Qix

You may never heard of this odd GameBoy Puzzle/ strategy game where you have to cover a certain bercentage of the board without being hit by the Qix, a collection of vector lines that expand and collapse swaying across the screen, and the Fuses which will follow the lines & try to kill you…

Animated Strip Poker

Phwoar! If there’s one thing that really got me going in the 1980’s it was pixelated women, and what made it even sexier was that the girl was drawn in 256×192 pixels…

Donkey Kong Jr. Math

It is fair to say that when it comes to Nintendo they usually treat their franchises right. With each new Mario, Zelda, Metroid or Donkey Kong game, they are often followed by a mass of critical and financial success.

Super Bomberman 4

You ever played Bomberman? Not yet you haven’t. This little Japan-only sucker is not only the best in the SB batch – it’s the best damn Bomberman game ever released.

Dork’s Dilemma?

There aren’t many C16 games that can claim to have a direct influence on a major Japanese franchise – and this isn’t one of them.

Dekorating Blues
