StarTropics [0:00 - 2:09] In the second half of my play through of this game we exchange caves for an alien spacecraft. With that it seemed the game shifted from being a reaction based puzzle game to dodge all the attacks from the over powered enemies. The final boss gauntlet was a doozy, giving you an onslaught of three bosses and when you die you get to do them all over again. A good challenge and a fantastic ending for a NES game. Completed.
Gargoyles Quest II [2:10-5:52] A NES title made by Capcom from '92 that is truly a forgotten gem. The controls are so tight, the music catchy and fitting, the graphics are some of the best on the system. Combining a Dragon Quest style over world and a side-scroller platformer battle system is really an interesting idea. The only bad thing I can say about this game is that its too short and it has one of the trollyest (sp?) jumps I seen in a game, very minor complaints in what is an awesome game no retro player should skip. Completed.
