Battletoads - along with Rare's back catalogue - may be owned by Microsoft these days, but NES owners will always have a special place in their hearts for Rash, Zitz & Pimple, three radical amphibians with plenty of attitude.

Created at a time when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dominated TV, gaming and toy aisles, Battletoads was an action plaftormer which ramped up the difficulty and crammed in plenty of original ideas, and was rightly hailed as a smash at the time of release.

It triggered a series of titles across Nintendo systems (and the arcade), all of which are covered in this new video by Daniel Ibbertson, the host of Slope's Game Room.
