#1 Actraiser: actraiser is an action/rpg game in witch you control an angel that is in charge of sealing all of the monsters lairs. You can also create rain, sunlight, wind and even earthquakes. You can talk with the people about what is going on in the town and if they find offerings or anything like that they will let you know. And that¡¦s just what you do in the rpg mode in the action mode you go down to the towns to fight the bosses such as the knight that tries to poke you with his lance and bring you down with his thunder, and the plant boss witch tries to whip you with his vines, or the Egyptian head witch tries to crush you, but they or no match for the muscular hero with his sword that can hack through anything. Also there is some very sweet magic such as magical stardust, magical aura, and magical fire the magical stardust is my personal favorite because if you stand in just the right position it will pelt your opponents with countless stars, next is my second favorite witch is magical light which will send out two huge rays of light one on the right side and one on the left to damage the foes, then we have magical fire which is also a fairly good source of magic to use it basically sends down two fireballs on each side of you to rip through your foes. Overall though with awesome music, boss design, level design actraiser gets a 9.5 out of 10

#2 Actraiser 2: actraiser 2 is a fairly good game witch you control an angel that can fly, slice through things with his sword or use magic, this game basically follows the exact same plot as the original actraiser except it takes out the rpg mode which I personally did not like at all because for me anyway it just took out a good part of the fun going through and building the towns up like in the 1st actraiser. But to the games credit it does have good boss design, nice level, and enemy design, and it does still have nice sound. Then again though the enemys do take cheap shots unmercifully which takes out the fun of the game. overall though actraiser 2 is not really a bad game but it is still not as good as the original actraiser so my overall score for the game is a 6.5 out of 10

#3 Arcades greatest hits: arcades greatest hits is basically I combination of five classic arcade games, defender, defender 2, robotron, seniostar and joust. Lets start out with defender, defender is basically a game in which you control a ship trying to warp to different planets while trying not to be shot down. The game makes a cool group of colors when you warp. Next is defender 2, defender 2 basically follows the same plot except with slightly better graphics. Next is robotron robotron is a game where you control a space man trying to shoot the mutants and get to different waves and save the people cool game with also very bright colors. Next on the list is seniostar, seniostar is basically a game where you are in charge of a ship trying to destroy a creature named seniostar which to me looks like the giant head of a dragon except evil in eating your ship and unmercifully taunting you which really gets very annoying. Next is joust, joust is a cool game in which you control a bird trying to knock the other players off there birds to collect there points, simple but good ah the memories. Overall all these games are pretty good with joust and robotron being the high points. Overall this game gets a 7.7 out of 10.

#4 Axelay: axelay is a game where you control a ship by the name of axelay and you are trying to save a family overall the game has very cool boss design. Like the mudman very clever by konami. And the best part of it is you don¡¦t die on one hit like most shooter games, and you can choose from three different weapons the lasers and those little bullets that wrap around your ship. Axelay is a very colorfull game in which I had very much fun playing. Overall this game gets a perfect 10 out of 10.

#5 Bass masters classic: bass masters classic is a game in which your fisherman competes in a tournament to try to rack up more pounds of fish than your opponents. The game is fun but just simply not well executed at all and puts me to sleep. I mean the lure selection is horrible except for that little yellow lure that floats on the bottom of the screen. Although if you do get lucky and catch a 6 or 7 pound fish it is pretty exciting. And it gives feel to the game. And if you do beat the game it gives you a pretty good ending. Overall this game gets a 4.5 out of 10.

#6 Battletoads/double dragon: battletoads/double dragon is a good game in which you are on a mission to save the world from the dark queen you can choose the toads zitz, pimple, or rash. Or you can choose the dragons billy or jimmy lee, I personally like either one of the dragons it seems to me that they are a bit faster than the toads. The game provides a unique variety of enemys such as the giant hand that tries to smash you or the robots that gang up on you. You can also ride on floating bikes and fight a giant rat, or a huge guy by the name of roper with a machine gun. Overall this game gets a 8.5 out of 10.

