  • PC Equivilents

    While it may be some time until the emulators run games properly, 100% working versions for the PC exist. In mainly cases, your better off buying the PC version then screwing around with an emulator that bearly works. Here's a list games that are available on the PC.
    Please note: if the title of the game is underlined, then it can be downloaded.

  • Black Throne(thanks Crimson) - A not too shabby game. The coolest thing of all is how you can shoot the prisoners. The PC version is pretty good. Not sure about the Genesis version though.
  • Earth Worm Jim 1 & 2- The PC version for DOS has great CD-Rom music, but poor video resolution. (Actually, its the same resolution that the video game consoles use.) The Windows 95 version has great VGA graphics, making it the BEST for any system.
  • Golden Axe- A great PC conversion of this arcade classic. Only thing bad is the fact that all the sound effects (voice quality) go threw the PC speaker. :( But, it DOES have Adlib music support.

    Just a little cool note to pass along:
    If you swap the .SPR files you can change which character you play or fight against. For example you can exchange the HERO.SPR and EVILLADY.SPR files so when you pick the Barbarian, you can play as the "Evil lady". You can do this with any file, even going to the extent of playing as Death Adder, or turning all the enemies into elves. (Thanks MAXIMOFF.)
  • John Maddian Football '9x- This game gets better every year. The lastest PC version is quite comparable to the Play Station Version. Don't bother with any version more than 3 years old. (I had a ten year old version for the PC, and boy does it stink!)
  • Mortal Kombat - The PC version was the best conversion for ANY console system. The guys in the Genesis version don't move as realistic at the player select screen compared to the PC version. Just get the PC version!
  • Mortal Kombat II - The only console unit that could compare to the PC version was the Sega 32x version. Again, get the PC native or the Sega 32x version.
  • Mortal Kombat 3 - Haven't played the Genesis version, but all I can say is get the Win95 version over the DOS version.
  • Outrun - No Adlib sound and it only has 16 color VGA graphics, but still quite fun!
  • Populous- The PC version was made in the days before the Sound Blaster card emerged, and before the SVGA standards. The genesis version is just better. The SNES version was made the way it was meant to be played. But then again, a mouse make controlling the game alot easier though. Hmmm. Tough call.
  • Sonic and Knuckles Collection - This package contains Sonic 3, Sonic and Knuckles, and Sonic 3 with the Sonic and Knuckles Lock-on enhancements. Not only that, the color pallet is noticeably larger, giving games a slightly newer look. If you want a perfect port of the 2.5 Sonic the Hedgehog based classics, pick this one up!
  • Sonic 3D Blast - This moderately succeful Sonic game had made it's way to PC wit the same features as the Saturn version.
  • Terminator 2: The arcade game - The PC version has tons of recorded voices on CD-Rom. The Sega version lets you use that Zapper gadget. Weather or not the PC version is superior is not know to me. Give it a shot!
