Ahh, the days of Super Nintendo. I can recall so many hours spent playing as Mario, or Link, or Donkey Kong (or even Samus!). The games were so much fun, and it was such a special time. In this blog post, we’re going to take a nostalgic look at some of the best games on that console and why they left such a lasting impression!
Super Mario World
Super Mario World is a 2D platforming game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was released in 1991 and is the fourth game in the popular Super Mario series. It was developed and published by Nintendo.
Players control Mario or Luigi as they attempt to save Princess Toadstool from Bowser, who has imprisoned her at his castle. They must travel through Dinosaur Land by using power-ups such as flying hat plants, frog suits and penguin suits to reach Bowser’s castle at various levels throughout each world map.
The player can also ride Yoshi at certain points near waterfalls or other areas where he can be found; some stages require players to use a special baby Yoshi to cross over gaps that an adult cannot reach on foot or with another adult companion riding him/herself without falling into deep water below (as with many other games). Players can collect coins along their journey which will eventually increase their score once all coins have been collected within each level before moving onto another area of play (this does not apply if playing multiplayer mode).
Chrono Trigger is a role-playing video game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Chrono Trigger’s development team included creators from the Final Fantasy series, including Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of that series, and Yuji Horii. The music for Chrono Trigger was composed by Yasunori Mitsuda, who also composed for Square’s previous games, Xenogears and The 7th Saga; it would go on to be a defining aspect of his career as a composer.
In Chrono Trigger’s story, players control Crono. They travel through time to obtain allies against Lavos’ rule over the planet while seeking answers to questions such as how they keep getting flung back in time when they change history.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
At number four, we have The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. This is the third installment in the The Legend of Zelda series, developed by Nintendo and released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). This game follows Link on his quest to protect Hyrule from Ganon/Gannon through time travel and multiple alternate dimensions. The SNES version was later re-released on Game Boy Advance as part of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past & Four Swords.
The gameplay is clearly influenced by side-scrolling platformers like Super Mario Bros., but there are some key differences that make it feel unique. For example, Link has many items at his disposal that allow him to interact with enemies or solve puzzles—from bombs and arrows to bottles and boomerangs—which results in more dynamic combat than most other similar titles offered at that time; additionally, each dungeon contains multiple different layouts depending on which direction you choose when entering them (this aspect was carried over into future installments). One notable downside is how difficult some sections may become if you don’t know exactly how things work beforehand; however, this complaint doesn’t affect everyone equally since this title offers unlimited lives so it can be played without penalty if needed!
Donkey Kong Country
Donkey Kong Country was released in 1994 and developed by Rare, while published by Nintendo. It was originally released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). The game is a platformer that follows Donkey Kong and his friends as they try to recover their banana hoard from King K. Rool. It is a sequel to the original Donkey Kong Country, which was released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1994.
In this game, you play Samus Aran as she embarks on a mission to find the Metroid hatchling and destroy Mother Brain. The game is a side-scroller and features multiple levels in which you explore different environments. It’s the second game in the Metroid series, following on from Metroid (1986). The game was released for Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994 and developed by Nintendo along with publishing rights belonging to them too!
Blog about the top 5 SNES games and why they are so memorable.
If you’re a gamer of my generation, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (or SNES for short) was a staple in your household. More than just a gaming console, it was an entire universe that we got lost in for hours on end. With so many great games to choose from, it’s hard to pick just five as being the most memorable: Super Mario World, Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Donkey Kong Country are all amazing titles that deserve recognition. But what about Super Metroid? It’s often overlooked when talking about classic games because it didn’t come out until 1994—a full three years after many other titles on this list were released! But don’t let its release date fool you; it’s easily one of the best games ever made.
All in all, this is a great list of games and one I’d recommend to any SNES owner. With that said, I would also like to suggest that if you’ve been thinking about getting into retro gaming or even just want a walk down memory lane, then check out these two lists: The Top 10 SNES Games That You Haven’t Played and The Top 25 NES Games
