#708 – Wall Street Kid

                            This is a fun cover. It’d be great if the “Top Secret” briefcase had green bills coming out the sides.                                                                                               That’s odd… I don’t remember any giant cockroaches in 1990.   PLAYERS: 1 PUBLISHER: Sofel DEVELOPER: Sofel GENRE: Simulation RELEASE DATE: June 1990   Before 1990, only elite stock … Continue reading #708 – Wall Street Kid

#346 – KlashBall

                Despite what this cover shows, you don’t actually play outdoors, surrounded by adoring fans.                                                                               KlashBall looks confusing, but it’s really just gussied-up soccer.   PLAYERS: 1-2 PUBLISHER: Sofel DEVELOPER: Sofel GENRE: Sports RELEASE DATE: July 1991   If KlashBall is the sport of the future, then it really needs to … Continue reading #346 – KlashBall

It sounds like a cheap … Continue reading #196 – Dragon Fighter

#117 – Casino Kid II

                                               I’m not sure who the “kid” is supposed to be in this picture. Certainly not Alan Thicke on the right.                                                                                              Paul Kieton stars as Sir Alfred Hitler.   PLAYERS: 1 PUBLISHER: Sofel DEVELOPER: Sofel GENRE: Gambling RELEASE DATE: April 1993   After all of my ranting about how Casino … Continue reading #117 – Casino Kid II

#116 – Casino Kid

                                                                                    This cover is brought to you by the ’80s.                                                           If Lisa asks if you want insurance, it’s because she’s about to cheat.   PLAYERS: 1 PUBLISHER: Sofel DEVELOPER: Sofel GENRE: Gambling RELEASE DATE: October 1989   Any game that teaches gambling to children has to be a good thing, right? … Continue reading #116 – Casino Kid
