  1. It's time for my Pac-Attack review. Recently I've been spending a lot of time with this game. For those who haven't played Pac-Attack it is a 1993 falling-tile puzzle video game developed and published by Namco for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis. Or to put it in simpler terms it's Tetris featuring Pac-Man. 😂 Your goal just like in Tetris is to eliminate the blocks to get as many points while trying not to hit the top of the board. In this game to add a little twist the Pac ghost's 👻 are lumped in with the blocks and to get rid of the ghosts and make the blocks fall just like in Pac-Man he's got to waka waka over and eat them. I enjoy the soundtrack I find myself humming along to it. On top of your regular mode there's also a puzzle mode with 100 levels and a multiplayer option. I give this game 8 out of 10. It's a fun game and I recommend giving it a try if you haven't. Below is some screenshots of the game and a PDF of the manual..Pac-Attack (USA).pdf
  2. Gates of Zendocon gets a solid 10/10 . I never got to experience this game on original hardware but I've been playing it on and off the last few days on my Evercade and have been having a blast. I'm usually not the biggest fan of Space Shooters, Shoot 'em ups or Horizontally scrolling shooters, but this game has held my attention where others have failed. From cool looking enemies to explosions and safe spots like the awesome looking base, this game has it all. This game was released in 1989 and developed by Epyx and published by Atari Corporation in North America and Europe exclusively for the Atari Lynx. In this game you travel through different universes by going through gates that teleport you to a base where you can repair your ship and then launch into the next level/Universe. Each level has different enemies from eyeballs to dragons. While going through the levels if you take damage your ship can loose its laser cannon leaving you with only your destructor shield and Phantom bombs. There are a total of 53 levels I am currently on level 16. Supposedly there are alien's that you run into that will help you along the way I haven't run into any that I am aware of yet, but I wanted to mention it in this review. On the first level there are two gates the first one will put you on easy and the second one will put you on a harder difficulty. If you haven't checked this game out yet I would highly suggest it! Below is a Map of Zendocon. Gates of Zendocon Map: Each level's gates are numbered left to right, top to bottom, as the terrain scrolls from left to right.

  3. The Evercade is a great system I got it for Christmas on sale and have all the current cartridges out for it. I use it a lot on breaks and stuff its a lot more portable than my switch and the games aren't as involved if that makes any sense more pick up and play. I'm really enjoying it right now I'm playing the Tanglewood and Xenocrisis cart as well as the Atari Lynx Cartridges since I never got to experience the game for the handheld. The genres id love to see more of is RPGs, Simulation and possibly more point and click adventure style games like Dracula for the lynx. Some of the ideas I had were Sierra Games cart 1, Bethesda Games cart 1 (The old dos elder scrolls games), MicroProse/Sid Meier Cart 1 assuming they could get the rights and button mapping for them i think it would be cool. ive never been able to figure out dos so if they could get it to just load into the game that would be amazing for me lol. I forgot to mention my favorite part of the system though has to be the included manuals.
  4. BurgerTime for me is a solid 9/10. BurgerTime is a arcade game created in 1982 by Data East. In this game you have to help Peter Pepper create hamburgers while trying to avoid Mr. Hot Dog, Mr. Pickle, and Mr. Egg. The easiest way to do this is by just focusing on the top buns. You can score extra points by crushing Mr. Hot Dog, Mr. Pickle, and Mr. Egg under a falling ingredients, or by dropping an ingredient while they are standing on it. You can use pepper shots to help stun enemies for a few seconds but beware you only have a limited amount of pepper shots. 5 pepper shots and 4 life's to start with to be exact. Like in other games for example Pac-Man food items appear on occasion, raising your score and adding one extra pepper shot when collected. There are a total of 6 boards and the levels increase as you go on. My one complaint about the game is at times it can get to hard for me to figure out which way to go as the more enemies on the screen tend to get me cornered. BurgerTime is an arcade classic in my opinion and every time I go to a Barcade or Arcade if they have a BurgerTime cabinet there I have to play it. If you haven't played this gem of a game I highly suggest it.
  5. The episode with Bandai America is live they sent the other questions off to Namco to try and get them approved to answer. We talked about the Digimon Franchise, and the Digimon Tamagotchi line. Episode 51: BanDai America Digimon | The Extreme Podcast | Spreaker Hopefully i can get Namco on down the line to answer some of the other questions. Enjoy

