Side Arms

Side Arms holds the distinction of being one of the first games I ever played for the TG-16. I remember it being brutally difficult but fun and that description holds up. This is a great arcade port and a solid shooter although it has stiff competition on the system.

An awesome action game with ridiculous production values. I can understand it might not be everyone's cup of tea if you like the old style of Turrican but personally I'll take this any day.

Play this game! Absolutely phenomenal and deserving of a higher profile.

A Boy & His Blob

One of the most creative games in the NES library but its execution leaves something to be desired. The Wii remake is this concept fully realized.

Iron Tank

I dismissed Iron Tank because of Ikari Warriors but I'm glad I gave it another chance. Its a bit long but an otherwise excellent shooter and one of SNK's better NES games.

An awful port of the arcade game and one of the system's worst games. Stay away.

Probably the second best Genesis launch title after Golden Axe. Still fairly fun after all these years despite stiff competition.

Some good ideas buried under lackluster execution. I wanted to like it but its flaws weigh it down heavily.

An improvement over the arcade game but a bit too repetitive in my opinion. There are better options if you want an NES shooter.

One of the best licensed titles for the NES and a great action game in general. I came to this one late and regret it. Still worth playing today.
