Recently (well, about a month or so ago) I attended Play Expo Manchester, which is one of the premier events in the UK calendar for the Retro Gaming community. I recorded a video on the event, which was first shared on my retro gaming blog Retro Garden, but I’m now sharing here.
Play Expo Manchester 2016 Video Review
Overall, I really enjoy these events and this year was no different. They always seem to find new ways to improve these events and this year as well as the Baby Pac-Man hybrid machine I really enjoyed playing the Metal Slug esque Dragon Bros and the Uridium styled Hyper Sentinel.
Games Mentioned in Play Expo 2016 Video
- Dragon Bros – is a very fun shooter based on Metal Slug and Gunstar Heroes with vibrant graphics and a great look. It’s well worth hunting out if you are a fan of the genre.
- Hyper Sentinel – is a game based on Uridium but using all the power of modern day machines. With a great look and cracking soundtrack, this is made slightly more forgiving than the original. Be sure to hunt this out!
- WiFi Wars – a massively multiplayer Mobile enabled stage show. Seriously, go and see this!
