Super Mario Bros.  -This is also the first FAMICOM game that I have played.
(Man this game rocks!)

I have not beat it yet because my Fami gets really warm when I use it, and so until I measure input with it's load, I should probably not play it.  I believe that the voltage differences between the Japanese specs and an actual US outlet may be affecting it.  The adapter puts out 16vDC with no load, instead of the required 10vDC.  The adapter stays cool enough.  And dealing with AC current may be dangerous, so I may have to down-step the voltage inside the FAMICOM.

Post by: JC on November 19, 2006, 03:04:07 pm
Damn cool game. I hate RPGs, and a lot of people say it's got RPG elements, but I really dig this one. You walking around various worlds crushing stuff, fighting enemies, and finding doors to warp between worlds in search of keys that will unlock the cage/chains imprisoning Queen Kong. Each world has a boss and defeating the boss will give you a key. It's much like a maze, as you can enter some doors that'll take you right back to the beginning. It can be frustrating if you haven't mentally mapped out where you've been. Some of the bosses seem impossible. This one will keep you working for hours.

Yeah, I was very impressed with it, especially for a bootleg. The roll / flip could have used a little more work, as it very seldomly works, but other than that, it's a pretty impressive port, given the circumstances...

I just got finished with a Goonies run...  this game get pretty challenging after you rescue the third Goonie.

Funny that that's how the title screen shows the name. I think they mean for it to be Street Fighter VI: 12 Peoples, but Fighter 12 Peoples: Street VI works, too, I guess. It's on a multi-cart and the game list screen shows is as Street Fighter 12P.

And note: Yes it's "VI" despite my continuing dyslexia.

Cool site. That Street Fighter 97 Zero 2 looks really interesting. I hadn't seen it before. And that Tekken 2 is different from the one I've got. Mine is Tekken 3 on the title screen, I think, and it doesn't says the name of the fighter "Wins," it just says "Win". :( You'd think the game would get better from 2 to 3, but it doesn't look like it did. :(

True for many licensed series, but when it comes to pirates the point wasn't to change much about the game itself, instead just to hack the older version to improve the aesthetics and how smoothly it functioned. So, I'd expect for pirates to improve from the first in the series to the next.

Hino Tori -- I've had it for months but hadn't played it. I'm impressed by it. It's got some really neat things going on, with the laying of "bricks" to pass obstacles and collecting pieces of a painting at the end of levels. I have a feeling it's a short game, though. Maybe I'll review it for the site. :)

Um. I've seen so many different ways of putting Japanese together. Anyway, the NES cart that I've got (likely from HK) shows it as Hino Tori. And wouldn't it be Hi no Tori -- if we're trying to be accurate? I've seen Hoshi no Kirby.

Post by: manuel on May 26, 2007, 04:28:27 am
Not to disappoint you, but there are actually no rules of how to connect or disconnect "words" in Japanese.

You can write hinotori, hino tori (the "no" here is a genitive case, so there might be people who connect it to the noun) or hi no tori (I prefer this one).
Caps or no caps doesn't matter because in Japanese you don't have caps. ;)

I thought so, but wasn't certain, so I didn't post it. I've noticed that a lot of people, including those who translated the Metro Museum Famicom book, break up the words differently. And if my thinking's right (I know little about Japanese) there are no spaces between Japanese characters like with English words, it's just one after the other. So I was wondering why the heck the Japanese would break up their Japanese letters based on the translated English (as kite was doing) instead of the translated Japanese characters -- no spaces (though some spacing would be necessary at some point [imagine a book with no spaces]).
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: UglyJoe on May 26, 2007, 01:41:59 pm
My semi-educated guess: In Japanese, you have kanji and katakana making up most (all?) of your words, and hiragana thrown in to handle the grammar.  You can go without spaces because you can discern where one kanji (word) is ending and the next is beginning. 

By romanizing a Japanese phrase, you're taking away the distinction between hiragana/katakana/kanji, and just replacing them with roman letters.  Because of this loss of distinction, you can no longer be sure where one word ends and the next begins.  For an example of what I mean, the website Expert's Exchange used to have a domain of expertsexchange.com.  If you don't know the name of the site, the domain could be read as "experts exchange" or "expert sex change"  :o.  That's probably not the best example, but I think it gets the point across.  You need spaces to tell where words end.

Also, I'm sure you've noticed that some Famicom games (RPGs, in particular) use spaces throughout their text.  Due to space constraints, they only use hiragana and katakana.  Since they've lost the kanji, they add spaces to let you know where a word begins and ends (although, where they stick the grammar hiragana seems to be up to the developer).

It's this and western people tend to "westernize" everything they come across. We are used to split everything up by words, so we tend to do so with Japanese, too.

Keru Naguuru!

Do anyone know this one?!
It's a genuine one-on-one fighting game from Namco!
Looks like my beloved Yie-ar Kung Fu, but with many
more fighters, but with very less difference between
styles and characters!

Try it out!

It has the 2-players option that lacked so much at the
Famicom's Yie-ar version!!!


Dude have you ever tried the Flying Dragon/Hiryu no Ken series? The first one is meh but 2 and 3 are awesome. They are action/adventure games with Yie-Ar style battle systems and ocassional RPG-style turn based boss fights.

Unfortunately there are no English walkthroughs for the Gaiden game but I did manage to beat Gaiden 2  with some trail and error. They are like most NES RPGs gameplay wise. Town > dungeon > town > dungeon....

Yeah about the mic fuction; in the game I went in a store (not the black market guy who doesn't want to lower prices) and talked and screamed in the mic, but nothing happened. So I did like in our versions of Kid Icarus and just pressed the A and B buttons on the second controller and then he lowered his prices. Im I doing something wrong? :-\

It's in a Sunsoft case, and Sunsoft appears on the title screen. The actual ROM is like this too, so I'm pretty sure (and hope!) its official.

The Hyrule Fantasy: Zelda

Although when I had finished playing, I walked away as the FDS was saving my data... when I returned it still had the LOADING screen on. I took out the disk and it said PUT IT BACK IN!! so I did. Still the LOADING screen.

So I turned it off, then back on.

Yay, all the save files are gone. Awesome.  :)

I just beat Super Mario World, and I must say that though there are many similarities, the Famicom port is its own unique game, and even though some of the gameplay mechanics are off(like jumping for instance) I very much enjoyed it and look forward to going through the game again!

I also found a bunch of glitches(I am a sucker for glitches) like:

- freezing shells in the air
- getting yoshi into castles

There were a few more, but those are the notables.

Anyways, as I said before, great game! Maybe I'll try to play through Somari soon, though I doubt it. Even though owning the cart is cool, the game is so messed up in terms of mechanics(jumping, responce, level of difficulty, etc) that it may not be worth it. I will however go through and try the levels with the level select code I found on the net.(LDBARUABUDUD then Start after you hear the chime"done at the title screen") I played a few and they seemed neat in terms of level design.

Spelunker

Short game with some really annoying ways to die, but ultimately a great classic game.  It reminds me of Donkey Kong in some ways.  It's short (only 4 levels), tough due to some stupid controls and level designs, and easy once you know how to clear the levels.

My high score: 287310.

Quarth.

Finished this one, I think.  There's 9 stages, but you can choose whichever one you want to start from.  I played through all the levels and finally lost near the end of the 9th stage (argh!).  So, I kept starting over on the 9th stage and managed to finish it after 10 or so tries.

Now I'm seeing a screen that says GREAT in big letters and has a crowd of people repeatedly throwing my spaceship up into the air and catching it.  Looks like an ending to me  ;D

Hahaha. That's funny: GREAT. What an ending. I played Bubble Bobble, FDS version on cart. I love Bubble Bobble's ending...what's the most important magic in the world?

I also played some of the games on about 30 pirates and multicarts I got recently. I got one multicart that plays "Unchained Melody" on the selection screen. It's simply amazing! I love that song and it's so awesome to hear a real song as 8-bit. I think there are only about four or five real songs adapted for 8-bit, one on this multicart, one on Rainbow Islands, and two on Soap Panic.

Sunday Funday for the NES had a karaoke thing in that played "a sing-a-long of a song by Christian pop band 4Him."

There's also this one Famicom game made after some Japanese band.  It's a really bad game and it loops an 8-bit rendition of one of their songs over and over again.  I'll look it up when I get home.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: JC on March 28, 2008, 10:38:16 am
Cool. It'd be neat to do a write-up on these, with music samples. I think Famicom Karaoke must have some real songs in that series as well, though I think it's a lot of Japanese stuff we wouldn't necessarily recognize. I think Karaoke has Jingle Bells.

The game I was thinking of was Seikima II: Akuma no Gyakushu, based on the band Seikima II (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SEIKIMA-II).  Family Computer 1983 - 1994 doesn't say that it's their songs in the background (I thought that it did), but it does say the music is repetitive.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: JC on March 29, 2008, 03:45:59 pm
Just beat Earthworm Jim 3 and Guevara. Both of them are really fun games.

Earthworm Jim 3 has, iirc, six levels.They go quick, but the game is great. It's got just enough of a challenge to make it fun, where most pirate originals are either too easy or too hard. The last two levels are cool because it adds a new element, this dog you have to help get through the level.

Guevara is really cool, and it reminds me a lot of today's games, where it's impossible to die because you just respawn in the same spot you died. So, the challenge is less about living and more about dying the fewest times possible. It's a tough one, though, because you've got all kinds of enemies thrown at you.

I played through Ai Senshi Nicol (FDS) for like 3 times. I really like this game! My only complaint is that it could have been a little more challenging. It's a shame it was never released here. At least, for commun players that don't have a FDS.

I'm also playing Nazo no Kabe - Block Kuzushi from Konami! A great game like Arkanoid, but only better.

A game called Jewelry. It's like tetris except every piece is 1 wide by 3 tall. Each cube in the piece is a different color, and pushing A moves the colors down. You need to get at lease 3 of the same color in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line to remove those blocks. Before the end of ever level there is also a joker piece that comes down (it is white and acts as any color) and the color it hits is the color that gets removed from the game. (if you hit a yellow with it all yellow cubes disappear)

I think its an HK original but I could be wrong.

Damn I don't remember playing games like that for a while. I used to do that a lot in my younger years though. I used to play Zelda a link to the past for hours and hours until I discovered everything. I played it so much that I still remember where everything is.  :D

I was playing a pirate Mario 2 cart on my NES. Had fun, but even better than the game was the list of instructions on the converter.

It's a NASA Converter, nothing special, and it reads as follows:

QuoteREMARKS: Since this is a sophisticated apparatus, should avoid to operate or to store under extreme temperature also avoid violent bumps is necessary; moreover, never disassemble it.
  • Combining your game cartridge with this converter, then, insert them into your console.

  • If you find the picture is flashing or isn't operating after turning the power on, please push "reset" button 3 to 5 seconds and releave. It will be ok.



