Articles about Namco Museum

Rolling Thunder 2: Leila Takes the Lead - Rolling Thunder is a classic Namco title with good reason. Its slower pace, methodical gameplay and learnable patterns make it an obvious precursor to the stealth games of today. Its 1990 sequel offers more of the same in many ways — but with considerably enhanced visuals, refined mechanics and presentation and an all-new option to … Continue reading Rolling Thunder 2: Leila Takes the Lead
Splatterhouse: Elements of Horror - Yes, yes, yes, I know it was Halloween yesterday and thus I was supposed to cover a spooky game then, but I was busy then, so you’re getting it now instead. Splatterhouse is a classic 1988 horror game from Namco, and there are a variety of ways you can play it today — the most recent … Continue reading Splatterhouse: Elements of Horror
Namco Essentials: Rolling Thunder - Proper “spy games” are something I don’t feel like we see a lot of any more, perhaps since fascination with the concept waned somewhat with the end of the Cold War. That said, there are tons of awesome “spy games” from back in the day that we can still enjoy, and Rolling Thunder, a 1986 arcade game … Continue reading Namco Essentials: Rolling Thunder
Namco Essentials: Tank Force - While they’ve fallen a bit out of fashion in more recent years, tanks have been an important part of the gaming landscape pretty much since its dawn. (Then, of course, they trundled right over said landscape, flattened it and blew it up.) Indeed, one of the earliest competitive games — Atari’s Combat for 2600, released in 1977 … Continue reading Namco Essentials: Tank Force
Namco Essentials: Pac-Man Vs. - One of the most interesting inclusions in the Nintendo Switch release of Namco Museum is Pac-Man Vs. Originally released for GameCube in 2003, it’s an unusual title for Namco in that it wasn’t developed in-house as an arcade game; rather, it was designed by the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto and developed by Nintendo specifically for the … Continue reading Namco Essentials: Pac-Man Vs.
Namco Essentials: Sky Kid - While I was familiar with most of the other games in the Namco Museum collection for Switch, one that I hadn’t come across before was Sky Kid. First released in 1985, Sky Kid is a horizontally scrolling shoot ’em up based on the company’s Pac-Land hardware introduced the previous year. Indeed, this fact is fairly obvious, as the two … Continue reading Namco Essentials: Sky Kid
Namco Essentials: Dig Dug - Dig Dug represents a type of game that doesn’t really exist any more, at least in its original form: what I shall refer to from hereon as “Dirt and Boulders” games. The idea of a Dirt and Boulders game is that you dig through a bunch of dirt while trying to accomplish something, attempting not … Continue reading Namco Essentials: Dig Dug
Namco Essentials: Galaga - Some games are utterly timeless, remaining just as fun today as they were back on their original release. Namco’s Galaga is definitely one of those games, though it’s also a title the company has taken great pains to keep “relevant” over the years with numerous re-releases, the most recent at the time of writing being as part … Continue reading Namco Essentials: Galaga
Switch Essentials: Namco Museum - Interestingly, for a shiny modern piece of technology, one of the most appealing things about Nintendo’s Switch is the amount of retro gaming funtimes that can be had on the platform. While at the time of writing the system is yet to launch a Virtual Console service similar to that found on its two predecessors … Continue reading Switch Essentials: Namco Museum
