Domino Man (Arcade)

Domino Man review (ARC)

Reviewed on October 20, 2010

The heck with Jumpman fighting Donkey Kong for a woman--I'll take Domino Man's balding, emotional protagonist fighting society for his art. All the poor guy wants to do is build up domino chains in a city block, a golf course, and a construction zone, but the people and animals around keep knocking down his work. A frumpy washerwoman, a drunk on a golf cart, various construction workers--and time itself, in the form of a clock that walks, err, clockwise around the screen--conspire to keep...

Hook (Arcade)

Hook review (ARC)

Reviewed on October 18, 2010

Hook is a very awkward game to judge. It's one that beckons to you even though you think in the back of your head that it will be another wretched movie-game plagued by myriad cliches and wonky controls. But you can't stop looking at the thing. No matter what you play, you find yourself stealing glances at it. You can't toss quarters into it for fear that those precious coins your mom gave you to get you of her hair will be wasted. You won't even risk one. Yet, no matter how many rounds of...

Super Basketball (Arcade)

Super Basketball review (ARC)

Reviewed on October 15, 2010

Few early video games had a story, but Super Basketball musters half of one: win a series of increasingly improbable sixty-second comebacks against a junior high team (78-70) up to the world champions (114-70.) It's more keep-away or Capture the Flag, and that's probably kept it fresh while more realistic early attempts at basketball have gone flat. It's even better now with emulation, which bypasses the annoying controls so you can enjoy the absurdity.

10-Yard Fight (Arcade)

10-Yard Fight review (ARC)

Reviewed on October 15, 2010

Before machines had all this power to make football realistic and fast, designers had to choose the most exciting bits to cram into 200K. The game 10 Yard Fight focuses on a one-minute drill. Kickoffs take no time, first downs regain time, and interceptions push the offense twenty yards back. If you score a touchdown, the computer kicks the ball farther next time, and you start with less time against a quicker, more aggressive defense. With your runner near the bottom in the semi-overhead...

Basketball (Atari 2600)

Basketball review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 14, 2010

There's nothing complicated to the gameplay. You run to the other side and hit the button to shoot the ball. Do it from the right angle and it lands perfectly into the hoop. Miss and it bounces off and gives your opponent a chance to shoot. This game skips all the complicated BS of more sophisticated NBA games and goes straight for the throat. This one is more about being fast and aggressive. There are no fouls, no flags, no complicated maneuvers or flashy graphics and sounds. It's raw and primi...

Fate (PC)

Fate review (PC)

Reviewed on October 09, 2010

The charm has worn off. The enchantment is gone. The battles that were furious are now frustrating and tiresome. Later levels offer no surprises. Then again, neither did the first. In fact, since this game is a Diablo clone, there shouldn't be any surprise at all.

Softball Tengoku (NES)

Softball Tengoku review (NES)

Reviewed on October 07, 2010

At the risk of sounding cliché, Softball Heaven (or Softball Tengoku) might say everything you need to know about the 8-bit import in the title. Now, I can’t personally imagine what a Softball Hell might be like, but I’m sure its got nothing on this gem.

The Hunt for Red October (NES)

The Hunt for Red October review (NES)

Reviewed on October 05, 2010

Basic mechanics really help keep a game afloat. All it takes is for one or two mechanical elements to be out of place for a game to sink like a torpedo-shot submarine. Its hull smashed in, it sinks to the bottom of the gaming sea where it may not be seen or heard from again. Only in passing memory is it ever mentioned, and usually not fondly. Down there, the scavengers will pick it apart. Its various degrading pieces will be food for the bashing beasts.

Sonic and the Secret Rings (Wii)

Sonic and the Secret Rings review (WII)

Reviewed on October 04, 2010

Sonic and the Secret Rings is the console successor to Sonic 06. That's rough. However, you'd think Sonic Team learned from their experience with that mess of a product and strove to improve with the follow-up, reassuring the gaming public that 06 was a freak accident.

