It was all quiet on the Pinball Brothers front since the demise of the Heighway Pinball venture a few years ago. Just like the rise of the phoenix (Ed: or should that be Xenomorph?), so have the Pinball Brothers !

We turn our attention to the ZX Spectrum now for some retro gaming goodness, as if you love playing Arcade games whereby rescuing hostages is the aim of the game, then you might like playing ' Agent Blue' developed by José Silva, Jaime Grilo and IK (Artur); a typical arcade game for the Spectrum 48K (no music) / 128K (with AY music) made using AGDX (a modified version of Arcade Game Designer 4.7)

If you remember games such as Arkanoid; an arcade game first developed by Taito in 1986, with the bat like device scrolling from side to side at the bottom of the screen, bouncing an orb back and forth and smashing blocks for a high score. Then you might like this rather unique Amstrad demo. As in 'BriXen' a CPC GAMEDEV CONTEST 2020 WINNER by Crazy Piri, you must bounce a coloured orb around the
Sometime back we mentioned the classic game of H.E.R.O, which was first released way back in the 1980's for the Atari 800/2600, ColecoVision, C64, C128, and Sinclair ZX Spectrum, was not only being overhauled for the C64 but was also coming to modern systems as an inspired game called 'Bobby Bombastic'.

So why is this game getting a mention yet again on IRN? Well it seems as if the C64 is about to get in on the entertainment, as Bubble Soft

By: D.C. Cutler, U.S.A. There were a lot of “Doom” copycats after the game’s enormous success; “Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead’s Revenge” is probably the most unusual rip-off. There are moments while playing it where I’m not sure what my objective is or if there even is an objective. Clips from the “Pumpkinhead” sequel are spliced into the game. The […]The post The Worst DOOM Copycat first appeared on AUSRETROGAMER.
