2/27/12 Show Notes

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.
