Theme Park is a management simulator developed by Bullfrog Productions and published by Electronic Arts for the Sega Genesis and Mega Drive back in 1995. The game made its way to many systems such as the Amiga, Super Nintendo and Sega Saturn, with the best version arguably being on PC or the PlayStation 1 thanks to a few enhancements like the ability to walk around your park in 3D.

Chuck Rock was a cartoonish platformer developed by Core Design back in 1991. The same studio who were later responsible for the creation of Tomb Raider.

Splatterhouse 2 is brutal and gory side-scrolling beat-em-up was much more extreme than what you’d see in most games from around that time. You certainly wouldn’t find this on a Nintendo console! In the early 90’s, this was the closest thing to experiencing those famous horror films of the late 70’s and 80’s.
