A Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year from Indie Retro News


Here we are again with another Christmas and what a year it has been, full of incredible indie games, new homebrews, and lots of retro specials that have amazed even our own writers! From C64 games such as Aviator Arcade II, Portal, L'Abbaye des Morts 64, Caren Thank You Edition 2018, Organism, Limbo, Sizzler, and even Rocky Memphis The Legend Of Atlantis. To Amiga games such as Tiger Claw, GOLDEN WING, The Kiwi's Tale, Rygar AGA and even Barbarian Plus, each one brilliant in their own way.


But let's not forget the Amstrad either, as 2018 for this system has been incredible. We were blown away with the CPCRetroDev competition playing games like Operation Alexandra, Jarlac, Legend of Steel, The Adventures of Timothy Gunn and even Galactic Tomb. Which really showed us just how incredible the Amstrad is especially when games are developed for the system to their full potential! - No ZX Spectrum ports here :)


On the topic of the ZX Spectrum, the community was certainly no slouch for this system either. In actual fact the ZX Spectrum saw many incredible games announced through 2018, especially with games like The Beast Of Torrack Moor, Power Blade, Foggy's Quest 2 The Lost Treasure of OMK, Rogue, Old Tower, Popeye Arcade 2018 and of course my personal favourite Gandalf Deluxe.


And now putting the core retro games aside including the ROMS we've been shouting about every month, but we also have to give thanks to the indie game community. Sometimes it isn't all about loading up an emulator, but we like to load up Steam or other such gaming library and have a quick blast on the PC that doesn't have anything to do with the tediousness of Battlefield V. Games such as From Beyond - Prologue, Battle Princess Madelyn, Aeon, Project Warlock, Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom and even Unavowed to name but some of the ones we've enjoyed in 2018!


Sufficed to say I could on and on about every game we've ever posted about this year, the games AlanG, Florinthedwarf, Steve Trower, Hayesmaker The Games Helmet or Scotty has reviewed, and those that are to come in 2019. But apart from some of the games yet to be complete this year, 2018 is going to be a really hard year to beat. So I'll end this by saying I hope you have enjoyed everything Indie Retro News has done this year and not only thanks to Amiga Bill, Per Ola and Saberman for giving us a hearty mention, but a massive thanks to everyone that has sent us news, commented to our articles or have returned to the site again and again for the very best in retro gaming updates.
