Ziggurat Interactive and 612GAMES just launched a whole mess of classic gaming for the PC. Titles include Caveman Ninja, Heavy Barrel and more.

Retro

Never seeming to let up in terms of popularity, retro gaming also seems to never run out of titles to port to fresh platforms. That’s the case here today, with Ziggurat Interactive’s newly announced slate of games heading to the PC.

Together with 612GAMES, the publisher has unleashed a series of 8 games, all of which are titles from the early days of console gaming. They’re all from developer Data East as well, which has a chunky back-catalog. The company has likely put out quite a few fames that you know well.

All 8 games can be found on GOG, Steam, or on the Humble Store. Pretty much all the bases covered there, so whichever way you prefer to buy, you can grab a couple of the following.
