Though its graphics may seem dated now, this classic game inspired by Space Invaders & Asteroids was pretty revolutionary in its time, and was the top-selling game of all time by Williams Electronics. It was also one of the first games to feature a mini-map to track your progress through a stage!
Imagine if James Bond had an unlicensed game made about him in a car (and boat) chase during the early 80’s. Congratulations—you just imagined Spy Hunter! Jump into your G-6155 Interceptor and fight off enemies on both land and sea, using your steering wheel, wits, and some sweet guns.
Set after the original Street Fighter, but before SFII, Alpha features gorgeous, anime-styled sprites & environments, as well as cool cutscenes, a bevy of characters, and revamped Super Combo system. Don’t just battle your friends … Chain combos on ’em in “Dramatic Battles”!
In Assault, you’re not just in a tank. You’re in a SUPER FUTURISTIC TANK on an ALIEN PLANET! Grab a joystick and fire nukes to keep your hull intact and your head safely on your neck. This planet is anything but friendly and wants you dead … Time to show ’em not to mess with an Earthling (or his nukes)!
Work hard. Play harder! Blitz ’99 marked one of the first (good) 3D football games. You know the drill: pick your team, hit the field, and win the Superbowl! Forget real-world rules, too. This game is all about stats and getting that pigskin where it’s gotta go, without all the red tape.
Mario’s lady troubles didn’t start with the NES—oh no, he was dealing with random dudes stealing his women as early as 1981, when Donkey Kong decided to make off with Pauline. What’s worse is that the gorilla can’t even chill when he’s been caught, and you gotta vault over all sorts of crap he throws in your way! It’s a good thing he eventually abandoned his kidnapping ways. Too bad Bowser still hasn’t gotten the memo.
