Doomdark’s Revenge Review

Doomdark’s Revenge Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Testing players just like it did back in 1985, Doomdark's Revenge is a complex strategy game but one that will entice as much as it will sometimes infuriate.

Ninja Boxing Calculator Review

Ninja Boxing Calculator Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
As a retro curiosity and historical piece, Ninja Boxing Calculator does the job, but it's really quite unexciting by modern standards.

R.Type Review

R.Type Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
There might be a subtle name change but R.Type is still as fiendishly difficult as it ever was.

Kavinsky Review

Kavinsky Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Kavinsky doesn't quite work as a fully formed game, but it's a vaguely interesting mix of beat em up and driving action.

Talisman: Prologue HD Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
It's pretty, and it will certainly conjure memories, but Talisman: Prologue is only an appetizer - not the main course.

Offering a bundle of Vectrex games in one attractive and easy to access package. It's fun but its age does show, of course.

Touch Arcade’s resident retro-gaming expert, Blake Patterson, has the details on Vectrex Regeneration, a Vectrex in an app, coming soon.

For those not familiar, Vectrex was very unique in the home gaming world of the 1980s. It had it’s own vector display and it’s own unique games. It was completely standalone, and completely awesome.

The Vectrex Regeneration app will include all of the games that were available for the original Vectrex. Member’s Only jacket and parachute pants not included. Look for it soon, but not soon enough for this Vectrex fan.

I feel a little under pressure to come up with the most fantastic egg based puns I can possibly imagine. Unfortunately, I’m no puns eggs-pert…ohh, there we are.

That pun out of the way, it pleases me very much to state that Dizzy, the famous egg adventurer of the 1980s, is back and will soon be splatting his way onto an iOS device. On 9th December in fact or Egg-mergence Day as Codemasters have decided to call it.

Dizzy, for the too young/inexperienced to know about, was the hero of many adventure games of old back on the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64. I’ll admit it now. Having owned most of the titles, my 7 year old brain never quite managed to complete any of them but they were fantastic fun.

Coming to iOS will be Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk, a remake of the classic 1991 adventure. Plenty of puzzles will need to be solved along with a healthy dash of platforming fun too.

We’ll be sure to have a review of it in time for its release. For now, enjoy the teaser trailer and plethora of screenshots below. It promises to be an egg-cellent time. I’m sorry.
