Official Games List

Frankenstein's Monster
In the cold dark night you make your way through the ghoulish castle of Dr. Frankenstein. There you must prevent him from completing his creation. Your only chance is to gather stones from the dungeon and bring them to the tower where you must build a barricade around FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER before he has accumulated enough energy to come alive. To succeed you will have to move fast, avoiding poisonous spiders, vampire bats and terrifying ghosts. Complete the job and the village will be safe forever.

Venture
Winky - the heroic adventurer - is off to claim the treasures that lay hidden in the depths of the dungeon. In each chamber lies a valuable prize protected by dangerous monsters. Equipped with only a bow and arrow, Winky must ward off the monsters to obtain the treasure. Maneuver Winky through the halls and into each chamber, firing arrows at the monsters. If Winky is successful, he moves out and heads for another chamber... and other vicious creatures. In fact, on his treasure hunt, the more he ventures, the more he gains!

Treasure of Tarmin
You've found the secret map to the underground lair of the dreaded Minotaur. You can go in, but you'll never come out unless you slay the Minotaur and claim his Tarmin treasure. As you make your way through the hallways and chambers, monsters wield their conventional or spiritual weapons. You must gather the proper defenses along the way. But use them sparingly, the Minotaur looms closer!

Wizard
Excellent. A masterpiece with high playability that is only marred by a few quirks that can be overlooked nowadays. Namely the collision-detection, and that walking over a ledge or falling more than 8 pixels will kill you.

TBA
Dark Castle
Can you survive the haunted house on the hill? From the moment the creaking drawbridge closes behind you until you slay the Black Knight, Dark Castle is a non-stop life and death adventure. Pitting you against the evil that threatens you at every turn, Dark Castle requires that you think quick, act fast and have a real zest for life. Where will your adventure take you? Through dungeons, laboratories and caves. Up and down ladders and ropes. Over trap doors. Past whip-cracking henchmen and Merlin the Magician, all of whom kill first, then ask questions. By creepy crawlers, kamikazee vultures and other mutants of mischief. And the more elusive you are, the more difficult it gets. Dark Castle has you looking over your shoulder as soon as your hunt for the Black Knight begins. Are you a hero? Or are you history?

Castlevania
If you think it's scary on the outside, wait'll you see the basement! You're in for the longest night of your life. Ghosts, goblins, demons, wolves, bats - creatures lurking around every corner. As you descend deeper and deeper, they get thicker and thicker. Better stick close to the cavern floor - it's your only chance of finding a weapon or two. You're gonna need 'em. Because when you finally meet the Count, you know he'll be going for the jugular. So keep your courage up and your stake sharp. And say your prayers!

Ghost House
A spooky romp through Count Dracula's incredible haunted house. You're Mick. And the good news is that your grandfather just told you that you're to inherit the family jewels. A flashy collection of diamonds, rubies, sapphires, even opals. All yours. The bad news is that they're hidden inside Count Dracula's mansion. They have been for years. First, you have to wipe out the bats, Draculas, and eventually their annoying henchman. Then you have to find the hidden keys and passageways that should lead to your family's long lost treasure. Ghoul luck -- you'll need it.

Clock Tower
Clock Tower is a survival/horror game for the SNES that never came out in the United States. That's really too bad, because Clock Tower is a true classic in the genre. Not many people know of this game, but they should.
Clock Tower tells the tale of a young girl named Jennifer, an orphans whose parents died mysteriously when she was a few years old. Now, her caretaker Mary guides her and her friends to a new place to live, the so called Clock Tower. At first, everything seems peaceful and quiet, but when Mary stays away for quite a while, Jennifer goes looking for her. She's just a few footsteps away or she hears screams coming from the room. She heads back, only to find out her friends are gone. After that she goes exploring, and soon she finds one of her friends dead at the hands of Scizzorman, the game's trademark enemy. And here your first of many chases begins.
Clock Tower is a point and click game. Jennifer walks where you tell her too, and by using the point and click system, you can also investigate the area for several clues that can help you go further into the mansion as your progress. This won't be so easy however, as you'll often, sometimes completely out of the sudden, be ambushed by Scizzorman. The goal here is to run away and find a hiding place or escape route ASAP. While avoidong Scizzorman and looking for clues, other unpleasant suprises will await you in the tower. Sometimes, you'll find a dead friend, be shocked by a scary event (for example, you pull a curtain to the side, only to reveal Scizzorman is right behind it), or be disturbed because of several reasons. All of this together makes for a tense, but above all scary experience. It cannot be mentioned enough that Clock Tower is a scary, scary game. It doesn't have (save for some select moments) any blood and guts, but it doesn't need any. The atmosphere alone is more then enough to scare the hell out of you, making you desperatly wish you next move won't be your last. Nightmares are assured, and that comes from someone who wasn't scared by any of the Resident Evil games, so approach this game with caution.

