European VC Update: BEST WEEK EVER!! Edition

What do you get when you take 3 systems and one of the best platformers ever? You get this week's VC update my dear Europeans.

Game 1 - Fatal Fury 2
Neo-Geo - 900 Points

Top kicking teeth in action on the Neo Geo, that's all that really needs to be said I think. If you liked the first one then get this I suppose, or get it anyway as its a 2D fighter from SNK and those are always good.

Game 2 - Ninja Combat
Neo-Geo - 900 Points

Side scrolling beat 'em up with ninjas. Need I say more?

Game 3 - Nebulus
Commodore 64 - 500 Points

I think this is on the US VC under the name Tower Toppler, if not however then its a platformer in the mould of 'get to the end' games.

Game 4 - The Last Ninja 2
Commodore 64 - 500 Points

The sequel to The Last Ninja, which was put on the VC a few weeks ago. Liked then then you'll probably like this.

Game 5 - Alex Kidd in Miracle World
Master System - 500 Points

YES! YES! YES! If you thought I was rushing those 4 previous ones then you're absolutely right because I wanted to talk about this one. Bundled with the original Master System as a built in game and regarded as the proudest moment of Sega's first mascot its one of the greatest platformers of the 8-bit era in my opinion. Drop the 500 points immediately.

Best week ever?

njsykora is pronounced like this.

Yeah it would be easier if it were spelt njsikora but it doesn't look as cool does it?
