Can someone recommend me some PC-98 games that don't require any Japanese knowledge?

Thank you very much

Edit: I've tried Farland Story but for some reason my cursor isn't hidden, so I have two cursors on my screen.
I can live with it, I guess, but seeing the in-game cursor and my regular cursor is discomforting.
Any tips?

I packed two games in the zip file.
"super depth" and "Spin Ball".
These games don't require reading skill of the Japanese language.

"super depth" needs dos disk.
First insert system disk(msdos) to DriveA, the game disk to driveB.
Start the Emu and you saw the dos menu,you should type L and change your current dirve to B.
select the file "depth.exe",you can start the game.
this game was a little famous in Japan at that time.

the game "Spin Ball" has good BGMs.

I have played both games two decades ago.

if you use the emulator "T-98next",click the middle button of your mouth to disappear your regular cursor.

Thank you very much, both of you. I'll check them all out!

Btw, by "mouth" do you mean mouse? The button in the middle would be the wheel, but that doesn't do anything

Depends on the emulator. In Anex you need to press Alt+Backspace. If NekoProject then go to Device->Mouse, or click the mouse wheel.

Chitty Chitty Train is a fun little puzzle game.
http://fullmotionvideo.free.fr/screen/G0502.html

Objective is to pick up passengers and head for the exit, all whilst avoiding other trains and dead ends. Train movement is automatic but you can change the tracks via switches, and can also place temporary traffic lights (by right clicking) to stop oncoming trains.

If you want shmups, definitely check out Flame Zapper Kotsujin. Burning Dragon/Burning Dragon Plus are also not bad.

PC98.org has images of the two Burning Dragon games online right now.
