The Italian Job Retrospective

When I got my hands on an ultra-cheap second-hand PlayStation One a few years ago, one of the first games I tried out was The Italian Job. I’m not a huge fan of the film (it certainly has its moments, but overall it didn’t think it was that great), but it seemed that this conversion […]

Hot Potato! Retrospective

Hot Potato! for the Game Boy Advance is a mad little action puzzle game that should please almost any gamer–for a while at least. The premise is simple enough. You have a tray or something (I bought the game for £3 second-hand and had no manual with it) of hot potatoes in two rows of three. […]

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 […]

Scrums, mauls and rucks aplenty on the STEEM emulator.

Word Class Rugby: Five Nations Edition Retrospective

Yes folks, way back before Italy joined the tournament and turned it into the Six Nations, we had a cracking rugby game for the Atari ST. Audiogenic made a game that still plays exceptionally well today, and they even get marks for creating a nice chip tune! (Much as I loved the ST, the chip […]

Strange Games from the East: Giftpia

How horrible would it be to grow up and never be considered an adult? To miss out on your coming of age ceremony, get arrested, and finally end up in jail with a bum? Now you only have two choices: to earn enough money to buy your adulthood or forever be chased by ghost if […]

Harvest Moon 64 Retrospective

Farming, raising cattle, mining, fishing, and marrying the girl of your dreams… what a sweet life. A slice of life farming simulator where the worst that happens is the death of a grandmother or perhaps the animals and the departure your friends. These elements are in essence what make Harvest Moon 64 such a special […]

The End of Week of Arcadia Legends Retrospective

You might have seen a sleuth of Skies of Arcadia articles in Retro Gaming Mag this last week. If you didn’t, you should go and read them, because we looked at every aspect of the game we could think of. Skies of Arcadia is a game that holds up well to this day, and perhaps […]

Out LIve English Translation Turbo Grafx-16

Review – Out Live for Turbo Grafx-16 English Translation

We take a critical look at the newly released fan translation for Out Live on the Turbo Grafx-16 console. If you are looking for hand holding in your RPG’s then look elsewhere, this is old school as can be.

Destroy Your Friendships with Dokapon Kingdom

Death, betrayal, backstabbing, and the destruction of every relationship you’ve ever held dear, that is Dokapon Kingdom. It is the bastard child of Monopoly and Dragon Quest developed by Sting Entertainment. A mixture of an RPG and a board game, in Dokapon Kingdom your goal is simple: become ludicrously rich while sacrificing all of your […]

Simpsons Wrestling

PlayStation Agony, Part 1: The Simpsons Wrestling

When Carl, the man I perceive as the primary antagonist in my life as a video game character, used a sledgehammer to defeat the lock on my door, my heart slid into my colon. “Time to pay the piper,” he said, holding up a paper shopping bag. “Donald Trump will be president, therefore you lost the […]
