Retro Game of the Week 164: Skyroads (PC)

By : Luis Zena

This week we have a classic released in 1993. It's a very simple game called Skyroads which involves a ship which you need to guide through a road but don't fall out of the road, you will die. A very simple game, yet so much fun. So many levels were build for this game and with different types of difficulty. Gotta love it. The sound effects are also pure PC magic. I recommend this game mainly for its simplicity. If you have an old PC lying around, fire this one up. You will definitely find it fun at least for a little bit. The best part is that you can get this game for free online. Which reminds me, I'm going to have a library of DOS games on my blog soon enough. 

Till next week! 



Manual Monday 038: Sonic the Hedgehog (Genesis)

By : Luis Zena
Another week, another manual. This one is based on the classic Sonic game for the Sega Genesis. This game is amazing even to this day. I gotta say, it's nostalgic looking at these pages. So many flashbacks!  Be sure to click here for the .pdf file of this manual.

I can't quite remember the name of the other title but Splatterhouse is definitely one I remember. It's a classic after all. The other game is also quite good but I somehow can't remember it. If you know, let me know!

Ads from the Past 430: Ondyne (PC Engine)

By : Luis Zena
This is a very fun shoot 'em up that was released for both the PC Engine and Turbo Grafx. I'm actually surprised this was release in the USA because of the lack of games in the Grafx library. Nevertheless, this is a fun game regardless which console you play it on. Shoot 'em up cutesy fun! 

Retro Game of the Week 163: Gun Smoke (Arcade)

By : Luis Zena
If you want a challenge, Gun Smoke is definitely the game for you. Starting the game, you will realize that you will have to spam three main buttons in order to defeat all the bad guys around you. One button shoots to the left, the other to the middle, and the other one to the right. You also have to move along and dodge bullets because one shot and you're dead unless you're on a horse, then your horse can take the shots. The game can get insanely difficult insanely quick! It'll take lots of practice in order to get far in the game. I believe there are ten stages but I could be wrong. I've only managed to make it to the second stage. I shall keep practicing! 


DOS Labels Volume 004: Math Rescue, Word Rescue, Wolfenstein 3D, and Others

By : Luis Zena
Here is the fourth entry of the labels for DOS games. These are based on the following games:
Clyde's Adventure
2400 A.D.
MicroMan
Crazy Cars III
Math Rescue Episode 1
Word Rescue Episode 1
Wolfenstein 3D
Prince of Persia

Below are the labels themselves. Remember to print them as is in order to get the right size even if it says the printer will cut off part of the page, it's fine as it'll only cut a bit of the border.

By : Luis Zena
Here is this week's manual. It's none other than Takahashi Meijin no Shin Bōken Jima for the PC-Engine. It's known as New Adventure Island here in the States. The game is a lot of fun and it's pretty much a remake of the first entry with some added twists. Need to see the manual? Just click here for PDF download of check the pics below!












DOS Labels Volume 003: Alien Carnage, Jetpack, Turtles, Aldo, Catacomb Abyss, and Oregon Trail

By : Luis Zena
The third wave is here! Be sure to check out the previous waves in the labels section in the article tab or just click here. This time, we have some odd games such as TMNT 1 and 2 and Aldo's Adventure. The rest are somewhat known especially with the other Keen game and Alien Carnage. Of course, you can see Oregon Trail in there and Catacomb Abyss 3D. We are digging into some odd territory now.
