Famicom Impressions: Nakajima Satoru F-1 Hero

Famicom Impressions: Nakajima Satoru F-1 Hero

Next up on Famicom Impressions is a racing game called Nakajima Satoru F-1 Hero 中島悟F-1ヒーロー (VRE-F1), released by Varie in 1988. I’m not that into racing games, but I gave it a shot.. You can choose between “Warming Up”, “Battle Mode” or “Grand Prix Mode”. I began with Warming Up, then I got a guy, who … Continue reading

Famicom Impressions: Pooyan

Famicom Impressions: Pooyan

Out of the last couple of Famicom games I picked up, this was the most playable, until the 2nd stage at least…. This is the Famicom Impression of Pooyan プーヤン (HFC-PO) released by Konami in 1985. An arcade-like platform game. It was I think an arcade game before it was ported to console. You can really … Continue reading

Famicom Impressions: Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiya Jin Zetsumetsu Keikaku

Famicom Impressions: Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiya Jin Zetsumetsu Keikaku

I managed to find a Dragon Ball game for the Famicom that I didn’t previously have! This time for Famicom Impressions I tried out Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiya Jin Zetsumetsu Keikaku ドラゴンボールZ 外伝 サイヤ人絶滅計画 (BA-DBZ4) released by Bandai in 1993. Dragon Ball games usually have pretty colorful artwork containing silly anime characters with funky hair, and the … Continue reading

Famicom Impressions: Suikoden – Tenmei no Chikai

The next Famicom impression is on Suikoden: Tenmei no Chikai 水滸伝・天命の誓い (KOE-XJ) by Koei from 1989 and… I seriously have no clue what is going on in this one.. It’s some sort of RPG/strategy/story-telling nonsense about ancient dudes in China.. so.. yeah.. this: I don’t know if I chose the wrong menu or if there’s some kind … Continue reading

Famicom Impressions: King of Kings

Famicom Impressions: King of Kings

Next up for Famicom Impressions is King of Kingsキングオブキングス. It was a game I didn’t have, looking at the artwork on the cartridge made me quite positive it was some kind of strategy game (I’ve learned to tell the difference on these Japanese games with their beautifully deceiving artworks XD). But you never know! I could … Continue reading

Famicom Impressions: Captain Tsubasa

Famicom Impressions: Captain Tsubasa

I have quite a lot of Famicom games, over 900 unique ones, and when I sometimes search for information about some lesser known titles on the internet it usually won’t give a lot of rewarding results. So I thought I’d start a series where I do short first impressions of all of my Famicom games so people … Continue reading
