I second Tetrastar. Pretty cool little game.


Apologies for the necrobump here.. just wanted to share what I've found to be some fun lesser known Famicom titles (did my best to exclude more commonly known ones):

Astro Fang - Super Machine
Banana Prince
Cosmo Police Galivan
Don Doko Don 2
F1 Sensation
Gekitotsu Yonku Battle
Just Breed
Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru (converted into Yo Noid for NES)
Kero Kero Keroppi no Daibouken 2
Magical Tararuto Kun
Magical Tararuto Kun 2
Moai Kun
Paaman - Enban wo Torikaese!!
Paaman Part 2 Himitsu Kessha Madoodan wo Taose!
Pizza Pop!
Robocco Wars
Sanrio World
Saiyuuki World
SD Hero Soukessen: Taose! Aku no Gundan
Space Shadow (bundled with the Hypershot accessory, wouldn't reccd this game without that)
Time Zone
Wagyan Land
Wagyan Land 2
Wagyan Land 3


Any of the Ninja Kun carts. Really fun little games.
Daiku no Gensan is great.
Quarth is fun too.


You'll need at least a Family Basic keyboard to save with this, but Castle Excellent. Especially if you're a fan of Zelda II. If you don't want to get a Family Basic keyboard, you can get the American version, Castlequest.
Increasing source of obscure Japanese information...and interface.


Moai-Kun is a really good puzzle/platforming game.


A few more:

Asmik-Kun Land
Battle Baseball
Bio Senshi Dan
Doki! Doki! Yuuenchi
Dream Master
Kunio Kun games (all of them)
Honoo no Toukyuuji: Dodge Danpei 1/2
Keroppi to Keroleen no Splash Bomb
Tsuru Pika Hagemaru: Mezase! Tsuru Seko no Akashi
Zombie Hunter



Super Xevious is interesting - you have to solve some kind of puzzle to proceed to the next stage.
I like the new enemies, and the puzzles aren't that hard once you figure it out.  :coin:

I also like the addition of powerups. A gift from the Land of the Rising Sun.  ;D
