Retro Gaming December 2023 (0 Comments) (link)
 Saturday, 2-December-2023  22:09:20 (GMT +10) - by MUTMAN

This month's "Retro Let's Play" for December is the Commander Keen series from 1991. Continuing the theme from last month, it is another classic 90s shareware title that triggers lots of nostalgic feelings and its creation is quite an interesting story. It's a side-scrolling platformer with some nice elements such as the pogo stick mechanism. Episode 4 is the quintessential Commander Keen. Like last month's Jill of the Jungle, it seems to play much better on a gamepad (the pogo stick mechanism in particular).

Meanwhile this month's "Retro Racing" game is Dirt Dash from 1995. Essentially, Dirt Dash is to Sega Rally what Tekken is to Virtua Fighter, and with its attractive use of the Super System 22 board, light-sourcing and backgrounds, plus the excellent feel of the cars themselves, Namco had another hit on its hands. Think of it like Ridge Racer goes Off-Road.
