I need old school gamer help

Post icon  Posted 27 February 2006 - 08:56 PM

I have recently bought a GBA flash-cart and downloaded a really good NES emulator for it. I'm looking for the best NES games there ever were to pack into it. I can fit over 50 games on it and play them on my DS via GBA cart slot.

It's cool, and I want to know if anybody out there a drop a few NES game suggestions.

Sorry, NES was before my time.... it's a veritable dinosaur. Some of the other guys may be old enough to help, though. :P

Arkanoid and Heli Tiger?
What kind of games are those?

(They're the only two games that anybody has mentioned that I haven't included in the rom cart yet).

If anybody else reading this is curious to find some great NES games, here are some rare ones I have included,
(for other's reference):

fuzzical fighter (bizarre and addicting)
life force (you like gradius? play this!)
radia senki (part of tecmo's strange RPG series)
chaos world (another great RPG)
crystalis (availiable in english, like zelda? play this.)
earth bound zero (whacky)
kings knight (i dunno about you but I like this game)
mach rider (if you like racing...)
puyo puyo (you don't need to read japanese to play this)




Thanks for the old school help.




I need games that I can play on quick breaks n' such that are addictive in the arcade/old school sort of way. There are only a few new games that came out that are good. Too many new games suck, and I wish it was like in the old days where all the root of the good game series came out. That and too many developers make awful portable versions of good console games for the DS and PSP (more of em' come out on the DS).

river city ransom
teenage mutant ninja turtles
castlevania (all of them particularly 3)
any of the double dragons
duck tales ( fun cartoony game... music just like the old TV cartoon)
1943 ( airplane shooter)
blades of steel
tecmo bowl
chip n' dale: rescue rangers
little league baseball: championship series (easily the best baseball game to come out on the NES)
kung fu


If you're wondering why I'm posting again, I'm in my instrumentation class, and I'm bored! HA

Arkenoid is basically break out with powerups

Tiger heli is a top down shooter ( think 1942 ) where you are a helecopter shooting tanks and buildings and stuff. collecting powerups.



That reminds me
1942 (airplane shooter top down scroller)
Blades of Steel (hocky first use of a voice in a NES game to my knowledge)
