Hot Potato! Retrospective

Hot Potato! for the Game Boy Advance is a mad little action puzzle game that should please almost any gamer–for a while at least. The premise is simple enough. You have a tray or something (I bought the game for £3 second-hand and had no manual with it) of hot potatoes in two rows of three. […]

Six Retro Alternative Sports Games That Never Get Old

Yeah, let’s hear it for some good old-fashioned SPORTSBALL, beeyotch!! Look, you either love sports games, or you love to point out how much money EA makes repackaging and re-selling the same game (sometimes literally) to players year after year.

Advance Wars Shows Nintendo Can Gamify War on Game Boy Advance – Today in Retro Gaming – September 10th, 2001

Nintendo and kiddifying things go together quite well.  Just look at the Smash Brothers series for proof of that.  Anyhow, on the Game Boy Advance Nintendo finally saw fit to bring over their turn based strategy games.  Advance Wars was the first game in the “wars” series to make it stateside, at least officially and […]

Street Fighter Alpha 3 Flawlessly Ends Trilogy of Arcade Games – Today in Retro Gaming – June 29th, 1998

Anguna, a title that was released for the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS several years ago is coming to the Atari 2600.  The developer behind the game is making an official port to the extremely limited 8-Bit hardware.  The question is, how close is it to the originals?

RPM Racing II Becomes Rock n Roll Racing on Super Nintendo – Today in Retro Gaming – June 4th, 1993

Sometimes doing these historical articles we come across a tidbit of information that is not widely known.  Sure, the hardcore of the hardcore know it but for the most part, the average fan will learn something new.  One such tidbit is that Rock n Roll Racing was originally planned as the sequel to RPM Racing.  […]

Spider-Man Continues Good Licensed Games Trek with Mysterio’s Menace on GBA – Today in History – February 7th, 2001

Anyone that has been playing games for any length of time has probably tried out a licensed game or two.  The reasons being many and varied but usually it boils down to seeing a familiar character/license amidst a sea of titles that are foreign at best.  Sometimes this works out great such as Batman on […]

Nintendo was still new to the sequel rituals when they released Super Mario Bros 2 on the NES, and boy did they go away from the norm for what a sequel was supposed to be.  Being almost a complete departure from the original NES title, in Japan the title used for the US SMB2 was […]
