Don't mess with Alex!

The other NES game up for grabs today is Adventure Island. This is the first game in the long NES series with everybody's favourite fat man in a grass skirt. The gameplay in this version of Adventure Island is basically identical to Sega’s 1st Wonderboy outing. If throwing axes at snails and skateboarding on clouds sounds like your sort of thing then you will be in for a treat here!

Not a bad week on the whole, Adventure Island was LONG overdue for the EU so it’s good we finally got it! Check out this week’s reviews:
