Spelunker HD Co-op Review

Before there was Spelunky, there was a 1980s platformer called Spelunker. The ultra-challenging platformer saw players navigating deadly caves with little chance of survival. That game was remade and expanded as Spelunker HD on PlayStation 3, but it’s not exactly easy (or even possible) to play PS3 games on modern consoles. Hence, ININ and To...

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Co-Op Review

The first Puyo Puyo Tetris cleverly combined two classic falling block puzzle franchises, but it almost stayed in Japan. I wrote an import guide for the Japanese Xbox version! The first game did eventually make it to English markets on some platforms, but not poor Xbox. Thankfully, Sega has seen fit to release Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 in English on ...

Dariusburst: Another Chronicle EX+ Co-op Review

Taito’s Darius series has always stood out from other shoot ‘em ups thanks to its unique sea life-themed enemy ships and memorable Zuntata soundtracks. A few years back, Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours arrived on PlayStation and Steam, impressing fans with its 4-player co-op and ample gameplay modes. Now, the arcade follow-up Dariusburs...

Space Invaders Invincible Collection Co-op Review

In 1978, Taito’s Space Invaders took Japanese arcades by storm, becoming one of the highest-grossing arcade games of all time. The game would become a success in international markets as well, going on to spawn numerous revisions and sequels in the early days of arcades. More than 40 years later, Space Invaders still enjoys a loyal following ...

Spelunker HD Deluxe Brings the Challenge on PlayStation and Switch

Classic 8-bit platformer Spelunker was remade and given the co-op treatment as Spelunker HD back in the PlayStation 3 days. Because that version of Spelunker HD can't be played on today's consoles, another remake makes perfect sense. Thus, ININ and Tozai Games have just released Spelunker HD Deluxe on PlayStation 4/5 and Nintendo Switch. Wi...

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop Heading to Steam with a Level Editor

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, the latest game in Taito's classic co-op arcade platformer series, released on PlayStation and Switch a while back and later received extra levels with 'The Baron is Back' update. The next logical step for Taito and publisher ININ would seem to be the release of Xbox and PC versions. Sadly, Taito continues to avoid showing Xbox any love, but a Steam version is finally happening. It will be called Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop, and it will feature a brand-new level editor.

BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition Lands on Switch on August 6

One of the best ways to keep a game alive in people's hearts and minds is to release it on modern platforms. One such game, BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition from Frogmind and publisher Qubic Games, is already playable on pretty much every platform out there... except one. That changes on August 6 when BADLAND finally touches down on Nintendo Switch. At last, everyone will get to experience 4-player local co-op in a colorful land gone bad.

Adorable Action RPG 'Kitaria Fables' Will Feature Fighting, Farming, and Co-op

After publishing the feline co-op action RPG Cat Quest II, it's only natural that PQUBE would want to bring more action RPGs starring heroic kitties to the world. Perhaps that's the story of how PQUBE picked up Kitaria Fables from Indonesian developer Twin Hearts. Kitaria Fables takes place in a fantasy world populated by adorable animals, a world that console and PC players will get to experience at the beginning of September.
