Your skull will make an excellent trophy! Venture across an alien planet, free the Androthi, and reclaim your fate with mercenary Captain Kyle “Blackthorne” Vlaros. Your destiny, in this case, is to seek cover and fire your shotgun non-stop in fast-paced 2D combat. Blackthorne combines action, platforming and exploration in a dark space fantasy that was the prelude to Warcraft and StarCraft. Play either of the original two console versions or the Definitive Edition, which includes a map and additional levels from the original 32-bit game.
Let the carnage begin! It’s time to burn the track in the hottest vehicle destruction competition since 1994. Blast your way through hundreds of galactic circuits and upgrade your vehicle with mines, missiles and thrusters to destroy the competition and become infinitely rich and beyond. RNRR is back with support for 16: 9 screens, original rock and metal hits like “Bad to the Bone” and “Born to be Wild” (now with artist recordings and MIDI versions you remember), and a 4-player local multiplayer mode in Definitive Edition. In addition, we have included the two original console versions in the Blizzard Arcade Collection; Whichever version you are playing, you will start the game with Olaf unlocked.
Is it my imagination or have we been here before? Erik, Baleog and Olaf are three burly Vikings with different abilities (speed, strength and… er… a shield) who have been trapped in the zoo of Tomator, an alien tyrant. Will you help them overcome asymmetrical platforms and complex puzzles so they can return home, or will you stay and watch them die again and again? What if you do both? Put your skills to the test with two original versions of the game, or try the Definitive Edition, which includes 5 levels from the 1994 version.
