You hit the button to flap the ostrich’s wings to get height which is the key to taking out the other knights by flying into them, dropping on top of them or somehow getting them to fall in lava. When you take out a knight then turn into an egg which you can collect for points, if you do not it will turn into a knight after a time.

Time Pilot Flash Game

Time Pilot was one of those flying games that just kept me interested as a kid. It had the feel of Sinistar without the heart attacking inducing, “Beware I live!” You could fly in any direction you wanted taking out bad guys while traveling through time to rescue your fellow pilots. Now you can play the flash version right here in the Obsolete Gamer arcade.

Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360)

These opening scenes set the tone for the game. The car arriving represents the onward thrust of modernity into a west that, in 1911, was still very wild. The land of Red Dead Redemption is one of liars, thieves and murderers. But it is not a soulless world, and that is something that lends the game a stark beauty. Amidst the gorgeous yet savage setting, there are people with good hearts who need saving but who also, frequently, offer help to Marston.

Feel like throwing a tantrum, there’s a Game for that

This is the game. You have various scenarios like Dad and the Kids, Bride at a Wedding and one of my favorites, Frustrated Office Worker. So you can pound on the table and knock things off the shelves and cause damage which not only sets a very bad precedent but scores you points. As the timer runs down you grab the table and flip it. Well, not really since it’s attached to the machine, but the feeling of tossing over a table is there.

Running Battle

Okay, first off, the graphics are what you’d expect from a game on the Master System. Simple, yet effective for the given hardware there (granted I’ve seen decent graphics pulled off nicely on a Master System, I mean look at Sonic Chaos for example, or Fantasy Zone even! They’re very colorful games, Running Battle tends to go for blander colors.

Super Mario Bros Crossover

So the game plays just like the original NES game, but as you can see in the trailer, the characters and levels are different such as being able to play as Ryu and Link and using special abilities from the different characters. The overall goal is the same, you go from left to right making your way through the worlds and defeating the enemies until you get to the fourth level of each world where you face Bowser. Now the levels have been tweaked and changed since different characters have different abilities to add more challenge and re-playability to the game.

Would you buy: N64 USB Controller

Personally, I did not love the N64 controller, I know a bunch of people that did but the original SNES controller felt so perfect to me that the button placement, the size and analog stick just felt, well it felt wrong. Now obviously this was just my personal opinion and later controllers, especially the Xbox control looks like took a page from the N64 and PSOne controller, but in the end, it looks as if this design along with the SNES was like a gold standard for controllers since the original Atari joystick.
