Bring ‘Em On!!

On a recent podcast, Brad and Adam talked about some gameboy games that they would like to see on the 3DS virtual console service.  To complement that, here is my list of some personal favorites that I would like to eventually see on the service as well.

The Forgotten Tower

All this recent talk about Adam’s Zelda-ish rogue-like game, ‘The Infinite Cave,’ has given me an itch to go back and play an old retro dungeon crawler.  The first game to pop up in my head was of course ‘The Tower of Druaga.’  It shares many of the same traits of a rogue-like, but is not a rogue-like in the truest sense.  It has a very hardcore cult following, and for good reason.  It’s probably one of the hardest dungeon crawlers ever created by man.  Between the extreme intricate know how of what is required to be done at each level, and the lightning quick reflexes required to navigate through the mazes unharmed, its no wonder so many give up before getting in far enough to truly appreciate this game.   If that sounds like your cup of tea, and you’re a glutton for punishment, you could be in for a real retro treat.   Continue reading

The Zelda II Competition Is Over

It was actually over a few days ago but I just got the time to post this. It took me about 20 hours to complete Zelda II in 6 play session. I can easily say I don’t hate Zelda II anymore but I still dislike many parts of the game. The music, the translation, and some lazy programming are the main complaints I have. The biggest positive has to be the combat. It’s also what separates this game from all the other Zelda titles, with the exception of a few parts in Link’s Awakening. Adam has said to me on numerous occasions that this game deserves the Metroid Zero treatment and now I am more inclined to agree with him. Basically, there is good gameplay here, it just needs a lot of polish to make it shine. I am glad that Ac and I had this little competition or else I never would have seen this end screen that made me laugh so hard. It’s technically a spoiler so click-through to view. Continue reading
