Veteran console games publisher Hudson has released TurboGrafx-16 GameBox, a free iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch download featuring many of the classic NEC console's greatest hits available as in-app purchases priced at $2.99 each. Known elsewhere in the world as the PC Engine, the TurboGrafx-16 was a not-quite-16-bit console that waged war with Sega's Genesis and later Nintendo's SNES in the late '80s and early '90s. The console failed to make much of an impact with gamers at the time, but it left behind a lineup of great games and forgotten classics. TurboGrafx-16 GameBox includes one free game -- World Sports Competition -- and allows players to sample each of its 15 unlockable games before purchase. The app's lineup features some of Hudson's biggest releases for the console -- like Military Madness, Bonk's Adventure, and Dungeon Explorer -- along with a selection of titles from Konami (Gradius, Salamander) and Irem (Ninja Spirit, Vigilante). The application is only compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad, and third- and fourth-generation iPod Touch devices. Earlier hardware generations are not supported. Here's a full list of games included in TurboGrafx-16 GameBox:
  • Bomberman '94
  • Bonk's Adventure
  • China Warrior
  • Dungeon Explorer
  • Gradius
  • Janseiken Necromancer
  • Military Madness
  • New Adventure Island
  • Ninja Spirit
  • R-Type
  • Salamander
  • Soldier Blade
  • Victory Run
  • Vigilante
  • World Class Baseball
  • World Sports Competition (Free)
Hudson plans to add more downloadable titles in future updates, based on customer feedback.
