Yoshi’s Cookie / puzzle / SNES & Gameboy / 1993 / Producer / published
Description: A port of Hermetica by Nintendo that BPS published in the US. Yoshi’s Cookie is a fast-paced puzzle game that can be enjoyed by everyone as it is easy to play, but challenging to complete. To play, you move the randomly placed cookies into rows and columns of cookies with similar patterns. When you successfully assemble a row or column of the same cookies, the line will disappear, and you can begin on a new row or column. The “Yoshi” cookie is very special in both the 1-player and the 2-player game. Since the Yoshi Cookie is the key to both games, you must use it wisely.

Obitus / RPG / SNES / 1994 / Producer / published
Description: A port of Psygnosis’ game published in the UK on Amiga and Atari ST. The gameplay consists of a combination of arcade elements and first person view much like Eye of the Beholder and Dungeon Master. One of the more remarkable features is in the first person mode, rather than having just 4 directs to face and flicking between them there are 8 directions and the view scrolls smoothly as you turn. This smooth scrolling continues when you move forward, giving the game more of a 3D feel.
