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 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 […]

Journey: Hall of Famers and Video Gamers

On April 7th, the band Journey was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Journey created hits like “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Any Way You Want it” which were perfect tunes to play in the background during long summer days of gaming. It was especially perfect if you were playing the game that […]

ST Update 'Pilot Issue', Spring (March) 1987

A Blast from the past – Atari ST Style

The past few years have seen many notable 30th anniversary celebrations in the retro computing/gaming community–from the birthdays of the humble but seminal Sinclair ZX81 and the ever-popular ZX Spectrum via the versatile BBC Micro to those mighty 16/32 bit beasts, the Atari ST, and Commodore Amiga. This month it’s the turn of the once-popular, […]

Wacky Wednesday: Attention to Detail vs. Atari

Attention to Detail Ltd., born in Warwickshire, closed their doors in 2003 but not before leaving behind a fairly impressive legacy. Founded in 1988 by five university graduates keen to do something which could both entertain them and provide money for a sizable curry budget, their break came when Atari tapped them to do work […]
