That game's difficulty is insane. If I remember, by level 2, there's these mermaid-skeleton things which I don't think can be avoided unless you know their collision detection. And on the second level. KONAMI... I expect better from you! :P
(then again, it's an arcade game. They're not supposed to be fair, they're supposed to eat your money.)

Contra: Operation C for the Gameboy. B-)
It's Kind of simular to Contra II: Super C stage design wise in ways, while dishing out different bosses along the way. And it uses familar classic tracks from the Original Contra. Personally, I'm having a blast with it! Yet I can't get past Stage 4's Massive creepy Spider Boss, which you face off when getting to the end of an Alien Bug infested goopy long corridor. You get 2 continues and that's that. GAME OVER. Just the way I like it. Unlimmited continues are for babies, besides how do you expect to master previous stages if you don't even get to revisit them once completed?

This is contra through and through, not like that Half assed ReBirth Bill Rizer poop. And after I complete Operation C the only Retro Contra title that I'll need to play is HardCorps for the Genny' Genny' B-)

Nice! As you were saying earlier. I dabbled in All_stars during it's SNES release, but for me the SNES versions of 1-3 just lacked that original charm of the NES originals as the SNES versions all use simular sound effecets which feel like they were ripped from Super Mario World for 1-3 plus simular graphical styles and because of that they each don't feel unique enough, or as they did back on the NES from both a visual, art direction and sound stand point.

Either way, both versions of SMB2 are amazing regardless. Mouser and Fry Guy are two of those most awesome bosses to ever grace a mario game, and i love the slew of crazy and quirky enemies! Those PhantoMasks used to scare the living hell out of me as a kid. SMB2 is easily the most dreamy and magical of the bunch of you ask me....Which makes sense, considering it all takes place in Mario's Dream. :p

Glad you finally got around to experiencing it. It's truly underrated, and i'd personally nail it above SMB3. In combination with SMB2 back in the day, i always watching The Super Mario Bros Super Show/Zelda whenever came on in the morning/afternoon which used All of characters from SMB2's world and even the SFX from SMB/SMB2. It was so awesome seeing them all spring to life in cartoon form.. :D

Super Mario Bros 2 is a pretty underrated game. I personally like the choice of characters..though I end up being Mario a lot of the time. :p and Toad.
Right now, I'm playing through Super Mario RPG (had played it before but never beat it).
I don't know much about RPG's, but so far this game seem real fun. Has a little bit of fun, yet just a little cheesy comedy mixed in too. Story is interesting, and the game does not seem to ridiculously/ want to throw the controller through the TV difficult. ....not saying that it is super easy either! :p

I highly Recommend Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge and Contra: Operation C for the Gameboy! B-)
Wario Land is also another, it's so incredibly polished, well done and put together that it makes Super Mario Land 1 & 2 seem like B-Grade products in comparison. :p

As much as I love Super Mario Land 2's presentation, awesome & quirky world map, sweet chip tunes, the funky rabbit ears powerup, the Awesome Box Art and amazing TV commercial that went with it. It's the actual poorly thought out level design, mediocre platorming and iffy controls that funk up the experience. I Just didn't find it that fun to be honest, UNTIL i hit up Wario's Castle that is! :D

So what exactly is the dillio' deal with ActRaiser? I dug the SideScrolling Action based stages during the few that I've played on the Wii's VC a while back.
But those Sim City-based Town stages that you play in between totaly derailed the Wavemyster since that type of gameplay doesn't mesh with the all funky & fresh if you know what I mean. B-)

Anyways! I've heard that once you access Hard mode you don't have to play those stages and instead the entire game just consists of the Action/Side Scroller stages. Can you access a code be it the Cart or VC version that lets you play Hard Mode from start instead of beating the game to enable it? It's killing me, since again i really dug the SideScrolling action based stages. The music is the stuff of Legends(no suprise considering the same guy helmed Streets of Rage 1 & 2)


The epic riff starting at 0:41 is easily one of the greatest pieces in SNES history. B-)

and i love the super retro SNES feel, you can tell right off the bat because of the controls/gameplay which make it feel like an early Birdo' of a SNES title, which it is. B-) It almost feels like an unreleased Sega Genesis title with a strapped on & out of this world awesome SNES Soundtrack. Friend rented this one right when the SNES was fresh on the shredder scene, i myself didn't play too much unless it was one of the sidescroller stages...Those Sim City town stages threw me off then and they still throw me off now. :p

I love Actraiser; the early SNES "look" and unique gameplay elements combine to make a masterful game in my opinion. It's basic with the sidescrolling, platforming, and town building but it all just works for me. Maybe because it was one of those first SNES I rented, but I recently played it briefly and was not bothered at all by the sim part. Then again, I enjoyed Sim CIty growing up but now playing that is like listening to Egon Spangler talk about his spores collection.

