Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Looking for something scary to cap off your Friday the 13th? Here’s something scary: a licensed 16-bit game that’s not half bad! While it may not be Castlevania: Bloodlines, Bram Stoker’s Dracula is a decent action/platformer that is worth looking into.

World Trophy Soccer

Still looking for another good soccer game beyond FIFA or Sensible Soccer? While you probably can’t get any better than those on the Genesis, there are still a few worth looking into. World Trophy Soccer can be fun for some time, provided you find it cheap. Otherwise, take your search elsewhere.

Double Take: Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master

The Shinobi series on the Genesis is widely regarded as some of the best action titles ever made, and they definitely stand the test of time.

Iron Helix

Iron Helix
