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 […]

Dragon Climax New Scrolling Brawler for PC Steam Greenlight

The early days of brawlers such as Vigilante and Kung Fu Master had a certain charm to them.  They were not as complicated as the later entries in this genre such as Final Fight and Double Dragon.  No, those early games had direct fun written all over them- none of that cheap “side stepping” that […]

5 Homebrew Titles that Push Retro Hardware

While in today’s gaming world it is nothing to see super detailed, hyper animated characters and fluid gameplay. Um, well most of those anyhow. For the rest of us, the ones that grew up on Commodore and Atari and 8-Bit graphics, we just don’t feel welcome in the gaming world of today. This is not […]

Send the Evil Back to Hell in Odallus for Windows

Alright, action adventure titles are not exactly all the rage on personal computers.  At least they are not nearly as popular on PC’s as they are on consoles.  This could be for many reasons, I like to think it is just the misconception of what types of games PC users are into.  Odallus is one […]

SEEP Universe Looks to Revive the 8-Bit Action Platform Scene on PC

The old saying “you can never have too much” was probably not mumbled thinking of 8-Bit inspired action platform games.  That doesn’t mean we can’t use it here though.  SEEP are working on releasing a full length game called SEEP World on PC.  This is a completely new, original, 2D side scrolling action platform game […]

Be the Worm in Earthworm Jim Special Edition for Sega CD – Today in History – March 15th, 1995

New intellectual properties (IP) are hard to get off the ground, this has been true for most of human consumer history.  What do you do when you have a hit though and there are multiple platforms to available?  You make a special edition that features extras not in other versions.  Movie buffs know this as […]

Rocket Man is a New Game Boy Game in Development

New Game Boy games are not exactly beating gamers over the heads.  I am going to ignore the recent news about Flappy Bird finally coming to the Game Boy here since I want to focus on games people would actually want to play.  One such title in development is Rocket Man by Imanolea’s Games.  What […]

Update- Slain Successfully Funded on Kickstarter with Time to Spare

Late last year we covered Slain, previously called 7 Towers, and how it was coming this year.  The team behind Slain have since then put the game on Kickstarter and just recently successfully passed their minimum goal.  Now Slain will finish its Kickstarter run in about 18 days so there is plenty of time to […]

Work in Progress: Leilani’s Island Mixes Nintendo Classic Platformers to Create New Inspired Adventure

How many interesting 2D side scrolling games can you name that come from homebrew developers?  Sure, we have our darker stuff with Castlevania: Spectral Interlude or Infernax but there are not many “family friendly” safe games in this category.  It is like developers automatically fall to the dark side of the game world for some […]

Review- Castlevania Spectral Interlude for ZX Spectrum

Okay, this is a tough review to write for me.  Not because it is a bad game or anything but because Castlevania Spectral Interlude is just so damned good.  While this is a fan made title, i.e. technically illegal as Konami has not licensed this version, it feels like an official Konami release.  Aleksander Udotov […]
