Retro Monday: Turbo Out Run

First off, I’ll let you know that I am bad at racing games, ask those who’s seen me on a Retro Monday where I’ve had a racing game, or the folk I’ve played Driveclub and Mario Kart with. Anyway, Turbo Out Run is the Sequel to Out Run, it was originally an arcade game where …


Retro Monday: Kickle Cubicle

This game has come up several times on some peoples lists to get played, but until this week hasn’t managed to get the votes it’s needed to actually win. It’s yet another game I haven’t played, which is now becoming a common theme. Kickle Cubicle is a puzzle game, so put it simply you control …


Retro Monday – Greendog: The Beached Surfer Dude!

Greendog: The Beached Surfer Dude is another game I haven’t played before, in fact, I don’t think I’ve heard of it. The game seems to centre around a guy called Greendog and he’s be cursed due to a magic amulet and he can’t go surfing anymore, that is unless he collects all the shards of …


Retro Monday: Konami Krazy Racers

I have never played this game before, sure I’ve played Mario Kart, but not Konami’s version of it. I was happy to have played it though, it’s actually very good in it’s own right. It’s going to be instantly compared to Mario Kart, as they are both similar games and Mario Kart id the fore …


Retro Monday: Zool

Retro Monday: Haunting

I’ve have never heard of this game, let alone played it. Haunting is a game for the Sega Mega Drive, it came out in 1993. Having never played this I …


Retro Monday: Low G Man: The Low Gravity Man.

This week for Retro Monday, I played Chalkitdown’s pick, “Low G Man: The Low Gravity Man”, an action platformer released in 1990 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. I’d never played this before, but I had heard good things about it. Well, lets start with how it looks. The style of the game is pretty great. …


Retro Monday: Desert Strike

In the 90’s EA used to make a variety of games that they don’t seem to make now, one of those games series was the Strike games. There were 5 in total, but today we’re looking at Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf, which coincidentally is also the very first game in the Strike series. As a …
