|16t (Japan)||Sega||1991||Arcade||No, Round 8||3.5/10||15:47|
Same thing over and over, a bizarre platformer puzzler. Gets dull after a bit.
|3 Ninjas Kick Back (USA)||Malibu||1994||Platformer||Yes||4/10||1:30:12|
Below average platformer, not terrible. Can be a little frustrating at times. Reminds me of the Amiga.
|688 Attack Sub (USA, Europe)||Sega||1991||Sub Simulator||Kinda?||3/10||34:54|
So clunky and hard to manage, but could be fun if you're into that kinda thing. I beat a mission, good enough for me.
|AAAHH!!! Real Monsters (USA)||Realtime Associates||1995||Platformer||No||5/10||31:41||Just kind of average, hard to figure out, kinda unpleasant to look at/play||Spladderal|
|Action 52 (USA) (Unl)||Farsight Technologies||1993||Compilation||Yes||2/10||2:13:37||Not that great.||KateLibC|
|Addams Family Values (Europe)||Ocean||1994||Action RPG||No||4/10||1:38:03||Just kinda unfulfilling Zelda-clone. Funny dialogue at times!||RabbitDumpling|
|Addams Family, The (USA, Europe)||Ocean||1994||Platformer||No||4/10||42:20||Way too slippery and grueling, levels are too long.||GarbitheGlitcheress|
|Advanced Busterhawk Gleylancer (Japan) (Translated En)||NCS||1992||Shooter||Yes||10/10||1:00:07|
Amazing gameplay, creative and unique hazards and level design, cute and fun story, gorgeous graphics and music. An "average shmup" that goes above and beyond. Also the 100th game I've played!
Advanced Daisenryaku - Deutsch Dengeki Sakusen (Japan) (Translated En)
|Sega||1991||TRPG||No||1.5/10||20:27||Rather bad Fire Emblem-esque WW2 simulator, mostly just dull.||Lizstar|
|Adventures of Batman & Robin, The (USA)||Clockwork Games||1995||Platform||No||4/10||43:49|
Kinda drab beat-em-up, super difficult, kinda the same thing over and over.
|Adventures of Mighty Max, The (USA)||WJS Design||1994||Platform||No||2/10||47:27|
Shockingly terrible, very stiff and awkward, sound effects are laughable, graphics are laughable, gameplay is laughable, it's just bad. And VERY frustrating, sometimes, with the really really awful level design.
|Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends, The (USA)||Imagineering||1993||Platform||No||3/10||36:56|
Terrible controls, boring music and graphics, EXTREMELY rude and memory intensive gameplay. It was described as "I WannA Be The Guy", but with Rocky and Bullwinkle. The story and charm of the game is actually pretty good though, and funny.
|Adventurous Boy - Mao Xian Xiao Zi (China) (Unl)||Gamtec||1993||Shooter||Yes||6/10||32:00||Literally just a bootleg Fantasy Zone, but shockingly fun?|
|Aero the Acro-Bat (USA)||Iguana Entertainment||1993||Platform||No||3.5/10||47:01|
Frustrating, ugly, awful music, the controls and hit detection are atrocious, the double jump roll is so hard to aim, and it is VERY easy to die.
|Aero the Acro-Bat 2 (USA)||Iguana Entertainment||1994||Platform||TO FINISH||52:04||GarbitheGlitcheress|
|N/A||6/10||1:30:00||A pretty alright, but hard to decypher Airport Simulator.||SuddenlyCassie|
|Aerobiz Supersonic (USA)||Koei||1994|
A pretty alright, but hard to decypher Airport Simulator. An upgraded version basically.
