Pier Solar Developers Bringing It Came From The Desert to Mega Drive

July 30th, 2014

Cinemaware classic It Came From the Desert was released back in 1989 for the Amiga and DOS and was due for a Mega Drive release in 1990 but it was eventually cancelled.

It’s now been announced that Cinemaware will join forces with Watermelon Games (creators of Pier Solar) to re-release It Came From the Desert on Mega Drive. Watermelon will also tweak the difficulty of the game as well as fix a game-crashing bug that existed in the original ROM.

You can register for a pre-order via the game’s official website. The game is due for a “Holiday 2014″ release.

Video Spotlight: Game Grumps Play Decap Attack

July 9th, 2014

One of the latest episodes of Game Grumps sees Danny and Arin tackle Decap Attack for the first time. It’s quite an endearing little episode as it’s not often you get to see someone’s ‘first time’ reaction to a game you are overly familiar with. Check it out below:

For those that don’t know, Decap Attack is the Western port of Magical Hat Flying Turbo Adventure. The original game is based on an anime series that was never shown outside Japan so it was given a visual makeover to distance itself from the source material.
