Retro Games Are Hot AgainWritten by David D. Deprice
Bugatro Gold http://www.deprice.com/bugatrongold.htm
Bugatron Gold is a well-designed space-shooter game borrows ideas from classics such as Galaga. In Bugatron, you must eradicate evil alien insects, which swoop and dive at your spaceship in a variety of formations. The polished graphics added to our enjoyment, and sound effects are blasting cool.
Cosmo Bots http://www.deprice.com/cosmobots.htm
Cosmo Bots takes its cue from addictive classics Jezzball and Qix. However, that's where similarity ends, because Cosmo Bots has different shapes for each level, 3D rendered graphics, digital sound, new enemies, and tons of power-ups. The free version features a full set of 50 levels to play, and does not require any special hardware.
Bricks Of Egypt http://www.deprice.com/bricksofegypt.htm
At its core, Bricks of Egypt is an Arkanoid clone, but it goes beyond replicating frequently imitated art of busting bricks to place a refreshing emphasis on creative level design. Sure, there's a ball and paddle, but Arcade Labs layers these familiar basics with Egyptian-themed power-ups, bonuses and special challenges (such as hitting water drops to extinguish fire bricks or striking keys to unlock new areas on screen).
Meet Dropheads, hilarious and loveable characters with treasure on their mind. Help these strange little guys navigate seas by matching them in groups of four or more. Then, watch them bounce off screen. As you go, collect pieces of a treasure map and assemble them to find hidden loot. And with two game modes, Arcade for those who like a fast pace and Strategy for those who like a relaxing diversion, there's something for everyone.

With Hope and Doubt, New York-based Weekes takes listeners back to Caribbean of his childhood and here, against an island-beat backdrop, he tells his autobiographical tales, both tragic and hopeful. On "MPLA," Weekes offers a poignant
