avoid incoming fire. Conquer each stage to make your way to the final
confrontation with Starbrain.

Dynamite Headdy™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone – Comic
Mischief, 800 Wii Points): Headdy, a toy with a detachable head, arrives in
North Town to find that the evil puppet king Dark Demon is causing serious
problems. Dark Demon is gathering up all the puppets in town and turning some
into his own evil minions, while eliminating the rest of the puppets that
aren’t good enough to join his legions. Headdy is captured and is targeted
for the incinerator, but escapes in the nick of time. Now he’s got to save
the town. To do so, Headdy has to take on all manner of bad guys and even has
to contend with his lifelong nemesis, Trouble Bruin the bear. Can Headdy
overcome all his foes and take down Dark Demon?

Drop Off (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Brave
five rounds of haunting, nightmarish dreams in this take on the classic arcade
puzzler. To save his dearly beloved from the malicious demon that controls her
dreams and holds her captive, our brave hero plunges himself into the nightmare
to vanquish this evil foe. Deftly use the arrow items and control the angle of
the ball to shatter the blocks that descend from the top of the screen. Set
your sights on the joints holding the blocks together and knock off multiple
blocks in one exhilarating blow. As you drop more and more blocks, their shapes
will change, allowing you to earn bonus points. You must use your concentration
and reflexes to defeat the demon and save your beloved.
