Magical Chase Retro Review

Real Talk By: The Wizard

Magical Chase is a Hu-Card released for the PC Engine in Japan in 1991, and released for the American Turbo Grafx-16 in the very last day of December in 1993. It was developed by Palsoft, and distributed by a company called Quest. It is said to be the very last English Hu-Card released for the console. This article will be a review of the American version of the game, which I owned, and beat many times over in the late 90’s, and most recently a few weeks ago. Before we get started here is a little excerpt direct from the English manual to get you up to date on the story. Continue reading “Magical Chase Retro Review”

The current gaming trend of taking something that was once very good and bringing out yearly renditions that fail to stand up to the original few (I’m looking at you, Assassin’s Creed) is a pattern that mirrors that of the famous horror franchises of the 80’s-90’s: Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and of course, Friday the 13th. The iconic machete wielding undead serial killer donning a goalie mask just won’t die, in more ways than one. With 12 films (including the reboot and awfully funny Freddy vs Jason), Jason is one of the most prolific fictional baddies that endures across decades. His inclusion in the recent Mortal Kombat X has piqued PlayLegit’s interest in going back to Mr. Voorhees’ gaming roots: the infamously difficult and rather pointless Friday the 13th NES game. How does it hold up after 26 years?
