Ghost Blade HD Brings Indie Bullet Hell Dreamcast Game to PC

Ghost Blade by Hucast games is one of those indie games that we saw years after the demise of the Sega Dreamcast. What set Ghost Blade apart from the competition was the graphics, sound, and the challenge level. Everything appeared more like an official release than an indie game developed with after the fact tools. […]

Fable of Ruby

The Legend of Zelda may never come to Android but you can enjoy The Fable of Ruby right now – overhead action adventuring awaits.

BOH Receives 17th Major Update, Has New Home

Okay, for me, BOH is a choice title. I was there discussing the game with the author, Simone Bevilacqua, early on (I believe this was round update number two). Mr. Bevilacqua has been working hard to keep BOH interesting and fun for both hardcore and new fans of the game. The list of additions and […]

Axelay Gives Gamers Both Kinds of Shooters on Super Nintendo – Today in Retro Gaming – September 14th, 1992

Back in the day scrolling shooters were a dime a dozen.  To stand out from the crowd you had to have something unique in your shooter.  Just being a side or horizontal scroll shooter was not enough anymore.  Konami was, at this time, kicking butt with their other games- Castlevania IV, Contra III etc.  They […]

Salamander Infects Japanese Arcades – Today in Retro Gaming – July 4th, 1986

Retitled “Life Force” when released in North America a few months later, Salamander was iconic for gamers.  First, this was a spinoff of another Konami arcade shooter- Gradius.  We all know how well spinoff titles usually do in gaming so it is rather interesting that Salamander was able to buck the trend.  Can anyone name […]

Grand Theft Auto Brings Open World Crime to Playstation – Today in Retro Gaming – June 30th, 1998

Did you know that Grand Theft Auto was initially planned to be a Commodore Amiga title?  While never having been released for that classic computer, it did go on and sell millions of copies on the original Playstation and successor consoles.  Grand Theft Auto was one of those titles that was blamed for a lot […]

Review – Air Attack 2 Overhead Shooter Android iPhone

Classic genres such as overhead shooters have been finding a new home in the mobile world.  That is great for fans that just want to see more overhead shooters.  Many of these newer games are not my cup of tea though- they are of the “bullet hell” style which I can honestly do without.  I […]

Bandit Gaming- Unreleased Salamander HD Remake Android Version Leaked, We Review It

Konami used to make really cool games.  Stuff like Gradius, Contra and Salamander to name a few.  There were few methodical scrolling shooters that could hold their own against Konami’s best in the genre.  Salamander, titled Life Force for North American release, was originally a spin-off of the Gradius series of scrolling shooters.  Well, recently, […]

Review- Galactic Nemesis on Android, ZTE Maven

Overhead scrolling shooters are a staple of gaming.  They have been around since the early days with Space War on up to modern interpretations on mobile devices.  We have seen new renditions on the idea with titles like Mig 2D and even reboots like Sky Force 2014.  We have seen the classics revived with Raiden […]

Import Review – Aleste Sega Game Gear

Compile certainly knew how to make a scrolling shooter.  They created the Aleste series in Japan.  Some their titles were ported over to North America’s Sega Genesis and Sega CD.  We got M.U.S.H.A. (who remembers what that stands for?) and we got Robo Aleste here on Sega CD to name a couple.  One title that we […]
