Virtual Console Monday – Yoshi, Mach Rider, and Air Zonk

Mach Rider – NES
It’s the year 2112. Earth has been invaded by the forces of evil. Battle the invaders as you race from sector to sector on your motorcycle, searching for survivors. For a different challenge, create your own course in Design Mode.

Yoshi – NES
Yoshi is an action/puzzle game starring Mario’s dinosaur buddy, Yoshi, who has been imprisoned in an egg. Now it’s raining Goombas, Bloopers and Boo Buddies, and you have to help Mario stop the airborne invasion.

Air Zonk – TG16
Air Zonk is a spin-off of the popular Bonk’s Adventure series. This side-scrolling shooter retains the same cartoonish style of Bonk but is set in a cyberpunk future.

From what I’ve heard, Air Zonk is supposed to be an awesome platformer.  Mach Rider got me pretty excited until I realized it isn’t STUN Runner and that Yoshi game threw me for a loop until I saw the box art.  Downloading anything this week?
