Adventure Island

DEVELOPER: Hudson Soft
DATE: 1987?

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.

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

Shooter

1942

DEVELOPER: Capcom
DATE: JP: December 11, 1985 | NA: November 1, 1986

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.