My favorite part is their warm reassurance that things will be okay. I wish people told me that more often!

A side note, the converter got its revenge on me. When I went to remove the cart and converter from the NES the ribbon came out... and that was all. ::)
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: 133MHz on June 01, 2008, 11:50:21 am
I have the same converter, but the ribbon never gave up on me :P. Does your converter use a lockout chip stunner circuit? Mine does and I'm looking to replace it with a real CIC for instant boot-up times.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: PatMan33 on June 01, 2008, 11:58:11 am
You've got me on that question, I'd try to find out for you but I'm not quite sure how I'd go about it.

There's a nice dissertation on the back of the Mario 2 cart as well, looks like the cart and the converter came from the same people. I wish I knew more about these pirate carts.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: 133MHz on June 01, 2008, 12:05:01 pm
Open it up carefully, and look for an IC socket. If there's nothing there, your converter cannot work on a standard NES. If you see some kind of McGyver-esque thing with transistors, diodes and resistors, your converter has a lockout stunner, it generates a strong negative voltage spike to knock the lockout chip inside your NES unconscious so it won't reset the game once per second due to the lack of a lockout chip inside the converter. If you see a proper chip in the socket, then it's got a CIC clone.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: PatMan33 on June 01, 2008, 12:11:04 pm
There's a small cut out in the bottom where the 72-pin connector that I can see though. There's a whole mess of diodes and whatnot that can be seen from there.

The thing works on my NES anyway, so would that mean that it's there?
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: 133MHz on June 01, 2008, 12:17:16 pm
Yep, it's got a CIC taser ;D. And I bet it takes a second or two for the game to display properly.

Well it's a pretty good action platformer, it has levels that plays like Castlevania, Kid Icarus, and so on. What makes it strange is the story line. I can't read Japanese, so I have no idea what any of the text says, but each boss starts out as Darth Vader and then turns into some animal/alien. Luke has to rescue Chewbacca from some unknown planet, there are Stormtroopers on a Jawa transport, it's like the developers never actually watched "A New Hope".

That's the only one Namco ever made. There were later games made by a different company, whose name escapes me at the moment. They more closely followed the story though.

I just received and played all my pirates from Argentina. Awesome! A few highlights:

Dance Dance Revolution -- Decently OK (and is difficult to match up the arrows to score points, but has an upbeat version of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On!"

World Heroes -- your average fighter, but the way the dudes fight is cool. They have flowing garb. It's neat to see them jump through the air.

Aladdin II -- Kinda neat how Aladdin jumps and hangs. Otherwise, I didn't get to into it.

The Dragon -- the best game of the lot! Not only is it fun, but it's got two language options: English and Arabic. Yes, Arabic. I've never seen something like that before. Really cool. The fighters are ripped from Mortal Kombat, but nothing else is. It's not like any of the other fighters. These dudes actually worked hard to make the game. They didn't just steal everything.

Fatal Fury 2 -- Terrible. I would never want to play it again. It's piss poor ripoff of SF pirates.

Mickey Mania -- awesome because it's in black and white, except for Mickey. At least the first level is. It's tough, but fun.

Super Donkey Kong -- this is unlike any I've seen. I can't wait to post screens of this one. Everything about the game is great. I think it's the original pirated Super Donkey Kong, not some later version.

Earthworm Jim 2 -- poor compared to Earthworm Jim 3. It's rough and tough. I'll have to tackle it again when I have patience.

I got a few more games, but haven't tried them: Super Bros. 8, Toy Story, etc.

Do you need to press the buttons hard?

If not, hold the controller BACKWARDS so the buttons  are facing away.

Put your thumb on the back, pinky on the side, and  that other stupid finger on the side. I've found you can press buttons quickly with your Pointer and Middle fingers.


I dunno how big the Hyper controller thing is, though :P

http://page4.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/d84587992 final price is pretty expensive, and the box are yellowed, 3 days remaining.

Shin Onigashima. Ever since I saw the trophy of Donbe & Hikari on SSB Melee I've wanted to know what it's all about. Now that I can actually understand the dialogue in the game, I decided to buy it.

The story has many Japanese folklore themes (Momotarō comes to mind) and the music is fantastic (Koji Kondo). So far, I say Shin is a new found love for me. I love the cover art as well. Great stuff.

I always get to this point in the first level where there's a single enemy who parachutes in.  I shoot him and grab his power-up dealy and then wait for him to drop in again.  I keep this up for about 10 minutes.  All of the power-ups that I collect extend the life bar so I can take two or three hits without dying.  The game's not so hard after that.

I've actually never played it on cartridge. When I was Four, I had an emulator and a ton of games. I've been playing it on Nesplay (http://www.nesplay.com)

When I was four the PC Engine and Sega Master System were released.  As well as Street Fighter 1, Double Dragon, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, Contra, Castlevaina, Zelda II for the famicom.  NES got Zelda and Megaman.  I just realized how much things used to rule when I was four.

P.S. - I am the same age as the famicom.

Laser Discs!!! I heard that in Japan they actually had a "Hi-Def" LD player. Of course this was hi-def in a a late 90's sense. I've got a singe and a double LD version of A New Hope but I haven't gotten the rest of the trilogy yet. I mainly stick to Criterion Collection LD's. Do you collect laser discs as well Manuel?

I only saw a Laser Disc in person once in my life. But yeah being a Famicom collector and Star Wars nerd, it's near blasphemy not to have the FC game. Oh and I have a Star Wars tattoo, I believe that's a win in the nerd contest.

Yeah, even when they were produced LD's weren't widely known. The average price of one was around $80 bucks, way to much. Some feel that they have better visual quality than dvd's though. I just like to get the one's that were never released on dvd.

The Goonies was filmed in Astoria, Oregon. I've been to the house and other places from the movie. The town has a festival on every 5th anniversary (I think it's every 5 years) of the movie.

EDIT: Looks like they had a 20th anniversary festival (doesn't sound like it's every 5 years). I just moved to Oregon in 2002, so it was the only one I ever heard about.

It's a non-conventional platformer.  The enemies don't make sense, some of your attacks are pointless, shops sell you items that you hurt you.  I imagine the dialog is weird, too.  The rom is worth checking out (although I may start looking for the cart, soon).

The Goonies has a very satisfying ending so don't give up. Great compilation of games you played there. I wish I was lucky enough to play all day in my days off but alas the wife wants to go places.....sometimes I feel like a cab driver lol

Just beat for the first time in 17 years...

(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll294/MX_5000/POWFamicom.png)

Strangely enough, beating the Arcade PCB of
P.O.W. is easier (at least to me) than the Famicom
port.  Once I figured out the hit detection glitches on
what appears to be the same playing field but isn't
though... it was smooth sailing until I made a bone headed
mistake.  But the last boss fight I forgot, how stupid it all
was.  Guy was waaaaaaaaaay too over powered.

But I'm pumped.  ;D

Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari ("Story") if I remember correctly.  It's a long assed title to begin with, will always be just River City Ransom as far as I'm concerned.  The key I've found to winning at the Fami version without knowing Japanese is to have played the NES version enough, that you're familiar with the product placement of Karma Jolt, *Stone Hands, Dragon Feet, Javelin Man... and of course The Texas Boots.  Outside of that, I figure if an item is expensive on the Yen scale in the respective stores, then it's gotta' be close to the USD in RCR.  It's how I play anyhow.  Just like how I more or less memorized the cut scenes in English of Ninja Gaiden, so I actually watch the scenes in Ryukenden and know exactly when Robert TS is going to be all:  "Move it Hayabusa... get to the tower of laja!"
:D

(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll294/MX_5000/HeavyBarrelFamicom.png)

The game is a bit easier than I remember it being in the arcade
or on the NES, but I managed to get dang near to the end and
ended up continuing like (3) times on a single red helicopter
gunship before arriving at the second underground facility,
pieced together The Heavy Barrel ONCE, then died and
had run outta' continues!  >:(  Going to give it another go in
an hour or so, then it's onto some nice *Gradius* action.

Time Diver Avenger is really cool. It's got a couple of features. It's always decent gameplay and a unique feature that make a game. Well, the Time Diver, as the main character is known because he dives through time to rescue people, has mad hops off walls. You climb by hopping from one wall to the opposing wall. It's cool.

But the game also has another feature I haven't seen before. Last night I beat the first boss and was transferred to some time in the future for the next level. But, I lost so I gave up for the night. So, I decided to play again this morning. When I beat the first boss again, I was transferred to the past, like the Old West or something, instead of to the future. I've never seen a game that swaps the order of the levels like that.

I played a bunch of games today. Mostly multis, testing to see what's on them, but also some Chinese originals. I guess you can't quite say you "play" Chinese originals since most are RPGs and impossible to play.

Crayon Shin-chan, the Future Media version. It's such a simple but damn cool game for an unlicensed original. It's got some great specials, probably similar to things from the anime, that allow you to kill enemies by: 1) flying like some kind of bat, 2) doing some hula dance and what looks like playing a ukulele, and 3) removing your shorts and shaking your penis at them.

Tetris

It's a weird version.  You rotate with up and drop with A.  There's no way to speed up the drop.  You're left with really, really slow or instant lock.  It's also broken up into stages and rounds.  As far as I can tell, it's 6 rounds per stage and you have to clear 25 lines per stage.  The thing is, the stages are exactly the same.  It's just a clean board every time.  Boring.  I also found a glitch: if you hold down select (which toggles whether you see the next piece) then the current piece will stop wherever it is.

I remember seeing someone's fave game was Antarctic Adventure, so I gave it a go last night again.

I never found it fun and way too easy - then i found out you press UP continuously to speed up, that made alot of sense! Now I see it's a really great game and alot of fun!

Ya, it has an awesome soundtrack and sound effects! World 2 is a lot easier than world 1 imho! lol. I didn't die once in world 2, I did die multiple times in world 1. I finally ended up dying again in world 3-2, which is when I flipped my disk and saved. I think I deserve a little break after all of that. haha. The boss of world 2 makes scary noises when you shoot him, gotta love that fds fm sound!

Well, I just finished Hikari Shinwa: Palutena no Kagami. Whew!, what an adventure! The world 3-4 dungeon was hell man. I got turned into an eggplant a million times! The boss was pretty easy though; but so are all of the bosses. lol. World 1 is the hardest, after that the game gets progressively easier. Well, imo atleast. The last boss was the easiest. Overall a great game! I recommend it to anyone with a disk system and some patience. haha. Waa? I see eggplants when I close my eyes! ;)

I've downloaded the new version of Battle City. Some guy dissasembled the original Battle City and extract the original source code of the game and he re-write the game (not hacking), so he changes the maps, now they are random, enemies can pick up items, there are mini-bosses to beat to clear the area and more. He posted this in Nesdev forums, I pick it up from the website of this dude, but I can't go trough the LEVEL 2 'cause the dificulty it's insane.

