Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 3)

Adventure continues! I’d free Prince Buffoon much faster if I didn’t get stuck on two super annoying levels of this wonderful game. I complain a lot. Sorry.

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 2)

Our adventure continues! Sit down and listen to me talk nonsense while two brave goblins make their way through the castle and an undersea world. I complain about the sunken ship level a bunch.  

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 1)

“Alone in the Dark” review

An old Derceto mansion has zombies, demons, ghosts and a Chthonian. And now it also has you (in the role of a private detective Edward Carnby.) It’s now up to you to get out of the house, dispel the evil, save the world and your own life in the first 3D survival horror adventure inspired […]

“Ivan Lozhkin: Price of Freedom” Russian Space Quest ripoff playthrough

Иван Ложкин: Цена Свободы is a 1998 Russian adventure game that is relatively obscure even in the Motherland. I’ve seen a bunch of ads for it in various magazines throughout ’98, but only seen it in a store once. It was never hiding the fact that it was… erm… “inspired” by the Space Quest series […]

“RoboCop 3” review

A police cyborg Alex Murphy once said: “They’ll fix you. They fix everything.” Well, nothing can fix a bad sequel like RoboCop 3, but there’s still a small chance that if you try really hard you can force yourself to think of this game instead of the movie when someone says “RoboCop 3”. Car chases, […]

“Gobliiins” review

This game is French. That doesn’t mean that it’s full of pretentiousness, baguettes and “le fromage”; instead it’s full of charm, puzzles and peculiar visuals. Three brave goblins are on a mission to save the King by solving brain twisting puzzles, and to help you get your daily dose of laughter along the way. Exploiting […]

“Duke Nukem 3D” review

Guts, guns, mutants, pixelated boobs and plenty of toilet humor in the third installment of Duke Nukem series. An instant classic of its day and a retro gaming legend that still lives on. But is it only tits and bathrooms that made Duke3D an enjoyable game? I beg to disagree. Duke Nukem 3D is in […]

“Duke Nukem II” review

Mr. Nukem swapped his pink EGA tank-top for a red VGA one, got himself an Arnie-like voice, an assortment of weapons, soundblaster music & sound effects, an in-level save feature and plenty of cosmetic improvements. But can the second Duke Nukem installment withstand the test of time?   MobyGames page: http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/duke-nukem-ii Official page: http://www.3drealms.com/duke2/index.html Buy […]

“Duke Nukem” review

Cameras, robots, lasers, tons of pixel explosions and not a single bare breast in sight in the first game about everyone’s favorite ultimate alien ass kicker. Before 3D Realms was 3D Realms, before violence and controversy and before the black shades Duke Nukem was wholesome fun for the whole family.

“Full Throttle” review

Bikes, gangs, betrayal, asphalt and trouble in this amazing 1995 Tim Schafer masterpiece. A game with tons of charisma. An adventure game that coined the verb coin.

“Dangerous Dave in the Haunted Mansion” review

Blast away deadly hordes of monsters on your way through a Haunted Mansion. Bloody gibs, frantic reloading and fast paced EGA action in this underrated gem from the early days of id Software.

“Quake” review

More polygons than gamers ever saw in their whole life up until that point, but still not quite enough of them, in this 1996 id Software’s creation, along with 3D BSPs, lightmaps and a whole bunch of low resolution brownish textures. Thousands of internet multiplayer servers and total conversions followed the release. Two official mission […]

“Fantastic Dizzy” Review

A 7th entry in Codemasters’ Dizzy series, the game is largely unknown outside Europe. The cult 8-bit egg-like hero returns in his 16-bit outing. MobyGames page: http://www.mobygames.com/game/nes/fantastic-adventures-of-dizzy Visit http://www.yolkfolk.com PS I might add that my preferred version of the game is actually on the NES (I had the first, non-Alladin version), and that graphics are […]

“Alley Cat” review

A classic IBM PC title, full of cuteness and charm with all of the attributes of the games of the time (such as CGA graphics and a tiny executable). Provided me with hours of fun when I was a little kid. MobyGames page: http://www.mobygames.com/game/pc-booter/alley-cat
