Xybots, Atari Games (1987) Take 2 players, drop them into a maze filled with increasingly more difficult layouts and monsters/robots and make it part Third Person Shooter and you’ve effectively got yourself Xybots. In taking from possibly the idea of Gauntlet but giving us an “in maze” view rather than the typical top-down view, Xybots […]

Funk of Titans is a new progressive side scroller for Xbox Live. It’s quirky and more than a little silly. There is fun to be had though in this side scrolling game. Story There isn’t much story to speak of with Funk of Titans. It’s combines Greek Mythology with modern music themes. You play as a […]

Xenophobe, Midway (1987) I imagine a meeting at Midway’s office… “Yes, let’s ride the success of Aliens (the film) the idea of huge monsters that kill humans very easily and very rapidly running around space stations and planets, nomming down people like candy and causing something to burst from their chests in that odd […]
X-Men Vs. Street Fighter, Capcom (1996) It’s the crossover nobody asked for and yet nearly everyone welcomes with its loud, proud, almost flamboyant use of colour, speed and graphic clarity, it’s X-Men Vs. Street Fighter. Taking a medley of X-men characters ranging from The Juggernaut (bitch!), Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, Cyclops, Gambit, Sabertooth and more. While […]
Warhammer is a very popular franchise. It branches across many media forms. Warhammer Quest is one of the newest entries in the franchise and is a PC port of a mobile game. It combines the pen and paper RPG feel of the old Warhammer in a tactics form. Story: The story of Warhammer Quest follows the format of […]
WWF WrestleFest, Technos (1991) At one point, before the current rage of WWF with “The Rock” and “Stone Cold Steve Austin” (which is likely showing my age right now but oh well) and after the likes of Giant Haystacks and Big Daddy, there was the pandemic of WWF wrestling featuring The Hulk (young version), Big […]
Wonderboy in Monsterland, Sega (1987) The original Wonderboy was a rather interesting little platformer that took the Mario approach, slapped in some graphics and sped up the fluidity of the gameplay. This outing of Wonderboy however has taken the adventure approach from platforming and put a lot more emphasis on combat, a pseudo RPG element […]
Wardner, Taito (1989) In what seems to be a complete rip in idea and execution of Capcom’s Ghost N Goblins, we get Wardner. In which a young thing (now known as FattyPiggyMan, and his girlfriend, the equally clueless, Madam ShitForBrains. Neglect to remember the first rule of talking to strangers, especially ones that look hooded […]
Volfield, Taito (1989) It’s interesting from time to time, to see just how someone works a plot into a puzzle game. In most cases it might just be tacked on as a means of explanation. In other cases it’s all about how well the player needs to do to rescue someone while playing Tetris and […]
Violent Storm, Konami (1993) Post Apocalyptia seems like such a lovely place. Despite the ruins and destruction there’s so many colourful, powerful characters out there. You’re not likely to get more colourful (in various senses of the term) than in Violent Storm by Konami. Everything in this game seems lush and vibrant and almost gives […]
