Wrecking Crew ’98 is the 1998 sequel to the NES game Wrecking Crew. The sequel includes content from the original game. Playing as Mario in this puzzle game, players will “wreck” their way across 100 stages, dodging enemies while knocking down ladders and walls. Over on the Wrecking Crew ’98 side of the content, players must destroy and arrange panels to line up matching colours. By matching four, players can launch an attack on opponents. The more matching panels, the more destruction.

Super R-Type was first released in 1991. This arcade shooter sees The evil alien Bydo Empire launch an attack on Earth. It’s up to players to defend it as R-9, the most advanced form of defense. Play through seven stages against enemies with advanced firepower, collecting power-up items and take-down bosses. The game also offers several difficulty options ranging from ‘Novice’ to ‘Pro.’

Finally, Amazing Hebereke hails from Sunsoft and first came to Super Famicom in 1994. Making its North American debut, players can engage in chaotic battles across single-player and multiplayer versus modes with up to four players. Select your character and fight in various stages with items and traps at your disposal.
