New Jaguar Game in the Works Called JagZombies

Do you know what you get when fans figure out how to make games for their favorite consoles? You get stuff that is unique, often quite different than what was released commercially.

My Favorite Gaming Hidden Gems, Part One: Snoopy and the Red Baron (1983, Aari 2600)

I’ve been playing and collecting video games since the early 1980’s, and while there’s something to be said for enjoying the greats of the gaming world, there’s no better feeling for me than picking out something I’d never heard of, throwing it into my system, and being unable to tear myself away from it because […]

The Black Sheep of Horror Gaming: Abadox

When Halloween slips around, you have tons of choices for hosting a retro-themed scare-a-thon on your big screen. It’s easy to dive straight into the likes of Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill 2, or even Friday the 13th.

Apocalypse Max Review – Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

The zombie apocalypse is a popular point in fiction.  We have seen this event play out in movies, books, cartoons and television shows among many other facets of entertainment.  Particularly in video games this is a popular vantage point to play from.  We have seen it in Resident Evil and in many other games.  Apocalypse […]

Bandit Gaming – Gradius Sees ColecoVision Release by AtariAge

Gradius is one of the iconic side scrolling shooting games that Konami kind of dropped the ball on repeatedly over the years.  Sure, there were over 15 releases in the series across many platforms but the last, swan song if you will, released in 2011 was a pachislot game.  What a shame, Konami.  What a […]

Axelay Gives Gamers Both Kinds of Shooters on Super Nintendo – Today in Retro Gaming – September 14th, 1992

Back in the day scrolling shooters were a dime a dozen.  To stand out from the crowd you had to have something unique in your shooter.  Just being a side or horizontal scroll shooter was not enough anymore.  Konami was, at this time, kicking butt with their other games- Castlevania IV, Contra III etc.  They […]

The Fifteen Most Difficult Genesis Games (That Are Not Battletoads)

Last year we held a combination shouting match/kumite among the staff to determine the fifteen hardest NES games, discounting Battletoads. In the end, two things happened. First, you all made it the most-read, most-shared column we’ve ever published–you rock! Second, the local hospital told us if we pulled a stunt like that again, they would ‘accidentally’ […]

Bomb on Basic City for Sega Genesis Released on Cartridge

Back in June I covered the release of Bomb on Basic City, a new Sega Genesis game by the guy that created Papi Commando.  For those not familiar with Bomb on Basic City, the premise is simple- you control the speed of a plane and dropping bombs on the city below destroying it.  Now, fans […]

R-Type III Third Lightning Blows Up Super Nintendo – Today in Retro Gaming – August 2nd, 1994

The Super Nintendo was known for slow down when trying to put a lot of action on the screen.  This was most apparent in scrolling shooters (horizontal and vertical) such as Gradius III.  By the time R-Type III Third Lightning came around developers pretty much had the SNES hardware figured out.  It helped just a […]
