TITANIC: ADVENTURE OUT OF TIME (1996)_ WINDOWS

It’s been 109 years to the day since the ship of dreams slipped beneath the waves of the Atlantic ocean. And what better way to honour the legacy of the 1,490–1,635 souls lost that fateful night than by talking about a 90s adventure game. Specifically, 1996’s Titanic: Adventure Out Of Time, one of the first […]

DICK TRACY (1990)_ SEGA MEGA DRIVE

Release in 1990, Dick Tracy was yet another Comic Book movie that rode the coattails of 1989’s BATMAN, but to middling success. This probably has to do with that most moviegoers didn’t know who the f&@k Dick Tracy (or “DT” as we will be addressing him for the remainder of this article) was or is. […]

DRIVER 2: BACK ON THE STREETS / DRIVER 2: ADVANCE (2000/2002)_ SONY PLAYSTATION & GAMEBOY ADVANCE

Driver 2: Back on the Streets is the sequel to 1999s Driver and the second in the series of police undercover training simulators on the Sony PlayStation.

Feeling the burnout from working on two consecutive Tomb Raider games, most of the team took a break and moved to another project (which would become 2001’s Project Eden, […]

TOMB RAIDER II: STARRING LARA CROFT (1997)_ SONY PLAYSTATION

After the success of Tomb Raider, a sequel was inevitable and If Eidos Interactive lore is to be believed, Tomb Raider had saved Eidos from bankruptcy. Because gems like Olympic Soccer: Atlanta 1996 had not shifted as many copies as they hoped (fifteen). The sequel was ordered for the 1997 Christmas season but due to […]

TOMB RAIDER (1996)_ SONY PLAYSTATION

Now for an actual game, not a game that was a movie tie-in. Tomb Raider. Developed by the Derby-based Core Design and released on Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn in 1996. The game itself is still great and fun to play but is marred by the 90s lad culture that catapulted the game’s ‘Star’, the […]

LETHAL WEAPON (1993)_ NES & GAMEBOY

The second attempt at a Lethal Weapon game by Ocean Software did not come about for another year. This time, development was passed to another British software house, Eurocom Entertainment Software, a company that also has a prolific reputation for w*** tie-in games. Their version of Lethal Weapon went in a completely different direction and […]

LETHAL WEAPON (1992)_ SNES / AMIGA / ATARI ST / C64 & MS-DOS

A good way for us to start off with the first article for this (soon to be) very great retro gaming website, is to look at a game that is a terrible adaptation of a thing, that is part of a different type of media. A Video Game Movie Tie in of Richard Donnor’s hit […]
