CTTG #9: China Warrior
Of all the games I’ve played through on this TurboGrafx run, China Warrior is the game I am most satisfied in beating! Being a huge fan of this title since I was a kid, I was genuinely shocked to learn in the past year that China Warrior is generally met with disdain. This is one case where I think […]
CTTG #8: Takin’ It To The Hoop
For the eight game in my conquering, I had a strange urge to play Takin’ It To The Hoop. This basketball title is one of just two that made it onto the system (along with TV Sports Basketball). It provides a solid basketball experience with intuitive controls and everything you expect from your basic hoops experience. Past...
CTTG #7: Vigilante
Up next in the conquering is Vigilante, just the 2nd game on this quest that I’d never played as a kid. I love playing these because Vigilante isn’t some unknown game. In fact, it’s one of the most well-known games on the TurboGrafx-16. Even gamers who’ve never owned the system could tell you that they remember...
CTTG #6: Battle Royale
It took me a little time to bounce back from the devastating events of J.J. and Jeff, but I’m back in the saddle with a return to a favorite game of mine, Battle Royale. I’ll start off by saying that Battle Royale is not a good game by any stretch of the imagination. Fundamentally a wrestling game, it has […]
CTTG #5: J.J. and Jeff
As the fifth game in my TurboGrafx-16 conquest, I was excited to play J.J. and Jeff. I really was. Yet, as it turns out, it was the game that broke my heart the most. You see, J.J. and Jeff is one of those games I had and played as a kid. In fact, I remember when […]
CTTG #4: Davis Cup Tennis
For the fourth game in my TurboGrafx-16 conquest, I chose to go with Davis Cup Tennis, a sports game and one I never had or played back in the day. Boy, was that painful. There’s a lot of reasons why Davis Cup Tennis is a terrible game. Major reasons. Let’s go through them. A Tennis Game for […]
CTTG #3: Neutopia
Three games are now down as I’ve finally beaten Neutopia! This third game was also the longest, too, taking seven play sessions. Each of the first two games were beat in just one. Alas, being a Legend of Zelda clone, this was to be expected and ya know what? I liked Neutopia! It certainly beat my expectations. While […]
CTTG #2: Splatterhouse
To conquer the TurboGrafx-16 means to beat every single game in its 94 HuCard library, but no game will capture as much attention in doing that as the console’s most famous one, Splatterhouse. Splatterhouse is the most well-known game on the TG-16 because of how unique it was at the time. It’s a run-and-gun type game...
CTTG #1: Keith Courage in Alpha Zones
Last night, I kicked off my mission to Conquer the TurboGrafx-16 by taking on Keith Courage in Alpha Zones. I went into the game with some amount of experience having played the game now and again over many years, but the monotony of the levels led me to never having beaten it (nor getting close). But, […]
