Spin Master (Neo Geo)

Game Profile

Spin Master is a side-scrolling action game that was originally released in 1993.

Take on the role of an adventurer named Johnny. Dr. De Playne has stolen your piece of a treasure map and kidnapped your girlfriend, Mary. Now you must set off to retrieve them both. Make your way through five different stages, each featuring a unique and colorful boss at the final turn. After clearing each stage, you will obtain a piece of the treasure map. Put all the pieces together and you're in for one big surprise.

Make full use of jumps and standard attacks to advance through the game. To experience really explosive and invigorating combat, be sure to employ the wide range of special attacks that are also available, including spirit charges, sliding attacks and super bomb attacks. Another player can also join in the action simultaneously!

Looks cool. Though the characters' smiles are creepy. Smiles aren't normally creepy, but those boys' smiles...

I've heard about this - solid platforming, but beatable in well under an hour. I'm a big fan of these bloated sprites that you only seem to get on Neo-Geo though...can't decide if I'll get this come Friday or not.
