Llamasoft’s TxK is Now Cancelled Pending Legal Action

Tempest was a classic arcade title that polarized gamers.  You either liked it or did not get it.  There really was no in between on this game.  The man behind it, Jeff Minter, also handled the amazing Atari Jaguar port called Tempest 2000, and the game TxK for Llamasoft.  TxK hit the Playstation Vita last […]

Balloon Girl Shows Flappy Bird Clones How It’s Done on Atari 2600

Okay, it is no secret that Flappy Bird has gotten quite long in the tooth with gamers, though for some reason those articles are well read.  So, knowing that the readers are fine with more Flappy Bird I decided it might be worth covering this new, upcoming, title for the Atari 2600 called Balloon Girl.  […]

Bandit Gaming- Adventure Island Being Ported to Atari 2600 as Expedition Island

Atari is in the news a fair bit lately, from the recently discovered Alien vs Predator for Atari Lynx prototype (the third such version) to the recently released/announced Atari Jaguar games.  Tack on another title to the growing list of new Atari games, this time it is Adventure Island getting ported to the Atari 2600.  […]

Prototype: New Version of Alien vs Predator Found for Atari Lynx

This is interesting news to say the least.  The Atari Lynx was Atari’s, only, hand held device to be released and, depending on who you ask, it was a horrible failure for the company.  We did see some great games for it though, games that, honestly, should have done better and could have had Atari […]

Google’s DeepMind Artificial Intelligence Learns Retro Games, Beats Man Human High Scores without Taking Bathroom Break

The jokes about Google probably being “Skynet” of Terminator fame have been around for years.  The problem with those jokes is, as time marches on, it seems that they are getting less and less funny.  Not because we have heard them a few thousand times each, but because of how scary Google’s artificial intelligence software […]

New Game: Alien Pinball Coming to the Atari 2600

Pinball.  A staple in most arcades and a genre that is quite misunderstood by most of the, dying, arcade going public.  There is more to pinball than what players see as they pass by on their quest to put quarters into the latest one on one fighting game.  There is finesse, strategy and technique mixed […]

Updated: New Hardware- RETRO Video Game System in Development

Okay, how many times do we get to discuss upcoming, new, hardware?  Not that often, not nearly as often as we do games for old platforms.  The man behind RETRO Magazine has been tipping his toes in the waters of hardware manufacturing and launching a new gaming platform.  How he plans on doing this is […]

New Game- Atari Jaguar Gets Jagmatch Game, Roll Your Own Files Available

The Atari Jaguar, the final console from the company that arguably started the console market.  Sure, there were other consoles prior to the Atari 2600 but that debut console for the fledgling company started the console wars.  The problem is, Atari is also credited with being the company to end the first console war.  With […]

Bandit Gaming- Wipeout Ported to Atari 2600

When the Sony Playstation hit way back in the mid 1990’s it was a seminal release.  Sony was new to the console world and their aim was to be as different from the competition and what came before as possible.  One way this was accomplished was through requiring, through their stringent approval process, mainly 3D […]
