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.

Based on the popular TV show, American Gladiators has players competing against Gladiators Ice, Gold, Gemini, and Laser in seven events: Joust, Wall, Powerball, Atlasphere, Human Cannonball, Assault, and the Eliminator. Graphics are grainy and cartoonish and repetitive music is used throughout most of the game. A two-player mode allowing players to compete in an elimination format is about its only saving grace. American Gladiators does provide minor enjoyment, though it mainly just frustrates and aggravates.

The game is about a cartoon mouse who must make his way to the Wild West based on the movie of the same name released back in 1991. The player must either fight or avoid cats and other obstacles as he strolls westward. The game is side-scrolling with a side-view of the action at nearly all times. The character is armed with a pop gun that can eliminate the bad guys using a non-violent approach to the Wild West genre.

Andre Agassi Tennis is a TecMagik-produced tennis title released on the Super Nintendo in 1993. While the game doesn't feature any Grand Slam licenses, the player will take a warm welcome to the Andre Agassi license from video stills in the introduction to the availability of him as a character.

Game modes include Practice, Exhibition, and Tournament modes. Practice mode is pretty self-explanatory as you can tune up on your finer points of your game against an opponent or with a ball machine. Exhibition mode allows play in normal and skins mode (where money is the object of the game) with the option to play on clay, grass, or indoor courts in one-player singles, one-player doubles and two-player singles and doubles. The final mode is the more competitive Tournament mode where players are challenged in sixteen-player knockout tournaments with the option of men's or women's games and types of court. On top of this, players can choose from eight players including Agassi with each player rated in the fields of speed and forehand, backhand, and serve in the areas of strength and accuracy.

Andre Agassi Tennis also features two difficulties, amateur and professional while the two-player option is always a winner.

They're zany to the max and make you laugh till you collapse. They're Animaniacs. Join Yakko, Wakko and Dot as they strive to put an end to Pinky & the Brain's quest for global domination. The mice have managed to steal the hottest script in Hollywood, which, after it has made billions of dollars, will enable them to eventually take over the world.

As the Warner brothers (and the Warner sister), it's your job to find the missing scenes of the script as you make your way through seven Warner Bros. movie sound stages, including "Adventure Kingdom," "Fantastic Fantasy Zone" and "Ocean of Doom." You control either Yakko, Wakko or Dot as the other two follow closely behind, even climbing on top of you if the situation calls for it. However, when one gets captured, you must rescue him (or her). Otherwise, your game is over after all three Warners have been caught.

Along the way, other popular Animaniacs from the animated series will make cameos. These include such favorites as Dr. Scratchansniff, the Goodfeathers, Ralph the security guard and the Warner Brothers' favorite medical assistant, Hellooooo, Nurse!.

They're animaney, totally insaney, in a video gamey, Animaniacs! (Those are the facts.)

The ancient land of Elemen was rife with chaos under the tyranny of the evil Empress Rimsala. A group of powerful wizards called the Card Masters combined their abilities to defeat Rimsala and seal her away. But her legacy would not be forgotten.

Decades later, political unrest in the kingdoms of Elemen turned into bloody civil war. As armies slaughtered each other on the battlefields, the Card Masters were persecuted and hunted down by the minions of Galneon, the former court magician of Wagnall, King of Lexford. Galneon was the man who had launched the original coup that began the war, but his motives were much more sinister than bloodshed. He sought the unsealing and resurrection of Rimsala, to unleash her ancient evil upon Elemen again. In the conflict, King Wagnall's two daughters disappeared. It was also the last battle for the Knights of Lexford, a trio of brave fighters sworn to Wagnall, which dissolved as the war drew to a close. Galneon assumed power and stretched forth his oppressive authority across Elemen, eliminating every Card Master found so that the revival of Rimsala could succeed without interference.

Ten years have passed since these events. The young protagonist Rooks is the son of the last Card Master to perish during Elemen's civil war, who was also one of the Knights of Lexford. The death of his father motivated Rooks to begin learning the art of the cards in earnest, but in a decade his minimal training has barely scratched the surface when word comes to his home village of Galia. Mysterious events are occurring all over the land, heralding a cataclysm. Rooks' path lies before him as he sets off to prevent the awakening of Rimsala, but can he fulfill his destiny as the last Card Master before it is too late?

