Thimbleweed Park Kickstarter Maniac Mansion Monkey Island

Kickstarter: Thimbleweed Park Coming from Maniac Mansion Creators

Adventure game fans definitely know the names Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle and Monkey Island.  The real question is do you recognize the names Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick?  You should because they are the brains behind those great, iconic, adventure titles we have enjoyed for nearly 30 years.  Now, those two are back, […]

Bandit Gaming- New, Better, Mario Bros Coming to the Atari 2600

The original Mario Bros that hit the Atari 2600 was less than stellar, to be honest.  It was a serviceable version but it was lacking in many ways due to the capabilities of the hardware.  Homebrew fans are working on fixing this, near, travesty, with a new and better Mario Bros for the Atari 2600.  […]

Bandit Gaming: Owl Hunt Expands on King’s Quest V in Unique Way

Ah, the classic King’s Quest series.  A series that used to be a mainstay in gaming and a very viable reason to purchase a computer considering only one King’s Quest game was ever ported to a home console (quick, name it!).  This series started in the early days of computing and lasted up to the […]

Kickstarter: Justice Beaver for Super Nintendo Will Hit Kickstarter Soon

New games for the Super Nintendo are kind of rare, unlike the Sega Dreamcast and the Neo Geo which seem to never have realized they were discontinued.  Some developers are holding true though and releasing new Super Nintendo titles such as Collectorvision.  Their upcoming title, Justice Beaver, has just been announced to be headed to […]

Marlboro Atari Lynx retro hand held 3

Leery Licensing: Marlboro Licensed Atari Lynx, Plus Prototype Game

Atari was not scared to get out there and try weird things, like trying to convince gamers that the Jaguar was actually a 64-Bit console.  Anyhow, Atari was at least trying (Sega, I am looking your way concerning the Dreamcast).  Atari’s only hand held, the Lynx, was a decently popular device though it was, unfortunately, […]

What if Pac-Man was released today Atari 2600 IAP retro

What If: Pac-Man Was Released on Modern Platforms

The “What if” column is just that, what if’s and imaginary scenarios in gaming that we find interesting and unique.  One such scenario concerns Pac-Man.  More directly, what if Pac-Man was released on modern platforms that have Internet connectivity (I know the Atari 2600 had a modem but that was different), multiplayer (not just locally) […]

New Game: Willy the Wasp 2 Hits the ZX Spectrum Retro Computer

The ZX Spectrum, a computer that gamers like me here in the United States probably have very little experience with got a new game recently.  Willy the Wasp 2 was recently released on the Spectrum computer adding another action adventure title to its library.  The story for Willy the Wasp 2 is pretty simple, and […]

Pokemon Blue Super Nintendo retro pokedex

Hardware Hack: Super Game Boy and Pokemon Blue Inside of Super Nintendo Cartridge

Everyone knows that Pokemon never hit the Super Nintendo, regardless of the fact that it was a raging hit on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color during that console’s lifespan.  Nintendo, for some reason, never released the little creatures into the home through their, then, flagship console.  Thanks to Reddit user mmmstephen, Super Nintendo […]

Ikaruga X Texas Instruments TI-83 TI-84 Treasure Shooter

Bandit Gaming: Ikaruga Ported to the Texas Instruments TI-83 Graphing Calculator

Over 13 years ago when Treasure released Ikaruga to the world- well Japanese arcades and then the Sega Dreamcast- gamers were in awe of the graphics and challenge that Ikaruga posed.  Eventually the world got Ikaruga on the Nintendo Gamecube, Xbox Live and an enhanced version on Windows but what about those lowly retro systems […]

Pandemic Sinclair ZX81 retro computer

New Game: Pandemic Brings Gauntlet Style Dual Stick Shooting to the Sinclair ZX81

Gauntlet style shooters are not all that new, they have been around since before Gauntlet but Atari’s classic was the first to take hold, and keep it.  Pandemic is an overhead shooter that is similar to that classic arcade game but it is for the Sinclair ZX81, a computer that hit retail shelves in 1981, […]
