Mark Plays... Nanotek Warrior (PSOne)


A cool little 3rd person perspective Tube shooter developed by Tetragon and published by Virgin in 1996-1997 on the original Playstation. The only platform it came out on.

Mark Plays... Nano Assault NEO (WiiU)


You need to stop the spread of a deadly Nano virus. You must fight to make cells healthy again. Sounds like a boring biology themed bit of educational software disguised as a game but it is far from anything remotely educational. Nano Assault NEO is a great twin stick analog shooter on the WiiU - available as a downloadable game. Read more below...

Mark Plays... 'Left' cartridges on the Atari 800XL (50 minute extravaganza)


Ever since I got my Atari 800XL I've been slowly expanding on my 'LEFT cartridges' containing all sorts of arcade ports. It's a bit of a weak spot of mine to try to get all sorts of classic arcade ports on various machines I own. The Atari 8bit line is no exception. I play each cartridge until the 1st game over and this results in about 50 minutes of video. Hope you guys enjoy this one as well.

I must say I just ordered a good microphone on Amazon.de, so things may be looking up on this end sound-wise.

Mark Plays... Some VIC-20 Classics (1hr extravaganza)


In this video I play quite a few of the classic arcade ports and well known games on the Commodore VIC-20. I grabbed the footage using a Pioneer HD-DVD-Recorder that allows me to grab the footage on the HD or directly on CD-R, DVD-R or DVD-RW. I use the latter so I can reuse the disc after I imported the files off the disc (a simple copy of the mpg stream) into

Okay it turned into an over an hour long extravaganza playing the games until the first game over and me babbling about the gameplay and the technology involved. Read more below...

Mark Plays... Android2 (C64, Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Gameboy Advance)


A little gem of a game originally brought out by Vortex Software on the ZX Spectrum, also ported to the C64, Amstrad CPC and even a remade version on the Gameboy Advance (as an entry in a demo competition). In this video I check out all the versions.

Sturmwind arrives at last!!!!!

Well after a long time (longer for many!!) Sturmwind arrived today. Certainly from the off- the hype around how this game looks seems to be well deserved - particularly when played through the VGA box. It isn't full screen - I guess the hardware - now getting on really - needs some help - but the borders are small - not really an issue.

Japanese N64

Just took delivery of a Japanese N64. I've been putting this off for some time. The plan is to upgrade those PAL games that got butchered in PAL (M64, MK64, Pilotwings, Waverace64) and others that got some PAL optimisation but are still slower and it is significant (e.g. F Zero X).

Did you enjoy playing Zelda? You'll enjoy this! The Princess' Heart is a newly released indie rpg for older Link fans. With a more mature storyline, Princess Aerin Goldheart faces problems like dealing with her cheating boyfriend Prince, an unforgiving father for a King and her own alcohol addiction.

Mark Plays... Silpheed (PC / MS-DOS)

Silpheed is the name of the ship you fly in this 1988 game released on MS-DOS, it was originally developed on the PC8801 & FM-7 computer systems and later ported to MS-DOS, Apple II and the Tandy Coco (!!!). I originally encountered this game first on the SegaCD/MegaCD but that was a remake of the original shown here.

A great sequel called Silpheed: The Lost Planet came out for the PlayStation 2 and I just happen to own that game as well so another video with that will probably pop-up eventually.

There's also a Silpheed game on the xbox 360 which is called ' Project Sylpheed' .
