Today I’ve also added a few new PC Engine games to my PC Engine Collection >>
The games are:
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 >-<
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!
This was a really interesting puzzle game! I’ve never seen anything quite like this one.
All the different stages have new shapes that you need to match.
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.
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!
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.. >_<
