  1. Top o Nerae! GunBuster Vol.2 ( PC-Engine ) ( TurboGrafx CD )

    Top o Nerae! GunBuster Vol.2 ( PC-Engine ) ( TurboGrafx CD )

    £5.00

    Top o Nerae! GunBuster Vol.2 is a direct sequel to the first episode based on the Gunbuster anime series. It continues the story started in the first chapter, following the adventures of the young mecha pilot Noriko Takaya as she passes the test and is admitted into the fighting squad of mechas, sent on a mission to stop an insectoid race of aliens from destroying the Earth. Gameplay-wise, the second episode differs from the previous one in that it eschews even the rudimentary Japanese-style adventure commands. It plays more like a pure interactive movie: the player watches animated, voiced scenes and from time to time has to make a decision for Noriko, influencing subsequent scenes. The "stress meter" from the preceding game has been removed as well. The game also contains extras such as character and robot introduction, a radio drama, and a "rock-paper-scissors" game against Noriko. Learn More
  2. Vasteel   ( PC-Engine ) ( TurboGrafx CD )

    Vasteel ( PC-Engine CD-ROM ) ( TurboGrafx CD )

    £5.00

    The governing planet of the Vasteel Solar System is called Belose. Emperors of the Faracia dynasty have been ruling the planet for hundreds of years. However, the last emperor turned out to be rather unpopular with the people, and they began talking about changing the government system. Unexpectedly, the emperor becomes gravely ill and dies soon thereafter. His elder son, Faliall, is proclaimed the heir. However, Faliall's younger brother, Stefan, cares for the wishes of the simple folk, and is willing to change things. Hence, the bloody war between the two brothers for power and justice begins... Vasteel is a hex-based war strategy game in its core. The story mode takes the player (who controls either Stefan's or Faliall's armies) through various top-down maps, on which the two armies will try to annihilate each other, advance to a better position, conquer enemy cities, etc. There is also a versus mode, which allows two-player gameplay, as well as access to all the maps regardless of the story. The armies of the two princes are entirely robotic; even tanks, cannons, and spaceships are shaped like "transformer" robots. Both armies have factories, which can produce new robots, even several times per turn; each such productions costs money, of which there is limited amount. The player navigates the robots in turn-based fashion over the map. Combat ensues when two robots are on the same grid. Unlike in most games of this kind, the actual battles in Vasteel are interactive and action-based. The players must quickly move their robots and shoot at each other. Same applies to robots which enter factories and cities with the intention to destroy their protective mechanisms; the defending side uses stationary turrets to fire at the robot, while the latter tries to avoid them and get to the core before being destroyed.

  3. Dragon Slayer (THE LEGEND OF HEROES ) ( PC-Engine SUPER CD-ROM  )

    Dragon Slayer (THE LEGEND OF HEROES ) ( PC-Engine SUPER CD-ROM )

    £9.00

    An overhead, random battle, fantasy role-playing game, Dragon Slayer - The Legend of Heroes comes from Falcom, the company behind the Ys series. All the genre staples are here: a group of up to four characters, weapon and item shops...you know the drill by now. Battles are random and turn based, with the option of using either CD music or PSG which avoids that little extra CD access time (this also applies to village tunes). Later in the game, you are able to see the creatures moving about the landscape, making avoiding battles that much easier if you are just trying to get from A to B without hassle. The plot is hardly anything original, involving the player taking the role of the young prince escaping from his evil guardian and adventuring into the dangerous world outside. The storyline does however develop into something much wider and more dramatic as the game progresses, and is split into several chapters to help mark your progress. Learn More
  4. Bakushou Yoshimoto No Shinkigeki ( PC-Engine SUPER CD-ROM  )

    Bakushou Yoshimoto No Shinkigeki ( PC-Engine SUPER CD-ROM )

    £8.00

    complete with giant mechanical crab and Glico man, our man Kanpei stars in this platform game with variety levels and humour to match the Goemon series. The variety includes remembering which the prettiest girl on Osaka bridge is after they have jostled position for a one up. Or a dance section or ride on roller coaster both requiring fast reflexes. Or playing paper, scissors, stone and tossing a sizzling okonomiyaki pancake at the loser. Or mole bashing or rodeo riding..? The real peaches though come on the samurai themed level: slicing through bamboo mats or fighting attached to a kite. The platform sections are fun too: a walking stick power up turning you into an old man to beat everyone with the stick, or climbing up ninja grappling ropes, or jumping over raging bulls. The variety sections may require a little bit of Japanese knowledge, but are simple to work out through trial and error. Genki doesn't often compare to the seminal Goemon series, but this is real, tear jerking fun. Learn More
  5. Minesweeper  ( PC-Engine Super Cd-Rom )

    Minesweeper ( PC-Engine SUPER CD-ROM )

    £5.00

    Minesweeper is a minesweeping game, just like the one included in every copy of Microsoft Windows since ancient times. On a grid, the player clicks in a cell and hopes that it is not occupied with a mine. If it isn't, that cell is filled with a number, which indicates how many mines there are in adjacent cells. Using logical thinking, looking at the relations between different number cells, the player can conclude which cells contain a mine and mark them as such. Once all cells are revealed, the player progresses to the next minefield. Three main game modes are available, differentiated by the size of the minefield: 9x7, 12x12 and 18x14. Clearing a minefield takes the player to another one of the same size, but with more bombs to clear. A second mode is a mission mode ("voyage mode" in the PC Engine version), where the player is presented with 10 minefields each in 7 locations around the world. The first ones are very small, only 4x4, growing larger and larger from then on. What is different about the mission mode is that a few cells in the minefield are revealed from the start, putting the player's ability of deduction at test. The editor mode allows players to construct a minefield of their own, by inputting parameters of size and amount of bombs. The Game Boy version can also be played by two players via a link cable. The PC Engine (TurboGrafx CD) version contains an additional mode entitled "Cook's Quest", in which the player has to help a cook to escape from falling boulders in a cave, represented by mines on a familiar minesweeper field.
