After being kidnapped by the cult Gorgom on the night of their 19th birthday, stepbrothers Kotaro Minami and Nobuhiko Akizuki were submitted to a cyborg surgery with the purpose of becoming the candidates for the next Gorgom Creation King. Both of them are called Century Kings and are destined to best each other in a final battle - whoever wins will become the next Creation King. Kotaro escaped before getting brainwashed (which is the final step in the surgery), with help from his foster father, and turned against Gorgom. He soon finds out the horrific truth from his stepfather: Gorgom originally killed his true parents and, since both Kotaro and Nobuhiko were born on the day of a solar eclipse, referred as "Black Sun" and "Shadow Moon". Kotaro, taking on the name of Kamen Rider Black, was determined to rescue his stepbrother from Gorgom while protecting Japan. However, later in the series, Nobuhiko emerged as Shadow Moon to fight Kotaro with the survivor becoming the next Creation King. In the game, players take control of Kamen Rider Black, who must defeat numerous Gorgom mutants. There are five levels of four stages each.

Meimon! Daisan Yakyuubu ("Meimon! The Third Baseball Club") is a baseball sim for the Famicom that is based on a manga and anime of the same name about an underdog high school baseball team and the drama that surrounds them. The player can access the game's story mode, which depicts scenes from the manga, by selecting "Dramatic Mode" from the title screen menu. This also adds character portraits to the main game mode. The game itself is a fairly standard NES baseball game. The pitching/batting perspective is from directly behind the batter, and the player moves the entire group of fielders simultaneously whenever the ball is hit. Graphically, the many super-deformed athletes resemble those of Namco's Famista (the series upon which RBI Baseball was based), which was very much the leading baseball franchise at the time.

S.Q. - Sound Qube is a puzzle game released in 1998 for the Playstation & Saturn consoles. GAMEPLAY: You are armed with a RED and BLUE sonar. Each stage has a number of stacked cubes, visually they all look alike, but using the sonar you can find out whether the cube is RED, BLUE, WHITE, Core, or Jammer. To clear the stage one has to find the 'Core' cube and eliminate it. Fire a RED sonar using the 'circle' button and if the sound penetrates the cube with a 'swishing' sound, then the cube CANNOT be RED. If a 'do-in' sound echoes back, then the cube MAYBE of the RED. I say maybe because this cube can also be the all important 'Core' cube. To find out blast it with the BLUE sonar and if it echoes back the 'do-in' sound, then you have found the 'Core' cube. Eliminate by pressing the 'triangle' key twice and then press the 'circle' key. A WHITE cube lets pass both RED and BLUE sonar with a 'swishing' sound. Reply With Quote

It features eighteen teams from national leagues across the world, the majority of which are from European or South American countries.

This was a common copyright-avoidance tactic Human Entertainment utilized for their Fire Pro Wrestling games. As with previous Super Famicom entries, the game uses a distinctive perspective that employs Mode 7 to present a Z-axis view of the pitch, with the player's goal is at the "bottom" of the screen and the opponent's goal is at the far end. The game has multiple modes, including exhibition matches and tournaments, and can support up to four players in a number of team configurations.

The game uses national teams, though the player is free to create their own "All-Star" team by mixing and matching the soccer players in the game. They can select from an exhibition match, a penalty shoot-out mode or a tournament called the Human Cup. Newly added to the second Super Formation Soccer is the inclusion of three and four player multiplayer, with the use of a multitap peripheral. There are pre-set options for one vs one, two vs one (the one can be human or CPU) and two vs two, rather than the now standard system of allowing each player to move their controller icon to either team.

Tatakae!! Rahmen Man is a spin-off of the Kinnukiman franchise, known in the US as M.U.S.C.L.E.. Rahmen Man was among the many characters of that franchise. Though the game's title screen credits a company called Shinsei as the publisher, it was a toy company with no prior game publishing that would soon be merged with Bandai, suggesting it was used in a subsidiary role by the toy-producing giant. Notably, this game is the first true point-and-click adventure game for the system. While there had been many adventure games made for the NES, such as Portopia or Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom, they had been largely driven by menus. Rahmen Man is directed by using the cursor to select an area to walk to or interact with instead much like classic Sierra adventure games such as King's Quest.

The plot is based on a TV sitcom of the 60's named Gilligan's Island. Your ship crashed on a deserted island, and now you must get back to civilization. The stranded people on the island are: Gilligan and the Skipper ( the crew of the ship), a millionaire and his wife, a professor, and Mariann who is a homely Midwest U.S.A. girl. Despite the name, you'll be playing as the Skipper. Gilligan follows you around as a comedic relief sidekick. The game is divided into four episodes; the goal is always to locate all crew members in a limited amount of time. To do so the two heroes have to navigate the maze-like island and collect items - every found character provides hints for the next step. There are also a lot of dangers which have to be faced: wild animals and headhunters can be fought with your bare hands and fallen rocks or obstacles on the ground have to be avoided. A common nuisance are holes in the ground which lead to the underground caves: Gilligan is likely to fall into these. If this happens Skipper has two minutes to get Gilligan back. There are three items which help Skipper on his quest: bananas replenish his health, hourglasses give extra time and the rope is used to get Gilligan back instantly.

