  1. Wow now this is a blast from the past, I remember seeing this years ago, I believe it was either in EGM or GAMEFAN. I thought (at the time) the huge detailed sprites looked good enough to be a Neo Geo title.

  2. article is slightly incorrect, the original SNES version of Nightmare Busters DID see an official release on that console, via Super Fighter Team who finished and released it a few years back

  3. I don’t know what to make of it based on one screenshot. It just looks like the Lucky Charms’ cereal mascot finally got pissed off enough at those kids who are always after his lucky charms, snapped, and is taking his frustration out on the local wildlife.
