The Spider-Man you got sounds like "Spider-Man vs The Kingpin". I highly recommend just activating the cheat mode for that one - makes it much more fun. It's actually one of the better superhero games on the system.
There's another one called simply "Spider-Man" that's based on the 90s animated series. It can be kind of fun at times, but frustrating at the same time.
"Spider-Man & X-Men in Arcade's Revenge" is not that fun either.

As for going into repro territory - I've been doing that for a while now (and in the case of the Genesis - for years, since back in the day I could only afford bootleg carts). Check out AliExpress - it's a great source for affordable repros of good quality.

As for Contra - yup, I own a repro of the Japanese version and it's much easier than the US one. I can't understand the story at all (and it's one of the more story-driven Contra games, but hey, it plays, right?). There's also a 99 lives cheat for that one too. You might as well go and get "Sunset Riders" too.

For Disney games - I forgot to mention that "Talespin" and "The Little Mermaid" kinda suck too, so feel free to avoid those, along with "Fantasia".

"Puggsy" is a nice, not-too-tough puzzle platformer with some nice graphical effects.
"B.O.B." is also a decent platformer with relatively short levels, if I recall correctly.

If you're into shoot 'em ups - "Insector X" and "MUSHA" are awesome, though for MUSHA you'd better go repro, as it's in the 400$ range (I lucked out many years ago and got a CIB one for 8$. To this day probably the greatest score I've had).

"The Flintstones" and "Joe & Mac" are nice action platformers and I seem to remember them being relatively easy.

"Alisia Dragoon" is also simple and fun.

"Battletech" is a blast if you can find a buddy to play it with. In two-player mode one of you controls the movement of the mech and the other one controls the guns. Makes for an intense experience.

Oh, and "Michael Jackson's Moonwalker" is better than people give it credit for. I enjoy it quite a bit.
Same goes for "Sonic 3D Blast" - people hate on the game, but it's actually above average and it's got some terrific music. One of the guys who worked on it is currently doing a "Director's Cut" - adding in a few things that were removed prior to release and fixing some of the game's issues.

Shit, how'd I forget Moonwalker? Yeah that one's quite good. Gargoyles also.

My bud had Aladdin and I remember it was quite a'ight. Never had any other Disney titles save Lion King which I already made my say on and stand by. Rolling Eyes

Never played the Shinobi's but wanted to check them out back then.

Phantom 2040 does sound bitchin'.

Eh, all I got to add. Really need to boot up my old system and go on some emulator/ROM spelunking again.

So I got a Switch in the beginning of August and have been playing that a lot. Beat "Double Dragon IV", the Shantae series, "Mighty Gunvolt Burst", "Cave Story+", "Implosion: Never Lose Hope", "Wonderboy: The Dragon's Trap" and "Sonic Mania".

Most of these are retro-inspired games with "Sonic Mania" taking the cake. A product made out of pure love for the franchise. Big thumbs up to everybody involved. That's how you do a retro revival!

Double Dragon IV was decent, fun, but not impressive.

The Shantae games are must-plays for Metroidvania fans out there.

"Implosion" might be something of a hidden gem - mech-based hack 'n' slash, surprisingly high production values for a 10$ game, multiple playable characters and two different storylines. It's relatively long too.

Wonderboy is visually stunning, but some gameplay elements haven't aged well. It's nice that you can switch to the classic graphics at any time.

A couple of days ago I bought and beat "The Mummy: Demastered" also on the Switch. I've said it a dozen times - Wayforward are the masters of retro and they prove it yet again. A great movie tie-in that's easily much better than the movie itself. Gorgeous pixel art, synth soundtrack and addictive gameplay make a great combination!

I also beat the long-awaited "Metroid: Samus Returns" on the 3DS and I loved every minute of it! Terrific game, though debatable if it was actually better than the fan-made AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake). But the European collector's edition (which I fortunately managed to grab) is a thing of beauty!

This was followed by me FINALLY playing "Metroid Prime". I got the "Trilogy" on Wii years ago, it was the main reason I wanted a Wii in the first place, but I wanted to wait for when the time is right (meaning, I had enough time to marathon through the entire trilogy). Since that never happaned for 5 years, I just said to myself "Screw it" and started playing. I loved the first "Prime". Visually great, it's aged really well. The motion controls are terrific and intuitive and probably the most important thing - it's genuinely Metroid in 3D. I loved it.

Currently playing through "Metroid Prime 2: Echoes", but had to take long brakes due to work (I started it weeks ago and am near the end now). Unfortunately, I'm not enjoying it nearly as much as the first one. It's not a bad game, but the gimmicks feel just like that - gimmicks. They needlessly prolong a lot of sections of the game and make it feel boring at times. Or maybe I'm just burned out on Metroidvanias at the moment. Will definitely take a break before I move on to Prime 3.

During brakes at work I play a little "Ultra Street Fighter II" and "Rayman Legends" on the Switch. SF II is a classic, one of my favourite fighters (along with SF III 3rd Strike) and in my opinion a much better game than SF IV and SF V. Rayman is also pretty fun and the levels are short which is a huge plus for portable play.

Once I wrap up MP 2 I might move on to "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" or just wait for "Doom" and the Telltale "Batman" series to hit the Switch later this month.
