Although this game is called Fighting Street, it's actually a port of the very first Street Fighter game. You can choose either Ryu (player 1) or Ken (player 2) to compete in a worldwide fighting tournament, so the concept is similar to latter installments of the franchise. The only problem is the control. ...

Kablooey (USA)

Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) ROM

OmegaSonic0 says:
The best way to describe Kablooey is... well, uh, it's a puzzle game. And it can be difficult. The objective is to detonate all the bombs in the level without blowing yourself up, or falling off. The controls are kinda weird, since the game is displayed in a pseudo-3D fashion, but it looks nice. There ...

Lester is the most unlikley hero ever. He's an awful little nerd who often doesn't listen. But this game takes serious wit and mind power to beat. Having beat this game as a kid, i often like to revist this game, its hard, but a worthy challange.

I can beat this game in an hour, but that doesn't mean it's loads of fun to play. Impossible cars, stunts, weapons and plotlines - as standard in Hot Wheels games - make it a fun game to play and laugh at. It's not first person by the way, you drive/race around from above at an isometric ...
