A vertical scrolling shooter vaguely reminiscent of 1942, D-Force has players piloting a helicopter through hostile skies, blasting away at enemy ships, killer birds and other cannon fodder. The cannons, missiles and other weapons are upgradeable via power-ups, and a huge boss awaits players at the end of each of the game's 10 short levels. The action is typical for a game of this type, and the graphics and sounds are about average for an SNES title. What gives the game a shred of uniqueness is a special Exploration Mode, which often puts enemies on a different plane than that of the helicopter. This forces gamers to utilize the L and R buttons in order to adjust the altitude of their craft.

An offshoot of side-scrollers Darius and Darius II for the arcades, Darius Twin was the first space shooter for the Super NES to sport two-player simultaneous action. Gameplay is typical for the genre, with players grabbing power-ups, avoiding enemies, and firing lasers at everything that moves. However, there's no hard difficulty level, bosses move in simple patterns, and enemies don't fire as frenetically as they should, making the challenges less strenuous than in most other games of its type (such as Gaiares or Thunder Force III). As with the other games in the series, enemies are modeled after various species of otherworldly fish. The game looks and sounds a lot like Darius II, but it's a bit short, weighing in at 12 zones spread over seven levels with 24 possible paths. Compare this to Darius II, which has 28 zones spread over seven levels with 64 possible paths.

This is the sequel to Dark Lord. Its battles are similar in form to Treasure Hunter G--they use a power bar that drains with movement and action, except that battles are not restricted to 16x16 squares. Like a game that popularized the trend, Chrono Trigger, the game has multiple endings.

Designer and programmer of such Atari VCS classics as Pitfall! and The Activision Decathlon, David Crane's Amazing Tennis disappoints with its low view of the court, which makes it hard to see certain shots as well as the other side of the playfield. The graphics and animations are very nice, and there are plenty of realistic options (15 right- or left-handed players, three court surfaces, etc.), but slow-to-respond controls and that pesky viewpoint mar the game beyond recommendation.

Only a few days before Christmas is to occur the elves are scared away and all of the presents are stolen by an evil snowman, the Timekeeper, and Louse the Mouse. Players take on the role of a fireball-shooting Santa Claus who must save Christmas, which is now in doubt.

The game features a total of 24 levels that are divided up into three types. There are 16 levels of side-scrolling action that have players running, jumping, and shooting. Four more of the levels consist only of bosses, and the other four have players controlling Santa's sleigh.

Throughout his adventure Santa Claus will come across boxes that he can shoot to open. Inside of the boxes he might find an elf, an enemy, or a bomb. To help players defeat enemies a power-up is available that is in the form of a cup of coffee. When Santa drinks the coffee he turns into Anti Claus for a short amount of time. Anti Claus may not be as nice as Santa but he is much more powerful.

When controlling the sleigh, users will need to deliver presents to all of the good little boys and girls in Japan, England, Russia, and the United States. However, presents have to be obtained during the other stages first. There are plenty of presents in the other levels though, as a present can be found after any enemy is defeated.

Free your reindeer, rescue the scared elves, burn away the bad guys, and deliver the gifts so that everyone has a Merry Christmas in the Daze Before Christmas. Daze Before Christmas was only released in Germany.

Firebrand is on a quest to collect all of the elemental Crests, magical stones which preside over their respective elements (Fire, Earth, Water, Air, Time, and Heaven). It is said that when all crests are combined, the Crest of Infinity will appear, allowing its holder infinite power, and the ability to conquer any and all realms with it. However, during his quest, he is gravely wounded in a battle with the Demon Dragon in his efforts to claim the Crest of Heaven, and his nemesis Phalanx uses Firebrand's moment of weakness to attack him and steal all of his crests for himself, with the exception of the Crest of Fire which was broken into pieces in the fight (Firebrand still has one shard of it at the game's outset). Having fallen back to earth in the coliseum where he fought the Dragon earlier, Firebrand is forced to destroy him for good to survive, so that he can go after Phalanx and reclaim the Crests. Whether Firebrand wants them for power, glory, or some sort of revenge is never stated. However, during the True Ending, which you attain once you defeat the "Dark Demon", it is stated that "Realizing that his true power is not derived from the crests, Firebrand disposed of all the crests." With that information, it can be inferred that Firebrand was perhaps collecting the crests in an attempt to discover said "True Power".

