725th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: WayForward Technologies Publisher: WayForward Technologies Happily, unlike other digital platforms, DSi games are still very accessible for all players. One of those that’s been waiting on my 3DS for years has been Mightly Flip Champs. It’s one of those games that […]

#817 Bionic Commando Rearmed

717th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Grin Publisher: Capcom For some games on this list, we are playing the remake rather than the original. Bionic Commando seems to have been a rather beloved NES game with some impressive time attacks. I doubt the latter factored into […]

711th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: WayForward Technologies Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve seen A Boy and His Blob before, as a NES time attack video. I got the basic idea, feeding this blob jellybeans that made it transform, but the full gameplay always stayed vague. I knew I […]

699th played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Skip Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo So there are a few action/adventure-like games left that feature you playing as a robot – aside from this, we’ve yet to play Rocket: Robot on Wheels, and I believe Space Station Silicon Valley is another. It means […]

694th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Nintendo Wario is a bit of an odd one, isn’t he? Starting off as a villain, he took over platforming duties on the handhelds in his Wario Land series (until that went back to Mario again) when he moved to […]

#639 Yoshi: Touch & Go

688th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo From the different Mario spin offs, the Yoshi series feels like the most enduring, but also the one drawing most on Mario’s past, using enemies and really just being story prequels with a different protagonist. At the same time, […]

674th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Tehkan Publisher: Tehkan Here’s a simple one – again one of the oldest games on the list. The screenshots look a bit like Pang, but clearly you’re moving around what feels like a superhero rip off – Astro Boy with a Bat […]

649th played so far Genre: Platform/Fighting Platform: PSP Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Tose Publisher: Capcom I’ve not done the best at Ghosts ‘n Goblins or Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, two arcade platformers that, by virtue of being arcade games, are pretty difficult. By 2006, however, arcades are no longer the primary way of playing games […]

635th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Various Year of Release: 1983 Developer: Matthew Smith Publisher: Bug-Byte/Software Projects Our next game is another early platformer. This one is inspired by Miner 2049er and will lead to future game Jet Set Willy. It’s an early platformer which looks fairly basic – so yeah, this time I […]

619th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Various Year of Release: 1983 Developer: Doug Smith Publisher: Broderbund/Ariolasoft I’m not going to claim any great affinity with Lode Runner, but I remember playing a version of this at some point and becoming obsessed for a bit with its large number of levels and built-in level designer.
