River City Ransom has inspired the likes of Castle Crashers and even more obviously, Scott Pilgrim: The Game. It was made and published by Technos Japan, a developer noted for it’s beat em’ ups. Many of these are from the same series, which was heavily Americanised for the western video game markets. They also developed Nintendo World Cup on the Game Boy and NES. River City Ransom also became something of a cult hit among NES gamers, and a remake was released for the GBA years later. There is now a version available on the Virtual Console too. But despite this, the game is still very much unknown to many people.
The early 1990’s were something of a transitional period for gaming. Most games were arcade style shooters, beat em’ ups or platformers.

Many games were designed to be easy to pick up and play, so as to encourage people to keep pumping coins into the slot. Out to Lunch (Or Pierre le Chef’s Out to Lunch, to give it it’s Amiga name) is no exception, but with the added focus of being an educational game about food. Out to Lunch was released on the SNES in 1993 by recently defunct UK developer and publisher Mindscape, before being ported to the Amiga the following year.
