Do you wanna be the very best? If so, Retro Gamer issue 161 might just be the magazine for you! Take a look at the video above, or read on to find out what’s inside…
We’re leading off with a feature on the creation of the first generation of Pokémon games – the original Japanese Red and Green versions, the enhanced Blue version which formed the basis for the international releases, and the special Yellow version. There’s an exclusive interview with Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda, as well as a variety of other Pokémon experts.
Elsewhere in the issue, you’ll find features on the creation of the Atari 2600 Jr, the 8-bit hit Horace trilogy, the 16-bit stop-motion game Clayfighter and the cult Super Famicom platformer Umihara Kawase. You’ll also find ultimate guides to the fishy shoot-’em-up Darius and the trippy shoot-’em-up Rez, the latter of which has just been revived as an incredible VR game.
Also inside, a Licence To Thrill feature on the 16-bit adaptation of Toy Story, a sit-down interview with Paul Clansey, and a look back at the early third-party Imagic. Plus, we run down the Top 25 Game Boy Advance games based on community votes and look back at obscurities on the Amiga CD32 in this month’s Minority Report. Of course, we’ve also got your favourites like Classic Moments, Retro Revivals and Back To The Nineties.
