Game Covers - Thunder Blade (Commodore 64)

Hold onto your stomachs, unscramble your brains and get ready to pilot the meanest fighting machine ever to storm the skies.  Fly through the wartorn skyline of Skyscraper City, plunge out to sea for an epic battle with the enemy, race on for a shoot out in rocky canyons and lush dense forests.  The action never ceases!

Mastertronic - What if? : Shenmue 1 and 2

I'm a sucker for old retro game covers and always wonder what new games would like if they came out, or were re-released in the 80s.

Mastertronic brings you "Shenmue 1 and 2" on cassette for £1.99, only for Commodore, Amstrad, Spectrum Atari, AND Playstation 4!!!!!  - Available from all good newsagents, chemists and game shops!

If only..... :o)

Because I have WAY too much time on my hands, I thought I'd mess around with putting together some fake Mastertronic covers for modern computer games in an attempt to give them the retro 1980's 8-bit cassette look.

Remember...  These are just for fun, and are obviously NOT real and NOT available, (although I'd love to see an 8-bit version with blocky graphics and cool chip-music).

In case you are not aware (or can not remember), Mastertronic were big in the mid to late 1980s and were a major budget software label in the United Kingdom and produced a large number of cheapo games and re-releases for the Commodore/Spectrum/Amstrad/Atari 8-bit computers (and some 16-bit too) - most at a pocket-money-friendly £1.99!

Anyway, remember this is just a bit of fun, but what would modern games look like if Mastertronic still released games like the good ol' days? Well, here you can find out!

As always, click the images to enlarge.

Retro Game Boys Episode 6 - Outrun (Arcade and Playstation 2)

Just me, Kieran, a Ferrari Testarossa, an open road, and some random bloke who keeps getting hit by his abusive girlfriend whenever he crashes.  Yep, it's Outrun.
