Review: Iron Assault

Hello there. Looking at the last few review posts, I’ve obviously given up on trying to find another way to say “I hope you’re doing ok” – so, I hope you’re doing ok. Today we make a rare visit to the Simulation section of the site for some big robot action, in Iron Assault.

Inside The Big Cardboard Box: The White Label

In a recent(ish) Vault of Regret post, I wrote about the time when I had a bulk clear-out of old games, shifting most of them as a job lot inside a massive cardboard box. Despite spending more time than is healthy on trying to find details of that eBay listing and what exactly was in […]

Review: Jill of the Jungle

Hello everyone, hope you are well. Today I have another review for you! I’m sure it will be the highlight of your day. Or maybe just something mildly interesting to read during a tea break. Or maybe you’ll think I’m talking nonsense. Anyway, here’s our review of Jill of the Jungle.

Soundtracks/When I played…Need for Speed III

Soundtracks is where we talk about licensed music in games. When I Played was a series from a few years ago, about significant games, and times, in my life. Today we have a strange kind of hybrid/crossover piece, a one-off for a special occasion. Hope you don’t mind. Nostalgia and happy (or, sometimes, less-than-happy) memories […]

Review: NBA Live 95

Hi there. Some time ago, The Last Dance on Netflix inspired me to play a couple of old basketball games. Here’s a write-up of the second: NBA Live 95 from EA. (I’ve since moved onto Friday Night Lights and Last Chance U, so I imagine I’ll end up writing about Front Page Sports Football while […]

Review: Commander Keen in Keen Dreams

To be honest Rik is the main “review guy” here, I mostly just chip in with dumb blog posts about getting my ass kicked in RPGs. However, I would like to try and contribute a bit more regularly. So tonight I have another MS-DOS platform game for you. Let’s take a look at the “lost […]

Review: Kick Off 3: European Challenge

Hi there everyone. Hope you’re doing okay. Today’s review is Kick Off 3: European Challenge from Anco. We’ve got a few video clips from the game too. And, as ever, a new football game review also means a change to the standings in the FFG Football League.

I hate you, Supreme Titans

The other night I sat down for bit of Might and Magic 6, which I started five years ago but have not yet completed. Which may seem a bit ridiculous. Certainly this is personal record for the longest amount of time spent on a single run through a game. The slow progress is due to […]

Review: NBA Jam: Tournament Edition

Hello. Hope you’re all doing well, or hanging in there, at least. Like many others, I recently watched and enjoyed¬†The Last Dance¬†on Netflix. I don’t know much about basketball, or US sports in general, but like all the best documentaries, I don’t think that’s necessary in order to enjoy it. Anyway, it of course stirred […]

Dusting off an old feature

Hi all. When we started this site (nearly 20 years ago) we envisaged writing second opinions for each other’s reviews. Not that I envisaged many major disagreements (“Rik speaks lies! Zone Raiders is a classic!”), just the chance to look at games from a slightly different angle, making observations that would not have occurred to […]
