SMS Zillion Games

I really liked these as a kid, and I'm thinking of actually turning on my emulation PC and playing them again. Am I totally off the market in thinking they were solid 8-bit games? I actually don't mind the anime even though mainly b/c it epitomizes 80's, and I will take almost any of it over the tripe out today.

The first one I think is a pretty cool Metroid clone.

Second one I thought was pretty cool until I realised you fight the same basic enemies for the entire game and all the bosses are just slight edits of the normal enemies.

I agree that the original Zillion is one of the SMS's high points. I don't know anyone who prefers ZIllion II. If anybody actually likes those autoscrolling bike stages, he could have a lot of fun with today's endless running mobile games (which I'm honestly sick of, along with tower defense games).

The fact that this thread (or the MK9 thread O_o ) got you posting again is proof enough for me. ;)

I have a weakness for game discussion that references anything from the late 80s to the late 90s, but yeah, I've been occupied lately and haven't even played my beloved ST in a month. I don't currently have the energy to come up with interesting topics but I'll post here when I have a chance.

Me neither. I've had a hankering to play some old games, but not the time nor energy. My late retro and vintage kick continues though, but at the moment it's focused on clothes. ;)
