What does Konami mean to you? To me it means two wavy ribbons parallel to each other, one orange and one red, set against a stark white background. Whenever I saw that logo appear on my TV screen it was as much a seal of quality to me as the Nintendo and Sega badges were. I knew that the game that came after that logo was going to be of a high quality and I was rarely, if ever, disappointed. I’m sure, though, that the word Konami means a completely different thing to every reader that picks up this magazine, and that’s largely because Konami has had so much success in the videogame industry over the past four decades; not bad for a company that started off as a repairer and renter…

the worm turns

Tommy Tallarico, who is known for his work as a videogame composer, recently sent the gaming world into a spin when he revealed that a brand-new Earthworm Jim game was being made for the upcoming Intellivision Amico console – another project which Tommy is the driving force behind. Additionally, he revealed that virtually all the members of the original Earthworm Jim team, which should include Dave Perry, Nick Bruty, Mike Dietz and Doug TenNapel, are also helping out. We spoke to Tommy to find out more. Why has it taken so long to reassemble the old team, and what is it like to be back working together? We have tried to do something similar in the past, but there were always a few people who either weren’t available or there were rights…

What do you want from a new Earthworm Jim game? Didn’t know it was happening. But keep the fully automatic pistol, fun platforming and overall weirdness and I am on board. @_LastLegend I want the same great animation and improved visuals to make it easier to tell what is and what isn’t a platform. @videogamenewsr2 Mixed feelings, really. The original was neat at the time, and is very much ‘of its time’ for better or worse. I always preferred the animated series, to be honest. @Stressed Local I am. But I ain’t buying the new system it’s exclusively on. @RonaldSDean I am really excited for Jim’s return. Basically the same game, but with save states of some sort. Maybe a little more frantic gameplay? @sidcrazysteve I’m super stoked for as new Earthworm Jim game, just bummed out I most likely won’t…

Andy Palmer is a very patient man. The owner of Bury’s Arcade Club has just opened a brand-new venue in Leeds and has been constantly shuttling between the two locations in order to ensure that everything is perfect for this month’s launch. “I have actually been planning to open multiple venues for years,” he candidly tells us,”but first I needed to see if my business model worked before we committed to more venues.” Andy has been putting lots of thought into his new location and he’s aware of just how important each decision he makes is as well as the risks he has to take. “Location is always the main factor as well as population demographics,” he continues. “Also, the initial investment in a new venue is huge! (Whatever number you’re…

day of play

Manchester’s annual Play Expo event has become one of the highlights for any retro gaming fan and this year’s was no different. Actually, it was a little different, because it was housed at the Manchester Central Exhibition Complex instead of its usual home at Event City. Easily accessible and with plenty of space in the main hall, the new location seemed to easily handle the large crowds that turned up to marvel at all the excellent games that were on offer. As always, the many pinball tables and arcade machines were constantly in use, and there was a great variety of games on offer catering to all tastes. Space Invaders Part II, Marble Madness and Power Drift were just a few of the classics on offer and there were rarely long…
