Dirty Larry: Renegade Cop

Format- Atari Lynx Genre- Side scrolling 2D fighter/shooter I don’t know about you, but the very first thing I thought of when I realized this game existed was Leisure Suit Larry. This game isn’t a spin of LS Larry as a renegade cop though, but ...
Pengo Cover

Pengo

 I probably should have liked this game more than I did. Pengo is an overhead maze-puzzler, and I generally love these games. The ability to use my brains (for once) in a video game, add a little action, sprinkle in some cutesy characters and music, ...

The Castlevania Adventure

This time around I will discuss Castlevania for the Gameboy. This title is quite old but interesting overall. The game does show age as soon as you play it, I mean it moves slower than other Castlevania games but that’s mainly because of the limited ...
Lady Sia - Gameboy Advance

Lady Sia
