Star Wars Arcade (A2600) - by -^Cro§Bow^-
Parker Brothers was one of the largest third party providers for games for the Atari 2600 VCS during the early to mid 80s. Perhaps the series that Parker Brothers is best known for is their Star Wars series of games released for the VCS. There were five titles proposed of which only four actually made it to production [...more]
Crossbow - by -^Cro§Bow^-
When Atari released their 7800 ProSystem, they promised to the masses true arcade quality and sound for the home. Several conversions on the 7800 live up to this claim. One such game is a personal favorite of mine. That game is none other than Crossbow…
You and a band of your trustworthy friends set out on a trek [...more]
Starmaster - by -^Cro§Bow^-
1982 was a good year to be the proud owner of an Atari 2600 VCS system. Atari made several releases that year made possible by such previous successes as Space Invaders, Defender and even the bane of all conversions…Pac man. However, Atari weren’t the only ones making games for the VCS at that time. Another company [...more]
Total Carnage - by EazyCheeze
1992 saw the release of a bloody, gory (but fun as all hell) semi-sequel to Williams/Midway's blockbuster hit, Smash TV. This was a different game, to be sure, but it had the same mechanics: upwards of fifty enemies on screen at one time, the tongue-in-cheek humor, the over-the-top gore, and a timely theme; the destruction [...more]
Star Castle - by D@Z
I don`t know how many people know this but this little game made a small appearence in a film,any idea`s ? Well it was the film Maximum Overdrive,a film about a strange force controlling all the vehicles in and around a gas station,watch it and see if you can spot it.
Anyway enough of its short film debut,on with the [...more]
Commando - by D@Z
I first played this game on my Spectrum 128k+ back in the 80`s and it was not till the late 80`s before I played it in the arcades.The graphics and sound were obviously better on the arcade version but the basic gameplay was the same,you start by being dropped off behind enemy lines by your helicoper crew and then your [...more]
Space Invaders - by D@Z
Space invaders was the start of great things to come in the arcade`s,without the great work of Toshihiro Nishikado (Designer and programmer) this may never have happened.The format of this game is so simple,yet so effective. With 55 aliens trying to land on the earth your mission is to destroy them all in time before they [...more]
Defender - by D@Z
With pac-man and space invaders around in the early 80`s Williams had to come up with something to match the opposition and they did. Designed and programmed by Eugene Jarvis, Larry DeMar,Sam Dicker,and Paul Dussault defender was born!
You know when you play some games and wonder where the time has gone,well here is [...more]
StarFox - by Dorsola
Okay, I figured it was time to do something a little different here. What say we look at a SNES game or two? Well, most of you SNES enthusiasts have heard of or played this game, StarFox, and I'd imagine many of you loved it as I did. (If you didn't, I just have to ask: WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!??? ;-)
Well, [...more]
1941 Counter Attack - by Personan
1941 Counter Attack is the last and best incarnation of Capcom’s brilliant World War 2 shoot em’up series which includes 1942 and 1943. Perhaps this series of games was never going to win any prizes for political correctness but as far as shoot em-ups go these games attracted a lot of attention in the arcades, probably [...more]
