Alex Kidd is the brother of King Igul, ruler of Planet Aries. Acting on a rumored sighting of their missing father, Alex travels to the planet Paperock to find him. Why the name? Because the child's sport of Paper-Rock-Scissors is a planet wide institution, and those who visit must display some talent in the game. The only MegaDrive entry in the long-running and popular series of arcade and console games by Sega.

Not very challenging, but not bad for a game made back in 1987.

The Kidd is back! It's Alex, the little Prince with big ears and unlimited courage. When danger threatens the Miracle World of Aries, Alex Kidd is there to meet any challenge.

This time, the evil Jigaratt has stolen the stars from the Aries constellation. The skies above the city of Radactian are now cold and dark. Only someone of royal blood can get them back... and that's the Kidd!

Join Alex in fourteen rounds of adventure to worlds where anything is possible! You have legs that jump like steel springs and magical cloud shots to stop the enemy. But the key to getting the stars back is strategy. Are you good enough to beat Jiggarat?

Usually Alex Kidd provides you with a testing challenge that will last for months on end. Not this one, though!

The player takes the role of a chicken named Alfred who must find his way through bizarre levels full of balloons, telephones, cheese and other strange elements. While he is on the ground, Alfred can walk, jump, and peck balloons and ground switches. While he is in the air he can dive bomb enemies or springs. Dive bombing enemies will destroy them. Dive bombing springs will bounce Alfred much higher so he can reach platforms well above his normal jumping ability. If he does not hit an enemy or a spring, Alfred will get stuck in the ground for a short time.

To complete a level, Alfred must find and peck all the balloons. The last balloon will take him to a boss fight. If Alfred dies, he starts as an egg located at the last balloon pecked.

Alfred can receive a few power ups during the game. For one power up, he must answer a telephone in secret areas to make a giant flower give him a pot of jam. The jam gives Alfred the ability to shoot a bomb (about the size of Alfred himself) which bounces around the screen collecting things and hurting enemies. Another power up is a worm that spins around Alfred destroying enemies that it touches. You must find a can of worms to get this power up.

After the Meka-Chickens kidnap his friends, Alfred must chase them through a series of mazes. To clear each maze, you as Alfred must pop all of the balloons, the very last of which will transport him to the next stage. In each maze, you must avoid a number of enemies including Mino, Mag-Mine, Byron Snail, and Wind-up Mouse. However, you can use a dive or peck attack to eliminate some of the enemies. In addition to the bad guys, there are a number of power-ups in each maze: diamonds and eggcups will grant extra lives, while a can of worms will give you some extra defense. It's up to you to defeat the Meka-Chickens and save your friends in ALFRED CHICKEN.

Alice in Wonderland follows the plot of the 1951 animated Disney film of the same name. The game begins with the player as Alice following the White Rabbit down its hole. The plot is used to change the level design from stage to stage, and gives the player a more varied experience through gameplay.

The game changes the level design based on different stages from the film. Alice changes sizes throughout the game, which makes the platform gameplay feel different throughout the game. Levels often deviate from the main platform areas and include other types of sections: one example is where Alice is placed in her miniature form into a bottle and must navigate rapids.

A simple action/platformer from Face, gameplay is what one would largely expect from a platformer of this era. Alice can move left or right via the D-pad; she can also jump. She has several means of offense. As is common in many platformers, she can jump on top of most enemies to squish them. In addition, she can shout " イヤ " (iya/no) at enemies; this can be charged up for up to three levels of power, resulting in a bigger "iya". Alice can get out of breath if you shout too much, though.

Story: Alice is a simple country girl who loves fairy stories. One night while she was sleeping, she had a very strange dream. A white rabbit appeared, and begged for Alice's help; the dream world has been conquered by Mammon, and only Alice can restore peace and save the inhabitants of dream world! How can she refuse?

The basic theme of the game is "capture the flag (while protecting your own)". You can assemble offensive and defensive aids by picking up 'pieces' strewn about your half of the playfield. The pieces are color-coded, randomly created and distributed, and different objects require different numbers of pieces to assemble. Once you start assembling an object, you must finish assembling it (pick up enough pieces for it) and place it... or 'flush' the pieces you've picked up so far. Flush is mostly used for when you accidentally picked up the wrong color piece... or when you don't have the required pieces to assemble the rest of the object. A status bar shows what object is under construction, and how many more pieces are needed. Only one object can be assembled at a time. Once it is assembled, you must carry it to where you want to place or launch it and press the 'place' button.

There is a delay at the beginning of each round before the flags appear, and then a further delay before the midfield barrier comes down. Use this time to start assembling an offense or defense or both (this keeps the opponent from just starting each round by making a suicide dash for your flag). When the flags do appear, their placement is random, but within a small distance from the back wall of your half of the arena.

A round ends when an opposing flag is captured by a player, or when a player is destroyed by one of his opponent's offensive or defensive objects. There are all sorts of nuances to how the objects behave, how they score, etc.

Story:
A homicidal alien race is invading Earth, and the only thing that stands between them and world domination are a special forces team known as the "Alien Busters."

Gameplay:
Alien Storm is a side-scrolling beat 'em up. The game resembles Golden Axe, with a similar artistic style, three playable characters (a man, a woman, and a novelty character) and pick-up or power-up special attacks. All of the Busters are playable from the beginning of the game. There are 6 missions to complete with several stages, and each mission has the player blasting aliens, from the streets to the mother ship, where the mother of all aliens can be found. This task becomes increasingly difficult with each new mission, and the aliens are capable of hiding inside objects such as plants, postboxes, trashcans, drums, and other items. Each mission has an objective such as rescuing people or destroying a UFO.

