Zero Wing is the obvious choice.

I compiled the list by looking at wikipedias full console game lists and filtering the North American release date to 'unreleased'. I guess Pocket Bomberman only came out on original Game Boy in Japan and Europe then. I mean, it could still count, but GB and GBC are practically the same console so I'll take it off the list for now.

It was hard to me to think of a game for this theme but I might have found it: Heaven's Dawn

A game developed in Taiwan. It was translated to English but only released in Australia.

Point and click fans with PlayStation 2s should definitely look into Glass Rose.

I've got a few Midas Interactive games to play for this on PS2. Looking forward to it.

I just realized that SG-1000 games would work nicely here. Not that I own many........

I’ll be playing Pop ‘n Twinbee (GB), and I have a copy of Qix Adventure (GB) on its way to me. I’ll probably play those. May also give Vib-Ribbon (PSX) another shot, and I may break out my new Sega Genesis Mini to play some Wily Wars.

For those who haven’t played the yet, I highly recommend Ufouria; The Saga (NES) and Kuru Kuru Kururin (GBA), both of which remain available in the Wii U eShop. Super Fantasy Zone (MD) is also a shmup materpiece, and anyone with a Sega Genesis Mini can play that too.

Thanks for the suggestions prfsnl_gmr!

Ufouria: The Saga looks awesome. I'll definitely get it in the Wii U shop. Kuru Kuru Kururin has an amazing concept, but my oh my does it look stressful as hell. Is it a very difficult game? If not then I'll most definitely consider getting it as well.

This post is exactly what I was thinking as well.

TBH...both games get pretty tough by the end. I will give you some pointers for Ufouria if either of you pick it, but the final boss is just plain tough until you learn his pattern (which you could do by watching a YouTube video, if you had too). Kuru Kuru Kururin just takes some getting used to, but once you’re used to it, it’s not that too bad. Moreover, you can play it in very short bursts, with levels lasting at most a minute or two and many lasting only a few seconds. I think I was able to get a star (meaning I didn’t hit even one obstacle) in all but a few levels...even if it took me 100+ attempts. Neither game unmanageable...but Kuru Kuru Kururin made me want to throw my controller against a wall occasionally. :lol:
