Bomberman B-Daman

  Like a chess version of bomberman you always have to try and find a way to get all the bombs to go off to win each stage such as hitting the bomb at the centre to explode the other bombs. I like the idea of chess in a bomb game and the graphics look very good but for modern gamers it maybe get bit boring but it is the most puzzle  themed bomber game ever played so far and looks cool you have be many colours such as like black or golden or other colours of Bomberman.

The Blues Brothers

   A platformer based on the Blues Brothers movie from the past it's fairly fun but nothing to cool about it's very much sort of like the ultimate general style of platformer in the sense you could  swap the blues brothers for rabbits or alien or cyborg or anything else it would not look wrong here since it has so many different elements from the platformer styles of the past. Jumping can get bit annoying here for landing on enemies plus losing lives here is very common as well which does not help make the game fun I can see the logic behind them making it to get money from the popular of the Blues Brothers from the past if you just want a new platformer game to play it's fine but if you want a good quality game it's not right for you to me.

Blue Legend Shoot! Review

  Probably the best football game on the 16 Bit out of the Snes and Megadrive one which really blow my mind is how well it played from being a player or the goalkeeper and the keeper is able to save in a very pro level like a real goodkeeper which is not common during this time period. Most of the other football games for this time period or older often look very crummy or terrible looking and would often play bad such as one game you can play by shooting in your own goal or another one and still get goal points for each goal put into the next that was a fairly big problem in other football games during the 1990s time period or older as a well. It is quite fast moving almost like how a real football player would play the game you can pass the ball or take shots in a very efficient way. You can also take throws in the game very well here and allow you to possible score a goal from it all or land a goal  later on from

The Blue Crystal Rod Review

 A story based point and click game based I suspect on like the Arabic time of the past it reminds me of Amiga games during the 1990s for where the idea came from I suspect. Graphics look very high quality almost as good as like Playstation 1 may seem bit overkill but look at the graphic tell me what you think of them from just a display viewpoint I suspect a lot of people will find it very cool which can be useful if you into the very cool style of like Arabic based games which many people are all around the world since they created many fashions of the past or present a like.

Block Kuzushi Review

 I find the idea of having RPG elements in a breakout or Pong style of game very interesting and impressive to see in action. I  like how a lot of the levels in it are unique each time such as having a cannon system in the centre of the screen I felt was a very smart add-on idea. The music from the game is very into the 1990s style of Electronic here kind of like the Arcade places of the 1990s to 1980s for how the music sounds at the start of the game and the animation at the start of the game before it properly starts looks so cool to see overall plus the music has some good beats in to me. The idea of moving through some levels where you can pick where you go out of like left or right is a smart idea and the small amount of animation steps here is smart to see play out to me.

BlaZeon: The Bio-Cyborg Challenge Review

 A good spaceship shooting style of game  it  moves pretty fast moving and  I like a lot you can upgrade your ship if you have never played a game like this you will probably get killed often in this game. You have like a space station part that releases smaller ships to attack you which I found pretty cool to see it. You can see many different colours of weapons such as like silver or green among other colours. The strong 1990s Arcade looks incredible during this time  period was all about looking cool or dramatic for why so many games from this time period still have a lot of fans even today.

Blackthorne •BlackhawkE Review

 Very cool game kind of like gun version of like   Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee In a lot of ways the game is kind of like how Abe could work on a less advanced system in the idea you could not do special attacks or moves so you give the man bombs or potions to act as like his special powers and you can save humans like in the Abe storyline. You can get items from them which is useful to have in the game. Jumping or shooting is a bit hard here so it will require some skills to get good at here without dying to much. Monsters look like lizard  human or like alien they can be pretty fun to shot at or use bombs against such as like the more powerful enemies  in the game and I find it pretty impressive for  characters to laugh when you get shot so has in a way good amount of like comedy elements in it. I would recommend you use the practice stage before you play it if not you will probably get killed often when y

Bishoujo Wrestlinger's History: Beauty Girl Wrestling Review

 Like Wrestling Beatup based on popular classic TV show of the past. It is very fast paced for the gameplay which could make it be anywhere from fun to terrible to play overall but the animation style in the game gives is a very cool effect looks wise here. You play it as like Tag race which can make the game fun or complex to play since when you are about to pin one someone can  kick you when you can't finish the pin move which to me would make it  go from fun to annoying kind of fast here.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SuperS – Zenin Sanka!! Shuyaku Soudatsusen Review

 Street fight sort of clone here but with Sailor Moon character put instead of like Ryu or Ken or other characters here the main difference here is the other characters you fight against are to me to fast or smart at fighting for it to be much of an enjoyable experience here but the graphic looks good here and if someone was Sailor moon fan probably they like it. You get to win by winning two fights in the role if not you will lose against the other character whether it is a friend or CP character. Mars seems the better fighter to me out of her and Moon here but with the right practice, you could beat Mars her attacks are normally very strong plus good range attacks as well so as a whole she does not really have to have any fighting problems here to me if you pick her to play as .

