We have seen plenty of games appear on the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter for various videogame projects over the years, but not many with various different platforms planned. Escape 2042: The Truth Defenders, a brand new 2D platform game from OrionSoft, is being developed for four different platforms: Mega Drive/Genesis, Dreamcast, Game Boy, and Windows.

Pietro Bros. New Mario Bros. Clone for the ZX Spectrum

While an official licensed Mario Bros. game did make it to the ZX Spectrum in 1987, it is generally considered to be a poor port of the 1983 arcade platformer by Nintendo. With that in mind, Christian M. Gonzalez has been working away for many months on his own version of the game and has […]

Happy Birthday, Super Mario!

Everybody’s favorite Bowser basher, Goomba grinder, Koopa killer and Mushroom masticator blew away 8-bit Japanese gamers on this day in 1985. While Nintendo’s mascot would take another month to arrive on the North American continent, Super Mario Bros. wasted no time turning the video game world on its ear. No other game has ever made […]

Spyro Flaps Wings onto Playstation – Today in History – September 10th, 1998

When the Sony Playstation blew onto the gaming scene it represented a COMPLETELY new era for both games but also the fans that enjoy playing them.  Insomniac was fresh of the release of Disruptor- a first person shooter that was not exactly “more of the same” in that genre.  The same can be said of […]

A Brief History of Endless Runners

Let us journey through gaming history to see […]

So Bad It’s Good – Jedi Power Battles ‘Forces’ You To Practice

I’m not about to beg forgiveness for that awful pun in the title, and I agree: I deserve every ounce of scorn you want to verbally unloaded on me for making it. I’m not sorry. Make my day. Come at me, bro. Also, on an unrelated tangent, Star Wars Episode I: Jedi Power Battles for the PS1 and […]

Revenge of the License: No Escape (SNES)

In October of 2014, I proclaimed The Ring: Terror’s Realm on the Sega Dreamcast the absolute worst licensed video game ever made. It fails in so many spectacular ways and creates such a train wreck of confusion and absurdity that I devoted an entire article to explaining this point. A little over a year later, […]

Today in Retro Gaming: Abuse (Shareware)

Abuse was a phenomenal action shooter with the misfortune to be released in 1996 when the PC gaming world was going apeshit for first-person shooters like Quake and Duke Nukem 3D. More’s the pity, because while developer Crack dot Com’s  first- (and only-) born did nothing to revitalize the world of video game storytelling, it […]

Revenge of the License: Batman: Revenge of the Joker

What happens when one title contains the word ‘revenge’ twice? Nothing: it’s either an editorial mistake, in which case I’ll fix it a year later when all seventeen of our readers have properly derided me as an idiot, or I’m talking about a video game with ‘revenge’ in the title. This week thankfully it’s the […]
