Finally I’ve had some time to go through all the games that were already on my desk before leaving for Japan, and also the 117 games I bought while in Tokyo!! :D
On this trip to Tokyo I mainly focused on Famicom, I just went through every shelf of every retro gaming store and picked up anything I found that I didn’t already have! This concluded in a few really rare and expensive titles, but also a lot of junk like baseball games and unplayable mystery solving games and RPGs, but I’m really happy to finally have Gimmick!, Over Horizon and Snow Bros in my collection :D
Snow Bros wasn’t as fun as I had hoped. Kind of like Bubble Bobble, but not as cute :/
Over Horizon is a great shooter! The visuals are so pretty ^_^
And Gimmick! was also a lot of fun! So adorable, but yet difficult! ^_^
I also found Chip n’ Dale Rescue Rangers in pretty condition and Gebara (or Guevara) which I’ve only ever encountered once before and it was too expensive that time. Below is also a game called Jigoku Gokuraku Maru. I had never seen it before but the cover art reminded me of Genpei Toumaden so I assumed it was good ;D and it was! But it’s just a sidescrolling action platform where you play as a red-headed girl :)
Guevara is a fun Commando-style shooter where you can team up with a friend (who then plays as Fidel Castro) ;D
I found a Famicom cartridge copy of After Burner, I’ve never seen that before either.. I have it for Sega Master System and Mega Drive though.. Also got Cross Fire and Guardic Gaiden (Guardian Legend).
Cross Fire was kind of fun, very much like Dead Fox (Code Name Viper) but not quite as good.
I’ve been looking for Wanpaku Kokkun no Gourmet World but it’s been awfully pricey on eBay, in Tokyo however it was much more affordable ^_^ The middle game is called Pyokotan no Dai Meiro and it’s kind of like a maze game but with various mini-games whenever you open chests and stuff. It was interesting :) I also found Moero Twin Bee on a cart! I’ve only ever seen it for the Disk System, I didn’t think it existed on a cartridge, but I was pleased to find it ^_^
Wanpaku Kokkun no Gourmet World was OK, kind of easy and childish though.
In Moero Twinbee you can play three players simultaneously! This blew my mind ^___^
These were just a few of all the Famicom cartridges I got (103 in total!), but I also scored a few Super Famicom Games:
And some PC Engine and Sega Mega Drive games:
Now this was a few of the pickups, I will make another post soon with all the rest of the Famicom carts when I’ve uploaded them to the Famicom Collection Library :)
