Dig & Spike Volleyball •Volleyball TwinJP

  Pretty slow paced Volleyball if you are into this sort of game it maybe fun for you but for most people be pretty boring too place for the speed here also once you can win it nothing much else to learn here so there is lack of a creative way to play this as a whole but it could be fun to fill in like 10 to max of like 20 minutes max to me here.

Dharma Doujou

 Like an animation version of the Tetris game but with like high end storyline for the game which is kind of unique you use like your hammer to hit the pieces until they  match three times before the baddie can beat you to win each stage and you can pick as two different Japanese style of characters. It has many similar ideas to more popular Tetries but this being common practice to keep remaking it even happening today in modern times . The graphics are really pleasant for the eyes here and the animation looks incredible and has a bit of like Amiga feel to the look of design to me here. 

D Force ForceJP

  A very fast paced ship shooting game where you keep collecting new weapon upgrades making you go from a simple attack into a much more impressive style of attack here. I think for some people this maybe to hard for them to be able to win easy here but for someone very into this game type then it would be a lot of fun.  The boss battle are a lot of fun here like all kind of boss fights from the 1990s time period that was something 1990s head as the best overall and the fast moving parts of the game make it something you need to focus as much as possible or risk dying here .

Daioh Gale Dezaemon: Kaite Tsukutte Asoberu

  A fun shooting game where you play as like ship which can fire at enemys which you can see different weapon attacks such as like rocket style of attacks or like automatic green attacks or when you pick up items with like shield for defense which is pretty cool to see here. Fast-paced game if someone into the retrogame of the past from like 1990s to 1980s then I am sure someone will get a lot of fun of this sort of gameplay in most cases and the idea of picking up new weapon or powers is pretty cool idea from this game and most of the bosses are simple like modern big spaceships which are cool to see and the enemy ships often look pretty similar which is nice if you ae into these sort of design for the nemesis here.

Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf

 Music sounds terrible to give me almost like a sore head when I first heard it so would recommend game without the music  here. You will fly around and also try and save people you find by picking them up I found that pretty cool idea to put into a game as like a points system if you pick up more give you a better rating in the game and also the idea of the firing of at alone soldiers is pretty smart to put into the game. You will get mission ideas like the first level is to destroy the radar system you will have to take down the air guns or risk getting your helicopter shot down in some cases it's pretty fast paced.

Derby Stallion '98

 A slight upgrade to the last game they made such you get more ways to spend money on horse related  assets or horse upgraded or breed horses and you see extra stable worker here. If you are into this sort of jockey style of games it maybe fun for you but outside of that area has the same boring parts like all the other games made by this firm as as whole.

Derby Stallion '96

  You manage like a horse stable to try and get the best results for your horses when you race them to try and win awards for each of them with you having to come first or high as possible each as much as possible to get to the top of the ranking in reach for management money. I don't really see any attraction to these games but in Japan they were pretty popular some people claim this was the game that inspired people to create harvest moon not sure if that's true or false but if it's true be good thing to come from such boring games to me .

Derby Stallion III

Before the game starts you see a horse running without anyone riding the horse kind of like Disney style from the movies of the past for how good the videogame looks here. You have management  elements here pretty similar to number two but the graphic is bit better here plus racing now around you go around a corner which is kind of cool to see happen plus you have to buy upgrades to your horse or the stable to make your horse ride more efficient when you race. I think it could be okay for some people but still to me a mostly very boring game to play as a whole .

Derby Stallion II

  I think the idea of making it into like management plus horse racing  game is good where you play both roles from the manager to the actual jockey is pretty smart to me as a whole.  Graphics look good here to me as a whole and it could be fun for people into horse racing but this normally only includes a very small amount of often older people or set of often rich people outside of this small amount of people I doubt it would have much of fun for many people around the world. The management elements gives it kind of like mini themepark way to enjoy the gameplay here but it is to limit to make it much better than a standard horseracing game to me as a whole .

Derby Jockey 2  Like the first game it's pretty boring here not a lot going on but the sound is pretty good for horse riding game since it does sound realistic to me as a whole .   Short term gaming would be fine on it but for most people, I think anymore than 30 minutes be a bit much for people to handle since it would get boring pretty fast I think for the majority of the people in the world since not a lot of stuff to do here it's kind of like the racing part of Final Fantasy 7 for part of the time it was fine but the main game it's not fun to me for why this game does not do well for most gamers.

Der Langrisser

    You start the game answering some questions then it picks the right character for you to be as here he would be   horse rider solider  with good speed and strong attack but is weak against spears so it has some battle strategies behind combat which is cool to experience .  It reminds me of three different games here Advanced Wars for how  you move about or perform attacks but in knight form and it also reminds me of like Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis for both applying same story of gameplay style and strong RPG elements here is nice to see in a snes game and you can collect items from within someone house such as stats which boost attack power or health potion or other possible items from within a building which gives you the possibility to find things in each level you play as you have to protect your command if you lose that person you lose the level or mission as a whole but losing one of your soldiers does not cost you the game directly this is why it is recommended to take

Derby Jockey: Kishu Ou heno Michi

Horse riding games I find them pretty boring  but for some people may enjoy playing the same usual logic try and get your hose to move the fastest so you, in theory, win the race once you can master this sort of gameplay nothing really ever changes again and it's in the Japanese language. The reason so many of these games exist online is that horse riding became popular in America and Japan connection.

