I tried out a few games:
Robocop 2D: the game has great menus and a joypad configuration thingy. It features some clips from the flick (in horrible resolution). But I can't really recommend it because the gameplay is god awful slow and Robocop is slightly unresponsive.
Living Hell: great graphics but also slow gameplay. I beat the horse on the first level and the game crashed (win7).
Castlevania: Bloodletting: seems to work alright but I encountered some strange glitches with the whip and walking up stairs that really turned me off.
Robocop is based on the NES and SNES games and I can tell you from playing the original...he moves SPOT ON like he suppose to. I did manage to end those games.
I ended Living Hell - Windows XP. This is another game based on Splatterhouse from the TurboGraphic 16 game system and that character moves SPOT ON like the original. That's part of what made those games hard as hell.
Castlevania: Bloodletting - Yes - He did not get a chance to fully code the whip to be used like the hidden character in 'Symphony Of The Night' - Where you hold the whip button and then move your pad or arrows around to have the whip whirl and attack on it's own while you can not move. The only glitch I got with the stairs is that when you jump in the middle of the stairs and try to climb up it resets you back to the bottom. The character does have some nice jump features that help you bypass a lot of the traps and stages quickly and even lead to a hidden room that is a spoof of 'Ghouls and Ghost.' The storyline is tight though!
Windows 7 seems to crash with a lot of games - Which is part of the reason why I never got the OS - Even though I can get a new copy for $32.50. At the time when I was considering the upgrade, I was still playing a lot of MODs for Freedom Force and Freedom Force II. Both games did not seem to work with Windows 7. The steam version do work with Win7 but I had the retail version and did not feel like re-buying them on STEAM just to play them. Justice League vs X-Men: Dark Times is by far one of the best mods I ever played for any game...it's made with such polish it looks like a retail game.
Sorry to hear the games are not working well with your OS.
