BOMB SWEEPER V0.5
By Snowbro
Download File DOWNLOAD HERE

Kent Hansen of SnowBro Software fame's clone of an old Game & Watch game from 1987 called Bomb Sweeper. You are John Solver, fearless bomb squad person, who has to save the city from Jack, a demented criminal who is trying to blow it all up with his bombs. Each level is a maze and you have to move around walls to be able to reach a bomb, but it's not as easy as it seems as not just any wall can be moved (obviously). If you don't make it to the bomb in time, it will explode and you're toasted (and loose a life). The game includes no less than 99 levels, so get gaming!

Beta of a game, yet very playable. The game was later released on Cartridge. Here's how the readme file describes the game... GemVenture is puzzle game where you fight against a series of monsters. If you've played PuzzleQuest, you'll feel right at home. You attempt to match colored gems in the playfield, which will give you mana to cast spells, and can heal yourself or hurt your opponent. Your opponent then take a turn matching gems, and you continue back and forth until only one is left standing. GemVenture features 6 character classes, 18 different spells, and 20 monsters, each with their own special characteristics!
HOT SEAT HARRY
By Memblers
Download File DOWNLOAD HERE

The year is 7250 AD, and the judicial systems of the world have crumbled. Civil and Criminal cases are now settled in an arena-style trial to the death. The Plaintiff and the Defendant are strapped into modified Electric Chairs and forced to use their legs to push the "Hydro-Electric Foot Pedals", which, therefore, in turn, causes an electric current to course through his/her/it's opponent's body. There is no settlement. There is no plea-bargain. Electric Justice for All!!! That's how the story of Strangulation Games' first release goes, a game which sure would've been a killer if it had been released back in the NES games and published by Active Enterprises or Color Dreams. Your objective of the game basicly is to hit your joypad A button over and over until it comes loose and drop off. Every time you win the color on the screen changes, very fun indeed!!

From Shiru's notes about the game... Game concept with a secretary and phones was proposed by me as the very first random idea for this smaller project, and we decided to stick with it. Unlike all my previous NES game projects, this one turned out to be an original, not a clone or remake or upgrade of existing game
