If you win a game at a lower difficulty level, the following game is automatically played at the next highest difficulty level. Gameplay is top-down and vertical-scrolling. There are no plays or formations to select from before the action begins; the player can take the snap as quarterback or choose one of two players on defense. On offense, the player can either keep the ball on the run, toss it to one of the two running backs, or throw long to the receiver; an interception turns the ball over to the other team. If a touchdown can't be scored, then the directional kicking system can be used to punt the ball or try for a field goal.

Set during the war of the lance in the dragonlance world of krynn, the player controls dragons in missions against the forces of evil. At the start of the game, one of three dragons can be selected (bronze, silver and gold), each with different attributes in speed and armor and two different breath attacks. In each of the more than 12 missions, several objectives must be completed: enemy dragons must be hunted down, ships sunk and fortresses destroyed. The dragon can change between low and high altitudes to avoid obstacles and enemy fire and to attack certain types of enemies: ground troops can only be destroyed from the lower altitude, dragons only from the higher one. Killed enemy dragons leave power-ups that grant temporary protection, speed, or let the dragon regain health. Some of the missions include boss battles against large enemies like a giant kraken or a powerful dark wizard. In two-player mode, the second player (who can select a different dragon) can continue in the mission where the previous player failed.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Hillsfar (Usa)

Play a would-be hero in the city of hillsfar, where action and adventure await the daring adventurer. Join the local guild and complete missions from the guild master in a quest for glory and gold!

hillsfar is a "single-hero" role playing game (in comparison to other advanced dungeons & dragons rpgs, where the player usually controls a group of characters). A combination of 1st person perspective (when traveling in the city of hillsfar) and 3rd person perspective (usually in some action-style mini-quests) viewpoints. As a would-be-hero, four classes are available in a randomly generated mission-based plot: thief, mage, fighter or cleric. Each class, to a certain extent, has a different approach for completing quests. In hillsfar, gameplay usually consists of various "mini-games" that are needed to complete the quests or missions provided at the local guild by the guild master. These mini-games include, but are not limited to:

1. Fighting at the arena (3rd person perspective)
competing at the archery range (1st person perspective)
exploring buildings or mazes (top-down perspective)
riding a horse while avoiding obstacles (3rd person perspective/side-scrolling)
locking picking doors and chests (1st person perspective)

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Pool Of Radiance (Usa)

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Pool Of Radiance (Usa)

Located on the northern shore of the moonsea in forgotten realms, phlan was once a flourishing trade city. However, lately monsters began settling in it, gradually turning whole districts into ruins. Only new phlan remained under human control, but its inhabitants are afraid to venture into the monster-infested areas. In order to clean the nearby barren river and rebuild phlan, local authorities spread rumors about alleged riches hidden somewhere in the city. A party of adventurers, attracted by these news, sails towards phlan and accepts the quest. Pool of radiance is the first adaptation of the advanced dungeons & dragons role-playing system in a computer game format. In the beginning of the game the player can use a pre-made party of six characters or create each of them from scratch. Six races (human, elf, dwarf, gnome, halfling, and half-elf) and four classes (fighter, cleric, wizard, and thief) are available. The player can tweak the attributes of the characters and assign a moral alignment to each one. Exploration of the town and hostile areas (dungeons) is viewed from a first-person perspective in a pseudo-3d world. Enemy encounters are random and take place on separate isometric combat screens, where player-controlled party and enemies take turns fighting each other. Experience points are awarded for defeating enemies, and characters level up after having accumulated set amounts. Fighters gain more attacks, thieves become proficient in backstabbing, while clerics and wizards can memorize more spells to cast before they need to rest. Non-human characters can also "multi-class" (learn the abilities of another class) when leveling up. The nes version was substantially different from other versions. It removed references to the adventure's journal and some of the more complex features of the computer versions, like different currency units. Battles were significantly reduced in size, the graphics were overhauled and redesigned so that the game could be controlled with a control pad, and music was written for it. A randomly generated dungeon feature was also removed.

Alfombra Magica, La (Spain) (Rev 1) (Gluk Video) (Unl)

Alfombra Magica, La (Spain) (Rev 1) (Gluk Video) (Unl)

Magic carpet 1001 (called "arabian nights" in chinese) is an unlicensed shoot-'em-up developed by mega soft (ntdec) and distributed by ntdec in 1991, caltron and gluk video in 1992 and asder in 1993 as part of the asder 20-in-1 multicart. Its caltron 6-in-1 incarnation is arguably the most well-known. The game is a standard nes shoot-'em-up. It is four levels long and mostly takes place in an arabian setting, with the fourth level being in space. There are many enemies that stand in the way of your character (an aladdin-type who rides a magic carpet, although the title screen suggests he is a genie) which follow set patterns that become more complex with each level. As well as this, all four levels have a different boss; a witch, a snake in a flying jar, a giant skull and giant lips respectively, with the latter often being considered to be far too difficult. Numerous power-ups can be collected at random by wiping out a certain group of enemies before they disappear, with p power-ups upgrading your weapon, s power-ups increasing the player's speed, an icon of your character's face for an extra life and hearts giving you several hit points, and a magic lamp in the fourth level which maxes out your character's health. By default, your character starts with 6 lives, dies in one hit and he can only fire one shot on the screen at a time. Oddly for a shooter, this game does not have a score system whatsoever and the levels progress with the only warning being that the screen fades out after the boss. The ending is a picture of your character and (presumably) the damsel in distress you were rescuing, followed by a credits screen which has some of the names that appear in other mega soft games. This game was later hacked in 1995 to produce aladdin iii, which is identical apart from the title screen which removes the company name and logo, as well as decreasing protagonist's minimal speed. This one appears on several multicarts. It is also unrelated to the hummer team pirate.

Arkanoid (Usa)

Arkanoid (Usa)

The original breakout concept involves controlling a bat at the bottom of the screen and using it to catch and direct a ball so as to hit all the bricks which are arranged at the top of the screen. It was unpopular for over a decade, before taito revived it with some new ideas in this arcade game. The game's plot redefines the bat as a vaus spaceship, the ball as an energy bolt, and the bricks form a mysterious wall stopping the ship from progressing to safety. By the mid-80s, power-ups were popular in most types of arcade games, and arkanoid features them. They are caught by positioning the bat below them as they fall (meaning that you risk missing the ball if you go for them at the wrong time). The power-ups include lasers (which are mounted to each side of the ship and allow you to shoot out the blocks), a catching device (so as to be able to fire the ball off at a different angle every time you hit it) and one that slows the ball. . . . Sorry, bolt. . . . Down. Needless to say, the game inspired tonnes of clones, few of which added anything else.