|After Burner II (USA, Europe)||Sega||1990||Shooter|
|Air Buster (USA)||Kaneko||1991||Shooter|
|Air Diver (USA)||Asmik||1990||Shooter|
|Aladdin (USA)||Virgin Interactive||1993||Platform||Yes||8/10||56:44||Great Platformer, very good music. A few frustrating parts.||Clareic|
|Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle (USA)||Sega||1989||Platform|
|Alien 3 (USA, Europe)||Probe Entertainment||1993||Platform|
|Alien Soldier (Europe)||Treasure||1995||Platform||Yes||10/10||3:00:00||Gliitchless|
|Alien Storm (World)||Sega||1991||Beat-'Em-Up|
|Alisia Dragoon (USA)||Game Arts||1992||Platform||No||7/10||1:26:08|
Really fun game design and concept, plays well, but loses two whole points on a terribly designed level most of the way through that made me throw my controller in disgust and anger.
|Altered Beast (USA, Europe)||Sega||1989||Beat-'Em-Up||Yes||5.5/10||46:07|
People hate on this game, but I think it's not that bad. It's an okay arcadey beat em up, repetetive, but short, and very hard.
Weirdly unresponsive, and confusing about what the game wants you to do to progress at any specific point, but there's a glimmer of a good game in there.
|Arcade Classics (USA, Europe)||Al Baker and Associates||1996||Platform||N/A||3.5/10||35:00|
The original games are amazing classics, and for the most part these are just not good ports of them. The graphics are shockingly bad, the controls have weird input lag and... inertia, kinda? The cursor on Missile Command is BONKERS, and the physics on Pong are just straight incorrect. But, eh, they're still arcade classics.
|Arcus Odyssey (USA)||Wolf Team||1991||Platform||N/A||7.5/10||34:32|
Game crashed, passwords don't work, was having a lot of fun before it crashed, so that sucks. Kinda Gauntlet-y
|Ariel the Little Mermaid (USA, Europe)||Bluesky Innovations||1992||Platform|
|Arrow Flash (USA, Europe)||Renovation||1990||Shooter||Yes||7/10||32:42|
A good shmup, just not quite exciting enough. Some levels are a tad dull, but, most of the game keeps you entertained for the short amount of time it's there. Good difficulty curve, cool gimmicks (the switching between ship styles and super attacks are neat!).
|Art Alive (World)||Sega||1991||Puzzle|
|Art of Fighting (USA)||SNK||1994||Fighter|
|Asterix and the Great Rescue (USA)||Sega||1994||Platform||No||7.5/10||1:00:52|
Very cute, lots of charm, well made and designed, but the concept of fail and learn wears on you, and the levels are just genuinely really frustratingly difficult.
|Asterix and the Power of the Gods (Europe)||Core Design||1995||Platform|
|Atomic Robo-Kid (USA)||Treco||1990||Shooter|
|Atomic Runner (USA)||Data East||1992||Shooter||No||3.5/10||33:14|
Frustrating and confusing controls that end up killing you, bad auto-scroller design with enemies you can't avoid or dodge.
|Awesome Possum Kicks Dr Machino's Butt! (USA)||Tengen||1993||Platformer||No||1/10||N/A||Gives horrible motion sickness||N/A|
|Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II (USA)||Sega||1992||Driving|
|B.O.B. (USA, Europe)||Chris Gray Enterprises||1993||Action||No||5/10||30:00|
A slightly charming platformer, but the charm and gameplay overstay their welcome surprisingly fast; it gets tiring after the first 30 minutes, a slog to get through the weird momentum and outdated jokes.
|Baby's Day Out (USA) (Proto)||Designer Software||1994||Platform||No||3/10||45:43|
Not as bad as I was led to believe! It's bad yea, but not THAT bad. It's a bad puzzle game with slippery controls, bad sound design, and not much else.
|Back to the Future Part III (USA)||Probe Entertainment||1991||Platform||No||3.5/10||39:39||Relentlessly difficult, controls are confusing, good presentation though.||Coralcola|
|Ball Jacks (Japan, Europe)||Namco||1993||Platform|
|Ballz 3D - Fighting at Its Ballziest (USA, Europe)||PF.Magic||1994||Fighter||No||5/10||15:47||Not as terrible as people say it is.||Lunchonbreak|
|Barbie Super Model (USA)||Tahoe Software||1992||Platform|
|Barbie Vacation Adventure (USA) (Proto)||Software Creations||1994||Action||Yes (?)||3/10||28:20|
Absolutely mindless and brainless, with none of the charm of other small kids games. Just a collection of not great mini games.