Adventures of Lolo (NES)

Adventures of Lolo review (NES)

Reviewed on October 04, 2010

Adventures of Lolo was a very early brain teaser of a game that harmoniously blended puzzle game elements with action and adventure to create a wondrous experience. There was more to this game than dropping blocks or colored pills. You actually had an environment to interact with, stimuli to experiment with, and hazards both organic and situational. Lolo is an intelligent game for anyone who loves smart gameplay loaded with tinkering.

Neuromancer (Apple II)

Neuromancer review (APP2)

Reviewed on October 03, 2010

It's too late to write a game about how wonderful the Internet might be. Few actually tried beforehand, but at least Interplay's Neuromancer did it right. Set in decaying, crime-ridden Chiba City in Japan, Neuromancer is part RPG, part adventure game and full of odd characters equally likely to give you information or insult you. It's got public terminals where you can read BBS email or even enter Cyberspace, a weird gridlike world where you can crack databases with the right softw...

I bet you think it's all fun and games, captaining a space ship. I bet to you it's bucketloads of adventure and alien girls and space monsters and cyborgs, and all the other stuff Star Trek says? Well let me tell you something, flatlander; Star Trek has it wrong.

Nifflas makes a very specific kind of game. You can generally pick them out at a glance, it's the kind of game you can sum up in a single sentence.

Kaizou Chounin Shubibinman 3: Ikai no Princess (Turbografx-CD)

Kaizou Chounin Shubibinman 3: Ikai no Princess review (TGCD)

Reviewed on October 03, 2010

It's just another day in modern Tokyo. A cute schoolgirl (or schoolboy, if you're so inclined to choose) is walking down a metallic pathway, when suddenly, robotic ape/lizard hybrids leap from nowhere, only to be slashed in twain with your sword that leaves a shower of sparkles in its wake. Reinforcements come in from all sides as you continue to press your way to the right. A large humanoid robot attacks, its lanky limbs forcing you to keep your distance. You hold your attack button, and after ...

Robot Odyssey (Apple II)

Robot Odyssey review (APP2)

Reviewed on October 02, 2010

People made good money off long multiple choice tests disguised as educational software back in the Apple II's heyday. It took a while for kids to get over playing a computer to realize it was just a quiz. Some games went beyond. Oregon Trail taught the dangers of fording a twelve-foot river and the wisdom of resting if you have dysentery. Number Munchers helped speed up your mental arithmetic. I found Type Attack, a Space Invaders clone that taught the QWERTY keyboard, more useful than e...

Crime Crackers (PlayStation)

Crime Crackers review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 02, 2010

If there is one thing the classic FPS title Doom did not need it was a bunch of numbers, but evidently someone in Japan thought differently. Import-only PlayStation launch title Crime Crackers is essentially a ‘Doom RPG’ full of first-person shooting, mazes, keys, and a bunch of stats. It sounds like a mildly interesting combination except it’s been ruined by poor level design and gimped shooting mechanics.

Katamari Forever review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 02, 2010

One day, the King of the Universe is out in the Nebulae playing with his son, the Prince. The Prince can jump pretty far, but he's no match for the King just yet. In fact, the King can jump as high as he likes, and he does, just to show the Prince how it's done - but disaster strikes! He's hit in the head by a meteor.

Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse (PC)

Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse review (PC)

Reviewed on October 01, 2010

In an age long lost, the standard appearance of a main character vastly differed then that of today. Today, we have protaganists that look more like they belong in a gothic fashion magazine then as a serious combatant, complete with girly long-haired and sunbed tans. But in 1994 the exact opposite applied: manly men with bronze-skinned bodies and muscles that would make Arnold in his prime weep, wearing naught more than a turban and loose-fitting silk trousers.

The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy (NES)

The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy review (NES)

Reviewed on October 01, 2010

There's nothing about a Flintstones platformer that sounds remotely entertaining. One might imagine it boring, plagued by stiff or unresponsive controls, or even not true enough to the source material. However, Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy is actually a decent game. The fact that the developers played it safe and made an everyday platformer actually worked out for them. Could you see them trying to go against the grain and coming up with something like Uncanny X-Men
