Christmas gift from Canada!

Sorry for the lack of posts recently but this holiday has been very busy.

Not only celebrating xmas and spending time with family, but also organizing and cleaning games. I bought quite a lot of games from Ebay recently, and I’m still not done scanning and trying them all out yet..

Also today I received an exciting package from Canada!! It was from Alana at ^_^ It contained some 8 bit bead art that she has created:

And a Kirby Fun Pak game for the SNES:

Apart from my Nintendo 3DS this was the best christmas gift this year :D Thank you Alana!! :D
And not to forget my cute mushroom lamps that I got from my bff ^_^ They fit in perfectly in my Retro Room!

I’ll be back soon with more posts on all the new games I’ve gotten and also a Game & Watch :D

More PC Engine games: Spin Pair, Star Parodier, Monster Lair etc

Today I’ve also added a few new PC Engine games to my PC Engine Collection >>

The games are:
Star Parodier__
Star Parodier
I read about this one in the free online magazine PC Engine Gamer and it got such great reviews I immediately looked it up and got it! However, I didn’t reflect on the fact that the game was a CD-ROM game until I finally got it by mail.. and still don’t have a DUO >-<

Wonderboy III - Monster Lair_
Wonder Boy III Monster Lair
This is also a game that supposedly is great, however, this one is ALSO CD-ROM >_< soon though.. I will get a PC Engine DUO!

Spin Pair_
Spin Pair
This was a really interesting puzzle game! I’ve never seen anything quite like this one.
Spin Pari Start
All the different stages have new shapes that you need to match.
Spin Pair Stage 1
In the beginning it’s quite easy with simple shapes. You can swith places on the two shapes that drop and with the second button you can also rotate the insides in 4 different directions, filling either the top, bottom, left or right of the shape. Then you have to match it with a corresponding shape that has the opposite side filled.
Spin Pair Easy
It gets quite hard after a while, and it speeds up at times, then the only thing you can do to slow it down again is to match a certain amount of shapes, which is really hard when it’s speeding!
Spin Pair mess

Doraemon Meikyuu Daisakusen_
Doraemon Meikyuu Daisakusen
Another Doraemon game, this one is a platforming action with a top view perspective. Kind of like Sunsoft’s Batman for PC Engine. I just beat the game a few days ago, I will try to make a review of it someday soon ^_^

I also added Atomic Robo-kid to my PC Engine collection, I’ve already written a bit about that game here >> and another new game was Sindibad: Chitei no Dai Makyuu, which I haven’t tried out yet. I think it’s an RPG though.. >_<

Updates in the Famicom Collection

It’s been a busy week.. first I got this huuuge package of games from Japan:

Sorting, cleaning, organizing and trying them all out has been taking some time. BTW, I really love the japanese store stickers, they are always so easy to just peel off without any effort! :D And from this Ebay seller the stickers even had a corner folded in so it was really easy to grip and rip ^^

Apart from that I have been updating my Famicom Collection, now I am finished with “S” which was the largest letter! 64 games just starting with the letter “S”! I also added a few other new additions like Lot Lot, Mississippi Satsujin Jiken, Madara,  Maniac Mansion, Meikyuu Jima (Kickle Cubicle), Ninja Jajamara Kun, Obake no Q Tarou,  Paaman, Perfect Bowling, Puzslot, Quinty etc.. You can check them all out in my Famicom Collection >>

Some games I would like to highlight:

A really fun platformer, where each boss battle is like a boardgame race to the finish line, even though it’s in japanese it’s quite easy to follow ^_^

A fun puzzle game, kind of like Columns where you have to match colors and shapes falling down in pairs, except here you first have to stop the slot-machine-like pieces so it’s quite random what you will get and if you don’t stop them fast enough you won’t have time to place them correctly.

Salamander (Life Force)_

kyattou ninden teyandee (Samurai Pizza Cats)

An entertaining platformer based on a heavy metal band. It’s really hard though.
