In the story, Sonic and Tails must stop series antagonist Dr. Ivo Robotnik from stealing the Chaos Emeralds to power his space station, the Death Egg.
MORTAL KOMBAT 2
The game’s plot continues from the first game, featuring the next Mortal Kombat tournament set in the otherdimensional realm of Outworld, with the Outworld and Earthrealm representatives fighting each other on their way to challenge the evil emperor Shao Kahn. Also, Mortal Kombat 2 introduced more varied finishing moves (including several Fatalities per character) and new finishers.
This video game based on the National Basketball Association found popularity with its photorealistic digitized graphics, over-the-top presentation and exaggerated style of two-on-two basketball play. NBA Jam allowed players to jump many times above their own height, make slam dunks that defy human capabilities, and freely shove or elbow opponents out of the way and get flagged. It also featured a variety of secret characters, as well as the ability to track player records and statistics between play sessions.
Disney’s Aladdin is a 2D side-scrolling video game in which the player controls Aladdin and his monkey Abu through several stages taking place throughout the city of Agrabah. With each stage defeat foes by jumping on them, throwing apples to avoid obstacles, collect gems to turn them into health and extra points and more.
