1WaveBoyMon 18th Apr 2011 Adventure Island! Nes VC! Well, I finally got around to finishing this little brutal whacky beast of game last night...And what a crazy sense of reward it gave me...Nowhere near the feeling I got with Ninja Gaiden III, but it was pretty satisfying. And make no mistake this is one of the most difficult Nes games of all time. World 8-2 is going down as the most difficult Nes platforming stage ever created in my handy dandy books! Although I'm sure SMB2 Lost Levels would like to think differently! The graphics were decent for an early Nes title and the game rocked some nice eye popping color, especially the water themed stages. But this game has some of the WORST Sprite flickering I've ever seen at times. The music while catchy doesn't exactly reach the greatness of something like Mario, but for what it is I it gets the job done. And I'm sure the first stage's track will most likely get stuck in your head instantly.But what really annoyed me about this game were the lack luster Boss battles....They were all the same AND ridiculously easy. Some tall ancient monster with a different animal head that spat bouncing fire balls out if it's mouth. The only noticable difference was that they become stronger and faster with their attack the further you progressed. Anyways, this game was quite the hair ripping blast....And I enjoyed it just as much as i did as a child, yet now...I finally mastered it. Be prepared to get the infinite continue 'hudson bee' in the first stage. There's no way anybody on this planet will beable to finish this game with 2 lives. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves challenging games and who has a great deal of patience, because you'll need it!....Mega Man, Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania lovers, come get some if you dare muhaha. Now if only Adventure Idland II would come sooner to the VC in NA! I'm dieing to give that game a go. Another nostalgiac trip through memory lane hehe. As a child, i remeber it being a lot easier, the levels had a different structure with platforms extending above the screen and you could ride Dinosaurs 'and' there was a world map with stages.
