Classic Game Room reviews EARTH DAY for iPod from publisher Chillingo. This arcade style game has elements of Robotron 2084 mixed with Asteroids, if you never moved around the screen at all. Enemies (asteroids and space ship thingies) converge on you from all sides trying to invade earth and it's your job to fend them off and save our beloved home world. Arm your planetary defense system thing with a variety of upgrades like multiple guns, shields, rapid fire and faster rotation. Earn weapon upgrades and a huge ass laser like the one you get in Heavy Weapon. Come to think of it, this game is a bit like Heavy Weapon as well. How long can you survive the relentless assault on earth? 1 minute, 5 minutes...? A challenging game with infinite replay value for fans of arcade games, the Earth Day iPod app video game is amazingly fun and addictive with 2 choices of controls (touch or tilt) and a hip synth style beat. Recommended for fans of the aforementioned arcade games who want a great pick up and play blast-fest for your iPod Touch or iPhone. This CGRHD review has gameplay footage from Earth Day for iPod or iPhone (iTouch), available for a reasonable price from iTunes app store.

Sears was the place for electronics in the late '70s (well, Sears and Radio Shack) and they worked with Atari to launch their own classy game system, the Sears Video Arcade! Enjoy Tele-Games brand games like Tanks-Plus which is basically Combat except it has the Sears brand on it!! The Sears Video Arcade has that familiar Atari 6-switch styling but with Tele-Games branding on top, Video Arcade branding on the front, a rich walnet-style wood grain finish and silver trim. Serious collectors should enjoy having this amazing piece of video game history in their collection, and it plays great games!!
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR hats & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room reviews FAR CRY 3: BLOOD DRAGON for Xbox 360, also available for PlayStation 3 PS3 and PC! All hail the '80s action movies like Predator, The Terminator, Robocop, Tron, Rambo, Die Hard and The Karate Kids because it's Hot Shots Part Deux the video game, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon! This parody of the post-nuclear war '80s vision of the future is a standalone downloadable game that plays like a smaller, sillier Far Cry 3. Basically, the designers used the same assets and made everything look like Tron. Enjoy an amazing musical score reminiscent of Aliens, The Terminator and Predator as well as Michael Biehn's hilarious acting, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is rad!
