"The brand new yet highly collectible GBA Christmas Double Pack!" Review(ish)

Firstly, may I just say that in a highly more sober state, I've actually already done this review before. Secondly, may I also state, that Blogger was being an arse, so I lost the whole thing, despite Blogger's whole "Ooohh! I update and autosave automatically now, my blogging chums, apparently untrue bullshit!"

So, as it goes, I've already written this review! And how much better the original was!

OK! Down to business! The first game is a 'tad whack!' As Santa, flying across the mid-winter skies, you drop presents down chimneys, which decrease in stature every time you have a successful hit! The same game is a repeat of others, I'm too tired to post a link, but I'm sure it was one of the mini-games on the Japanese Saturn release of Segata Sanshiro (The Game!).

The second, however, is a classic! Holding the DS in book style, (as in Brain Training) you have to navigate Santa's 21st Century Skidoo (Snow-mobile type thing) as he delivers his pressies around the world!

This is a great game! It's fun and challenging... And as the whole package comes from those lovely peeps at Paradise Games, I suggest you do your duty and support it. I bought mine for a mere fiver (£5). Admittedly, I secured mine by registered post, which meant that the grumpy, 'by the book postman' wouldn't let my ten year old son sign for it, which in turn, meant me have to stand in line at the post office (massively hung over) for 3/4 of an hour to secure it on a Saturday morning, but that did not detract from it's gorgeous gameplay!

A definite 'keeper' flagged up by the gorgeous Gnome, this little homebrew treasure comes as a GBA cartridge (sumptuously compatible with your DS)... No downloading nonsense needed...

A festive treat for anyone... For more info click on the Paradise Games link above or -simply- here...
This is FK, a tad worse for wear, signing off for GGOTG...

Create a NES ringtone for your poor ol' phone

Never really understood why people care about ringtones or why they think they get to express themselves via the noises produced by their phones, but quite obviously I digress. Anyway. If you are a NES loving retro gamer with a bit of time in your hands and care for ringtones, well, have a look and see how to easily make your for yourself.

Legend Of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)

FINALLY! I've engaged with a Zelda title that I like! For those of you in the know, I've just completed the level on Ember Island, the volcano has been extinguished, I've got the power of the wind (actually, I've ALWAYS had powerful wind, ask anyone in the Krishna household...) and Astrid The Fortune Teller has bestowed on me the secret of the Temple Of The Ocean King...

But if all that sounds like gobbledy-gook to you, I sympathise! I've never been able to get down with Link (and it's not for want of trying...) I've got 'A Link To The Past' for GBA, 'Ocarina Of Time' downloaded on my Wii, I've borrowed 'Twilight Princess' and I've recently purchased 'Link's Crossbow Training' bundled with the Wii Zapper- which is admittedly ace, but not a true Zelda title...

Phantom Hourglass is the follow up to the 'child Link' cell shaded nautical odyssey 'The Wind Waker' which first appeared on the Gamecube a few years back. It's movement and combat systems are all controlled with the stylus, the D-Pad being relegated to selecting the map and items (which can be purchased with those funky little rupees that are accumulated by 'hack and slash' gardening of the liberally scattered vegetation in Link's immediate environment).

A forgiving save system and the sort of gameplay that allows you to put in half an hour here or there, make this a perfect handheld gaming experience for me. Good storyline, likeable and engaging characters and an excellent musical score, coupled with endearing visuals, make this one a winner, and something I'd recommend for purchase.
Enjoy the screenshots and video, and check out the 'Links' below... (That's about the third time I've used that pun and it's wearing thin.... Even on me! LOL! ;)

Arkanoid DS preview video

I've been waiting for this highly portable, oddly accurate and paddle-sporting version of Arkanoid ever since I first blogged the thing and now that Play Asia have tons of Arkanoid DS bundles ready to ship, I thought I'd look a bit more into the game. That's what the video above (courtesy of TheGameRoomBlitz) is all about. Promising...