Rufus returns from the future with a warning that someone has warped the time continuum by kidnapping historical figures and stranding them in the wrong time period (. . . Sooo, basically what bill and ted did in the first film?) it's up to the boys to sort out the mess. The player controls either bill or ted, who have split up to tackle the quest (allowing each to leave items to assist the other). Each "mission" begins by consulting a phone book of historical figures, and spotting the page whose number has changed (a second number, flashing in red). The player dials that number, and guides the phone booth through the circuits of time. Rufus could only lend a payphone, so players will need to plot out the shortest path to their destination, while avoiding any hazards. Each change in direction costs one coin. Once in the target time period, the player controls bill or ted through an isometric view as they search for the displaced historical figure. The player must stick to a defined path to avoid falling, and must be cautious of the locals. Some will offer clues or helpful items, while others demand a coin if bumped into. Other locals will actively chase bill and ted and throw them in jail, where they must use a skeleton key (if they have one) to escape. Players can find and collect coins for the phone booth, keys for the jail, and distractions (like pudding or tape players) to throw off any pursuers. The player must also locate an item of "historical bait," appropriate to the target, to get them to follow. Once the historical dude has been baited and bagged, the player switches to the other member of the titular duo to rescue a new historical celebrity. The process repeats until time is corrected.

Cobra Triangle (Usa)

Cobra Triangle (Usa)

Cobra triangle is a single-player boat-racing game that lets you do more than race. It borrows the power-up system from the shoot 'em up genre but keeps the emphasis more on maneuvering than shooting. Since you have a health meter with a dozen bars in it, it's not that important to dodge bullets unless your health is really low, but you should try not to run into too many walls. In order to get very far you need to make use of your power-ups which are turbo for better acceleration; fire for increased firepower; speed for increased top-speed; missile for firing missiles as well as bullets; and force which makes you fire tons of missiles and also makes you invincible for a limited time. You get roughly one minute to complete each level. Speaking of which, there are 7 types of levels each with a different objective:

(1) race to the finish - shoot other boats along the way to the finish line and avoid enemies like turrets and sharks. Some boats tow power-up pods behind them that you can collect after you shoot them. It doesn't matter when you finish, and you aren't told if you get 1st or 2nd or 3rd place. . . It seems that the other boats are only there to get in your way. Watch for the fork in the river; choosing alternate paths takes you to the same levels of the game but in a different order. (2) collect the pods - simply race in a straight path while running over ramps to collect pods and 1up's in the air. You go on to the next level when time runs out. (3) dispose of mines - there is a small square in the water with mines in it. You actually have to collect the mines and tow them to another square to make them explode. Of course, there is an invincible enemy boat that tries to steal them back from you and some guys that shoot at you. It takes awhile since you can only tow them one at a time. (4) fry the monster - the 'boss' levels. You fight a sea-serpent, a crab, a shark, etc. He has his own health display right above yours, but it tends to deplete slower. (bonus) shoot the targets - after every boss level you go to an auto-scrolling level where you are rewarded with a 1up prize if you manage to shoot all the targets along the shore without missing any. (5) guard the people - there's a large square filled with 8 helpless swimmers, and for some reason they're all about to be kidnapped. Other boats race into the square and tow them away unless you destroy their ships before they get away. You can tow the people back into the square-if you have time-while avoiding the spaceships that fire stunning missiles at you. If you have at least one swimmer left when the timer runs out then you pass. (6) reach the finish - race in a straight course with plenty of obstacles but no other boats. You drive upstream while the current drags a horde of logs and whirlpools in your direction to stop you. Occasionally some planes fly by and shoot at you. If you happen to die in this or any other level, you simply reappear on the spot as long as you have an extra life. A continue puts you back at the beginning of the level you were on. (7) jump the waterfall - a level that consists of a series of moving ramps you must use to jump over huge pits. Moving currents, whirlpools, and the violation of several laws of physics makes this more difficult than it sounds. The entire game consists of repeating these types of levels for a grand total of 25 stages. The later stages are much more difficult than the first. They're filled with additional obstacles like icebergs, more mines, more enemies, and longer courses. There are even speed-ramps that let you take small short-cuts in later racing levels.

It is not a strictly historical wargame in which battles of the past are recreated using real-world geography. Instead, the two opposing sides (blue vs. Red) fight it out across 16 imaginary scenarios with armies modeled on nato and warsaw pact forces of the late 1980s. The game alternates between two modes of play: a strategic/operational scale, in which players move their units around the hex map; and a tactical combat module for resolving unit-to-unit combats. In the tactical mode, human players have the choice of either issuing orders themselves or using the "auto" mode which delegates command to the ai. Splash graphics and text messages convey battle results. By capturing towns and winning battles, the player gains "fame" points that can be used to purchase more and better military hardware. Every scenario ends only when the same, single victory condition is achieved by one of the two sides: destroy the opposing side's main battle tank unit in combat. Winning any one of the first 15 scenarios yields a letter of the alphabet; together, the letters spell out the password that must be entered in order to play the final scenario.

Cosmostation noah, located in spiral galaxy ix, is under siege by molok wardrivers. Now it's time for the pilot of the rh119 to fend off the molok wardrivers and save the cosmostation.

Cosmo police galivan puts the player in control of a human being armed with a beam blade, which is only able to attack monsters in close proximity. As the game continues, the player character can use different powers - some ranged - to take out enemies and progress further. Eventually, the player will have the option of becoming a metal-armored officer with considerably more fire-power, though this power-up state will vanish if too much damage is taken. The player character will also level-up after destroying so many enemies, improving their health and "cosmo points" - a stat similar to mana that is used to power the player character's special attacks. The game's world is a network of caves that the player can explore for necessary items and bonus areas. The nes version expands this aspect, providing some metroidvania-esque exploration. Some impediments are in place to restrict further exploration until the right item is found, as well.

Crackout (Usa) (Proto)

Crackout (Usa) (Proto)

In the year 30xx, the mankind has exhausted all the metal resources on the earth, so they had to travel into space in order to find more. They find a planet high in minerals, and they name it selim. But soon they discover that there is someone watching, spying on them; it's some kind of alien race. These aliens find a hole in the humans' main computer and get inside it. The computer, programmed to self-destruct in case of a failure, starts its countdown. There is only one way to avoid self-destruction, which is entering a 14 digit code into the machine; but these digits are hidden in the walls of the corridors in the complex. Your mission is to find these letters and avoid self-destruction, aboard the "red warrior", and using your only weapon, an energy ball. Crackout is an arkanoid clone for the nes, but it's probably one of the most singular clones. You'll have to destroy all blocks but also the walls surrounding them, as the 14 letters are spread inside them, apart from killing the alien bosses here and there. In your way, you will find a bizarre mixture of enemies, from alien forms to parts of the body (eyes, lips, skulls. . . ), who will make your game tougher by changing the direction of your ball; but also happier by dropping a sweet variety of power-ups such as the cherries (extra life), the clock (the enemies freeze), a rocket (to throw into the blocks), a fire device (the ball fires missiles), a parachute (slows the ball) an extra ball, or the weirdest of them all, the so-called konami man, who will take you to a secret parallel complex with different (and harder) levels.

