It's Dynamite!
he Virtual Console is like a box of chocolates: You never know which games have the tasty caramel filling and which ones are going to make you want to vomit. Of course that's why you have the Virtual Console Archive as your guide to which chocolates are best to eat!

For North America this week you are treated to Dynamite Headdy which is a cool platform game on the Genesis. We highly recommend this one if you haven't played it yet. Headdy can give Sonic a run for his money on a good day.

If you've been enjoying all the excellent vertical scrolling shoot-em-ups on the TurboGrafx-16 such as Soldier Blade and Super Star Soldier you might get a kick out of out of checking out the series roots. Star Soldier on the NES is very dated now however so for everyone except hardcore fans this is to be avoided.

Last this week there is Drop Off on the TurboGrafx-16. The game plays sort of like Arkanoid / Breakout i.e. a bat and ball game. The gameplay is very limited and this game will get old very quickly. We recommend giving this one a miss.
