2020/1/10: Turbografx-16: After Burner II (Japan), Dungeon Master: Theron's Quest (CD)

Two new Turbografx titles - one Japanese import (PC Engine) and one CD (Turbo Duo) game.
Remember you need a converted to run a PC Engine game on a Turbografx-16.

Comments? Typos?

Or a Duo-R with region switch. Like I have.

Always been an Afterburner fan, but alas have never found them to be the most fun. It was always about the spectacle rather than the gameplay that was a bit too hectic for its own good. And we all know it's the gameplay that brings us back time after time.

It's a beauty though in arcade form with the attractive environments, beautiful sprites, smooth scaling, and a great soundtrack. Not a game I'd pump in one quarter after another into during a single session, but definitely one that I'd never pass up a chance on to take it out for a spin when the opportunity arises.

Maybe one of these times, it will all click from a gameplay perspective.

I love the Dungeon Master series. I have so many great memories of playing Dungeon Master on my Atari ST. In fact, it's my favorite game to this day. So of course I had to get this game for my Turbo Duo. I appreciated it for being a different take on my favorite game, even if it isn't quite as good.

Seconded! A nice surprise to see Dungeon Master: Theron's Quest get reviewed.

Do you think you'll review other games in the series? The first one is on SNES in English, and there's a later Sega Saturn game that looks really interesting but sadly hasn't been translated (though people have translated the manual, at least).