If someone wanna try and beat me, there's the Nesdev link if u wanna try. (http://nesdev.parodius.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=3995)

Post by: turbo D on February 14, 2009, 04:07:38 am
It showed the normal ending, but the song was retarded. It was a mixture of the regular ending song and the game over song. I used warps, so no level 9 :(. I'll beat it without warps when I have more spare time.

I just beat my disk version of smb2j. Turns out my pirate was missing the dancing toads in the ending. I had beat the disk version without warps, not sure if that causes the dancing toads or not. This was my second time beating smb2j, so I'm not sure what is supposed to happen when whatever is done. haha. Got to 9-2 in the fantasy world, damn Lakitu killed me. Awesome game; it said that I was a super player! :D

edit:

I just beat the disk version again with Luigi using warps. The dancing toad remained. I guess my pirate just lacks it :(. Anyway, it was definitely a challenge to beat the game with Luigi, especially 8-4! Now my disk has 2 stars. I'm slowly catching up to you nintendork. ;)

Obviously back then the Japanese game makers weren't too aware that the things they put in their games being culturally offensive in other countries.

Yeah several Famicom games had some racial stereotyping..

JACKAL on the AV Famicom, using a adapter to play NES

Before that was some good times with Mighty Final Fight

My goal is to hopefully be able to pass stage 2 of CHASE H.Q.
though as I find the Famicom game's controls nowhere near
as precise as the Arcade original or even the PC-ENGINE HU
Card version either.

Recently got in a shipment of games from JC as well as a bunch of pirate famis, so I spent a few hours last night "testing" them. I was sadly disappointed w/ a lot of the games tho. I kinda expected the pirates to have a ton of repeats, but didn't find too many games on them that I cared for, including a game that I have no idea how to play (Astro Robo Sasa). At least they all seemed to have over 15 unique titles, and decent ones at that (Rockman on one, a Street Fighter II hack on another, Contra on a third). What really bummed me out tho was playing a bit of both Metroid and Zelda 2 on the FDS. I've tried them both in the past on the NES and wasn't impressed, but I was kinda hoping if I gave either of them a shot it would be different. And while I can't say that I really tried too hard to like them this time, from what I've seen they do not seem like games I'd want to play. Oh well, got em for my collection anyway. (I got into playing Castlevania after I got the FDS version and now love it after disliking it on the NES, so there is SOME precedence as far as why I thought I might like these even tho I didn't in the past.)

Also I had thought the Wizardry games were all in English (or there was a way to select them to be), but after trying it, seems like it's half in English and half in Japanese. Unless I did something wrong.

Most of the Famicom games were of the platformer/arcade variety and, I'm sorry, they felt rudimentary at best. But you know the Famicom was around for so long that you have stuff like wrecking crew on the one hand and Super Mario 3 on the other; Karate or Fist of the North Star on one end and Mike Tyson's Punch Out or Double Dragon on the other. This is really true of the Famicom side (ie games not released on the NES). Plenty of jewels to discover, but twice as many are games that weren't ported for obvious reasons (cuz they suck).

I'm also sure that my particular tastes have more than a little to do with it. Even games that are considered to be classics (the aforementioned Metroid & Zelda 2, Mega Man, Super Mario Bros) I just can't get into. At least in those cases, tho, I can appreciate what others see in them. Astro Robo Sasa tho? Green Beret? Heck, Mario Bros Arcade? GOOD GOD NO! Some of them seem like Atari 2600 games with a few more colors and a background. Others aspire to have the control of a good Atari 2600 game!

Wow, I didn't mean to rant like this. It was just  a bit disheartening to play so many games and not find anything that I enjoyed. Well, I did like the Golden Axe hack, shame that the graphics were a bit scrambled tho (is this a hack, an original or just a renamed game?). I think my frustration was compounded by the fact that I couldn't get the NES pirate to work and the Famicom to NES adapters also wouldn't work in my toaster (probably due to how most games need to be positioned a certain way to work properly and that's difficult if not impossible to do w/ the adapters).

That's what you generally find on pirate multi-carts. They tend to use games with simple or no mappers, therefore you don't see complex bigger games on these carts much.

Oh that's definitely true, and I really don't ever expect much from multi pirates like that. There were some complex games on them, tho most of it was typical pirate stuff (Nuts & Milk, ChackN Pop, SMB, Mario Arcade, etc). Trying to play "Fancy Mario" (ie Dream Mary, etc etc) was one of the "highlights" but it's only good for a minute or two before the effect becomes boring. There were even a couple games I'd never played, but I can't say they were all that good (Warp Man, for instance, which sounds like either a rename of SMB or a Mega Man boss).

Can't go wrong with Castlevania.  It is one of, if not my most favorite series.  There isn't any of them I hate on any system (though I hate the Wii, so whatever comes out on that I will not see).  Looking forward to the PS3 release.  Though I wish they would go back to 2d on the main systems.  As for Zelda II, it is my favorite of all the Zelda games, so to each his own I guess.

So since I couldn't get some of the pirates to work right (the NES one didn't work at all, the converters didn't work either), I took them over to a friend's house to test on his top loader. They all worked fine, including "Golden Axe IV" which had some scrambled graphics on the fami. And OMFG I couldn't believe this, but right away he recognized what game it was: Astyanax. Considering I never played that much of this game, I'm not totally shocked I didn't recognize it, but still.

Just beat Kid Dracula--the last level was a PITA having to start over the bosses each time (managed to have 20 lives when I got there luckily...got 13 somehow on one of the minigames alone--the swords in the barrel one--had 5 lives when I beat the game..so about 15 tries for the last level  :P).

And the ending looks one HECK of a lot like the beginning/ending of Conker's Bad Fur Day.

This game has earned a spot amongst my favorites. 

Taken from YT (Am I the only one that sees the similarity?--there's even a wooden pitchfork on the same side as the wooden broom in Kid Drac)

/\  Considering how many things Conker's Bad Fur Day definitely copied, I suppose it is a possibility, but if I were to go looking for similarities in games, then I know I'd find all kinds of unintentional ones, so who knows.

They look strikingly similar, so I wouldn't doubt they tried to recreate it.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: UglyJoe on March 18, 2009, 02:32:36 pm
The framing is similar (big chair with curtain behind it centered in shot), but the similarities end there.  The number of differences far outnumber the similarities.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: JC on March 18, 2009, 02:38:39 pm
Well, don't you run into copyright issues if you copy it exactly? And the differences aren't great at all. What, there's a few skulls? That's the only difference I see. As for similarities, you've got the pillars at the sides kinda faintly highlighted. You've got the big chair with one character in it. You've got a bunch of other characters to the left and right of the big chair...

We could argue forever, I guess, since we might never know for sure...
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Medisinyl on March 18, 2009, 02:58:06 pm
If you were to look at it the opposite way, I don't see how you could translate that CBFD image to 8-bit any closer without using the same characters and blatantly copying it--of course CBFD has a fancier 64-bit background, but every aspect aside from the absence of flying characters in CBFD is there (skulls on the chair are a minor difference). 
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: UglyJoe on March 18, 2009, 03:34:08 pm
Really, what's in the Dracula-kun picture?  A big chair with a little guy in it and a bunch of people sitting and flying around it.

The chair in the CBFD is also big and also has a character in it, but the chair looks nothing like the one Dracula-kun chair.  There are characters around it, but they're not in the same positions as the Dracula-kun characters.  There isn't enough similarity.

It's like, if I drew a picture of a long table that had 7 people sitting on one end of it and an eighth guy standing on top of it, it wouldn't be a nod to The Last Supper.  It's just that both happen to feature a long table and people.

But, yeah, agree to disagree, I suppose.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nintendodork on March 18, 2009, 03:42:30 pm
Another similarity: Characters in the thrones are of small stature
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Medisinyl on March 18, 2009, 04:04:35 pm
/\  That is one of the main things that got me to notice the similarity instantly.

To get back on track, and to predict the future, by tonight I will have played at least some of Somari, SMW, Splatterhouse, and Kid Dracula to show my sister and her boyfriend when they come over.  Doubt they would care about the audio difference between the FC and NES CV3 games, but may show that as well.

Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Agent X on March 28, 2009, 04:41:04 pm
Good luck with "Holy Diver".  Had the game ONCE for six months and even after playing it twice a day for that duration I could never even get  past stage 2.  I don't think I'd cussed out a game, and yelled: "Bull fucking Shit!" so much in my life.  It's a great game, but the cheese factor for how you get killed just wasn't for me.  I sold it and never looked back.  I love the game's atmosphere though, but can't for the life of me understand why it's so rare and commands high prices (even loose) on eBAY?  It's just HARD.

That said, only FC game I've played lately are:

~Hello Kitty Balloon Adventure (with my daughter)
~Yume Penguin Story (I will beat this game!)
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Medisinyl on March 28, 2009, 04:51:17 pm
Stage 2 took me 3 or 4 tries to beat (I beat the boss the second time I got to it), but stage 3 has gotten me rather upset, so if the following levels are even harder, then I can't expect to beat it tonight.   As for being sought after...  its Castlevania-like image would be one aspect, then the other would be the references to rock/metal music with playing as Dio (one of my top 3 favorite artists), and apparently the possibility of King Crimson and Slayer being mentioned (I saw in a FAQ on Gamefaqs that the names "King Crimson" and "Black Slayer" are mentioned at the end or something, though the writer made no mention of possible music references, or perhaps doesn't even know the band King Crimson).  The FAQ writer also mentioned "save state", so he clearly cheated to beat the game on an emulator--I'm of course playing on the actual cart.   



EDIT:  LEVEL 4!!!    --   F'ing finally.   Thankfully the level 3 boss was easy...took forever to get through the level. 

EDIT 2:  I haven't been playing it straight, but I've left the machine on and after coming back from a late dinner, I have yet to get past the first area of level 4, so it may be getting shut off until the next time I try to tackle beating it.  I actually don't think I'll have too much trouble getting back to level 4, but it would be nice to have a password system.  Ultimately, for the game to be as challenging as it is and for me to still be entertained with it, I know it must be a great game.  Thankfully I was able to control breaking something--I credit that to the affixed Famicom controllers--if this were on the NES, then I would be on my third controller by now. 

Again however, I've noticed this game runs much smoother than I would expect.  I mentioned in another thread about how Kid Dracula played smoother without lagging on the Famicom, but lagged with too many sprites, etc. when used on the NES with a converter.  I looked at a couple online Holy Diver clips on Youtube from emulators and they were complaining about sprite lag in areas that the game ran perfectly smooth for me on the Famicom with even more sprites. I had asked previously with no answer, but wanted to know if the Famicom is a more powerful system in some way (I have a Twin).

