01/11/2020: I've put all our videos onto the site now and the review portions of the vids have been transcribed underneath for those who just want to read how we feel about the games. These are located on the reviews sidebar, replacing the old magazine archives (these were always supposed to be placeholders until the site got its own reviews, it only took 12 odd years to replace them!). Those who want to look at the old archive of magazine reviews can still do so by clicking the link at the top of the new reviews pages.

30/04/2018: As of about a month ago we've decided to dip our toes into something new. As a way of keeping the site going we are now producing video reviews in our spare time, these will eventually be properly integrated into the site, but at the moment are only available on our Youtube channel here. Its all admitedlly a bit bargain basement at the moment, but we will strive to improve the quality over time.

17/02/2018: A sort of big announcement here. Our sister site, ComicStrip-Sanctuary has not done too well so its content is being merged here. As Retro-Sanctuary still pays for itself at the moment its not in any danger of being closed.

19/07/2017: Completed a Top 100 48k ZX Spectrum games list. The Spectrum was a British computer that was designed to be a hobbyist machine and tool to teach entry level programming but instead became used primarily for games. As a games machine it was somewhat comparable to the Colecovision, being released at the same time in the same price range.

09/07/2015: After seven months and two complete restarts, the Top 100 GameCube Games

07/09/2014: Completed a Top 100 Dreamcast List

20/04/2014: Completed an article highlighting some of the early pioneering platform games.

05/03/2014: Finally completed my PC-Engine CD list, its here. It was a difficult process, and due to the site's rules on imports I had to settle for a top 50 on this occasion. Had I included unfriendly imports I could've easily reached 100. Due to this factor I have added some additional info in many of the entries.

13/10/2013: Completed a couple more comparisons, B.O.B, and Great Circus Mystery
