Retro Review: Ghoul Panic (Sony Playstation 1)

While the showcase titles for the Playstation's G-Con 45- the best light-gun ever- were Time Crisis and the Point Blank series, no-one ever seemed to give much notice to Ghoul Panic, probably because it was Point Blank's slightly scarier 3D cousin. Is it worth a shot?

Retro Review: Motocross Maniacs (Nintendo Game Boy)

One of the earliest Game Boy releases (and the first from Konami), Motocross Maniacs is what every portable-born game should be, as far as I'm concerned- easy to grasp and not too time-consuming, but great to dip into for five or ten minutes for a quick challenge while waiting for a train.

Indie Review: Tower of Heaven (Flash)

In those moments where work is meant to be our top priority, there is always a distracting game a click away. Only a few offer the same grip on us once in the comfort of our home, Tower of Heaven being one of the latter manages to offer an addictive and nostalgic handheld-esque experience.

Retro Review: Master of Darkness

MoD coverCastlevania is a game that is mentioned a lot in the retro gaming press. It’s a classic title that has stood the test of time and continues to excite gamers. Spare a thought then for fans of Sega’s Master System console as Konami never released their game – in any capacity – on Sega’s little 8-bit machine. However, hope shone through in the form of [ … ]

Modern Review: DeathSmiles: Deluxe Edition (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Four years after the original arcade release and just under two years after the Japanese home port, Europe finally gets to play DeathSmiles courtesy of Rising Star Games. Don't be fooled by the character art, though- this is a man's game dressed in a frilly pink maid oufit. Honest.

Retro Review: Crisis Beat (Sony Playstation 1)

Developed by Soft Machine and released in Europe in 2000, Crisis Beat dropped straight into obscurity upon release over here, which is a shame- it's a flawed but generally well-executed 3D scrolling brawler with some neat ideas.

Retro Review: Rainbow Islands Putty's Party (Bandai WonderSwan)

Rainbow-Islands-Puttys-Party-bandai-WonderSwan-Retro-ReviewDespite being one of the most iconic arcade games of all time, Rainbow Islands holds a somewhat unknown port hiding amongst the praise. Rainbow Islands: Putty's Party arrived on the Bandai WonderSwan in Japan and remained an exclusive treasure for retro importers.

Retro Review : Blue Stinger (Sega Dreamcast)

They say that imitation is the best form of flattery. Judging by Blue Stinger, Climax Graphics had been playing a lot of Resident Evil and Tomb Raider, sadly they may not have been paying full attention.

One of many, many wannabe Nintendo Game Boys, let's take a look at the Quickshot's Supervision, because why not?

Modern Review: Ghost Squad (Arcade/Nintendo Wii)

You'd think Sega's AM2 division would be content knowing they'd made a classic light-gun series with the Virtua Cop trilogy, but in 2004 they released Ghost Squad, one of the best arcade light-gun games in years. Ported to the Wii three years later by Polygon Magic, it still holds up admirably.

Retro Review : Sonic Adventure (Sega Dreamcast)

Every new console needs a game, the killer app, to wow the audience and convince them to part with their hard earned cash. The Sega Dreamcast was no different and this task fell to Sega’s favoured child, Sonic the Hedgehog.