Still struggling with Holy Diver.  I got back to stage 4 pretty quickly last night and played for a little while, then left it on overnight.  I've been playing it quite a bit today, and getting through stage 4 is a breeze now, but I can't beat the boss (I generally get there with 3 or 4 lives and lose them quickly). 



EDIT:  And just shut Holy Diver off...  Disappointed with myself  :'(  At least I know I can get back to where I was with little difficulty.  Will probably wait at least a couple weeks before trying again.  If I ever beat it, it will be the hardest game I've beated (and I have no idea what level 5 or 6 looks like).

Maybe it's different than mine.  The only thing that's different in mine is that Mario runs faster.  The time stays the same, the enemies are the same...Mario just moves faster.  It's easy to jump over the flag like this.  Also, if you run in a straight line for a little bit, the game sort of switches into Dream Mary "mode".  Whatever's in front of you also appears behind you.

I've been playing RockBoard all night long! hahaha. RockBoard is sooo much fun, you'd be amazed! The language barrier is not bad at all. RockBoard is a pretty straight forward game of monopoly, except you're rockman characters. If you enjoy both Rockman and monopoly, then RockBoard is definitely for you. 8)

Slogging my way through Esper Dream on the FDS. It's not a bad game, but it's also not great. The action stuff gets tiring after a little while. Still it's one of the better Japan exclusive RPG titles for the FDS (of course, NO RPGs were ported from the FDS to Famicom if I'm not mistaken).

Yeah, both of the Zelda games, but that's a whole can of worms right there (is it an RPG or an action-adventure?) that I didn't want to open. :) Beyond those two, though, I don't think a single RPG made it to the NES. And, in most cases, with good reason. XD

Contra Spirits aka Contra 3 for NES. I noticed the second player can't use the bombs. I guess the programmers forgot to add the select input for the second player. Plus, we got stuck in level 5 (repeat of level 2) because of bad respawning near the beginning of the level.  Another case of bad programming. It's a good thing there is an option to start with 30 lives ;)

All Night Nippon Mario Bros. (on a FDS copy [I'm certainly not crazy enough to buy an original  :P]).  

Noticed differences that I didn't already know about:

Numerous re-located (and possibly missing) items (usually I found them elsewhere nearby if they weren't where they were supposed to be).  

Also, the hammer bros. on at least the 3 level sections of 8-3 chase Mario with a vengeance (in the original NES game, they jump up and down the levels with little movement if I recall correctly, but in ANN they run at you).

I expect those must be noted about it online, I just didn't know much about it before playing it aside from the graphics swaps and different ending, etc.

Just an effect NOA thought was useless I guess. :D  Have you managed to find all the other differences?  I believe there are more, but so far there's that, and when you get hit by an enemy, you go back to Small Mario instead of Super Mario.

If you get to 8-3 with a Fire Flower, getting through it is a real breeze. If you don't get there with it, always try to get the Fire Flower. There are two Super Mushrooms, one in each of the Hammer Brothers' topmost platforms.

Is sonic 5 the one that starts on spring yard?


Yes. I wish it started on Green Hill Zone though, because the graphics for Spring Yard are unbelievably bad.
There's a cheat you can put in at the title screen to get a level select..and music! :D
Left, Down, B, A, Right, Up, A, B, Up, Down, Up, Down


This cheat also works on Family Kid. Interesting to note with Family Kid is that the flag at the end of the level sometimes shows Mario (the same one from Somari) which makes me think Family Kid is hacked from Somari.

Levels & gameplay is exactly like Somari, but it has a different character sprite that replaces Mario.

Previously, I hadn't done anything more than test my Eggerland disk when I got it.  I was in the middle of LOLO 3 when I initially received it.  Someone recently mentioned LOLO games, so I finally gave it a proper play.  

I expected it to be even simpler (in features) than LOLO 1 on the NES.  However, unlike any of the other LOLO games I've played (1-3 on the NES), Eggerland is like those games mixed with Legend of Zelda 1.  The screen shift is the same as LoZ and you can go in all four directions to get to another puzzle room.  And what I particularly like about that feature is that some of the puzzle rooms can only be completed by coming in through the right door (and you can walk out of a room to reset a puzzle as opposed to killing yourself).  Eggerland also has a save feature, which is certainly a plus after LOLO 3.  The puzzles don't have to be completed in a 100% specific order , so if you get bored with one, there are others to find, and some rooms create a door that leads to a room with a special key of some sort.  I only just started with it for the most part, so I'm not sure about everything, but it was interesting for me to see that Eggerland offered a fancy feature when I expected less.

Eggerland has yet again surprised me...  I got to a point in a puzzle where it seemed impossible, then noticed the bottom right corner had the snake thing under a "?" so I realized that had something to do with it.  For whatever reason, I decided to block it in on all 4 sides to see if that would work, and then the whole screen went crazy and an odd Lolo image showed up that allowed a green Lolo double to walk anywhere on the screen and teleport to that location. 

Just odd to me that Lolo 1 actually seems to be stripped down compared to Eggerland when I expected the opposite (Eggerland is older).

I definitely recommend you do that.  The best way I can describe the difference is Eggerland is to Lolo 1-3 what SMB3 is to SMB1.  There are a lot more special things you can do in Eggerland, and I think it may even have some of the best puzzles.  

To note a couple more special features I've found in Eggerland that the Lolo games don't have...  in Eggerland you can get a magnet that lets you pull emerald framers from across the room, and I recently found in another puzzle that I was able to shoot an enemy and place their ball in the lava to turn the lava into sand that could be walked on (reminded me of draining the lakes in LoZ).

EDIT:  This eBay store has a bunch of sealed FDS Eggerland games at a great price right now (at this price, it would be worth getting it now during the sale).  http://cgi.ebay.com/Brand-New-Nintendo-Famicom-Disk-System-EGGER-LAND_W0QQitemZ220440475433QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item335346b729

Apparently there is a similar sequel on cartridge, but I don't see one on eBay.  If someone is selling one, or knows if it is rare/expensive, then please let me know.  (I also read about a disk writer exclusive game, but it was described as simple and short [how I would describe Lolo 1).

Still playing Eggerland...  I'm stuck on a room I can't figure out (maybe I'll post a photo of it if anyone knows the game [just knowing how to work NES Lolo puzzles won't help unfortunately...I don't think it can be figured out by just looking at it, which makes the particular room a bit of a flaw IMO unless there's some clue I'm missing]).  

I finally found the map though (after discovering that the raft that popped up in a level I beat a ways back would let me float up to another puzzle room).  I've also found another likeness to Zelda (sometimes secret doors will be revealed by pushing a specific block after a puzzle is completed [found at least two like that so far after discovering that in one room with a ridiculously easy puzzle and a bunch of blocks...figured there had to be something else]).

Guess I'll go take a pic of it incase anyone can help...

EDIT:  Here's the room (the bottom right is noting that it involves one or all of the boxes in some way, and I've moved them in all sorts of locations, and can't figure out what the heck to do... :(   I expect that once I figure out the trick, one of the things that lets Lolo teleport anywhere will pop up so I can get the key.

I had wondered if the arrow shape on the left side of the screen was telling me something, but it hasn't done me any good yet.

Thanks Manuel, that's interesting to know  ;D  

Though I went ahead and looked up a walkthrough page that got me to a solution...that I'd already tried on my own in some form several times (though I expect I got them there after collecting the hearts).

This is what I found online: "Collecting the Heart Frames from this stage presents little to no challenge. The trick is to discover the method that will allow you to reach the chest. As the screen indicates, it has something to do with the Emerald Frames. To activate the appearance of the transparent Lolo that will appear and allow you to walk through the walls, you must make sure that all four Emerald Frames are in their original position before you collect the very last Heart Frame. As long as each Emerald Frame is in its original position, the transparent Lolo will appear. "

Guess I'll try it next time I have a chance to play it  :P  I hate that I had to look up an answer (I've spent a while on some of the puzzles).

EDIT:  Having looked up the Kami symbol, I see that that was a clue to figuring it out...  to complete the symbol, the framers have to be in the original positions.  Would have been easier to fiddle with variations on that had I known it were a symbol (I need to learn Japanese =P).    I expect someone that knows Japanese would have figured it out fairly quickly, so I suppose it's no longer a flawed level design  :D  (if it were a completely random looking solution, I wouldn't have been happy with it).

Just beat Eggerland.  The best music tracks are saved for the end, but you do get several different tracks throughout the game, and the sound quality seems to be beyond NES quality several times.  The ending and ridiculous boss battle are great too.  Surprisingly some of the easiest rooms in the game were the final rooms, but you had to collect all of the guardians to be able to complete certain rooms (they'd give super speed [making for a very cool rapid dash through a bunch of Gols], infinite shots, and the ability to chop one tree down). 

Having only been familiar with Lolo 1,2,3 on the NES, this game continued to amaze me with it's special features from beginning to end.  There was always something new being thrown in (I even think invincibility and the magnet ability were used only once, but would have liked to have seen more of the magnet one). 

They call the NES Lolo games "adventures" but Eggerland truly has the adventure aspect.  Quite unexpectedly, one of the best games I've ever played, though I suppose now that I've done the puzzles, there isn't much replay value.

Finally beat the last maze in Chack'n Pop.  They didn't bother to port over the intro, cutscenes, or ending from the arcade version, so it just loops back to the first maze with no fanfare or anything.  The funny part is that the sprite for Ms. Chack'n (whom you're trying to reunite with) is in the ROM, but never ends up getting used.  She's there, but you can never get to her ;D

I'm leaning towards inexperience with the hardware.  There's other unused graphics in there, too, like a full-sized Mighta, the water vial (which isn't used in the FC port), and this giant Monsta:

(http://ximwix.net/storage/chacknsprites.png)

I'm thinking they just brought over all the graphics from the arcade version and realized later that they wouldn't be able to effectively pull off the story elements.

Beat Doki! Doki! Yuuenchi (game that was later turned into Trolls in Crazyland for PAL NES)... Definitely a great game (was also surprised by a second/final boss battle AFTER the credits, followed by a final ending screen).  Though the two final bosses were rather average in difficulty (the prior stage boss [giant cat thing] took me many tries to beat).  Has several rollercoaster type levels that remind me greatly of the mine-cart levels in Donkey Kong Country.  The 3-d-esque platforms are rather SNES-like as well...

Currently playing Samurai Pizza Cats (on the same 2-game multi-cart as Doki! Doki Yuuenchi  :P)  I believe I'm near the end, but the game has been really easy thus far  :-\  Still, it appears to have some of the best animated cut-scenes of any 8-bit games (despite the fact I can't read any of them).  General gameplay is great (very Mega Man-like with 7 characters [5 switchable at any time during play], each with multiple, unique special abilities [including swimming, smashing walls/blocks, flying, digging, and various special attacks]).  

