The Atari Lynx is the recipient of a new side scrolling shooter called Weltenschlachter, say that three times fast, which reminds us of Yar’s Revenge.
Rayman was the first platform star of the 32-Bit era. Ubi Soft was quick to launch this little guy unto the world of Atari Jaguar, then later Playstation and Saturn. Sadly Rayman never made it to the 3DO console- though it would have surely been quite cool if it did. Rayman was the first 2D […]
In the world of retro gaming there are not a lot of companies like Piko Interactive.
