Hello world!

Welcome to Retro Game Age, your soon to be home for retro game discussion.  Join me on a trip down memory lane as I revisit classic and not so classic games and...[Read More]

Tiny Toons Adventures 2: Trouble in Wackyland

While there were many truly spectacular NES titles released in its waning days not every game was a lost classic.  The original Tiny Toons Adventures was a fun ...[Read More]

Dynowarz – The Destruction of Spondylus

I was never too fond of Dynowarz growing up.  It isn’t necessarily a bad game like Ikari Warriors II; it just suffers from being bland and uninteresting.  How t...[Read More]

Exile

Remember when old video game magazines would have numerous screenshots of cut scenes?  These were never labeled as such and often times would be mistaken for ac...[Read More]

Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers

During the Disney “renaissance” years in gaming there were bound to be a few games that slipped through the cracks.  When you’re rubbing shoulders with the like...[Read More]

Sol Deace

Now here’s an odd one.  Usually ports between the Genesis to the Sega CD were a one way street.  The vast majority of these only added grainy FMV intros and a C...[Read More]

A Little Break

  Just a heads up, I will be taking a two week break. Since starting the site in January I have consistently updated every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday wi...[Read More]

Chrono Trigger

Hironobu Sakaguchi.  Yuji Hori.  Akira Toriyama.  Three names, each a giant in their respective field.  Years before Square and Enix would merge they were at od...[Read More]

Super C

When I first played Super C I didn’t think much of it.  Maybe it was due to my extremely limited amount of time with it or I just didn’t feel like playing a Con...[Read More]

Samurai Ghost

Namco were one of the few developers to support the Turbo Grafx-16 in the US with a wide range of software. Some of these were hidden gems like Final Lap Twin a...[Read More]

Metal Warriors

Even with the knowledge that Metal Warriors was developed by Lucas Arts it’s still hard to believe that this is not an official entry in the Assault Suit series...[Read More]

Eternal Champions

When Street Fighter 2 was successfully ported to the SNES in 1992 it was a phenomenon that is rarely seen in the industry.  This was the hottest arcade game of ...[Read More]

Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics

Joe & Mac was a fun if flawed action romp released early in the SNES’s life and was a pretty damn good if rushed arcade port.  Congo’s Caper, a little known...[Read More]

Lost Kingdoms

These days From Software are mostly known for the Dark Souls series of games as well as an endless parade of Armored Core sequels and expansions. However before...[Read More]

TaleSpin

The kids of today really missed out on the golden era of Disney cartoons.  Back in the late 80s and early 90s every self-respecting kid hauled ass to get home i...[Read More]

Krion Conquest

Krion Conquest is one of the most blatant rip-offs you’ll more than likely ever come across.  That’s a strong statement but one only has to take a cursory glanc...[Read More]

Adventure Island II

As much as I wanted to like Adventure Island it skewed a little too closely to the platformer archetype laid down by Super Mario Brothers. It was also a reskin ...[Read More]

Ridge Racer 64

Back in the 32-bit era the thought of Ridge Racer or any Namco property appearing on a rival platform was pretty much blasphemous. Their partnership with Sony w...[Read More]

Final Fight

It’s not a stretch to say that Final Fight did to the arcade beat em up what Street Fighter 2 did for fighting games.  It was electrifying.  There had been plen...[Read More]

Super Dodge Ball

This is going to sound strange but growing up my elementary school never played dodge ball.  I can’t count the number of TV shows and cartoons that portrayed th...[Read More]
