Jim Power in Mutant Planet

Say, do you value your eyes? According to 1992's Jim Power in Mutant Planet for the Commodore Amiga, it's a pair of organs you could do without. It's yet another game in the collection of early 90s titles which the world has tossed aside for the wrong reasons, so I think it's time to embrace it once again.

Space Launcher

In 1979 Nintendo released Space Launcher. Nobody cared. It's now 2011... and we still probably don't care, if we even have the knowledge of Space Launcher's existence. Luckily for you, if you don't have that knowledge, here it comes in the form of a blog post. Hurray.

Zero Wing

I don't know about you, but if I were on the way to destruction after war began in 2101, I think I'd prefer a spaceship with a wing.

But who am I to dictate the engineering standards of ninety years in the future? I shall instead review the infamous Zero Wing, a 1991 Sega Mega Drive port of the 1989 arcade game. It's a horizontal shoot-'em-up whose fanbase mostly exists of people who get their thrills from poor sentence structure. It's a also game great.

It's almost assessment period. For the thirty-or-so viewers I average a day, there might be an update drought for a bit.

But for now, it's post-2000 time which means more stolen images from IGN. This is Peggle, had you failed to see that giant image. Not really all that obscure, but still classed as demon spawn by the select few who think they know what gaming is.

Bio Force Ape

I'm not one to monkey around with Nintendo products (yes I did just post that sentence), but check it out, it's BIO FORCE APE for that entertaining Nintendo system, the Nintendo Entertainment System. Shown to the world in 1991, hidden from the world by 1992, it's come back to the world in 2011. And this time you can actually play it. But do we want to?
