And so, Rad Gravity begins the quest that will carry him far beyond the life he's known thus far-- to the strange, twisted world of Cyberia, where killer robots guard information that is vital to his mission!

But Cyberia is a beacon of hope compared to the rotting carcass of Effluvia, where the garbage of the universe does not go to die!

From the lands of the decadent future it's too short a trip to the land where dinosaurs still walk and fire ants nip your toes - Sauria!

Then it's on to the old-fashioned beauty of the cloud city hovering high above verdant Vernia! Cool and serene, it's the absolute opposite of--

--the down-and-dirty antics of the gnomes who plague passers-by on Odar!

And between the worlds are the shifting terrors of the asteroid belt, where the only means of avoiding the constantly swirling stones is the principle of action and reaction! To move in one direction, a space cadet must fire his weapon in the other direction, to push him along!

But the weirdest world of all awaits where gravity has gone wild-- on the upside down sphere of Turvia! And this is but a fraction of the fate to be found in-- The Adventures of Rad Gravity!

Rocky and Bullwinkle were having a great day until they received a telegram, informing them that one of Bullwinkle's uncles has passed away. On the plus side, that uncle left his castle to Bullwinkle, and if he can get to England, Bullwinkle will become an Earl. However, Boris and Natasha are out to stop him from getting there. You take control of Rocky and Bullwinkle as they travel through five levels of intense action on their quest to reach the UK. To get through each level, you will have to utilize each character's unique skills: Rocky can fly past particular obstacles and Bullwinkle can perform a charge attack. You will also have to keep an eye out for the bombs that Boris and Natasha plant in each level. See if you can lead Bullwinkle to his destiny in THE ADVENTURES OF ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE.

The game consists of seven levels that take you through various locales: A Swiss Alps-style mountain, a cavern, a mine, a submarine, a haunted ship, a port town, and a castle. Mini-games were available at certain points that allowed you to collect extra lives. These mini-games were Peabody and Sherman, where you controlled Sherman and blew bubble gum bubbles to clog a dragon's mouth, and Dudley Do-Right, where you rode a horse and avoided an ever-approaching train which was driven by Snidely Whiplash.

A 2D platformer starring the titular circus bat, Aero the Acrobat spans 24 levels, across four themed environments. In a bizarre hostile takeover attempt by an evil billionaire, the circus has been rigged with all manner of traps and devices, and overrun by clown henchmen whose sole purpose is to get rid of Aero. Using his ability to glide for limited periods, Aero must maneuver across tightropes and moving platforms, among a host of other impediments along his journey. To aid him in his quest to defeat the villainous Edgar Ektor, Aero has at his disposal a devastating spin attack, and once found Aero can throw projectile stars at enemies. Health and extra life power-ups can be found littered about the levels.

Objectives change across the many levels, and require Aero to jump through a succession of hoops or ride in log-flumes, roller coasters, and the like, while avoiding obstacles and jumping chasms. At the conclusion of certain environments Aero will face a giant boss character, whom he must defeat to continue onwards. Bonus levels take the form of a Mode 7 high-dive, where Aero must maneuver through a series of blue loops en route to the pool of water on the ground. To make this more difficult, wind machines will appear from the sides of the screen and try to blow Aero away from the loops.

Introducing our three chief protagonists: Aero the Acrobat, a daredevil bat who is the star of the circus; Edgar Ektor, clown prince and mean guy extraordinaire; and Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel, Ektor's chief henchman whose sense of duty and loyalty seem strangely misplaced.

Probably the most concerted effort by a software house in cloning the success of the Sonic series. Gets old fast, ridiculous in places, but you never lack for action. It sold by the bucketful when it was first released.

Aero the Acrobat has a really annoying circus music soundtrack & never quite lives up to it's promise as a Sonic beater.

The useridea behind this game is just to solve puzzle kind of levels with some... space man. With this astronaut (if you can call it that way) you have to shoot other astronauts, space ships and avoid mines bombs and aliens (if it are aliens, I'm not sure :). At the end of a level (which is just one screen). You have to shoot some kind of ball, seems like the thing you have to hit and then there come out squirts and other animals in the Sonic series on the Sega. Then the level is finished. You get an amount of time at the start of the level (1 min, 2 min and so on) within you have to reach the ball thing.

1-on-1 fighter featuring 8 selectable characters.

The game's major innovation is the ability to walk into the background, in a similar manner to side-scrolling beat 'em ups such as "Streets of Rage" or "Final Fight" because of this, unlike many other 2-D fighting games, the game uses one action button to jump, it also does not use the 'D' button, (Which many of SNK's other fighters did), only 2 action buttons are used for attacking (punch and kick), instead grappling and grabbing opponents (Pressing the A & B buttons simultaneously) is the focus of the gameplay, opponents can counter being grabbed, as well as break free. Also featured is weapon play, again similar to beat 'em ups, weapons can be picked up and thrown, or used in special & standard attacks. Weapons are thrown in by background crowd user who will step forward to toss them into the ring. Another (strange) innovation of the game is that characters start to sweat -graphicly- after a while.

