Papi Commando Tennis Work in Progress for Sega Genesis

Okay, it is becoming quite clear that Papi Commando is going to be around awhile.  Vetea, the developer of the PC franchise, is keeping his little geriatric character moving forward.  First, we saw him in a Commando style action game (hence the name).  Since then he went onto star in another action game and now […]

Saint_Sword_Sega_Genesis_Taito_Rastan_action_fantasy

Taito Releases Their Version of Rastan Called Saint Sword – Today in Retro Gaming – June 27th, 1991

What do you do when someone else has a really popular title?  Why, you copy it as best you can.  That is apparently what Taito did in the early 90’s when they released Saint Sword for the Sega Genesis.  They followed the idea of Rastan as best they could but as with most copycats, they […]

Okay PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One gamers, you can now grab Pac Man 256 and enjoy it just like mobile gamers have.  That is right, the endless runner that actually makes sense is now available on more platforms.  This is the mobile game but bigger and better (especially if you had a smaller screen […]

Sonic Brings Speed to Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – June 23rd, 1991

Sega were in a dire situation when they were pushing their Genesis console in 1991.  The Super Nintendo (SNES) release was looming in North America after a quite successful launch in Japan.  Sega was hurting.  Nintendo had Mario and it was well known that Super Mario World was going to be the pack-in title with […]

Shadow Gangs Hitting Kickstarter Soon Reminds Fans of Shinobi, Demo Available

Okay, I know we throw around the whole “reminds” thing around a lot.  That is because retro gaming is pretty much all about reminding fans of something from the past.  This can be using a familiar music segment, certain art style or genre.  Shadow Gangs is one such title that will definitely remind fans of […]

Swabby_Game_Gear_Sega_Master_System_shooter

Swabby Homebrew Independent Sega Game Gear Shooter Released

Scrolling shooters.  You are probably tired of me bringing up that the heyday of this genre being long gone.  That is fine.  It seems to be working.  We are seeing more scrolling shooting games pop up from the independent developer world.  That makes me happy.  I mean, I still for the most part suck at […]

Streets of Rage 2 title screen

7 Cool Streets of Rage 2 Hacks

Streets of Rage 2 is one of those titles that fans simply will not allow to die.  That is great because the game is quite good.  While the original is good, fans have taken the character selection a few steps beyond what Sega ever thought of.  Buckle up sunshine, this is going to be a […]

Sega Genesis Receives Zelda Clone Crusader of Centy – Today in Retro Gaming – June 16th, 1994

Nintendo had the Legend of Zelda series since the 8-Bit days.  Sega kind of was lacking in the action game with light role playing elements category.  Sure, Sega had the Phantasy Star series but that was more of an answer to Square’s Final Fantasy series than Zelda.  It took until June 1994 before there was […]

Game Boy Receives Cowboys Game Guns and Riders

The old west is a place that many wish we could go back to.  While I am not sure why, it is a popular time period.  Gamers have barely touched the genre thanks to not many developers and publishers making games based in the old west.  Sure, we got Gunsmoke on the Nintendo (zapper game) […]

Adidas Championship Football Amstrad CPC Review

The 2016 UEFA European Championship tournament is underway right now, unfortunately it is getting more attention for the fan  violence off the pitch than the actual competition. So to cast our minds away from all of that craziness, focus on the football and i look back at a soccer / football game released during the time […]
