According to various sources online, an unusual arcade machine found itself in the depths of a North American town in the 1980s. Unlike other cabinets, Polybius was reported to have given gamers side effects from night terrors to sudden death. As farfetched as this may round, the urban legend lives on and it’s about to see its very own documentary. [ … ]
Originally released back in 1994, Super Shell Monsters Story (also known as Daikaijū Monogatari) was a Japanese exclusive adventure for the Super Nintendo published by Hudson Soft. Although proving popular enough to see its very own manga series, the title never left the Far East - at least until now. ROM hackers have finally released a patch for S [ … ]
If you’re yet to experience the RetroN 5, Hyperkin’s all-in-one system is a fantastic offering for retro gamers with limited space. Although equipped with five different cartridge slots compatible with up to nine different systems, it would appear a newer system on the horizon is about to go one better. The newly announced Retro Freak from Cyber Ga [ … ]
In a similar style to the recently announced Banjo-Kazooie sequel, Metroid also looks set to receive yet another entry in the series, albeit an unofficial one. Metroid: Rogue Dawn is a newly announced prequel built from the ground up by hacking the Nintendo NES original and adding in some stunning new visuals and fantastic features.
For many the likes of Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie are the definitive 3D platformers. While the genre may no longer be as popular as it once was, various projects such as the recent Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter are hoping to revive those magical moments - as are Nintendo 64 ROM hackers too. The recently announced Banjo-Kazooie Returns is an un [ … ]
We've all played the games, but do you have them on your wall? Sega recently teamed up with next-gen art dealers Cook & Becker to release a limited edition print run of new artwork celebrating some of their much loved titles. Capturing the essence of Streets of Rage, Phantasy Star, and even Jet Set Radio in an artistic form, those of you lookin [ … ]
There are, perhaps surprisingly, a handful of retro gaming shops scattered across Dorset - with one of the largest being Warez in Winton. Opened in 2013, I personally stumbled into it completely by accident – only realising it existed due to spotting a R.O.B. in the window and investigating further. Near the end of the high street it has gaine [ … ]
Following on from two very successful Kickstarter projects, the team behind Bitmap Books are back and gearing up yet another retro gaming fundraiser. Having already covered both the Commodore 64 and Amiga at great length through detailed screenshots, mini reviews, and exclusive interviews, it would appear another classic home computer is due the wo [ … ]
While the United Kingdom has been enjoying a vast array of retro gaming events, it would also appear that the rest of Europe has been too. Since 2010 there has been a yearly retro gaming convention in Gothenburg, Sweden, called Retrospelsmässan (“Retrospel” means retro games and “Mässa” means exhibition in Swedish) which has grown bigger and b [ … ]
Having already released a selection of new titles for the Dreamcast, Hucast Games are back with yet another promising announcement. Following on from their 2014 release of Redux: Dark Matters, the retro developer has just confirmed that the scrolling shooter series is back with an all new sequel for Sega's console.
The Neo Geo CD was SNK's attempt to make arcade perfect gaming more affordable to the masses. Although pocket-priced, the console's ports of AES and MVS classics such as Metal Slug and King of Fighters 98 came with a slight downside - longer loading times. One positive to the system though was its small selection of exclusive releases including Cro [ … ]
Super Metroid is often praised for its lonely and atmospheric feel which is communicated through an incredible soundtrack by Kenji Yamamoto and Minako Hamano. Even today the game's audio holds up rather well and further proves how powerful the Super Nintendo's soundchip really was. Paying tribute to the composers, fans of the series have made their [ … ]
Originally announced back in 2013, The Legends of Owlia has been in development for quite some time, but the long wait is now proving its worth. Gradual Games have just released a new trailer for their upcoming Nintendo NES homebrew adventure and it sure is showing promise. Heavily drawing inspiration from The Legend of Zelda, fans of the 8-bit sys [ … ]
Back in 1994, Nintendo released their second Super FX enabled game on the Super Nintendo, Stunt Race FX. A racing game that, like Star Fox, was co-developed by Argonaut Software and featured full 3D polygon graphics not normally seen on 16bit systems. Unlike Star Fox though, Stunt Race FX seems to be barely mentioned within social media sites, and [ … ]
When Quake entered the gaming scene, PC gamers dropped their jaws in amazement. It combined brand new 3D-graphics with the simple shooting mechanics of Doom, albeit with better scripted events. Topping it off was a combination of science-fiction and medieval themes, as well as a skin-crawling soundtrack by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Just unde [ … ]
