Arch Rivals

On its surface, Arch Rivals is a basketball video game on the NES. There are a few features, though, that make it somewhat notable. This is not a five-on-five version; rather, this cart features two-o...

Tengen Tetris

Alien Syndrome

There will always be a few common themes for video game titles. Medieval fantasy role-playing games, secret agent first-person shooters, cartoony platformers are among the most popular. Another brand ...

10 Yard Fight

That, really, is most of the game. There are very few actual rules intact: Out of bounds applies, as does the four-downs for ten yards system, and crude extra points are "kicked" by pointing toward th...

Gargoyle’s Quest 2

The game has an overview which makes it look a lot like the Dragon Warrior games but also once you enter a level, the game suddenly changes to a side scroller style level. It was very unique to combin...

Double Dragon 2

This is definitely the best double dragon game for the NES. I personally had a horrible time with double dragon 3 because of the difficulty and well, one life! They got a lot of things wrong that they...

Tiny Toons

The game is very interesting as you can pick a partner from the duck(Plucky), the Tazmanian devil (Dizzy), and the cat (Furball) to accompany you on your journey. This is key as each character has the...

Kirby’s Adventure

The gameplay delivers a very satisfying experience. You feel like you have total control of Kirby as you can fly anywhere and suck monsters to get their powers. The power up system is great as well as...

Bomberman

The first stage only features the most basic enemies which seem to be the 'Floaters' from the Speccy game I looked at recently, except here they're called 'Valcoms' which look like balloons and don't ...

The game is what every other platformer become in that era. Everyone wanted to copy the Super Mario Bros games as they were really successful and good at what they did which involved level design, gra...

Mega Man II

The Mega buster charge shot is missing in this game as it wasn't introduced until Mega Man 4 so you'll be having some tough times ahead. The regular Mega buster does damage the robot masters in strong...

Goonies

The levels are pretty simple. Just beat up a rat and get the bomb. Place the bomb in the door nearby and get what's inside. You must find three children and a key to be able to exit the level. Make su...

Cobra Triangle

Graphically, Cobra Triangle is fairly average in my view. Granted, I have little to compare it to from personal experience but things look pretty basic here. Backgrounds are largely featureless and pr...

Dragon Warrior III

Dragon Warrior 3 is just one of the best RPGs for the NES period. I personally liked it better than part four and more so than part 2. I don't think the first one counts as it's more of an introductio...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

This game is a lot of fun either way especially for TMNT fans. You get to fight your old buddies from the cartoon series like Bebop, Baxter, and some polar bear that froze New York City......yeah all ...

Super Contra

Super C has some of the craziest bosses around including aliens and Helicopters and more aliens well if you played it you'll see all of them. One of the more interesting things about this game is the ...
