Boxyboy (Turbografx-16)

Website link:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxyboy

The Turbografx-16 game list on Wikipedia redirected the link for Boxyboy to a page about the Sokoban series. As a fan of Sokoban, I was able to tell that this article did NOT accurately describe the game Boxyboy. While the core game mechanics are the same, this game is actually stylistically different and offers different puzzles, as well as a construction mode NOT found in some of the other ports of this game.

Final Zone II (Turbografx-CD)

Website Link:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Zone_II

This game did not have a Wikipedia article. So as I was doing research, I wrote most of this article. (Probably has since been updated). I am surprised at the amount of games for the Turbografx-CD that don't have a lot of information about them online.

Time Cruise (TurboGrafx-16)

Website Link:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Cruise

This article did not exist for this game. I also found that there was information about this game, but it was spread out and required a lot of research. Learning from my mistakes with other articles I was not able to add a screenshot of the game or box art due to copyright... not sure how to do that yet.

Zoom! (Sega Genesis)

Wikipedia Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoom!

While I was doing research for part 5 of the Ultimate Sega Genesis Review video, I found a shockingly small amount of information about this game. After playing it, I get why that is.

Great Baseball (Sega Master System)

Wikipedia Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Baseball

I had to research several pages about this game as there was not a lot of information about it out there. This was my first page I created on Wikipedia.

Meltdown (Atari 7800)

Wikipedia Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meltdown_(Atari_7800)

Even though other editors cited copyright claims, I was able to get this page published by re-wording the manual for this game. Again, not a lot of information about this game elsewhere online. I was also able upload my own screenshot of the game from the video I did on this topic.

Barnyard Blaster (Atari 7800)

Wikipedia Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnyard_Blaster

Again information about this game was lacking online. Since I was already doing an article about another Atari 7800 Light Gun game, I decided to try one on this game as well. I think it turned out better than my first articles.

Acclaim Wireless Remote Controller (NES)

Wikipedia Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acclaim_Remote_Controller

This was my first article about an accessory for a game system. There is information out there about this accessory, but I was surprised it didn't have a home on Wikipedia. This was the first article where I found a Primary Source for the article from Popular Mechanics.
