About this site
Old schoold gamer view!Anyone who had the pleasure of growing up in the late 80's and early 90's will undoubtedly hold a place in their heart for the oldschool video games. It was all about having some fun and you didn't need an expensive console or home computer to do so!
RETROSHOWCASE.GR is a website created back in 2004 exclusively for retro gaming fans. The main idea behind our work was based on our affection towards the retro gaming scene and every retro gaming machine.
We actually lived and watched the gaming evolution from 1986 till today, starting with an Atari-clone and an Amstrad CPC 464 and, up to now, we have collected a whole bunch of retro gaming 'stellars'.Old schoold gamer view!We do not want get exhaustive so we just make brief reviews for every retro game we like with most of them containing our very own gameplay video. No walkthroughs or longplays this time. We just make a sample video for you to enjoy and motivate you to try it yourselves.We lived it on its core and we still keep retro gaming alive by also participating in major gaming events.The simple fact is that no matter how much technology seems to advance, retro gaming will always be interesting enough to spend a chunk of your time...

Atari ST: A great pixel-painting tool!
AtariSTIn 1985, the new Motorola 68000 CPU-based machines such as the Atari ST and Commodore Amiga (1000) hit the market, offering similar ease of use and superior graphics capabilities, including great depth of color palettes and animation capabilities. And since they cost less, both machines have opened up the computer graphics field to even more software developers and consumers back then. The little computers are starting -more-
The Amiga's graphics capabilities!
Amiga_GFXBack in the 1986, many programs have been developed over the last few years for casual use on home computers. But the new 68000 Motorola CPU-based machines, such as the Atari ST and (especially) the Commodore Amiga, offered graphics capabilities previously seen only on mainframe computers. The little computers are starting to catch up with the big ones. The evolution of microcomputer graphics in 1986 has just -more-
