To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Sega CD cult classic Night Trap, Limited Run Games will be releasing a remastered version sometime this spring. 

OpenLara Tomb Raider in Browser

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 a girl, and thinking this was going to be hell to play. I ended up buying my first PlayStation before Tomb Raider released (there were just more PSOne games I was interested in at the time than Saturn — though I got one of those, too, a year later or so). When I picked up my copy of Tomb Raider from Electronics Boutique, I could not wait to get home and play it. This was one of the few times I regretted living over an hour and a half from the nearest EB. It was worth the wait though. Now, a portion of the original Tomb Raider is playable in your browser (more is being worked on). Isn’t technology wonderful?

Next Sinclair ZX Spectrum Launched on Kickstarter

A brand-new Sinclair Spectrum home computer has been launched, just in time to celebrate the 35th birthday of the iconic original 48k British gaming classic.

This latest and most promising homage to Sir Clive Sinclair’s classic ZX Spectrum+ has been dubbed the ‘Sinclair ZX Spectrum Next’ by new UK manufacturers SpecNext Ltd. The company has its registered office at 135 Bermondsey Street, London, and was incorporated on February 9, 2016 by game designer Carlos Henrique Olifiers, Co-Founder of BAFTA-winning games developers Bossa Studios.

Top 5 ZX Spectrum Games

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 not be the usual ones people expect. I guarantee you, there will be no mention of Elite in any size, shape, or form beyond this statement. It may be other people’s favorite, but not mine.

StarCraft PC

StarCraft Plus Expansion Free Leading Up to HD Remake Release

To say Blizzard is not for their fans is just flat-out wrong. This company has gone out of their way to release some of their past works for free, give free online play, and continue updating their older games decades after release. One such instance is StarCraft, which has just received a major update, been released for free, and updated to run on Windows 7, 8.1, and Windows 10.

Soulless 2 Commodore 64

Soulless 2 in Development for Commodore 64

Fans of 2D side scrolling action adventures need to check out Soulless (we covered it in the first issue of our mag). Soulless 2 is currently in development and looking interesting. The action is methodical and will require some thinking to get through to new scenes. Soulless is like the Metroid series: you won’t get far simply by blasting your way around. You will need to use your noggin from time to time.

Pentomino – New Game Released on the Amstrad CPC

Following last year’s release of the impressive Defence–the aptly titled defense game–developer Shining have turned their hand to the puzzle genre with their latest game. With Pentomino, Shining look to have produced a mighty fine-looking puzzler.

Sine Mora Ex Nintendo Switch

Sine Mora Ex on Nintendo Switch versus Playstation 3

I am a huge fan of scrolling shooters. I suck at them but I like things that go boom in pretty explosions. Years ago, though, about 25 years or so, I was really good at these, never able to one man any single game but still able to beat man with the allotted lives. Years of playing Bejeweled clones and strategy games has let my scrolling shooter skills fade quite a bit. That doesn’t mean I can’t recognize a good one when they come along. Sine Mora is just that – a good scrolling shooter and it is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch

More Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Information and New Video

It is a mainstay for Nintendo when they launch a new console or handheld. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe just continues the kart racing, friendship destroying, fun we know and love. Here we have updated information on the Nintendo Switch game and even a new video after the jump.
