Tougi-Ou: King Colossus (Genesis)

Tougi-Ou: King Colossus review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 11, 2013

You start out as some anonymous kid living with an old guy who seems to hate you, and a younger woman who tries to work as a buffer. She also heals you whenever you visit, so I liked her almost as much as I hated how the game basically shrugs off the old dude's behavior as "tough love".

Exed Exes (NES)

Exed Exes review (NES)

What's this? An unexpectedly kind but ultimately humdrum shooter entirely overpopulated by bees?!

Dig Dug (NES)

Dig Dug review (NES)

Reviewed on July 09, 2013

The player character of Dig Dug married (and later divorced) the player character of Baraduke/Alien Sector and their son is the main character of Mr. Driller. The Dig Dug mythos is rich enough without even looking at the UGSF craziness.

Xexyz (NES)

Xexyz review (NES)

Reviewed on July 08, 2013

Other than them, Xexyz is a pretty manageable game with my main stalling point being one particular boss fought fairly late into the game. Horrza looks pretty awesome (the fact that he’s a jet-pack-wearing dragon wielding a pair of guns — one seemingly grafted into its tail — might be the coolest thing imaginable), but he'll utterly slaughter all but the most skilled players with nonstop fire aided by his erratic movements up and down the screen.

Code Name: Viper (NES)

Code Name: Viper review (NES)

Reviewed on July 07, 2013

People use the word “clone” a lot these days as they talk about video games, sometimes unjustly. Some games really do deserve that unwanted label, though, and there are few titles with a more legitimate claim to it than Code Name: Viper for the NES. That isn't to say that it’s a poor product, however.

Remember Me (PC)

Remember Me review (PC)

Reviewed on July 06, 2013

It's not dull; it's too varied for that. What it's lacking, though, is anything that truly makes it stand out on the gameplay front. It would have only taken one thing to elevate this material, and the memory remix levels almost do that, but there are only four of them, in a campaign that'll run you nine or ten hours to complete.

It came from the Arcades of Japan. I wish it had stayed there.

Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu review (NES)

Reviewed on June 20, 2013

It’s entirely possible that this game isn’t based on the real life of Jackie Chan.

Double Dragon II: The Revenge review (NES)

Reviewed on June 20, 2013

Double Dragon II is the quintessential example of what a video game sequel should be.

Mega Man (NES)

Mega Man review (NES)

Reviewed on June 20, 2013

I don’t think that the first Mega Man game holds up as well as many of its sequels did, but it’s still a fun and challenging title.

Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones review (NES)

I spent so many years of my life convincing myself that I loved Double Dragon 3. I see now the error of my ways.

Over Horizon (NES)

Over Horizon review (NES)

Reviewed on June 20, 2013

The next level drops you into an icy cavern where you'll find yourself shooting blocks to temporarily move them out of the way so that you can slip through the gaps before the ice returns to its original position. When you get used to doing that, you'll confront small machines capable of also moving the blocks — except they kick the dang things right into you, which keeps you on your toes.

Mighty Final Fight review (NES)

Reviewed on June 14, 2013

Mighty Final Fight is a prime example of what happens when a developer competently ports a big game to a smaller platform.

Crash 'N the Boys Street Challenge (NES)

Crash 'N the Boys Street Challenge review (NES)

Reviewed on June 14, 2013

As a party game, Crash ‘N the Boys: Street Challenge could be a blast. It’s designed for trash talking and the raucous shenanigans that occur when four gamers crowd around a TV.
