First up, Sega Vintage Collection: Toejam & Earl delivers both the original game, and the sequel Panic on Funkotron. Both games star two funky aliens as they first try to escape Earth, and then try to remove pesky humans from their home planet. Both come highly recommended.

Next up is Karateka, a remake of Jordan Mechner’s 1984 beat’em up, in which you batter ten shades out of deadly martial arts masters. Here’s a gameplay clip courtesy of OldClassicGame.
