TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Space Dungeon’ is an arcade shoot ’em up done right on the Atari 5200

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Space Dungeon’ is an arcade shoot ’em up done right on the Atari 5200

I’m not one to simply take the words of other critics to heart. If I’m told, in this case, that a game is the “best game on the Atari 5200,” I’m not going to accept that as truth and be done with it, oh no. I owe it to you, loyal readers, to discover whether […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Worse than ‘E.T.,’ ‘Pac-Man’ is a hard pill to swallow on Atari 2600

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Worse than ‘E.T.,’ ‘Pac-Man’ is a hard pill to swallow on Atari 2600

Touching upon it last week, today I am reviewing what I feel is the worst game on the Atari 2600 and is, if only in my opinion, more responsible for the video game market crash of 1983 than “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” which gets the bad rap reserved for today’s subject matter – “Pac-Man!” But “Pac-Man” […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: While ‘E.T.’ was an infamous flop, it isn’t the worst Atari game

This month will be quite an interesting one for Turn to Channel 3 as we take a look at some games that can be enjoyed (or not) on various Atari consoles. With the mysterious Ataribox marking the return of that brand to the video game business, I thought that now would be a great time […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Metal Slug: 1st Mission’ fits tank-sized fun into Neo Geo Pocket

So there’s something to be said for a guy who is already thinking ahead to August’s reviews before July is even over. Yours truly definitely had a bit of a brain fart prior to this review, so my apologies to that. My boss here puts up with my lunacy at times and mankind as a […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Dive into ‘Deep Duck Trouble’ for classic platforming with Donald Duck

Whether it is from a parent or just another shop customer who grew up with the games I did, I am often reminded of how complicated modern games are these days. In the same vein, I am often informed that modern games are too easy and thus are not as much fun. This may seem […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Alice in Wonderland’ isn’t so wonderful on the Game Boy Color

I really enjoy what I do because, whether it’s reviewing games for Turn to Channel 3 or running my business in Mayfield, there is always the opportunity to come across a game I have never seen or heard of in my life, and seeing something, even something 10, 15, or 20 years old for the […]
