Akira-Game-Boy-Prototype-Revealed

As many will tell you, the lack of a decent game based on the cult classic anime Akira is somewhat criminal. While the Japanese did see a text-based adventure game starring Kanedo and Tetsuo on the Nintendo Famicom, Western gamers were stuck with the abysmal Commodore Amiga offering from Ice – one which saw some […]


Unholy-Night-Announced-For-Super-Nintendo

The era in which we started our adventure into the world of gaming is a tough one to let go of. While this may hold true for gamers, it would also appear that there are several ‘retro’ developers who are also eager to keep their programming past alive – so much so that former-SNK employees […]

A fallen warrior is woken from the eternal slumber of death and tasked with ridding the land of hordes of foetid, rotting aberrations summoned by the evil Lord Vroll. Reluctantly, the grizzled and battle weary Bathoryn dons his armour and grips his heavy sword once again, and turns into the blistering wind. Thunder and lightning […]

You may recall 8Bit Music Power, the chip tune music album that was released on a Famicom cartridge earlier in 2016. The slightly bizarre (yet effortlessly cool) format made the album a bit of a niche item and probably turned many people off, seeing as you need either a Famicom or a Retron 5 (other […]

The Atari Jaguar very nearly played host to a port of of Midway’s Mortal Kombat 3, and rumours suggest that it was actually finished before being cancelled. Unfortunately, the hole left in the system’s library by the disappearance of John Tobias and Ed Boon’s highly acclaimed 2D brawler was only partly plugged by copycat titles […]

Almost every gaming platform powerful enough to cope with the sprite-based id Tech engine plays host to a port of Doom.

The Amiga is one of the most popular home computers. It easily overtook its competitor the Atari ST and with good reason. With many standout games from all types of genre as well as an amazing demo scene showing off what music and video the Amiga was capable of, it’s hardly surprising it has so […]


Sensible-World-of-Soccer-16-17-Data-Update

If Fifa 17 has left you feeling more deflated than England’s performance against Iceland, it might just be time to return to the golden era of the beautiful game. While the likes of Shearer, Gascoigne and Seaman might be missing today, fans of Sensible World of Soccer can once again relive their youth with an […]


BennVenn-Backlit-Game-Boy-Color-Prototype-Kit

As much as we love the Game Boy Color it’s safe to say that the lack of light behind the handheld’s screen makes for some frustrating gaming. While some retro gamers have managed to illuminate the console’s visuals through front lights stripped from a Game Boy Advance SP, a more impressive backlit solution appears to […]
