System-18 arcade shmup Hammer Away is a peculiar game that was due to release in arcades in 1991 but sadly never made it for unknown reasons. Now 23 years later, 3 shmup fans have managed to find the chips for the game in a warehouse in Portugal and the game has now been dumped making it available for play in arcade emulators like MAME.
2 gameplay videos of the game in action have been uploaded by the game’s finders below:

The Commodore 64 was an 8 bit home computer released in 1982 and would become one of the most beloved machines for gaming in the early days. Back before SEGA started making their own consoles and keeping the rights to their first party exclusives for themselves, many early computers received ports of SEGA arcade games. The Commodore 64 is no exception and the video below highlights a lot (if not all) of the SEGA arcade ports that made their way to the machine. There’s some interesting inclusions with the port of Space Harrier being particularly impressive. While some games transfer to the machine better than others, this is still an interesting showcase in how to make high-powered software run on a significantly under-powered machine.

The Sonic Show is 8 years old this year. That’s a long time to be running a Sonic-centric video series. Originally hosted on its own website, it now operates exclusively out of YouTube. To celebrate this milestone the show is releasing its first collection exclusive music and it’s called The Complete Mess Collection which to be frank is quite fitting.
