It is a light novel adaption, which saw the light in the year 1985. The storyline was and is still kinda fresh and the game avoids most of JRPG tropes.
Oh true, I remember really enjoying that one. It felt breezy compared to most 16-bit RPGs, the story just moved really fast and I'm pretty sure the dungeons weren't too long either. I remember it having an above-average story too, but I can't say I remember the details, with all the RPGs I've played.
Hourai Gakuen (also SNES) is also pretty dope. It's a very wacky humorous high-school themed RPG that takes place on a desert island after a plane crash. It's light on dungeons and battles overall, which is good as the encounter rate would have gotten really annoying otherwise. It's based on... well, I think it's a tabletop RPG played by correspondence?
I also enjoyed the SNES Villgust RPG. Not amazing or anything, but I thought it was solid all-around. The license here is odd, too - Villgust started out as a gashapon line, meaning little figures you would get from coin-operated machines (like the machines in Shenmue you can get all the Sega-related figures from). It was popular enough for Bandai to spin it off into a tabletop RPG, this game, a NES action-RPG (actually released after the SNES game) that isn't as good, an OVA or two, and probably some other stuff.
Tokkyū Shirei Solbrain \ Mitsume ga Tooru - NES Kyatto Ninden Teyandee /
I was really impressed with Cat Ninden Teyandee. It's fun, and a bit ambitious for its time. That, and Chojin Sentai Jetman were really cool for licensed Famicom games, based on TV shows.
Ditto for Parasite Eve. Never read the novel, but Squaresoft took an interesting expansion of the plot from the source material. I'm just going based on the movie I watched on VHS tape.
The Goonies and The Goonies 2 by Konami were actually very cool for a 1980's game. The Goonies 2 especially had that Metroid/Simon's Quest adventuring and collecting implements vibe.
Willow, both on NES and Arcade, by Capcom. NES game took a unique, Zelda + RPG style with more added characters. And the arcade game is among my all-time nostalgic favorites.
The Adventures of Batman and Robin, SNES, Konami. Loved, loved the mood of it. They really captured the essense, the spirit, the music in this game. Batman on Mega Drive/Genesis also really impressed me as one of the earlier games. Throw in Michael Jackson's Moonwalker on Mega Drive Genesis, and arcade. All of Michael's greatest, upbeat hits, wonderfully reproduced as BGM, with solid gameplay elements.
The Punisher(2004) OH MY.....This is bloody awsome, especially torture minigames, Shame they censored them, but on PC there is patch to remove censorship. Capcom Punisher 1993 are not bad too, its fun to play with my brother.
Warhammer 40:000 Space Marine There are many WH40K video games but Space Marine are absolute must play. (That brings me idea why HG101 not write article about Warhammer 40:000 video games in future)
Need for speed: Porsche Unleashed(As single car brand licence) Im not fan of Porsche cars but ive read game been praised very well.
Cool Spot Its nice platformer with mascot of 7UP, but in Europe this maskot are unknown because Fido Fido are mascot there Fun Fact there is Fido Dido videogame for Sega Megadrive but never released but you can find ROM prototype on internet.
ZEN: The Intergalatic Ninja(Bassed on Comicbooks on same name) There is NES & Gameboy games, but my favorite are NES one
Ghostbusters the video game(2009) James Rofle approve that but AVGN are suspicious about that.

I liked that one too, although I've never gotten too far in it. The Mega Drive Adventures of Batman & Robin is also really nice. It's a run and gun game so each game is really geared toward the user bases of the particular systems. They also both do a great job of capturing the look of the show.

Not in a long time and only briefly, I think it made some parts easier and others harder as things get a bit more hectic with 2 players shooting. You can apply a quick fix easy mode with GG codes for super fast recharging of your weapon, I think that's how I first played through it.
Well, those are big issues so not quite but it's a pretty good game as is. My faves on MD are probably the Disney games by Sega, followed by TMNT: Hyperstone Heist, Aladdin, Mickey Mania, the Tiny Toons games, Demolition Man, Batman, Spider-Man vs Kingpin (a bit rough but it has good ideas, a unique soundtrack and a nice variety of villains), X-Men 2 and Great Circus Mystery. With B&R being about on par with the last 3 or 4. Unless I'm forgetting something.
WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game was really well-done (both the arcade original and the home ports). WWF In Your House, however, was quite lackluster. Something didn't click with the graphics and the gameplay turned downright silly.
There are also others I enjoyed, but they were already mentioned.
