NEOGEO POCKET COLOR SELECTION Vol.2 Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET One of the only real criticisms we levelled at the recent Mega Man Battle & Fighters, a re-release of a Neo Geo Pocket Color title included in this new package, was that nobody had bothered to translate the content from Japanese. It was an issue exacerbated by a fan translation already existing online for those willing to go the emulation route. Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol.2, on the same basis, is equally disappointing. There are ten titles on board this follow-up to Vol.1 — four of which are already available to buy separately on Switch eShop — nicely presented as little cartridges on the menu, each with a variety of options. The language barrier issue affects three titles, one of which is the aforementioned Mega Man Battle & Fighters. The other two are board game King of Fighters: Battle de Paradise, and minigame/sim curio Ganbare Neo Poke-Kun, both of which are fairly well-known to Neo Pocket aficionados as two of the system’s more intriguing titles. In Battle de Paradise you can bring up the manual freely to decipher the text.TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

Although it resets to the first page each time you do. If you can figure out the structure of things (which involves choosing a character, a sidekick striker, and rolling a die) you can get started on the board’s squares until you enter a minigame. These consist of memory tests, target shooting and the like, occasionally based on classic SNK properties. But it’s still a fairly text-heavy affair. Some of the minigames are quizzes, of sorts, where the only instruction in the manual is “depending on your response, your EX Striker’s alignment, etc. may be affected”. Not exactly ideal. The goal is to be victorious at the minigames and accrue more stars than your opponent before the number of turns ends, but it will require patience and regular manual referrals for a non-Japanese speaker to sync with it. Ganbare Neo Poke-Kun’s language barrier is thankfully less of an issue, although one’s mileage will vary regarding its novelty appeal. A cross between a virtual pet and WarioWare, Neo Poke-Kun is a weird ant-like creature who lives inside the Neo Geo Pocket Color’s internal hardware, in a room littered with posters, consoles, toys, and other oddities.

Play through a varied lineup of genres from sports, puzzles, table games, and more!

Not dissimilar to the Mega-CD’s Panic!, Poke-Kun lolls around the room while you press buttons, swing the analog dial, make various things go off and on, and sometimes demolish his house in the process. Eventually, you can call on visitors who burst in one door, run across the screen, and exit into the bathroom on the other side. The animated sketches are amusing, and occasionally suggestive, and the graphical style is great. The aim is to make Poke-Kun happy and keep him active enough to head off and get to work on the minigames he’s meant to be building. You can check the progress of these games — of which there are 30 — and access them when the percentage meter fills. The minigames are fine, basic reaction tests with an arcade slant, and mostly fun in short bursts, which is exactly how they’re meant to be taken. But, with no ‘happiness’ indicator to let you know how you’re doing, the twiddling-buttons-for-effect portion can become tedious while you wait for something to actually play. Mega Man Battle & Fighters, as we mentioned in our full review, is good, solid fighting fun, remodeling two of Capcom’s arcade games for SNK’s handheld wonder. Again, translations, even if just for the menus, would have been nice, but they’re overcome with relatively little perseverance.Rain World Switch NSP

Big Bang Pro Wrestling (also available separately on eShop) plays similarly to most 16-bit wrestling titles of the era, but is actually rendered really well, featuring an interesting and extensive character line-up. It’s certainly good enough to appeal to fans who enjoy the genre. It scores points for squeezing surprising mechanical depth into the hardware’s diminutive format. Biomotor Unitron is a neat dungeon crawler RPG with an emphasis on developing parts, building your Unitron, and seeing it improve when entering dungeons to do battle. It’s an interesting adventure if you’re willing to dedicate time to it, and its visual novel-styled over-world is graphically very fetching. It’s more likely to appeal to fans of the genre, but it’s undoubtedly well-formed. (Read our full review for more details.) Puzzle Link 2 is — you guessed it — a puzzle game, presented beautifully with a cast of great-looking characters. And, discounting the original Puzzle Link, it’s an excitingly original concept. As rows descend from above, acting as a timer, the player must create coloured links between corresponding icons, drawing lines across the screen to detonate clumps.

This collection contains ten titles in total, including four that are currently sold separately—meaning six new titles have been added!

