DK Jr. is good.
Balloon Fight is good.
Yoshi is an abomination of a video game.
Super Mario Bros. is great, so is Zelda.
Mario Golf is the best one.
Metroid is just confusing.
Ice Climbers is fine.
Wrecking Crew is okay, but repetitive and shallow.

Haven't gotten to Zelda II yet.

What exactly is so horrible about Yoshi? It's fun. :)


And Mario Golf is the confusing one O_o

The only games I can't enjoy are Ice Climbers and Donkey Kong Jr. Like people have said, the jumping is terrible in Ice Climbers, but on top of that, it seems as if the ice climber is falling through the platform as you jump onto it; this renders the game very frustrating. DK is slow, and it's ridiculous that Diddy dies when he only falls two feet; we're so used to Mario, who can jump more than 10 feet into the air and be perfectly fine when he lands back on ground.
But I can't complain, for these games are free and there are more GBA games on the way, which will probably be way better.unless they don't include Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga...

Frustrating?? That's part of the game's charm and difficulty level! that's ice you're jumping on!!! LOL. OMG. For real, people. You guys make me laugh. ;) Ice Climber is a AMAZING game. I guess kids nowadays just don't get the classics ;)

Gee, I must be crazy not to find charm in something frustrating... Well, I'm glad other people find it enjoyable.

So far from what I've played...

Super Mario Bros. - Dang, after playing New Super Mario Bros, I forgot how slippery the physics are. Good game though.

Zelda - Fun game, but probably the hardest Zelda I've ever played besides OOT Master Quest.

Metroid - Love the exploration element. Awesome game as well.

This hate for Yoshi is baffling. Different strokes for different folks, I guess, but this is far from a bad game. I feel like if it came out today and it was called "ArtStyle: PiKkrBiKKRsHmiKKrTon" people would be calling it the best thing since Art Style: PiCTOBITS and/or sliced bread.

@abgar
I always get 3 heart pieces, the blue candle, the white sword and the blue ring before I go to the first dungeon. This game is way too hard for me to just jump into it like that :D

haha! totally agree with you. it boggles my mind how many people are complaining about these awesome games, games that i grew up with that shaped my love for video games ;) oh, i am loving all the games, btw, the only thing that bothers me is that the Virtual Console screen does not show a "restore point" anymore, just "reset" and "resume game" ;< otherwise, i am so dang happy! been playing Zelda, Zelda 2 and Metroid quite a bit today, some of my faves! Oh, and Ice Climber, of course ;) Always love that one ;)

Don't worry, we'll be getting an update soon that allows us to create restore points. These were "priority delivered" to us Ambassadors so they hadn't finished putting the final touches in, but once theyse games hit the e-Shop officially we'll be able to update at no charge.

Oh! I just realized!! If you simply click the HOME button while playing one of the new NES VC games, and click "quit" it will save your in-game progress and if you click back on it later (even after turning system off) it will resume where u left off! Not bad! :)

Try to capture as many enemies as you can inside two egg shells to score lots of points.
Mode A is simple, almost relaxing if you're just starting a game, just make as many points as you can while the speed increases slowly, The game also records how many yoshies you have hatched (try to beat my record of 56). This mode plays with speeds on higher levels.
Mode B is also very fun, you need to clear the screen off enemies to advance to the next level (i have reached lvl 13, it's crazy).

Many, many times this.

I really don't understand why people don't like this game........

Is it just me or are the NES games a little hard on the eyes? It's evident that these games were designed for a larger screen, and the smaller sprites (particularly that of Link in Zelda II) are quite painful to look at. Nevertheless, I'm glad to have these. I doubt I'd finish any of them until the paid versions are released though (with restore points and simultaneous multiplayer).

I can't believe some of you are harping on the original Zelda. It's a classic in it's own right.....Although the random bomb laying against walls and the overworld map half the time itself has always annoyed me.lol But those Dungeons along with the eerie, mysterious, gloomy atmopsheric chilling Dungeon music were awesome. B-)

A lot of you seem like new born babies to Nes games. :P I guess you had to of been there during the time to fully appreciate how awesome these games were at the time.

I finally figured out what's going on with the display resolution. It turns out that the game screen is stretched horizontally by some 20-ish pixels, and that's what creates the (barely-noticeable-but-still-there) anti-aliasing artifacts. The vertical resolution is fine (240 pixels). My guess is that they did this slight horizontal stretching to maintain the same aspect ratio seen on a regular TV screen.

It's normal that if I try 2 players mode in super mario bros, during Luigi's turn, luigi doesn't move with any button?
EDIT: with exception of START, that put the game un pause.

It's hillarious hearing about all the kiddies struggling with these 20+ year old games. :)
You show these to some teenager and they think... What is this dinosaur game you're playing?
The graphics suck and it's too hard for me Whaaaa.
Why back in my day we didn't have all this new fangled High def gaming with CGI cutscenes and High res graphics.
Our games were simple and hard as nails and we liked it that way.
Now where's my walking stick?

I don't really like it because I've played it on my scientific calculator at school waaaay too much.
