Gauntlet Trudges onto the Nintendo Entertainment System: December 1st, 1985

Tengen was one of those companies that weren’t afraid to go their own route in life, even if that meant going against the Big N and their, seemingly monopolistic, control of the gaming scene in the 80’s.  Gauntlet was one of those titles that every gamer worth their salt knew about, it was big in […]

Marlboro Atari Lynx retro hand held 3

Leery Licensing: Marlboro Licensed Atari Lynx, Plus Prototype Game

Atari was not scared to get out there and try weird things, like trying to convince gamers that the Jaguar was actually a 64-Bit console.  Anyhow, Atari was at least trying (Sega, I am looking your way concerning the Dreamcast).  Atari’s only hand held, the Lynx, was a decently popular device though it was, unfortunately, […]

Pandemic Sinclair ZX81 retro computer

New Game: Pandemic Brings Gauntlet Style Dual Stick Shooting to the Sinclair ZX81

Gauntlet style shooters are not all that new, they have been around since before Gauntlet but Atari’s classic was the first to take hold, and keep it.  Pandemic is an overhead shooter that is similar to that classic arcade game but it is for the Sinclair ZX81, a computer that hit retail shelves in 1981, […]

Dungeon Hunt Gold Atari 8-Bit Computers 2

Update: New Gameplay Video for Dungeon Hunt

While I just posted an article for Dungeon Hunt, I felt it worthwhile to do an update since the developer has released a new gameplay video showing off more of the combat and level design.  For those that didn’t read my other article about Dungeon Hunt, this is a new role playing game in the […]

Flappy Atari 2600 retro Atari Age retrogaming 2

New Game: Flappy Now Available for the Atari 2600 Video Computer System

Flappy Bird is still going strong, just now more entrenched in the retro community.  There was already one version of this title for the Atari 2600 called Flappo Bird (covered here).  Of the two, Flappy is definitely the better looking version of Flappy Bird, the question is, does anyone still care? 

Dungeon Hunt Gold Atari 8-Bit Computers 1

New Game: Dungeon Hunt Gold Now Available for Atari 8-Bit Computers

First person role playing games are something that is close to my heart.  While others were enjoying games like Ultima I was rocking out to Wizardry and Alternate Reality.  When my friends were enjoying stuff like Zelda III: A Link to the Past I was enjoying the Dungeon Master and Arcana (though I was quite […]

Easter Egg: Blast Lemmings with Super Scope 6 in Super Nintendo Lemmings Game

Easter eggs are popular, at least they were before taking a nosedive worse than scrolling shooters did in the first decade of this century.  There was a time when Easter Eggs were frowned upon, we are looking at you Warren Robinette and your “sticking it to the man” egg in Atari’s Adventure for the Atari […]

Hook Nintendo Entertainment System NES title

Bandit Gaming: Hook for Atari 8-Bit Work in Progress

Hook, the movie starring the late Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman, was a decent flick.  The movie was better than the games that were made for it (though the SNES and Sega CD versions had awesome soundtracks).  For an intellectual property that is over 100 years old, the story holds up quite well, partly thanks […]

Donkey Kong Jr Commodore 64 Atari 7800 Bandit Gaming

Bandit Gaming: Donkey Kong Jr Ported to the Commodore 64

That old adage, what is old is new again, is certainly true in the homebrew scene as old gaming properties are constantly seeing new light on platforms they may have missed from official channels.  We have seen Mario jump to the Sega Genesis, unofficial sequels to The Lion King, Link from The Legend of Zelda […]
