DoctorSpuds Reviews Things > Mega Force (20th Century Fox)

Posted 18 April 2019

What time is it? You guessed it its crappy movie tie-in time, and what disappointing movie-based game are we going to be looking at today? Krull? No… Ghostbusters? Nah! Philly Flasher?.. Hell no! Ah! Of course there can be no other than Mega Force! Who remembers Mega Force? ‘cause I don’t, this movie was a total flop at the box office ba...


DoctorSpuds Reviews Things > Sorcerer's Apprentice (Atari)

This version of the game was never released even though it seems Wizard Video already had packaging planned and produced before scrapping the game to release the one programmed by Ed Salvo. The guy who programmed this version, Rob...


DoctorSpuds Reviews Things > The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Wizard Video)

Posted 11 April 2019

Of all the licensed games that have been released I would put Texas Chainsaw Massacre at the top of the ‘least likely to appeal to anyone’ list. The Atari 2600 wasn’t really known to have much success with ‘adult’ oriented games, as we all know it appealed more to kids and teens with the huge amount of arcade conversions, and...
