Retro Gaming January 2022 (0 Comments) (link)

It's the last day of the holidays for some.. including me. Not a bad break despite the doom and gloom. :)

Anyway, this month's "Retro Let's Play" is Ken's Labyrinth from 1993. By cover of night the Zogarians traveled to earth and picked up a representative of Earth's most intelligent beings. So, now they've got your dog Sparky. After thorough interrogation of Sparky, the Zogarians found out that dogs, in addition to being great companions, are the universe's most highly intelligent beings and have been conducting experiments on humans for years. While most of those experiments consisted of things like convincing humans to throw balls to them over and over again, the Zogarians nonetheless became fearful of canine intelligence. Instead of testing Sparky, who is obviously smart enough to escape their traps, they decided it would be safer for them to merely lock him up and get his human "master" for their experiments. Of course, that's you, isn't it?

Or maybe Retro Racing is your style - if so, check out Ironman Super Off Road from 1989. Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off Road is an arcade video game released in 1989 by Leland Corporation. The game was designed and managed by John Morgan who was also lead programmer, and endorsed by professional off-road racer Ivan Stewart. Virgin Games produced several home versions in 1990. In 1991, a home console version for the Nintendo Entertainment System was later released by Leland's Tradewest subsidiary, followed by versions for most major home formats including the Master System, Genesis, Super NES, Amiga, and MS-DOS. A port for the Atari Jaguar was announced but never released. Some of the ports removed Ivan Stewart's name from the title due to licensing issues and are known simply as Super Off Road.
