All good things come to an end. Except this was never a good thing, and it hasn't technically come to an end. Fan favourite The Obscure Research Project, founded in 2006-ish by myself... isn't going to get any bigger, though you might have guessed this already. It's reached the end of its natural life and I probably won't be updating it anymore. I don't know if it did its job but hey, rest in peace you badly named mess. Keep reading for the autopsy.

Bible Adventures

Are you ready for the potentially fourth best religious-themed video game ever?! It's Bible Adventures for the Sega Mega Drive. Unlicensed 1995 tripe by Wisdom Tree, Bible Adventures was aimed at crazy people in American society and failed to take note of important industry standards. Sounds like a blast!

Scud Race

Spare a thought for Scud Race. Or SPORTS CAR ULTIMATE DRIVE... race. Americans may know it as "Sega Super GT" because confusion is fun, but generally not many people know of this game at all because it was never ported to home platforms. It's a fate it didn't deserve, so time to do it some justice.

Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing

Hurray big images

I saw Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing come and go and I didn't really pay all that much attention to it. Once upon a time I'd happily claim I was a big fan of both parties, but this release just struck me as some sort of uninspiring cash-in. The poor man's Mario Kart, which just happened to be priced higher. But opinions can change when you get 4.3GB worth of PC game for free.. right?

Truxton II

Still not quite Cosmic Carnage.

Here on my little blog, I like to review games I can't play, witter for a few paragraphs and give a meaningless final verdict which both fails to attract new players and fails to impress the veterans. But rather than break the trend here's TRUXTON II (a.k.a. Tatsujin Oh!), sequel to Truxton (Tatsujin). It's a vertical shoot-'em-up by Toaplan, first released into the arcades in 1992, and if you ever needed a good definition of "hardcore gaming" this should do you quite nicely.

Sonic Labyrinth

And this time lets hope Blogger doesn't break down!

Stupid ideas regarding the Sonic series is nothing new. Before the gun crime, bestiality and god-awful dialogue plagued Sega's top dog there was Sonic Labyrinth for the Sega Game Gear. Take Sonic's speed away from him and put him in a maze. Of course it will sell!

Donkey Kong Land

In 1989 Nintendo released the Game Boy to explore new lands. And explore new lands it did. It found Mario Lands, Wario Lands, Kirby's Dream Lands, and a Game Boy continent was formed.

Perhaps the most interesting of the lands on the Game Boy contintent are the Donkey Kong Lands. The world is divided on whether they're a top class representation of Game Boy brilliance or an insult to human eyesight. Either way it's fair to say they weren't the most upmarket of places to live.
