    Review Summer Carnival '92 RECCA

    For shoot 'em up experts only

    The release of this game on the 3DS eShop is a bit of a strange occurrence. Summer Carnival '92 Recca was, as you might guess from its odd name, created for a shoot 'em up game competition held in 1992, exclusively in Japan. It was only available from those competitions, so the supply was quite limited and, as a result,...

    Review Digital Champ: Battle Boxing

    Digital Champ Battle Boxing is a first-person-perspective boxing title that plunges players into the raw intensity of the ring!

    When it was first released in 1989 Digital Champ caused quite a stir. Boxing games up to this point had been graphically modest affairs; Punch Out! was (and some would say, still is) the title of choice for prospective pugilists thanks to its entertaining gameplay, but..

    Review Break In

    A bit of a break from the norm of Naxat Soft's other games.

    Break In could have been a great game where you could play a burglar trying to steal some precious jewels; instead it is pool game simulator. These games used to be ten a penny in the arcade halls of old so it is only fitting that some home conversions were made. I am no expert on the game...

    Review Psychosis

    This is a side-scrolling shooter played in a world created from the mind of a twisted demon.

    The PC Engine/TG-16 is a machine that is famous for its wide and diverse range of shooting titles, but Psychosis (also known as Paranoia in Japan) is one title that you might not be familiar with, despite the fact that it was deemed worthy of a Western release back in the day. We also like to see..

    Review Devil's Crush

    Shoot the ball onto the board with the Devil Shooter, then use flippers and nudging to keep it in play and rack up a high score.

    After the wonderfully wacky Alien Crush you would have thought developers Naxat would have struggled to create an even more unhinged pinball simulation - but you’d be wrong! Devil’s Crush improves on its spiritual...

    Review Alien Crush

    Alien Crush is a fan-favorite pinball game that features a sinister sci-fi theme.

    It's easy to dismiss Alien Crush as "just another video pinball game," but those who do so will be missing out on an outstanding Turbografx-16 game. While it is a pinball game at heart, Alien Crush somehow takes a great Alien theme and manages to craft a very unique and long-lasting pinball gaming..