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SuperS: Fuwa Fuwa Panic Review

  Like a Tetris clone but it has more easy gameplay it to and also your shot at like round ball shape mutli coloured like green or yellow you can do special moves. I like the idea of seeing the woman character move around when you shot at different areas which is smart to me to see in action. Graphic look very good or cool here but it's not to special about the game unless you were into these sort of puzzle games.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S: Kurukkurin Review

  Sort of like a more arcade of animation version of Tetris here such you can collect special items like swords here or other things and you can also perform a special flame attack that destroys some of the hearts . The hearts play the role of like the Tetris pieces but are shaped in heart-like plant style of shapes you can pick the characters from the Sailor Moon manga of the past which still is very popular and I was kind of impressed by how many games were made based on this Manga showing me it must had being a super popular Manga or TV show during the 1990s for why so many games were made of many styles from like RPG to beatup to puzzle based games the selection from one show surprised me a bit but it does prove it must have to be like cult classic during it's time period and still popular today I think. You move around a little animal kind of like the animation style of cats which can change the w

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S: Kondo ha Puzzle de Oshiokiyo! Review

 Another Tetris clone is just a Sailormoon version of it nothing really too special about it applies the same logic as the first version of the Tetris only improves if someone into say Sailermon then maybe it makes it look better or cool having the different women from the show as like player characters but not really any difference playing as each one except you see a different woman as your character as the only difference here.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon S: Jougai Rantou!? Shuyaku Soudatsusen Review

   Like an animation version of the street fighter game from this period but it is more fast so easier to lose here than the more common fighting game. Graphics look amazing for the time period and you play as all the women from the Sailormoon manga of the past which during the 1990s were super popular but still has a decent amount of fans even today. Flame attacks here look so incredible when the characters experience a flame attack as shown here. Animation effects in this game look incredible  when you hit or kick or throw or do special attack like flame or wind both look so present to ones eyes to me.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon R Review

 A very cool  beatup game I like a lot it has lady elements for how possible fighting may work for a woman compared to men which  I  felt was very smart and interesting to see it happen. The fighting style is pretty smart and cool the idea you can perform a shot style of attack to reach far away baddies in the game the idea of them being women or like cyborg style, some  of the characters is very nice thing to see in any game overall it does explain to me why Sailer Moon was such as popular thing during the 1990s it was before my time so I never experienced it in it's heyday but it still seems pretty popular today so credit to the woman who created the manga for where it all came from . Look at how good the animation efforts on her kicks or throw moves which looks so good and really blow my mind that simple 16 Bit system could produce like Animation of like good quality animation could be made for the system.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars Fuwa Fuwa Panic 2 Review

 Basically just imagination style of Tetris  but you compete against computer based players who often pretty hard to beat same sort of ideas as the more popular version of this game not to much to say about if you like the harder version of Tetris give it give it a god but except for that not to much except to say except you pick different lady characters in the game to give it bit more of personality feel  to it all.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Another Story Review

 Has some similar elements to pokemon instead of like the pokemon animals you have manga style of people to fight for you and have a nice harmless feel to the storyline like Pokemon had during this time period. Special effects very decent in and I like the idea of the first fight in the game called Persian attack found that very smart idea.  You get a diary to be able to save the game and also you have Black cat as like guide or helper which I found smart since a lot of people around the world love cats as pets or friends. The storyline is very deep for a game on the 16 bit time period which impressed me  kind of annoyed I never played this game as like a child instead of like adult. The battles is turn based game.  The graphic here look so cool during the battle for how both the character you play as and also the enemies look so cool here to me. The idea of dreaming the games and you play it out like you control your dream is a very smart plot twist in the game and the style in this p

Bishoujo Janshi Suchie-Pai Review

  It's just like a Japanese style of cards game if you are into it could be fun except for that a pretty boring game to me overall. biometer I would say the animation effects from the game are very impressive for the 16 Bit time period and the special effects you see going on in the game are very impressive to me overall but outside of the small number of people who like to play these sort of games it would be boring for most gamers now but the graphics are great here.

