Speaking of iconic characters from console video games, if we look at the late 80’s â€“ early 90’s, up there among the great ones will surely be Sonic The Hedgehog. SEGA’s answer to the Mario Brothers, Sonic has appeared in numerous console titles across various platforms and even nabbed himself his own cartoon series and comics! Having largely been responsible for the companyâ€™s success, his adventures have been rather overlooked as of late, but not for long thanks to the multi-platform release of Sonic The Hedgehog 4â„¢.
I’ve fired up Metallica for this one. Not a bit of Metallica – I’ve cued up the entire 80’s and 90’s discography onto my iPod , but am focusing on the particularly nostalgic And Justice For All and the Black Album. Probably a few of you will remember a great and bloody pleasure that had younger versions of ourselves hacking at monsters back in the 90’s. Yes, you have it – Golden Axe has been released at the App Store. This is the Golden Axe that with the sweeping arcs of a lethal blade, dispelled cartoon-esque hero/villian games that dominated the beat ’em up scene nigh on twenty years ago.
