ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron – Genesis

Dead Moon – TG16
This side-scrolling shooter includes a total of six scenes spanning areas from Earth to the moon. The story begins with a comet discovered in the vicinity of Pluto that is headed on a sudden collision course with Earth.

… and the 100th game in the Wii Shop Channel:

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link – NES
Link returns to Hyrule to search for the Triforce and to awaken Zelda from an endless sleep. Embark on a quest to find the Triforce of Courage and save Hyrule from ruin.

Dead Moon sounds rather ominous.  And I’ll just come right out and say it:  Zelda II drove me nuts.
