rauserZ.jpgIs it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a remake or a demake? And anyway, what sinister programming magic is this? These questions might run through your head when you see LuftrauserZ, Paul Kollers's C64 port of Vlambeer's dogfighting arcade shooter Luftrausers.

I do love me a good roguelike, but these things are quite the time sink. Level up your puny little hero, explore vast labyrinths, amass riches - that stuff usually takes a considerable amount of time. But fret not, Realm of the Ghost King respects your time, offering bite-sized sessions that will easily fit into your coffee break.

Action-Platformer Cally's Caves 4 Brings Back Those Goofy Jumping Sounds Of Old

Remember Billy Blaze? Also known as Commander Keen, he is fondly remembered for his action platforming exploits in the early nineties. The Commander Keen games were in many ways leading the way in the pre-Doom shareware era and are still fondly remembered by many players. 25 years later, along comes a little series called Cally's Caves. 12-year-old me would have played the hell out of its latest chapter, Cally's Caves 4.

AER - Memories Of Old Is At Its Best When You're Just Enjoying The Moment

January 10, 2018 9:10 AM | Thomas Faust

aer0.jpg
I'm slightly disappointed that AER - Memories of Old didn't leave more of a lasting impression on me. I've been looking forward to this low-poly open world exploration adventure for a while, but now that it's been released, I don't really think about the game at all when I'm not playing it. However - and bear with me here, because this might sound weird - this is actually a good thing. You see, AER is all about enjoying the moment.
