King of Fighters WiZ

King of Fighters WiZOr, to use its complete title, King of Fighters: Flames of Courage v.5 has been made available on the WiZ and can be grabbed (for free) here. Besides reinforcing the current trend for more and better Wiz releases, the game seems like a great fighter sporting many characters and more than many combos. Not my cup of tea exactly, but I really can't complain...

GBA Game Boy fusion

Game Boy GBA modNot all mods are great, but what you see above is brilliant both as an idea and from an aesthetic point of view. After all, it most obviously is a Game Boy Advance SP occupying the now bulky case of Nintendo's original Game Boy. It is thus the best and most retro friendly way to enjoy Gameboy, Gameboy Color and GBA games on the go and -importantly- on a shiny back-lit screen. Excellent! Find out more.

Amiga 500 on the iPhone

Just a video of a tech demo really, but it's most impressive. Apparently all the iPhone now lacks is a proper and properly bulky joystick.

Galcon Fusion on the iPad

Galcon Fusion, the brilliantly elegant RTS indie game I recently reviewed here, has just gotten itself the trailer you see above. The brand new trailer for its iPad version, and it seems pretty great. Exactly the type of game touch-screens have been designed for. Apparently, you can buy Galcon Fusion here.

Amiga emulation on the Wiz

We all know that the Wiz is a rather amazing little console and we all know it's excellent for emulating retro gaming machines. What's more, all those that have read my Wiz review should also know that it manages to effortlessly emulate the pretty tricky Commodore Amiga and provide some excellent 16-bit classic gaming on the go. The emulator for the job is of course none other than the Wiz optimized version of UAE; the aptly named UAE4ALL, which you can grab here. For free.

UAE4ALL is a pretty strong emulator that manages to play the huge majority of Amiga games I tried, supports multiple drives, emulates a mouse and joystick and even offers the option of a rather handy virtual keyboard. It is also quite simple to use, though this pretty amazing starter guide should help anyone get it running (perfectly) in no time. What's more you can check a pretty extensive compatibility list and find out that, yes, you can easily play both Agony and Sensible Soccer on your little handheld.

Oh, and to help you get started with your Amiga gaming, let me point out that you can easily download some free games from the Hall of Light, Llamasoft, Factor 5 and Cinemaware. You can even take an Elite space tour.

The DSiWare video you all wanted

Coming after 1 whole year of Nintendo's gaming service has been enjoyed (and paid for in that nasty point currency), the above video should be of interest both to new DSi gamers who can see what some of the best DSi offerings are, and to everyone else who'd like to find out what's next for their handheld. The answer is quite a lot of promising stuff apparently. Just ignore Frogger Returns (already looks appalling), and have a look at Earthworm Jim, Metal Torrent and the incredibly silly looking Photo Dojo.