It can be tricky at first to figure out all the available tactics, but once you get into it it makes for an engaging time-sink. There’s also a two-player battle mode available for local play. Neo Geo Cup ’98 Plus and Neo Geo Pocket Tennis are sports titles, unsurprisingly, and they’re fine. Cup ’98 is your basic overhead football game, where every sprite is the same dude, and you’re limited to two buttons to do all your running, tackling, passing, and shooting. It works well enough for a few goes, but it might not hold your attention for long, especially when Germany keeps fouling you all the time. Pocket Tennis is a little better, although collision detection on the ball takes some getting used to. Still, with five courts, several tweakable modes, and a bunch of characters, it’s decent, if short-lived, fun. SNK and Code Mystics have steadily been preserving the Neo Geo Pocket library for various platforms, and honestly, it’s been a good thing. The first wave of releases was brought together as one bundle in Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1, which honestly is a fantastic collection featuring some of the best portable fighting games ever made, and even a couple of solid Metal Slug releases too.Voyage Switch NSP

Another wave of releases followed since, and these are now bundled together in an all-new volume in Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 2. Where the first compilation felt like an actual greatest hits curation, this follow-up feels like a collection of sloppy leftovers with a few noteworthy titles. The games are preserved nicely as virtual renditions of boxes, manuals, and even cartridges can be held up. The actual emulation is solid, and there are various filters and display settings to play around with. Of note is the ability to play most titles on different Neo Geo Pocket handhelds, as games can be played on emulated versions of the original monochrome Neo Geo Pocket, the standard Neo Geo Pocket Color, and even the relatively uncommon NEW Neo Geo Pocket Color. Unfortunately, the latter was a final hardware revision, which didn’t do much besides slightly enhanced audio. So it isn’t easy to notice the difference in the emulation, at least. Some of the games featured in Vol. 2 have already been released individually, most notable being SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters’ Clash, which remains a fun little tabletop experience comparable to Pokémon Trading Game on Game Boy Color. This is easily the strongest title in the collection.

Features Re-wind functions so game overs are a thing of the past!

but it can be bought separately. Biomotor Unitron is included here, too; not the most compelling RPG by any stretch but still a fun portable experience. Surprisingly, the most enjoyable titles featured in this collection are the sports games, with Pocket Tennis being a highlight. It’s such a fun and simple game to get into, yet the play mechanics click so smoothly. Of course, there’s baseball too, which is just as fun and robust, and even soccer manages to be fun here. These are all great examples of how a sport can be interpreted as a bite-sized video game experience. They’re easy to get into and yet have all the necessary quirks to keep it accurate to the real thing. Speaking of sports, there’s Big Bang Pro Wrestling which leans more toward being a fighting game. There aren’t that many pro wrestling games on portable consoles that have stood the test of time, so this one is a welcome inclusion, even though the grapple system isn’t the most interesting. The character sprites are detailed, and the game tries to nail the presentation right. Another odd fighting game in Vol. 2 is Mega Man: Battle & Fighters, which feels like a boss rush mode presented as a one-on-one fighting game.

The game is largely based on Mega Man: The Power Battle, which can be found in Capcom Arcade Stadium 2. It’s interesting for what it is but hardly a game to come back to again and again. Some of the best portable experiences are puzzle games. While it would have been nice to see a little more included in Vol. 2, at least there is Puzzle Link, a simple mechanic of linking and chaining tiles works effectively to create a simple and compelling puzzle action game. It’s no Tetris or Puyo Puyo, but it does enough to help scratch an itch, even for a little while. What makes Vol. 2 particularly interesting is also the very same reason why this package feels like a missed opportunity. There’s a board game based on The King of Fighters and a weird experimental simulation called Ganbare Neo Poke-Kun. Unfortunately, both titles are entirely in Japanese here, with only their instruction manuals crudely translated. There are online walkthroughs that can help, and it is nice to see games like Ganbare Neo preserved, but for most players, these will be largely inaccessible and unplayable experiences.

Card Fighters Clash is probably one of the better-known titles in the collection, a card-battling game made more alluring by the involvement of SNK and Capcom’s famous fighting characters. You’re dealt five cards automatically from a deck of 50, and then go about using limited ‘SP’ and other attributes to defeat your opponent’s deck. It’s a game that will require some manual reference, and not because of a language barrier. Rather, it’s quite deep strategically, with a variety of different attacks, including ‘union’ actions, counters, and abilities unique to each character card. When you have a handle on it, it’s both fun and rewarding to strategise your deck and come out victorious, offering a little brain-teasing management to what initially seems like a mundane concept. (Check out our full SNK VS. Capcom: Card Fighters’ Clash review for more details.) Vol.2 offers a varied and solid selection of software, then. It auto-saves your game progress and offers two-player local action for several titles. Compared to the previous volume, featuring fighting games galore and both Metal Slug titles, the selection here is definitely a notch down. Interests in each title will vary player-to-player, and with such a broad variety of genres, one needs to consider whether you will really get your money’s worth, despite the steady level of quality.Sonic Frontiers Switch NSP
