About this site
Old schoold gamer view!Anyone who had the pleasure of growing up in the late 80's and early 90's will undoubtedly hold a place in their heart for the oldschool video games. It was all about having some fun and you didn't need an expensive console or home computer to do so!
Retroshowcae.com is a website created back in 2004 exclusively for retro gaming fans. The main idea behind our work was based on our affection towards the retro gaming scene and every retro gaming machine.
We actually lived and watched the gaming evolution from 1986 till today, starting with an Atari-clone and an Amstrad CPC 464 and, up to now, we have collected a whole bunch of retro gaming 'stellars'.
We do not want get exhaustive so we just make brief reviews for every retro game we like with most of them containing our very own gameplay video. No walkthroughs or longplays this time. We just make a sample video for you to enjoy and motivate you to try it yourselves.
We lived it on its core and we still keep retro gaming alive by also participating in major gaming events.
The simple fact is that no matter how much technology seems to advance, retro gaming will always be interesting enough to spend a chunk of your time...

The Atari ST and Amiga computing evolution!
AmigaSTThe Amiga and Atari ST computers (of course along with Macintosh and Apple IIGS) had enough processing power to perform calculation-intensive graphics (and other type of processing) activities at acceptable speeds. Surely back in the mid 80's the great processing speed of the Motorola 68000 chip (65816 on the Apple IIGS), the high memory capacity, and of course the ability for the programmers to call native system -more-
 
An 8bit gaming miracle!
pcengineAmong the best video-game consoles that offered high quality visuals and sound, PC-Engine's (Turbografx16 in America and Europe) featured a mixed 8-16bit based architecture developed from Hudson Soft and NEC. I will not go through the advanced features of TurboCD (same CPU/GPU though CD-based audio, extra RAM), and I'll stick on the original, pure PC-Engine / Turbografx-16 here. -more-
Atari ST: A great pixel-painting tool!
AtariSTIn 1985, the new Motorola 68000 CPU-based machines such as the Atari ST and Commodore Amiga (1000) hit the market, offering similar ease of use and superior graphics capabilities, including great depth of color palettes and animation capabilities. And since they cost less, both machines have opened up the computer graphics field to even more software developers and consumers back then. The little computers are starting -more-
