1943: The Battle of Midway

DEVELOPER: Capcom
DATE: -
GENRE: Vertical Shoot 'em Up
Awesome sequel to the absolutely classic WW2 shooter. 'Cept for more lasers...

Abadox

DEVELOPER: Natsume
DATE: JP: December 15, 1989 | NA: March 1990
GENRE: Sidescrolling Shoot 'em Up
Hell yeah! It's Abadox. Like Forgotten Worlds, you control a robot thing (I think it's a robot thing). This game is haaaard, but absolutely beautiful to look at. The stages are made of guts and other bio things and it's... just chef's kiss.

Action in New York

DEVELOPER: Natsume
DATE: JP: June 22, 1990 | NA: June 1991 | PAL: 1992
GENRE: Sidescrolling Shoot 'em Up
Also known as SCAT: Special Cybernetic Attack Team (see, it's not bad). Interesting. You don't control a ship, but wannabe Terminator and Ripley. It's similar to Forgotten Worlds. Post-apocalyptic cyberpunk smth sceneary. Hard as balls.

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Pool of Radiance

DEVELOPER: Marionette
DATE: April 1992
GENRE: TRPG
Strategic Simulations' PC D&D games are awesome, and this port isn't too shaby either.

Adventure Island

DEVELOPER: Hudson Soft
DATE: 1987?
GENRE: 2D Platformer | Arcadey
Fun time waster game where you collect fruits to survive, since your health bar is always depleating. TBH I prefer the original Wonder Boy. No idea why.

DATE: NA: February, 1991 | JP: April 26, 1991 | EU: July 22, 1992

DEVELOPER: HAL Laboratory
DATE: JP: January 6, 1990 | NA: March 20, 1991 | EU: 1991

A charming, yet difficult puzzle game. Apparently the Japanese version is more brutal, but haven't tried that one.

It's Arkanoid! It's fun! (Ignore the fact that it's the Spectrum cover being shown...)

DATE: JP: January 22, 1985 | NA: June 1986 | PAL: March 12, 1987
