                                                                                                                                        This time, as opposed to last time?                                                                                 You haven’t lived until you’ve destroyed the creatures of the sea.   PLAYERS: 1 PUBLISHER: LJN DEVELOPER: Westone Bit Entertainment GENRE: Action RELEASE DATE: November 1987   Jaws is not the only video game based on the “Jaws” book and movie series (hello … Continue reading #315 – Jaws

#309 – Isolated Warrior

  Pink was really the warrior’s choice back then.
