    Hexxagon

    Rated on January 12, 2011 by ChristianKiss

    Hexxagon is a simple yet fun MS-DOS board game with almost no replay value.

    1993... definitely a year to be remembered for the old-school PC gamers, especially due to the releases of id Software's DOOM and Westwood's Dune II. Meanwhile a very small group of developers made a ...

    As your skills get better, you'll want to play The King of Dragons even more!

    The Beat-'Em-Up genre was so popular in the 90s that a lot of similar games were released for the arcade machines. Most of them have so much in common that you'll keep asking to yourself if the develo...

    Fate is about unstoppable action combined with repetitive gameplay.

    A lot of titles tried to mimic the hack 'n slash formula from Diablo (1996, Blizzard), but what most developers can't understand is that games aren't made only of frantic gameplay, since story and eng...

    Sango Fighter 2 is a hidden gem in the middle of a fuss of popular 2D Fighting games.

    With so many Fighting games shining back in the 90s, it isn't hard to understand why Sango Fighter 2 (1995, Panda Entertainment) wasn't noticed by PC gamers. Back in those times, titles such as Super ...