Crisis Force (Japan) (T)

The year is 199x and a robot army has invaded tokyo city. A boy and a girl (who remain unnamed) board their ships to fight off the threat. This is a vertical scrolling shoot-em-up game viewed from overhead, where the player pilots a fighter ship through seven levels of intense shooting action. Each level hurls enemies and bullets at the player's ship, ending with a boss fight, except for one which instead is a boss rush level. The game allows for two players to play at the same time. The player has a choice of two weapons; bullets or lasers. Weapons can be changed by picking up gems of different colors. Picking up the same color as you already have allows you to upgrade your current weapon a few times. The player's ship can change form and with it the way that the weapons work. This allows the player to pick the best weapon strategy for each situation. The player also has a limited amount of bombs that are useful to get out of tricky situations. When a weapon is upgraded it also acts as a shield so the ship can take an enemy bullet without dying. This will however degrade the weapon down to the first level again. There are also pickups that alter the ship's speed and a special gem that, if five of them are collected, temporarily transforms the ship into an invincible super ship. Crisis force was only released in japan.

Cyber Stadium Series - Base Wars (Usa)

Cyber Stadium Series - Base Wars (Usa)

In the 24th century, the game of baseball is very different. Tired of paying huge players salaries, the team owners got together one weekend and came up with a bold new idea, robots. Indeed they renamed their league the cyber league and stocked it with four robot types; cyborg, tank, floater or motorcycle, to play. On an orbital stadium in space, these robots all play a slightly different variation of the baseball rules. Hitting the ball and catching pop-flys and making home runs are all the same, but when the call of a play is in dispute, there are no base referees; the robots engage in a one-on-one battle using any weaponry they're carrying. Of course to make things interesting, weaponry (and other robot parts and equipment) can only be purchased with team funds during a tournament game, and team funds can only be obtained by wins. Thus the series closer is always sure to be a sold out game.

Cyberball (Usa)

Cyberball (Usa)

After american football players started cheating by using bionic parts, the game was forced to change its rules. By 2022, the game was played not by humans, but two teams of seven robots.

After this it will explode and possession will be swapped. This is prevented when you cross the 50-yard line, lose possession or score a touchdown, in which cases it resets to 'cool'. Field goals and punts are not featured - the only kick is the initial kick-off you receive. Control passes from the quarterback (thrower) to the intended catcher as soon as a pass is released. The two-player game is co-operative - on offense one player passes and the other receives

Any missed movements are recorded on a mistake counter and 10 missed movements will fail the level. The routines (a set of repeated movements) start slow and simple with a bit of no-penalty practise time however as the player gets better the routines get more complex with less practices time. Each level has a set number of routines that increase with each level from 4 at the start to a total of 32 on the final level (level 7). At the successful completion of each level the player will get a pass stamp which they can enter later to skip that level. The second mode is mini-games called pad antics that includes tune up, mat melodies, and ditto.

The third mode is aerobics studios.

They get a turbo to use sparingly, which can also be recharged in the pits if they have bought more. After each race the player will get money (slightly more for a higher finish), which can be spent on upgrades such as improved power, brakes or more turbos.

Days Of Thunder (Usa)

Tom cruise's film brought nascar racing to the masses, and mindscape did the same for games players with this license.

Once the rivets are removed from the final level, donkey kong falls, and the two lovers are reunited. From there, the levels start over at a higher difficulty. Along the way, mario must dodge a constant stream of barrels, "living" fireballs, and spring-weights. Although not as powerful as in other future games, mario can find a hammer which allows him to destroy the barrels and fireballs for a limited amount of time. Additionally, mario can also find pauline's hat, purse and umbrella for additional bonus points. Donkey kong is also notable for being one of the first complete narratives in video game form, told through simplistic cut scenes that advance the story.

These insects, as well as caterpillars which creep down nearby vines are intent on destroying the flowers below stanley. Donkey kong will also send down projectiles himself in an attempt to stop stanley's attacks. Stanley must jump between the levels and use his bugspray to repel the insects, and send donkey kong into the next area of the greenhouse. Once stanley pushes donkey kong high enough, a can of super bugspray will become available, allowing a larger shooting radius, and is able to send donkey kong up the vines faster.

Now, dragonlord stole the ball of light, and your mission is to recover it and to restore peace in the world. In dragon warrior, you move your character around in a top-down world. In cities and palaces you can talk to people, rest in inns and buy stuff in shops. There's a variety of weapons, equipment and armor to buy. When wandering around in the wilderness, you occasionally encounter enemies, and fight them from 1st person perspective. Combat is turn based: you select menu options while fighting - you can attack with your weapon, cast a spell (using up some of your magic energy), use and item or try to run. Killing monsters gives you experience, and, as is typical for rpgs, you level up and improve your stats when you gain enough experience. Like in later rpgs, you have limited hit points, lose them when you are attacked by enemies, and die when you run out of them. When your character dies in a battle, he is automatically restored in a nearby town.

Your father went out to fight the evil baramos, who is responsible for the appearance of monsters in your region, and never returned. You are sent by the king on a quest to continue your father's brave deeds and to defeat baramos. Dragon warrior iii is a top-down role-playing game where you travel around the overworld, caves, castles, cities and other locations while battling random encounters, buying equipment, and talking to people. You and your party members receive experience when they beat up monsters and level up with enough experience, increasing their stats.

You begin with control of just the main character but can quickly recruit three more members to your party. During the game you can choose to drop your current characters and recruit others at any time. The recruitable characters are divided into six classes: soldier, fighter, merchant, goof-off, pilgrim and wizard. The game has a unique job system, giving you the ability to switch your hired characters' classes after they have achieved at least level 20 in their base class. Characters can switch to the other beginning classes, as well as the sage class, which is not available at the beginning. When a character switches classes, they lose all earned experience points, and half of their stats, but retain all of the abilities of the previous class. In this way, you can create powerful combination characters that are able to cast spells and fight effectively.

Gameplay instantly reminds of the bard's tale series. Step-by-step first person 3d, opponents materialize out of the air. The combat system is turn based.

Elevator Action (Usa)

Elevator Action (Usa)

You are agent 17 (codename: "otto"). Your mission is to secure all top secret documents from a security building and escape in the getaway car, located in the basement of the building. Enemies spies are scattered throughout the 30-floor building and they have only one mission: execute agent 17 at all costs. There are several ways in which agent 17 can kill them:

1. Shooting them with his gun. 2. Kicking them by jumping onto them. 3. Shooting a light on the ceiling while in an elevator, dropping the light onto one of them. 4. Crushing them with an elevator. Whenever a light has been dropped, the hallways will be dark for a short period of time, making the enemy spies harder to see. The same holds true for hallways that are already dark. While otto is in an elevator, he will have complete control of it by moving up or down. Agent 17 can still get killed if he's already in an elevator if a bullet's trajectory is aimed at it. . When otto is not in an elevator, it will move from floor to floor automatically, even when enemy spies are in it. Otto is able to leap over the elevator gaps, but he must be as close to the edge as possible without falling off in order to make the jump safely. If there is an elevator cable in the way, however, it will block him, causing him to fall. Just because the game is called elevator action doesn't mean that elevators are the only means of travel. There are also escalators which you can ride up or down, useful if you want to avoid gunfire and don't have time to jump. Otto must go into the rooms with red doors to collect the top secret documents. If he tries to get to his car without getting all the documents, he cannot escape and must go back and collect the remaining documents. Once he has all the documents and drives away, he then proceeds to the next building. If otto takes too much time to collect the documents, the alarm will go off, and he will have trouble controlling the elevators, which will take time to react. Bad guys will be especially aggressive. The alarm doesn't go off when otto loses a life, it only resets after finishing a building. Besides ducking, bad guys may also drop themselves and lay flat on the floor. It's virtually impossible for otto to shoot bad guys when they do this. Also, otto cannot duck when in an elevator.

