Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble! was released in 1996 and sees both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong go missing. It’s up to Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong to find and rescue them.

The Ignition Factor was released in 1994 and is an intense firefighting game that has you saving people from towering infernos and flame-filled factories.

Super Valis IV has players taking on the role of Lena, the only warrior able enough to wield the Valis sword against the forces of evil in this action platformer. The longer it takes you to beat a level, the harder the bosses at the end will become.
