While to some the Championship Manager series (now known as Football Manager) is nothing more than a glossy spreadsheet featuring football facts, to others, it's a religion, a blessing and a curse. Knowing this, we head into the deepest cells of the databasen driven series documenting the very roots of this intricate series.
The incredibly talented Atari 2600 programmer, Sprybug, was clearly not satisfied when he ported Super Mario Bros to the Atari 2600. Just mere weeks after his prior efforts, this homebrew developer has switched sides and brought the plumber's rival, Sonic The Hedgehog, back to the past too.
Over ten years after its initial release, some of the original designers behind the Nintendo 64's controversial classic Conker's Bad Fur Day have gotten back together and recorder a multi-part commentary chronicling the events behind the scenes of one of the platform's most divisive titles.
Literally just days after having announced they were porting their Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum platformer to the Nintendo NES, The Mojon Twins have already released a downloadable ROM of Sir Ababol for the 8-bit console.
As early as 1988, Konami had created a video game parody of their software library, tasking you with the challenge of rescuing protagonists from their very own games. As crazy as it sounds, this self loathing title, Konami Wai Wai World, is one Famicom release you can now enjoy in full thanks to an English translation patch.
To think that games are still being made for a computer which has already celebrated its 30th birthday is quite something. Souls is the newest game to grace the ZX Spectrum, one which Retrobytes Productions appear to be very close to releasing.
If you're one of the few who have invested heavily in SNK's Neo Geo X Handheld, you'll be pleased to hear that more game cards are on their way. Amazon US currently has five different compilations listed which are available to pre-order, each offering three different classic Neo Geo titles.
Yet another Japanese RPG is about to hit our retro gaming backlog, as ROM hackers have translated every last drop of dialogue in Deep Dungeon III: Yuushi Heno Tabi. This Famicom exclusive dungeon crawling adventure, however, isn't for the light-hearted - so prepare for an extreme grind-fest, if that's your kind of thing?
If unfinished, beta and prototype games are your thing, another work-in-progress version of a Super Nintendo game has surfaced online for your enjoyment. This early version of Prince of Persia 2 is now available to download, sporting plenty of differences to the readily available retail version.
With Lucasarts sadly closing down earlier this year, it's only natural that Retro Gamer magazine covers the tragic news in depth. Issue #116 of our favourite gaming publication is back, featuring interviews with those who worked at the once timeless studio, alongside a much needed celebration of their classics - more than enough to keep us occupied [ … ]
If you haven't already played The Mojon Twin's fantastic home computer hit, Sir Ababol, then get ready to experience the homebrew title elsewhere soon. Having recently posted early conceptual art of the game's mock-up Nintendo NES box on Facebook, it would appear that The Mojon Twins release is heading to the 8-bit console real soon.
Similar to the homebrew version of Angry Birds, another famous video game release has been de-made for the Sega Mega Drive. Play Novel: Silent Hill, the Game Boy Advance's visual storybook retelling of the PlayStation horror has crept on the 16-bit console in style with Silent Hill: Genesis.
Last year homebrew programmer Chris Spry managed to de-make Nintendo's Super Mario Bros for the Atari 2600. This ambitious effort and tribute to the Nintendo NES classic has now been released in physical cartridge form, under the all new name, Princess Rescue - a new release limited to just 100 copies.
