5 New Ways to go to Hell with Doom

Doom is an iconic game, one that arguably kept PC gaming alive in the early to mid 90’s as the previous mainstay (point and click adventures) started finding their ilk was no longer wanted by gamers. Sales were slumping in most genres as consoles such as the Super Nintendo really started kicking butt and the […]

Mortal Kombat Netherrealm Journey on Atari 2600 Work in Progress

Everyone that is reading this knows that Mortal Kombat never saw release on the Atari 2600.  If you didn’t, now you do.  That has not stopped indie developer and Atari Age forum member, Facemeat, from creating an action adventure title set in the Mortal Kombat world for the classic Atari console.  Mortal Kombat Netherrealm Journey […]

Solve the Grandfather Paradox in Doom within Doom Mod

Okay, this is a rather funny/unique mod to be writing about, especially after the announcement that a “selfie stick” was added to id Software’s classic Doom title.  This is basically the game of Doom being played in the game of Doom and it is also possibly answering the Grandfather paradox once and for all.

The Vectrex Goes to Hell with Doom Port

Doom, a title released in 1993, was never intended to be playable on something like the Vectrex but thanks to homebrew developers, it is.  This is what happens homebrew developers decide they want to see if something is possible.  The demo shown off doesn’t have enemies implemented yet and the graphics are, obviously, low quality […]

Bad Apple Ported to the Vectrex, Something that Should Technically not be Possible

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).  […]

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.  […]

Gabriel Knight, Sins of the Fathers Coming to Android Later This Month

Ah, the classic point and click adventure game.  What retrogaming fan has not at least picked one favorite in this genre and then wondered why the hell more titles like it haven’t surfaced?  For me, that is probably Maniac Mansion, first experienced on the Nintendo Entertainment System.  I need to revisit Gabriel Knight: Sins of […]
