651st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts Selecting the order of games for the list can be tricky and mostly comes down to what I fancy at the time – for genre reasons or because I just really want to play something from a […]

594th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: NES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo/Sega For some reason, I kept confusing this game with Marble Madness for a long time. It doesn’t make any sense, none of it really matches, but the isometric perspective is similar and I haven’t looked much beyond screenshots. I’ll […]

566th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Atari Games Publisher: Atari Games After a break, back to the Midway collection.

555th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Williams Publisher: Williams Smash TV is a shoot ’em up descended from the likes of Robotron 2084. Its apparent twist? It’s meant to be a TV show. This worked for me, in a way, in some of the Wipeout setups […]

411th played so far Genre: Sports/Action Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1990 Developer: The Bitmap Brothers Publisher: Image Works The Speedball series (two entries) is a sports game.

358th played so far Genre: Flight Simulator Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo SNES fest! I do love obsessively playing a run of games from one console.

357th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Lucasfilm Games Publisher: LucasArts Woo! Monkey Island!

332nd played so far Genre: Platform Platform: NES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo So we’re back now to what is unambiguously the third (platform) Mario game. Released nearer to the end of the lifetime of the NES, it became one of the best-selling games ever – the highest grossing non-bundled game in […]
