A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Sixth Day, Joust

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, six geese a laying. As inexplicable the bird theme is with this carol, the lyric “six geese a laying” could have been the inspiration for the game Joust. Albeit, during the better part of a drunken eggnog bender. Just think of it, a […]

Astronomer Atari 2600

View Heavenly Bodies on Atari 2600 with Astronomer

If you think “all” ideas for games have already been done, then you have not tried Astronomer on the Atari 2600. Yep, you read that right. An independent developer is working on an Atari 2600 game that is based on astronomy. You can even play it online right now. Link after the jump, of course.

Atari Jaguar Emulator Comes to Android Platform

Emulation and Android are almost synonymous with each other. There are plenty of options, both free and paid, available for just about every popular platform to see the light of day (anyone working on a Nemo emulator?). Now, we can add another Atari Jaguar emulator (RetroArch being another) via IrataJaguar. If you plan on running […]

New Jaguar Game in the Works Called JagZombies

Do you know what you get when fans figure out how to make games for their favorite consoles? You get stuff that is unique, often quite different than what was released commercially. Take for instance JagZombies, a work in progress title for the Atari Jaguar console. This is a lightgun style game pitting you against […]

My Favorite Gaming Hidden Gems, Part One: Snoopy and the Red Baron (1983, Aari 2600)

I’ve been playing and collecting video games since the early 1980’s, and while there’s something to be said for enjoying the greats of the gaming world, there’s no better feeling for me than picking out something I’d never heard of, throwing it into my system, and being unable to tear myself away from it because […]

Switchblade Atari Jaguar

Switchblade Comes to Atari Jaguar

Raise your hand if you remember Switchblade. For me, I remember an Atari Lynx game using this name maybe with a “II” after it other than that, this is a new game to me. I understand that this was originally a Commodore Amiga game which is a shame because the only Commodore computer I gamed […]

Space Cactus Canyon Atari 2600

Space Cactus Canyon Enters Beta on Atari 2600

Life as a cactus is not exactly a life of action. You pretty much stand there in all the heat all day and soak up what little water you can. That is a normal cactus. The last cactus on Earth, who just happens to be the star of Space Cactus Canyon on the Atari 2600, […]

Sword of Iffrit

Sword of Iffrit New Atari 2600 Game in Beta

New Atari 2600 games seem to be falling out of the sky. Most of them are mock-ups only featuring no gameplay and certainly not running on actual hardware (old school limitations suck). One rather interesting new game that is currently in beta that caught my attention is Sword of Iffrit. This appears to be an […]
