Bandit Gaming- Danger Mouse to Make a Return to Gaming on the Commodore Amiga

Danger Mouse, a cartoon from the late 80’s/early 90’s is making his return to gaming thanks to AmigaPD.  This new title is a graphical text adventure title starring the British mouse and his sidekick, Penfold.  So far, this is definitely a work in progress.  It looks like the graphics are taken from stills of the […]

New Game: Vectrex Receives Two Christmas Themed Games

Throughout gaming there have been only a few “dedicated” Christmas games released.  There was Christmas Nights on the Sega Saturn and there is a Christmas themed Jazz Jackrabbit game, I believe.  That is pretty much it.  Sure there are games that feature ice levels and the like but not too many that have a snowy, […]

Game Hack: Castlevania 2 Hacked to Become Pyronaut on Nintendo Entertainment System

We have not covered a lot of new Nintendo Entertainment System games lately so here is a good one to kick things off again.  Pyronaut by Optomon, featuring graphics by M-Tee is a 2D side scrolling action shooter in the style of Konami’s Contra which is sort of fitting since the developer is using Castlevania […]

New Game: Castle Raider for the Acorn Electron and BBC Micro Released

We have not covered a BBC Micro or Acorn Electron game here on Retro Gaming Magazine yet.  Better sooner than later, right?  Castle Raider is a new game for both of those computer platforms that is a 2D side scrolling action platform game tasking you with exploring a dark dank castle that is full of […]

Snatcher MSX2 December 13th 1988 retro digital comic visual novel retrogaming

Become a JUNKER in Neo Kobe City with Snatcher – Today in History – December 13th 1988

Snatcher is a game that, at the time of release in North America, was one of the first of a small genre which has not progressed much in the two plus decades since.  We covered Snatcher in our second issue of Retro Gaming Magazine, along with many other worthy titles.  While visual novels/digital comics are […]

Game Hack: Diablo 1 in HD Modification

Diablo, the original one, was released quite a while back, December 1996- nearly 18 years ago.  Back then, HD was not around, at least not in North America (I believe it was thriving quite well in Japan), but that has not stopped a dedicated game hacker from creating an HD version of Diablo.  Not only […]

Blow Your Friends Up in Super Bomberman 2 for Super Nintendo – Today in History – December 12th, 1994

There simply are not enough two, or more, player games available on retro platforms.  Sure, today gamers have online multiplayer everything from racing to shooters to role playing games.  Retro gaming fans have had to resort to actually getting in the same room with each other to battle it out (of course, there are emulators […]

Defender of the Crown Cinemaware retro strategy amiga iphone itunes (1)

New Game: Defender of the Crown on Commodore Amiga Returns to iTunes App Store

Defender of the Crown holds the honor as being Cinemaware’s first game.  This feat is made even more compelling when you see the graphics, hear the sounds and play it on the Commodore Amiga.  Add the fact that Defender of the Crown was released in 1986 and then the game takes on a very interesting […]

Super Wolfenstein 3D PewDiePie First Person Shooter 2

Bandit Gaming: Super Wolfenstein 3D Brings Ragdoll Physics to id Software Classic

Okay, Doom just turned 21 (as evidenced here) so I figure it is a good time to do some coverage of a new version of Wolfenstein 3D.  This version was created for the PewDiePie Jam where developers only have 72 hours, or so, to develop their game from start to finish.  What sets Super Wolfenstein […]

Doom 1993 First Person Shooter id Software retro December 10th 3

Go To Hell in Doom – Today in History – December 10th, 1993

When id Software released Doom they probably didn’t expect it to take off like it did.  Previously they did a lot of other games that weren’t nearly as big and the moderately successful Wolfenstein 3D.  The point is, everything prior to Doom was nowhere near as popular.  Doom expanded upon the graphics conveyed in Wolfenstein […]
