Duck Tales - NES Review



Not your typical platform game for the time.  Most platform games that came out then were linear and scrolled from left to right only.  This game is more of an adventure platformer.  When you start the game, there is a difficulty select, easy, normal, and hard.  I think the difficulty just sets the amount of damage that an enemy will deal when they hit you.  When you start, you have to select between six stages.  The whole purpose of the game is to beat all six bosses and get their special treasure.  The cool thing about the game is that you explore every level trying to get the most money in treasure.  Their are lots of hidden rooms to find and secrets in this game.  The controls are pretty good, and you will find yourself pogo sticking on your cane for most of the game.  Most enemies can be killed by jumping on top of them.  The graphics in this game are great for the NES and so is the music / sound.  The game play is also very good and fun.  Overall, I give this game a 9 out of 10 stars.  Even if you don't like platform games, try this one, its awesome.

Zero 4 Champ - PC Engine Review

Basically, what you see in the picture above is the entire game.  It is a drag racing game where you control only the gas and shifting.  There are a few modes to the game.  Story mode - Not understandable unless you can read Japanese.  Vs Computer mode, and Vs Man mode.  You can pick between 4 cars and "race" the opponent.  Once you get the hang of the controls, it is very easy to win.  Overall, a boring game that I will more than likely never play again.  It gets 3 stars total.  Not even worth looking into unless you are really into this type of game.
