“Donkey Kong” Remastered for the GB in ’94

One of my favorite games on the original Game Boy console was the remake/reimagining of Donkey Kong (sometimes referred to as Donkey Kong ’94) that was put out in 1994. The game, though, is a huge enhancement to the classic formula, taking Mario on a journey across several themed areas and 101 total

“Bram Stoker’s Dracula” – a Sub-Par ‘Castlevania Clone’

As a kid, I remember getting this game on the Super Nintendo and thinking that it would be really fun. I loved the Castlevania series of games, so pretty much anything with Dracula in the title was appealing to me. On a basic level, I felt the game was decent and had