I would recommend both of the mentioned games--both are top-notch side-scrollers.  

EDIT:  And just beat Samurai Pizza Cats...

If you have the cart, does yours ever play somewhat choppy?  My graphics don't glitch on mine at all, but it stops a bit at times, perhaps similar to sprite overload I suppose (would have to paly it again to give a better description... it isn't terrible)... I got it recently and wondered if this is typical with the hack...
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?

I have played it all the way through and never had it overload, do you play it on a famiclone or an real famicom.

That happens to me sometimes.  I have a real Famicom, and I think it's just due to having so many sprites on the screen.

I played it on a Sharp Twin (AN-505-BK).  Will have to play it again to see what exactly it was doing...

Otherwise, Gun-Nac and that Three Eyes game (unsure of the exact name) were that last couple I played (beat Gun-Nac...on normal thus far). 

I noticed that the Pokemon hack of Three Eyes starts the game out at a later level...

Super Mario Bros. 3 game doctor version on the disk system just to check it out.

It's the Japanese version and there isn't a status bar glitch like the cart version. I wonder what mapper they used to make it work? It's a Doctor 6+ game, meaning it has to be loaded with a Turbo Game Doctor 6M or 6+, so it has to be using a supported mapper.

Got this CIB with its Mahjong controller.  It's a fun game if you know how to play it.  It has an RPG mode, too, which I guess brings the total number of FC Mahjong RPGs up to at least two (the other that I know of is Mahjong Taisen).

Some time ago I tried playing that game on an emulator...  I must have been at it for 4 hours.. I was sooo far in the game (I wasn't using save states, but got the Hudson Bee which gave me infinite continues) but my whole session suddenly ended when I accidentally close the program (RockNES is touchy!).

I failed it.. I couldn't do it.... Maybe I'll try again someday.

Someone please tell me that there is kind of continue code for it... :help:

(The name of that Konami game is:: 'Boku Dracula-kun', by the way...)

I also played a few rounds of 'Popeye' today. I forgot how fun that game can be, although I wish you could defend yourself against Bluto a little better without the spinach; he gets real tough in the later loops... :)   :bomb:

Mahjong Taisen.  It's an RPG where the battles are played out in hands of mahjong.  I have no idea what the story is, but I do know I pwned the king with a chiitoitsu.

I played City Connection, those cats are very annoying.

Then I tried Baseball, but I quit when I was down 8-0 in the first  inning (or whatever it is called). I'm going to keep that game though. I have a lot of baseball games but many have Japanese text or are difficult to hit the ball. Feel free to suggest better baseball games, I have at least 10.

Crisis force!!!
It's a great shump, not even so hard (when switched to "easy" :D ), of course I wasn't further than stage 4 but it was fun!  The idea of changing the ship configuration to shoot different patterns is great (reminds me of Macross, but much more effective).

Seems interesting, I'll try to find it for myself.

Last game I played was yesterday when I played "Higemaru Makaijima: Nanatsu no Shima Daibouken" (Makai Island).

I enjoy those games where you move around freely in search of quests and battles. Turns out the world was bigger than I thought, and I had to resort to the FAQ to find the ships to battle. And the clues are in Japanese so it makes it more difficult.

I just played Dragon Warrior 2. I also just receieved my Powerpack from retro zone. Now I can try out SMB 2 JAP on an NTSC Nes. I know it will be lacking in some sound, but not enough to hinder game play. If I remember correctly the music is only messed up at the ending when using the powerpack. However; it does not compare to actually playing the game on my twin famicom though.

Emulating an FDS title never quite feels the same, special music or no; and you're right, it's only the end-music that uses FDS-audio. You should wire-up the PowerPak sound mod on your system.  :bomb:

IDK zelda FDS new for $36 or 38 or incomplete with just the card and disk for 20 - 25.

-by the way I'm very dissapointed about the emulation speed, cause it's the PAL (50Hz) speed, cca17% slower than the US/JAP version. They could've fixed this on the Wii...(but if you want authentic European slow-gameplay experience, it's okay)

Famicom games played in the last period on my AV Famicom:

- Super Mario Bros: I could start my Famicom adventure only with this game, that has also been my first videogame ever, many years ago. Now I have completed both quests even in its Japanese version, and for me is a great thing, the game is identical to its western counterpart for secrets, enemy placement, etc.

- Akumajo Densetsu: One of the best games for the system, hands down. The 4 characters system has never been used again, and it's strange, because it worked great. Grant makes sense in the Japanese version, because he throws daggers. Wonderful music enhanced by the chip inside the cartridge, wonderful levels, challenge and atmosphere. Both loops done a lot of time, absolutely a must-have for the system.

- Akumajo Special Boku Dracula Kun: Game with a lot of humor and full of references to Akumajo series (Alucard vs Garamoth, first stage, etc) and Konami universe (Pentarou joins the quiz at level 5), it's a very nice, relaxing 2d platform with very good 8 bit music, and a must have for every Akumajo fan. In many levels it recalls more Rockman than Akumajo.

Unfortunately here in Europe VC games aren't optimized to 60Hz, and they run on 50Hz and with butchered screen, like they did 20 years ago. It's really a shame, because one person pays to have something that is much worse than emulators that you can get for free, even if illegal. Does Megaman 1 run with slower music like did the nes pal version?  :-[

At least, games that never came out from Japan like Chi no Rondo and Super Mario Bros 2 instead run at 60 Hz and fullscreen.

I really hope Nintendo fixes this with WiiU.

Been playing LOTS of Zelda II on FDS.  It's such an unerrated and unappreciated game.  The more I play it, though, the better I understand what the haters don't like about it.  I think those complaints are legitimate, and the history of Zelda since that game has borne out that opinion.  But there are still a lot of elements from that game that have become essential to the series: a magic system, towns, going on quests for the townsfolk, and (to some extent) jumping.

The change from an overhead 3/4 angle to a largely 2D side-scroller seemed to do a lot for making the world of Hyrule seem more LIMITED.  Only being able to travel left or right seems like it loses something.  (Jumping hardly makes up for that.)  I also miss the plethora of sweet items.  You still GET items in Zelda II, but they're only used in certain contexts, and otherwise are entirely passive.  Any new abilities you get have to be used through the magic system, which means most of the time you're just hitting things with your sword.  No boomerangs.  No bombs.  No bow and arrow.  Unless you count the fire spell, you have absolutely no range attack -- although you do have Thunder (an AoE), but only have enough magic power to ever use it once in a go.

It's also, as my friend Phil Bond mentioned on our podcast recently, the most PUNISHING of the Zelda games.  Sometimes it's just not fun.  But then you get the hang of it, and the idea of literally FLINGING Link's body at enemies in order to successfully attack them.  There are also no health drops; you need to gain the life spell (which you can get before the second palace) and hope that enemies drop enough magic for you to use it.  The game is certainly designed around this approach, especially in the later levels where they sprout those little jelly blobs out of every orifice like delicious candy.  There also aren't a lot of puzzles, just difficult enemies that try to kill you all the time.  Yeah, there's a bit of trial and error in that each palace is laid out so that you need to go a certain direction to get some keys before you can get into certain other spots.  EVEN WORSE, some areas of later palaces are only accessible by falling through pits -- which, if you've been doing your job of staying alive, by this point you're so programmed AGAINST needlessly falling down pits you'd never try it, get frustrated by not being able to progress, and just give up.

I'm interested in trying Battle of Olympus after this.  I saw it in a used game store about a year ago and picked it up, but never really played it; the last time I saw it was over 20 years ago.  For those who don't know, it has similar aesthetics and mechanics as Zelda II, but ISN'T a Zelda game at all, and wasn't developed by Nintendo.  I remember the hero looking MORE like Link than he does in actuality, but the combat (and to some extent the way the sprites and enemies move) is nearly identical.

Also, in both games you walk to the right.  A LOT.

My only hated stages are underwater levels, as you have little platforming ability and are essentially defenseless the entire time. I can flash through almost any level in SMB, and I tend to sweep through SMB2, until around 6-2, which is an evil water level, and then again at 7-3... One of the most evil stages in the game, with wind and springboards, depending on a great deal of luck.

I actually got so sick of that stage that I played to it, lost about 30 lives and paused the game for three days before continuing. If you think World-7 is tough in the original game, then grab a some whiskey & beer and try it in the sequel...

Anyhow, I'm still on FF3: I now am at L27/28 (almost all four at L28) with three of the tusks, teeth, elemental MacGuffins and the third airship, which moves at snail-speed compare to the first two; luckily, I can go back to the second nautilus craft, and I marked its location on a map so that I can easily find it on the huge overworld. . 

I have to say, the enemies in the Ancient Ruins are pure evil. Those creatures that split when you hit them with a melee weapon are horrible! I can imagine kids in Nippon growing up with phobias of splitting sandwiches because of things like this. The spots where you're forced into 'midget' size and need to rely on magic and running are also terrible. They may have been easier if I figured out earlier that I can use a few of the melee weapons as magical items with damaging spells, but by the time I found this out, many of them didn't work on most of the enemies anyway. Really, I wish that I knew about the powers in the claws at the time.

I did have to waste two Elixir (one for WhiteWiz and one for BlkWiz) in the Ancient Ruins, as I ran out of all of their powerful spells (IL3-7) and it is impossible to run from any of the encounters there. In fact, running is essentially instant-death, as it lowers your defense to zero to attempt to flee, and one hit splatters any character. 

The real killer is that these bastards award experience points suitable for fifth-level to eighth-level warriors. Honestly, killing a group of monsters that split themselves around twenty times or more netted 320XP!!!! They give great cash awards, but I really don't care about those, as aside from spells, I don't need to buy much of anything, and the few remaining spells are the ones I'd buy purely for the sake of completeness.Most of the remaining equipment in the game can only be found...   :coin: :coin: :coin: :coin: :coin:

Such a cruel game...

I also have a minor gripe that normal potions are not available in any of the outer-world shoppes, so I need to constantly return to the floating world to buy them. Hi-Potions are a complete waste of money, as they cost 10x+ a s much as a standard potion, but only cure about 3x to 4x the HP. Every time I go to a dungeon, I buy around 90 standard potions, saving the WhiteWiz healing spells for emergencies, or for use during combat, then after combat I plow through potions, using the obscene Gil awards to buy more later.

Truthfully, the award fro one splitter encounter will buy 99 potions, wastes 1/4 the arsenal of spells of a mage, and awards nearly no XP. I find myself just using low-power black magic on these things as by the time you have gotten a BlkWiz up to Lev-28, you have 18 first-level spell slots, and you have enough skill with Fire-1 that wen combined with the fire rod, yo do about 100-points of damage with it. That means a lot against the creatures that split when hit in melee that have 1,500HP or more each, but combat takes forever.  :pow:

My strategy for them is to hit them with a big spell, then a couple medium spells, then just poke at them with Fire-1 or Ice-1 until they die, while having WhiteWiz use the Rune Staff to hit them with ice damage, and have the melee guys defend. I tried having them use items on these things, but they miss most of the time (and I mean 99 times out of 100) and they end up taking massive damage (200-400 hits,versus 1 hit), which wastes cure potions and cure magic.

