Retro Review: Shadow Warrior: Wanton Destruction (PC)


Lo Wang is Duke Nukem's brother from another mother, a master ninja with a tendency to slice up foes with his katana whilst cracking cheesy, and often racist, one-liners. Shadow Warrior was a smashing game from the late '90s, despite lacklustre sales. Surprising, considering how well 3D Realms profited from its blockbuster game Duke Nukem 3D. Its a [ … ]

Retro Review: Cyber Lip (Neo Geo AES)

Cyber-lip web

I recently got into the Neo Geo scene by acquiring a friend’s collection. I now have 30 Neo Geo AES games and an AES console with 2 joysticks. I invited a friend over to try some of the games out, since most of them are co-op, and the first game we played through was a game called Cyber-Lip.

Modern Review: Retrospecs (iOS)

IMG 0082

Camera apps for iOS devices are pretty common on Apple's App Store. The sheer number of them is bewildering, and they all profess to add something new to your photos - be that new frames, colours or tints. Until now though, being able to simulate how your images would look if displayed through retrogaming hardware has been sorely missing from our [ … ]

Retro Review: I.M. Meen (PC DOS)


Believe it or not, I.M. Meen was more than just material for YouTube Poop mash-up videos. Believe it or not, it was a GAME! An educational game, at that, with the intention of making children learn about proper spelling and grammar. It was developed by Animation Magic and published by Simon and Schuster Interactive in 1995, and was intended to be r [ … ]

Retro Review: Super Back to the Future 2 (Super Famicom)


Why are so many film licensed games rubbish? That question is down to personal taste and preference of course, but the homogeneous lump of us are generally in agreement that movie tie ins are a load of old trousers. The LJN games of 8 and 16-bit lore are synonymous with being mediocre and were thrust into the limelight with the rise of the Angry Vi [ … ]

Review: OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood (PS Vita)


Roll7’s OlliOlli was something of a surprise when it hit the PS Vita early last year. A mix of simple yet heavily stylised cartoon visuals and reaction-based gameplay, it was a game that came out of the blue but almost single-handedly revolutionised how a skateboarding game should be done on a handheld system.

Modern Review: Game Dev Story (Android / iOS)


To confess, I am a bit of a sim nut: Sim City, Theme Park, Gansters: Organised Crime and more recently I have sunk my gnashers into Prison Architect (personal tip on the latter - build a fence first...) But apart from the sublime indie Xbox Live game Arcade Craft, I have had an itch for a video game sim that I couldn't scratch. Game Dev Story by Ka [ … ]

Retro Review: The Lost Episodes of Doom (Map Expansion Pack)


The popularity of Doom back in 1993 on-wards was immense. When id Software released the map-making tools for the public to craft their own levels so they may battle the flesh-eating demons within their own creations, small-name companies tried to crank out their own unofficial expansions for the game. Out of the bowels of Sybex Incorporated came th [ … ]

Review: S.T.U.N. Runner (Arcade)


Welcome to future of racing, ladies and gentlemen! S.T.U.N Runner (Spread Tunnel Underground Network Runner from 1989), developed by Atari Games, features a speed bike that can topple up to speeds of 900mph, but swarms of enemies await to keep brave racers from completing each race in one piece! Are there any speed-demons out there willing to bolt [ … ]

Book Review: The Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works


Over the last few years we’ve seen an incredible rise in the number of retro gaming fan projects materialising following the arrival of Kickstarter. From brand new Nintendo NES games to HDMI upgrades for the Game Boy, all kinds of ideas are getting the support they deserve due to this revolutionary way of funding creativity. Amidst all these fantas [ … ]
