Retro Thursday seems cool enough... I think it just takes getting used to after having Retro Monday at the forefront of our minds for so long.

I'm not usually around on Thursday nights but I will dial in when I can.

:lol: . Sorry, dude, I’m usually visiting my parents on Thursday nights. Once I’m back at work I probably won’t, so maybe then I will be able to join in on a more regular basis.

Time for some forgotten Game Boy classics. (Reviews from Total! magazine.)

Dr Franken
Borrowed this from a friend. Undoubtedly one of the best GB games I played.

Beautiful platform adventure with detailed graphics. Flippin' brilliant!. 92%


Monster Max
Developed by Rare, in 1994 GB Action magazine rated this isometric adventure title as the Game Boy's best ever game.

Rare have produced a fantastic 3D adventure. A very special game indeed. 90%


Parasol Stars
This is the sequel to Rainbow Islands and Bubble Bobble. Another game I borrowed from a mate, I remember playing this while waiting to be seen in hospital. I cannot remember why I was in hospital, but I do remember the fantastic music on this game (a midi version of the Lambada).

Don't let the cutesy graphics fool you, this is tough a very, very playable indeed. 92%


Just one more note on Parasol Stars that I've just learned.

"A ZX Spectrum port was planned, but later cancelled. The game was also planned for the Commodore 64, but it was cancelled as well. Ocean initially explained that the developer's computer was stolen in a burglary, but it was later revealed that the game was scrapped after the freelance developer's wife destroyed said computer in a drunken rage, along with the backups of the work."


:lol:

Parasol Stars is the oft-forgotten follow up to Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands so I've picked that. Great wee series.

Check out some of our stuff!

In for Monster Max. Never played it, but it looks terrific for a GB title.

As I don't want to sully the beautiful memories I have of the other two, I've voted for Monster Max as I've never played it.

Hey guys, I know what you're all thinking. 'Already with this gooseberry fool?' well, yeah, my kid has a thing going on up the comp and I don't think I'll be available to do the stream until after 10, which I can do, but I'm wondering if you would all rather me do it tomorrow?
