Mark Plays... Gradius II - Gofer no Yab? (PCEngine)

A great game from the Gradius series, this is the Gofer Gradius II game on cd-rom running on the Duo-R/PCEngine console. There's also a port of this game on the MSX systems. One of the amazing features of this game is the giant suns and firebird on the first level. Hard as nails!

In 1985 Konami released a great game called Gradius (also known as Nemesis) in the arcades but also on home computer systems and consoles. It was heavily inspired after Scramble which was released in 1981 and is considered the precursor or start of the series. In this video I play all the MSX cartridges that I own of the series. There are more games for the MSX though and a whole plethora on other systems as well. One of my favorite shmup series.

Frog Feast - New Homebrew for Sale for Sega, SNK Neo Geo and many other systems!

Frog Feast - Sega CD Version - 2005 (RasterSoft)Frog Feast - Sega CD Version - 2005 (RasterSoft)File this one under "surprised". It seems that RasterSoft has developed and released Frog Feast on cartridge for the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive compatible), which is also available on Sega CD, SNK Neo Geo CD & MVS, IGM PGM and Capcom CPS-1 formats. Other versions planned include Commodore Amiga CD32, FM Towns Marty, Philips CD-I, NEC Turbo Duo and Atari Jaguar CD, though all of those have preview versions already available for download. RasterSoft has also seen fit to release the source code to several of the versions.

Frog Bog - Original Intellivision Version - 1982 (Mattel)Frog Bog - Original Intellivision Version - 1982 (Mattel)It seems the game was inspired by Mattel's original 1982 classic Frog Bog, which also spawned an Atari 2600 version called Frogs and Flies. It seems though that Mattel itself was inspired by Gremlin's 1978 arcade game, Frogs, which utilized a background overlay. While is some ways Frog Feast is actually graphically less rich than the Mattel version(!), it's refreshing to see a homebrew game inspired by something a bit different than the norm.

Brief Thoughts on Innovation in Videogames through Meteor Blaster DX Signature Edition

After having purchased Meteor Blaster DX Signature Edition for the NEC Turbo Duo/PC Engine (it's in Super CD format) many months back, I was presented with the opportunity to review it for an upcoming issue of Video Game Collector magazine. Of course, me being me, I volunteered to both review the product, provide photos and interview the author, who was quite agreeable.
