Review: Bubsy Two-Fur (1993, 1994, 2015) (PC/Steam)

Bubsy Two-Fur is a compilation that includes the first two Bubsy games, Bubsy In Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (1993) (better known as Bubsy 1) and Bubsy 2 (1994).  Bubsy is 2D platformer that has you playing as Bubsy the Bobcat.  Bubsy has to stop the evil yarn aliens from taking over the planet, so he must traverse though extreme terrains such as: The desert, the carnival, green hills, all the way up to space.  Bubsy 2 has you battling the evil yarn aliens once again but in much more challenging and much more diverse levels.  He sure is a Bobcat with an attitude and some nostalgia appeal due to these being re-releases of old games but do these games still hold up today?  What could possibly go wrong?  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Review: Arctic Adventure (1991) (PC)

Arctic Adventure is a 2D platformer that has Nevada Smith from Pharaoh's Tomb (1990)* make his return in this adventurous sequel. Our hero has gotten great praise for his finds in Egypt and now a month later we see that our hero is after something new, a great Viking boat that is full of great Viking treasure. Our hero studies for even more months and just happens to find a clue in an old skull. The clue was for that of a map that can lead him to that treasure but sadly he needs to find more of the map. Long story short, our hero must go to the Arctic and explore the caves in hopes of finding pieces of a map that will lead him to the Viking gold. (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Vinyl Record Pick-Ups!

Retro Game Review: Virtua Fighter Animation (1997) for the Sega Master System.

Virtua Fighter Animation for the Sega Master System is a game that you would not expect from this console, especially since it came out in 1997, a time where this console was long obsolete, even in the Master System loving PAL region.  With the word "Animation" part of the title, you'd expect this game to not be a game at all, you'll be expecting this to be an animated feature based on the Virtua Fighter series.  This game is not a cartoon at all but what the title is referring to is the animated series that ran during the mid-1990's, hence why that word is part of the title.  With that all said, this game has a story to it that goes like this:  Akira is wandering around South China and runs across an eating contest and enters it in hopes of winning and stuffing his face full of food.  While Akira is stuffing his face, we cut to another character, Pai.  Pai is running from a gang of thugs who are after her to return her to her father, Lau.  Pai manages to lose the thugs but soon runs into Akira in the most personal way,  Akira falls onto her and gives her a nice big sloppy kiss on the lips.  Long story short, they team up and gain allies along the way to put a stop to Lau...  But then things soon get more complicated.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).
