Seikima II: Akuma no Gyakushuu

Seikima II - Title Screen

When your life runs out though, I guess you just sort of ascend out of Famicom World and…don’t actually die?

8 and 16 Bit Rhythm Land

Rhythm Land - Take A Break

And if you want an 8 bit version of Take Me Out to the Ball Game, oh boy are you covered!

Dracula Densetsu

Dracula Densetsu - Title Screen

Christopher is easily the slowest moving Belmont of the bunch, just positively crawling through the levels at a snail’s pace.

Akumajou Dracula

Haunted Castle - Title Screen

Seeing Simon in his white wedding tux as an increasingly more distorted version of Wedding March plays is very good.


Altered Beast - Title Screen

You get little hints at it with the between-level scenes found only in the arcade version, but the ending is all of the werebeasts and monsters taking off their costumes and revealing the human actors beneath.
