Logic Fails: Review of “Operation Logic Bomb”

October 12, 2009
Logic Bomb? My god..

Logic Bomb? My god..

I’m a little fence with some shooter games. Some of them are quite boring and you can easily cruise through probably a quarter of the game without noticing, or you can spend that same time cursing every single imaginable deity as you use your 20th continue(I’m looking at you, Contra 3!). This is not entirely the case with Operation Logic Bomb as it mixes both loads of action and an incredibly limited Continue system. Just to give you a heads up, you get three continues. Three.

This is Scary How?: Review of “Ghoul Patrol”

It rhymes! That's scary enough, right?

It rhymes! That's scary enough, right?

Well, you get Ghoul Patrol for the Super NES! Ghoul Patrol could be considered the illegitimate child of the first game, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, and also the result of Executive Meddling as it was considered to be a totally unrelated game to ZAMN, which ultimately made it bombed commercially and no sequels were further considered.

Metal_Slug_Advance

Metal Slug Advance is a run and gun game for the GBA that was created by SNK Playmore and canon to the Metal Slug Series. If you’re familiar with this game, then it’s clear to say those summer days in the laundromat were wasted, along with a pocketful of quarters, to this game.