Ardy Lightfoot is a anthropomorphic creature resembling a fox or cat. He is accompanied by his best friend Pec, a blue penguin. Pec can be used as a weapon, or can take the role of various other helpful devices like a hot air balloon or rock destroyer. If Ardy is hit by an enemy, Pec disappears, and can be retrieved back from a chest. If Ardy is without Pec, he can still attack by bouncing on his tail. He can also protect himself temporarily by hiding behind a mirror.

The story of the game is that the sacred rainbow has shattered into seven pieces and it's up to Ardy to obtain them all again. Whoever collects all seven pieces will receive one wish. An evil king named Visconti has already gotten one piece and is searching for the others. To this end he sends out various creatures and henchmen such as Beecroft, Catry and others. These creatures form the opponents for Ardy during the game. Ardy is assisted by friends along the way like the elder (unknown name), Nina, and a mysterious adventurer named Don Jacoby.

Arkanoid: Doh it Again gives the original Arkanoid an audiovisual facelift, while keeping the sweet and simple gameplay intact; guide a tubular ship along the bottom of the screen to deflect a perpetually moving ball into enemies or blocks at the top of the screen, destroying them. Some blocks yield power-up capsules, endowing your ship with shield or laser capabilities, extra lives, lengthening it, and more. A total of 99 levels are included, with nine bosses to defeat, multiple two-player modes and an Edit Mode for creating original levels. The only thing missing is a paddle controller, somewhat hindering the control.

Kouryu Densetsu Villgust: Kieta Shoujo is an RPG developed by WinkySoft and published by Bandai, which was released in Japan in 1992.

The main hero of this game is Shun, a teenager who lives in modern-day Japan. One day, when he was going back from school with his girlfriend Michiko, Shun noticed a strange red-eyed rabbit. When he tried to follow him, Shun suddenly found himself all alone in a forest clearing. He was immediately approached by a group of four adventurers who said they were user of a group called R.A.G.E. (Resistance Against God of Evil). Apparently, Shun was transported into a parallel medieval world, and an evil organization known as Vile was the one behind Michiko's kidnapping. Shun and his friends will now do anything to help Michiko and to destroy Vile!

Kouryu Densetsu Villgust: Kieta Shoujo is a traditional Japanese-style RPG. You travel on the world map, visit towns, buy equipment and items, descend into dungeons, and fight random enemies in turn-based combat viewed from a third-person "over-the-shoulder" perspective. The party can hold up to five characters. The characters level up in a standard way, and also get experience and new levels for their magical spells.

Asterix and Obelix return for a new, wackier adventure in the Roman Empire. In 50 B.C.E., the town of Indomital (where you reside) still holds out against the invaders. In a desperate attempt to rule the empire, Caesar builds a fortress around the city, making it impossible for anyone who lives there to leave. So take control of Asterix, Obelix, or both, to travel to various parts of the empire capturing a souvenir from each to prove that the people of Indomital still have freedom.

Released in 1995 and developed and published by super company Infogrames, Asterix & Obelix, the 2D platformer/action title based on the wacky comic of the same name, received a look similar to the comic. Each level is designed with 2D movement forward, back, and into the screen, allowing gameplay on various levels. Take on hordes of soldiers, enemies, and creatures as you journey through forests, over oceans, and through an entire continent on your quest to prove Caesar a fool. Jump and hack your way to bonus points by defeating enemies and collecting items on your travels. Asterix & Obelix can also be played in a two-player co-operative mode where each player controls a character. Asterix & Obelix, available in English, French, or German, offers three game difficulties, a password system, the option to turn off the music, and the choice of using either Asterix or Obelix as player number one.

Originally designed to take advantage of the Super NES' "Mode 7" effect for pseudo-3D backgrounds, Axelay is a futuristic shooter alternating between side- and vertical-scrolling stages. Pilot a sleek spacecraft while engaging an assortment of hostile threats on planets comprised of lava, water, clouds, rock, and more. In a departure from typical entries in the genre, Axelay does not feature collectible power-ups to enhance your ship's offensive capabilities. Instead, new munitions are automatically awarded upon completing certain levels. You must then decide which air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons to bring with you on subsequent stages. Choose from three difficulty settings and battle through six levels in total, each culminating in a boss fight, to save the galaxy from an alliterate enemy known as the "Armada of Annihilation."