The gameplay is a mix of standard platforming, with mild RPG elements and occasional side-scrolling shooter sequences. Each level can be played multiple times, and often the player has to revisit a level with new Crests to access areas, items and bosses that he or she could not before.

The player collects different 'crests' which, when equipped during the game, allow to change into different-ability Firebrands. Some of the possible powers are Earth, Wind and Water. The player also collects talismans, magic potions and other equipment during the journey.

The blond, overall-wearing, slingshot-packing brat that is Dennis the Menace is at it again in Dennis the Menace for the Super NES. After having his Garden Society meeting spoiled by Dennis, next door neighbor and curmudgeon Mr. Wilson declares that he does not want Dennis coming around ever again.

He takes this stand even though Dennis was merely trying to report that Mr. Wilson's coin collection was missing. Dennis decides to run away from home, but as he's leaving, he learns that his pal Joey and his doll-toting tagalong Margaret are missing. You must help Dennis find his friends and the coins.

Your first mission is to avoid Mr. Wilson and get out of his house before you get caught and are sent to bed. Along the way, you must pick up coins and find your slingshot and peashooter. Prior to picking up these items, your only weapon is a water pistol. Throughout the game you can pick up 1-Up icons for extra lives and wrapped pieces of candy to replenish your courage meter.

Next comes the park, where you must find five large coins while avoiding screeching birds, howling frogs, and pesky bunnies. You must also find your dog, Ruff, pull him in his little red wagon, use the wagon to reach high platforms, and avoid more scary creatures. Somewhere on a swing set in the park is Betty Sue Dubroski, a mean little girl who will try to pummel you with acorns.

Level three takes you to the boiler room, where you must find all the large coins while dodging fireballs, hot coals, dripping hot water and nasty little fire goblins. You'll also go to the gym, where Coach Beeferman is throwing medicine balls and baseballs.


After escaping the gym, things only get smellier. A trail of coins will lead you into the sewer beneath the streets where you must collect all the large coins while avoiding globs of plopping "sludge." A large fish guards the end of the sewer.

Finally, you must enter the woods and rescue Margaret and Joey from Switchblade Sam, a disreputable character if ever there was one. He is holding the kids hostage in case anyone tries to keep him from hopping aboard the next train out of town. Watch out for the constant barrage of apples he will throw at you. If you manage to defeat Switchblade Sam, Mr. Wilson will be eternally grateful and you will be the town hero!

Sporting international play, a training mode, World Cup competition, and two-on-two Beach Volleyball, Dig & Spike Volleyball is a relatively realistic V-ball simulation viewed from a slightly angled perspective, which is an improvement over the side-view found in Hyper V-Ball. However, when the ball is served, the screen scrolls too slowly, meaning its tough for the receiving team to maneuver his players into position. The game is also hampered by stiff and slow animation. On a positive note, there's a nice variety of shots, controls are solid, graphics are decent, and an inset radar shows gamers where all the players are located on the court.

In DinoCity, you'll mount a dinosaur ride through six levels of prehistoric action. Watch out for the Neanderthal Rockys, though. They're out to make things tough for you, and they're trying to make the dinosaurs extinct! You must stop them at all costs. As you ride your dinosaur, you can knock out any of the Rockys by stepping on them or giving them a nice punch, but if the situation calls for it, you can dismount and fight them yourself. Each level ends with a tough boss.

The game is viewed from above and played up and down the pitch, without the left-to-right option of Goal. Matches can be between 2 or 20 minutes, and the scanner which shows player positions on the rest of the pitch can be moved, re-sized or disabled. The method of triggering after touch onto a pass can be chosen as well.

The game features a variety of tournaments, including the full World Cup and its qualifying rounds, and the European Championships, or individual matches, as well as being able to configure a league or cup tournament to your own specification.

Only international teams are included, although their names can be customized. Unlike most soccer games of the time, player ethnicities are accurately depicted.

Players must drive their dirt track racing vehicle across a road rally. The car comes complete with a speedometer (in kilometers), a lap counter, and a lap time counter. There are a pre-determined number of chances to complete the game, like in Super Mario Kart and F-Zero. If the player is unable to defeat the game in those number of tries, then the player gets an automatic game over. A yellow smiley face shows up to track the performance of the driver. If it's smiling, then the player is winning. Otherwise, the player is losing the game.

