Old Games: Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake

Owing that Kojima was sidelined for the development of Snake’s Revenge, the first follow-up to Metal Gear, plus the fact that Konami made numerous tweaks to the gameplay in a bid to make the game appeal more to Western gamers, Snake’s Revenge is vehemently lambasted by fans of series. However,

Pharaoh’s Tomb Retro Review

It is unusual for APG to review a shareware program, since they are often hard to obtain and may be found in so many different versions. Pharaoh’s Tomb is so readily available and comes so highly recommended, however, that we have made an exception. Indiana Jones had a few spears

This classic arcade conversion should be sitting on the top of our platform league. Released after much controversy by Ocean in the late eighties, it’s way ahead of other similar style games in the playability stakes. The Beauty o the whole affair lies in the incredible hidden object and bonus

1941: Counter Attack Review

Air combat games are typically hit or miss, but 1941 falls somewhere in the middle. It’s not horrible, but it’s not exactly groundbreaking either. 1941 is your basic mindless shoot-’em-up. As the pilot of a World War II biplane, it’s your job to shoot down Axis planes and sink Axis

Klax is an idea that sounds dumb at first but is actually fun. In fact it’s so much fun that you could almost forget Tetris while blissfully playing through it. Many titles in the genre have used stacking objects as a basic premise, but Klax comes up with something so
