Personal review

Nazoler Land Dai 2 Gou is the second game in an obscure game series for the Famicom Disk System. The concept of releasing several small games and applications on one disk as so called "disk magazines" was not new in the homecomputer area. But Sunsoft tried this concept for the first time for a console. Nazoler Land Dai 2 Gou features six (mini)-games (five "real" games actually and a non-interactive information/entertainment part). So there are two less games than in the first game. But the games are overall a bit more sophisticated. But still a good step behind most other games. And several below average games don't make a good product.

1.) Putarikku: A puzzle game. Turn all squares of the playfield into white squares. Bland puzzle game for purists.
2.) Sekai Isshuu Nazoraa Quiz: Travel to cities around the world and answer questions to earn money and travel to further cities. Sadly, more difficult than the questions is the Japanese language here.
3.) Warashibe: Barter with other characters for items/money. Very strange game. Not fun.
4.) Bakufuu Tomo-chan: Another puzzle game. You play a girl which bombs her way down some platforms, avoiding animals and trying not to get stuck. I think this is the most interesting game in this collection.
5.) Nazoraa Shounen Tantei-dan Ougen Yashiki no Nazo-hen: An adventure game in first-person perspective. Didn't seem interesting enough to work my way through the language barrier here.
6.) Nazoraa Box: Not a game, but a collection of strange non-interactive scenes. For example a girl who reads some news (or letters to the editor I think) and a rudimentary paint program. Maybe they wanted to become even more like homecomputer disk mags, which also often featured tools and news besides games.
