In this Let's Play, I take you through Xexyz on the NES from start to finish. This is a fun side-scrolling action/platforming game with shoot 'em up elements intertwined throughout the adventure. It's an overlooked gem, so definitely give it a try if you haven't heard of it.Read More
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game is a port of Konami’s 1989 arcade hit, which itself was based off the immensely popular cartoon series. Unlike the first Turtles game on the NES, this one is a side scrolling beat-em-up, and a superior follow-up in every way.Read More
In this Let's Play, I take you through Dragon Spirit on the NES, with the blue dragon (normal difficulty). This is a pretty fun vertically scrolling shoot 'em up, despite being relatively easy.Read More
Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers is 2D platformer developed by Capcom and released on the NES in 1990. The game was a success for Capcom, but never quite lived up to the legacy of Capcom’s other Disney platformer, DuckTales.Read More
Batman: The Video Game is a side scrolling action game developed by Sunsoft and released on the NES in 1990. The game loosely follows the 1989 film Batman, which relaunched the Dark Knight into mainstream culture.Read More
Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is a Sega-developed platformer released on the Genesis back in 1990. Being such an early release, my expectations for this one were not that high, despite the glowing reviews it usually receives.Read More
In this Let's Play I take you through Dynowarz: Destruction of Spondylus on the NES from start to finish. It's not the most entertaining game out there, nor the most difficult.. so yeah, I don't blame you if you won't want to play the game after watching this video. I totally understand.Read More
I absolutely loved Dr. Mario on the NES and it remains one of my favorite puzzle games of all time. The simple gameplay mechanics, the simplistic, yet charming graphics, and the awesome 8-bit music hit all the right retro notes, and holds up well despite it's vintage. I will eventually visit all of the versions of Dr. Mario on Nintendo's classic consoles and what better way to start, than the other 8-bit version.Read More
Qix was originally an arcade title developed by Taito and released in 1981. Over the next decade it would be released on most home computers and console systems of the era.
Today I'll be looking at the Game Boy version of the game.
Austin performs a playthrough of the classic Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES. However, rather than going for a full, "every stage" type of run, he decided to bolt through the game utilizing the mysterious warp whistles, just as he would have as a kid.Read More
Did you know that many of SEGA's arcade games made it to their competitors' platforms of the day? One such platform is the Turbo Grafx-16/PC Engine, and one of these games is After Burner II.
