Lock 'N Chase (Game Boy)

Lock 'N Chase review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

To be overlooked is to be virtually unknown; it's to be a great game that you never hear many, if anybody, brag about. Lock 'n Chase for the Game Boy is just that, terribly overlooked. On a usual trip to Wal-Mart with saved up cash on hand ready to buy a game, I had no certain one in mind. I just wanted a new game for the Game Boy, since Tetris and Super Mario Land were my only titles thus far. Only one game's back of the box really caught my eye like a Playboy magazine amongst a crowd of romanc...

The Castlevania Adventure (Game Boy)

The Castlevania Adventure review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

We've all heard the saying, ''Don't get your hopes up,'' more times than we care to remember. After the success of the Castlevania series on the NES, fans couldn't help but to get their hopes up higher than stratus clouds in a winter sky. I was one of these people. While I wasn't a big fan of Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, I never could get enough of the original, and that's what this one seemed like according to the back of its box.

Boomer's Adventure in Asmik World (Game Boy)

Boomer's Adventure in Asmik World review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

They say that good things come to those who wait. I had a certain parent that never played many video games at all, but for some reason, she always wanted to have a say in which ones I purchased. It wasn't because she was worried about protecting me from animated violence, but because she enjoyed watching me kick ass in games. One particular title that caught her eye from the very start was Boomer's Adventure in Asmik World. I begged to differ; it didn't look very fun to me, but she just wouldn'...

Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Super Mario Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Don't you want to go back to your childhood? You didn't have a care or worry in the world, apart from school and the dreaded homework. For over ten years, you swore you couldn't wait until you were finished with school, because you hated it. But then you finally graduated and had to go to college or work. Responsibility showed its ugly face and left you no choice but to work your ass off just to earn pieces of paper that we call 'money'. Eventually, you can't help but to reminisce and long to go...

Word Zapper (Atari 2600)

Word Zapper review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

The first time I played Word Zapper, I thought it was some sort of an educational game that was meant to help kids learn how to spell out words. The more I played it, the more I learned that not only is it not educational, it's not even fun in the least sense!

Video Pinball (Atari 2600)

Video Pinball review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

I grew up on the Atari 2600 and Video Pinball has always been one of my favorites. I started playing video games real early (I was about 3 or 4, if that old), so I don't remember what the first video game I ever played was, but Video Pinball is definitely one of them. Even after I started buying a few Atari 2600 games on my own, I still played Video Pinball just as much as almost all of my new games. Let's just say that I have a lot of memories and nostalgia for this game.

Video Olympics review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Pong fans rejoice! Pong was the first video game that millions of people instantly got hooked on and one of the first games to ever hit the arcades, if not the first. Video Olympics/Pong Sports (same game; some cartridges are named Video Olympics and others are named Pong Sports) for the Atari 2600 has the original Pong and much more!

Towering Inferno (Atari 2600)

Towering Inferno review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When a fire starts, it can turn into a deadly situation in a flash, especially when it's a towering skyscraper that has caught aflame. In a matter of minutes, the whole building can come tumbling down. Unfortunately, the same holds true for human beings. Whether a person is a punk or an admirable person with envious achievements, everything they own, everything they are, can be gone all of a sudden when a fire becomes their unwelcome neighbor. It's up to the heroes, the firemen, to put their saf...

Surround (Atari 2600)

Surround review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When you first turn on the game of Surround and begin playing it, you might wonder how it could possibly be a worthwhile game. All you see is solid, ancient looking blocks that are all the same boring old color. But like the saying goes: Looks can be deceiving. Before you know it, after playing a few rounds of this game that features nothing more than normal, every day squares or blocks that move around on a television screen, you find yourself growing more and more fond of a little game called ...

Sky Diver (Atari 2600)

Sky Diver review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When I was young, there was no real clear line between religion and video games. All I ever did was play video games. The younger years of my life were made up of nothing but the Atari 2600. One of my older brothers is almost seven years older than me, but video games seemed to be just as important to him as they were to me. He was the champion of the time while I was an up-and-coming gamer that wanted nothing more than to beat him at every game we played. One of our favorites was always Sky Div...

Seaquest (Atari 2600)

Seaquest review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Humans are among the greediest of creatures. When a burglar breaks into a home or a robber decides to steal from a bank, they fail to believe that they're going to be caught by the police and thrown into jail. Greed completely takes over their mind and makes them forget about the harsh consequences. There's only one slice of cake left, and you know you should save it for your girlfriend, but do you? Heck no, you might get slapped later on when she finds out who ate it, but you don't care. You're...

Q*Bert (Atari 2600)

Q*Bert review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When I was a kid, just about all I ever bought with my own money was video games. Whether it was with the aid of my almost microscopic allowance, my huge bundles of Christmas money, or just finding a dollar on the side of the street, video games were always what I had in mind.

Pitfall! (Atari 2600)

Pitfall! review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Very few people know and even fewer seem to care that Pitfall! is considered to be the first true 2D platforming adventure and one of the most revolutionary video games of all time; some even say it's the most revolutionary game ever made. Pitfall Harry is on a mission to find all the treasure he can in the eternity of 20 minutes; I guess you could call it a get rich quick scheme of the early 80's. Not only is Harry searching for lost riches, he's searching for it in the wild jungle of all place...

Outlaw (Atari 2600)

Outlaw review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Outlaw is one of the many prototype-looking early titles for the Atari 2600. It has graphics that look like something a 5-year-old would draw for an art class, but underneath the troubling looks is a game that can provide a great deal of entertainment.

Night Driver (Atari 2600)

Night Driver review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

The 80's were just beginning to come into focus and video games had been in existence for only a few years, but they were becoming all the more popular with each passing calendar. The video game industry was like a rock rolling from the top of a hill, gaining speed as it tumbles down the slope. Since video games were at such a young age that they hadn't outgrown diapers yet, there weren't many racing or driving simulators at all. For this reason, gamers were likely to play any driving game that ...

The Atari 2600's Ms. Pac-Man isn't a perfect clone of the Ms. Pac-Man that everybody knows from the arcades, but it's damn close.

Mouse Trap (Atari 2600)

Mouse Trap review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

A sneaky little mouse and three furry cats are all hungry. All the mouse wants are a few pieces of cheese, but the cats would rather have a living creature for lunch, such as a mouse! Each of the three felines are extremely greedy; they don't want to divide a mouse into thirds; they all want the entire feast for themselves, so they all go their separate ways in the twisting maze.

Moon Patrol (Atari 2600)

Moon Patrol review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

There are some things that I'm automatically drawn to simply by their name and look. When I first read the title of a book called ''The Ultimate History of Video Games'' and saw its cover, it shot straight to the top of my must-get list right away. Growing up, I always wanted to be a meteorologist, until I found out how much physics, calculus, and chemistry that I'd have to take. Anything that had to do with weather, especially tornadoes, was always a major turn on for me.

Missile Command (Atari 2600)

Missile Command review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

In Missile Command, you control a sort of spaceship that resembles a flashing, horizontal line, or cursor. Your job is to control the various missiles and other spaceships by moving your cursor of a spaceship around the screen and using it to plant loads of bombs in the right places in order to kick some major missile and alien butt. Move your flashing line where you anticipate the oncoming enemy being in the next 1-3 seconds, and then press the button to make your station at the bottom-middle o...
