SUPER NINTENDO (1991-1998)
Another 16-bit system but now with more stuff
The 16-bit Super Nintendo looked amazing
when it first came out, the "Mode 7" (3D scaling) effects blew
me away! The way Super Mario World has that cool pixel fade in effect,
to the 3Dscaling effects in Politwings. Plus the music was really
incredible in games like ActRaiser and Super R Tpye. I was sold on this
new Nintendo. If there's any downside it's the systems overall speed
(Almost half less than the Sega
Genesis and TurboGrafx-16)
and weak sports lineup compared to the Genesis (I'm not a gamesports fan
anyway so I don't care).
|CPU Processor||65816 (16-bit)|

|On Screen Colour||256|
|Max Colours||a lot|
|Sprite size||64 X 64|

Here's a drawing of one of my favorite shooters: Gradius III
One of the first games for the Super Nintendo.
*One of the first systems to feature 3D hardware.
*Excellent sound capabilities that rivals CD's.
*The Super Gameboy lets you play the Gameboy games on the SNES!
*Still not that different than the Sega Genesis.
