Deluded Mind (First-Person Asylum Drug Romp)

Deluded Mind (First-Person Asylum Drug Romp)

  My first thought on anything trying to frighten me using an asylum setting is one big looooooool I don't feel like writing. Whoops. Deluded Mind came up rather randomly while I was searching for another scray [sic] video game to review and I have to tell you it was not the theme that drew me to […]

Horns of Fear (Old School Horror Puzzle Freak Out)

  Boy do I ever remember games like this. When my family finally got a legit computer in the early 1990s, the first game I played on it was The 7th Guest, which you likely know. I won't even bother linking it because you're a total provincial if you don't know about it. Suffice to say, if the […]

First Winter (Retro Cold War Horror)

Wow it's been so long I've played a game like this, and to see someone capture an era I actually lived so accurately just, uhhh... First Winter is a survival/puzzle horror mash from indie developer and programmer Dan Sanderson, whose previous work includes three titles prior to this, and who I assume probably lived in the 1980s.

In Celebration of Violence (Action/Adventure RPG Blood Fest)

This is just such a great game. In Celebration of Violence has been at least getting decent press since its release in February of this year, but it needs a lot more, otherwise the developer/producer behind it, Julian Edison, won't get that sweet impetus he needs to make some more games son. If you're looking […]

AEGIS 2816 (Geometric Twitch Shooter)

Here's a fun one. Or I mean a fun one. I was first drawn to the design of AEGIS 2186 because of its simple, minimalist approach to the space shooter genre. If you're familiar with Tempest, Gyruss, and others, this little beauty, still largely unknown, has similar trappings, yet its modern approach is to its benefit. It relies on geometric […]

Card Quest (Old-School RPG Card Slam)

In case you didn't notice, Deaf Sparrow has dabbled in video game critique before, I just wanted to think about the best direction to take, and based on my current music review output, it made the most sense to focus on up-and-coming developers with a small amount of press, as well as games that fit […]

The 10 Worst Atari 2600 Games (E.T. Is Not One of Them, Duh)

Yeah, sure, it's been done, but it's never been done right, and in this case it's being done again because we're deleting the original blog.  So yes, this is a rewrite of a previous article, but everyone loves these things.  However, in this case, there isn't a proper 'top ten worst' list for the Atari 2600. They all […]
