Hardware Review: The Eagle Box (Android Emulation Console)

Review-Eagle-Box-Android-Console

Over the last few years the Android operating system has opened up a whole new realm of affordable gaming options. With Google's policy on what applications are allowed on their digital store being incredibly relaxed, and the ability to manually install software, the platform has become a modern haven for emulators and retro gamers. As a result, a [ … ]

Obscure Hardware: Discovering The Sharp MZ-700 Computer

Sharp-MZ700-Obscure-Hardware-Review

Recently I found myself eyeing up another fellow collector's purchase - the Sharp X68000, a Japanese home computer known for its incredible shoot-em-ups and near perfect arcade ports. It's a stylish looking system, with its outer case resembling that of a sleek gaming skyscraper. Trouble is, the system is not only rare, but also quite expensive. Ga [ … ]

Modern Review: Active Soccer 2 DX (PS Vita)

active1

Ever since Electronic Arts stopped releasing its FIFA games on the Vita, soccer fans have had little to get excited about when it comes to kicking the old pig bladder into the onion bag on Sony's handheld. Hell, Konami didn't even bother putting its Pro Evo games out on the system, full stop. The last FIFA release was FIFA 15, a re-skinned 'legac [ … ]

Modern Review: Slain: Back from Hell (PS Vita)

slainTITLE

A fallen warrior is woken from the eternal slumber of death and tasked with ridding the land of hordes of foetid, rotting aberrations summoned by the evil Lord Vroll. Reluctantly, the grizzled and battle weary Bathoryn dons his armour and grips his heavy sword once again, and turns into the blistering wind. Thunder and lightning crackle through t [ … ]

Review: MVS MagicKey (Neo Geo MVS To AES Adapter)

Review-Magickey-Converter

SNK's Neo Geo is famous with gamers the world over, which is surprising when you consider that in terms of pure units sold, it barely registers on the scale. The SNES and Mega Drive – the Neo Geo's contemporary rivals – outsold it by a considerable margin, yet the system still managed to attract a loyal fanbase which delighted in the fact that the [ … ]

 

Hardware Review: Everdrive GBA X5 (Game Boy Advance) Flash Cartridge

Everdrive-GBA-X5-Review

In what could be described as the most anticipated arrival from Krikzz’s retro gaming headquarters, the Ukrainian mastermind has finally released an Everdrive flash cartridge for the Game Boy Advance. Simply dubbed the Everdrive GBA X5, this modern solution for Nintendo’s 2001 handheld enters a slightly crowded market with the aim of coming out on [ … ]

 

Retrospective: NBA Jam

NBA-Jam-Retrospective

During the early 1990’s an arcade machine would grace the gaming world with a new style of sports title different than anything that had been seen before. It was a fast paced physical basketball game that anyone could pick up and play. The game was NBA Jam and the year was 1993. Midway had created a masterpiece and Acclaim did a great job of portin [ … ]

Retrospective: Rhythm Heaven Celebrates Ten Years Of Beats

Rhythm-Heaven-Retrospective

Rhythm Tengoku/Heaven/Paradise (delete as region appropriate) celebrates it’s tenth birthday today so rather than contemplate how old we are getting when what feels like a "recent" game officially becomes "retro", let’s look back at the very first game in the series to see exactly what made it so special. To really understand fully how the creators [ … ]

Youngest Retro Gamer Reviews: Sonic The Hedgehog (Sega Master System)

Youngest-Retro-Gamer-Reviews-Sonic-Master-System

With Sonic The Hedgehog turning 25 years old earlier this week, it's safe to say that as retro gamers we're slowing aging along with the games we know and love. We can talk about these timeless titles for hours on end and pour over our childhood spent with Sega and Nintendo, but how exactly would today's youth rate what we consider a classic? Here [ … ]

 

Retro Review: E.V.O.: Search for Eden (Super Nintendo)

EVO Review

Enix published some terrific hits for the Super Nintendo. ActRaiser, Terranigma, E.V.O…..wait what? What’s E.V.O you say? I’m not talking about the fighting game tournament. I’m talking about E.V.O.: Search for Eden, a hidden Super Nintendo action-RPG about the evolution of life. You are guided by Gaia, the daughter of the Sun and the Earth, to s [ … ]

Retrospective: Handheld & Bootleg 'Contra III - The Alien Wars' Ports

Contra-III-Retrospective

Contra III is wonderful. It's a game that sets a blistering pace from the moment you press start, never missing a beat in it’s 30 minute runtime. It constantly introduces new ideas to launch you forward, quite literally by the end of the fourth stage. In the first level alone you have destructible cars, a rideable tank, feral dogs and an air raid t [ … ]
