Has to be Top Hunter, it is short, but such fun, definitely my best game for short bursts.

SNK are so much more than just fighting games, I have 25 CD titles, only 4 are fighters, and 11 AES carts, of which 3 are fighting games.

Twinkle Star Sprites, Pulstar and Viewpoint are other favourites of mine.

Has to be Metal Slug, man what a classic. Everything about this game is fantastic - the sprite animation, enemy design, soundtrack, the intricate little details scattered throughout the levels. You can shoot and interact with objects apparently part of the background, not adding to gameplay but further to the depth and character if the game. I swear I thought metal slug was based on an anime or something.

Yeah that was my second choice after Ikari Warriors. Love Metal Slug, need to play that from start-finish and complete it. Like you say the small detail and the graphics look great

Probably T.N.K the tank game with the rotational controller or Psycho Soldier back in the days of the arcades before they where SNK

Shock Troopers and Puzzle de Pon are 2 of the greatest Neo games ever. And Spin Master easy to 1cc but what a game

I would have to choose one of the Metal Slug games. Probably MS3 because it was a bit different to the others. I understand some people disliked it for that reason, but not me.

Yet another vote for Neo Turf Masters - I haven't played a bad version of it....the neo geo pocket version is easily one of the best handheld games of all time....

Just a great fun game that actually rewards you for skill or punishes you for being crap.

great game
