Saturday Morning RPG
I love Saturday Morning RPG. It’s so bad.
Remember the eighties?
Remember sitting in front of your TV on Saturday morning, soaking up the cartoon goodness?
How it was all ridiculously over-the-top and crazy, but somehow, at the end of every half an hour episode, everything worked out?
Well, if you remember those days fondly, you’ll find a lot to love in Saturday Morning RPG.
The trouble is, you’ll also find less fun things there, too.
Memory can be a fickle thing.
So, What Is Saturday Morning RPG?

I find it a shame and astonishing that a game as good as Saturday Morning RPG has not done better commercially. The game has some crazy achievements, such as fighitng 1,000 and even up to 5,000 battles, based on an initial idea of 20 episodes. Since it didn’t do well, they had to limit their ambitions to six episodes, hopefully with a fine tuning of the achievements in the future.
But why is all this necessary? The game has everyone a gamer would be looking for. A series of episodes with a simple story, with tons of nostalgic references for one thing. I mean the main character is a guy named Marty, who rides a hoverboard, and gets his powers from a mysterious man known as The Wizard. The retro graphics are a joy to behold, the music is killer, and the gameplay is a very solid Paper Mario/Super Mario RPG type of thing, with button presses for better defense and better attacks.
Paranormal Detective: Escape from the 80’s
Nice puzzle game. If you’ve played other escape room type games, you’ll like this. Lots of 80’s references and humor throughout. I had to refer to a walk through twice: once for something I should have picked up on but the other was something I may have eventually stumbled upon what they were expecting you to do (tip: just play with everything extensively!)
Looking forward to the 90’s sequel, which is already waiting in my wish list.

This game is totally RADICAL DUDE! Just played through and I loved it. Great escape room elements with so much 80s. Such cheesy acting and there is even a rap to dance to. Don’t want to give away too much. Took me about 2 hours to complete. I did search pretty thoroughly for Easter eggs and such.
The game nailed what is wrong with so many escape games.
It has a great, fun story! This is lacking in so many.
Everything is polished and works well! (surprisingly hard to find)
A great length! I have played waaaay too many 15 to 20 minute experiences. This took me well over an hour to explore, complete the puzzles, and complete the end.
Nirvana Pilot Yume
I love the concept for this game - visual novel + SkyRoads (which was an amazing DOS game where you piloted a little space car hopping along interstellar highways) is such a good, fresh idea. Nirvana Pilot Yume also throws in a great synthwave soundtrack as well as an artistic style that reminds me of 80s anime and vaporwave music videos. The visual novel aspect of the game is really well written, and the dialogue is enjoyable and the sex scenes natural and non-cringy.
The racing sections are a little rough at the moment - I think my biggest problem is that the tracks are REALLY hard, or at least the difficult bumps up dramatically after the first track, which is dirt easy. It’s quite hard to see what exactly is coming your way, because the vantage point is directly at the horizon whereas in SkyRoads, you had somewhat more of an overhead view, and thus more time to react and move your ship around obstacles. In Nirvana Pilot Yume, I feel like there’s almost no time to react at all because stuff is coming at you so fast, and the collision detection is VERY sensitive. The brake option also doesn’t seem to do much at the moment but pull the camera in closer, and currently when I try slowing down in all tracks after the first one, the speed meter at the top doesn’t change. (Not sure if this is a bug or not.)

I recently received this game for free as a curator connect offer for my group Visual novel, JRPG, Anime. First of all, this visual novel is an adult eroge visual novel with a few NSFW CGs. For those who don’t mind adult visual novels, read on.
This romance visual novel with arcade racing and platforming segments by Dev9k features a male protagonist Mitur Aldaine. Mitur graduated from an Academy and became the greatest racer of Alba Proxima and an Eye in a futuristic world where territorial contests between different orbital stations are decided by races among spaceships.
Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX
In 1991, my father came home with a box. Then I (6) have no idea what a game console is. I have some Tomy Handheld toys and I play with them all day. Caveman speeder space vs.
We installed it with my father and connected it to the TV. My father did not buy a game, of course, there is one game in the console. Yes, as you guessed, that game is Alex Kidd’s miracle world.
My mind was blown at the beginning of the game. I said what is this game?
It didn’t take long for me to get used to it, and I made my way through my mother’s cries of “it’s enough, sleep now”. I came to the first boss, of course, at that time I did not know that his name was boss. I call it punch man paper head or something.
I haven’t read the other reviews for this game, I received it as a gift from one of my brothers so I just jumped straight into it. The Master System is my favourite console, I still buy games for it to this day, so I am very familiar with the original. While fundamentally flawed, it is still one of the best retro platformers of it’s era.
Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is a remastered version of the game, complete with new a handful of new levels, brand new graphics and a number of changes to bring it into the modern age. The new levels are a welcome addition, very fitting into the rest of the game and adds a nice breath of fresh air to those already completely familiar with the original. I’m not personally sold on the new graphics, I think they look nice, but I will take the legacy/original look any day.

Game is broken as fuck achievements are constantly bugging even if you reinstall it dose not fix the problem and thats the only reason you would want this game..
as far as the snake game its extremely basic and poorly made only 3 different difficulty settings unlike 9 that it should have the controls are unresponsive and set to arrow keys cant use w,a,s,d and sometimes your just randomly die because you can do turns your not meant to what kills you ..example you can be going in the right direction and press the left and it can kill you . you cant full screen and is no options for the border so you have a constant wall on the outside .. this was a extremely easy game to copy and you fucked that up gj
A twist on the classic game Snake with a few extra options; “Slug” if you want the snake to move slower (although my attempts seemed to automatically kill the snake at a length of 108), “Worm” (classic snake game), or “Python” (probably 2x the speed of Worm option). Overall a fun way to kill time if you enjoyed the game snake when you were younger, but i would suggest waiting to purchase until the game goes on sale
Rate 6/10 - A fun game, however it does get boring after about a half hour of consecutive playing imo

Fear Protocol: Shadow Paradigm
The game isn’t particularly “good”, but you can beat it in 6 minutes while laughing about it in Discord & it’s free so play it anyways.
Do you enjoy
A soundtrack that almost never suits the atmosphere?
Hand to hand combat?
A thrilling story?
Highly inaccurate hitboxes?
Life or death decisions?
If you answered yes (and even no) to any of these questions, then this game is for you!
On a completely real note, I streamed this game from start to finish and had a blast almost the entire time. Is it a triple A title? Absolutely not. Is it a humorously entertaining hour or so? Absolutely.
