Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the darkest, horsiest dark horse of GameSpite Journal 10: Marc Host’s fond look back at Data East’s Joe & Mac. I’m not sure what possessed Mr. Host to play this game in the first place — it was one of those generic-looking platformers most people passed over because even 20 years ago we were pretty sick of generic-looking platformers — or what caused him to clutch nostalgia for the game close to his heart for decades until he’d eventually write it up here. But I’m glad he did, because it sounds kind of like an OK game! Sort of like a prehistoric Alien Soldier… except maybe not really.
