Here’s an overview of each game available in the West, via Nintendo:

  • COBRA TRIANGLE – Have you heard of the Bermuda Triangle? Well, that’s a resort cruise compared to what awaits you on the COBRA TRIANGLETest your skills and reflexes at the helm of a Cobra-class speedboat in this vehicle-based action game from 1989 for the original Nintendo Entertainment System. In this game that combines boat racing and vehicular combat, you’ll face high-speed challenges including cannon-equipped enemy ships, perilous swimmers, deadly sea monsters, dangerous whirlpools and ticking time bombs. Play through 25 stages of aquatic mayhem, where you’ll need to collect power-up items scattered throughout the levels to improve your speed and firepower if you hope to make it out of the Triangle in one piece!
  • Donkey Kong Jr. Math – First question: Donkey Kong + Donkey Kong Jr. ÷ Math homework = ? The answer: Number fun. Originally released in 1986, Donkey Kong Jr. Math Take the vine-swinging gameplay mechanics from the original Donkey Kong Jr. game and add an extra element of math challenge. Play as Donkey Kong Jr. and rescue Donkey Kong, who has been imprisoned by Mario. Navigate vines and platforms to solve math-based puzzles, requiring you to do everything from collecting numbers to grabbing the appropriate symbols that add, subtract, multiply, and divide them as needed to solve each problem. Along the way, you’ll collect fruit and keys – and be sure to avoid pesky birds, nasty electrical sparks, and creepy biters! Sorry, did we not mention there would be a test?
  • Golf – Play golf and relive one of the original sports games on the Nintendo Entertainment System. This 1990 classic gives you 36 holes of realistic golf action, with hazards that change every time you play (so you’ll need to plan a strategy in addition to just “swinging”). Check the wind direction, select the right club, and fine-tune your swing as you drive. A scorecard records your shots on each hole as you take on twisting fairways and hungry sand traps. Tee time is now, so grab your clubs!
  • Mach Rider – Set 88 years in the future (from today) or 127 years in the future (from the game’s original release date in 1985), Mach Rider is a vehicular combat racing game where players drive their heavily armed Quadrunner through the ruins of Earth in the year 2112. Take part in the Combat Circuit and battle your way through 10 different sectors, avoiding obstacles and eliminating enemies. Or try your hand at the Endurance Circuit, where you attempt to complete sectors in a set time limit, with oil drums and opponents determined to slow you down. You can also take on the time trial in Solo Circuit mode, where it’s just you against the clock. Remember, you are Earth’s only hope – you are Mach Rider.
  • The mystery of Atlantis – Known as Atlantis in Nazo in Japan, The mystery of Atlantis Atlantis is a side-scrolling adventure in which players take on the role of Wyn, an amateur explorer attempting to uncover the secrets of a lost civilization and rescue his captive master from the forces of the evil Emperor Zavyra. Using sticks of dynamite, Wyn will attempt to survive in a variety of exotic locations, including caves, temples, and even clouds. Atlantis is made up of 100 zones, each connected by warp gates, but choose wisely! Your success in the island’s labyrinth will depend on which gates you pass through and which path you take.
  • SOLAR PLANE – You’re Jetman, embarking on a perilous mission to reunite the missing pieces of the Golden Warpship, a near-mythical vessel capable of interstellar travel. This early-’90s multi-directional shooter puts you in the cockpit of Jetman’s Jetpod, as you explore 12 menacing alien worlds, each with its own level of gravity! Collect alien goods along the way to earn points that can be redeemed for gear at the Interstellar Marketing Co. trading post. Once you uncover a piece of the Warpship, you’ll have to tow it back to your mothership, battling the added drag that impairs your maneuverability (and burns your fuel – keep an eye on those gauges!). Retrieving the pieces will be no easy task, and Solar Jetman is your only hope!
  • Urban Champion – On these streets, there is only one rule: hit or be hit. Nintendo’s first 2D fighting game from 1986, Urban Champion is a bare-knuckle duel between fighters looking to earn the rank of champion and send their opponent plummeting down the nearest manhole in the process. If they succeed, they’ll earn showers of confetti from local residents and, eventually, enough victory symbols to proclaim themselves undisputed champion. But watch out for angry locals who’ll try to throw flower pots at your head, and the police will make occasional appearances to temporarily break up the fight or make an arrest if the fight time runs out. Take on a computer opponent or a friend and prove your worth to become the Urban Champion!
