634th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Irem Publisher: Irem As we go back to the eighties, we get to one more of the many, many side scrolling shooters. I don’t mind them too much – they are fun enough, often having something good to look at […]

630th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: ABA Games I have ragged on Tempest derivatives before, as often they seem to add some slightly fancier graphics (with still a retro look) without really making the game feel that much better. Torus Trooper derives from that formula yet […]

587th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I can’t say I’ve enjoyed the previous Resident Evil games much.

586th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1983 Developer: Atari Publisher: Atari There are many different games called Star Wars.
