Midnight-Run-PS1

With a strong back catalogue such as Konami's, you expect nothing but the best. Midnight Run is an arcade port of one of their racing games, released the same year as the fantastic 'Streets of Rage meets Outrun' racer; Ray Tracers. But it might be the one Konami would rather forget.

Retro Review: Pu.Li.Ru.La (Arcade)

Do you want a different scrolling brawler experience? Are you tired of the Final Fight clones that littered the arcades in the 90s, with their run-down cities and no-good street punks? Want something that wasn't developed by Capcom or Konami? You'd better give Taito a call.

Rockman-X3-Sega-Mega-Drive-Pirate

Sega consoles are not well known for having a selection of Mega Man games. With a only a few Blue Bomber games available on three different platforms, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the pirates decided to cash in on the absence.

Retro Gaming Review: Nekketsu Oyako Hot Blooded Family

Nekketsu-Oyako-Hot-Blooded-Family-Sony-Playstation-1

If you were to ask a new Sony PlayStation owner which game they were most looking forward to, I’m pretty sure the last thing they would say is ‘Hot Blooded Family (Thermal Blood - Parent Child)’ aka Nekketsu Oyako.

Retro Review: Pop n' Pop (Sony PlayStation)

If any company had a stranglehold on the puzzle genre in the arcades in the 90s, it was Taito. They churned those things out constantly, and it's no wonder that at least a few of them fell into obscurity...
