2010: The Graphic Action Game (Colecovision)

2010: The Graphic Action Game review (CVN)

Reviewed on March 11, 2010

Even by the humble standards of 1984, 2010: The Graphic Action Game is light on action, none of it particularly graphic, unless you consider circuit board stills especially rousing or obscene. Worse, the misnomer does not end there. If you were to create a game based on the film 2010: The Year We Made Contact audiences today might suppose you dim, but in the early 1980s the sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey was anticipated enough to get a Colecovision project bearing its nam...
Xenophobe (Arcade)

Xenophobe review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 25, 2010

In 1987 Bally Midway engineered Xenophobe, a one-to-three person alien extermination effort with a twist.  While simultaneous cooperative play has roots far deeper in gaming history, perhaps never before had a developer so intuitively envisioned the future of multiplayer.   Xenophobe divides a single arcade monitor into three strips of screen, each player entitled his own.  Each strip initially displays a chamber of an extraterrestrially overrun environment, all of the settings sli...
Viking: Battle for Asgard (PlayStation 3)

Viking: Battle for Asgard review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 03, 2009

Gruesome. In a word, it's what Viking: Battle for Asgard strives to achieve. A rival viking stumbles dead after the cut of your blade, an 'X' icon next to his still upright corpse. There's a difference between slaughter and sending a message. You could let his body fall by the wayside, focusing on the flock advancing. Or you could warn the impending legion of their doom. Tap that 'X' in time and watch as Skarin mercilessly gores the deceased on his blade before decapitating the mini...
Stratovox (Arcade)

Stratovox review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 16, 2009

Historians will note that Stratovox was the first game to use synthesized voice. Long forgotten behind this trivia is the unforgiving game time forgot. My initial impression of Stratovox, you ask?
Antarctic Adventure (Colecovision)

Antarctic Adventure review (CVN)

Reviewed on November 15, 2009

Konami's Antarctic Adventure is a devilishly challenging title, an addicting yet frustrating arctic hustle content to be as cold as the icy continent. Tasked with visiting arctic bases under the strictest of time constraints, the plucky Penta the Penguin will have his hands full dodging fissures in the ice and smiling sea lions all along his way. Both happen to be harmless. Sea lions pop out of fishing holes only to send Penta back a few paces while any icy crevice is shallow enough to...
Gorf (Colecovision)

Gorf review (CVN)

Reviewed on November 09, 2009

The Galactic Orbiting Robot Force, better known as Gorf, has its sights set on our humble Earth for its next conquest, its alien fleet traveling through a space warp and descending on the planet in a uniform march. Something must be done. Confronted with such threats before, the Earth people have learned. Before they would commission one pilot to watchguard the planet, roving the lower atmosphere as descenders continued to fall. But ceaseless Space Invaders would never stop com...
Mr. Do!'s Castle (Colecovision)

Mr. Do!'s Castle review (CVN)

Reviewed on November 03, 2009

Taking to heart the accusation that their first title in the series, Mr Do!, was merely a copy of Dig Dug, developer Universal made certain that Mr. Do's Castle bore nary a resemblance to the Atari creation. For instance, in this spirited follow-up, Mr. Do finally surfaces, no longer weaving through underground networks mined out of wavy yellow and green checkered earth. A light bulb clicked on during one of the design team meetings -- "Our hero is a clown, not a gopher!" ...
Mr. Do! (Colecovision)

Mr. Do! review (CVN)

Reviewed on October 30, 2009

Mr. Do is a clown. That's strike one against him. In this self-titled Colecovision debut he harvests cherries lying ripe in bizarre single-screen sub-terrains. His underground world is one of pastel and patterned colors, dirt-munching monsters and easily excavated soil which he burrows through with ease. If only his natural predators weren't so abundant, he might have it made, but alas Mr. Do is forever on the lam, digging for his next cherry under the dogging jaws of Badguys and Diggers, Bl...
