This sequel to the classic Elevator Action was first released in arcades in 1994, then later for the Sega Saturn in 1997.
Qix was always a great arcade game, but turning the idea into an adventure for the Game Boy Colour was a stroke of genius for Taito.
Taito’s Lufia series has enjoyed moderate success over a number of platforms and releases over the decades, but this Game Boy Advance release (out in 2002 in Japan, and 2003 in North America – it never got an official European release) is the best game in the series, in my opinion.
This 1997 Sega Saturn conversion is an official sequel to Bubble Bobble, and is a brilliant game in its own right.
This grab is as good as any to start off with. I love the colour and composition in this Operation Wolf PC Engine screenshot.
Taito‘s Chase HQ is an intense arcade driving game where you chase down criminals and have to bash them into submission with your vehicle.
