Gunman Clive launched previously on the 3DS, Android, and iOS marketplaces to high praise and great sales -- now, it's on Steam. I'm a huge fan of it personally, as I think it's a great homage to classic platformers of old -- particularly the Mega Man series.

One of the best aspects of Clive is how easy it is to plow through one playthrough -- which takes roughly an hour. Not only does this faithfully replicate the NES era in terms of length, but it also ensures that no portion of the game overstays its welcome -- and with a $1.99 pricetag, it makes perfect sense.

I had a chance to play the recently released Steam version, and it's basically the same game people have been enjoying for about a year now. It's a very basic port with no additional content, but it comes with controller support, a higher resolution, and extra achievements. The game natively supports 360 controllers, so if you have something else, just get your PC to emulate one by way of x360ce.

Check out the game's Steam listing here if you're interested.

Gunman Clive now has an update for those nasty crashes

Gunman Clive is one of the best games on the 3DS eShop. I really enjoyed my time with it (especially with the secret character), and for just a few bucks, it's a complete steal. At the same time, it did have a few major glitc...more

Review: NES Remix 2

NES Remix was able to scratch an itch for many retro enthusiasts out there, but it lacked a certain spark that made it a must-buy for the average gamer. It would be hard to really consider half of the selections "classic...more

Review: Trials Fusion

There's nothing quite like Trials and, after several games in the popular racing/platforming series, fans know what to expect from developer RedLynx: more of the same. Yes, there will be a stupid, amazing theme song you'll ha...more
