Famicom Impressions: Tecmo Super Bowl

Famicom Impressions: Tecmo Super Bowl

Oh no, it’s time for another sports game! It’s not an RPG this time though, just PURE AMERICAN FOOTBALL in Tecmo Super Bowl テクモスーパーボウル (TCF-4U) on Famicom, released in 1991. It has some nice graphics in the intro, and I really kind of liked the music in game, the little that I got to hear of … Continue reading

A guy recently contacted me because he saw that I had some games for trade on my blog, we started emailing back and forth and he actually had a bunch of Famicom games and a few other games that I didn’t have, so we made a nice deal ^_^ He received a few boxed Sega Mega Drive … Continue reading

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..

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

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

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
