Review: Panorama Cotton

The Cotton games are a series of shoot ’em ups (or cute ’em ups, if you prefer) that haven’t seen much popularity outside of their native Japan. Up until this year, Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams, the franchise’s first entry, was the only one to receive a North American release on the TurboGrafx-CD in 1993, and

Review: Gleylancer

Ever since finally getting my hands on a PC Engine Duo (or, as it was known in the US, the TurboDuo), I’ve been on a bit of a shmup kick. The system is known for its absolute glut of space shooters, after all, so why not dive in and see what it actually had to

Review: Disjunction

I seem to be on a bit of a retro kick, following hot in the footsteps of our preview of Loop Hero with another retro styled title. This time we seem to be effectively moving from a mid-80s style to an early-90’s style with today’s game, Disjunction, developed by Ape Tribe Games, for most major

Preview: Loop Hero

Have you ever spent time playing an RPG-type game and you felt like you were stuck going around in circles? Well, I have some good news, because today we have a case where not only is going around in circles a good thing, it’s central to the game mechanics. Loop Hero, developed by Four Quarters

Review: Deleveled

So I was actually playing today’s game, Deleveled, 15 years ago. I played it every time my friends and I tried to kill Absolute Virtue. Oh wait, this game is new? And it’s a puzzle game, not an MMORPG? Oh right, that was Final Fantasy XI, easy mistake to make…

Review: Ion Fury

3D Realms is a company I’ve not had much personal experience with, but like most, I do know them for the Duke Nukem franchise. After hitting it big with some 2D platformers and the renowned Duke Nukem 3D, it’s been somewhat of a rough ride for the Duke ever since, with Duke Nukem Forever being

PAX East 2020 Hands-on: Radical Rabbit Stew

Radical Rabbit Stew is a wacky, nostalgia packed homage to old school games releasing July 16th from developer’s Pugstorm and publisher Sold Out. I was able to play the demo at PAX East 2020 on the Switch, which felt like a natural choice for this easily digestible romp of a game. The premise is simple:

Review: Shovel Knight: King of Cards & Showdown

Okay guys, this opening is going to be longer than usual, so buckle yourselves in! If you’re a fan of retro-styled platformers, you’re all but guaranteed to be familiar with Shovel Knight. Originally released in 2014 to critical acclaim, it was an example of how awesome an 8-bit-styled game can look, play, and sound, with

Review: Whipseey and the Lost Atlas

These days, modern day and retro-styled platformers have seen quite a bit of a comeback. In between modern remakes and reimaginings of established franchises, indie titles that have made a serious impression on me (looking at you Cuphead), and new titles that feel comfortable in their own skin, I was feeling pretty good about the direction this genre is going.

Preview: Another World 20th Anniversary Addition

Adventure games, in my opinion, never got the praise they deserved. I could rattle off a list of titles that really defined the genre, but Another World is the topic for today. Developers DotEmu and BulkyPix are bringing the game – “Remastered”, of course – to iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad. Re-live

We Need More Of This: Retro TF2

Team Fortress 2 as a side-scrolling, beat-em-up arcade game. Yes, it looks awesome. And yes, it’s authentic. The title will be available for free on Steam (of course) by the end of the summer, or at least that’s the goal. It certainly has the feel of Double Dragon mixed with TMNT/X-Men style arcade classics. Great

XBLA Update For The Week of June 15th (Highlights)

There were two big releases this week as far as the Xbox Live Arcade world goes, and the one that caught me off guard was The Adventures Of Shuggy. What is a Shuggy? Well, Shuggy is basically what happens after you mix Super Meat Boy, Bubble Bobble, and Super Mario into a blender full of

Retro Revival: Top 8 At UFGT7

It’s no secret that I’m fanatic about the Vampire Savior (Darkstalkers) series. I even played competitively back in the day when I was a youngin’. This video really brings me back, and I’d hate to admit that the level current players of the game have achieved is nothing short of intimidating. This video is too