Eliminator Boat Duel (Usa)

Eliminator Boat Duel (Usa)

Eliminator boat duel is a ruthless one on one boat racing game that can either be played against the computer or a human opponent. The races take place in such settings as open water, the bayou, and even industrial water districts. Each boat race consists of several sections. First, there is the starting line -- where you can expect a $2000 fine for a false start -- which begins with a brief side-scrolling race with split-screen background scrolling, a common characteristic of later nes titles. The primary sections of the races are a mixture of top-down racing and 3rd-person racing from a perspective behind the boats. The top-down sections are the most involved with numerous threats to avoid such as alligators, sharks, and whirlpools that will turn you the wrong way. There are also ramps to jump off of, people in need of rescue, nitro speed boost powerups, and raw cash bonuses to collect. The 3rd person segments have less detail and distraction but move much quicker as the 2 players vie to stay within the flags, collect speed boosts, and hit the occasional ramp. Speed boosts are collected along the way and can be used at the player's discretion to gain a much-needed edge at any point during the race. A race finishes back in the side-scrolling view. If the boats come through too close together, the bikini models on the sidelines act confused and request a slo-mo replay, which the game subsequently provides. Prize money is then awarded with which the players may use to repair and upgrade their boats with faster engines, tougher hulls, and better steering.

Elysion, though a fairly traditional 8-bit jrpg in many respects (the first thing the player does is talk to the local king for exposition, for example), draws its influences from a lot of very different games within the rpg family: it superficially resembles the first dragon quest, it allows the player to select between multiple protagonists when starting the game as is the case in final fantasy, the combat system is real-time combat without screen transitions such as something like hydlide or ys and the enemies have an odd habit of only moving when the player does, such is the case in many strategic roguelike dungeon crawlers like the mystery dungeon series. The goal of the game is to defeat the evil demon baal. However, the king first tests the player character by having them enter the dungeon beneath the castle and find a group of important quest objects. After completing this large dungeon, the protagonist officially becomes the hero of god and can go defeat baal by exploring the rest of the continent for some necessary magical scrolls and, eventually, special god-like equipment. "elysion" refers to the elysian fields, an ancient roman underworld for honorable souls that died in battle.

Family Circuit (Japan) (T)

Family circuit is a racing game for nintendo's family computer (known to some as the nes), hence the name. Unlike other nintendo racing games at the time, it has many realistic traits, removing itself from the main crop of more arcade oriented titles. The car can be customized to your heart's content, with different tires, wings and suspension and detailed engine settings for both turbo and torque. Four racing modes are available:

1. Free run: run any way you want around the track, getting to know both the curves and straights as well as the settings of your car. 2. Sprint race: race a season in four classes – novice, b class, a class and super a – around well-known (fuji, suzuka) and less well-known tracks (family park, namcot-ring), competing for the first place. 3. Endurance race: run around and around a track to see who gives up last. 4. Spectator mode: not a real racing mode, but allows you to follow any car in any class around any track. As you bump into things or push the car too far, you must pit in, where you will be given statistics for each part of the car and may choose to fix it. Some of this realism is however forfeited by the fact that cars can never collide. Racing straight through an opponent with both cars undamaged is perfectly possible.

Only you can restore peace to the land by conquering the evil one, who lives in the evil place. There are many places you must visit during your quest including the medieval town, where you begin, country villages, fortresses, caves, and gloomy bogs - each with its own ambiance and musical score. You will be talking with the villagers, collecting gold to buy weapons, armor and other objects, jumping over obstacles and using items. Attack zombies, dwarves, giant snakes, wyverns, evil gnomes, or one-eyed one-footed things with a large collection of swords and daggers or zap them with a magic spell. As areas are completed by defeating enemies, your character rises up in “levels” and achieves a new “rank” which is tied directly to the restore password (called a “mantra” in the game). The higher your “rank”, the more gold you start out with. Saving a game can only be done in a shrine or temple with a priest.

Final Fantasy (Usa)

Final Fantasy (Usa)

The world is veiled in darkness. Winds don't blow, the seas are stormy, and the earth rots. All people can hope for is that the ancient prophecy will be finally fulfilled. "when the world is veiled in darkness, four warriors will come. . . " and indeed, they come - the four characters you have previously chosen. Their first quest is to free a princess from the evil garland, and then the real journey begins. . . Final fantasy is played with an adventuring party rather than with a single character. Before the game starts, the player chooses four characters from six different classes: fighter, thief, black belt, white mage, red mage, and black mage. Which four classes the player chooses for his characters is entirely up to him. He also gives the characters names. In the game, the party walks around in a top-down world, visits cities, caves, palaces and other places to buy equipment, rest and get hints and new quests, and fights baddies when they are encountered. Final fantasy uses a turn-based combat system; the atb (active-time battle) system from the later installments is not used. In battle, the player gives each character in order a command (attack a particular enemy, cast a spell, use an item, or try to run. ) then the characters and the enemies act in a random order. Attacked enemies and party members lose hit points, dying when they reach zero hp. When all the enemies are defeated, living party members receive experience, eventually gaining a level and improving their stats when enough experience is accumulated. Slain party members can be revived in towns for a price. Spells are bought in cities in special shops. The spells are divided into two categories - white magic and black magic. White mages can only use white magic, black mages can only use black magic, and red mages can use both. Casting spells in battle uses up magic points, which, like hit points, can be restored by resting in inns.

Fleet Commander (Japan) (T)

Fleet Commander (Japan) (T)

Fleet commander is a strategy game developed and published by ascii entertainment for the famicom in 1988. It is the first naval battle game ever released for the system. While it supposedly depicts a battle between two fictional countries, the game is largely recognized to be a recreation of one of the crucial naval battles that occurred between japan and the united states near the end of world war ii. Players control a japanese fleet of heavy cruisers, battleships, submarines and aircraft carriers. A couple of things set this game apart from typical famicom games. First, in addition to the cartridge and the manual, the game also came packaged with a large map and plastic models which represented ships and airplanes. The game never shows the entire state of the water, so it is up to the player to use the information that he or she has to update the representation of battle on the map using the plastic models. Second, no background music is heard while playing this game. Finally, this game makes use of a device known as the "turbo file," which was manufactured and sold by ascii as well. This device was a hardware add-on for the famicom which was used to save game progress. It was compatible with a number of other titles.

Galaxy 5000 (Usa)

Galaxy 5000 is an isometric-perspective space racing game where 4 spaceships compete head to head in outer space races. 1 or 2 human players can compete in the races; the rest of the ships are controlled by the computer. The ships complete several laps around each course and have limited firing capacity to throw their opponents off balance. The ships can also jump. In fact, the ships can jump right off the edge of the course and drop down (in space). If the player does not complete a course in good time, the entire race track will disintegrate and leave the ship to fall down (and apparently splash into some water below). A notable item about this game is its use of squeaky, comical, digitized voices for exclamations when colliding with another player ("hey!", "excuse me!", "watch it!"). There are also 2 completely different control schemes that a player can adopt for cruising around the course. The first scheme rotates and drives the ship in the direction that the control pad is being pressed. The second scheme uses left and right to rotate the ship and up to thrust in the direction the nose is pointing.

