Sunset Riders

Konami 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

Yeehaw, cowboy!

You are one of four bounty hunters in the old Wild West, hoping to earn a decent living by shootin' some bad guys. Well, you're going to get your chance...

This game is a conversion from an old arcade game re-done for the SNES. That more or less says everything about the good and bad sides:


Supaplex

Think!Ware Development 1991
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

A computer themed boulder dash clone. Can be very frustrating to learn the moves, and very frustrating in level design, but is very rewarding when you 'solve' a level. Helpfully, levels can be skipped, so you can avoid that puzzle game 'brick wall'. Another helpful feature is that levels are not time limited. Original Boulder Dash, I am looking at you.


Super C

Distinctive Software 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Super C for DOS is a conversion of the arcade run-n-gun game, Super Contra. The reason for the abbreviation in the title not completely certain and is a subject of various discussions over the years.


Super Cars

Magnetic Fields / Gremlin Graphics 1990
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Racing games weren't always in pseudo 3D. For instance, there were Sprint and Super Sprint (which was never ported to the Amiga, but that's a story for another day). Super Cars is a home-computer-original variant of the same idea, and quite a good one.


Super Castlevania IV

Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

I recall this one receiving lots of attention, after all this is one of those games made to show what the SNES was capable of. And really it tries to show off a lot, while at the same time tries to keep being a Castlevania game.


Super Jeopardy!

GameTek 1991
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Jeopardy, almost all of us know what it is, and play it with ourselves almost nightly along with the TV. So when I saw this at a thrift store for a couple dollars I thought: Why not? The game game on a 3.25" floppy disk with a handy little install manual. It supported on-board sound as well as four graphics modes: CGA, EGA, MCGA, and VGA. For a game from 1991 the colors are absolutely EYE POPPING, they all mixed so well together and gave me a very immersive feeling, almost as if I was in front of my TV watching it.


Super Mario Land

Nintendo 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Game Boy

Besides Tetris, Super Mario Land likely belonged to the basic repertoire of most Game Boy players. The main character is the trade mark of the Nintendo corporation, distinctively the "plumber" Mario, who is on a quest for the kidnapped princess Daisy in order to free her. Obviously, the designers rather concentrated on tradition than on innovation when they constructed this background story.


Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

SML2_00.png
Nintendo 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Game Boy

As I am sitting down to write this review I start of with a seemingly good idea – which turns out to be horrible. I take the sentence ‘Super Mario Land 2 is a game’ and rewrite it over and over, adding a little detail each time. While the eighth or ninth iteration shapes up rather nice, it becomes really repetitive. What bothers me even more though, is that I say absolutely nothing about how I feel about the game at all. For some games this might be a good way to review them, but it seems really inadequate for this one. Maybe because when you have played a game for such a long time, talked with so many people about it, the game becomes more than the cartridge itself. The technical details might still be interesting, and maybe there is a thrilling essay about how fluid the animations are, or about the really creative level design in it, but I realise that I am not the person to write those, because I am far too biased. It is one of my all time favourite video games after all. So my mind starts wandering and I am thinking back at all those precious moments I shared with it…


Super Metroid

Nintendo 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

At first: this game is no remake of the NES classic "Metroid". It is true that it takes place at the same locations especially at the beginning, but it is several years later than part 1 and 2.


Super Offroad

Tradewest 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

Super Offroad is a very simple racing game. With a jeep you drive against three opponents (alternatively another human player amongst them) on tracks each sized exactly one screen. Appropriate to the name the terrain is covered with mud, hills and rocks.
