I was glad that I came across Vampire: Master of Darkness. I wanted to avoid any of the mainline Castlevania games to save them for later. When I queued this up, I was surprised at how the game closely resembled the original Castlevania on the NES. Aside from having...

Genesis Games – Splatterhouse 2

Even if I owned a Sega Genesis back in the day, I never had the chance to play Splatterhouse 2 or 3. It was the type of game that you'd only find on Sega's consoles, so it was quite unique during it's time. But I don't know anyone who owned a copy of this. I also...

SNES Games – Slam Dunk SD Heat Up!!

Despite not knowing how to read Japanese, I remember spending a lot of time playing Slam Dunk SD Heat Up!! for the Super Famicom. Slam Dunk was a popular anime series in the country where I live in, and basketball is the most popular sport here as well. I was quite a...

Game Boy Advance Games – Spider-Man 2

I don't think I've already written about a game like Spider-Man 2. It's a sequel that was released for the same device that I played the original on. It is based on the same property - the Spider-Man films directed by Sam Raimi. More importantly, this sequel is from...

NES Games – Batman: The Video Game

Game Boy Advance Games – Superman Returns: Fortress of Solitude

NES Games – Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six

This time around, I'll be talking about Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six for the NES. Published by LJN, this title was developed by B.I.T.S. - the same group behind the Amazing Spider-Man sequels for the Game Boy. I didn't like their Game Boy Spider-Man games at...

SNES Games – The Amazing Spider-Man: Lethal Foes

I still don't understand why The Amazing Spider-Man: Lethal Foes was a Japan only release. Spider-Man is well known all around the world, so fans of the character are sure to buy copies of this game. Whatever the reason, the game never made it outside of Japan and a...

SNES Games – The Adventures of Batman & Robin

Despite being more of a Marvel Comics fan, my favorite 16-bit superhero video game is The Adventures of Batman & Robin. Not only does it capture the essence of Batman: The Animated Series which this game references, but it is also a well-designed video game. So I...
