Pengo on the Megadrive is an excellent remake of the classic Sega arcade game, Pengo, and it was published on cartridge (unfortunately in Japan only) in 1995.
Published in Japan by Hudson Soft in 1996, Do-Re-Mi Fantasy is a cute and colourful platform game that is actually the sequel to the Famicom game Milon’s Secret Castle.
Do-Re-Mi Fantasy doesn’t really look like Milon’s Secret Castle – or play like it for that matter – but it does share the same bubble-blowing DNA as its predecessor.
Hudson Soft‘s 1986 NES release, Milon’s Secret Castle, is a platform game with a focus on uncovering secrets. Either by shooting walls and platforms with bubbles, or by headbutting certain tiles.
Released into arcades by Sun Electronics (aka Sunsoft) in 1983, Arabian is a platform game in which you play a prince on a mission to rescue a princess from a castle in which she is being held prisoner.
Developed by Micromania and published by Flair Software 1994, Dangerous Streets is an infamous fighting game for the Amiga and CD32. Infamous because it is so bad…
Created by Ian Gray and Lee Braine and published by Ocean Software in 1985, A Fistful of Bucks (aka A Fi$tful of Buck$) is a simple, scrolling cowboy shooter with you playing a bounty hunter on the hunt for cash.
Tony Crowther‘s 1985 release, William Wobbler, is somewhat controversial among critics and fans… Some love it; some hate it. Actually, let me re-phrase that: most people hate it… And (rather infamously) the leading Commodore 64 magazine of the time (Newsfield’s Zzap!64) gave it a hard time, and it pretty much sank without a trace.
