      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Wrong Way Back, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Duck Hunt

      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Wrong Way Back, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Duck Hunt

      We've got another round of titles comin' at you and there's no better way for all the good boys and girls to celebrate the holidays than with some good retro gaming Just like the items under anyone's decked-out holiday decorations, it's all about variety. From beat-em-ups to straight-up old-school horror, we got you covered as always. Sit back, grab some hot cocoa, and boot up the trusty old console as we add a few more toys to that wishlist of yours.

      Wrong Way Back by Locked Door Puzzle

      Yes, we know it's already December, but horror and suspense are timeless-at least for some people. If that's the kind of vibe that tickles your fancy, then make sure to check out the latest Amiga CD32 release of Wrong Way Back by Locked Door Puzzle. A brand new game brings out the best "retro escape room" feels you can ask for. 

      It's all about a woman trapped in a strange room, and it's up to you to help her find the way out. No pressure, right? The game was developed using AMOS Professional and was an experiment in Amiga CD32 development. So, you'll need an actual CD to play it on a machine or have it emulated. You'll also need a gamepad with 2 buttons if you have a standard Amiga. While that may be the right way to play Wrong Way Back, it's worth checking out if your holiday season is beginning to look a lot like Halloween.

       

      Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 

      Nothing like spending the holidays with a bit of green-the badass kind. It's another beat 'em up update for none other than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The absolute classic is coming to the Sega Master System as a port of the original arcade version of TMNT.

      However, as of now it's still a work in progress, and whatever you see online will be part of the game's early version, it uses Devkit SMS, and a variety of other tools to guarantee that we can get that familiar, satisfying, and classic beat em' up experience that we all know and love. While we won't be screaming Turtle Power anytime this month, it's good enough of a present just to know that we have something to look forward to in 2023

      Duck Hunt by Manha Manha

      Last but not least, a classic that either brought you satisfaction or total frustration. So if you’ve been lucky enough to own a NES or Famicom and a light gun, Then we’re happy to report that Mahna Mahna just dropped the perfect nostalgia classic for you. The classic NES Game Duck Hunt is now on the Commodore 64. The game made its surprising return at the Transmission 64 third edition event this year, and everyone's been. Fast forward to today. You can now download it, enjoy it, and maybe even rage quickly when the dog laughs at you for missing some easy shots.

      No light gun, no problem. This game version has both gun and mouse support, so you don't have to worry just in case you left that plastic firearm back in your childhood. So if you don't feel like you're spending your downtime just sitting around and maybe wanna practice those old-school shooting skills, then pick up duck hunt for the holidays.

      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Immortal Ka, Boxx Remake, & Last Action Hero

      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Immortal Ka, Boxx Remake, & Last Action Hero

      As we enter December, we crank up the action as we wait for some nice seal-tight suggestions in the following weeks. There's no better way to kick off 2022’s last month than some ass-kicking. This time we're looking at a side scroller, a platformer, and a straight-up brawler. Perfect when it comes to satisfying every retro action connoisseur. We hope you came prepared because things are about to get wild!

       

      Immortal Ka

      We rarely get games that are both indie and completely new. Immortal Ka by Josyan checks both boxes. It's clearly an homage to Awesome 16-bit arcade Classics like Ghost and Goblins and even Super Big Karnak. So far, the game is just a prototype, but whatever's been finished is very much playable. The game follows your classic story from the olden times.

      The Gods have condemned all humans, so ancient Egypt finds itself corrupted. Now, thousands of evil creatures from the world of the Dead have come to tremendous. Maibe is a lonely hunter from the outskirts of Luxor who somehow gained some supernatural powers. She's the only one with a pure enough soul to save us. So it's up to you to make sure that she does.


      The game features, Egyptian-themed levels, nice aesthetics, and a complete arsenal of weapons to help you defeat all the mythological creatures that come your way. If you're into the myth boss love a bit of retro action and wanna save the world, then Immortal Ka is worth checking out.

