YouTube Channel: Alex Kidd in Miracle World 2

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Ian Wall and some talented contributors from SEGA8Bit have developed a homebrew fan sequel to Alex Kidd in Miracle World for the Master System. The game ignores the events of Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle and instead re-imagines a sequel to Miracle World as a Master System title. The game is free to download via this link and can be played via emulator or flash carts. Take a look below for a short let’s play from us that shows the game in action:

Review: Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone is a PS4 port of the arcade title of the same name. If you’re not familiar with the arcade machine then the control setup is simplified to using just the Playstation face buttons for scoring the standard notes and a touch bar that lets you slide your finger across it to score slider notes. Every now and then you’ll have to score a combination of different notes together and advanced players can score hold notes and continue to combo other notes while still holding the hold note.

Review: Yakuza

Monday, August 7th, 2017

01

The first game in Toshihiro Nagoshi’s hugely successful Yakuza franchise is a fascinating little game because it showcases a lot of familiar elements that will stay with the series all the way to present day. Yakuza is an incredibly accomplished first entry in a series that has simply reiterated on its template instead of taking it in a completely different direction.

Review: The Golden Compass on Xbox 360

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

There’s something morbidly fascinating about SEGA’s late 2000s movie tie-in games. There’s so many of them and they’re all outsourced to little studios who were probably given an extremely tight deadline to work towards and the results are telling. Why on Earth SEGA commissioned a game based on 2007’s underperforming The Golden Compass (currently rocking a 43% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an opening weekend described by New Line Cinema as “a little disappointing”) is a mystery to me, but I imagine it’s probably down to being a family orientated movie with an insane amount of fantasy gimmicks that can be utilised for a video game.

Review: Streets of Rage for Master System

Sunday, January 29th, 2017

There’s something fascinating about seeing a much more advanced title being ported to a significantly underpowered system. In the right hands, these kind of ports can be an exciting experiment. What will the developer sacrifice in order to make the game run on such archaic hardware? More often than not, it’s the in-house studios who achieve the better results and with the Master System version of Streets of Rage that is definitely the case.
