Video Game Exams study guide


Namco Bandai has released a more complete list of classic games that will be featured in Our Video Game Exams, as well as (obviously) the boxart. We doubt it's a full list, given that there are games on the box that aren't on the list (Rally-X and Dig Dug are immediately identifiable).

Surprisingly, Namco Bandai based many of the minigames on the Famicom versions of some of the games rather than the original, superior arcade versions. Specifically, Xevious, Star Luster, Sky Kid, Galaga, Dragon Spirit, Mappy, and The Tower of Druaga have been duplicated in their home console form rather than arcade. The rest of the games, with a few notable exceptions, are either in their arcade form or were only released on Famicom.

The exceptions are original games made just for this collection. In addition to the retro-ized [email protected], some kind of new version of Druaga will be featured. There is also a "button input" minigame in which you simply enter fighting-game-style button combinations, and an "adventure" game. The current list is available after the break.
  • Xevious
  • Star Luster
  • Sky Kid
  • Galaga
  • Wagyan Land
  • Mappy
  • The Tower of Druaga
  • Dragon Buster
  • Youkai Douchuuki
  • Adventures of Valkyrie
  • Metro-Cross
  • Family Stadium
  • Dragon Spirit
  • Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti
  • Namco Classic II
  • [email protected] (new version)
  • The Tower of Druaga (new)
  • Adventure (new)
  • Command entry (new)

Maybe the "Command entry" game is Tales of Phantasia in disguise?
