Tempest 4000 Review

Everyone has their go-to game when they enter an arcade. Personally, I am always looking for Asteroids and Tempest. While Donkey Kong, Centipede and other classics might be on the top of minds, the vector graphics of these two games cement an era of arcade history for me like no other. Tempest in particular was so unique because of its paddle controller, colored vector graphics and ability to restart at certain levels. The release of Tempest 4000 had me excited to relive the arcade experience for this generation and see what has been added to the game.

Skies of Fury DX Review

Skies of Fury DX for the Nintendo Switch tackles The Great War, not from the ground but from a romanticized and action-oriented view of the air battles between the Royal Air Force and what looks to be the German Luftstreitkräfte as they battle for air superiority over the Front.

Tesla vs Lovecraft Review

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, engineer and futurist, contributing to alternating current electricity supply system. H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an American author, known for his influential horror fiction. Both Tesla and Lovecraft were disgraced in their lifetime but later generations would recognize their achievements.

Rapala Fishing: Pro Series Review

Ironically, this is a fishing experience that will bore you not because you can’t catch anything, but rather because you all-too-easily can. It’s still somewhat satisfying to catch a big pile of floppers and watch your cash pile up, but it’s all done in this omnipresent cloud of disappointment. That’s Rapala Fishing: Pro Series for you; not bad, but disappointing.

Deer Hunter: Reloaded Review

I take no pleasure in acknowledging that Deer Hunter: Reloaded is simply atrocious. It’s ugly, sluggish, obtuse, counter-intuitive, and brimming with game-breaking bugs. Its few positive qualities are directly negated by some of its many, many faults, resulting in what sits among the weakest functional video games I have ever played.

Windjammers Review

A wonderful relic of the past (seeing the Data East logo pop-up after all these years brought a tear to my eye), Windjammers is an awesome and unique sports game that, having survived semi-obscurity, might have the cache to become a staple of modern competitive gaming.

Tiny Trax Review

There are a lot of talented and patience content creators out there in video game land, and I bet they could produce some stellar race tracks using in-game assets. Tiny Trax is a celebration of slot car racing, and with its great track design and worthy adversaries, I didn’t realize how much fun I was having until I stopped.
