Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Take a group of normal teenagers and give them superpowers and giant robots in order to fight the forces of evil. That has always been the basic concept of the Power Rangers franchise that from the very moment of its creation was perfectly catered for video games. Over the years we have seen the Rangers…

Turtles In Time

If you are a fan of the type of review where a game is completely torn down and ridiculed for its short comings, this is not for you. In fact, this will be the complete opposite, a review that will teeter on the very edge of biased fan boy love letter. It’s time to look…

Disney’s Aladdin

Have you ever had a game in your collection that you just can’t remember how it got there? No fond memory of unwrapping it one Christmas morning or an anecdote about stumbling over a great deal at your local game store. This is that game for me, it has been in my collection for decades…

Super Bomberman 2

Does anyone remember the days when a death match wasn’t in first person? How about a time when multiplayer didn’t involve the use of an internet connection? Super Bomberman 2 takes me back to a time where games were much simpler and hours would be lost in the blink of an eye, coupled with an…

Quattro Sports

Secret of Evermore

Have you ever to traveled to another dimension? Fought a jacked-up T-rex while using a bazooka? Or maybe wielded an axe called “Knight Basher” and faced crazy marionettes haunted by an evil presence? How about all of the above? I have…and you could too with Secret of Evermore. On Oct 1995 Square Soft launched the…

Mario is Missing

Super Mario World is one of the greatest 2D platformers of all time, a statement that rings so true that it is almost an objective fact. That being said, I cannot recall a time that I was ever playing it and thought to myself “wow, this game is great but what it really needs is…geography.”…

Super Troll Islands

As children with no disposable income, I am sure we have all played our fair share of games both good and bad simply because they were available. Christmas and birthdays would sometimes bring a new game that we would play almost exclusively until the next such event. That is why borrowing games and the departed…
