Remember my “The Vault” feature where I review old games? Well here’s my latest installment. I was contemplating the idea of a Resident Evil retrospective but decided to just review a few genesis oldies that delve into the spookier side of things.
Pros: Inventive and wacky, I can’t think of any other game quite like Haunting which features some very humorous visuals and great graphics.
Cons: This game is really only fun once for about a half an hour. It just gets so repetitive after that. You haunt someone, get sent to the underworld, haunt someone else, get sent to the underworld, drives me crazy.
Pros: An amusing side-scroller that includes features such as taking potions, throwing skulls and wearing skulls as Chuck has no head of his own.
Cons: It can be a little confusing navigating your way through some of the levels and doesn’t rise above to many side-scrollers.
Pros: Both games feature vibrant graphics and creative animated tidbits. Mutant League Hockey is very entertaining, especially with the feature of killing the other team.
Cons: Football games in my opinion were always terrible in the 16 bit era. They never makes sense and are basically always impossible. So that one sort of sucks but hockey works just fine. I just wish MLH didn’t have the forfeit option after you killed all the other teams players. Nobody wants to win by forfeit.
Zombies Ate My Neighbors (1993)
The Scoop: A parody of B-movies by Lucas Arts, Zombies lets you take control of two totally 90s teenagers waging war against zombies with everything from squirt guns to soda bombs.
Pros: The weapons are hilarious and I love that your character can drink a potion transforming them into a monster. Great graphics and music as well.
Cons: Gets a little harder later on but aside from that I love this game and wish I had my own copy.
