๐Ÿฅท Shadow Gangs Dreamcast Review 8/10 "More Ninja Action Than You Can Shake a Katana At!" ๐Ÿฅท @ShadowGangs @WaveGameStudios #IndieGames #GameDev

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

The next step on WAVE Game Studios’ quest for Dreamcast world domination, Shadow Gangs is a 2D platformer (mostly) that takes a lot of inspiration from the arcade classic Shinobi, in terms of visuals and gameplay.

You are Master Dan, a ninja master who sets out to take down a ninja army and rescue his family in a plot that’s so ninja-centric that it feels like it was written by Godfrey Ho. Good.

๐Ÿชฑ Tapeworm: Disco Puzzle | Dreamcast | Review | 8/10 "A game that will worm its way into your heart" ๐Ÿชฑ @LowtekGames #IndieGame #IndieGameDev #RetroGaming

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Lowtek’s previous title, Flea! Was very much loved in the GF towers, especially by me. With addictive gameplay, crisp visuals, smooth animation and music that was of Bubble Bobble-level catchiness, it was very much a winner.

I’ve been following the development of Tapeworm for some time, and even picked up the t-shirt from Lowtek Games’ website as I loved the image and yes, the pun.

Of course, the proof is in the pudding….can the finished game stand up to the high quality of the pun-title, premise… and developer Alistair Low’s Tik-Tok videos?

Yes, yes it can.

๐Ÿฆ—Flea! : Special Edition | SEGA Dreamcast | Review | 7/10 | "On the face of it that sounds quite grim" ๐Ÿฆ— @WaveGameStudios #GameDev #IndieGames #SEGA

Flea! is an upbeat little platformer that was originally released by its developer Lowtek Games with a very limited run for the NES and Dreamcast in 2020. This month saw the game re-released for the Dreamcast as a ‘special edition’ by the Norwich-based publisher WAVE Game Studios, complete with a separate soundtrack CD and all wrapped up in a jewel case with a PAL-style design.

I do love covering new releases on classic systems. When I received the accompanying press kit for Intrepid Izzy from Wave Game Studios, there was a statement in which the game was described as a blend of Sonic the Hedgehog, Castlevania and Streets of Rage.

I wasn’t sceptical so much as squinting into the distance, trying to visualise what that mash up would look like.

It looks like Intrepid Izzy, as it turns out.

๐Ÿ•น️ Which Video Games Were The Best Arcade To Console Conversions? ๐ŸŽฎ #Retrogaming

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Back when the Arcades ruled the video games world the ultimate accolade was to be seen to produce an arcade perfect conversion onto home consoles and computers.

As a gamer you'd look out for the phrase arcade perfect in any review and you knew that was the game to buy if those immortal words were uttered.

It got me thinking about some of my favourite arcade to console conversions over the years and I have compiled a nice little top 5 to show off my fave arcade to console conversions.

So the SEGA Forever Service is alive and kinda kicking.

It’s had its detractors but you can’t deny that it’s exciting to see which titles that SEGA will release next.

So far the list is quite impressive and not just Megadrive games either!

☆ What is Arcade Perfect? ☆

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Growing up in the 80’s and the 90’s, Video Games always strived to hit the highest accolade in gaming at the time. That accolade was the notion of being ‘Arcade Perfect’.



It was a lofty ambition for an 8 Bit console or Computer and an achievable stretch for the 16 Bit consoles of the early 90’s.



It’s the term that I would hope for in any video games review of the time and turned a maybe buy game into must have game.



The term has fallen away over the years as the console and computer powerhouses of the last couple of generations have exceeded the Arcade games arena in most cases.



Thinking about this term I began to let my mind wander to those halcyon days of Arcade Perfection and started to compile myself a list of the games from that era that reached that Arcade Perfect Accolade.

Retrogaming

My retrogaming sessions usually concentrate on one particular game and I play it to complete every last part of the game before I move on….

When you play a video game solidly for months on end you begin to start looking at it in a different way…

It's normally at this point when I tend to start looking at potential for games within video games…

Trying to make up a game within a video game involves using the games mechanics to create a task or an aim that the developers didn't actually intend for…

Over the years I have created many of these sort of sub games with help from my friends and usually involving copious amounts of alcohol to get the creative juices flowing..

I invite you to read on and take a look at my favourite 3 examples...
