Bandit Gaming – Aventura Updates Classic Adventure for Sega Genesis

The classic Adventure on the Atari 2600 was one of those games that you either loved or hated.  For many they loved it.  It was so different from what was available for the Atari, or any console, back then.  For me, I was too young to enjoy it early on so I was not aware […]

Revenge of the License: The X-Files (PS1)

‘The X-Files’ utterly changed the face of television. It scared us with ghost stories for adults. It boggled our minds with conspiracies within conspiracies. In its early days, before internet access was something everyone took for granted, it gave us a reason to visit the library and research topics ranging from alien abduction and the […]

Scourge of the Underkind

Scourge of the Underkind Brings Back Gauntlet Style Gaming to Commodore Amiga

In the world of independent homebrew releases we are usually inundated with certain styles.  Mostly puzzle games on computers and somewhat decent platform games on console.  There have been some standouts on each platform in many areas.  I have to point out Griff the Winged Lion as one that is an amazing standout- same for […]


Review – Sam Mallard Case of the Missing Swan for the ZX Spectrum

Text adventures and I go way back.  From classics like Zork to The Hobbit to The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, I have enjoyed text adventures for almost three decades now.  Then came the graphical text adventure which The Hobbit could be viewed as an early precursor of, and it was only getting better in […]

Hyper Street Kart

Super Mario Kart Becomes Hyper Street Kart Thanks to Fans

As far as I know, there is one genre that Capcom never took their popular Street Fighter II series of games – kart racing.  They have been involved in puzzle games, fighting games of course, and even a crappy live action movie and plenty of anime stuff.  Not kart racing for some reason though.  Thanks […]


The New Nintendo Classic Console Previewed

  You’ve probably already heard that the classic Nintendo console has returned. The new NES is practically the same in design, but only cuter than before. It’s called NES Classic Mini and it’s the official relaunch containing 30 classic hits and most loved 80s games ever.

Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill

Second Dimension Responds, Raises More Questions on Shaky Kickstarter for Socks the Cat

In my previous article on this situation I brought up concerns that I gained after inquiring on the legal situation of Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill for the Super Nintendo.  This unreleased game has just surfaced on Kickstarter under the “Second Dimension” account so I contacted them late last week to inquire on the […]


The Best Retro Casino Games of All Time

Throughout the decades we have seen some incredible casino games, and here are the best retro casino games that we played as kids.

Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill

Kickstarter Beware – Socks the Cat Super Nintendo

First of all, I am a big fan of rescueware- the process of taking an old abandoned game, getting the rights to it and either finishing it or fixing it and then releasing it for fans to enjoy.  When I first heard about someone apparently launching a Kickstarter campaign to release Socks the Cat on […]