Gegege No Kitarou 2 - Youkai Gundan No Chousen (Japan) (T)

Gegege No Kitarou 2 - Youkai Gundan No Chousen (Japan) (T)

Gegege no kitarou 2: youkai gundan no chousen (spooky kitaro 2: kitaro vs. Yokai army) is a rpg game based on a manga and anime from japan about a boy who is a youkai, a class of spirit-monster to which all of the main characters belong. The main character, kitarou, is the last living member of a ghost tribe. He is missing his left eye, but his hair usually covers the empty socket. He fights for peace between humans and yåkai, which generally involves protecting the former from the wiles of the latter. While the game follows the release of gegege no kitarou: youkai daimakyou (released in the u. S as ninja kid), it is not a direct sequel to the original game, which is an action side-scroller. Gegege no kitarou 2 plays very much like a simplified traditional rpg. Fights are turn-based, where the player must input his command, and then watch the sequence of event play out until the round is over and the next round begins. However, even though it is simplified, it is actually a rather difficult and challenging game. In the very beginning of the game, kitarou struggles to survive more than two fights against monsters before needing to return home and rest until he reaches level 2. A majority of the enemies only provide experience points in the single digits until much later in the game, although to compensate, the amount of experience needed to reach each level is low by comparison as well. Kitarou maxes out at level 10 when he reaches 999 experience points. The map of the game's overworld is a fairly faithful representation of japan, along with part of korea and a small unidentified island. Kitarou must explore the island nation to rescue his girlfriend and the rest of the world from the onslaught of evil youkai that threaten to take over the world of the living. He must locate several homes, castles, and cave entrances to make his way through japan, which suffers from spirit storms that prevent him from exploring new regions on the island until some task has been completed first.

The standard punch is a cross, but by holding the up-key pressed, jabs can also be thrown. By avoiding punches and hitting them, a superpunch often becomes available, inflicting much more damage. A fight consists of a maximum of three rounds of three minutes each. When a boxer is knocked down four times, the match is over (technical knock-out). The same happens when a boxer goes down three times in a single round (regular knock-out). When down, players need to press both punch buttons in rapid succession to get back to their feet. The screen shows an energy meter drained when punches are received. After being knocked down and during intermissions, some energy is restored. All versions, except for the game boy, can be played with two players. A password system is used to save the progress.

Ghostbusters (Usa)

Ghostbusters (Usa)

Based on the movie of the same name, the ghostbusters are the ones to call who will "bust" any ghost hauntings. It does this through the use of nuclear accelerated "proton packs" and traps, whereby the ghosts can be captured and transferred to a secure storage facility. However new york city has suddenly become a very haunted place, and the number of ghosts has suddenly increased. The ghostbusters must reduce the paranormal (pk) level in the city, representing ghost power, before the temple of zuul awakens and ressurects an evil goddess, gozer. Ghostbusters is an action game that combines an overhead view and a side-view. From ghostbusters hq, the player must monitor the map of new york city for "ghost alarms" as well as casual spirits, and plot a route to the alarmed area. The player then controls the ghostbuster vehicle as it drives through traffic. Here, the player is able to capture casual ghosts on the way if they are en route. Once at the location, the game switches to a side-view. Two of the ghostbusters will take position and activate their proton beams and toss a trap to the ground. The player will attempt to maneuver the ghost(s) over the placed trap. Once activated, the trap attempts to capture any ghosts directly above it. Successful capture will earn the player money, which can then be used to purchase new ghostbusters vehicles and new modifications for the vehicle. Unsuccessful capture will see the ghost fly away. As the game progresses, the pk energy of the city increases. Ghostbusters must keep it under critical levels by being constantly successful at ghost captures. Eventually the temple of zuul will activate, and if the pk levels are still manageable, the ghostbusters can venture there for a final showdown with gozer.

Grand Master (Japan) (T)

Grand Master (Japan) (T)

Grand master is an action rpg, featuring a cool intro, neat music, and most importantly: a hero with a sword so high you can't get over it, so low you can't get under it, and so wide you can't get around it. The game itself plays from a top-down perspective, a bit like the legend of zelda, but with some extra rpg elements added in. It features a basic leveling system that maxes out at 10 and basic hp and mp stats that increase by 10 each level up until they reach 99. The stages are also in the same vein as the legend of zelda in regards to the dungeons, albeit in a much simpler form. Instead of an overworld, you instead pick from five stages on a world map and each stage follows the same basic formula that consists of finding the key to open the door to the boss. Each stage contains various enemies that respawn, the occasional warp point, and a handful of chests that contain a new weapon, accessory and healing items. The final stage also follows the same pattern, but it's about five stages combined into one and borders on torture/redundancy with a series of mazes and long passageways that take forever to pass. It is at odds with the first five stages. The game makes use of a branching path system that's based on the order in which you clear all the stages. If certain events are not triggered, you will get a bad ending. The optimal order is as follows:castle, ice temple, cave, pyramid, tower. If you enter the tower before the cave level, you will
get the bad ending. If you enter the pyramid before the cave level, you will get an alternate story branch.

Hello Kitty World (Japan) (T)

Hello Kitty World (Japan) (T)

The little kitten kitty, her kitten friend mimi and their bear friend tippy love playing with balloons. One day, tippy has inflated a whole bunch of balloons when suddenly a strong wind blows. Tippy is blown away! the only way for kitty and mimi to find their friend again is to pick some balloons and fly to her rescue. Hello kitty world is quite similar to balloon kid – a forced side-scrolling platform adventure where you control a character floating around with a balloon in the hand. Kitty (or mimi) starts out on each level with two balloons, and by pushing the a button, she moves upward before sinking again if the button is not pushed again. When kitty comes in contact with an enemy, she will just rebound, but she will fall to the ground if both balloons are hit. By pushing the b button, kitty can also choose to let go in order to walk around like a normal platform character. This is necessary in order to reach power-ups and hidden areas. Since the scrolling is forced, it is easy to go get stuck and pushed off the screen. Throughout the levels, tippy has dropped balloons that can be picked up for points. If twenty balloons are picked up in succession, they turn into double balloons worth more points. Enemies come both in the airbourne and ground-based varieties, along with some fish that can surprisingly jump out of the water. Some enemies can only fly by holding balloons, and just like in balloon fight, these can be disposed of by touching their balloons.

Once momotaru has collected a key from a pirate ship, he must then sail around the islands in search of the correct dock gate which the key corresponds to. Once there, the player embarks on an exploration of the island to find items, defeat a boss, and collect treasures before heading off in search of another island key.

