Captain Quazar

Captain Quazar
2

Since giving up the ghost as a console manufacturer and moving into PC software, 3D0 got off to a promising start, but then Captain Quazar happened. Featuring the camp antics of a space hero, this lame outing would have barely passed as a 16-bit console game. The story is simple. Quazar is an inter-planetary space […]

Frogger’s Adventures: The Rescue

Frogger’s Adventures: The Rescue
3.5

Frogger actually has a long history on the PC. First appearing as an arcade game in the 80s, it was remade by Konami in 2002 (Frogger Beyond) and then again with Frogger Adventures one year later. The game is still a top-view platformer tailored for a very young audience. The game world is beautifully bright […]

Storm Angel

Storm Angel
3.5

R-Type, Tyrian, Project-X… all of them classic side-scrolling shoot em ups and nearly all of them forgotten to time. There were, however, some attempts at remakes, and one of the lesser ones was Storm Angel. It sports 3D graphics in place of the traditional 2D found in its progenitors, but the action is pretty much […]

Balls of Steel

Balls of Steel
4

With quality tables, good action, and even an appearance by Duke Nukem, Balls of Steel, the long-developed game from Pinball Wizards, tries its best to not be just another pinball game. The tables are saturated from top to bottom with well-drawn art; aside from some cool pyrotechnic effects that pop up here and there, these […]

The Adventures of Lomax

The Adventures of Lomax
3.5

The Adventures of Lomax is a platformer from start to finish, similar to Crash, Gex or Earthworm Jim. It’s defining feature is that it’s based on the Lemmings universe. You control Lomax, who is a smarter-than-your-average Lemming, and have to run, jump, dig, build and throw enemies through twenty odd levels. Visually, the game is […]

Chaos Control

Chaos Control
3

The year is 2050, and the Kesh Rhan, an evil and highly advanced civilization, is hungry for new turf — Earth’s turf, to be exact. But never fear; you, as Jessica Darkhill, are Earth’s best hope against a surprise alien attack. You’ll pilot a fighter craft against swarms of enemy ships about to storm earth, […]

Future Cop: L.A.P.D.

Future Cop: L.A.P.D.
4

It’s the future, and Los Angeles has degraded into a smoggy trashheap of illegal drugs, rampaging mutants, and super-villains with cool names who enjoy clubbing baby seals and taunting the police. To keep law and order, the L.A.P.D. has created a bipedal, ass-stomping robot loaded with enough firepower to level a city, and lets it […]

Mortal Kombat 2

Mortal Kombat 2
4

Two-player beat em up games go back to the early days of gaming, but few series (outside of Tekken) have left a more poignant mark on computer and console players throughout the 90s than Mortal Kombat. The first game of the series was great, but it wasn’t until the sequel came into being that things […]
