The classic Puzzle Bobble arcade game is also known as Bust a Move. Puzzle bobble was released in 1994 and spawned numerous sequels and bought in the popular characters Bub and Bob from Bubble Bobble to shot the bubbles. The idea of the game is to shoot bubbles and connect 4 bubbles of the same color and burst them before the time runs out or before they reach the level at the bottom of the screen. Anyone who loves the game Tetris will love this game which in the most recent incarnations included two player versions. An awesome game with numerous clones, but the original is still the best.

International Karate Plus (IK+) was released in 1988 and was a massive hit on the Commodore 64, Amiga and Atari ST. I remember playing it on the C64 against my brother. It was one of the best karate games because besides the two players, there was always a third cpu player to go up against. The graphics were great for the Commodore 64 which only had a small palette of colors available and the graphic detail was great; the water would ripple in the background and birds would fly across the sky. The detail reminded me of California Games.