I also finally stopped using the 'Blood' sword, as the game was tossing powerful undead my way, and instead of absorbing HP it absorbs negative energy from them, which deal damage to the warrior using it instead of healing him. That's an evil trick!!!.   :octorok:

I'm hoping to find  new claw soon too, as it feels to be about that time. I discovered one in the ruins, but it is actually less powerful than either of those that I have equipped. What sickens me is that unlike the swords, which you can buy a second of later, the claws appear to be unique. You can't buy a second 'Dragon' claw, for example, to double that attack power: You can.t even find a second one! Did they forget to include that in the shoppes, or did they just decide that one is enough? I did try to de-equip the karateka, in case he was better without them, but his attack power is certainly higher with the dual claws. (I think that he will always have a better attack with dual-weapons in FF3, contrary to popular belief.) ...

I'm sure I've missed quite an assortment of other treasure, but honestly, I don't care anymore. The one good thing about this game is that I have not needed to do much (if any) grinding, although now that I've said that, I'm sure I'll run into a 'Willow'-like spot where I need to grind 30-levels before i can continue. . I did grind for money exactly once, at early levels (around Level-7), but it was not honestly required. I don't recall what I wanted to buy either at this point...

Possibly it was for a spell, or to stock up on potions or something that now seems pointless; I just don't remember, which happens when you play a game over a long period of time. Eh, who am I fooling..l It happens when you go senile... I think I shall go retire for the night, or sit in my chair and drool for a while.  :bomb:

It's challenging, as a good shmup should be. I just wouldn't suggest you play Touhou Project anytime soon...

Edit: Last one I played was Ikki.

Me and Da_Bear tried to play Transformers: Convoy No Nazo.
We clocked how long we lasted before game over. I think his max was around 35 seconds and mine was at first 55 seconds. I had played it before, that's why.
But before we quit, I made it all the way to the boss before quickly dying twice.

Last I played was Duck (Duck Maze). Kind of like load runner control-wise, but the main objective is to safely drop your egg down to the goal. A little frustrating, but a solid title.
I don't know why, but my dog is memorized by Duck. I often leave it on for him when I leave the home, and thank god there is no title music. I believe that the only reason I play it is because it's already running when I get home!

I've been playing a lot of Dragon Quest/Warrior 4. I've played the DS remake, and although it is technically superior in every way, I find that the Famicom game is just more... I dunno, charming? The DS game was great, but I'm really having more fun with the Fami game.

I don't normally mess around in RPGS, I take the most linear path to the end, but I'm on Taloon's chapter now and I find it fun to just go wandering around randomly doing things. It's a shame I didn't play this much back when it was new, it's really fantastic.

Ninja Jajamaru-kun Ginga Daisakusen. Pretty good game but now I'm at a part where I have to keep wallclimbing and walljumping, and the controls are hard to figure out... reminds me of Super Metroid, but not in a good way.

Pulled out the old emulator again to play 3D Hot Rally. Word to the wise, if you use the NES.emu for the iPad, DON'T PLAY THIS GAME!

The bottom indicators kept blinking, which didn't really bother me. But, when I turned off the game and closed the app out, I STILL had those indicators blinking on my screen! Turning it off and on again didn't fix it either. So, I turned it off and kept it off for a few hours and the screen is back to normal. I don't know why that game does that, but just be forewarned that it does.

It's unlikely but maybe it could have something to do with the 3D function. Was the 3D turned on? But I guess the HUD is not in 3D.

On my 101 in 1:

Contra
Bump N' Jump
Bookyman

And also today, I decided to pop in my Pipe V cartridge and play some Gimmick!, to see  what all the praise for this game is about. Surprisingly, I was quite disappointed. Pretty good platformer, but it doesn't hold a candle to Armadillo, Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2, or Daiku No Gensan, or many of the other wonderful platformers on the Famicom. Good game, but I'll forever fail to see why some people act like it's the pinnacle of platforming perfection.

Edit: And now Master Fighter II by Yoko Soft.  I actually found out some working combos with Chun Li. Or maybe it's an AI flaw, I don't know.

Played through Bucky O'Hare. Lots of neat setpieces in it, and fairly easy once you learn the stages and bosses.

Pizza Pop Mario... I love this game.

Wonderful game... I'd probably say it's the number 1 easiest game I've ever played, but also one of the best.

See, I thought most of that game was easy, but the last level... holy hell that stage took me a while to beat. I didn't use a single continue until I got there... I guess it'd be easy if you still manage to keep your five hearts (I.E. don't get a game over) otherwise it's down to three, which leaves very little room for error... and in a stage with 3 bosses, zero checkpoints, zero items or health refills... it gives me shivers just thinking about it. Maybe I just suck at Dracula Kun.

Gotta love that shoot-em-up "you died, so you lose ALL your powerups, and therefore have zero shot of beating the game" bullshit. What a brainless way to inject "challenge" into a game.

True. It made sense in the arcades because obviously in the situation of arcade games, it'd leave the player with no other option but keep unloading quarter after quarter if they wish to complete the game... but for a console game like Gun Nac? I guess they'd do it to stay true to the arcade style of shoot 'em ups.... or they just wanted to piss me off 20 years later.

Sometime I'll attempt beating Gun Nac again... it's the same type of deal as Silver Surfer, your only chance of beating the game is to do a no-death run so you'll get to keep your weapons.

Thanks!  I've somehow beaten most of the other ones at various times in my life, but the original I just was never able to really sit down with and take it out.  It actually ended up being pretty easy when I got down to it.

Post by: Nightstar699 on March 04, 2013, 07:48:56 pm
Ah, congratulations. I too have beaten all the Mega Man games, and I find the original to be fairly easy. Others claim it to be the hardest in the series, which I find rather absurd. I just didn't find anything in it which was genuinely difficult, and I originally beat it when I was 8 or so. I guess a couple parts of Dr. Wily's stages were tricky the first time, but once I found out what to do, they're extremely easy too. But then again I don't think any of the original Mega Man games are hard, in fact I think they have the perfect balanced level of difficulty.

I just beat Gimmick. (And no, I didn't get the good ending. I don't know where all the secret items are, I only got the first one. I might replay it later to get the good ending) I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it, but I still stand by my opinion. Exceptional graphics and music, but the gameplay wasn't my cup of tea. Only a couple parts of the game seemed difficult to me, and they seemed difficult in a bad way. More frustrating than they were genuinely challenging. I didn't care much for your weapon, either... perhaps I'm just impatient, but because of how slow it is, how weird the arc it shoots in, and the fact that you have to charge it up before shooting left me really bored at times where I'd miss a shot, and have to wait for it to clear the screen. It's certainly different, very unique platformer. I thought it was fun, but I wouldn't consider it a favorite of mine. The balloon weapon in Mickey Mouse III seems similar in the sense you can ride on the balloon after you created it, but that concept seems executed a lot better in Mickey Mouse III. That said, I reiterate, I did enjoy Gimmick. The fact that the A.I. seemed to react to my inputs was pretty cool, a feature I haven't seen much in platformers. The graphics were exceptional, I found myself really digging the designs of the stages, and many of the boss and enemy characters. I like it.

Probably my favorite of the three Famicom launch titles. Speaking of age, in just a few weeks Kirby's Adventure is going to turn 20 years old. Can't wait to replay it on its anniversary.

Last Famicom games I played were Super Contra, and Super Contra 8, on my beloved Contra themed 4-in-1. Beat them both without using a continue, oh yeah! Interesting to note is that the laser gun is extremely strong in Super Contra 7/8, as opposed to in real Contra where it's actually one of the weaker guns in the game.

Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on March 10, 2013, 10:10:18 pm
The key to Gun Nac is this: do NOT die. I know this can apply to pretty much every game, but in a game like Gun Nac, where you lose all your powerups when you die (leaving you completely helpless and pretty much screwed, especially in the later stages), perfect play is absolutely required for completion of the game, unless you memorize every single enemy and their firepower patterns. Gun Nac is pretty easy if you're able to power up your weapons and stay alive, but once you make a mistake, it gets brutal.

I've been playing Gimmick again... I think this game is starting to grow on me.

Post by: Nightstar699 on March 10, 2013, 10:35:10 pm
This seems to be the number one difficulty factor in many shoot 'em up games... while some others, such as the Touhou Project series on PC, are a bit more lenient when it comes to keeping your powerups (you can collect a few of them when you die), but there are much more bullets to worry about evading. Gradius is a very difficult game, I beat it a couple years ago, though. Stage 3 is the level with the Moai heads, I believe? I remember just trying to take out those heads as quickly as possible with a fully powered laser, but the double shot might be more useful for the mini-boss, which, if I remember correctly, is a giant swarm of ships attacking you. And I remember using the warp in this stage, too.... it's been too long. I should replay that sometime.

Couldn't get to sleep as usual, so I decided to play Famicom instead.... as usual.

Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2 - Beat without losing a life, didn't take any damage until the last level.
Daiku No Gen San - Beat on regular mode, as well as the much harder second quest that's playable after initial completion of the game.
Kero Kero Keroppi 2 - Beat without losing a life... until the final "boss". Damn randomized card-matching
Kage - This game came awfully close to defeating me, luckily I was able to beat the final boss on my last continue, and I only had one block of health left... and I almost hesitated, too. Boy would I have been pissed.

Edit: Oh yeah, and I beat Gekitotsu Yonku Battle, too.

Just beat Rockman, didn't have to use a continue, only died once. I'm going to play all the Rockman games on Famicom/NES back to back. Now onto the second, which happens to be my least favorite one, but I still love it.

Edit: Beat Mega Man 2. Much harder game than the original, hardest in the series, I'd say... unless of course you're playing it on baby mode.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: P on March 16, 2013, 06:01:01 am
I would say Mega Man 2 is the easiest one. Metal Blade works against most bosses. Even though I played Megaman 3 more I think it's much harder, mostly because of the Doc Robots.


Last Famicom game I played: Zelda II: Link no Bouken for FDS
I always wondered if you take more damage in this than in the NES version. It feels like you die more easily anyway.

The robot masters in Mega Man 2 are very easy, as are all their stages, but the BooBeam Trap in Wily's Castle is one of the cruelest bosses ever conceived, mainly just because if you miss a single shot against it, you basically have to just keep killing yourself until you get a game over. It can kill you pretty quick too, and its firepower is pretty tough to dodge. Don't get me wrong, Mega Man 2 is an easy game, but I have more trouble beating it than any other one in the series. (Last night I beat 1, 3 and 4 without a single continue, on Mega Man 2 I had to use 3 continues)

I actually find Mega Man 3 to be the easiest in the series, as it's the one I've played the most. Mega Man 2 is my least favorite in the series, so therefore it's probably the one I've played the least, and don't know as well as the others. I think that's the primary factor in deciding one's experience with a specific Mega Man title, how well they know the game.

