Jim Power: The Lost Dimension
Jim Power is a shoot ’em up game similar to Mega Man, Turrican, Contra and other similar genres. Earth has always blocked “The Lost Dimension” and now alien guardian, Vaprak, threatens to annihilate earth to free its brethren in the dimension.

In Jim Power: The Lost Dimension, lead character Jim Power is an intergalactic soldier, who travels to a 5th dimension to stop evil monster Vaprak, from invading and destroying earth. Armed with your upgradeable blaster, spaceship, and jet pack, you will blast and jump your way across “The Lost Dimension” taking down it’s inhabitants before they take your life! The game soundtrack features rock music composed by Chris Huelsbeck (Turrican, Gemx, Apidya, Tunnel V1). 

Both the standard and the limited editions are available for the NES, SNES, and Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. Piko Interactive have only manufactured 1,000 units of the limited edition for each platform; Funstock have acquired half of these units.

Stone Protectors ­ Stone Protectors:
Stone Protectors is an action game featuring 10 levels where rock band heroes, Clifford, Cornelius, Chester, Maxwell, and Angus, have just performed at a New York City club, and find five magical stones…these stones give them troll-like appearances and special skills. This puts them at odds with the music-hating Zok and his henchman Zink, collectively known as The Protectors.

The Stone Protectors must battle the predators throughout their mission to retrieve Zok’s crystal and bring them all back to the kingdom. Weapons can also be acquired but only used by certain characters. Depending on the difficulty setting, the game’s ending scene also features different music in which the Stone Protectors are seen performing as a band.

Both the standard and the limited editions are available for the SNES and Sega Mega Drive/Genesis – this is the first time ever that the game is available for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis.

The limited edition includes:

  • Physical game cartridge 
  • DVD box set (13 episode series) *
  • Coloured instruction manual with cover art
  • Cardboard box with game artwork

*The Stone Protectors DVD Box Set will feature all 13 episodes (including 5 never seen before episodes!) in Standard Definition.
