From the archives, a review of what might be fallen-giant SNK’s last attempt at something almost entirely original (ignoring for a moment it was a rhythm game with a style that looks very familiar…). Cool Cool Toon was a Dreamcast game that did everything right and still managed to suck.

Android Review: Revenge of the Rob-O-Bot Pinball

by NFG - 19th January 2013 in Mobile Devices, Reviews

Sometimes things surprise you. On the Zen Pinball forums someone mentioned this Rob-O-Bot pinball game and said favourable things about it. Others agreed, the developer chimed in, and so I went and had a look. I had seen the developer’s […]

Well… Lesse… I run the site and do my best to update it every decade or so. NFG Games has helped inspire me to actually publish some long lost articles and reviews I have written over the years. With […]
