This was my first contact with the fictional universe of Middle Earth created by J. R. R. Tolkien, back in 1989, and was designed by late Mike Singleton (1951-2012), who is considered the father of home computer gaming.
Let's take a look!

Spanish publisher ERBE Software fought, in late 80s, a huge battle against piracy drastically reducing the prices of original games. At a certain point, in 1985, created their own branch for software development to separate it from the main publishing business. So, TOPO Soft was born.
Let's take a look at how this all happened!

Here's my latest two episodes:

Homebrew titles for the ZX Spectrum are pouring down like rain drops! But Stormfinch is kind of special, it uses the Nirvana Engine that can produce an amazing multi colored tiled display never seen before on a Spectrum game:

July of 1985 was when it all began for the Amiga family of computers. It was so ahead of its time that everyone seemed to have a problem to categorize it, even Commodore!
Regardless of the model of the Amiga, here's the 26 video games that, even today, I still relish playing on my Amiga!
Enjoy!

Practicaly at the same time was made available on Steam, iTunes and Google Play the video game adaptation, just like it would happen in late 80s and early 90s!

Game Over is an amazing action run and gun platformer that was a target of a huge controversy around its cover art by Luis Royo.
Let's take a look at this amazing story that helped selling lots of copies and placed Game Over as one of the most famous Spanish video games ever made.

I’ve just discovered the 1992 MegaDrive/Genesis port of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the action game, and I was positively impressed by this upgrade from the 1989 original home computer versions that I’ve played so much back then!
So, are you ready for some platforming action?...

While cleaning and reorganizing things on my renewed room, I was hugely struck by nostalgia when I was going through my collection. So many memories flashed right away through my mind, and I just sat and played some of my personal favorite video games on the systems that I have plugged in and ready to play.
Enjoy!

This game was released in October of 1986. Two months earlier, in August, Metroid was made available in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. In September, and also for the Famicom Disk System, Akumajou Dracula – aka Castlevania – was, as well, released in Japan. So, unknowingly, The Sacred Armor of Antiriad gave birth to the metroidvania subgenre.
Let's take a look!

The Rambo movie franchise was always a nice subject for video game developers to adapt and bring that armored mayhem to consoles and computers, so, in this episode of the Pixel THING we’ll be taking a look at the titles based in this 80s action movie hero!

In the 80s, and even early 90s, graphics weren’t, at all, the selling point of video game. Covers and adverts on magazines were!
Let’s take a look at some examples on how to sell a computer game in the 80s and early 90s!