BioMetal Review

  Very cool  1990s style of shooting game the graphics look amazing it does show you the power behind the 16 Bit Snes showing you how so many games are still played by newer or older games a like over the quality and big part of why so many games are loved today is they really pushed the Snes console to there limits a lot of the time in many games look at how  many ships or gun lasers can display on the screen well and give credit to the creators of this Activision were a very well respected game company of the past. Bingo    I think the style here looks aimed from the look of the display that was very cool effect of the 1990s to make things look as good asp possible even with limit power behind the console as whole power wise but it still leads to many amazing . Bosses in this game look incredible and here you can see the amazing graphic of like desert area  reminds me of like the Dune movies from the 1990s time period for how things look the bosses move fast like then normal ships so

Bing Bing! Bingo Review

  Good graphics and impressive animation effects from the game and for the simple idea of like Bingo themed game they did a fantastic job I am not really fan of Bingo myself but if someone else is maybe good play for some of you will often see the woman next to the machine move or wink or blow kiss sort of sign at which is a good piece of coding work done by the videogame programmer to me here. Short term playing it is fine or cool but long term it would probably get boring unless you are big gambling or Bingo fan to me overall.

Bill Walsh College Football Review

  American football guy or American copy of rugby with padding on the graphic look pretty good on both Snes and Megadrive version of it you can pick teams and do the head and tails games to decide who will kick the ball or play the defense role here. A big problem with these sort of games actually the scoring points is very hard or complex since your players move slowly normally so you can't outrun the other team easily or in some cases possibly for why the games normally drag on for like forever .

Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball Review

 Like shit rip of Speedball but instead of making it fun you add in a Basketball element which alone was a super dumb idea the reason Speedball was so fun it was faced paced that was big attraction towards people playing it even in the modern times. throwing or attacking here is very sloppy at best meaning getting the ball to go into the Basket area is pretty hard over the low-quality coding work done here. Probably the Snes worst ga me they ever released for the console. The graphics look very much copy of a more famous version of this game. I would strongly recommend you never play this game.

Biker Mice from Mars Review

Like  Rock and roll race but in the mice form of the game and instead of you being on cars you are on bikes the graphics look fantastic here and it's quite a bit harder than Rock and roll racing cars. You can pick all the characters you want depending on your preference you can upgrade your car so has some sort of like small RPG elements in the game. Driving is like how real racing works to me for how things work in a racing game.  I think it would be fun for short term playing or long term playing and you can use weapons to attack the other bikes which is cool or interesting to see happen in the game you can be turned into like cookie sort of man who moves very slowly if you get hit by a small red ball. Shows how you can upgrade the Engine,Tire,Amor,shot the main parts of your motorbike.

Bike Daisuki! Hashiriya Kon: Rider's Spirits Review

  IT's like a motorbike version of Mariokart but without much of weapon use here by the motorbikes but you will see the weapons attack you or other bikes in it sometimes. The game can be fun the tracks are very small in a way to me take out some of the fun of it you can possibly overtake on the first track up to 5 then be able to complete it while everyone else is still stuck on like track 3 to 4 sometimes. The graphics looks pretty good very animation style of it all to me and has sort of feel a bit like the road of rash as well for you being able to be aggressive on the bikes which I found pretty cool as a whole . You get 9 points everytime you come in first in the race which is how you score in this game with second place getting less than 9 points each time.

Big Ichigeki! Pachi-Slot Daikouryaku 2 review

  Slot machine like an improved version of the first one such as it moves a bit slower and in a more logical viewpoint but still hard for a human to be able to stop in time and it has more of an animation 1990s style for the game when it starts over the sort of like wizard Animation style guy tries to burn you . I think the idea of seeing two or one people at slot machines does give it the impressive feel of being a real-life experience which I will credit again to the creators of this game they put in the real hard work to make a very cool like free version of gambling always thought a way for people to stop wasting money on gambling should be done on videogames where you can't lose any money for playing it after you make your first payment for it all. The idea of going gambling on the bike is kind of funny or strange for me but I like the idea they put into the game either way.

Big Ichigeki! Pachi-Slot Daikouryaku Review

 A stock machine which is like a gambling game but coded wrong so you can't play it well since it moves to fast so someone's eyes can't see it right plus it seems to spin backward. I think if the game was more fun or easy to use it could be a better game to play you can create your own stock machines which is an okay sort of idea. I would not recommend it unless you are really into these sorts of games over being so boring to play or even see in action.

Best Shot Pro Golf

 The game is mess of Golf and like management or RPG elements for the game it was an interesting game to see in action and I would recommend but i you can't understand Japanese you learn well enough to be able to play the game pretty fast. I am not much of fun of golf games but if you are into this type of sports game this could make good collection to your gaming collection but it was only released in Japan meaning getting a hard copy of this be fairly hard to get unless you live in Japan but still worth getting I will try and get this one myself physical copy at somepoint.

