In space, no one can hear you drift
March 28, 2015 - Space can be a lonely place, especially when your ship gets damaged by an asteroid. Xeodrifter tries to emulate Metroid mechanics in almost every way, but does it live up to the classics or is it simply not enough to satisfy your retro cravings?

General Morden should know not to make alliances with aliens
March 25, 2015 - Metal Slug has been around for almost two decades and for good reason. It still stands tall as one of the best run 'n' gun shooters and with the recent release of the third game on modern consoles, there's no reason not to experience this timeless classic. However, does just one game hold up enough to satisfy modern gamers or should you wait for another Metal Slug Anthology?

Colonising Mars isn't going to be easy
March 18, 2015 - After decades of shoot 'em ups, it's difficult to create one that stands out in the modern age. Although Jamestown+ is a worthy contender, does it top the true classics from the '80s and '90s or are you better off living in the past?

It's about time
March 2, 2015 - When a game developer opts for a minimalistic approach, it's always a bold move. However, few have mastered this modus operandi. The question is, does Minutes have what it takes to be a worthwhile experience or should you spend your time elsewhere?

The game that won't give up the fight
February 27, 2015 - It looks like Team Ninja is jumping on the fighting game re-release bandwagon like so many other developers. Within the past two and a half years, Dead or Alive 5 has been through four iterations. It makes you wonder; is it worth getting if you've already played a previous version or is it best to wait for the inevitable Dead or Alive 6?

Some retro games should stay in the past
February 18, 2015 - In a world full of arcade-inspired indies, it's intriguing to see an actual remake of a classic arcade game. If you've played the original Q*bert then you'll generally know what to expect. A few additions and updates help freshen it up a bit for the modern age, but is it worth downloading a copy or is it only for fans? Before we get to the review, it should be mentioned that this package contains the original Q*bert (which is a pretty decent bonus), but it won't be covered in this review since I've already reviewed it here.

It'll take a great deal of firepower to tame this tempest
