Super Nintendo Brawler ‘Iron Commando’ Cartridge Re-Release Nears Funding Target on IndieGoGo

Iron-Commando-on-IndieGoGo

In 1995 the belt-scrolling brawler Iron Commando smashed on the Super Famicom. Although packing quite the punch and satisfying fans of the genre, It’s safe to say that the game arrived a little too late to impress those who had seen it all with the Final Fight series. Whilst remaining a Japanese exclusive for quite some time, the neo-retro publishe [ … ]

BennVenn-Game-Boy-Advance-TV-Out-Prototype

For those of us who strongly believe the Game Boy Advance is nothing more than a portable Super Nintendo, having the ability to play the handheld’s strong line-up on a TV is priceless. While the GameCube’s Game Boy Player may be a suitable solution, die-hards retro gamers tend to disagree due to all kinds of timing issues and inaccuracies. This is [ … ]

Yippee ki yay! It looks like yet another cancelled Nintendo 64 game has been discovered - this time it's the mythical Die Hard 64 from Bits Studios.

Cancelled Arcade Game 'Primal Rage II' Now Playable With MAME

primalrage21

Primal Rage garnered a moderate level of success when it hit arcades in the early 1990s, and in subsequent years Atari's prehistoric brawler was ported to pretty much every contemporary home console (and a coupe of handheld ones, too). The ports came with varying degrees of arcade accuracy, but for the most part were deemed to be worthy alternati [ … ]

NBA-Jam-2K17-ROM-Hack-for-Super-Nintendo

What’s not to love about NBA Jam? Despite its age, the two on two match-up has stood the test of time with its fast paced action and hilarious multiplayer gameplay. Knowing how well regarded the game is it should come as no surprise that fans have unofficially updated the game to feature this year’s roster.

Backlit-Game-Boy-Color-on-TaoBao

Several months ago there was some impressive progress made in Game Boy modification circles after hardware hacker BennVenn managed to get the Game Boy Color running through a Game Boy Advance SP screen.

Android App ‘MSX2Cas’ Brings Tape Loading Via Headphone Jack To The MSX Computers

MSX2Cas-Tape-Image-Loader

In recent times some retro gamers have converted old iPods into ZX Spectrum tape emulators by converting tape images of games into audio files. By playing the high pitched noise through the headphone jack and back into the micro-computer, the ZX Spectrum is none the wiser that modern technology is feeding it data rather than a traditional cassette [ … ]

Digital-Code-Wheel-Copy-Protection

While DRM today may been seen as overly aggressive and frustrating, copy protection methods of yesteryear actually brought along some charm whilst keeping the pirates at bay. One of the more notable examples of this was the code wheel - a collection of layered card held together by a split pin with windows revealing secret codes underneath. Althoug [ … ]

Unreleased Nintendo 64 Game 'Riqa' Discovered

riqa1

Back in the late 1990s, while Lara Croft was happily raiding tombs on pretty much every platform you could shake a stick at (even the maligned N-Gage got a port of Tomb Raider), Nintendo fans could have been forgiven for feeling a little left out.

Watara-Supervision-Emulator-Wataroo-Released

While the Nintendo Game Boy may have ruled the handheld roost in the early nineties, it didn’t stop the many efforts from a wide range of companies to dethrone the portable king. Watara were one of the bold companies copying the Game Boy’s ethos, however, their cheap alternative - the SuperVision - came across as a little too cheap, and quickly fad [ … ]