Big Sky Trooper Review

Very confusing and kind of silly system to it could be good game if they coded it with common sense when you start it you have no idea what to do it should provide you clear instructor how to find levels or planets or mission it tells you something which is pretty stupid The game has management sort of element where you in theory try and find the planets but finding them is like big nightmare and to me if they want something like this should tell you where to go if not it makes things way to complex. A Big Sky Tropper's best Friend! You can turn into a robot which is cool if the game was more like that it would be like 6 out of 10 instead of 1 out of ten for terrible complex ways they make playing the game and maze style of levels don't make things good but the firm did make other good games but the  graphics look good for the system to me as good part of the game to me .

Best of the Best: Championship Karate •Super Kick BoxingJP Review

 Done by someone who I doubt ever being in a karate fight before or a kicking boxing fight either you apply kind of like weird mix between both so it  does not make sense and we are applying as well using Boxing logic for how many hits someone can take which to me seems kind of silly overall. The graphic look good but the  controllers are pretty bad at landing attacks whether it be punches or kicks both are pretty bad but kicks are little bit easier to do you can do training which is needed to boost the character for winning the first fight being impossible without a lot of training to me seems kind of silly to basically wreak the possible long term playing by someone after seeing how bad the gameplay is for why I would not recommend this game to anyone really unless they want to see how not to code something well game wise . Training room here showing up it's to me more fun than the actual game  oddly enoug

Benkei Gaiden: Suna no Shou Review

 RPG game set in Japan year 1227 if someone could understand Japanese okay I suspect it would be a great RPG game the characters or design look very similar to how Shadowrun size of parts of characters was so many maybe the same programmer before both games were possible for the Snes one. It has a good long reach of like dungeon play setup  in parts of the games were you fight in turn based RPG setup which is good . Overall the idea of being boy or girl in the game and finding is a bit strange or unusual but I think it could have helped to make it popular possibly in the past Earthbound used the similar idea of a young boy to play the hero in the game which had good ideas behind both games to me as a whole and the graphic look very good and bit dark for game playing as a kid I found  a interesting idea behind it all. The graphic were impressive for the time period for why I suspect it had bit of following behind it all but for most non Japanese people not able to understand Japanese I

Beethoven: The Ultimate Canine Caper Review

 Has a strong Looneytoon feel to to how the dogs or other characters in the game look and the dog sound effects are very good quality for a 16 Bit system which is nice to overall. A good Platformer where the male dog has to bring the baby dogs back to the bitch dog in the storyline. I like the idea of barking being like a weapon which for me is very smart and cool to see happen plus pleasant to the ears as well. The programming work to be done very well and smartly such as when you carry around the baby dog it's smart that you have time to put down the dog then bark to hit the baddie in the same time that on early 1990s consoles could not normally do such good skill gameplay wise so would credit them highly here. Shows level being complete with both parent dogs and the baby dog.

Bébé's Kids Review

 Beatup setup as kind of like an African version of Rugrats for how things look but set in African American style it's overall pretty short beatup you can play as boy or girl it's bit small my biggest complaint about it plus it takes to many hits to known down an enemy the tools you get can make it little bit better but not much it has sort of like puzzle elements in it a little bit as well as just like game you can complete in like 35 minutes it's fun but for the game it should had being made a lot longer instead of like the free games you used to get from videogame magazines in the past best way I could explain it overall but if you into beats up it maybe fine for you and you can collect things from the enemies you beatup as well which has okay to feel I suspect from the streets of rage the idea came from .

Beavis and Butt-head Reviews

 The music from the game is heavy metal made it very popular like motorhead help it sell or Rob Zombie all these things helped make the game become so popular. The biggest complaint most people make it is to fast paced and to many enemies in the game for why so many people get killed you need a lot more health in this game for it to be better or a lot less enemies if they did that game would be much more fun but the humor in it's good fun like the movie or TV show as well. Just walking throw the level I got killed once this is meant to be on the easiest level which in normal game the wimp mode is as hard as hard setting in another game which is kind of silly when you have skateboards going front and bottom how can you expected to hit both when you can't shot top and bottom which again to me was very silly by the creators of this game you need unlimited health to be able to compete this game  without that it's basically impossible to do it which is kind of sad since it has a

Bazooka Blitzkrieg DestructiveJP Review

 A simple but fairly fast-paced shooting game where you just use a gun scope to destroy robot characters you can pickup extra ammo or bombs or tonic waste which can lower your health. Whenever you destroy a robot it blows up which is cool effect. Green and blue coloured with a very strong 1990s feel to the graphic it's not to fun a game for long-term gameplay but for short-term use it's fine overall. Breaking through the windows is fun or interesting since you can find other robots to shoot or sometimes tools .