The Firemen was a Super Nintendo Entertainment System game where the player controls Pete, the fire fighter, as he rescues people from a burning building. Fires, smoke, and other hazards await as Pete tries to save the day. Use of the fire extinguisher is unlimited although continues are limited in number. The game was released in Europe, Australia and Japan. The Firemen 2 tells the story of two courageous firemen who are named Pete Grey and Danny McClean. They're busy keeping New York City safe from rampaging fires. The game takes place on Christmas Eve. Guided by their correspondent back at the station, Winona, Pete and Danny must visit multiple areas across the city, and put a stop to a series of mysterious fires that have been popping up all over. You (or you and a friend in 2 player mode) guide Pete and Danny in a traditional bird's eye view format. The game plays like a standard old-school 2D shooter game, like Commando or Contra. The only difference is, instead of guns, you're armed with hoses. And instead of seemingly endless military and/or alien drones, you battle the most malicious fire to ever walk the face of the earth. The areas that our heroes explore include a wide variety of locations around New York City. These places include a theme park, a giant aquarium, a hotel, and even an animatronic dinosaur exhibit. In each level, you are given a mission. (Rescue Pete's daughter, who got caught in one of the fires, rescue the penguins in a zoo before the fire gets to them, etc.)

A motorcycle driving game developed by Human and published by Varie for the NES. It was released in Japan only at the end of 1988. Top Racer is a motorcycle racing game from a behind-the-bike perspective. In both these respects, it's a very similar game to Sega's Hang-On series of motorcycle racers. The player can choose from two modes: Grand Prix, in which the player partakes in several consecutive races and Touring, in which the player can choose one of four courses for a single race. The game is notable for its unusual peripheral: An inflatable motorcycle with a special handlebar controller built-in. The player can sit on the peripheral once fully inflated and use the handlebars to control the on-screen bike.

Twilight Syndrome - Kyumei Hen is a direct sequel to the first Twilight Syndrome game, continuing the spooky adventures of the three brave and reckless high-school girls: Yukari, Mika, and Chisato. The first mystery involves a girl named Sakura Himegami, who was killed in an accident many years ago; apparently, her ghost is still around somewhere. The trail leads to an abandoned path in the mountains; Mika decides to venture there, while the other two are going back to school at night, hoping to find more clues. The gameplay is identical to that of the previous entry: the player navigates the digitized images of the girls over 2D backgrounds in a side-scrolling/third-person perspective manner, searching for clues, triggering scenes, and choosing responses and/or actions when prompted by the narrative. As in the first game, these choices may influence the course of the story, and lead to various endings of the chapters; reaching a "bad" ending prevents the player from continuing to the next chapter.

Every high-school has its own dark secrets. Well, maybe not every; but in Japan, this seems to be a rather popular theme. Mysterious disappearances, ghostly photographs, untimely deaths, eerie sounds coming out of the music room - all these things attract the curiosity of three high-school girls: Yukari, Mika, and Chisato. At night, armed with nothing but a flashlight, the trio of heroines enters the dark school building, prepared to explore every corner, and investigate every urban legend they have heard of... Tansaku-hen opens the Twilight Syndrome horror adventure series, defining its stylistic traits and gameplay. The game is divided into chapters, each dedicated to a particular "ghostly" story. Unlike most Japanese-style adventures, there is physical character navigation in the game; the player moves digitized images of the three girls on 2D backgrounds, in a manner somewhat similar to side-scrolling games - though many areas feature a third dimension, like in Western third-person perspective adventures. The gameplay consists of two activities only: walking and occasionally choosing a dialogue option and/or action, as prompted by the game's narrative. There is no other kind of interaction, no inventory, and no combat. Different choices may lead to different endings; the next chapter can be accessed only if the player has not attained the "bad" ending. Twilight Syndrome: Tansaku-hen abandons the nearly omnipresent anime/manga graphical style of Japanese games in favor of digitized images and photos of real people.

Venus Senki ("The Venus Wars") is based on The Venus Wars manga series written and illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. The game takes place during the year 2089, long after humans have taken settlement on neighboring planet Venus and focuses on a war between three factions for control of the planet. The player assumes the role of the Hound biker gang, who have taken it upon themselves to defend the nearby Io City from encroaching forces from the Ishtar Empire. With eight attack vehicles that resemble futuristic hoverbikes and two transport vehicles which repair the bikes and replenish their ammo, the squad moves from destination to destination repelling the Ishtar forces. Gameplay varies between turn-based strategy on the overworld map to a vehicular combat mode when engaging in close combat. The goal of these sequences is to eliminate all the enemy's craft as they fly or drive towards the player, using a finite supply of missiles and an endless supply of bullets. A certain number of special enemy types, usually purple in color, need to be destroyed for the unit to disappear from the strategic map. Role-playing elements also take precedence with the player's ability to level-up and gain experience from fights. Characters can be viewed between missions to check on their progress.

All play roughly the same.
