    As title said Iam looking for a game I used to play.
    I have not much to go on other than this:

    - It is a side scrolling beat em up.
    - When you defeat \ kill people they explode. (They acutally explode bones n flesh)
    - The char you played weared a blue suit.
    - He had very muscled arms.
    - The characters in the game were kind big.
    - You could go into doors to enter buildings \ houses.
    (Depending on how you like to call them)

    A thing worth mentioning is I never used a real NES to play my NES games.
    I used a so called Famicom clone: The Goodboy.

    The game that is discribed above came with a multiple games in 1 cardridge.
    Here is one of the only pictures of the console I could find:

    If anyone knows what game it might be.
    Or still owns a goodboy and or the cardridge please reply. [​IMG]

    Sadly... no [​IMG]

    This is not the game.
    They do explode nicely in splatterhouse tho!

    I thank you kindly for the reply. [​IMG]

    Anyone else please?

    I might have to add: It was far better looking than Splatterhouse and also more realistic.

    Well now I am curious also. Was it an actual NES cartridge or a bootleg?

    It was on a non actual NES cartridge.
    Do not know or you can call it a bootleg.

    The cartridge came with my goodboy and as written above contains numerous games.

    Some of them are: Mario - Pinball - Some circus game and many other.
    Iam not sure or it also held unofficial games.
    I sure hope not else I will never find it again. [​IMG]

    Perhaps I must also add:
    The cardridge was Yellow and I remember correct it had pacman on the front.

    Yes I think so!
    The right one it would be!

    Tho it must contain servaral games. [​IMG]
    Does it?

    If so... care to pop it in and search the first page for a beat em up? [​IMG]
    It should be somewhere along the top.
    Or could you perhaps give me a list of games that is on it?

    Number of games: Atleast over 50.

    When it was purchased?

    No clue I could ask my mom and dad if I speak to them tonight.
    They bought it for me back then. [​IMG]

    Maybe it also helps to say it had multiple versions of the Bomberman game.
    And it had a tank game.
    Not to forget Tetris, Roadfighter, Loderunner, Exite bike, Balloon Fight, Mappy and Ice Climber.

    Do I feel like a dumbass for ever selling that console. [​IMG]
    It seems to be pretty darn rare.

    I managed to find some of the backs of the cardridges but not of mine.
    Perhaps if you guys find some that are not the same as these it would be nice to add them:

    Is it possible that the game you're talking about is "First of the North Star" (or "Hokuto no Ken", as it is known in Japan)?

    Side scrolling beat'em up? Check.
    Exploding defeated enemies? Check.
    Player char wears blue shirt? Check.
    Muscular player? Check (after power up, at least).
    Big characters? Check.
    Enter doors? Check.

    It seems so for me. There is also a sequel, where the sprites were larger, but I hardly played it.
    I could risk "Altered Beast", but you don't enter doors on this one.

    [Edit]: Adding the sequel info.

    Awww. I was hoping I'd get to be helpful for once and answer the question! Well, maybe it'll be of interest that Hulu has Fist of the North Star (I think the whole series) on their site.

    http://www.hulu.com/fist-of-the-north-star

    Subbed, not dubbed, and crazy as hell.
