A cursory Googling suggests they are from a series of hentai fighting games!

...Which begs so many questions I'm not sure which one to ask first!

You could make a horse track simulator starring Morning Musume, and as long as it had amazing, transcendant pixel art, I would still forgive and love you.

Over Horizon.

Lost Horizon?

Something Horizon

Not Event Horizon, though it wouldn't be completely out of place.

Metal Max Returns, a remake of Metal Max 1 for the Famicom that was only released in Japan on the SFami. AGTP did a fan tl of it a few years back.

Somehow, "Reckoning" by itself as a subtitle strikes me as more authentic Engrish than every other humourous mimicry of Engrish that I've seen, ever.

This thread always brutally murders my browser, but between lockups I think I saw some sort of crazy hybridization of Fantasy Zone and Gradius or something. What's up with that?

My intimate knowledge of the exact combinations of tiles with which Phantasy Star's dungeons scroll and turn is now matched only by Googleshng.

The appeal of Phantasy Star's dungeons is how gosh-darn smooth their animation is. The basic floor-scrolling loop from one "tile" to the next is six frames. Turning is seven frames; a wall or intersection zooming in from total blackness to right up in your business takes around eighteen. Sega was able to achieve this by keeping the environments simple: the only details are the various brick lines (which are constantly used to inform perspective), and there are no more than seven colors in use.

Go any simpler, and it'd be on the level of The Black Onyx or 3-D Bomberman—too stark to imply much of anything in terms of lighting or distance. Get any more ambitious, though—to the order of 16-bit fare like Arcana or Shining in the Darkness—and every frame becomes so detailed that there's not enough time or money left over for animation; while much prettier than Phantasy Star from frame to frame, the aforementioned games might be a third to a half as animated. (The floors and ceilings in SitD don't even turn when the walls do, and the 2D Megaten games I've seen use a whopping one in-between frame to imply turning at all.)

As far as I've been able to tell, Phantasy Star is the only game that ever struck this balance just right. It's just as well that polygons became the go-to for this kind of thing (and before that, scaling-based fake 3D, as in Doom), because it would never be this good in 2D again.
