Attack of the Mutant Penguins (Jaguar)

Attack of the Mutant Penguins review (JAG)

Reviewed on April 25, 2014

Who even played an Atari Jaguar back in its day? The consoles failure has ultimately led to a strong but small cult of collectors dedicated to experiencing Atari's“64-Bit” powerhouse. The majority of the consoles library consisted of ports of awkward 16-bit/32-bit hybrids, leaving few exclusives of interest. However, one of the those exclusives is Attack of the Mutant Penguins, an incredibly bizarre arcade style overhead platform game now thrown into obscurity.

Val D'Isere Skiing and Snowboarding review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

The Atari Jaguar has several racing games available: among them are Atari Karts, Power Drive Rally, Super Burnout, and of course the infamous Checkered Flag. But I would argue that the best racing game, and one of my favorite games for the Jaguar, is one that might surprise you: Val d'Isere Skiing and Snowboarding.

Syndicate (Jaguar)

Syndicate review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

In the early 1990s the British developer Bullfrog created some very popular simulation games such as 'Populous' and 'Theme Park'. In these games you assume the role of an omnipotent being who overlooks a world. While looking down upon this world's map, you can control various actions of small beings wandering around.

SpaceWar 2000 review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

A few years ago the folks at B&C Computers (www.myatari.com) discovered a prototype ROM for an unreleased Atari Jaguar game. The game is SpaceWar 2000; B&C have produced a limited number of copies of this cart.

SkyHammer (Jaguar)

SkyHammer review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

In Skyhammer, you’re a hired mercenary pilot flying a helicopter-like aircraft in a futuristic "Blade Runner" city, shooting enemy tanks, other aircraft and picking up valuable packages. You have a cockpit view of the city as you hunt down your enemies and dock at the Cyber Mart for repairs. As you destroy your enemies and complete missions you can earn credits for purchasing more supplies at the Cyber Mart.

Ruiner Pinball (Jaguar)

Ruiner Pinball review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

There used to be a time when pinball machines were common, and one could find them in arcades, laundromats, and corner stores. You'd plunk a quarter into the big upright box, pull back on the plunger, and slap those flipper buttons to shoot the metal ball around the tableful of bumpers, chutes, and targets. The appeal was both visual and physical as you tried to get the metal ball to smack into targets with a noisy thunk. For years now, developers have tried to recreate the experience of a pin...

Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy (Jaguar)

Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

When the Atari Jaguar was first released in November 1993, there were a measly two games available at launch: the pack-in of Cybermorph, and also a 2D shooter called "Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy". Trevor McFur is a game in the style of most horizontal-scrolling shooters such as Gradius, R-Type, or the arcade classic Scramble. As the background slowly scrolls past (and as is typical, from right to left), you maneuver a fighter-craft with the D-pad. You can use the controller buttons to fi...

Missile Command 3D (Jaguar)

Missile Command 3D review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

Missile Command 3D is really three games in one cart. One is a reasonably close replica of the original arcade version: an enemy has launched nuclear missiles at your cities on the bottom of the screen. As the missile contrails streak down the screen, you move a pointer to aim interceptor missiles at the incoming enemy weapons.

Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (Jaguar)

Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

Do you remember that Bruce Lee game for the Atari 8-bit computers? That was a great game, man! Hey, do you like 2D streetfighter-style games? Yeah? Well, imagine if you made a videogame about a real-life fighter. How about if that fighter was one of the greatest martial arts masters in modern times? And how about if he was Bruce freaking Lee? Man, you'd think that have to be a pretty damn good game. Oh, but wait, this is for the Atari Jaguar...

Checkered Flag (Jaguar)

Checkered Flag review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

One of the favorite genres of many videogame players is auto racing. Just like many other folks I enjoy racing games, and when I first read that Rebellion, the creators of the two fantastic games Alien vs. Predator and Skyhammer, had also made a racing game for the Jaguar, I guessed that it would have to be good - but as I researched further I learned that Checkered Flag has a reputation as one of the worst games for the Jaguar. C’mon, did Rebellion really create a lemon?

Brutal Sports Football (Jaguar)

Brutal Sports Football review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

I don't enjoy most team sports games; they usually seem pretty boring to me. Something like Madden will put me to sleep faster than a bottle of Nyquil. However, there's one such game for the Jaguar that I can recommend to even the non-sports fans: Brutal Sports Football. I once tried BSF a few years ago and decided that I didn't like it, but recently I decided to give it one more try. This time I decided to spend some time trying to learn the controls and beat the computer. After giving the game...

Breakout 2000 (Jaguar)

Breakout 2000 review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

Remember the classic old video game BREAKOUT? You move a Pong-like paddle left and right, bouncing a ball off a wall of bricks, destroying one brick at a time as the bounces and returns in your direction. In the late 90s the company Telegames released an updated 3D version called BREAKOUT 2000 for the 64-bit Atari Jaguar console.

Atari Karts (Jaguar)

Atari Karts review (JAG)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

One of the rarest cartridge games produced for the Atari Jaguar is "Atari Karts". It was released near the end of the Jaguar's lifespan, and never had a chance to sell in substantial numbers while Atari was still ‘alive’. Atari Kart has always been in demand, and so even now it still costs plenty: the typical selling price for a complete boxed game is often $50 US or more. Some vendors still have new copies in stock, but those generally cost $70 plus. Wow! $70 seems like a heck of a lot to ...

Iron Soldier (Jaguar)

Iron Soldier review (JAG)

Reviewed on March 09, 2004

Iron Soldier is considered to be one of the better games to appear on Atari's ill-fated Jaguar console. However that really isn't saying much. Although the console was touted as 64 bit, you wouldn't think it to look at the graphics in Iron Soldier, but more on that later.

Flip Out! (Jaguar)

Flip Out! review (JAG)

Reviewed on March 09, 2004

When I purchased Flip Out, a puzzle game for the Atari Jaguar, my expectations were not high. Classic puzzle games like Tetris, Bust A Move and Chu Chu Rocket are already part of gaming legend. Flip Out is not, and with good reason. It is one of the most ill-conceived, badly designed and just plain crappy games I have ever played.

Cybermorph (Jaguar)

Cybermorph review (JAG)

Reviewed on March 09, 2004

Indulge me as I start this review by talking about marketing tactics. My reasoning will soon become clear. When Nintendo wanted to boost sales of their ailing N64 console in the UK they produced special promotional packs that included a top N64 title into the bargain. For example, Goldeneye or Mario 64. Buy the console and get a classic game into the bargain. A great way of stimulating interest and showing off the very best your console has to offer.
