5 New Games Arrive On The TurboGrafx-16 GameBox iPhone Emulator

Turbo-Grafx-16-Turbobox-iPhone-App-UpdatedNot too long ago Hudson released a selection of TurboGrafx 16 games on the Apple iPhone App Store. Housed in an emulator with each game sold separately, their latest update has arrived bringing five more noteworthy classics to the handheld PC-Engine-in-your-pocket.

While the majority of American and Japanese Retro Gamers will jump with joy when the TurboGrafx 16 or PC Engine is mentioned, European gamers are often left scratching their head over the elusive pixel powerhouse. Despite housing some instant classics such as Bonk's Adventure, Soldier Blade and Magical Chase, the TurboGrafx 16 only made it's way to Europe in limited quantites (often said to have been released in Spain).

However those who feel hard done by, having missed out on NEC's wonderful retro console, should look no further than the TurboGrafx 16 GameBox on the iPhone App Store. The Emulator is free to download offering limited play on certain titles, with access to purchase other games from the library at just £1.79 each.

Hudson's latest update brings the likes of Bonk's Big Adventure, Image Fight, Break In, Nekketsu Koukou Dodgeball-bu PC Bangaihen and the incredible Devil's Crush to the fast growing library. Our fingers are crossed in hope that Magical Chase will eventually arrive on the GameBox as a cheaper alternative to the expensive Shmup.

When I first came across this I was veeeery excited. But, I just can't get used to the touch buttons or D-pad. It's not the Gamebox's fault, in fact, compared with other iOS offerings the controls are actually quite good. But, it's just not as good as using traditional buttons. The first game I purchased was PC Kid but using the controls, I'm finding it real difficult to progress (and finish the game) as I would normally. This is one reason why I'm extra eager beaver to get my hands on an Xperia Play. Can't fault the emulation though. Devil Crash may be ok though.
