I highly recommend it to you guys; it's cheap enough that everyone should give it a try, even if they don't have any nostalgic feelings for it.  The tunes are pretty funky too - each location gets its own unique song, but they unfortunately stop when you do anything in the menu.

For folks interested in this game: It should be super cheap (a few dollars) if you look in the right places.

Clear #4 - Emerald Dragon



Not a bad RPG and close enough to the SF version that even a dummy like me could use its walkthrough and get to the end.  The cut scenes are quite nicely done, it's colorful (sometimes a bit too colorful, looking like a unicorn exploded or something), and its battle system is rather unique - it's turn based like most RPGs but attacking enemies is directly controlled by ramming into them (kinda like in Ys), and you control only the main character while the computer does a mostly competent job of controlling the rest of your party (healing where appropriate, running away when injured, and ganging up on whoever is closest).

Clear #5 - Dracula X



There's not much new to say about this one - if you like platformers at all, you owe it to yourself to get this one.  It's about as perfect as a game can get: fantastic scenery, nicely done cut scenes, an awesome soundtrack, superb controls, beautifully animated sprites, and excellent replay value with hidden exits, branching paths, and two playable characters.

Carmen San Diego is about one of the easiest clears. That and Alzadick. I loved Carmen San Diego on pc when I was a kid so I really liked this version. Too bad the songs don't play for more then a few seconds because I really liked some of the tracks.

I like those old school TV screen pictures. Best way to prove an emulator was not used.

Clear #6 - Bazaaru de Gozaaru no Geemu de Gozaaru



This fun if easy puzzler is cuter than a bug's ear, just like the lil' NEC mascot it features.  It's hard not to smile while making Bazzy jump, dance, and spin his way to the exit, dodging barking doggies and mean warthogs along the way, and there's a decent amount of replay value in trying to collect all the money bags too (to spend on furnishings for the monkey bachelor pad).



If you get stuck: Bazzy Guide.

Bazzy is one of those games that I want to play...but not sure when I'll ever get a chance to... WOE IS ME

Also, Rover and I know that Bazzy loves platanos, not bananas (a common misconception we have been trying to dispel for years now).
