    This game was released in October of 1986. Two months earlier, in August, Metroid was made available in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. In September, and also for the Famicom Disk System, Akumajou Dracula – aka Castlevania – was, as well, released in Japan. So, unknowingly, The Sacred Armor of Antiriad gave birth to the metroidvania subgenre.
    Let's take a look!

    33 years ago there was this little thing that, in Europe, revolutionized the home computer business! People were accustomed to black and white graphics and the ZX Spectrum came to the rescue with its rainbow motif!
    Let’s take a quick look at its origins and point out my 26 favorite games on the system from this early model to the later ones!

    My favourite computer from the 80's. Some games I remember, some I've never heard of. I was surprised not to see Manic Miner or Jet Set Willy in your list.

    The Rambo movie franchise was always a nice subject for video game developers to adapt and bring that armored mayhem to consoles and computers, so, in this episode of the Pixel THING we’ll be taking a look at the titles based in this 80s action movie hero!

    20 years ago this revolutionary console took the world by storm. It was Sony’s revenge against Nintendo, but, the main victim ended up being Sega.

    In the 80s, and even early 90s, graphics weren’t, at all, the selling point of video game. Covers and adverts on magazines were!
    Let’s take a look at some examples on how to sell a computer game in the 80s and early 90s!