Bahamut Lagoon combines RPG mechanics with squad-based combat. Characters have HP, MP (SP for fighter characters), EXP, equipment, stats and class-specific, SP-draining special elemental abilities very much like traditional console RPGs. The player can explore his surroundings, talk to people and visit shops when not in battle, though to a limited degree as there is no world map and no way to leave the current area.

The game's core is its turn-based battles fought on a 2d grid. Characters are assembled into parties of four and the player allowed a maximum of six parties, which are usually well outnumbered. The two opposing sides act in alternating turns so that each party can move once and/or attack once a turn. Attacks are divided into distant and close-up combat. In the former, a party uses a special ability (e.g. casting fireballs, throwing lightning, healing allies) of one of its user at a distance. The range and possible area of effect damage vary per ability. If the attacking party has two or more characters with the same ability, they join in the action to multiply its effectiveness. Distant combat results in less money and generally less damage, but the target cannot retaliate. Distant attacks can also affect the field; fire and ice ignite or extinguish forests and melt or freeze ice, etc. Close-up, each unit in two adjacent opposing parties can act once. Very much like Final Fantasy SNES combat, they can attack an enemy, use an item or a special ability (though these can't be combined and most only affect one target instead of all) or defend.

Dragons are the player's ace in the hole. They have their own stats and gain experience like normal characters do. In battle, each party has a dragon attached to it and draws a large portion of its strength from that of its dragon: if a party's dragon is slain, the party will lose the ability to use special attacks and class-specific abilities for the remainder of the map. The beast acts as a very powerful autonomous unit that moves after its party does and it cannot be controlled beyond very simple commands, e.g. "Come!" Out of battle, dragons will eat anything and raising them by feeding them items is an important part of the game. Feeding can improve their stats as well as affect their behavior on the field, and the dragons develop into new forms as they grow.

The player can change the characters in each of the parties, their formation as well as what dragon represents them at will.

Simulating Japanese survival war games, players must survive an assault from the bad guys. The closest equivalent that North American culture has to this game is paintball. Each character is assigned a Japanese code name and a main weapon by the player himself. Players can only move up to a certain amount of squares per turn and can only be hit a certain number of times before being killed. The game itself is divided into 24 different missions. Victory conditions vary from mission to mission, and may be anything from "kill the leader" to "free the prisoner and return to the escape point."

Unlike a medieval strategy game, rushing at an opponent with nothing but a knife is the way to get killed. Medium and long-range weapons are the speciality of the game. Battles can take place anywhere from desert islands to office buildings or shopping malls. All the opponents are seen wearing helmets that resemble those of legendary Star Wars villain Darth Vader.

Ballz is a fighting game in which the characters are completely rendered in "balls" or colored spheres. Choose from eight characters (Boomer, Bruiser, Crusher, Divine, Kronk, Tsunami, Turbo and Yoko) as you make your way through 15 futuristic arenas with eight bosses to fight. A villain known as the Jester has organized the contest and will insult you each step of the way on a background scoreboard. Move through the ranks of fighters until you come face-to-face with the Jester himself.

Characters rate from one to five in 12 areas, such as speed, punch damage, and charge attacks. Special moves include the ability to morph, perform aerial attacks, and cause explosions or cyclones. Characters all have between 7 to 16 special moves, and can taunt or beg for mercy to increase damage or replenish health, respectively. Options include setting the number of matches in two-player mode (up to 21), choosing one of three difficulty levels for the one-player game, and adjusting handicap for two-player fights. Ballz also features several voice clips to humiliate opponents. The game includes support for AT&T's planned but never-released Edge 16 modem peripheral.

This SNES game challenges Barbie's athletic ability as well as her fashion sense. On roller skates, a bike, or in a car, Barbie makes her way through various side-scrolling levels, avoiding obstacles such as birds and beach balls while collecting little hearts and special camera and purse icons. Grabbing a camera will switch the game to a special mode in which the player is shown a magazine cover for a limited amount of time, then must try to match Barbie's hair and makeup to those of the cover-girl model. The purse initiates a similar challenge, in which Barbie's outfit must match the clothes worn by the supermodel on the magazine. A "Junior Model" mode allows players to try the magazine-matching games without the side-scrolling action levels.