The brand new yet highly collectible GBA Christmas Double Pack

Everyone is sick of Christmas and the bloody thing hasn't even started yet. Anyway, just to help ease the pain of the unavoidable Xmas kitsch attack, here's a little something for your aging Game Boy Advance (and of course your DS): The RGCD/Paradise Christmas Double Pack. It's a brand new indie GBA cartridge sporting two seasonally themed mostly high-score based games, a hidden mini game, tons of smart gameplay and nice (at times impressive) 16-bit styled graphics.

Only 50 cartridges have been released and each one costs a puny £5.50, so I guess you'd better hurry. Grab them here or here and help support them retro loving homebrew developers and/or the pretty excellent yet very freeware retro gaming RGCD mag.

Loco Roco doing the Santa Balls demo thing

Just a short post really, only to let you know that the pretty seasonal, innuendo-laden demo of the Christmas Edition of Loco Roco will be available for free download on 12/13/07 over at the game's Japanese official site. For the PSP only of course. Oh, and do check my ultra secret source.

Guitar Hero Mobile: The Trailer

Admittedly, it does look nice and shiny, promising even, but what's the point of playing Guitar Hero when you don't actually wield a plastic toy guitar? Then again, I guess it could be worse. It could be raining, or you could have the option to plug a guitar into your phone. Well, anyway. Find out more on Guitar Hero Mobile over at its official site.

DOOM (not the RPG) for free on your phone

Pretty straightforward really, as all you need to do is follow this link, download the 2MB archive and enjoy some truly classic FPS action on the go. To fully appreciate this impressive port of the original DOOM game though, a powerful phone with a QWERTY keyboard and landscape screen orientation would definitely come in handy.

Contra 4 DS Review (of the meta sort)

It's been ages since Contra 3 and more importantly aeons since a new properly 2D Contra side-scrolling shooter graced the gaming world, but apparently the wait is now over. Contra 4 for the Nintendo DS is here and ...err... here's its official site. Hurray! Heh.

Anyway, the game seems rather gorgeous in its pixel art way, fun, solid and tough enough to remind you of your Contra/Probotector youth and even features them previous classic Contra -yes, including Super Contra- games as unlockables, along with tons of well presented Contra info. Sounds lovely, doesn't it? Well, so seem to think the guys and gals over at Gametrailers. Watch their video review and keep in mind just how rare such retro friendly offerings are:

Not convinced yet? Looking for more reasons to follow your instincts and go rob an old lady of her Contra 4? Well, here are lots of reasons, as there is where the metacritic page of the game lies and it already has managed (the game, not page, that is) a rather impressive 84/100. As for the reviews themselves, well, here are some major ones: (90): After a decade-plus of 3D missteps, Konami finally delivers a Contra title worthy of succeeding the SNES classic, The Alien Wars. One part homage and one part evolution, Contra 4 is two screens of delicious torture. (7.5): While Contra 4 doesn't necessarily improve on the respected series template, it's unquestionably a return to form, likely to sate rabid fans while simultaneously terrorizing unprepared newbies.

IGN (8.0): A cool historical throwback to the days of skill over style. Lots of fun extras including the first two NES games unlockable. [...] Absolutely, positively one of the hardest games you'll play on the DS...the difficulty curve starts at 10 and never dips.

Game Informer (9.25): The fact that this game is called Contra 4 accurately indicates WayForward’s intention to ignore every Contra title that’s come out since 1992 and focus solely on perfecting the NES and SNES era cocktail.

NintnendoWorldReport (9.0): Konami has decided to celebrate Contra's twentieth anniversary by making the best Contra yet.

Weeeeel, we are kinda sorta slightly excited about this highly handheld Mega Drive thingy....

Ok, everybody knows UK Resistance are a) hilarious and b) right, and I guess everyone should know they are not excited about yet another Sega retro handheld, but one could admit that a SEGA Mega Drive portable emulator isn't that horrible a prospect. I mean, look at it. It's even got all the proper buttons. And its by Tectoy too. And a Mega Drive (for our American reader) is quite a bit like a Genesis, you know...