Shapeshifting alien scum take over your city. Fry the slimy horrors and smash their bid for global conquest. Blast into action with fire blazers, electric whips and more!

The aliens are invading Earth, and it's up to the "Alien Busters" to wipe them out and destroy their creator. The Busters consist of Karla, Gordon, and Scooter. Each one of them have their own weapons and special attacks.
When you start the game, you can select any one of these characters to play as. There are six missions to complete (eight in the Genesis version) with several stages, and each mission has you blasting aliens all the way to the end, from the streets to the mother ship where you'll meet the mother of all aliens. Unfortunately, blasting these aliens will not be an easy task, as they get tougher in every mission, and are capable of hiding into objects such as plants, postboxes, trashcans, drums, and several others. Each mission has an objective such as rescuing people destroying an UFO.

When you deal with a few aliens, flying heads will appear, which you can shoot to collect life or energy (by the way, life is important to you, since if yours get empty, you're dead). However, rather than using your ordinary weapons, you can use the special attacks that are enough to kill aliens you currently see. These types of attack vary depending on the character you choose at the start of the game. For instance, Gordon summons a U.S. Air Force Jet that drop bombs across the street, while Scooter is able to teleport out of his present location, and leave a series of bombs that will blow up aliens on sight, he will then re-appear. However, using your character's special attack uses up a lot of energy, and if you have little or no energy, you can't use it.

At the end of some missions is an alien boss, which you must destroy in order to complete the mission. Also, at the end of every one, you have to enter buildings where you participate in a shooting gallery. The object is to kill aliens popping up from several locations with the building.

Massive 'save the human race' game, with cool visuals, but a bit easy. A sort of Golden Axe in the 21st century.

Based on the arcade game, Alien vs. Predator is a fun, though run-of-the-mill side-scroller from Activision. Taking the role of the Predators, you must destroy Aliens that are inhabiting Earth as you hunt them down through city sewers, streets, and buildings that contain the deadly creatures and their queens. Both the Aliens and the Predators are well-animated and easily useridentifiable, and the music and sound effects are suitably creepy (if not overly-repetitive). Boss levels could use a dose of adrenaline, while a two-player mode and the ability to play as the Alien would have boosted replay value. Like the Predators in the game, Alien vs. Predator blends into the genre's background when it should be leading the pack.

The Planet: Alpha Centauri 3, 8.6 Light-years from Earth.
Background: Originally settled by human colonists for the purpose of mining the rich ore deposits and shipping them back to the resource-depleted Earth.
Recent Events: A predator drone ship placed alien eggs onto the planet, which hatched and produced a fine crop of alien prey. The human population was eradicated in the process. A predator hunting party then arrived to hunt the aliens, but the number of aliens was underestimated and all the predators were, in turn, wiped out.
Theory: An alien queen is present, which would explain the larger-than-anticipated population of aliens.
Mission: It is now up to you, the last of your clan, to regain the predators' honor. And your own.

You control the Predator, who must proceed through a warehouse-like area to eventually find and defeat the Alien queen. Each level is laid out like a maze with a series of platforms and ladders. The Predator must find a key located somewhere in the level and use it to pass the exit door for the level (presented as a thick black block). A map is drawn at the top of the screen and is filled in as the player explores the level to aid in navigation. The Predator has an energy meter that starts at 50 and gradually decreases over time. Once the meter has emptied, the Predator's map will slowly be completely cleared. Some levels feature an energy power-up that will refill the energy meter.

An alien crashed on Earth and to get back to his planet he must find the four pieces of his spacecraft. Go into the several rooms and press the button. Hopefully, a piece of the ship will show on a corner of the screen. Pick it up and repeat the procedure until you can back home. Beware of the guardians, though, as they would follow you to trap you.

A Fantasy-themed arcade game in which you play a beautiful babe who's quite proficient in the art of magic. Her job is to embark upon a quest to find a lost meteorite. News has it that the falling star is the source of the evil that is spawning all of the evil creatures that have begun to plague the lands. Only one person is strong enough to fight their evil spells and save the day. That person is you - Alisia Dragoon.

One of many excellent Japanese-produced action games. The ladies will like this one, since you play a heroine with a cute morphing animal sidekick.

Three orbs turn the centurion into a beast, which in the original version were a werewolf, a thunder weredragon, a werebear, a weretiger, and the more powerful golden werewolf. Each beast has its own abilities, such as the dragon's flight and lightning, and the bear's petrification. After becoming the beast, the character can face the end-level boss, which upon defeat causes Neff to appear and remove the transformation orbs.

The goddess Athena has been abducted by the Lord of the Underworld. Her father, the great god Zeus, searched for a brave warrior strong enough to save her. He chose a brave warrior who died with honor & courage on the battlefield. Zeus raised the warrior from the grave and granted him the power to morph into a powerful, holy beast in order to do battle against the unspeakable horrors of the Underworld.

Altered Beast is a 1-player sideways scrolling beat-em-up. The game begins with the player controlling the human form of the resurrected warrior. During the levels the warrior will be attacked by a number of flashing animals. Destroying these creatures will result in an orb being dropped. If the player picks up an orb, he will begin his transformation from human into 'Beast'. Once 3 orbs have been collected, the transformation is complete. In beast form the player's character is much faster and stronger than in the human form, and also has the ability to throw fireballs at the enemy. At the end of each stage, after the boss fight, the player's special powers are taken from him and he once again reverts to human form.

The action in Altered Beast is untypically slow-paced and sedate for a game of this nature, but the game's premise and graphical flair helped to separate it from other rivals of the genre.

Alex and Stella from "Alex Kidd" are declared dead in the first stage of this game (Alex and Stella stones).

The small tail swinging gryphon that appears often in this game makes a comeback in "Golden Axe".