Edit: And I played MM2 on Difficult mode, as it was the standard (and only) difficulty in the Japanese version.

And on the PAL boxart for MM2, I can not for the life of me figure out what this is supposed to represent in-game:

Yeah I definitely agree that that's one of the hardest bosses in any Megaman game.

Yup I also played Megaman 3 the most but I still think Megaman 2 is easier because I beat it with a lot less playthroughs. I know every stage in Megaman 3 much better though.

That's Dr Wily in his UFO! ...maybe. ;D


Played Zelda 2 Link no Bouken again.
I think the reason why you take more damage in the Japanese version is because that in the NES version there's enemies like the Moby and the Molblins that drain your experience points when you touch them and I guess the damage your life bar takes from these enemies is less. In the Japanese version you just take damage like from any other enemy. Bubbles are the same in both versions though, they damage your magic points more than your life.

That's what I thought too. I'm actually considering buying PAL copies of Mega Mans 1, 2, and 3 just for the label art. PAL MM2's art is hysterically bad, but 1 and 3 actually looks pretty good, and the drawing of Wily looks remarkably dark and creepy on both of them.

Robocop's Papa 2 would make a fitting title for the PAL version of Rockman 2, as obviously Robocop's Papa 1 would be the U.S. version of Rockman 1.... no clue how they fucked that one up THAT bad.

Last Famicom game I played was, surprise surprise, Rockman 6. Just a few weeks ago I said the original Rockman was my favorite, but after playing them all back to back, I have to say that 3 and 6 seem like the best installments to me. 3 for the series innovation and the nostalgia (first NES Mega Man game I played), and 6 because it just seems to be a perfect game. No groundbreaking gameplay changes, but everything is done so beautifully in it. Coolest robot masters,  coolest stages, the 2nd best NES graphics I've seen besides Kirby's Adventure. Obviously the theme they were going for was robot masters from different parts of the world, and different time periods, and they did it quite well.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: P on March 18, 2013, 03:43:01 am
I agree with you to 90%. Rockman 6 is really well made and it beats the crap out of Rockman 4 and 5. They managed to make most of the Robot Masters interesting again with their themes as you say. It makes sense since they are representing their respective parts of the world in the tournament. However the only problem I have with the game is the music. It's no match for the first three games in the series and overall I think those three are a bit more fun to play for some reason. I think Rockman 3 is the most perfect game with Rockman 1 and 2 very close behind.

Last Famicom game played: Haven't played anymore Zelda 2. Gonna finish the last two temples when I have time.

Ah, really? I liked a lot of the songs in Rockman 6, Knight Man's theme, Yamato Man's theme, Tomahawk Man's theme (and he happens to be my favorite robot master in the series), and the music for the final  battle with Wily was terrific final boss music. I can't there there was a single Rockman game I thought the soundtrack was lacking... although 1-6 are the only ones I've really played in depth, so I can't speak for the other ones. Right on about Rockman 3 being the best, that game made me so used to sliding that it was somewhat hard to adjust to being unable to slide when I went back and played the first two.

I beat a couple Famicom games, the first Castlevania, where I managed to beat both Death, and Dracula (both forms) without getting hit once. When I was younger the Grim Reaper used to give me hell, but now I realize what I did wrong. You have to hold onto that Holy Water, the stuff is liquid gold! It seems like they intentionally place a boomerang in one of the nearby candles just to screw you over. Both the infamous hallway of doom, and Grimmy himself are a piece of cake with this weapon.

And I played through Pokemon Red, the hack of Mitsume Ga Tooru. The music for the credits was so beautiful, nearly brought a tear to my eye. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAtvUJfuih4

Yeah they are all good when I have gotten used to them (especially Knight Man's music took a while), but they didn't immediately stick like the songs in the first three games did (I fell for the fortress boss theme in Rockman 1 right away). For Rockman 4 and 5 I only liked Skull Man's music. Maybe I just haven't played them enough.

Yeah that's one of the reasons I think it's so perfectly balanced. The sliding adds to the game play and also the loyal Rush gives a good air to the game. Then the music and graphics being so great. To bad Rockman 4 couldn't continue to give me this feeling.

Rockman 4's biggest change was, obviously, the fact that Rock can now charge up his Mega Buster. I've found that critical response to this feature was mixed, some people thought it made certain parts too easy, and many believed it reduced the emphasis on strategy and managing your special weapon energy (which is obviously one of the things that set Rockman apart from many platformers). It also created the format of going through two different castles (or fortresses, boss stages, whatever you wish to call them), as well as the fact that the transportation items were not given out, but rather hidden, which was kinda interesting. One thing I did find lazy though, is that the last boss in 4, 5, and 6, Dr. Wily's final form, all look identical. That was a bit lazy, but they do have to be fought somewhat differently, too. But Rockman 3 definitely has a certain charm that I don't think any other game could ever match, same with the original Rockman game.

Last Famicom game I played was the Pikachu hack of Nuts and Milk.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: P on March 20, 2013, 11:35:55 am
I don't mind the new technical features at all, and I love the chargeable rockbuster in later games. Especially in the X series. The problem is hard to put a finger on but I think the level design is lacking, most of the robot masters don't leave much of an impression and the music isn't very memorable save for Skull Man's music. The intro is very cool though.


Last Famicom game: Zelda II, I entered the great temple with 8 lives (from gathering the Link Dolls and one from levelling up) thinking I'm gonna explore the whole temple. But damn those bird warriors are strong! I was down to 2 lives left when I finally decided to go beat the game even though there was still one small part of the temple still left unexplored. I lost another life to the final guardian so I only had one life left on the final boss. I barely beated him too! If he had got one or two more hits on me it would be game over and I would have to redo the whole temple!

Beat a few Famicom games today, one of which was the "Super Mario and Sonik 2" hack of Chip N Dale 2. Which is odd, because the Bootleg Games Wiki article on it claimed that this game locks up after the first level... huh. I guess my copy is made of pixie dust.

I request you take a stab at the title screen for Kiwi Kraze.

I played and beat a few Famicom games today:

Don Doko Don 2 (Twice, I wasn't satisfied with my mediocre performance on my first run)
Mitsume Ga Tooru
Samurai Pizza Cats

I think I'll play Rockin' Kats (on NES) next.

Nice, I played a translation of SPC that "Is supposed to be just like the American cartoon." It was interesting seeing the names Speedy and Guido on the Famicom. I've been playing through Jesus: Dreadful Bio-Monster in my spare time today. All I can say, the main character's girlfriend is a babe.

That does sound pretty cool, as I was a fan of the English dub growing up, but in more recent years I saw watched the original series with subtitles, and I loved it. Needless to say, the SPC game is one of the best, and my copy of it is definitely among my most prized possessions.

Yeah, it's pretty neat. I'm with you on that, such a great show growing up. My cousin had some tapes he had recorded with a good amount of episodes. I've been meaning to track down a cartridge myself. I had a chance to grab one off eBay a few years ago, but I forgot to bid before the auction ended!

Games I beat today:

Mickey Mouse III: Yume Fuusen - Beat without dying. I love this game too much for my own good.
Banana Ouji No Daibouken - Getting past the quiz parts are a nightmarish guessing game if you can't read Japanese, but it's pretty easy otherwise. Wonderful game.
Gimmick - I still think it's overrated and the epitome of "flash over substance"... yet for some reason I still come back to replay it every couple weeks. Ugh. Gimmick.

Post Merge: April 09, 2013, 12:33:29 am

Just played through one of my favorites, Choujin Sentai Jetman, and beat it on the Very Hard difficulty setting only accessible via a simple code. This setting doesn't change much about the game... in fact, everything is pretty much identical besides the fact that you are only able to take just one hit before perishing, as opposed to the long health bar you get in the normal setting. This, plus the fact that there are no health powerups whatsoever in the Very Hard mode, so it truly becomes a no-mistakes, one-hit-kill game. At first I thought that this was a rather lazy way to add challenge to the game, as the enemy placement is exactly the same as Normal mode. However, as I played through it I grew to love this mode of the game, and I feel like one-hit-deaths are truly the way this game was meant to be played. Some of the enemy/trap placement in this game is very clever and tricky, but during the normal game you wouldn't even notice, because your health bar means that taking damage during stages practically doesn't matter. Oh, and for the final boss - I'd suggest using the rope-a-dope method.

Long live Jetman.

Rockman 6
Ducktales 2 (Difficult mode, didn't get the best ending. Still too lazy to find out where the other map pieces are)

It's worth pointing out that I didn't know the Energy Balancer was even in Rockman 6 until a few days ago when I got it for my first time. Wowee!

Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on April 18, 2013, 04:29:12 am
Yes. In fact that whole stage is easy with the Holy Water, even the cursed hallway of knights and Medusa heads. The Medusas are still annoying, yes, but Holy Water tears those knights to shreds.

FC Genjin and Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu are the games I played recently.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: L___E___T on April 20, 2013, 09:17:50 am
Started playing Akumajou Densetsu again - got past that pirate ship stage (I always used to die on the see-saw bit).

I played a little Akumajou Dracula before that and got Dracula nearly to his second form.  It won't be long before I can beat it at last.

- Nightstar I figured out that hallway you have to jump and throw the holy water (against the knights), then it's a breeze.  Trying to get through without using the holy water is pretty tough.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on April 20, 2013, 09:38:10 am
Very good, Dracula's first form requires patience and precise timing. I'm pretty sure it's only possible to hit him once per teleport cycle. There might be a strategy to get in more than one hit, but I'm guessing it's extremely risky. So I prefer to take that battle nice and slowly... then for his second form, I just unleash that Holy Water. (Jump and use holy water, then repeatedly jump and whip his head)

Beating that form without Holy Water? No clue, never tried it, and I'm guessing it's incredibly difficult, and a bit luck reliant, too.

Last games I played:

Bucky O'Hare - Beat it, but died dozens of times in the process.
Akumajo Special: Boku Dracula Kun - Beat it without dying, yay.

I'm new to Famicom. My 1st game I completed was Kid Dracula, I sold the cart on, with the intention of buying a CIB, and I miss it already.
I'm now going to mix and match with Cart only and CIB as I really want to focus more on playing stuff rather than collecting (which I have been guilty of in the past) Of course, its nice to have complete looking games for box art and Japanese colour manuals, but my funds simply don't allow that.

