** The N64 game isn't without flaws (excessive button mashing among them), but overall it's still a pretty amazing game; the soundtrack consists of 20-odd tracks from the anime all of which are done very well [[hottip:*:most notably Cruel Angel's Thesis, Thanatos, A Step Forward Into Terror, The Beast 2, and Ode to Joy]]; several of the Angel battles from the show were adapted in a way that works very well for each individual mission, its visuals are of consistently good quality, and while it doesn't seem to have a consistent measure of difficulty between missions even on the same setting, it overall is very fun to play, and definitely comes recommended. Shame it's [[NoExportForYou not released anywhere except Japan]].

* All of Taito's Hanna-Barbera games are very good. Especially all of their ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' games, which are all very solid platformers.

* This may not fully count, but ''VideoGame/PokemonYellow'' was heavily influenced by the anime adaption of the original video games. It took the original gameplay, but started you out with Pikachu, made all 3 starter Pokémon available in-game, had several appearances by Jessie and James as mini-bosses, and there was even a secret surfing minigame based off of the episode "The Pi-Kahuna" (Granted, to access said minigame you needed a Pikachu that knew the move Surf, which was only legally obtainable via a Nintendo event or by completing a ridiculously hard challenge in ''VideoGame/PokemonStadium'', so most people just used a [=GameShark=]). To top it all off, every Pokémon received new sprites that resembled their anime appearances as well as being leaps and bounds better-looking than the originals.
** A little more subtle, but there are several moves and other elements that were also inspired by the anime, such as Pokémon learning or being able to learn new moves. This included Squirtle and Staryu being able to learn Rapid Spin, and Charizard being able to learn Fly.
*** Likewise, when abilities starting being introduced for Generation III, many of the abilities were actually taken from the card game, which already had passive abilities on some Pokémon!
** Pikachu is the first (and only) Pokémon to say its name in canon Pokémon games, due to Yellow Version using Pikachu's anime voice instead of its in-game cry. This made its way into the main games once again as of [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Generation VI]].
** ''Pokemon Puzzle League'' is a reskin of ''VideoGame/TetrisAttack'' that is based on the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime series]]. ''Tetris Attack'' is already a fun game, and this is no exception. In addition, it's one of the very few games on the N64 that uses FullMotionVideo, featuring cutscenes animated just like the anime series!

** And hey, if Platformers and [[MinigameGame Minigame Games]] aren't your thing, there's always the PC games to check out. The ports of Lights, Camera, Pants and The Spongebob Squarepants Movie Game in particular are fun Point and Click adventures that expertly capture the humor of the show.

* ''[[Literature/MaridAudran When Gravity Fails]]'' got a game made out of it by Westwood. It is a adventure-RPG hybrid with an original story taking place between the first and second books. The main plot progresses by way of a satisfying mystery investigation, and the implanted personality chips from the books work both as a way of providing plain stat boosts and as a puzzle element. (Need to break into a warehouse and bypass the alarms? Plug in a burglar or secret agent chip!) The game doesn't shy away from the setting's numerous risque aspects yet it doesn't feel like gratuitous indulgence either. Among other things this includes prostitution, drugs, and transsexuals ''everywhere''.

** Shrek [=SuperSlam=] for the same consoles. It's an engaging ''VideoGame/PowerStone''-esque fighting game with destructible environments, 20 playable characters, and an addictive mission mode. It's even managed to find its way into competitive gaming thanks to the ''Shrek'' franchise's [[MemeticMutation memetic status]].

%%** There have been three games based on ''StarWarsTheCloneWars''. A Wii game, Lightsaber Battles, which promised motion controlled lighsaber combat but just couldn't quite deliver (Star Wars Kinect for X-Box 360, which also tried this, had [[LoveItOrHateIt a more polarizing reception]]. Republic Heroes is a lame action platformer whose high point is featuring the villain Cad Bane prominently in the plot. Lastly there's the much overlooked (as it came out at the same time as Lightsaber Battles) third game, Jedi Alliance, for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS. It is by no stretch a ''great game'' but is a decent game that showed a fair amount of inspiration and could have been genuinely good had it got more polish (and a co-op feature, which it was very clearly based around). It takes advantage of the DS's touchscreen features, controlling very much like the DS ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Legend of Zelda]]'' games, while letting you play as several prominent Jedi (including [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan favorites]] like Mace Windu and Kit Fisto). It features the show's voice cast (who seemed to be [[MoneyDearBoy phoning it in]] for the other two games but put more effort in here) and an original story that could have easily been a story arc in the show ([[ContinuitySnarl though it fits very loosely into the show's canon]]), using the Nightsisters, who would later play a very important role in later story lines in the show.

** Speaking of good Home Alone games, The [[Film/HomeAlone2LostInNewYork sequel]] also got a good adaptation on the Sega Genesis. Its a more straightforward platformer spanning across levels based on locations in the movie, as Kevin tries to find his way back home. Not only does he have to fend off Harry and Marv once more, but [[EverythingTryingToKillYou also the denizens]] of [[TheBigRottenApple New York]] as a whole. The game has tight controls, a wide variety of fun weapons to use, and a [[AwesomeMusic pretty awesome soundtrack]].

* The [[NoExportForYou]] Japan only ''Anime/SamuraiPizzaCats'' game was a well-designed platformer involving switching between different characters and using their abilities to progress.
