Earthworm Jim Review – The 90’s were a weird time.

Erthworm Jim Sega Genesis review

Fall of the Foot Clan. The First Gameboy Review

fall of the foot clan

Fall of the Foot Clan?!?! Lets talk about the Gameboy for a second. It was something that was quite innovative for its time. Yes it had its flaws with the multiple shades of gray on a green screen that didn’t light up, but this was something from the 80s that let you take versions of …