Characters have unusually high health for the genre, with multiple, different colored, health bars in one bar similar to a method of health bars used for boss characters in games of the time, in addition to this, each character has a 'Crazy Meter' at the bottom of the screen, which is built up as characters attack, this gives the character a special, often very bizarre, attack that will kill the opponent outright, known as the Gan Gan Attack in Japan, and the Crazy Attack in the US.

Battles are joined by irreverent, sometimes humorous pre-fight banter from characters, the dialog differs depending on whom each opponent is, and a clashing of 2 small images of the characters eyes in the center of the screen.

When released most reviewers though AODK was a mediocre title at best. Now it is considered a cult game, recommended for all those gamers who want a unique fighting game.

In this platformer Aladdin must find Jasmine and defeat Jafar. His travels will take him from the Streets of Agrabah all the way to the Cave of Wonders and back again leading up to the final showdown.
Aladdin is aided by his friends Abu, Carpet and the Genie but in the end he alone must outsmart Jafar or else he'll end up as food for Iago.
A well made game that makes good use of the settings while staying faithful to the movie.

The game faithfully follows the story as laid out in the movie, and offers players a variety of play styles. From run-and-jump sequences as he tries to jump over holes, platforms, and barrels while the screen scrolls automatically. To more traditional side-scrolling platform levels. Additional levels will have players flying the magic carpet or defeating Jafar in a sword duel.

Based on the Disney movie; converted from the 16-bit console arcade game (it is closest to the Sega Genesis version). Just finish the levels to save your princess Jasmine with the help from your friends (Abu and Genie). Collect apples to use as throwing weapons to defeat your enemies, and collect "genie icons" to give yourself more chances during the bonus rounds.

Play as Aladdin, the "diamond in the rough" who discovers a magical lamp that leads him on all sorts of adventures. Based on the hit Disney movie, itself inspired by the original tale from the 1001 Arabian Nights compilation.

Fairly solid gameplay, impressive graphics with stunning colors, and great character animation.

The fourth of the five SMS Alex Kidd games, Alex Kidd: High-Tech World is in fact a conversion of Anmitsu Hime, a japanese game released two years earlier. (The box text says it's the third because BMX Trial was not released outside Japan.)

Get ready to join the Kidd in his third great Sega adventure! Being the Crown Prince of Planet Aries is never easy. On top of being a galactic hero, you have to deal with parents, teachers and palace retainers! But you're a Kidd at heart, and you just have to go to the new High-Tech World video arcade to play the newest Sega games!

The problem is, the map to the arcade has been torn up into eight pieces and hidden in the castle. As you look for the pieces you'll discover just how weird life in a castle can be! If you find them, you'll have to fight your way through a forest filled with blue Ninjas. Survive this ordeal and you'll have to find a travel pass in the village to make it over the border!

It's a game of wits, intrigue, action and excitement. There's even a PASSWORD so you can save games. Survive all the obstacles and you'll play in the hottest arcade in the land. But if you don't hert there before the 5:00 closing time, you'll be left out in the cold! Better hurry!

Alex's worst outing ever. The main problem with this is the presence of a very harsh restart procedure which always places you back at the beginning when you die. Argghhh!

Many centuries ago, on the planet Aries, there lived a boy called Alex Kidd. For seven years, he lived on Mt. Eternal studying Shellcore, an ancient art that makes one strong enough to break rocks into pieces. As he was leaving the mountain one day to travel to his spiritual homeland, a dying man told him that the peaceful city of Radactian was in grave danger. Before taking his last breath, the man gave Alex a piece of a map and a medallion made of Sun Stone.

There are eleven locations in which Alex must explore, each of them has its own unique dangers. In each location, Alex can collect bags of coins, which can be used to buy items at the shop and are used to help Alex get through each location (eg: motorcycle, peticopter, power bracelet, etc.) There are also traps that Alex must avoid like the ghost that chases him. He can also collect the Telepathy Ball that will help him read people's minds.

Later, Alex learns that in order to save Radactian from destruction, he must first defeat Janken the Great, Emperor of the planet Janbarik (he got his name from his expertise at the game of Janken -- or what people call "scissors, paper, stone" in the Western World. Janken has sent his henceman all over Radactian to prepare the game for Alex as he passes by them. In order to get past them, Alex must win three times at Janken. If he loses, he is turned to stone and vanished from Radactian forever. Later on in the game, Alex must play with the same henceman, but only this time, when Alex wins, they decide to play dirty.

Alex uses his fists to wipe out some of Janken's enemies such as birds, sea horses, bats, monkeys, frogs, and a few others. If his quest to save Radactian from the evil hands of Janken becomes difficult, he can instead use the power bracelet to perform the "Shocking Waves of Destruction", an ancient trick in the art of Shellcore.

Before Alex comes face-to-face with Janken, he should rescue his brother, Egle, from imprisonment, and get the letter and two medallions.

This is undoubtedly his most successful attempt. It was designed in competition to Mario and uses many of the same popular and successful elements.
