No, sold separately - just with the sticker over the barcode. There were blister pack releases but the vast majority of those "part of a pack" will just be from multibuy deals. Toys R Us had by far the biggest selection of games in any major retailer at the time, so I suspect most of the stickered games will have come from there.
Operation Wolf: Typically high quality painting from our friends at Taito. You can see the stunned realization on the new recruit's face that, yes, the Uzi is a tool for turning a human being into a bedraggled mound of Swiss cheese.
Poseidon Wars 3-D: Hell on Earth never looked so fun! True, the enemy aircraft carrier is currently engulfed in a ball of flame, and true, too, that for the price of each of these torpedoes, we could house, feed, and educate an entire village of homeless folks, but what the hell... fire four more at 'em, anyway.
Aerial Assault: The triptych of Hell on land, at sea, and in the sky is complete. Even Mother Nature is flexing her murderous muscle with a deadly web of lightning. Meanwhile, having looted the modest social services budget in order to build these awesome fighters and bombers, it only seems right that we destroy them in a blaze of futile glory... so we can build more of 'em!
Honorable mentions: Impossible Mission - Good idea, mediocre execution. "Another life drawing anatomy class - stay a while!... Stay forever!" Monica no Castillo de Dragao - she may be little more than a spriteswap for Wonder Boy, but she looks like a Li'l badass in this illustration. Rock on, Monica! Battle Out Run - excellently captures the moment before the Ferrari goes drifting off the edge of the bridge. Zillion - you can say a lot about these early SMS illustrations, but one thing's for sure - this is some hardcore isht. The artist doesn't give a f*** if you understand what you're looking at here, but they've damn sure played the game.
Poseidon Wars - It screams War. It screams Explosions. It screams excitement. It's really well done Aerial Assault - Another exciting cover with planes, rockets, lightning that actually captures certain game elements Lucky Dime Caper - I love Donald, it was the first MS game i ever bought by myself and the bear is cute (would've been more awesome if it was Humphrey Bear but it's close enough )
