHMUPS (Top 3 Tuesday)

SHMUPS: they’re neither candy nor some weird Asian bird flu derivative! ‘SHMUP’ is Internet shorthand for “shoot ’em up”, a genre of game where you pilot a person or craft through a series of auto-scrolling stages destroying everything in sight to earn power-ups so you can destroy everything in sight even faster. In other words, […]

Metal Man Remixed for ZX Spectrum Now Available as Free Download

Metal Man Remixed was initially developed for the ZX Spectrum as one of the reward options in the Kickstarter campaign for the ZX Spectrum: a visual compendium art book in 2015. The game’s developer, Oleg Origin, has now made the game available as a free download–so now you have no excuse to play this fantastic […]

8-Bit Civilizations Commodore 64

Civilization Coming to Commodore 64 in 8-Bit Civilizations

When Sid Meier finished the first Civilization I have to wonder, did he ever entertain the thought of porting it to the Commodore 64? No matter, as developer Fabian Hertel is doing just that, well close anyhow, with 8-Bit Civilizations. This is one of those head scratching releases that you think simply won’t work. The […]

Wacky Wednesday: The “Doom”ed Trilobyte

Prior to the 1990s, people looked at the IBM PC as a joke of a gaming machine. Long diskette load times, clunky processor speeds, and a choice of CGA or EGA graphics were no match for the fast-moving sprites of the NES or arcade-quality graphics of the Sega Genesis. But 1990 saw the release of […]

Top 3 Games Left Off the NES Classic (Top 3 Tuesday)

He promised he’d be back, and he is! Arnold’s back in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which is just one of the many hundreds of games I’m choosing not to write about in response to MichaelBtheGameGenie’s latest Top 3 Tuesday video: Top 3 Games Left Off the NES Classic (which you should totally open in another window […]
