Alien Crush Returns

The biggest change between this game and the original is of course the graphics which are lovely and suitably grotesque, including pulsating sacs, toothy mouths, slimy tubes, scuttling insects, and all manner of horrifying beasts.

Community Profile: Game Casa

I started out gaming with classic arcade games and the Atari system. I spent many hours of my childhood at other people’s houses playing video games with other guys. It didn’t matter whether or not I really even liked them. If they had Nintendo, it was a sure bet they would get a knock on the door from me. I was like a Victorian-Era English Street Urchin, “Excuse me, might I come in for some Ninja Turtles?”