Dennis The menace

  I think probably the world worst platformer ever made here is some key problems with it  Jumping does not kill enemys Your water gun is worthless to kill enemy overall Enemys are way to common Jumping in platformer should kill that is the point of having a jumping system in place in this sort of game so stupid not having it here. Water gun is terrible can't kill or do serve any purpose really from gameplay logic to me overall which is to me pretty weird and silly if you want a lot of enemys in the game then make the killing or hitting enemys easy if not stupid here to me as a whole. Graphic look good but except for that nothing else is really fun or decent here for why I belief it's worst platformer or one of the worst gamers for the 16 Bit time period I don't think anything is overall even slightly worse here as a whole if you kick out the graphic perks nothing else for good point to me.

Demon's Crest •Demon's Blazon Makaimura Monshō-henJP

  Graphic look great here in most Snes game which is impressive to see here. Gameplay is semi good the things I hate is the controls if it was more easy to fly and attack the  game would be way better only being able to  shot one weapon attack limits the game a lot from being more fun and just more pleasant to play as a whole to me such as I found the first boss kind ,of hard since there controls low end end here with better controls could win with one hit easy but the first time I got killed by it which for some gamers may make them not play again which is bad when you play it more a lot more fun overall.  You can go from permanent flying which is cool buy going from flying which you can stop to me is bit annoying to get it to work right as a whole  they make you not be able to fly anywhere to give it platformer element for me overall that is kind of like double edge sword making it go from fun to kind of annoying a lot of the ti

Demolition Man

   My biggest complaint man moves to show to make combat such as shooting to show here  all the time but the graphics look amazing from the dark level viewpoint. Has a good style to the looks but gameplay is pretty boring here.  I think it could had being made better if it was more like flashback style giving it a good storyline and better looking climbing or jumping logic and give it more practice of uses here to me.

Dekitate High School - A Visual Novel and Management Simulation Hybrid

Enter the world of Dekitate High School, a place where anything is possible, and success is just a few clicks away. Developed by C-Lab, the masterminds behind Game Boy and SFC games, this visual novel and management simulation hybrid takes players on a journey of a lifetime. As a young and wealthy man, it's time for you to step out of your father's shadow and make a name for yourself. You've set your sights on becoming the chairman of a high school while also taking on the role of a teacher. But you're not alone in this journey. Your father's personal butler, Albert, is here to guide you and offer valuable advice. Your ultimate goal is to build a prestigious school from the ground up, shape the students' futures, and make your unknown institution one of the best in the land. And with five default girls (and one hidden character accessible through a code), you have the power to shape their lives and create unforgettable memories. But it's not just about the s

Death Brade Mutant Fighter

  Interesting and pretty cool fighting game it gives you a lot of space not common in fighting games during this time period so it was nice they did it also  I like that they put in like puzzles or tools you can use to win against the other characters such as spiked mace which can go on left to right to hit each you or the other character here. I like your use kind of like street fighting with wrestling and like monster fighting logic here is very cool to see how you do it plus jumping on the other monster is a very cool time to see here. Graphics look fantastic here to me as a whole . A lot of fun with friends or by yourself here you can choice between computer enemy or play against friends which is a very cool idea there to me as a whole .

The Death and Return of Superman

  A pretty fun beatup game with popularity from the Superman character being it not the best beatup or the worst main person you have here I think is caused by the gun enemys who you can't jump really easy here so hitting them kind of hard but the enemy in this game look like a demon which is pretty cool for Supermark style of game. You can be punching or throwing as like the close combat attack I think it would be better if his laser eyes attack was more fast or more powerful so could take down enemys more efficiently would make the game way more fun. Lift better here with someone having gun here to me makes it worse than having a close combat enemy here and you don't get enough health to me in game.

Dear Boys

  I find the idea of one screen for the action done by the ball or player kind of cool or exciting here.  The gameplay is more like strategic game than sports to me but I like the style behind it all and the idea of using like management logic to play basketball to me is pretty unique for some people the game would be kind of cool but I suspect a lot of people would still find the game pretty boring unless they are huge basketball fans which for me I am not I find the sport the most boring sport in the world more less

Deae Tonosama Appare Ichiban

  A fun random beatup game with platformer-style of elements it's nice seeing it happen and be played  out so well in the game and I find the idea of when you collect like 100 points you turn into this muscle style of fighter giving you more power and I like you can collect more points to stop you running out of power attacks so you don't guarantee to run out to quick from it all. I like a lot in this game the idea of you having so many Japanese fighting  characters such as like sumos who fight like sumos which is really cool plus ninjas who fight like Ninjas or martial characters like real fighter I think in general they put a lot of thought into make a sort of like the realistic style of fighting as much as possible in this beatup style of gameplay. The jumping parts from this game can be semi hard so if you were fan of games like supermario or other more famous platformers you may get enjoyment from it all. Figh

