Review – Sam Mallard Case of the Missing Swan for the ZX Spectrum

Text adventures and I go way back.  From classics like Zork to The Hobbit to The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, I have enjoyed text adventures for almost three decades now.  Then came the graphical text adventure which The Hobbit could be viewed as an early precursor of, and it was only getting better in […]

Fans Work to Translate Shadowrun for Mega CD to English

Fan translations are a grey area of sorts for gamers.  Technically they are not illegal as the patch breaks no laws simply by existing.  The illegal activity comes from the fact that you have to use the patch with a copy of the game it is for.  Many will claim that the law allows for […]

Snatcher Being Ported to Nintendo Virtual Boy by Homebrew Developer

Snatcher, the digital comic that simply did not take off in North America like Konami would have liked.  Honestly, I cannot feign not understanding why it didn’t sell well.  First it was only available for an add-on device, the Sega CD, which did not exactly set sales records in the United States.  Second, it was […]

Retro Gaming Magazine #2 Preview and Cover Reveal

We have had to hold back releasing the cover of our second issue as we worked with the artist to get it just right (great art doesn’t just happen). With our second issue we will continue our efforts to feature content that other publications avoid. As usual, this issue will be 40 pages and is […]

Playing detective and solving crimes is always fun. There is a reason that television shows like Matlock, Law & Order, CSI, Murder She Wrote and more are so popular. People like solving crimes and following the complex stories that surround the mystery. Gaming is no different really. Gamers enjoy the occasional good mystery- just look […]