Try this for Hard Mode; highlight OPTIONS then press DOWN twice.

Thanks RynIcarus for 'Acting' opon an Act Raiser Tip. Oh man, they don't get worse than that Boils & Goules! :P If it works, ActRaiser will be officially on the 'To Play & Slay' list. B-)

I'll try this trick out as soon as I'm done With Wario Land 2 for the GameBoy, which I highly recommend. I'm not too sure if it's quite up to par as the original in terms of controls and polish...Then again, in ways I find it superior. I mean WL2 is 'twice' as long and introduces a lot of awesome Wario Transformations, the bizzare factor is a bit higher(wario turns into a squashed Bat, a crippled zombie just to name a couple) I I love them for different reasons but i can see why most people favor the original.....Plus it's got a World Map, unlike WL2's Chapter based Story book.

Anyways! I'm just Fatal Fury'd and pissed that my WL 2 Gameboy 'color' cart came broken and bent in the mail....It wouldn't fit in my GBA, so i had to settle for the boring Black & White original WL2 Cart instead. Sigh* I'm getting another GBC version sent out for free, but I've already ventured in this little Wario fiesto and there's no way in hell i'd start over on the Color version......

Besides, the color version didn't come out until YEARS later, i'll just look at it this way. The original is older, and Wario Land/Mario Land freaks during that time played THIS baby as soon as it was hot off the shelves, unlike the Color version which was released randomly years afterwords. I'll just play the color version here and there for kicks....And you know, that's truly one thing I hate about these original GB games...The black and white dreary color pallette(Or Monochrome and the extremely mild 'better than nothing' GBC/GBA color pallette which gives GB games a 'slight' crummy hint of color, barely that is)....'Nothing' stands out as far as World color varations go, it's just different black and white scenery which usually gets scrambled when trying dig up some of those most righteous portable gaming memories. :p

How am i supposed to enjoy a beautiul sandy beach, lush & vivid cartoony green trees, with a bright blue sky, crystal aqua waves and little cute tropical colored Sword fish swimming to poke me in the tooshy (ahem, stage from WL2!) when the damn game is in Black & White? :p Sucks the atmposhere and fun factor down by quite a bit. Oh well, Wario Land 3 is in Color, so it's going to be quite exciting seeing that one for the first time. B)

That brings back a lot of sweet memories! the arcade version of Vanguard was the one and only arcade game i have ever truly mastered. I could keep playing forever, it just recycled the levels over and over and i knew them all by heart. They just dont make 'm like that anymore...

I need a SNES power adapter. I found a SNES at a car boot sale for just £2! However it came with no wires and only a 3rd party controller. Yellowed plastic too but it actually looks kinda cool.

I think you have to beat the game once to get Professional Mode. Indeed you get your HP meter from your saved game, but I don't think you get magic, but I'm not sure.

What is stranger is that the PAL version has a difficulty select along with an Action Mode that is not in either NTSC version.
It is different in that you get five lives and max HP starts at the minimum (so it is independent of the saved game on the cart) and you find max HP and magic icons throughout the game. But you don't get continues.
My guess is perhaps it was based on the Nintendo Super System (arcade console) version, but with one difference: the PAL version has 50hz sound but the gameplay is still 60hz. (whereas the NSS was full 60hz) And the NSS version allowed continues, possibly because it used time-based credits.

Is it too bad NTSC consoles can't play PAL games without serious modification or a rare/expensive cheat device.

Nice! A most righteouse & radical ReTrO buy indeed. B-) I still need to get an Atari 2600(The final system i'll be adding to my console collection aka > Nes, SNES, N64, GCN, Wii & Genesis)....Like the Angry video game nerd mentioned, there's something so surreal about playing the atari late at night, on a mid 80's wood panel TV while hearing crickets chearping in the background .lol :p

Any solid Atari Recommendations? I use to adore Pitfall Hell, I'd even buy Halloween regardless of the suckage. :p
