Good Turbo Grafx-16/PC Engine Games

Post by Nobody » Fri Jun 02, 2006 9:26 pm

I don't know much about the Turbo Grafx-16/PC Engine and I was wondering if anyone knows of some good games for it.

Well yeah there's like loads but before I start listing all the games (some of which Sureshot listed), are you after CD games (CD-ROM, SuperCD, ArcadeCD) as well or just the hucard games.

Also is it TG16(US) games or PC Engine(Jap) as Jap Hucards won't work on a US machine without an adapter but US ones won't work on a Jap machine without a converter AND a mod to convince the games they're running on a US machine. This ONLY applies to Hucards and not CD games as the CD's will run on any machine.

Fair few good ones listed at one of my favourite sites....

Brilliant shoot em ups on the PC Engine, great arcade conversions and some very good pinball games

I'd add Devil Crash which appeared on the Mega Drive as Dragon's Fury. Excellent Pinball game.

I'm not exactly after anything specific at the moment, I just want to know what games I should look into.
I want to know about US Hucards and Japanese Hucards and CDs.
Thanks for all the help everyone.

GunHed is a good blast (well i like it)
Kato & Ken (or Chan and Chan as its also known i think) - is funny in a toilet humour kinda-way
Legend of Hero Tonma

Officially a crap gamer - but one that works for SEGA

I'd second that vote for Legend of Hero Tonma. Brilliant, brilliant game.
