Kung Fu Karate Nintendo

Kung Fu is a side-scrolling beat-em-up game released in 1985 with which you take control of a fine young gentleman (presumption is the key here) named Thomas, who has to rescue his very own Princess Peach named Sylvia who is locked away. You’d think that there would be other places to lock up princesses such as garages haunted houses or disused factories but in the world of video games, if you’re going to kidnap a princess, do it somewhere fanciful at least such as castles or temples. Following this lead, in the gorgeously named Devil’s Temple Sylvia is locked high up on the 5th floor and it is your job to rescue her. It would be too much to ask to press for the lift to go straight up there and if that were the case we wouldn’t be experiencing this video game and not have a good challenge. 

After Burner 2 Sega Genesis

After Burner II is an arcade combat flight simulator game released by Sega in 1987. It is the second game in the After Burner series, and was released for the Sega X Board arcade system. In the game, players fly an F-14 Tomcat jet fighter, gunning down enemies while avoiding incoming fire. After Burner II came both a standard arcade cabinet and a servo actuated, sit-down motion simulator version which moved according to the motion of the plane onscreen. The cockpit would bank in the same direction the on-screen aircraft was banking. It is an updated version of After Burner, with the addition of throttle controls. It was a commercial success, becoming Japan’s highest-grossing arcade game of 1988.
