Those who closely follow the homebrew scene will already be familiar with last year's fantastic ZX Spectrum release known as Endless Forms Most Beautiful. This frantic arcade platformer with a twist has now headed to the Commodore Amiga, not only sporting new graphics and audio, but a new name too - The Incredible Adventures of Moebius Go [ … ]
While modern gamers may seem to be the ones most anticipating the upcoming Oculus Rift virtual reality gaming headset, there's actually a good reason why retro gamers should also look towards this futuristic kit. One early adopter of the development kit has been making the most of it by emulating fabled Nintendo Virtual Boy games in true 3D.
Flashback HD may well have been the most impressive announcement made by Ubisoft earlier today at Spring 2013 Digital Days, but there was another iconic classic getting the remake treatment that was sadly overshadowed - Jordan Mechner's 1993 cinematic platformer, Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame.
Often dubbed the worst game of all time, Superman for the Nintendo 64 has gained one of the worst reputations of all time in the gaming world, and quite rightly so. Mediocrity aside, an early prototype version of Titus Software's fabled game has surfaced online, which believe it or not, some are claiming to be better than the retail release.
In the late 90s Nintendo released a perfect port of their physical deck-duelling epic, the Pokemon Trading Card Game. The Neo Geo Pocket Color's equivalent, SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash, however, remained a digital only battle - at least until one fanatic decided to replicate the entire game in a desirable collectable card set.
Yet another port of the Sonic The Hedgehog is heading your way, however, this time round this is one you want to keep your eye on. After successfully (and impressively) porting Sonic CD to touchscreen devices, Sega have once again called upon Christian Whitehead to give this timeless Mega Drive classic the port it deserves.
Yet another game from the never-ending vault of untranslated Japanese RPGs has been localised for English speaking audiences. Majin Eiyuuden Wataru Gaiden, the 1990 Nintendo Famicom action-RPG developed by Westone (based upon the anime series of the same name), has received the much needed fan translation treatment.
