Pinball Dreams on the Amstrad CPC – An EXCLUSIVE First Look!

Released originally in 1992 on the Amiga, Pinball Dreams, the game which claimed to be a ‘real pinball simulator’ became somewhat of a fan-favourite and cult classic. Released on many different system over the years including the likes of the Super Nintendo, the Amstrad CPC never saw a port as […]

Quarantine – Driving simulation and FPS action from 1994, a DarkwyndPT review!

Double Review – Retro Gaming Books The A to Z of Amstrad CPC Games Vol 1 & Retro Tech

Manhunter: New York – A classic Adventure game reviewed by DarkwyndPT

For those who had the privilege to experience videogames during the 80s and 90s (like yours truly), you probably noticed that the period between the late 80s and early 90s was probably the most prolific in terms of novelties.

New Amiga 1200 keycaps arrive from A1200.net and we’ve reviewed them

A1200.net has done exceedingly well via crowd funding and more especially for the Amiga community throughout these last few years, as not only did they smash a Kickstarter success for their Amiga 1200 case crowd funding campaign, but during 2016 they also pushed through a successful Kickstarter for the Amiga […]

Crash Bandicoot – N. Sane Trilogy (Vicarious Visions Game, PS4, 2017) – Reviewed by AlanG

There is a general rule in life; you don’t mess with a classic. You are almost certainly setting yourself up to fail. Volkswagon tried with the re-launch of the ‘Mini’ and while the German version of the British classic car may be a solid vehicle and has racked up good […]
