150 SNES games reviewed #12: Wing Commander

I’m not sure how many of you will have heard of Wing Commander. It’s a long running franchise which started out on PC which was then ported to various systems including the SNES, hence me talking about it. Wing Commander can basically be called a space combat simulation. It wasn’t the first game of its type …



150 SNES games reviewed #11: Championship Pool

Championship Pool came out in 1993 and, as you can obviously tell from the title, it is a pool simulation. It was released for the NES, SNES, Game Boy and the Mega Drive. It was developed by Bitmasters and released by Mindscape. The game is straightforward, it is a virtual version of pool, in which …


150 SNES games reviewed #10: Super Metroid

So many games had the word super stuck on the front, I suppose it is only natural, part of it was a marketing gimmick obviously a way to let people know that this machine was so far beyond the last one that it required that label. Unfortunately a lot of games didn’t live up to …



150 SNES games reviewed #9: Super Goal! 2 (aka Takeda Nobuhiro no Super Cup Soccer)

I have plainly admitted on most days it has been a case of stick my hand in the box, and providing the game is not the same genre as one I have played in the past few days, I play it and then talk about it. I did things a little bit differently this time, I actually …


150 SNES games reviewed #8: Power Moves (aka Power Athlete)

Rule number one if you are going to try to make money by copying another game is to make sure you get a copy of the game you’re trying to copy and play the living daylights out of it. Sit and analyse it. Try to see why it is so popular, and what your game …



Video: Pedz previews Claybook

Hi all. It’s been a little while since I did a retro stream for GRcade as I’ve been busy, but thought I’d share this video about Claybook. Check it out and let me know what you think.


150 SNES games reviewed: #7 Krusty’s Super Fun House

No TV series makes it past 20 series without someone realising it has the potential to sell a lot of other stuff by association. The Simpsons was a largely adult-humoured comedy which children seemed to become obsessed with. So it was no surprise when the Bart vs. this and that games started to pour on …



150 SNES games reviewed: #6 The Rocketeer

So I tried to play The Rocketeer and prior to the game starting there were a few screens with drawings and words, but with my Japanese copy they were of very little help. The game starts and what I am met with is nothing like I imagined. In my head this game was a 2D R-Type …


150 SNES games reviewed: #5 Super Bowling

Super Bowling was made by a developer called KID and was published in Japan by Athena and in North America by Technos. Sometimes it is unofficially called Super Turkey Bowling as the game and its cover is full of cartoon, humanised turkeys. I have quite a history with this game basically it came into my …



150 SNES games reviewed: #4 The Duel: Test Drive II

New day, new game, I figured I would do something I haven’t done so far; I would review a driving game. I picked the game via a simple method; it was the first driving game I pulled out of my box of SNES carts. The Duel: Test Drive II is a racing game developed by …