|Bare Knuckle III (Japan) (Translated En)||Sega||1994||Beat-'Em-Up|
|Barney's Hide & Seek Game (USA)||Realtime Associates||1993||Platform||Yes||11/10||9:00||Impossible to overcome, simply perfection||Glitched_Goddess|
|Barver Battle Saga - Tai Kong Zhan Shi (China) (Unl) (Translated En)||Chuanpu||1996||Role-Playing|
|Batman - Revenge of the Joker (USA)||SunSoft||1990||Platform||No||4/10||41:00|
Really stiff gameplay, the weapon choices are ridiculous (some are just straight up worse than the p-shooter), bosses are far too monotonous, levels and gameplay is frustrating and too difficult, but at least you get unlimited continues.
A bit stiff, hard to aim punches sometimes, but good level of difficulty, fun throughout, and excellent music (as it IS a Sunsoft title)
|Batman Forever (World)||Probe Entertainment||1995||Platform||No||2/10||38:50|
Shockingly bad. It's intensely boring beat em up combat on top of a clunky to control character with famously confusing and convoluted controls.
|Batman Returns (World)||Sega||1992||Platform||No||3/10||42:28|
Awful controls, super stiff and confusing, combat is awful, your attack is always too short, and theirs are too long, so you take a lot of damage that's basically not possible to avoid, some bosses and level designs are just bullshit, I had to be told where to go in the mall level, and the ball rolling section is basically impossible, so heck this
|Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)||Vic Tokai||1993||Shmup||Yes||9.5/10||49:49||Only held back by flashing epilepsy lights||Horuhe85|
|Battle of Red Cliffs, The (China) (Unl)||Unknown||1994||Beat-'Em-Up|
|Battle Squadron (USA, Europe)||Innerprise Software||1990||Platform|
|BattleTech - A Game of Armored Combat (USA)||Malibu||1994||Platform||No||7/10||38:55|
Hard as balls, sometimes hard to tell where to go, but it looks and sounds great, and is a cool concept
|Battletoads & Double Dragon (USA)||Rare||1993||Beat-'Em-Up|
|Beast Wrestler (USA)||Renovation||1991||Platform||No||3/10||21:11|
Its a wrestling game, but with cute and strangely sexualized monster men, this game is very horny. But because its a wrestling game, you can't control it, and it makes no sense. I could kind of beat two people, but the third person was immune to all my attacks except two, and just barely, you had to position yourself perfectly. It made no sense.
|Beauty and the Beast - Belle's Quest (USA)||Software Creations||1993||Platform||Yes||3.5/10||55:56|
Really bad hit detection, terrible music, and kinda poorly designed samey boring levels. But its not THAT bad.
|Beauty and the Beast - Roar of the Beast (USA)||Software Creations||1993||Platform|
|Beavis and Butt-Head (USA)||Radical Entertainment||1994||Adventure||No||3/10||27:07|
Ugly as sin, frustrating to play, and a bad adventure game that gives no hints on where to go or what to do.
|Beggar Prince (World) (Unl)||Super Fighter Team||2006||Role-Playing|
|Berenstain Bears' Camping Adventure, The (USA)||Realtime Associates||1993||Platform||Yes||5/10||19:00|
Good for kids, I guess. Pretty dull platformer, slow and methodical with weird momentum physics involving your jump
|Best of the Best - Championship Karate (USA)||Electro Brain||1993||Fighter|
|Beyond Oasis (USA)||Ancient||1994||Action RPG||Yes||9/10||5:50:46|
Good Zelda-esque game, some very frustrating moments (The Nature dungeon boss, the final dungeon). Hit detection was off at times, but it's a beautiful presentation
|Bible Adventures (USA) (Unl)||Color Dreams||1995||Platform||No||2/10||32:00||Barely functions, controls like rancid butter, and aaaawful music.||Lizstar|
|Bill's Tomato Game (USA) (Proto)||Tempest Software||1992||Platform|
|Bimini Run (USA)||Nuvision Entertainment||1990||Platform||Yes||7/10||55:49|
Kinda funky, the hit detection is a bit off, but the general idea and prowess of it shines through, and it's a fun time, though it gets VERY hard to dodge attacks by the end.
