It’s Episode 44 of the Arcade Perfect Podcast and this time we review ports of SNK’s classic game Ikari Warriors.

Matt Cawley (Retro Domination) is back with the AP team to tank through all of the ports. Hopefully we survive playing these versions and there are no casualties!

Can the team pick one Golden Turd or will there be multiples!!

It’s the Arcade Perfect Podcast Episode 41.

Pelly joins us again as we kick off 2020 with a bang and feature a forgotten gem by Namco ‘Metro Cross’ (1985).

As the Runner your job is leg it across Metro-Cross within the countdown timer by avoiding obstacles, jumping on Skateboards and getting speed ups. Fail to do this and you’ll be SHOCKED TO DEATH!!!!

We play test all of the conversions of the game and see how they hold up to the arcade original. The GOLDEN TURD™ was a hard one to call for the first ep of the year which is a first!

Ok, Ok, SEGA didn’t design Choplifter, we know it all started with the Apple II computer but we thought what the hell, it’s a good game with plenty of versions so why not compare and discuss the best and worst that’s out there.

It’s the Arcade Perfect Podcast Episode 36 ‘Street Fighter 2’ This episode we have record number of ‘New Challengers’ reviewing the ports of this iconic fighter.
Joining Taggsta and Daz this episode are Rich Yaxley (RGDS Podcast) and Mark Cassar (This & That Gaming Podcast).

We talk about the arcade scene in 1991 and what it was like to be around during the arcade release of Street Fighter 2 and plenty of story’s are shared. There’s the usual trivia on the game and then the guys put up a huge fight (of their willpower) to play through the ports and not one but multiple systems games end up in the Golden Turd Slop Bucket, new term we will take from Rich Yaxley 🙂

Oh, and Chun Li drops in too with her Spinning Bird Kick and banter.
