LGR – Super Solvers Spellbound! – DOS PC Game Review

[typing] You ever think back to games you played as a kid and wonder “why the crap did I play that so much?” Super Solvers Spellbound! is one of those games for me, and I don’t wonder that because it’s a bad game or anything, because it’s certainly not. I wonder that because… well, it’s […]

LGR – Dem Bonz – DOS PC Game Review

Greetings! And welcome to LGR Quickies: Reinvigorated. And, yes, this is a series that I attempted to do several years ago. And you may or may not remember it.

LGR – Isle of the Dead – DOS PC Game Review

[MIDI version of “Donut World Theme” from Super Mario World plays] [typing] Frigging Mario. What CAN’T he accomplish? Dude’s a plumber, race driver, doctor, tennis player, Goomba murder, arsonist, pole dancer.

LGR – Jingle Disk for DOS Review

[grunt] [music: synth “Silent Night”] [fizz] [sipping] Ahhh… [typing] [music fades out] Greetings. As in greeting cards.

LGR – Iron Blood – DOS PC Game Review

[typing] Why had I never heard of this until recently? This is “Iron Blood,” published in 1996 by Microforum and developed by Family Production, Inc. Hmm. Maybe that’s why I hadn’t heard of it.

LGR – Cross Country Canada – DOS PC Game Review

[typing] If your typical weekend looks like this, then you also probably consider the game Cross Country Canada to be a point of national pride. I’ve heard many describe this as the Canadian school kid’s equivalent to The Oregon Trail, and on the surface, the comparison makes sense. However, I’m sorry to burst your syrupy […]