       

      Boxx Remake

      Amiga owners and enjoyers can rejoice once more as we get another cool Home Brew installment. Back then, Lemming880 platformers Boxx 2 and Boxx 3 were released on the Amiga system. Both of these games were a ton of fun, as they required players to collect as many coins as possible, all while avoiding deadly traps, killing bad bosses, and aiming to reach the exit to complete each level.

      It was intense, for sure. Well, that's not exactly the news here. The spicy update comes in the form of Lemming880, releasing a full remake of the very first Boxx game. The Scorpion engine makes its ground return, giving the game updated graphics sound effects, And brand new coding based on the ongoing Boxx 4 project currently in development.

      It's nice to see all this come together and even nicer to know the Boxx remake is now available for download

       

      Last Action Hero


      The Amiga Live just released a hack of 1994 Amiga's Last Action Hero. So yes. Keep the Arnold Schwarzenegger memes coming. Earok dropped the surprisingly cool news saying “Amiga live did a hack of the Last Action Hero a while ago and I got permission to repost it here. It features a raft of gameplay balance tweaks to improve on the Notorious Film Tie-in”

      The particular hack is nice as it gives players who just discovered the game a smoother experience. We're talking about unlimited continues, more lives, a hundred percent health restoration, increased loop speed, and more

      While the movie wasn't the best one out there and the game back then didn't get much recognition, this little tweak in 2022 might just give it the cult following It deserves. Now, all we need is some really good voice acting.

      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Super Metal Hero, Tournament Arkanoid ZX, and Starfox EX

      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Super Metal Hero, Tournament Arkanoid ZX, and Starfox EX

      2022 brought its fair share of triple-A sequels and reboots, and it's no different when it comes to the retro side of things. Classics were made to be appreciated, and sometimes, reimagined. Thankfully, the retro dev community has enough passion to make all our dreams come true. We'll be taking a look at something new, something we thought was lost in time, and something we didn't think we needed until now. 

       


      First up, another surprise for all the Amiga owners and enjoyers out there. The ever-awesome Colin Vella is coding the much-awaited awaited kickass game Super Metal Hero In Blitz Basic.



      Working on graphics we got Tenshu and JMD is in charge of bringing the music to life. The development videos are live, and they're looking hot. The game has definitely come a long way since its first few times featured online. Not only has the dev team been optimizing it to work on a stock Amiga 1200, but the game also includes a new world, new levels, new backgrounds, new enemies, and a lot of firepowers. If you're into heavy artillery, and a whole lot of action, then Super Metal Hero just might be the game release you've been waiting for!

       


      Now, it's time for a blast from the past courtesy of a sweet mod for the ZX Spectrum, made by Martyn Carroll. We all remember Arkanoid, and it's about time it got something new. That comes in the form of Tournament Arkanoid, a tribute and callback to the classic.


      There's a lot of great artwork to go around, and Jarrod Bentley never disappoints. This mod comes in with a new loading screen crafter by Jarrod Bentley himself, and along with it, everything you've come to know and love about the original game. By that, we mean 32 levels of great difficulty, just like the arcades! It's a recreation of Taito’s official game from the old-school Tournament Arkanoid arcades. Since it was only available in 1987 in North America, it's nice to have it available on a larger scale in the modern 2020s. 

       


      So, this one's a bit of a different case. It's not a remake, a reboot, or a brand-new game. It's a ROM hack, but a cool one, if we're completely honest. It's for the classic arcade-style rail shooter Starfox and best believe we're doing a barrel roll into Starfox EX.


      What we get from this is a brand new story for the game and dozens of amazing features that take full advantage of the Super NES and the SuperFX chip We also get a brand new map with 17 new levels, new bosses, music, backgrounds enemies, a 3+ page pre-game menu to customize your experience, and a whole lot more. One of the best features is the Multi-Tap, which allows you to play the game a whole new way. It's straight-up old-school multiplayer, either with friends, Al-controlled teammates, or just you controlling ALL the ships. If you want a challenge, you got it. The 90s lives on, and always will, through games like this. Starfox EX opens the door to a variety of possibilities for so many other retro games-and let's be honest, we can't wait to see what comes next!
