Judge Dredd is a fantastic SNES title. The lawgiver fires different types of rounds, the levels are true to the source material, the sprites have stood the test of time, and it's one of the hardest games I've ever played.

2123386

The Violinist of Hameln is a fantastic platformer for SuperFamicom from Enix. I never EVER see it mentioned here, or really anywhere for that matter. You play as the titular Violinist, on a quest to save a town from monsters. All you have at your disposal is your violin, and it's tunes can lull enemies into submission. Accompanying you on your quest it your sidekick, Flute, who can transform via suits you discover as you play. Said suits are used to help you traverse the environment and solve puzzles within the levels. The soundtrack is full of great tunes as well, with Bach's Ode to Joy serving as the music in the main town. The word "comfy" gets thrown around a lot, but this game is the definition of it. The game has a fan translation out there, too, so there's no language barrier that can get in your way.

Check this one out, /vr/. You won't regret it.

Twinkle Tale on Genesis.

It's a shoot 'em up sorta like Pocky and Rocky or Shock Troopers, but themed on magic and fantasy enemies. JP only, but there is a translation patch (not that you need it, it's a shmup!).

I never see it talked about anywhere, but I am ALWAYS misremembering its name in the sense that every single time someone talks about Elemental Master I mistakenly start to think that finally someone else knows about Twinkle Tale.

Definitely. It's class/club system is amazing. The music, chapters, and hidden characters keep it fresh.

Unfortunately, the frequency of random battles is an issue. And the fact that only a few hours into the game it becomes "press A to win", and all of the neat Friendship Points and Club skills become a waste of time.

Nah. In the NES/SNES era when the difficulty changed during localization it was almost always harder for action games/platformers and easier for rpgs. Japan's view of the world was 1) Americans are novices at RPGs and 2) Americans can cheaply rent games, and so they might beat a short action games on a rental and never buy it.

Dream Master on the NES. It's an RPG with finite enemies and resources, and no random encounters. Each area of the game ends up playing out sort of like a puzzle, and each has its own unique hazards and gimmicks.

In my opinion it's the best RPG on the system by a long shot.

If you're an RPG enthusiast, you will really need to pick up the Sega CD attachment, which doubles the number of RPGs on the system, giving you Lunar, Lunar 2, Shining Force CD, Dark Wizard, Vay, Eye of the Beholder, and some other first person dungeon crawlers.

I'm a sucker for first person RPGs, but I'm a little wary of buying older disc-based games--I'm compelled to buy them with a case and manual and that just gets way too expensive.

Thanks for the tip, though!

Shadow Blasters for the Genesis. Or Shiten Myooh (Myouou) in Japan.

Short but very sweet.

This was a very early Genesis game. I had the actual cartridge 20-something years ago - borrowed it from a neighborhood friend and never gave it back. But as a kid I never got very far and completely forgot about the game's existence. Many, many years later I stumbled upon the ROM in 2000-something and was pleasantly surprised.

This is a very early Genesis game, so the gameplay is very basic and NES-esque, which to me is absolutely fantastic. The graphics are decent, but the best thing about it is the selection of characters. The game is hard at first as you figure out what those peach-looking powerups do, but eventually the game is beatable using a single character. I've done it with the white-haired guy (easily the strongest), and I'm not even a great gamer.

Also, the final boss fight will surprise you.

Please, tell me more about this one.

Speaking of lesser known RPGs, Ranma 1/2: Akanekodan Teki Hihou (Treasure of the Red Cat Gang) is a great little RPG. If you're a fan of the series it's a must play. Or if you're looking for a light hearted, humorous RPG it's worth looking into. Not really that hard at all, but don't let that put you off.

Instead of spells the game uses Mantras.
You can create your own by simply writing whatever the fuck you want, and then checking what effect is unleashes.

With some trial, practice (and luck) you can end having some insanely powerful spells as soon you start playing, BUT any possible abuse is prevented by the fact that your MP is limited so you still need to play and level up normally.

Oh, and the game uses a in-game time limit before the end of the world, and certain game events consume extra time, such as some traps or events that give you special items so you must be careful.

In the same vein, I indicate the Sailor Moon RPG. I was put off at first (lel Sailor Moon is for girls) but it's surprisingly fun with a lot of nods to the series up until the end of the third season. It gets kinda ludicrous when it attempts to blend in the manga and anime canons, though.

I'm kinda new here so I don't know if it gets any love around this place, but how about The Haunting for Genesis? You have to love a game where you're a ghost who has to scare people until they piss themselves and run screaming from the house.

Sorry if it's not a hidden gem, but I'm usually the one to introduce it to my friends.