Immortal, The (Usa)

Immortal, The (Usa)

The immortal is an isometric action-adventure game. Your old mentor mordamir has disappeared. Probably kidnapped. You're not too sure where he might be, but a dungeon is always a good place to look, so you seek out the nearest one and plunge into its depths. Beware: 8 levels of
isometric death await. The immortal is the prototype of a trial-and-error game. Progress is made by encountering a hazard, dying, solving the problem, encountering the next hazard. To solve a level, you have to know its traps and their patterns by heart. As frustrating as this may sound (it is), the immortal quite cleverly balances annoyance with curiosity and graphical rewards. In short: you want to see what challenge lies in the next room. The puzzles range from simple avoidance of traps to the correct use of items; you collect objects in an inventory. Every now and then, the immortal surprises with a special challenge. For example, you've got to ride a magic carpet through a hallway full of fire traps, or ride a barrel on an underground river. The dungeon isn't empty: some friedlies may have valuable information or trade items, the nasty sort of guys will attack. Combat is fought man-to-man on a special screen. Your adversary indicates his next attack a few seconds before he executes it, so you've got time to react appropriately. You can dodge to the left or the right, as well as attack from these two directions. There is no save option in the game, of course, but you may restart each level as often as you like. Levels can be skipped by entering passwords.

At the same time, you receive a telegram from marcus saying that the cross of coronado is in portugal on a ship called coronado, and that he'll meet indy there.

In the entire game you'll be prompted with these choices, each one leading to different stages throughout the game. Each stage presents different game genres. For example, in venice you find a scrambled picture of the grail, and you have to try to put it back together, just like you'd do with the pieces of a puzzle. Besides, in the platform stages, indy has plenty of movements, as he can punch, kick, walk, run, jump and use his whip.

Jeopardy! (Usa) (Rev A)

Jeopardy! (Usa) (Rev A)

Gametek's faithful nes recreation of the long-running international quiz show. Up to three contestants can play at once, with gaps optionally filled in by computer ai. If three human players are engaged, then player 1 and 2 share the first controller, with the second controller going to player 3. For the first two rounds, six categories with five questions each are randomly selected by the computer to populate the game board. The contestant who answered the last question correctly gets to pick the category and a dollar value, with harder questions being worth more money. Players have ten seconds from the time a question appears to "ring in" with the appropriate controller button and answer. Answers are built by using the controller to navigate around a grid of letters and "type" out the correct answer. Spaces and punctuation are ignored, but spelling and grammar generally must match the expected answer exactly. The contestant has 30 seconds to provide the answer before "time is up" and the other players have the opportunity to ring in. Final jeopardy consists of one category, which players bet their current winnings on being able to answer. A single question from that category is asked after the hidden bets have been placed. Again, each player has 30 seconds to provide their answer while the other players are instructed to look away. At the end, scores are tallied and the winner declared. Categories in this edition draw from general knowledge and do not follow a specific theme (like the sports or star wars editions). Each category will always consist of the same five questions, and the game draws on a limited number of categories. Repeats will appear after a handful of sessions played. Some questions "current" for 1987 will also be less obvious decades later, and more difficult than intended.

While bird feels right home at the three-point contest, where five racks with five balls each are placed around the three-point arc and the player must pick each ball and throw in the the best timing possible to get as many points as possible during the 60 second window, only jordan has the air-time to perform on the slam dunk contest, where the player has a number of dunks at his disposal, each requiring different timing to get the best score from all three attempts from the judges, and win the competition. While they are two completely different players, they can still go one-on-one on a half-court match, played to points or with a time duration.

Kaijuu Monogatari (Japan) (T)

Kaijuu Monogatari (Japan) (T)

Kaijuu monogatari ("shell creature story") is an 8-bit rpg for the nes that more than superficially resembles enix's dragon quest. As with many rpg contemporaries for the system, it borrows the basic premise (talk to the king, discover what to do next, fight some evil force) and the turn-based tactical combat and gradual character development of its major influence, but also much of its aesthetic: the box art has some akira toriyama-inspired artwork and the protagonist wears a familiar suit of blue armor. Kaijuu monogatari's subtitle - shell saurs story - is a localization of its japanese name. The plot, in greater detail, concerns a race of peaceful shell creatures that have four elemental warriors that united to fight the villainous fat badger but were separated in the final struggle. The player needs to unite the four by exploring the world and discovering the locations of the other three warriors, then regrouping for another attack. A unique twist, though one that would also become a feature in dragon quest iv (thus coming full circle innovation-wise), is that the player is able to assume any of one these four heroes at any point by selecting a menu option, though each one begins at level 1 and is very weak. In order for the party to be strong enough to meet up, each must be independently raised to a sufficiently high level. The game would eventually spawn its own franchise with sequels and spin-offs being released for the super famicom and game boy in japan.

Kaiketsu yanchamaru 3 is the final sequel to kid niki and is a significant departure from the first two games. Not only does the game feature full four-way scrolling and large maps to explore, but yanchamaru himself sports a completely new look and numerous new abilities.

Taking a cue from mega man, he also now has the ability to slide through narrow spaces and underneath dangerous spikes. Each stage contains numerous keys and locked doors. Any key will open any door, and it is possible to complete a stage without even finding all the keys and doors. The final door in each stage leads to the boss room. After clearing each stage, your performance is tallied, and depending on what you did, bonuses such as points or lives are given.

One day, a mysterious theme park called karakuri land appeared in edo. In it were various mechanical attractions, built around different themes. Many people went to visit, and the park was very popular. The princess asked yanchamaru if he would like to go with her, but since he was busy with his training, she went by herself. However, she didn't come back, and so yanchamaru must make his way through the oddly-aggressive attractions to find and rescue the princess!

Kamen No Ninja - Hanamaru (Japan) (T)

Kamen No Ninja - Hanamaru (Japan) (T)

Kamen no ninja hanamaru is a side-scrolling platform game by capcom. Hanamaru, a ninja boy in training, is sent on a mission to investigate bizarre happenings and disappearances. In a local theme park called leisure island, children have been mysteriously disappearing and these disappearances are being attributed to a ruthless rival gang of ninjas. Equipped with his red mask and a mechanical hawk, it is up to the brave hanamaru to journey throughout the park's fourteen areas and to rescue the captive children. The young ninja can run, jump or allow his hawk companion to attack enemies at long range. He can also collect special scrolls to increase his magic powers and cast various spells (press down and b to activate them) - they range from lightning attack (kills all enemies on screen), ground shake (kills all enemies on the ground), fire hawk (unleashes the hawk super dive attack) and super jump (increases jumping speed for a short amount of time). Various special items are also available throughout the game, such as extra lives, invincibility and battle cards. Battle cards are a very important part of the gameplay - every now and then, hanamaru encounters a boss that he must fight in a really unusual way (and apparently loosely based on the traditional japanese disciplines of ninjutsu). Boss battles are round based, and the player must pick a card with a higher face value than his opponent, and the difference represents how much damage the player (or the boss) takes. Thankfully, hanamaru can collect special battle cards along the way - some can double or triple the face value of a card, whereas others prevent the boss from being able to attack for a round, or help hanamaru regain some life. Although most of the game offers traditional side scrolling platformer action, several levels try out very different gameplay styles (hanamaru can ride a skateboard in some stages, or fly through the air with the help of his hawk companion).

Upon gaining all the sections of the key sara can open the door to the castle and enter the final series of mazes, however, she cannot win if she has not collected all of the coins.

