A good collection with less known titles

While not top titles in terms of popularity, this bundle contains a lot of good games. Beyond Oasis is a game with gorgeous sprites in a top-view action rpg game. Dynamite Headdy is a fast-paced platformer where you can change the protagonist head, receiving power ups in a cross between Kid Chamaleon and Decap Attack. Golden Axe 3 introduces some interesting characters to the series, including a fierce panther-man, and various new movements, like blocking. The Phantasy Star games are futuristic RPGs with a intrincate story compared with other titles of it's time. SoR 3, despite inferior to the preceding title, is still a strong beat'n up. Return of the Shinobi is the sequel to the first Shinobi game, also expanding on the gameplay mechanics. Fun fact: in the first versions of this game, Spider-Man and Batman were used as bosses. Out of all titles of this bundle, the weakest one in terms of gameplay is, without doubt Vectorman 2, who is more about the looks than the controls. And for the last, Wonder Boy is a little fun action rpg game with negligible story, but great gameplay.
