Rebound ZX81 Breakout Retro Retrogaming Game Bobs Stuff

Give My Regards to Broad Street box art

The 1980s were such an innocent era for interactive entertainment, especially when it came to the home computer. Machines like the Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum were all the rage, but nobody had quite figured out just what you were supposed to do with them yet. Since there wasn’t the Internet to rain hate and […]

Battle Tank 3D ZX spectrum retro shooter retrogaming game 2

The ZX Spectrum has been getting quite a bit of love from homebrew developers lately.  Take Battle Tank 3D for example which is basically a 3rd person take on the classic Battlezone game.  Gabriele Amore has taken the daunting task of making something original on the Spectrum (think just how hard that is) and came […]

Friday the 13th box

Yes, retro gaming fans, it’s another “Revenge of the License” column.  Last week we checked out the first James Bond adventure for the home computer, A View to a Kill.  Today we’re jumping into the horror genre to look at Friday the 13th.  But not that one.  Nooooo.  As much as I love the NES […]

Revenge of the License: A View to a Kill

View to a Kill box

While Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64 is likely the first title to pop to mind when someone brings up James Bond video games, it’s far from the first game to make use of the license.  And while A View to a Kill doesn’t hold this distinction either (that goes to the more simply-named James Bond […]

Janosik_0

Games starring a Polish Highlander don’t come along every day that is why Janosik is so interesting. Having just hit the ZX Spectrum, Janosik is interesting as the backstory makes him sound like a Robin Hood of sorts. In this new game for the Spectrum, players are tasked with saving Janosik’s love, Maryna, from the […]
