Classic Game Reviews on GameOgr

Gone in a sense but definitely not forgotten, some classic games such as Pacman and Donkey Kong are still games and now franchises that are played today. Others such as Kangaroo and Mr. Do! are much harder to find.

Play this Arkanoid flash arcade game. Arkanoid is a game similar to break out where you move the paddle to hit the ball.

Catacomb is a 2-D game (a top-down third-person shooter) created by John Carmack. It was originally created for the Apple II, and later ported to the PC. It should not be confused with The Catacomb, which is the second game in the series (originally named Catacomb II, but later renamed). It supports EGA and CGA graphics.

Who\'d have thought a country farmyard could be so stressful? Guide your man, Hen House Harry, around his hen house to pick up a dozen eggs on each level. Collect as much corn from each screen as you can (for bonus points), in the shortest possible time, without being pecked to death by the crazy hens. Watch out when the daft mother duck is let loose from the cage on level 9, causing Harry real trouble. You control your man using four direction keys and a jump key.

Crusher is an adventure game that takes place in a cavern of 25 rooms arranged in a 5×5 grid. Each room is randomly generated at the beginning of each game, so the game is different every time. Each room is full of boxes, unmovable tiles, diamonds, and three monsters. The monsters come in four colors, indicating their speed, but all will be the same within each room.

Hoosier City is basically the sequel to Robomaze III. The game features the same engine and the same setting: a city in a giant dome that is filled with fantasy enemies like orcs and skeletons and dragons. The hero even arrives in the same way (by helicopter), and still looks like the robot from the Robomaze series, except that he\'s red this time

The original arcade game Ms Pacman dates back to the early video game days of the 1980s. Ms Pacman made several changes to the overall game other than just changing from Pacman to Ms Pacman. One of the ghosts is now named "Sue" and the placement of the tunnels that connect the various stages of the game will vary from stage to stage. Overall, Ms Pacman was a huge success when it came out over 25 years ago and it has still retained much of that popularity even today. The free flash game below is a Miss Pacman clone rewritten in flash by Kent Patfield. If you\'ve never played a Pacman game before (heresy!), the object is to eat all the pellets whilst avoiding the 4 ghosts chasing you.
