Hardware Review: Revo K101 Plus (Game Boy Advance Clone)

Review-Revo-K101-Plus

With or without permission from Nintendo, cloned hardware has become a common sight in the gaming world ever since the arrival of countless Famiclones in the late 80s. These production lines have since spread out to cover 16-bit systems and beyond, with the more recent offerings mimicking the Game Boy line up. One of the more recent releases in thi [ … ]

Unirally - 3 Reasons Why It's The Most Difficult Super Nintendo Game Ever

Unirally-Review

Something wonderful happened on the Super Nintendo back in the mid-nineties. In fact a lot of amazing moments derived from that 16bit King Console. Long before the days of Grand Theft Auto on the Playstation 1, DMA Designs were hard at work designing a Super Nintendo game that I deem was one of a kind...

Retro Review: Galaga Destination Earth (Sony PlayStation)

Review-Galaga-Destination-Earth

There's a late period in every consoles life that speaks in volumes at what it has achieved. This achievement is an archive, a backlog, parsonage to what has come and gone. For every great game released under the consoles life there is inevitably an average fleet of titles shouldering about on the shelves looking to bolster the systems catalogue fo [ … ]

Hardware Review: BitBoy (SD Card Ready Game Boy Printer Replacement)

Review-BitBoy-Game-Boy-Printer-SD-Card-Replacement

As technology continues to press on, a wide range of devices once fulfilling our daily needs are sadly lost to time. While the retro gaming community may still be championing their classic consoles, there are still aspects of our hobby that remain somewhat abandoned. Although only focusing on a small sector of this issue, one New York based gamer h [ … ]

Homebrew Review: 8Bit Music Power (Nintendo Famicom)

8BITMUSICPOWER

Releasing music in a bizarre or antiquated format is nothing new - just look at the tiny hand-cranked music box Mogwai released their 2004 single Tracy on; or Jack White’s decision to release a collection of his songs on a vinyl record that could only be played properly at 3rpm. There are undoubtedly even more weird and wonderfully original uses [ … ]

Retro Review: Blood II: The Chosen (PC)

Review-Blood-II-The-Chosen

Not every 3D-shooter had the same success as the critically-acclaimed Quake series. Monolith hastily cranked out a sequel to the super-violent, cult-classic Blood, a Duke Nukem 3D-like shooter with bucket-loads of giblets, horror references and dark humour. It was a challenging game, featuring maze-like levels ranging from raided urban areas to bar [ … ]

Brett Weiss is a man who loves lists. He also loves games, and it was only a matter of time before he combined these passions and nature took its course. The product of several thousand hours’ worth of research, the Classic Home Video Games series of books has been available for some time but it is only now that I’ve had the opportunity to get ho [ … ]

Review-GPD-XD-Android-Gaming-Tablet

From the early days of NESticle offering Nintendo NES action on 486 computers, emulation has always been something I’ve followed closely. The ability to have our gaming past on newer platforms has always been a fantastic asset to retro gamers, and the perfect excuse to avoid digging out and hooking up your consoles in the attic.

Homebrew Review: The Ghost Blade (Sega Dreamcast)

Review-The-Ghost-Blade-Dreamcast-Homebrew

The Sega Dreamcast is no stranger to aftermarket releases. The console which many view as having gone too soon holds what could be described as the most active homebrew scene around - with a handful of new games arriving on the platform each year.