Anyway, should you be pathetic enough to be like me and consequently care about such an abomination, you'd better click here. Mind you, it comes with 20 pretty classic MD games: Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Alien Storm, Altered Beast, Arrow Flash, Columns III, Crack Down, Decap Attack, Dr. Robotnik´s Mean Bean Machine, Ecco, Ecco Jr., E-SWAT: Cyber Police City Under Siege, Flick, Gain Ground, Golden Axe, Jewel Master, Kid Chameleon, Ristar, Sonic and Knuckles, Shadow Dancer, The Secret of Shinobi, The Revenge of Shinobi.

Resident Evil: The Missions

Well it had to happen sooner or later. It seems the T Virus has now infected mobile phones, as Capcom's classic comes to casual gamers. I'm sorry the above video is a little blurry and I'm even sorrier about the cheesy music that accompanies said video. But it does prove that Resident Evil is now available to download to your handset, which is what I'm doing as I type this post.

I've not played it yet, but it looks great. You can even play as the lovely Jill valentine! Wanna know more? those rather helpful types at Gamespot should be able to sort that out for you. In the mean time heres a few screenshots for you all!

Adventure Maker let's you create classic adventures for your PSP, iPhone, iPod or PC

Ok, truth is PC users won't really care, what with AGS and tons of other -better- adventure creation programs, but the rest of you should really be excited, for Adventure Maker is an easy to use, powerful and impressively complete set of applications, that will help you create Sierra/Lucasarts or even Myst like point-and-clickers (interesting multimedia presentations are another option) for the PSP, iPhone and iPod Touch crowd. AM, besides being mostly freeware, comes complete with a graphics program, music maker and absolutely anything you might need.

Truth is, the free edition doesn't allow you to go pro, yet I'm pretty sure it will help with advancing the portable homebrew adventures cause. So, uhh, grab Adventure Maker here, look at its features there or, better yet, enjoy some quality freeware games.

The Nintendo DSVision Media Player

Well, truth be said, you should be able to satisfy your appetite for DS books, comics, movies and homebrew media players of all sorts right from the gutter, but getting an official Nintendo seal of approval option can't be a bad thing either. And that's exactly where DSVision fits in.

It will be an interesting peripheral/service combination, meaning you'll be getting both a proper DS cartridge that'll will even allow the use of microSD cards and a nice online download service. According to the DSVision will be able to handle images, books, comics, magazines, videos and music, and will hit Japan sometime during March 2008. For further info and tons of pictures follow the link.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX excavation

Game Development Archeology it is then and, one of the few places in cyberspace solemnly devoted to assembly coding, has gone digging all over the Game Boy Color Zelda game and its source code. Amazingly, them bright kids discovered quite a few interesting bits regarding the game's history hidden in its ROM image and proved that fiddling with raw dumps can be -at least- as interesting and rewarding as actually playing Link's Awakening.

Now, time to actually read the article here and see what Qbasic, the monochrome Game Boy Zelda, C and Z80 assembly had to offer your first colour Link experience on the go.

Assuming you cant be bothered with emulating the NES (or even SNES) on your DS for free and that you sort of fancy big clunky peripherals with a retro look, then Famireeta Lite is probably what you are looking for. It's a lovely NES adapter complete with TV-out capabilities and speakers, and was discovered by these fantastic guys.

Runaway DS trailer-y video

I can't really see why Lucasarts don't bother porting their classic adventures to the Nintendo DS (heck, half the job's been done for them by the ScummVM team), especially when everybody else is trying to flood the market with their own not-that-stellar point-and-clickers.

Take Runaway DS for example. It was widely known as Runaway 2 on the PC and was a decent, great looking yet not particularly funny adventure on the PC, that has just managed to squeeze itself on a tiny cartridge. See the video above? It's all the proof you should need such ideas work and a promise for a brilliant interface.

Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within Screenshots

Wellit's been a while since I've had a game on my mobile that I thought worthy of a post... If memory serves me well it was Digital Chocolate's "Yakuza". But P.O.P:W.W. ticks all the right boxes. A side scrolling beat 'em up with a good combat system, carefully placed prompts (in terms of which key's to press), a really nice flow and nice graphics, this game is a must have! It actually becomes quite compulsive after a while and easily matches anything the Gameboy Colour has to offer. And that ain't bad for something on your phone is it? Enjoy the screenshots and if you want to see some video look here!

