Battletoads was one of Rare's first games on the NES (yep, that's the same Rare that would later make the Donkey Kong Country trilogy, Banjo & Kazooie, Perfect Dark, etc). Battletoads has also had a few sequels and ports on other consoles, and even an arcade game, but the original game on the NES remains the most popular. Probably because it was a beat 'em up/platformer known for its nightmarish, unforgiving difficulty. No, seriously, beating that game legit is nigh impossible.

They also made HyperZone on the SNES. It was a fun mode7-based shoot 'em up with music by Jun Ishikawa (Kirby's Dreamland), which has yet to see a re-release in any form (why it hasn't made an appearance on the Virtual Console yet is anyone's guess).

I started playing Moon Chronicles recently (it was on sale). While the graphics and FMVs look somewhat dated, it soon brought me memories of those early DOS-based FPS for PC, like Blake Stone or Doom, and it started to grow on me. Also, 60 fps even with 3D on is very much appreciated. By the way, Episode 1: Chapter 2 is where things really start to get going.

Key items (like dungeon items and some others) don't go away.
All that is lost is anything that you can have more than 1 of, such as bombs or arrows. Their quantities drop to zero each time you go back in time. But you can quickly and easily replenish those by cutting patches of grass in Termina Field.

I knew about it. You hold down A, then press start at the title screen. It takes you to the first stage of the last world you played.

Here's something more interesting: Hands up if you know why certain invisible 1-up blocks in SMB aren't always there...

It's not that bad. Some people are making a mountain out of a molehill about this. Have they all forgotten repeatedly bumping into walls in those narrow corridors in the pirate fortress basement, and then again in Great Bay Temple?
