Bonk’s Adventure was NEC’s attempt of a mascot for their TurboGrafx-16 system and although it never captured the hearts of gamers like Mario and Sonic did, it was a very good game. The premise of the game is … wait for it … you have to rescue Princess Za from King Drool. Original yes I know but this is the golden age of gaming where games were more into action than story lines.
Streets of Rage is your typical side scrolling action beat 'em up that was the Sega Genesis' answer to Double Dragon. Just like Double Dragon the game has you moving left to right and kicking the crap out of anything that gets in your way. Unlike Double Dragon you do have three different characters to choose from. Also these three character are rating in three different categories; Strength, Speed and Jumping. It doesn't matter what character you choose as they are really play the same.
