Topic: Vote for your Favorite Platformer on VC

Posts 1 to 20 of 22


Sorry, the original thread was eaten in a freak accident — someone else will need to run this thread, I'm afraid. I've got the original votes, though, so nothing of value was lost. :3

VincentV — Super Mario Land
Magic-Wind — Sonic the Hedgehog 3 FTW!
oldgamesonly — instead of choosing, chose to put the spotlight on Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa.
SKTTR — Donkey Kong Country (the original, 'followed closely' by Super Mario World)
Fuzzy — Super Mario World, but honorable mentions to DoReMi Fantasy and Ufouria: The Saga
zezhyrule — Super Mario World
RevolverLink — Super Mario Bros. 3
cheetahman91 — quoted zezzy, who said Super Mario World
Viewtiful_Joe — Mega Man X

future of NL >:3

Kirby's Adventure

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles
(I'm talking about the full locked-on version of the game, or in other words, the complete version of Sonic 3 as it was originally meant to be.)

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.

Hands down DoReMi Fantasy. Quality graphics , sound (oh the sound!), controls and level design. Love it.

What's this bit for again?


DoReMi Fantasy: Milon no DokiDoki Daibouken
Not only is the much improved sequel to Milon's Secret Castle my favorite platformer on VC, but it's also my favorite VC download, favorite 16-bit game, favorite 2D platformer, and my number two favorite video game of all time A truly unforgettable experience, imo

Whoa hold on nobody is mentioning Bubble Bobble , which is by the way a classic



I'm always incredibly jealous of everyone that seemed to have a much more enjoyable experience with DoReMi Fantasy than I did. I don't think I went into it with unreasonable expectations and I really wanted to like it, but I came away from it thinking that it was simply just a good, slightly more than basic platformer.

I'm not trying to "hate" on it or anything, I'm just genuinely envious of everyone that seemed to see something in it that I didn't.
