Aliens: The Computer Game (ZX Spectrum)

Chilling out for a bit with the Colonial Marines aboard the U.S.S. Sulaco.

Danger Freak (Amiga)

I've been asked why in my first post, Square one, I showed three title screens and then never showed anything from in game. And the reason is because it never even occurred to me at the time to screenshot anything else from them. They looked pretty bad and I didn't play them long.

But apparently people are curious now, they want to see the games! So here's the first of them:

All this and more might possibly be happening in this game!

Do Re Mi Fantasy: Milon no DokiDoki Daibouken (SNES)

Yo yo yo, listen up. This is a story... of a kid... yeah just shut up and listen.

Long long ago in the cute land of magic...

On the Ball: World Cup Edition (MS-DOS)

Taking a break from the stress of managing a football team in the World Cup.

Doomsday Warrior (SNES)

Hmm. Decisions, decisions...

Donald in Maui Mallard (SNES)

Also known as Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow in the US.

Oh crap, ANOTHER Donald Duck game? This time he's dressed up as Magnum PI it seems.

Dirt Racer (SNES)

Not the most beautiful of title screens. It looks just as bad in motion.

Dennis the Menace (SNES)

I get the feeling this is going to be the American Dennis, not the more likeable British comic book character.

Daffy Duck: The Marvin Missions (SNES)

Daffy Duck? Shouldn't that be Duck Dogers?

Dragon Age II (Demo) (PC)

I never really considered putting contemporary games on this blog, but I thought I'd make an exception this once for Dragon Age 2. Mostly because people keep telling me to do it.

Click the pics for a closer look.

Big Sky Trooper (SNES)

So called because you play a general and it takes place in space.

3 Ninjas Kick Back (Genesis/Mega Drive)

This is the final Mega Drive game for now. I'm moving onto another console after this.

Oh no.

688 Attack Sub (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Way to make attack submarines look boring.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors (Genesis/Mega Drive)

I get the feeling this might be one a few of you people have played yourselves.

It's an early 90s game by LucasArts, so it can't be THAT bad, right?

Ys III: Wanderers from Ys (Genesis/Mega Drive)

I've played a Ys game before I believe. If I remember right it was a jRPG viewed from above, where you walked into enemies to defeat them.

Virtual Bart (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Simpsons games usually range between crap and worse, so lets see how this one rates.

Children of Mana (DS) - Guest Post

Another guest post by Ocean.
The older Mana series are dear to my heart, and a huge inspiration for me. I saw the reviews for the newer Mana series, and they were pretty disappointing. I have tried out Sword of Mana, and I was not a fan of that one. Final Fantasy Adventure (which Sword of Mana is a remake of) is one of the games I've replayed most. I felt they dragged out the story and added silly stuff that didn't add to the game.

But how does Children of Mana fare?

Earnest Evans (Genesis/Mega Drive)

That has to be the shiniest logo yet. For some reason I have trouble taking the name 'Earnest' seriously for an action hero.

Syd of Valis (Genesis/Mega Drive)

It's called Valis SD in Japan, as in 'super deformed', but apparently it was mistranslated. Either that or they really liked the name 'Syd' as they changed the character's name to it too.

Rings of Power (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Looks like someone couldn't get the Lord of the Rings license... oh hey, it's by Naughty Dog. That's got to be a good sign, right?

Ranger-X (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Hey, that looks a bit like a giant robot! The X stands for Xcitement!

Boppin' (Amiga)

Video game heroes from various games meet in the intro to Boppin'

I think this might be intended as a homage to something, but WHAT?

Quad Challenge (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Hey, it's quad biking. I love the name 'quad bike', it almost makes sense.

Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Why Phantasy anyway? Were they worried that people would get it mixed up with Final Fantasy? The Japanese title of the game is just spelt normally.

Normy's Beachbabe-o-Rama (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Hey, it MIGHT be a good game, stop jumping to conclusions! I'm not sure about the shading on that girl's face though. Also, why is he using a lit bomb as a yo-yo?

Pylo Noveau (PC) - Guest Post

Guest post by Ocean.

Ocean here, gonna try this indie game, called Pylo Noveau! Actually, I already have been playing, but I reaally don't want to replay the first 2 levels!

A rather weird looking title, and it doesn't look like the in game graphics. I suppose most titles don't, but oh well. But let's get started!... on level 3.

Light Crusader (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Well at least it's not another light gun game. Probably.

Lethal Enforcers II: Gunfighters (Genesis/Mega Drive)

This game came out in 1994, which I believe was late in the Mega Drive's lifetime, so it'll probably look quite good.

Landstalker (Genesis/Mega Drive)

And now, Landstalker!

King's Bounty (Genesis/Mega Drive)

This game is going to have a character creation screen isn't it?

Yes this was commercially released.

Goofy's Hysterical History Tour (Genesis/Mega Drive)

I really hope I don't like this game.

Cutie Suzuki no Ringside Angel (Genesis/Mega Drive)

What the fuck...

I'm expecting GREAT THINGS.

Sepia break.

Greendog (Genesis/Mega Drive)

I have to admit that this is only half what I imagined. I thought 'stylish logo text, "cool" hero... possibly even an actual green dog'. I was NOT expecting that semi-realistic art style though.