Legend Of Zelda, The (Usa) (Rev A)

In one of the darkest times in the kingdom of hyrule, a young, pointy-eared boy named link takes on an epic quest to restore the fragmented triforce of wisdom and save the princess zelda from the clutches of the evil, power-hungry ganon. The legend of zelda for the nes marks the first action-adventure title of the popular nintendo series. Players must make their way through the various forests, graveyards, plains, and deserts of the overworld to find the secret entrances of the eight dungeons in an attempt to piece together the broken triforce. Once all pieces are joined, link will be able to gain entry to death mountain, home of ganon, and prison of princess zelda. The game is drawn in a top-down perspective. Link begins his quest in the overworld, which features forests, mountains and lakes and is divided into several screens. Link can explore the overworld freely, though when he enters a screen, he will encounter several enemies. He can attack them with his sword. If link is at full health, he can toss his sword to attack enemies from afar, but when he is hurt, even slightly, he can only fight in melee range. Link's health is represented by hearts; initially he can have a maximum of three hearts, but as he progresses in the game, he will find heart containers that increase his maximum health. The enemies are varied - some attack from up close, some shoot projectiles. When killed, they often leave behind an item - a heart to restore energy, rupees that function as money (and can be used to buy stuff in various shops in the overworld), or bombs which can be picked up and set down to attack enemies or destroy some walls. When enemies are killed, they stay dead and will not re-appear once the screen is entered again. There are other items to find in the game; some function as weapons, while others are used to solve puzzles. To find the triforce pieces, link must explore dungeons. Once he finds an entrance to the dungeon and goes in, he must explore the rooms, fight enemies and collect keys until he finds the boss monster he must defeat. He will then be able to pick up a triforce piece. Once he does so, however, all the monsters in the overworld come back to life. If link dies on his quest, he can continue it; he will go back to his start position in the overworld, but with the items he managed to collect so far. When link finishes his quest, the pl;ayer can choose to play the "2nd quest", which is essentially a harder version of the game. The legend of zelda is known for several factors that were revolutionary at the time: a full world that could be freely explored, power-ups that would permanently enhance your character's abilities, and a battery back-up save feature that allowed players to retain their progress instead of having to start over. The gameplay balanced out frequent action sequences with discovery, secrets, and exploration.

The danger stage requires you to face a gauntlet of enemies, while the lucky stage is full of powerups, game continues, and other bonuses.

Lei dian huang bi ka qiu chuan shuo (also known as pokémon yellow) is a pirated game for the nes made by shenzhen nanjing. It's generally regarded as being of higher quality compared to shenzhen nanjing's other games. This game is basically a port of pokémon firered/leafgreen version and pokémon yellow version mixed together with some changes to it. It appears to be ported with firered & leafgreen in mind (all the attacks, the tm/hm list, and the types (magnemite and magneton are electric/steel and dark moves exist) although almost all the sevii islands weren't kept) but reworked to match yellow's storyline. However, the intro involving catching pikachu is missing and pikachu just acts like any normal pokémon. The overworld graphics primarily use firered & leafgreen graphics with some graphics from pokémon ruby/sapphire version and the game boy port of harvest moon as well. The in-battle graphics use the firered & leafgreen's male trainer's back sprite but all the pokémon and opponents use sprites from pokémon gold/silver version (with the exception of the ruby/sapphire legendaries and any npcs that weren't in pokémon gold and silver which used yellow's sprites instead. ); all of the pokémon's front sprites are animated with most of them switching back and forth between their gold and silver sprite. All of the music from the game is actually from ruby and sapphire and the layouts on some maps were completely changed. Strangely enough, despite the mechanics being based off of firered & leafgreen, the level up movesets all appear to be based off of gold and silver instead. Another addition to the game is the inclusion of gold and silver legendaries as well as ruby and sapphire legendaries. Despite this being based off of pokémon yellow version, all of the pokémon excluded from the original game still appear here in the port.

Ta-keed, the prince of darkness, has managed to escape from his supernatural penitentiary where he has had centuries to plot exactly how he will take revenge on those that locked him away. Emperor hans sends his troops to deal with this threat, but they are no match for the ultimate evil one. As an alternative, the emperor summons the bearers of 4 magical bells. These 4 adventurers must make their way to the castle and work as a team if they are to destroy ta-keed. The first part of little samson has each of the 4 characters journeying from his or her home land to the emperor's palace. This gives the player an opportunity to explore that character's unique abilities which will be essential throughout the game. 1. Samson is a human who is reasonably fast and also possesses magnificent rock climbing prowess. He is able to scale walls and hang across ceilings, and also grab onto walls and ceilings while jumping. His offensive option is the ability to shoot bells straight ahead. 2. Kikira is the dragon lord. Since she has claws, she does not slip on ice. When she jumps, she can also fly for short bursts. She breathes fire in 2 intensities, depending on how long the player holds down the fire button. Her fireballs spread in arc patterns. 3. Gamm is the rock lord. Since he is a living rock he is very strong. So strong in fact that spikes do not hurt him, which is very valuable in a number of situations. He is also very slow and has only a short leap. He has a powerful punch. 4. K. O. Is the mouse lord. He is tiny which allows him to enter areas that other team members can not. He is also extremely fast and the highest jumper of the team. However, he is the weakest member so he can not sustain very much damage. He has the same wall and ceiling traversal abilities as samson. Offensively, he can drop time-delay bombs. When all 4 characters reach the emperor's palace, they all jump into samson's bell. Actually, gamm and k. O. Quietly jump into samson's bell; kikira initially refuses. After a brief fight (with the player controlling samson), kikira joins the effort. Throughout the rest of the game, the player can switch between any of the 4 characters by entering the sub-screen. Each character has their own power meter. However, all the characters share lives. If the presently selected character loses all of his or her power, then one life is lost. The player must swap between all 4 characters in order to complete the journey.

The time has come for the masked man to begin his journey of adventure for the purpose of safely rescuing the president and avenging the deaths of his brother and former comrades. The game takes you through 8 western-themed regions, each
with a different objective, all of which brings you closer to your nemesis, butch cavendish. The game features many points of view during gameplay.

Loopz (Usa)

Loopz (Usa)

A puzzle game where the main goal is to make loops! random pieces are presented over a board, including simple lines and corners as well as s bends and other warped shapes, of varying sizes. It is up to the player to link them up in a loop form, then moving on to the next level. Pieces can be placed on any empty space on the grid, and rotated into one of the four main compass directions. Any pieces which are not part of the finished loop when a level is completed are left on the screen, so there is value in playing towards 2 distinct loops, to ensure that you have options depending on which pieces are drawn - unlike pipe dream there are no clues as to which pieces are coming next. Three play modes are available, two of which can be played with two players. Game a is freestyle - simply make loops, gaining extra points for size and style. Game b is about unlocking bonus boards of the game by reaching a certain score. And uses a bonus multiplier method depending on loop difficulty. The third mode of play begins with an already made loop and then removes random pieces of it, so the player has to put them back in when they appear again. It is essentially a memory test and logic puzzle of fitting the pieces back as one remembers - although placing a piece where it seems to fit is also often effective.

