Indie Retro News celebrates over 6 years of gaming news!

It's incredible to think that this year will be another year under our belt and our anniversary of over 6 years since our gaming creation in the late part of 2011! Over many years of posting the latest gaming news on certain forums, (originally just quotes) I had a dream to create my own gaming website, one that would suit both fans of the Indie scene and the Retro scene and would reach out to as many people as possible, which includes those of you in the Amiga, Amstrad, C64, ZX Spectrum, Sega Master System, NES and even the BBC Micro scene. Thus in late 2011 Indie Retro News was born and over time has seen a huge surge in views with the end result of being a part of the top 5 retro gaming blog, the top 10 retro gaming blog, and the top popular blogs to Follow!

Huntdown - Co-op arcade shooter in development for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch!

I had to opportunity to try a demo of the side-scrolling shoot em up game Huntdown and I instantly fell in love with this game! Huntdown is a retro style shoot em up that takes place in a post-apocalyptic Cyberpunk setting with support for 2-players. Huntdown draws inspiration from old arcade shooters like Contra and Metal Slug but the developers added more tactical elements like taking cover behind walls and alleys and jumping up and down from platforms just like in the Rolling Thunder games. There are a lot of different weapons to pick up and they all feel very different. Weapons like shotguns and hand cannons pushes the enemies away on impact and makes them fly through the stage and it just feels great! And other small details like kicking in doors and enemies, sliding on the floor and that you can revive your friend with a defibrillator made the game even more fun!

Here on Indie Retro News we do like games that break the tediousness of similarities and try something different, so we think Hyperspace Delivery Service by Mikepinto81 does just that. In this game you are hired by the Hyperspace Delivery Service to make a delivery to planet Miridian V, but along the way there will be dangers such as mad robots, space pirates and even the odd unpredictable stellar phenomenon.

But now another game has caught our eye, and this one is called ' AGGELOS '; a charming  action-RPG inspired by the likes of Wonder Boy that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 16-bit era!

Grelox - Action platformer with a retro vibe heading to your PC

With our article of Alex Kidd in Miracle World remake going crazy numbers with everyone talking about it on the internet, we thought we'd give a shout to another fine game that's currently being developed, and this one is an action platformer with a very retro feel titled as Grelox. Now originally I thought the game had more of an MS-DOS feel, but according to Sunteam, this game will be coming to the PC and will be using a non limited Master System palette to give it that authentic feel, as well as the hope of using SMS style music when the game is complete.

Well we are pleased to tell you that not only was Sydney Hunter and the Sacred Tribe made available a little while ago for both the ColecoVision and the Intellivision, but this rather neat platformer was since made available for the C64!

Alex Kidd in Miracle World remake is coming!

In 1987 Sega released the great side-scrolling platform game ' Alex Kidd ' for the Sega Master System console.
