Berlin no kabe
■ Developer: Kaneko ■ Year: 1991
This arcade game, known outside Japan as The Berlin Wall, has largely been forgotten – perhaps because this Japan-only release was the only home conversion it received. It’s a rather cute single-screen platformer in which your goal is to trap enemies by knocking out floor blocks, then bop them with your hammer to get rid of them. There’s even link cable support, for those occasions when you find fellow Game Gear players.