M.U.L.E. (Usa)

M.U.L.E. (Usa)

M. U. L. E. Is about four hopeful explorers trying to make a fortune on a virgin planet. This is done by producing various goods (food, energy, smithore, crystite). Each of these goods have their uses: if you don't have enough food, you will have less time during your turn. If you don't have enough energy, your output will be lower. If enough smithore isn't produced, there will be a shortage of m. U. L. E. S. Crystite is the big earner that can make or break your game. You start the game by selecting your race. Some are easier to play, some harder. There are three levels of difficulty, in the easiest the game only lasts 6 turns, but the real game is 12 turns. Crystite is not available at the easiest level. Each turn starts with land claim. Each player gets to choose a spot of land for themselves from the map. If two players choose the same spot, the player with less money wins. The map consists of different landscape. River is best for producing food, plains for energy, mountains for smithore. Crystite is hidden and must be first found by taking a land sample to the town. After the land claim each player takes turns in cultivating their land and do other tasks. They can buy m. U. L. E. S to start production on their land, sabotage other players by buying m. U. L. E. S and letting them loose, try to catch the wumpus for cash and try to find crystite veins. The time to do these things depends on if the player has enough food. Finally the player goes to the casino and wins a small amount of money, depending on how much time was left. After the cultivation phase is the production phase where each land produces an amount of goods depending on a number of factors such as if the player has enough energy in storage, what type of land is used, and some random events such as sunspots that increase energy output. Also, if the same player has plots producing the same goods next to each other, they gain a bonus. Three plots of same production type anywhere on the map by the same player also gives a bonus. Third phase is the most interesting one: the auction. Here the players buy and sell their goods on open market. Players negotiate the price by moving up and down on the screen. The shop also has prices that depend on how abundant or scarce the goods is. So if there is a shortage of food, the price goes up and vice versa. This allows for interesting tactics, especially if one player manages to monopolize food, energy or smithore production. If there is no food, others don't have time to change their production types, if there is a shortage of energy, their land won't produce and if there are no m. U. L. E. S they can't change production type on their plot. Hoarding goods also has a drawback in the form of surplus where each turn a percentage of goods is wasted. There are a number of random events in the game. Some affect one player, usually the one winning gets small penalties and the losing player(s) get small rewards. The big events that happen randomly are:
- m. U. L. E. Goes crazy - the m. U. L. E. On one of the plots runs away losing production for that round plus the money to replace it. - planetquake - production of smithore and crystite is much lower. - fire in store - all stock in the shops are destroyed (which means prices will skyrocket, but if you needed to buy something, you are at the mercy of other players). - pirate attack - pirates steal all crystite from stores and players (in the easiest level they steal smithore). Nasty if you happened to have a lot of them waiting for better prices. - acid rain storm - affects the plot under the storm and below it by boosting food production and decreasing energy production. - sunspot activity - increases energy production. - pest attack - eats all food on one plot. - meteor strike - destroys the m. U. L. E on the plot it strikes but creates a very rich crystite plot. M. U. L. E always has four players, with 1-4 human players possible and the rest played by the ai. Because the players only need two buttons at most (up/down in auction) in auction, it's easy to play with four people around the computer. M. U. L. E is a very finely tuned game where rewards, penalties, time to use for various tasks etc. Have been perfectly fine tuned to keep the game balanced. Rules and the random events mean that no two games are the same.

Hell island: great adventure of 7 islands) is an action-adventure game developed for the famicom and msx home computer, and released by capcom in 1987. It is a sequel to a 1984 arcade game developed by capcom known as pirate ship higemaru. Neither the arcade game, nor this adventure adaptation were released outside japan, although a prototype exists for a canceled north american nes release, where it was to be renamed "makai island". In higemaru makaijima, the hero from pirate ship higemaru named momotaru must now pilot his own sailing vessel around the ocean surrounding seven islands. His goal is to find the greatest treasure. To do this, he must collect the keys which open the dock gates to each of the islands by invading several pirate ships and defeating the captain on board in combat. The gameplay on these pirate ships are taken directly from the arcade predecessor, with some small modifications. Once momotaru has collected a key from a pirate ship, he must then sail around the islands in search of the correct dock gate which the key corresponds to. Once there, the player embarks on an exploration of the island to find items, defeat a boss, and collect treasures before heading off in search of another island key. The island exploration sections are extremely reminiscent of dungeon exploration aspects of the legend of zelda, to which the game is often compared to.

Maniac Mansion (Usa)

Maniac Mansion (Usa)

The edison mansion has always been a creepy old house on the edge of town. There have been rumors of strange experiments going on and of odd creatures living amongst the edison family. There is even a story that a meteorite once crashed near the home nearly 20 years ago. More immediately, a girl named sandy has gone missing from the local highschool and her boyfriend dave swears that he saw dr. Fred abducting her. Dave knows that he cannot do it alone and will need help from two other students if he has any hope of infiltrating the mansion and rescuing sandy. Players start by choosing 2 students to accompany dave to the edison mansion, and can then switch between these three characters at will. Most actions are carried out by selecting verbs on the screen and applying them to an object (such as "open door"). Each character maintains a separate personality and may have a different way to solve a problem from his classmates. Thus many of the puzzles can be overcome in different ways depending on the character being used. If any one of the kids are captured by the edisons, they are thrown into the dungeon and must be rescued themselves by any character who still has their freedom.

Mappy Kids (Japan) (T)

Mappy the mouse had a son named happy. Happy has grown up and now wants to settle down with a wife. However, the girl he wants to marry won't agree to marriage until happy can prove that he can provide for a family. So now it's up to happy to collect a small fortune so he can please his would be spouse. Of course, the boss cat nyamco and his legion of mukies stand in the way of making this an easy endeavor. The game is a basic sidescrolling platformer. Happy can defeat his enemies by kicking them. He can also perform a jump, and while he's up in the air, he can spin his tail so he can glide in the air for a short period of time, which is useful for clearing large chasms. Littered throughout the levels are treasure boxes and coins which earn money for happy, which in turn can be spent on items for domestic living. On the other hand, every time happy is hit by an enemy, he loses some money, though a money bag will appear allowing happy to recollect some of the lost money. After each stage, happy is presented with a slot machine ran by nyamco. First, happy spins the wheel to see a prize. Prizes range from extra lives to domestic items. Now, to actually win these prizes, happy must go up against one of the mukies in a minigame. If he fails to win the minigame, he can be penalized by losing some money, domestic items, or even a life. Minigames include waving flags by following nyamco's orders. There's also a minigame where happy stands back to back with a mukie and they try to push each other off a platform. The other minigame involves trying to spot more differences in a picture than the opponent can. After the minigame is over, happy goes to a shop, where he can purchase items for his house. Buying these items will prove to the bride to be that happy is worth marrying. The two player game has both players, (one playing as happy, the other as his brother rappy), competing against each other to collect the most assets to prove their worth as a suitable husband.

Marble Madness (Usa)

Marble Madness (Usa)

A port of the arcade game. The idea is deceptively simple: guide a marble down a path without hitting any obstacles or straying off the course. The game is viewed from an isometric perspective, which makes it harder to stay focused on the direction the ball is to follow. There are tight corridors to follow and enemies to avoid. There is a 2-player mode in which players must race to the finish; otherwise you're racing against the clock.