Daze Before Christmas

 Starts of with like Funky style of Christmas song which I found pretty cool to hear at the start of the game. Very fun Santa style of game where your main attack includes throwing like blue thing to open presents which can contain people you save or monsters which you can destroy this or you have to avoid bomb to stop you from losing lives or health .  I find the idea of jumping on chair for extra height pretty smart and I like seeing this a lot `in video games. Levels sort and fun such as the second level you could complete in like 1 minute fairly easily and you have like 20 levels where each time you complete it will fill in like an advert calendar which I found a very good way to represent the Christmas time period in a videogame. You can also turn mini where you just see the hat and Santa eyes I found that good design by the videogame designer here.

David Crane's Amazing Tennis

  Graphic loooks great here but the gameplay for hitting ball very badly coded here so trying to hit it would become annoying quick plus it's bit to competitive to win against easy as well if you are into old tennis games maybe fine for you but like retro sports games could be fun for some people I suspect but outside of that much fun for older or modern games a like to me as a whole .

Date Kimiko no Virtual Tennis

 Four ground types such as grass,hard,carpet,clay which can give it good sort of playing style to it or show you nice displays on the screen. I think the graphic here are very good for the console here and it does seem to  be the only fair Tennis game I found  for the 16 bit time period since most were to hard to play over being coded wrong or simply to hard for most people to have any change of being able to win normally but here it seems pretty balanced level kind of like you are playing against someone at tennis who is not pro but someone who likes to play semi pro level best way I could explain the playing style here so could be fun for people into Tennis games but if you are not into these type of games it maybe bit boring for you or other people in my thoughts.

Dark Law: Meaning of Death

  Great adventure storyline with the good graphic you picked your character then decide what stats you want it to have and you then have to use like items you find to perform actions like connecting vines together to make a rope to climb down the rock area so it has some sort of like puzzle elements here as well to me. You fall down the  mountain and get hurt with like 1 health left then you get found by gran pa and his gran daughter who tell you a bit about them while you rest to recover then next you get hose from the guy which you use to find silver  dagger as your first weapon it's shiny blue part where appears above the farm area. Old guy tells you that the girl with him he found left outside his house with just charm with her and also he named her after the princess in a way so it would rhyme with her name being similar as a whole  and the old guy gets killed by this demon style of knight who gives

Dark Kingdom SNES: Retro Game Review

  A JRPG  based on like Dark logic or gameplay if I could speak or understand Japanese I could review it better . Graphic look amazing good dark theme to it and the graphics look as good as some Animation made even today showing the quality was done very well graphic wise would be my biggest compliment about this game as a whole for how good it looks. Turn based combat is done here which is cool you can get max of four character to play with you in your team which is good idea so you get different skills from each one as a whole Dark Kingdom is a action role-playing game developed by Cyberdyne Systems and released for the Super Nintendo in 1994. The game puts players in control of a powerful wizard named Talen on a quest to stop the rise of the evil Dark Lord Zykir. Gameplay Dark Kingdom features an overhead perspective where players explore dungeons, towns, and an overworld map. Combat is real-time hack-and-slash against fantastical

Dark Half

  ENIX brand were you could argue probably the SNES overall best RPG creator of RPG since they always made wonderful games from the RPG with the games being loved by the older or newer fans a like with they still getting newer people in the games which is a wonderful thing to us. A very cool idea to play kind of like two storylines  together one you play as like knight called Facon the other you play as demon called Fallen one who's goal is to suck up souls and claim his  tool back again while you play as the fallen ones you claim souls who help you in the game which is cool but often they have no skills so may prove more trouble than they are worth over them deciding moves based on the software not what you tell it to do. You collect souls kind of like health if you run out the game over so you need to keep going to  villages or battles to collect more souls The graphics here look amazing which I thi

 Space shooting games are kind of the standard in the shooting spaceship games from the 1980s to 1990s nothing here to good or existing but if you are into these sorts of games then give you some fun probably.

Daisenryaku Expert WWII: War in Europe

 Kind of like Advanced wars  but less fancy or modern theme plus unpolitical correct since I doubt many people would be happy  in many countries to see Hilter or Stalin in any game overall but Japan in some cases were often making anti German games which they still do often. Has good amount of strategy behind it allowing you to build or train new soldiers giving you ability if you lose soldiers to replace them but in these games normally you want to kill the other soldiers as fast as possible to stop them being able to sometimes overrun your lack of soldiers or  your weaker army some of the time. I suspect strongly Advanced war was based on this game since it looks very similar except here it's more adult feel or real world feel to it instead of like map people in makeup world which I felt in general the advanced war games were some of the best games ever made overall