  6. I personally like the sly cooper games they are Platform stealth games if you can find the collection it has the first 3, also if you are into detective like games The Testament of Sherlock Holmes and LA Noire are fantastic.
  7. The recently released Super Mario Bros Game and Watch scores a Solid 7/10. When compared to the original Game and Watches its missing some features but there is a lot of goodies that sort of make up for it and it will bring you hours of joy. To start the box has a protective sleeve over it with a neat design on it. (Pictures below) But lets get into the meat of the Handheld the clock has Mario running through a level which you have 3 level faces to choose from that you are able to pick by pressing the Time button. While on the clock screen you are able to interact with the computer Mario that is running on the screen by pressing A or B. By doing so it will drop enemy's into the clock face and Mario will have to try and avoid, or defeat them. There are 35 events that happen on the clock face, from Mario moonwalking to Monty Mole appearing from the ground and running around. Depending on the time of day the face will also change to morning, evening, and night screens as well as change the enemy's that Mario is facing. To set the time and change the volume and brightness you will want to hit the pause/set button on the clock face screen. One hidden feature on the device is on the clock screen if you press and hold the A button for about 5 seconds you will be met with a screen for the Mario Drawing song which has subtitles in 7 different languages. Now there are three games on the device which are located under the games button you have Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, and Game and Watch Ball. If you are in any of the games by pressing the pause/set button you will pause the game and will be met with 3 options Sound, Brightness and Reset game. Now there are some hidden features on the games as well on Mario Bros 1 and 2 if you click the game to start and hold A on the menu for about 5 seconds before starting the game completely you can enjoy the games with Infinite lives which can be nice lol. On Game and Watch Ball if you do the same thing you can swap Marios head for Luigis. Now before we talk about what is missing I want to mention that if you do not have it plugged in it will shut off after not being used for a few minutes and it will show you a going to sleep picture. If you have it plugged in the device will remain on. Now my only Gripes for this Handheld is since it is a clock it would of been nice if Nintendo would have included a kickstand on it like the originals had, and if it would of had a alarm function. I also wish that they would have included one more Game and Watch game making it have a total of 4 games 2 Mario and 2 Game and Watch. Overall I have had a lot of fun with it and would say if you find it at a store id pick it up. It would make a great stocking stuffer or Clock for your desk you can buy stands to put it on at a arts store or online on sites like Etsy etc. I hope you guys enjoyed my review and have a good week everyone. 😃 | Website | Trailer |
  8. @HDN I will make note of it and ill ask if they have any knowledge of a possible remake. wouldn't that be something. 😃 and my podcast is called The Extreme Podcast.

  9. Hey Everyone I'm going to have a Bandai America Rep on my podcast if anyone has any questions you would like me to ask them let me know.
  10. Dreamfall Chapters is an episodic adventure game developed by Red Thread Games and Published by Deep Silver. It came out for PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, and Xbox One. It is apart of the game series The Longest Journey. ( I haven't played the previous games yet but I bought them recently) I discovered this game in 2018 and absolutely fell in love with it. From its Amazing Soundtrack. (Soundtrack YouTube) To its Beautiful Sci-Fi Futuristic level design and environment. (Which I enjoyed exploring every inch of) All the way to its core. Its Chose your own adventure style gameplay gives it a high replay value and its story is bound to take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. My friend and I played it roughly at the same time (He started playing a week after I did) and because of choices we made, we had different story's and even a different character. I give this game a 10/10. I have played it multiple times and have had fun every time. If you would like to watch my playthrough of it Click Here. ( Lightning Wolf Corp is a defunct thing I tried if you are curious about it maybe ill make a blog post) You can get the game for $20 on PlayStation and Xbox and $25 on steam. I hope you guys enjoyed my first review I decided not to go to much into the story as to avoid spoilers for those that want to play it. If you want to know more about the story here is the official Website.

      Never played it on the 2600.

      I have the A2600 version of GORF. It is slow firing, but I think it's a cool game. It has four levels, and they are kind of like Galaxian, Space Invaders, and Tempest. Then, in Level 4, you fight the Flag Ship. HDN is right about the slow firing mechanism, but it's OK. I think that you might like it. It is very close to the arcade version in layout.

      You know, I have changed my mind on GORF ever since @chas10e sent me a surprise copy in October! I now think that it's a pretty cool game on the 2600. While I still have a few gripes with it, I have come to enjoy it for what it is and have been playing it a bit recently. The missile-cancelling actually comes in handy in the third and fourth stages, which I don't think I have ever had the patience to get to before I got my cartridge. I know they couldn't implement it because of rights issues, but I would be really curious to see how they would have put in the Galaxians stage seen in the arcade. My guess is that it would be cut from the port regardless of rights issues.

      The weird thing about this port, to me at least, is that the ship is multi-colored. Why is that weird, you ask? Because in the 5200 version, it's solid! How strange is that; the "improved version" has worse graphics in that regard? Still looks like a better version of the game, though.

      Another interesting thing of note are the assets in the game. The arcade GORF reused assets from both Galaxian (for the enemies and the spaceship) and Space Invaders (aliens). Atari released versions of both games on the 2600 as well, and it's pretty cool to see how they compare to their GORF equivalents on the system. The Galaxip is multicolored in CBS's game and just solid white in Atari's Galaxian port. The invaders in GORF are also closer to Nishikado's arcade sprites. However, I think both Space Invaders and Galaxian on the 2600 are better than GORF.

      This is an interesting game, and one I've warmed up to. Always remember to give games a second try. You might just like them more than you used to.

  12. I love the ds. @RickR i highly suggest pokemon conquest it's literally pokemon meets risk.
  13. This came in yesterday and I'm so excited to be able to play this little gem again. I bought it when it originally came out and about a week later someone stole it from me. Needless to say I've got some history with this game and I'm going to be able to finally beat it 8 years later I can't wait.
  14. @HDN I found the Atari 2600 version pretty cheap i will defiantly have to add it to my list of pickups. @socrates63 😂 WRKP There is some good barcades near me Galaga is always a good one. @TrekMD Glad to be here. @RickR I love Tron if i remember correctly it had the transparent control stick on top of the backlights i have always loved the transparent controllers and consoles etc just seeing them tick as you play it always has seemed cool to me.
  15. Good read BurgerTime is one of the greats in my book.
