A Ufouric experience

Retro-style indie platformers are all the rage these days, so you'd be forgiven for thinking Sunsoft's Ufouria: The Saga is simply another in the long line of 2D NES-inspired modern titles on the eShop like Shovel Knight, 1001 Spikes, and Insanity's...

Easy Mode Metroid

The original Metroid was a ground-breaking game for its time, but it feels incredibly dated to anyone playing it for the first time now. The lack of a map makes navigating the seemingly endless identical corridors way more annoying than it should be for...

I can't wait for this game to be released here! I also hope Sunsoft puts Mr. Gimick on the Virtual Console someday since it is a really great game! It kind of plays like Megaman.

How did Sunsoft get such amazing music out of the primitive NES sound chip?



Yasume said:

Never heard of this game, but it looks like a solid game. Great music too.

It really doesn't look like a bad game! I might get it! I think it's worth it for 500 points...

cant wait for this to come to usa!
seems like its a lot of folks that never played this game that want it
im one of them!



moosa said:

Wow. Never would have thought of combining Super Mario Bros. 2 and Zelda. This game has tons of charm, and pretty impressive looking for an NES title.



bioniccheese said:

never heard of it.but it looks like a game full of originality quality and style.just look at those character animations! i think it just earned its place among my NES wishlist next to kirbys adventure and mario 3.

This game is surprisingly cool. (and extremely odd when you stop to think about what's really happening)

For instance - I can't over the fact that (at points) I'm playing as a ghost with sunglasses. His special attack features him pulling his sunglasses down at which point his EYES fly out their sockets, float around the screen killing every enemy, and then float back to his eye sockets at which points he puts his sunglasses back up.

I thought I was going to pass on this simple NES Metroid clone, but this is easy and (when you really think about it) friggin' weird! I love it. I'm so glad this is on the Virtual Console.

Last night I beat Ufouria (after having to start over) and it's pretty cool. I dig it!



Pastry said:

This is the kind of thing that makes me want to be able to buy points in denominations of 100.



cheetahman91 said:

This game is great. Hopefully Sunsoft will release some more obscure games, like Mr. Gimmick.
