I bought a copy of Rebooteroids as well. If you like good old Asteroids, you'll like this as well!

Cool, and great to see Jaguar reviews! Haven't played either of these but Rebooteroids sounds fun.

Do you have a "prototype" icon, BTW? It's easy to overlook the sentence where you mention the game wasn't officially released.

BTW you're very close to completing the official Jaguar release set, depending on whether you count things like Aircars, Battlesphere, Speedster II, and so forth (the boundary between "official release", "aftermarket release", "homebrew", and "unfinished prototype" can get fuzzy with the Jaguar, especially since some of the official releases were released in a beta state). Without those, there are fewer than 10 games left to cover:

Breakout 2000
Double Dragon V
Flashback
Hover Strike (cart version - some differences from CD)
International Sensible Soccer
Total Carnage
Worms
Zero 5

The cart version of Hover Strike has a horrible reputation, but I enjoyed it for what it was. Haven't played the CD version, but it supposedly has a better framerate and additional levels, among other differences.

Can I just say that if you ever make that list of worst video game titles ever, Rebooteroids had better be on it!

I love reviews like Barkley Shut Up And Jam. To me that's what makes this the best video game site out there. And especially with games from that early 5th generation era which in my opinion was the most fascinating time in video game history. I always love the Jag reviews.

I'd like to see reviews of the unfinished but available games like "Arena Football" and "Brett Hull Hockey"

I'd absolutely love to see those reviews too for Arena and Brett Hull. Also Zero 5 looks like a very interesting games. I think the VGC has really just about covered the whole Jaguar library

When I saw this review I immediately thought of this:

A group of amateur game designers took assets from this game, combined them with assets from other games like Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, Streets of Rage 2 and Diablo and made a short old-school RPG that takes place in the same universe as Space Jam. It's a lot of fun, despite the chintzy production values. Someone even did a speedrun of the game at AGDQ 2014:
