Right, you wanted news, here you go ….
Marble Madness fans will be drooling at the screenshots for this remake because it looks truly stunning. All six levels are included, and the author claims it is faithful to the arcade version in every way. Sadly it won’t let me play it without updating my graphics card drivers :(
Nearly fainted when I had an email from “Les Bird”. Soon came around when I realised it was about Levitar 3D, a remake of the old Atari classic Gravitar. Only one scenario to play through at the moment though.
I have vague memories of something called “Score League”, where we played Bubble Bobble, well some played and others like me struggled !! Anyway here we have a remake for your gaming pleasure … I have been warned by my doctor not to play it until the nightmares subside.
Once in a while I like to quote an email. This one is from Russia with love … “Recently we released Acres OF Gold. Game design based on Circler and Perestroyka – most famous arcades in ex-USSR of 80th. Circler were released on BK computers and Perestroyka on PC platform. For all retro players from Russia this title means the same as Asteroids, Invaders, Pacman etc. for the rest of the world!”.
Change of web address for Java Laser Squad. Nuff said.
How about a PSX remake? Anyone remember Devil Dice, well Bas de Reuver does, and whilst browsing he came across Evil Dice, based on the 1998 Sony title.
Back in the day I enjoyed Wing Commander. Maybe it was the neat interactivity, maybe it plugged the gap between Star Wars and Phantom Menace, I don’t know. However now we have a remake Wing Commander Privateer, and to quote from the site “The original Privateer is a well loved game, with incredible graphics and gameplay for its day. Built on an open source codebase, the Remake is a community effort to bring the universe of the original into the 21st century”. Thanks to Matt Teal for that one.
I love getting emails from people with just a link, meaning not only do I have to post it as news, I also have to research the game because no other details are included in the email. Well may I present Dragon Warrior, its an old NES RPG. Research ended.
