I'm on the first boss now. Pretty enjoyable game so far, the music is very catchy.

I never quite understood the people who labeled the original Kid Icarus as 'too hard' really? I can name ALOT(LOZ and Zelda II just to name a couple) more NES titles that smoke KI in the challenge department. The only thing i found difficult about Kid icarus was the 3rd Fortress, other than that everything else was just luke warm in terms of being toughy' And on the downside Pit became a bit too overpowered during the mid and later portion of the game making the later over and underworld stages seem actually easier.

Of Myths of Monsters however is a trip to EasyBreezyVille.

I agree with all of this (well, except for the Zelda & Zelda II mention — i would rank Zelda about the same "difficulty" level of KI, and AoL just a tad above that).
I never understood people thinking KI NES was hard either, with the possible exception of Pandora's palace. And back in the day we only really found it challenging because it was comparatively large, and also because we didn't know back then how the powering-up of Pit was determined, so it would take a million hits to kill Pandora.

Is there anything else I can do after I beat it like the first game then?

I guess either nobody knows, or there is no such feature. :(

@LordJumpMad, that's very disappointing. I was pretty hyped about OMaM, but now I just feel let down. Oh well, I still have a new copy of KI:U on it's way.

I'll agree that it's not better than the NES game, but I don't think it sucks.

It's just more of the same, but easier. While the GB games in Nintendo's other series' tried doing something that made them feel unique, this one stayed too close to the original in terms of both design and layout. It's almost like they took NES KI, toned the difficulty down, and slapped on a different boss set.

Not necessarily bad, but it ultimately fails to set itself apart in any meaningful way.

Huh? It's literally impossible to get lost in this game.
For the vertical levels, just keep going up, for the horzontal levels, keep going right.
Even the dungeon levels are relatively small, so if you hit a dead-end, just back track.

Perhaps you are getting confused by the fact that the vertical levels loop if you go lef-right?

Just like the NES original, huh? They must not have programmed the level designs, so you're able to easily distinguish where you are located. Right?

I grew up playing the original Kid Icarus on my NES. I found it pretty hard, too. It's so easy to die and there are some quite difficult areas (especially for kids.) I thought it was one of the toughest games out there at the time! In fact, I think Zelda 2 was hard, too, it's one of my favorite games, and I beat it in 3 months! This game, I still have not beat (or Kid Icarus: Myths and Monsters), the first is way tougher. The sequel isn't as hard and with this new release they have made continuing your game (and with restore points) much easier.

Even with the codes I have trouble with it. It's just... the physics man... you can fall really easily.

The only thing that made Kid Icarus 1 difficult was the falling to your death due to lack of being able to scroll down. Really, the game should've started with a horizontal stage, not a vertical one. And it sucked when you accidentally hit the down button and fell to your death. And lack of checkpoints.

But yeah, all of those negatives are gone in KI:OMaM. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Kid Icarus in general. I mean, there's only three games in the whole series. If you already have KI:Uprising and any version of KI1, then $4 is a low price to complete the series. I find KI1 and OMaM to be about even as far as fun goes.

Also, for anyone who doesn't know, in KI1, you fall slower if you hold the jump button. Similar to how you press the button repeatedly in OMaM to fall slower.

Isn't that just in the 3D Classics version?

Correct. That wasn't in the original NES version.

Beat it! Orcos was by far the easiest boss in the game, but he was also the most fun (also the most evil looking thing I've ever seen from Nintendo, lol).

He'll be a nice addition to my VC Boss Run (I always create a restore point at the beginning of every final boss fight, so I can fight them whenever I want, and sometimes I like to play 5 or so final bosses back to back).

Oh That's EXACTLY What I do because it's really fun.

Especailly In Metroid 2, DK 94', Double Dragon GB, Mega Man:Dr. Wily's Revenge and ALL 3 Super Mario Land Games.
And Maybe Kirby TOO. :D
