Nintendo Famicom Disk System - Released - December 9, 1988

VS. Excitebike, not to be confused with the Nintendo VS UniSystem arcade game of the same name, is an enhanced Famicom Disk System version of the Nintendo Entertainment System game Excitebike. The main difference is the addition of a new mode called Vs. Excite. In Vs. Excite, two players race against each other. There is another mode called Original Excite, which is based on the main mode of the arcade version of the game, with some color palette differences. Thanks to the re-writable disk format, players can also save their tracks internally, without the need of the Famicom Data Recorder....

Nintendo Satellaview - April 23, 1995

Wario's Woods is a falling block game where the objective is to clear the playing field of monsters by using bombs, arranging them into rows of matching colors. Unlike other puzzle games such as Tetris, where the player directly manipulates the game pieces, the player controls Toad, who moves around the playing field and arranges them after they have fallen. This game is a pseudo-sequel to the earlier-broadcast Wario's Woods.