The official blurb goes something like this...

"The Prince is back! Embark on a pirate ship to defy your fate and destroy the Sands of Time. Release the warrior within!

*The highly anticipated sequel to the 2 mobile phone blockbusters, Prince of Persia®: Harem Adventures and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time™.

*A stronger, more impressive Prince, with acrobatic movement and the ability to stop time.

*An explosive mixture of intense, choreographic fighting and traps set to outsmart you accompanied by a captivating storyline!

*10 levels of incredibly realistic and mysterious environments.
Extended gameplay and even more combat, thanks to the Arena mode!"

The Moon Book Project (DS)

The quality of the Nintendo DS homebrew scene is simply astonishing. Shocking even. Take The Moon Book Project for example. It offers classic entertainment that's both free and NDS friendly and it very obviously is part of the whole homebrew scene. Yes. Right. Well, better quote: The Moon Books Project is dedicated to bringing classic literature, films and other content freely to users of the Nintendo DS game console.

Visit the project's site here, learn how to use the media on your DS and download away. After all, who wouldn't want to read the archived works of H.G. Wells interrupted only by small sessions of Night of the Living Dead and Merry Melodies cartoons? Oh, and guttertalk would definitely appreciate them Heroes comics...

BooksInMyPhone: Free ebooks on the go

Everyone has a mobile, cell, whatever it wants to call itself phone, though not everyone reads enough to be rightfully considered enlightened and that's where BooksInMyPhone, a fantastic site discovered by gHacks, brilliantly attempts to help mankind. All you'll need is a phone and a way to transfer data to it (think standard USB cable) and you'll be able to enjoy hundreds of classics on the go. Uhm, in ebook format and on your phone's probably tiny screen, that is, but for absolutely free.

Now, if I may, let me suggest some available and frankly timeless titles to start you off... Les Miserables by Hugo, Metamorphosis by Kafka, The Communist Manifesto by Marx & Engels, Gulliver's Travels by Swift and Dracula by Stoker. Enjoy, I know I will.

Let's even overreact and suppose you simply don't care about Warhammer 40,000 Squad Commander at all. Well, you still got to download the free demo THQ has been decent enough to provide us with, just to help companies understand how popular them demos are.

Download the 6.3 MB archive either from THQ, GameSpot, Filefront or PSP fanboy. All you'll need to run it will be your very own vanilla PSP and a USB cable. Oh, and here's the game's official website.

Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron PSP video review

Truth is that Funnyman definitely knows his stuff, is quite the Sony connoisseur and he's pretty adamant in his belief that the latest Star Wars Battlefront offering for the PSP is on the shite side of gaming. Then again, the game has managed to get its fair share of good reviews, usually comes complete with a shiny new PSP Slim and even got itself a pretty positive GameTrailers video review too (the one embedded in this post apparently).

As for me, well, I haven't played the thing and don't believe I'll be doing so in the foreseeable future, but I kinda like what I see. The game is in essence a stripped down, not very nice looking version of the highly enjoyable Star Wars Battlefront II and this just can't be a bad thing. Even if nothing can compare to the mouse-keyboard combo... Besides, it's one of the few online multiplayer focused PSP shooters.

The new roughly GBA SP shaped console comes with a 2,8" TFT display, built-in camera, microphone, FM radio, flash/SD/MMC support, video in/out capabilities, a variety of apps (calendar, calculator, mp3 player etc), e-book reader and a multi-format video player.

Free Duck Hunt (!) game for the PSP

Gotta love the homebrew scene and their brave disregard for intellectual property and corporate policies. Also gotta grab this version of Nintendo's NES classic Duck Hunt for the Sony PSP by clicking here. It obviously is a freeware download and is developed by French-based developer jojodu0010.
Developer jojodu0010's duck-hunt v0.1 has a little twist, mind you, concerning the game's score system. Unlike other creations, you're not supposed to shoot every single duck flying across your PSP's screen. Ducks with different colors yield the different scores. The black ones are not supposed to be shot because killing them will result in -10 points.
