    edit:
    Cleaned up the first post a little. Removed some extra line breaks and added the games that I voted for in a spoiler. Also added titles to the spoilers to make it just a little shorter.

    Bomberman '93 is the definitive Bomberman experience and as such, the best game on Turbografix-16

    Somer Assault! I haven't played a game this unique in a long time. Definitely worth looking into.

    TG16 had the definitive port of pac-land, for sure. Also had a great port of DaiMakaiMura (Ghouls N' Ghosts) for the supergrafx.

    I still consider Gekisha Boy and Ai Cho Aniki to be the weirdest games on the system.

    Updated. Sorry for slacking and taking so long.

    Edit: Also checking & updating game play links as at least one (Castlevania) was broken.

    Spending more and more time looking at these forums. I come across this thread while looking for good games to check out on my new dstwo. No one listed Keith Courage? I played the shit out of back in the early 90's. I even tracked down a working tgfx in high school(2000's) to get my fix again. Found a working console with controller and arcade stick dirt cheap. Sad now it's just sitting in a box in my parents house.

    tl;dr Keith Courage
    Wiki: http://bit.ly/QRYs8V

    From what I remember it had to worlds half as a man then half in a robot. It was kind of brutal, maybe I just wasn't good then. This and splaterhouse were staples at my cousins when I went over there.

    Yes it does! But I'm taking this as another vote for Blazing Lazers because that game is awesome. ;)

    Blazing Lazers is one of my favorite retro games. I need to try again to beat it. In the past I've only gotten to area nine. I understand there's some debug screen or something where you can get extra lives, but that's lame.
