Raptor: Call of the Shadows

Soo.. another day or so till the test. Illness can be time consuming. Oh well, I'm not really in any hurry to get the test done.. I just hate hurrying up to wait.

Meanwhile I am about to play an old game called Raptor: Call of the Shadows. I don't know if any of you guys have ever heard of it but it's old vertical-scrolling shoot-em-up game made back in 1994. Why am I playing this ancient thing? Well it was a great game.. and I had a case of nostalgia the other day and I just had to find it and play it again.

Anyone remember Duke Nukem? And not Duke Nukem 3D.. I mean the first three (I think there were three) side-scrolling shoot-em-ups? I seriously fell in love with those back in the day.. they came with 3D and I kind of liked them more in some ways :P. I managed to find that CD and am going to try to play that one too.

Seems like it's retro game Wednesday for me lol. Thank you guys for reading! ^_^

  5. I remember Duke, not the other game though. My favorite retro game is Galaga. Played it just last week I think, right on a classic NES no less. Good times.

  6. Couldn't find an e-mail on your site, so I figured I'd just leave a comment right quick. Feel free to delete it.

    That aside, I saw this and it made me think of you.
