The Next Space is the most recent retro arcade classic from SNK and G1M2. I have to wonder if the working title of this game was “The Next Space Shooter,” and when the game was finally finished, they couldn’t figure out anything more appropriate, so they went with it. Only to realize it was too [...]

I remember back in the early days of Minis, when there were only a handful of shooters. Now there are dozens, most of which have come to us as retro arcade classics from SNK and turned into Mini form by G1M2. Chopper I was in the arcades in the late ’80s and is a vertical [...]

I’ve often thought about what I would do with a time machine. Change past events, like preventing Night of the Living Dead from going out of copyright and thus hopefully averting the zombie craze, or keeping the Cubs from winning any World Series at all. Meet long dead people like Chopin, Plato, and Grandpa Munster. [...]

Although Jackie Chan starred in the blockbuster ensemble comedy The Cannonball Run, it wasn’t until the mid ’90s and Rumble in the Bronx that he became a household name in the U.S. Yet what if he had been a big star in the U.S. in the ’80s? He might very well have been teamed up [...]

Gang Wars and Time Soldiers aren’t the only new SNK Minis on the way. According to the European rating board, Chopper I and The Next Space are due to be released, presumably in the near future.
Both are vertically scrolling shoot ‘em-ups from the late ’80s. Chopper I seems to be a terrestrially based shooter, like [...]

Forum member Nexus Prime spotted a post over at PSN Stores which has next week’s PSN releases. Along with Wizorb and the NA release of I Kill Zombies, there are two more classic SNK arcade games, Time Soldiers and Gang Wars. These games weren’t developed by SNK, only published, but SNK later bought out the [...]
