What are the best neo geo games released on Neo Geo, the “rolls” of consoles?
This luxury console was out of reach for most people and reproduced arcade games at home. As much as to say that it was the Grail of the time and that most players knew it (well) later, when its price and that of its games became more reasonable on the second-hand market.
This ongoing poll identifies and compiles some of the best Neo Geo games, based on the answers given by the users, and giving importance to the order given.

The 10 best games of the NeoGeo Pocket Color
The NeoGeo Pocket Color is a console produced by SNK in 1999 that we present in detail in this file. With a quality stick, the NGPC offers a lot of fighting titles from SNK licenses (King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, Samurai Spirits etc.), but not only. To help you in your choices, we list the titles dear to our hearts.
Our selection of the ten essential Neo Geo Pocket Color games to have in their European version.
The Match of the Millennium
The Match of the Millennium, a fighting game that brings together the universes and a large number of characters from Capcom and SNK (18 available plus 8 to unlock). With an outstanding handling with the stick of the console, MotM is fluid, pretty and with particularly well done music.
It even offers a large number of modes and mini action games that extend the life of the game. Honestly, it has rarely (never?) been done better on a cell phone since. The Japanese version includes English.
Card Fighter Clash SNK and Capcom
2) Card Fighter Clash SNK and Capcom, is a card game proposed in a double version Capcom or SNK. As unlikely as it may seem, it is completely addictive with the emblematic characters of both Capcom and SNK. Simple to understand, complex enough to master, it offers hours of play. A sequel on Nintendo DS is only a pale copy.

Neo Turf Masters
Neo Turf Masters, one of the best golf simulators on handheld, say that doesn’t make it stand out, you have to try it and you will adopt it. Completely arcade oriented, it is a real pleasure. The Japanese version includes English.
Faselei! is a tactical RPG where you control a mecha (you know those big fighting robots), the story is quite classic with its little twist. Its strength comes from its particularly well thought combat system which will delight all tactical RPG lovers.
Last Blade, a fighting game, but this time in the Last Blade universe. Always beautifully realized and with a perfect handling. It offers a large number of modes and characters to unlock.
Metal Slug 2nd Mission
Metal Slug 2nd Mission, a run and gun as frenzied as the original. It is an episode designed for the cell phone, so it is not a simple port. The levels are much shorter, but they can be played with a character or with multiple vehicles (plane, tank, submarine, etc.). You jump and shoot with the two buttons, grenades are thrown with the select button. Not always very readable because of the rather pale scenery, it is still very easy to use. The Japanese version includes English.
Samurai Shodown! 2, another fighting game from the universe of the samurai spirit / shodown series. Contrary to what the number suggests, it is in fact a portable version of the episode Samurai Spirit 64: Warriors Rage. As simple to handle, the characters can be modified via cards won after certain victories. The Japanese version includes English.
Dark Arms: Beast Buster is an action adventure game whose subtitle refers to a series of shooting game from SNK… and it’s a good thing, because the monsters swarm in the different levels. To get to you you will have to level up not yourself, but the many types of weapons that are at your disposal. Problem is that the weapons use your “stamina” so you’ll have to avoid shooting indiscriminately… The Japanese version has English.
Puyo Pop, or Puyo Puyo in Japan is a Tetris-like puzzle from a Master System version. You have to combine four marbles of the same color to make them disappear and send them to your opponent or the AI. Quite classic, it still makes its effect especially since good puzzle games are not numerous. The Japanese version includes English.
Cotton, or more precisely Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams, is a shooter from an arcade version widely adapted on the Turbograph, X68000 home consoles. Due to the limitations of the console, this version had to make some graphical and sound concessions, so it’s not the best, but it’s still very well done. It is also the only shooter on this support (hence its presence in this list).
