The best looking 8-bit ever, just not 16-bit
PC Engine was a huge hit over in Japan and it came to North America in
August of 1989 as the TurboGrafx-16 (it looks totally different than the
PC Engine), even though it was in reality it was a 8-bit system with two
processors, not a true 16-bit machine after all. This information
helped to shorten the life of this underrated little system when the word
got out. The TurboGrafx (turbo for short) had tons of shooter games like
Blazing Lazers, Air Zonk, and Aero Blasters, some of them you won't find
anywhere else, plus even Sega also released alot of games for the turbo
like Dragon Curse, Space Harrier, and Fantasy Zone (Sega was not doing
so well in Japan at the time, so they made several games for NEC).
* the games are just the size of a business card, very portable for the Turbo Express.
* 256 colors on screen at once from 512colours! Even stronger than the Sega Genesis colour palettes.
* to save your games you NEED a turbo booster plus, and to play multi-player games you NEED a turbo tap. Hope ya got the cash?
* saving your game to a turbo booster plus, Turbo CD, Turbo Duo is very limited because the units need to be recharged every two weeks or you'll lose your data. How lame is that?
My high score for Air Zonk was 30, 332, 430 (Top score)
See it at TwinGalaxies.com and search for AIR ZONK
Air Zonk is a futurist shooter staring a robot named Zonk.
Zonk starred in no other games outside the turbo.
