    Didn’t Krome get shut down a few weeks ago?

    I remember playing Pooyan from my old C64, was a pretty decent game actually. Twinbee is pretty good too.

    I’m hoping this update means we’ll get more decent arcade games on Game Room, I’m getting a bit tired of all these Intellivision & Atari 2600-games.

    @4 More than likely the original arcade version, I would imagine.

    I like Games Room. In concept, its a great idea. Game’s Room biggest problem was just how retro its selection ended up being. They went back a little *too* far, instead of grabbing the games and franchises that really set the arcade alight.

    Sunset Riders is a good start. I’ll be buying that the day it comes out.

    Amidar is a great game – good to see one that I actually remember fondly appearing.
