Reviews

Color Phonics – PC

“The Best Phonics Curriculum on the Market!”
“This has worked wonderfully…the content of Color Phonics is marvelous, and is helping my speech delayed 4.5yo to distinguish the different sounds.
“I have looked at other phonics programs that cost more and prefer this to the Phonics Game, Fast-track Phonics, etc.”

Slime World – Lynx

The First Eight-PLayer Video Game Ever Created!
“One of the most entertaining games designed by Epyx for the Lynx, ‘Slime World’ sets you in a gooey, drippily disgusting planet laid out as a series of explorable cave-mazes. Armed with a water pistol and a variety of non-lethal tools, you lead Todd from entrance to exit in search of colorful slime gems.”
* Gameplay: Offers variations on the same theme including exploration, arcade, timed and logic. Even has deathmatch when connected to multiple Lynx.
* Graphics: Amazing detail, colorful palette and original effects (you can pop like a zit!).
* Sound: Incredibly, the synthesized music is created on the fly!
* Value: Large maps make for hours of exploration. Would have benefited from a random map function.
* Tilt: I play it still, on a desktop emulator.
Metron4
“This title perfectly captures both the charm of Epyx and the spark that made Lynx great. Here is a clever, imaginative game that literally oozes with curiosity and invention.”
Daniel Thomas

Maggots – iPhone / iPod Touch

Fun fun fun!! (5 stars) “This app is totally fun! You can take away any craving for food too!! Flick em, squish em, I like to hold em and hear them scream!! A riot!
Gross (5 stars) “I love this app, good job. I give it 5 stars. Make more apps like this please.”

Scripture Solitaire – PC

“All these elements make this much more than a regular solitaire game, but a rich and customizable experience that can help teach as well as entertain.” – “I’d just as soon use a fun tool like “SS” to do my study as anything else I’ve come across yet!”
Rick Casteel

Godspeed 3D – PC

“Exceptional”
Tim Emmerich

California Games – 2600

“California Games is impressive” – “The cart kicks off with a flashy title screen” – “The graphics are some of the best ever for the 2600. Objects and backgrounds are multi-colored, finely detailed, and rendered in high resolution. I was especially impressed by the waves in the surfing event.” – “Who would have thought they could have pulled this off on the 2600?”
The Video Game Critic
“California Games, like Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES and Super Mario RPG for the SNES, pushes the capabilities of its hardware into previously unimaginable territory, proving a console is only as good as its best programmers.” – “Each of these events — foot bag, half-pipe, BMX racing and surfing — could have been an entire game in their own right, but California Games packages them together in a tournament-style competition for up to eight(!) players.”
Skyler Miller, All Game Guide

Winter Games – 2600

“I showed this game to a friend recently, and he gasped ‘THIS is the ATARI 2600??’ It looks that good! The graphics are smooth and colorful, and the characters are detailed and nicely animated.”
The Video Game Critic
