Retro City Rampage DX Hits Retro Platform

Retro City Rampage is one of those modern games that attempts to rip off the classic “retro” look.  It is intentionally developed using minimalistic graphics and sound/music.  A lot of developers feel this is the route to take to make their game stand out.  Unfortunately, a lot of developers are forgetting to make their games […]

Volgarr the Viking Ported to Sega Dreamcast, Released for Free with Permission

Volgarr the Viking is a newer 2D side scrolling action adventure for Microsoft’s Xbox and Steam, well it was released almost a year ago but that is still newer than Rygar or Ghouls n Ghosts, right?  I mention those two classics because it is quite clear that Volgarr the Viking is taking, at least, visual […]

Take Your Commodore 64 On-Line with Upcoming Wi-Fi Cartridge

The Commodore 64 featured a lifespan that was somewhat unique, especially considering how popular it was (and remains to be).  Particularly, it missed the Internet (as we know it) and it missed “affordable” Wi-Fi options that we enjoy today.  Those things have not stopped independent developers from creating a Wi-Fi cartridge for the little Commodore […]

1983 Game, Labyrinth of Crete, Fixed by Fans in 2015

When you discuss game hacks most people will think of that one time that they played a hack of Super Mario Bros that had Sonic instead of Mario.  Or they will think of gamers playing illegally obtained copies on a ton of different hardware (Nintendo games on Sony – which almost happened – for instance).  […]

Shardlight is a New Point and Click Adventure Title by Wadjet Eye Games Update

Earlier today, Wadjet Eye Games updated their Shardlight photo album on Facebook with 10 new photos of the game.  The pics show off various new sections, possible new characters and new settings we can expect in the final game.  Also, the release date is now listed as late 2015, still in line with previous reports […]

Fans to Port Minecraft to Amstrad CPC, With Your Help

Minecraft, the little block breaking/building game that Microsoft decided was worth quite a bit of money is getting an, obviously, unofficial port to the Amstrad CPC.  This is not endorsed by Microsoft, and likely to be shut down once they find out about it, so don’t go bugging them to find out the release date.  […]

Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour Takes the Classic FPS into the 2D Realm

Serious Sam was the joke game that took off and found its legs and a rather large fanbase.  This was not a serious game, regardless of the name, as enemies were caricatures of familiar ones from other games.  Fans ate it up, big time.  The Serious Sam series has not stuck to First Person Shooters […]

Silent Hill Lives on in Half Life 2 through Alchemilla Mod with Oculus Rift Option

Silent Hill is one of those franchises that appeared during the 32-Bit Sony Playstation days that simply has not died, at least till recently.  Konami recently announced that the new Silent Hill title is more than likely not going to see the light of day (in Silent Hill, was there really any light?).  The horror […]

Futurama the Great Unlicensed Adventure Awaits

Futurama is one of those cartoons for adults that was not quite as offensive as Family Guy but was not as family entertaining as The Simpsons. It is also one of the least ported to gaming cartoons that we have seen (it did get a PS2 or Xbox 3D action adventure but that is it).  […]

Sam’s Journey Tells Mario to put up or Shut Up on Commodore 64, Nintendo Silent

Super Mario Brothers never made it to the Commodore 64, though Hudson Soft did license the series for IBM PC computers.  That might be why Nintendo stopped allowing their games onto other platforms, till the CD-i debacle with Zelda and Mario.  That has not stopped other publishers from doing games that are quite similar to […]
