Retrogasm! Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja

Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja is a curious beast, forged in the hellfires of early ’90s popular culture, where words like tubular and bodacious were being used in adverts as a way of peddling Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures to the bright-eyed children of the Saturday morning cartoon generation.

I was one of those kids, sitting there watching Phillip Scofield and Gordon the Gopher compere some of the finest cartoons known to humanity like Transformers, The Raccoons and Dungeons and Dragons.

Week of Rage: Contender – Turtles in Time

Cowabunga! Ok that wasn’t cool, but this game certainly was back in the day. Released on the SNES across Europe in 1992, this title was similar to Streets of Rage, but wasn’t quite as deep. What it was however, was a riot in two player, with a simplistic fighting mechanic and loads of stages.


Indeed. So awesome in fact that Ubisoft comissioned a remake on Xbox Live in honour of the 25th anniversary of the characters. It’s a lovely HD remake complete with new visuals. Still, I always prefered the turtles when they had pupils, not sure why.

So to commemorate this brilliant and incredibly nostalgic title, here’s a new video blog. Enjoy and keep the comments coming 🙂

If you played this game and enjoyed it, please let me know, I’m a bit of a Turtles fan. I’m keen to see what people liked about the game.
