By |2022-02-19T14:53:05+00:00February 18th, 2022|Retro Consoles|Comments Off on Jill Goes Underground – that difficult second episode

I’m willing to bet that out of those of you who played Jill of the Jungle back in the day, most of you probably didn’t play its two follow-ups Jill Goes Underground and Jill Saves the Prince. The reason for this is simple: Jill of the Jungle was free, while Jill Goes underground and Jill [...]

By |2022-02-18T14:42:12+00:00February 17th, 2022|Retro Consoles|Comments Off on Q*Bert for Atari ST and the world of public domain software

Back in the 8- and 16-bit home computer era, public domain software was the main means through [...]

I have always loved collections of old games for new platforms — and I’ve always been especially fascinated by collections of really old games. And so, when Atari Flashback Classics released for Nintendo Switch in 2018, promising a full 150 games from across the classic Atari arcade, Atari 2600 and Atari 5200 libraries, I knew [...]

When I first came across VTubers a couple of years ago, I’m not sure that I would have associated them with classic first-person shooters, but it seems that quite a few out there have quite a taste for the enduring appeal of profound carnage.

When your Editor isn’t running the show around here, dear reader, he likes to play old Atari games. He grew up with them, after all, and thought it would be nice to revisit some childhood memories. So it was, around this time back in 2018, that he kicked off his Atari A to Z video [...]