|Bio Hazard Battle (USA, Europe)||Sega||1992||Shooter||Yes||7.5/10||1:31:00|
Good shmup, very interesting style and design, kinda gross, but I like the sting ray. Very unique. Pretty hard, but over all, fun.
|Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon (Japan)||Angel Studios||1994||Beat-'Em-Up||Yes||6.5/10||1:07:51|
An okay beat-em-up. Thankfully very forgiving on the continues. Being able to choose so many characters is nice. Mars has an OP fire attack that makes the whole game slow, but "easy", except for the final boss, which is a bonkers fight. Actually, most characters have this attack, except Mercury
|Blades of Vengeance (USA, Europe)||Beam Software||1993||Platform|
|Blaster Master 2 (USA)||Software Creations||1993||Platform||Yes||4/10||2:45:00|
Not as bad as people say, though pretty awful at parts. Its a weirdly fluctuating experience. The top down areas are AWFUL, but the rest is survivable, barely passable.
|Blockbuster World Video Game Championship II (USA)||Various||1995||Miscellaneous||Yes||5/10?||10:00|
It's two games, NBA Jam and Judge Dredd, but time-limited, and you try to score as many points as possible. Similar to NES World Championships, it's not really meant to be played as a game.
|Blockout (World)||California Dreams||1991||Puzzle|
|Body Count (Europe)||Probe Entertainment||1994||Platform|
|Bomboy (China) (Unl)||Gamtec||1993||Action|
|Bonanza Brothers (USA, Korea)||Sega||1991||Arcade||Yes||7.5/10||36:20||Good classic Arcade fun. Great with two players!||Gliitchless|
|Bonkers (USA, Europe)||Sega||1994||Platform|
|Boogerman - A Pick and Flick Adventure (USA)||Interplay||1994||Platform||No||7/10||57:28|
Not as bad as people say, looks great, plays well, sounds great, it's just disgusting.
|Bram Stoker's Dracula (USA)||Traveller's Tales||1993||Platform||Yes||5/10||6:08|
Strange design, but not terrible. Just average as a platformer. Has problems with I-Frames
|Brutal - Paws of Fury (USA)||Imagitec Design||1994||Fighter||No||2/10||32:00|
Obscenely brutal, strange sexualization, wonky special moves system, and just overall not good.
|Bubba'n'Stix - A Strategy Adventure (USA)||Core Design||1993||Strategy|
|Bubble and Squeak (USA)||Audiogenic||1994||Platform|
|Bubsy II (USA, Europe)||Accolade||1993||Platform||15:00||RamXE247|

|Buck Rogers - Countdown to Doomsday (USA, Europe)||SSI||1991||Strategy||No||6/10||1:10:00|
It's a Gold Box Advanced DND game, but with a Buck Rogers skin. Weirdly detailed, pretty good art, bad music, bad art at times, and just a tad dull, but if it's the kinda game you like, it's a good game in that genre.
|Budokan - The Martial Spirit (USA)||Electronic Arts||1990||Platform|
|Bug Hunt (World) (Unl)||Lazy Brain Games||2015||Action|
|Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble (USA)||Atod AB||1996||Platform||No||2/10||22:50|
Literally softlocked myself on stage 2. Some interesting ideas, looks alright, but gives bad motion sickness, frustrating as hell, slippery, and of course, the afformentioned softlocking in a "barely able to see anything" dungeon
|Burning Force (USA)||Namco||1990||Shooter|
|Cadash (USA, Asia)||Taito||1992||Action RPG||No||4/10||40:00|
Brutally difficult, as all Cadash ports are. Kind of unfinished, missing a lot of features.
