Tin Star (SNES)

Prediction

I’m sorry everyone, I have failed you! When I started playing Tin Star, I did it with the intent to beat it and give it a proper full review. Now I’m half way through the game and I’m calling defeat. I simply can’t keep up with the game and it is too much for me to beat without cheating. I know I already use infinite lives cheats to get through most of the games I play, but I draw the line at infinite health. Still, I already have a few hours invested in this game so I’m going to review as much as I’ve seen. read more

Pilotwings (SNES)

Pilotwings (SNES) - Full Cover

Prediction

Welcome back to another 30 minute review everyone. Today we’re going to be taking a look at a true SNES Classic, in fact it was a launch title here in North America. I of course speak of the wonderful title Pilotwings. The game itself is rather simplistic, but what makes the game so memorable is the extensive use the SNES’s Mode 7 capabilities which allowed 3D graphics on the 2D system. In essence the game was basically a giant tech demo for the then new mode 7 graphics. Nintendo however has a great history with making amazingly fun tech demo games. Just look at Wii Sports. It’s still listed as one of the best games for the system, and that was a pack in game just to show off the new motion controls. read more

Taz-Mania (SNES)

Taz-Mania (SNES) Full Cover

Prediction

If you’ve read some of my other Looney Tunes articles, you might already know that Taz is my favorite of the bunch. You might also know that growing up I owned a Sega Genesis and not a SNES. Naturally I owned Taz-Mania for the Genesis and it was one of my favorite games. Admittedly it wasn’t a great game, just a fairly generic platformer, but I loved it because you got to play as Taz. I didn’t recognize most of the other characters and enemies since it was based on the show, and I could rarely remember when it was on, but that’s ok, I loved it all the same. read more

Pac-Attack (SNES)

Pac-Attack (SNES) - Cover

Prediction

Our One Year Anniversary here on the site is just around the corner. It’s amazing, I know, somehow I’ve managed to keep typing gibberish about videogames for an entire year. Anyway, to bring the year to a close, I thought I’d go full circle and review another non-traditional Pac-Man game. In this case, that game will be Pac-Attack for the SNES.

Pac-Attack (SNES) - 01

Pac-Attack looks like it’s going to be the love child between Pac-Man and Tetris, two of the biggest names in classic gaming. Considering Pac-Man and the ghosts are going to be thrown into the mix, I’m guessing this game is going to be taking more of a Dr. Mario approach to the gameplay rather than a more traditional Tetris game. Even with that mindset going in, I’m not entirely sure what to expect from this game. So let’s just jump on in, shall we? read more

Mario is Missing! (SNES)

Mario Is Missing! Front Cover

Prediction

Mario might be the mascot of the series, but Luigi has always pulled his own. He’s even gone so far as to star in a few of his own games. Most people would probably know of Luigi’s solo adventures in the Luigi’s Mansion Series, but he was actually the star of his own game long before that with Mario is Missing.

Mario Is Missing! (SNES) - 01

To be honest, this is a game that I know mostly by name only. I know the previous fact of it being one of Luigi’s solo adventures, but other than that I only know what I’ve gathered from the rare screenshot. These are very confusing because they show Luigi running around what looks like normal cities as opposed to the usual mushroom kingdom settings. So really, I’m not sure what to expect going into this. read more

Mecarobot Golf (SNES)

Mecarobot Golf Full Cover

Prediction

In real life, I hate sports. I don’t play them, I don’t even watch them on TV. I simply have no interest in them. Sports videogames on the other hand I generally like. And for some reason, my favorite sports games are always the golf games. I’ve never been quite sure why. The only thing I can think of is that I’m a bit of a math nerd, and golf games are about 90% math. The angle and power of the swing, the range of the clubs, the direction of the wind, everything is just a complex math problem. read more

Paperboy 2

Paperboy 2 - 01

Prediction

Paperboy is a classic game that everyone should have played at least once. It’s a fun game where even if you’re not very good at it, you can still enjoy what you do experience.

Paperboy 2 - 02

I’ve never played Paperboy 2, and I’m not sure where it can improve upon the original other than a graphical face lift. That’s not a bad thing really, the original game was amazing, and better graphics could only improve on an already winning formula.
