    Into the Dark

    Rated on April 03, 2014 by Azghouls

    It's busted beyond repair.

    There comes a time where you need to take warning about low budget games. Granted that some are absolute winners yet some are just downright rotten to the core. Those types of games makes you wonder ...

    Armed Forces Corp.

    A non-imaginary title spells a non-imaginary game and if the manual doesn't help, what hope do you have?

    When you have a title called ‘Armed Forces Corps’, it's frankly not imaginative by a long shot. It's like stating I'm playing a game called ‘Soldier’ or ‘Guy’. Neve...

    Undoubtedly Spy Hunter was a huge success in the arcades back in 1983. Has a James Bond type of feel where you drive a pretty impressive car in top down view, armed with the default machine guns at th...