Ghouls N' Ghosts
The time is yesteryear, when knights scoured the countryside in search of the Holy Grail, defended the honor of fair maidens and fought a never-ending battle against rampant evil forces. Thrown into this mayhem, is the courageous Sir Arthur. A victorious knight with the awesome task of penetrating the Demon's Castle to pulverize the Prince of Darkness. Can he do it? It's up to you. You'll dangerously travel through the Place of Execution, the Village of Decay, the Town of Fire, and the Crystal Forest with an arsenal of weapons at your side. And when you're really down on your luck, magic fights might with powerful results. The only problem? You'll have to learn how to use it. And avoid it. Because their magic has the power to change you into a helpless duck among other things. But there's not much time. Lives depend on you. So brandish your sword and make mincemeat of your foes.

Dracula X
Much to the dismay of the series' diehard fanbase, Dracula X: Rondo of Blood (translation: Dracula X: Circle of Blood) never made it to NEC's American 16-bit console, the Turbo Grafx CD, due to the system's slow death in what was an already stacked marketplace. While the game is widely regarded as one of the series' strongest pillars, it appeared until the announcement of The Dracula X Chronicles that Rondo would ever see re-release due to confusing legal issues combined with a modern climate where classic gaming is often frowned upon by even console suppliers, which is really a shame considering the game's influence.
Its stage-by-stage style of play is derived chiefly from Dracula's Curse (and even Vampire Killer in terms of design) though more compressed: That is, with all things being equal, there are two possible paths you can travel to reach the final stage for the battle with Count Dracula. There's a "regular" path and an "alternate" path starting after stage one, in either case a four-stage chain that leads to stage six, where it becomes strictly linear. You're not confined to a given path because you can break the chain and switch the current path at any time by finding (or not finding) alternate exits and passageways that lead to regular or alternate bosses. Also of note is that you can rescue Maria very early on, which will unlock the young Renard as a playable character who can then partake in this mission in her own way. Though, Richter and Maria cannot be used in tandem--at least not in the first run-through.
The two characters will have to utilize their distinct abilities if they hope to survive. Richter is the more typical Belmont, commanding the famous whip and sub-weapons, while Maria supplies a rather unique experience with her fancy moves and animal attacks. Each of the two has his or her own ending sequence after the defeat of Dracula, and when the mission's complete, you can go back and use both to achieve a 100% completion rate by unlocking all of the stages and by saving all of the missing women.

Nightmare in the Dark
The concept of that game and NitD is simple: you must clear the level (single frame) by attacking enemies with your regular shot, turning them into a large ball, and then lobbing them at other enemies to eliminate them. Touching enemies before you change them kills you. After a number of levels, you face a boss who must be killed by a combination of direct attacks and rolling smaller enemies into them. That's pretty much the gist of both Snow Bros. and NitD.

House of the Dead 1
They're dead - they just don't know it yet! Your job: play teacher using strategically placed rounds of hot lead. The arcade monster hit has risen on Sega Saturn. Load your trusty 12 gauge and dissect every rotting zombie, beefed-up cadaver and killer monkey experiment that stumbles your way. Just don't miss - these maggot-ridden mummies haven't had a good meal in years!

Silent Hill
A young man searching for his daughter - struggling to exist in a place between reality and hell - a town hiding gruesome, dark secrets. Follow a trail of blood and mutilation to snatch a loved one from the clutches of a demonic power. Enter an alternative dimension where death is no escape.

House of the Dead 2
Prepare to send the undead back to the afterlife! Features: From the #1 hit arcade smash. All new gameplay modes, exclusive to Dreamcast. Tons of branching paths for ultimate replayability. Incredibly detailed graphics. 6 levels of intense action.

Luigi's Mansion
Luigi steps out from the shadow of his brother Mario and into the gloomy shadows of a very haunted house in this, his first-ever starring role. Armed with a flashlight and a customized vacuum cleaner, Luigi must rid the mansion of Boos and ghouls--and find his missing brother to boot. As Luigi, you'll search for the keys that open the many locked doors; vacuum coins, cash, and gold bars; and explore vases, bookcases, and drawers. From the brick-walled basement to the gloomy grounds, Luigi's Mansion is packed with chills, thrills, and creepy surprises.

Ico
Solve the puzzles or join the tormented souls forever. You play Ico, a boy ostracized and entombed for being born with horns, as he solves a variety of puzzles to escape from a dangerous castle. Ico can leap over precipices and battle shadow wraiths and ethereal creatures with a swing of his walking staff. With the help of his friend Yorda, Ico encounters many mysteries in his quest, but one daunting question always remains: Is there ever a way out of this strange place?

House of the Dead 3
From the darkest corners, cadavers and zombies return to haunt your every move. In The House of the Dead III, you'll plow through the undead with shotgun in hand as you explore a postapocalyptic wasteland. The new shotgun can take out multiple enemies in a single blast. Take out wave after wave of horrific zombies as you travel different routes and discover secrets and hidden areas. The House of the Dead III's time-sensitive gameplay forces you to exterminate your foes as quickly as possible.
