Hollow Knight Looks to Re-Invent 2D Side Scrolling Action Games, After a Little Help From You

Remember the good old days when 2D action games rocked the gaming world on a fairly regular basis? Titles such as the Mario series, Sonic, Mr. Nutz and more reminded us how great gaming was. This was before 3D took over, usually known as the launch of the Sony Playstation, and things didn’t pan out ... Read More»

Justice Beaver for Super Nintendo Will Hit Kickstarter Soon

New games for the Super Nintendo are kind of rare, unlike the Sega Dreamcast and the Neo Geo which seem to never have realized they were discontinued. Some developers are holding true though and releasing new Super Nintendo titles such as Collectorvision. Their upcoming title, Justice Beaver, has just been announced to be headed to ... Read More»

Revenge of the License: Eek! the Cat

There’s a part of me that wants so badly to give this game a pass, because “Eek! The Cat” was something I enjoyed watching in my pre-high school days. None dare call it groundbreaking, but “Eek! The Cat” was an enjoyable way to kill twenty minutes, and managed to attract an awful lot of celebrity ... Read More»

The Waste Land Brings Ghouls n Ghosts Bosses to Castlevania Looking Metroid Styled Levels

Okay, that title is a little all over the place but bear with me on this one. The Waste Land is representative of all of those titles with a possible bit of 8 Eyes mixed in for good measure- the design combination is very hard to pin down. Based on T.S. Eliot’s poem, The Waste ... Read More»

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is Coming to the Nintendo 3DS This Spring

Ever since Nintendo has been in the portable gaming market there has been a sizable demand for the popular titles from their current consoles to appear in “bite size” form. As time went on and Nintendo’s back library grew, demand slowly grew for older titles to be released on newer consoles and whatever the current ... Read More»

Revenge of the License: A Sound of Thunder

It’s a trope I’m guilty of trotting out far too often: video games based on film licenses are nothing more than excuses for some two-bit studio to make an enormous influx of money without resorting to looting armored cars or Nigerian prince email scams. And more often than not, I’m right. Wanton cash grabs by ... Read More»

Volgarr the Viking on Xbox One, PC, Mac Reminds Us of When Games Were Tough

Volgarr the Viking is a 2D side scrolling, throw your controller hard, action adventure game that is very reminiscent of the classics. Graphically, Volgarr looks similar to the Ghouls n Ghosts/Ghosts n Goblins (covered in our first issue available here) games from Capcom with a mix of Rygar from Tecmo mixed in for good measure. ...

Candlelight is 2.5D Side Scrolling Action Platform Awesomeness

Anyone that knows me knows I am into 2.5D side scrolling games from the likes of Astal and Clockwork Knight on the Sega Saturn to the reboot of Castle of Illusion or Swordigo. If it is 2.5D side scrolling action, role playing, adventuring, I will at least give it a chance. This is the reason ... Read More»

Retro Gaming Halloween Style, Part Six: Hellnight

It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes UK gamers will get games that never arrive on American shores for whatever reason. This is the case with Hellnight (known as Dark Messiah in Japan), and while it won’t top anybody’s tally of best games ever made, it belongs somewhere on your list of ‘Creepy Games to Play ...

Retro Gaming Halloween Style, Part Four: Obscure

A more aptly named game would be hard to find, since French developer Hydravision’s homage to teen horror films like Scream and The Faculty arrived on the scene with no fanfare and vanished just as quickly thanks to mediocre reviews when it got any attention at all in the gaming press. This is unfortunate because ... Read More»
