Modern Review - Sega Vintage Collection: ToeJam & Earl


Although it’s already been available for a little while, SEGA’s latest Sega Vintage Collection seems to have been sadly overlooked by Joe Public. Now we here at RetroCollect can’t let that happen – so we take a slightly belated look at the two classic nineties titles in a bit more detail.

Break out your 80s hair, cassette players and sore arcade fingers: Double Dragon is back. But is this revisit to the golden years of beat-‘em-ups worth your time and money?

Modern Review: Jet Set Willy (Xbox 360 Live Arcade)


Manic Miner and the Miner Willy games have wooed their way onto the Spectrum, and now the second iteration of the franchise has been reborn as an Xbox Live Indie title.

Modern Review: Sinclair ZX Spectrum 100 Greatest Hits HD iOS


When I was at school all those years ago, the biggest debate that raged in my circle had nothing to do with football, but everything to do with the Spectrum or C64. Fast forward to today, can all the disputation in the past be settled with an iPad application?

On paper, Kale In Dinoland on iOS is a nice – if niche – concept. A loving homage to the black and white Game Boy platformers of the 90’s, it had the potential to rekindle the nostalgia of retro gamers and allow the younger audience to see what they missed out on.

Modern Review: FireFly Vegas (Xbox 360)


With the demise of Bizarre Creations, I was saddened by the thought that I would never see another Geometry Wars title be created.