Maui Mallard is a "medium-boiled" detective visiting a tropical island when the mysterious Shabuhm Shabuhm useridol goes missing. Shabuhm Shabuhm is considered the island's native guardian spirit, and unless the useridol is recovered, the whole island will explode. Maui is put on the case, and his investigations lead him through a creepy mansion to a native village, where Maui is thrown into a volcano as a sacrifice to the native gods. Maui survives the volcano, and the islanders put him through the "test of duckhood", which Maui passes, gaining the natives' trust. The natives tell Maui that the only one who knows the location of Shabuhm Shabuhm has long since died, and Maui goes through the land of the dead to escort his soul into rest. Ultimately, the location of Shabuhm Shabuhm is revealed, and Maui goes head-to-head with an evil sorcerer over the useridol. Maui is triumphant, and as a sign of their gratitude, the islanders name their island after their hero, despite their misgivings that the name "Mallard" has little potential for attracting tourists.

Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong are off to find the missing Donkey and Diddy, who disappeared while celebrating their victory over King K. Rool. Donkey Kong Country 3 plays very much like the first two games in the series, but there are some new features, namely the Brothers Bear. There are 13 of these helpful bears throughout the game, including Blunder, who gives out secrets; Barter, who swaps items; Barnacle, who runs the gift shop; and Benny and Bjorn, twins who run the ski lifts on the mountains. Also new to this series are Banana Birds, which help you save your progress.

As you progress through this game's many exotic tropical worlds, you (or you and a friend alternating) will control both Dixie and Kiddy Kong. Dixie's primary strengths involve her pony tail, which enables her to form a Helicopter Spin, which can be used to whip enemies or make incredibly long leaps. Kiddy's main asset is his strength: he can reveal hidden areas by breaking down doors and smashing the ground. Also, he can skim across water and power roll into bad guys. Both characters can swim, run, jump, swing, throw barrels, climb, and ride vehicles, such as Funky's hovercraft, which can be used to explore further sections of the map.

To enable you to reach places high places, you can throw Dixie when controlling Kiddy. When you are Dixie, you can throw Kiddy and steer him to drop down fragile holes.

Throughout this epic game, you'll find animal friends that you can ride, such as Enguarde the Swordfish, Squawks the Parrot, and Squitter the Spider. Enemies you must defeat include: the springy tailed Re-Koil; Nibbla, the hungry fish; Buzz the bee; Sneek, the sneaky rat; the coin-protecting alligator named Koin; Bristels, the rolling hedgehog; and Swoopy, the sharp-beaked bird.

In Donkey Kong Country 3, as in the first two games in the series, barrels play a significant role in the action. Star Barrels act as save points, TNT Barrels explode when thrown, Bonus Barrels let you play bonus round games, and Invincibility Barrels let you gain temporary invincibility. You'll find many other kinds of barrels as you go. Treasures and items are important as well. Bananas sometimes point the way, balloons and KONG Letters give you extra lives, and coins give you bonus points, let you play Swanky's games, and help you pay for items.

An under-powered port of the PC classic, Doom for the Super NES suffers from choppy player movement, heavily pixelated graphics, grainy visuals and slow gameplay. Less egregious, but still annoying, the floor and ceiling textures are totally absent, and many of the wall textures and sound effects are missing. From a practical standpoint, the worst thing about the game is its confounding lack of battery back-up and/or password capabilities. One welcome aspect of this version is that it lets players restart the current level at any time. Other positives include music that is faithful to the original, and smooth strafing controls (thanks to the SNES controller's nifty L and R "shoulder" buttons). Super NES owners, unforunately thy Doom has come.

Doom Troopers is a video game released in 1995 by Adrenalin Entertainment.

It is a platform shooter similar to the Contra series. The player assumes the role of one of two commandos fighting an evil horde of invading zombies and mutants. The game features eight different levels and the ability of two players to play cooperatively. It depicted blood and mutilations of the enemies killed. For example, the common enemies in the first level are usually decapitated before they die.

In the tradition of Street Fighter II and Art of Fighting comes Doomsday Warrior, which separates itself from the 2D fighting pack by letting winning players add to their various powers (such as vital power, which determines how quickly the fighter can recover hit points). Other distinguishing characteristics include the ability to choose your opponent and an easy mode, which makes this title great for beginners. Smooth controls and user-friendly fighting techniques help in this respect as well. Each of the seven available fighters has his or her own combination of basic punches and kicks, and each has individualized special moves, none of which are listed in the manual. The game lacks the brutality and explosive action of the best fighters on the market, and the weak sound effects and music are horribly inappropriate. However, the graphics are detailed and nicely drawn, and the gameplay is above average.
