Rol’An’Go is a New Turn Based Strategy Title for Sega Genesis

New Sega Genesis games are still coming out, not as often as the Atari 2600 receives them but still better than nothing.  One new titles that I just found out about is Rol’An’Go by Atari Age forum member, Vetea.  What is unique about Rol’An’Go is that it is a turn based strategy game, similar to […]

Near Arcade Perfect Port of Galaxian Released for Atari 2600

Homebrew developers are a unique lot, they do things that the professionals claim is impossible.  Homebrewers also do it without official development kits, most of the time, and are at a severe disadvantage compared to the professionals as far as standard education on how the hardware works.  That lack of education just may be what […]

New Version of Mario Bros Coming to Atari 2600, Already Obliterates Official Version

Man, the guys over on the Atari Age forums sure do keep themselves busy with creating new and improved versions of classic games.  Specifically classics on the Atari 2600 that didn’t exactly receive a stellar port in the first place.  Previously I looked at another improved port in the form of Pac-Man 8K Edition, also […]

Pac-Man on Atari 2600 Receives Much Improved Version by Homebrew Developer

The original Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 was a crappy game, no doubt about it.  Atari probably knew very well that they shouldn’t have released it like it was but they did anyhow.  Call it greed, call it stupidity, call it whatever you want.  The point is, it was a crap game.  Leave it to […]

Atari 2600 Q*Bert Improved to be More like Arcade Version

The Atari 2600 sure did try to be the arcade in your home, and for a while it was.  The problem is, as time went on things improved in the arcade such as the hardware and challenge provided to the gamer.  Gamers wanted more challenge, more colors, more sounds and the poor Atari 2600 just […]

Street Fight World to Bring Street Fighter II and Alpha to Atari 2600

Street Fighter II was the one game that sealed the success of the Super Nintendo in the early 90’s.  Sega simply had nothing to compete with it other than pitiful attempts that are best not mentioned in the same breath.  Capcom knew they had a gold mine on their hands based on the success of […]

Alex Kidd is coming to the TI-99/4A Computer Thanks to Homebrew Developer

The classic, and completely forgotten by Sega, game Alex Kidd is being ported to the Texas Instruments 99/4A computer.  This is not an official port but one by a homebrew developer who just happens to be a huge Alex Kidd fanatic.  Some things were sacrificed for this port, which is to be expected as the […]

Starquake Makes the Move from Atari ST to Atari Jaguar

Not too long ago we mentioned that there were over 50 new Atari Jaguar titles coming in the next year or so.  Keeping with that comment I am bringing news about another Atari ST game coming to the Atari Jaguar, Starquake.  Atari Jaguar gamers will soon be able to take control of their own Bio-Logically […]

New Colecovision Homebrew Title, Cave, Brings 3D Rogue-like Adventure to Dead Console

The Colecovision was a platform that was one of the unfortunate fatalities that occurred due to the 1983/1984 video game crash.  The console, up to this point and for a while afterwards, was doing quite well but things dropped off considerably as we neared 1985- to the point that Coleco, the parent company of the […]

Mortal Kombat Netherrealm Journey on Atari 2600 Work in Progress

Everyone that is reading this knows that Mortal Kombat never saw release on the Atari 2600.  If you didn’t, now you do.  That has not stopped indie developer and Atari Age forum member, Facemeat, from creating an action adventure title set in the Mortal Kombat world for the classic Atari console.  Mortal Kombat Netherrealm Journey […]