#7 Contra 3 the alien wars: overall contra 3 is a game where you are trying to save the world from a big group of aliens. To start you get awesome powerups such as the spread gun, fire gun and even the smart bombs. The bosses are fun to fight your first boss will be a giant turtle that spits fire at you and what appears to be giant worms. And you also have a level in the game where you have to jump from rocket to rocket in order to destroy the enemy ship. Overall this game is a blast to play and gets a perfect 10 out of 10.

#8 Demons crest: domons crest is basically a game in which you play a red demon by the name of firebrand who is set out on a mission to get revenge on the horrible deomon that put him in this hell on earth. Overall you can morph into a variety of demons by obtaining the crest such as the crest of earth, wind, fire and so on. The game also has a part in it where you can even have a little helper work for you, but this game also has wonderfull boss designs and is a blast to play so overall it gets a 9 out of 10.

#9 Donkey kong country: donkey kong country is a game where you play as two monkeys donkey kong and diddy kong, i personally prefer diddy because he is much faster than donkey. Your basic goal of the game is to save donkey kongs banana hoard from those scurvy bunch of kremlings such as klump and clubba. It is a very fun game to play and you also get a group of animal buddies such as winky, exppresso and engaurde. Also if you spell out the words kong you get an extra life, the game also features cool bonus games which in order to get to those games you have to find the hidden barrels. And it is very fun kicking captain k. rools but and ultimitly saving donkey kongs banana hoard. Overall this game gets a 9.2 out of 10.

#10 Donkey kong country 2: donkey kong country 2 is a game where captain k. rool has kidnapped donkey kong and it is up to you to save donkey kong from captain k. rool overall it is a good improvement over the 1st game. Except this time you have even cooler moves like double team and Dixie kong diddy kongs girlfriend that is can actually fly or at least flutter. This game also has a pirate theme to it which is cool, there are new enemys to face to and new bonus barrels and bonus games to play. Overall this game gets a 10 out of 10.

#11 Donkey kong country 3: donkey kong country three is a game where both diddy and donkey kong have been kidnapped. Once again it is your goal to save diddy and donkey from this robot named kaos. This game is cool in that you keep Dixie wich comes in handly quite often and you have this fat baby monkey that is strong but slow. You also have to face new bosses such as bleak and a giant spider. You have banana birds and also cool vehicles to ride in such as the jet ski and the moter boat you also have caves where if you get the right combination to beat the cave you will get an extra percent added on to your percentage total. Overall the game is cool but I feel it just lacks something over the previous two versions of the series. That is why I give this game a 8.3 out of 10.

#12 Frogger: frogger is a game in which you control a frog trying to get all the way across the busy road and you try to get all five of your frogs across the road before time runs out. But beware there are snakes and gators that are in your way and also giant busses. Overall this game follows a very simple but very fun concept, with nice level designs although it would help if you could fight some sort of swamp boss creatures to kind of spice the game up. Overall though this game gets a 8.2 out of 10.

#13 Gradius 3: gradius 3 is a game where you have awesome power-ups such as the twin lasers, ripple, vertical, reduce, field force and so on. And how do you get those power-ups simple you collect pods that add much needed firepower to your ship this game has a nice space shooter feel to it. also the level design and boss design is absolutely glowing in fact the best I have seen for the SNES. Overall though this game gets a 10 out of 10.

#14 Home improvement: home improvement is basically a game in witch you have to go around trying to find tims tools. Supposedly this game is supposed to be based upon the T.V. series but frankly I don¡¦t see what capturing tims tools from a bunch of dinosaurs has to do with the T.V. series at all. Although the bright points of the game is that is does provide good power-ups. Although I have never beat the game and most likely never beat the game it is still fairly good but it just did not have that much thought put into it. overall this game gets a 3 out of 10.

#15 Legend of Zelda a link to the past: legend of Zelda is a game where you play a young boy named link trying to rescue princess Zelda from the clutches of ganon, Zelda is an action/ rpg which is very challenging. But you can also get cool things on the trip such as the master sword, boomerang, magic powder, and even the handiest item in the game the magic mirror which allows you to warp from the light world to the dark world or from the dark world to the light world without changing links form. I have not beat the game yet but already I can quickly tell it is one of the best games for the SNES. Overall this game gets a perfect 10 out of 10.

Well here it is my first article on my SNES collection so be sure and look for part 2 and 3 of this article and have a nice day retrojunkies. ļ
