In 1943, our main fleet began an intense battle off the coast of Midway Islands.

Help our fleet defeat the enemy.

The NES version varies from the arcade version somewhat, introducing the gradual improvement of the player's plane by several "augmenting" power-ups that never go away. These include the plane's offensive and defensive powers, the energy level, its special weapons and their durations. This somewhat alters the game balance and a different tactic is required to survive the game. For example, initially very few weapons are made available; more can be attained from power-ups by putting statistic points into "special weapons ability". Likewise, there are statistics for offensive ability, defensive ability, total energy, and special weapon time limit. The statistics modify the rates of change for the energy reserve, damage inflicted, and special weapon time limit.

Ace of Aces puts you in the cockpit of the Mosquito, the maverick RAF fighter bomber of World War II. It's white-knuckle aerial combat simulation, combining the exhilaration of flight with the gut-wrenching pressure of enemy confrontation.
During World War II, Mosquitos downed 659 enemy aircraft and 500 V-1 Buzz Bombs. Your only allies are your wits, your weapons, and your radar. Are you equal to the challenge?
Down the Nazi bombers, sink the U-boats, outrun the V-1 Buzz Bombs and stop the enemy trains to release the POWs. Should you fly through a storm or around? Navigate carefully, consult your intelligence reports and maps to make a decision. Choose your weapons and fuel wisely--once you're on a mission there's no going back.
Select one mission or any combination. If you complete all four successfully--and make it back alive--you'll become the most distinguished flight veteran of World War II--the Ace of Aces!

How would you like to fight a war, with all the resources of a modern military force at your disposal? That is the basic premise behind this popular series of Japanese strategy sims - so popular that at least one port was made for every major gaming console and home computer system in Japan at the time.

Advanced Daisenryaku, aka Advanced Military Commander is a true historical wargaming sim, as you get to take on the role of Adolf Hitler as he conquers Europe during the initial stages of World War II . If you are a strategy buff, then you will go ape over what are the most sophisticated wargaming titles to be found for the platform. If you are an arcade gamer, look elsewhere - you will get bored fast.

Your best girl Annabelle has been kidnapped by the evil Gordon, the "gangster king of Bourbon Street", and as Bayou Billy it is your job to get her back! Bayou Billy as an arcade action game with three different types of gameplay: fighting, shooting, and driving. The fighting sections take place in both swamps and cities, where you can punch, kick, and jump kick the numerous enemies (and swamp creatures!) you will encounter. The shooting section can be played with either the Nintendo Light Zapper or the controller. You have a limited amount of ammo to get through the level, and if you run out you lose a life. In the driving section your jeep is armed with machine guns and grenades to help get past the many enemy vehicles on the way to your destination. There is a total of nine levels, or you can play in the practice mode which lets you choose to play a fighting, shooting, or driving round individually.

From the outside, Airwolf looks like a sophisticated executive helicopter. Slick. Self-contained. Harmless. Which means it can slip in and out of airports without causing much suspicion.

But from the inside, its true military strength is revealed; walls of computerized controls, a satellite tracking system for locating enemies and allies, and a weapons guidance system for launching missiles and firing machine guns.

Alien Crush features a science fiction theme reminiscent of the film Alien. Essentially, the player is "fighting" against the aliens with their pinball skills.

The playfield of Alien Crush consists of two main screens arranged vertically, with a pair of flippers at the bottom of each. The play stops momentarily as the ball shifts from one screen to the next. There are also several hidden/bonus rooms. These hidden rooms mainly involve destroying all the aliens (or several waves of aliens) for bonus points.

The player is given the choice of a fast or slow ball speed and two different music tracks.

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".

The game play is similar to that of a board game, like Pictionary. Either playing as a pair of women's shoes, a horn, an ice cream cone, or a Teddy bear, the game slowly draws a picture and the first person to buzz in and guess the correct answer moves forward on the game board. The number of spaces the player moves depends upon the number on the die, which counts down from 6 as the picture is drawn. Once a player correctly useridentifies a drawing for each of the four categories on a level, that player literally rises to the next-higher level. On the Easy and Medium difficulty levels, the first player to complete the third level wins the game. On the Hard and Very Hard difficulty levels, the first player to complete all four levels wins. The fourth level is useridentical to the third, except that some of the spaces are removed, and if a player lands on one of the removed spaces, the player falls back down to the third level.

A long period of time has passed....and the dimension-controlling force "Doh" has again come back to life.

Occupying the huge space ship "Xorg", it has entered our universe from a different dimension.

"Mixtec" arkanoid type space ship has launched the craft "Vaus 2" to make a preemptive attack on "Xorg"....

Similar to the original but with more power-ups and harder puzzle to break through.