Anyway..enough of that! I'm currently playing Rolling Thunder and guys..I'm struggling!! anyone here beat this on a one credit run...?
I'm loving it, but finding it very challenging :-)

Post Merge: April 20, 2013, 05:01:29 pm

These were the 1st set of Famicom games I bought. Semi blind buys, with tiny research so they were surprises, but just to check they werent rpgs or anything too text heavy as I'm in the UK and I don't speak any Japanese (save a few words)

I've played them all and some of them are really fun, I've only played them for limited amounts of times as I'm rotating my family computer and rolling thunder at the moment.

(I've also bought several disk system games for when that arrives..again, this is all new to me) don't get me wrong, this isnt a fad, I loved and still love the NES with all of my gaming heart, very special console, considering I've bought so many Japanese consoles over the years, I'm still puzzled why I never bought a famicom for so many years. hehe

I have Yokai Doukiki on Core Grafx, but wanted to see how the famicom version plays. I love that game, I know it has its fair share of non supporters, but I've always liked it. Pretty difficult in places too, especially final level, fiendish jumps!

I'm going to have a nice Sunday morning relaxing, then have Sunday lunch with my mum, then I'm going to play on the Family computer.
Thats the plan anyway - fingers crossed it works out like that :)

Wanpaku Kokkun No Gourmet World, usually I can beat this game without dying, today I fell into the pit on the final stage.  :( As easy as the game is for the most part, that one jump is pretty damn frame-specific.

I've been kicking back with a beer every night while playing Rockman. (Thank you again, Manuel. I'll be picking up from you again soon  :pacman:)
I just haven't had much time to really get into it. I'll end up beating 4 Robot Masters before I call it quits. I kind of want to play now, but I ended up going on a 6 mile jog with my boss and a few coworkers after work today, so I'm tired as shit.
On a different note, due to a certain member's influence, I'm really looking forward to playing Pizza Pop soon.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on April 25, 2013, 08:57:51 am
Ahh, the original Rockman is a wonderful game. What order have you been starting with? The one I'd recommend is: Guts, Cut, Elec, Ice, Fire, Bomb. But then again, Guts, Cut and Bomb are all very easy, and make good starter stages. Just make sure you play Guts before Elec, because I'm pretty sure the game cannot be completed if you fail to get the Magnet Beam in Elec's stage, which requires use of Guts' weapon.

As for Pizza Pop, did you already get/order a copy of it? How very wise of you to trust the influence of a certain member. That certain member has great taste in games, and an electrifying sense of fashion.

The last Famicom game I played was... Pizza Pop. I'll play Akumajo Special: Boku Dracula Kun next.

Edit: Just got done beating Boku Dracula Kun, and I did so without dying. Good thing I had max health, because that stupid Drillbot on the final stage took 3 entire hearts from me. That thing is impossible to beat without getting hit, unless you get ridiculously lucky.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: P on April 25, 2013, 01:06:43 pm
I usually start with Bombman because I think Gutsman is harder than Bombman and Cutman. You can replay old stages in Rockman so you can get the Magnet Beam later if you fail to get it the first time but it's never fun to backtrack.

Haven't played anymore Famicom since I finished Zelda II. I recently finished Rockman World and then I started on Rockman World 2.

Ah, that's exactly what I was wondering. I had heard a few people claim otherwise... but I hadn't been in such a situation myself, to confirm.

Edit: I decided to play the original Rockman as well. This time my challenge was to use the special weapons as often as possible throughout the stages, as usually I just stick to the Buster in that game. I never knew Fireman's weapon was so useful against certain enemies. This time I went in an odd order: Fire, Bomb, Cut, Guts, Elec, Ice. I actually attempted Ice Man's stage first, and I did get to him, but I just couldn't beat him without Electricity. I suck.

Score upon completion: 1307400

Hmm... that's a respectable order, I'd say. Just wondering, do you actually use Bomb Man's weapon as you fight Gutsman, or do you just use the Buster? I find Bomb Man's weapons to be absolutely useless, they really should have exploded upon impact. Huge oversight on Capcom's part, I'd say, but the weapons in the original are still cool overall.
Zero, have you ever considered cosplaying as Zangief? I could tell you that if I could pull off a Mohawk (which sadly, I cannot) I'd 'Gief it up every single day of my life no matter what. Good luck getting Pizza Pop, that game took me years to find before I finally got one from Manuel. If nerdynebraskan claims the current spare copy of Pizza Pop, I'm confident Manuel wouldn't mind getting a copy for you, too.

The last Famicom games I played were Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2, Gremlins 2, Joy Mecha Fight, and my pirate cart of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters. Now I'm at work, and I wish I was home already so I could play more games. FC Genjin awaits me.

Yeah I used to start with Cutman too but it was annoying to have to play Elecman's stage twice every time and you don't get to throw rocks at Cutman since there are no rocks when you encounter him the second time. Then I learned Bombman also was easy with the rockbuster. I use Bombmans weapon on Gutsman but it's probably the only good use it has. Gutsman is slow and won't be able to dodge the bombs in time.

If I may ask, what about Gutsman's stage do most people find difficult? Whenever I see people talking about the difficulty level of the original Rockman, Gutsman's stage seems to always come up but I find it to be one of the shortest, but also most fun stages in the game, as well as the one with my favorite theme. What do you think?

Last Famicom game I played was Joy Mech Fight, I'm starting to really get into it, at the moment my best characters in it are Flame, Giant, and Neo. I'd say it's tied with TMNT: Tournament Fighters for best 8-bit fighting game.

Last NES game I played was Shatterhand last night... beat it without dying, which I was pretty proud of because I tend to make stupid mistakes on the last stage of that game.

For me as a kid it was probably the lifts that suddenly tip you off. Until you get used to it could cost you many lives.

I would say the hardest non-fortress stage is probably Iceman's stage. Especially the part with the platforms that doubles as indestructible enemies (since they shoot at you). They are so unpredictable. Now when I start with Bombman however, I have the magnet beam on that stage so it's not such a big deal anymore. The disappearing blocks of course, used to be annoying too but after several years of Rockman experience they aren't so bad anymore.

Nightstar, there is no way I can pull off a Zangief cosplay on the daily, hell, not even once. I don't have the physique to even consider it. I use the buster on Guts most of the time, but I'll use the bombs every so often just for the hell of it. I agree, they should have been programmed to explode upon impact. I NEVER use them outside the occasional Guts fight. I agree as far as that stage being short and fun. The lifts never give me trouble. If anything, the flying platforms in Ice Man's stage, after the disappearing platforms piss me off. Dem bullets...

Last Famicom game I played was Layla. Made it to Asteroid 3 before I lost a life, but I was done. It's a fun game, but I can't get used to the weird, "on wheels" physics of it.

I just beat my first FC (exclusive) game: Jumpin' Kid AKA Jack the Giant Slayer. Damn, this game is tedious, though.


Is that game any good? That is one of the very few platformers I haven't played, but I looked it up and it appeared to be pretty good.

Quote from: P on April 27, 2013, 04:40:29 pm
For me as a kid it was probably the lifts that suddenly tip you off. Until you get used to it could cost you many lives.

I would say the hardest non-fortress stage is probably Iceman's stage. Especially the part with the platforms that doubles as indestructible enemies (since they shoot at you). They are so unpredictable. Now when I start with Bombman however, I have the magnet beam on that stage so it's not such a big deal anymore. The disappearing blocks of course, used to be annoying too but after several years of Rockman experience they aren't so bad anymore.


Ahh, I always loved the lifts in Gutsman's stage. Once you memorize  how they work, it can be cleared without issue using precise timing. But Ice Man's stage was one I always dreaded... although yesterday I cleared it pretty easily, I remember those shooting platforms being terribly random and glitchy, sometimes I'd get shot and fall right through the platform. Of course the Magnet Beam makes that part easier, but to this day I still get slightly nervous at that point in the stage, Magnet Beam or not. But Ice Man himself as a boss? Boy is he impossible unless you use Electricity. His Ice Shots HURT. Real bad, three mistakes and you're done. The timing to dodge his shots consistently is so precise that I could never even imagine beating him with the buster... and I tried to do so yesterday, I failed.

A very fun thing to do in the Rockman games is force yourself to use the weaker weapons often, or in situations where their use is limited. Weapons like the bombs in Rockman 1, the Top Spin in Rockman 3, the Charge Kick in Rockman 5, etc. I've found a great deal of replay value by utilizing weapons in this way, and it's actually helped me discover situations where the  weapons actually do come in handy. (But not the bombs in Rockman 1... those are just awful. Oh well)

Last Famicom game I played was Gremlins 2.

I wasn't hugely impressed with it to be honest. The control is not the tightest. Enemy placement is frustrating. Hit detection is a bit biased against you. These are obviously manageable, since I managed to beat the game and it limits you to 9 (single-life) continues.

The most frustrating thing is in the powerup mechanics. Your default jump is tediously weak. You can earn up to two stages of upgrades by picking up springs, but you lose them EVERY time you take a hit. You can also upgrade your shot against bosses by picking up beans, but you also drop them EVERY time you get hit. I wasted a lot of time in several awkward places shooting respawning enemies repeatedly waiting for them to drop a spring or two that I desperately needed.

To be honest, a couple of those traits actually remind me of Shadow of the Ninja/Kage, one of my favorite games... (losing powerups after being hit, single-life continues, etc) But regardless, based on your description I think I'll opt not to try that game. Games being hard due to controlling an underpowered character isn't challenging, it's just a sign of bad game design.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on April 28, 2013, 07:38:45 am
I haven't played a lot of Shadow of the Ninja, but I was pretty impressed with it from the first couple of stages. Natsume was a pretty underrated minor developer. The gameplay of SotN is fast, smooth, and even 2P co-op which is unusual in platforming action games. Jumpin' Kid is none of those things. I also found the graphics underwhelming for a game published in 1990.

And the bosses were very poorly programmed pushovers. The final boss -- THE giant at the top of the beanstalk (this is a Jack and the Beanstalk interpretation) -- is seriously a statue that throws fireballs in a slow, predictable pattern. If you stand directly at his feet, he can't even hit you. I took more hits from the bats circling in his room than I did from him. Just jump up and take a couple of potshots at his weak point right after he lobs a fireball, then wait for him to throw the next. Lame.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on April 28, 2013, 01:19:49 pm
Tell me about it, I'd say that Natsume is tied with Irem for my favorite game company. I'd recommend you put some more time into Shadow of the Ninja if you get the chance... it's a tough game, but in the good sort of way, it's extremely skillful and the boss battles are some of the best.

Wow, when you stand near  his feet, are you able to cause damage to him? If so, a genuine safespot for the final boss battle, that's pretty weak. The difficulty of this game appears to be grossly imbalanced.

I just got done playing Joy Mech Fight, beat the story mode. It took quite a while, there are many opponents to do battle with. Now to track down and favorite the soundtrack for this game on YouTube... the music was so great it almost distracted me from the fights. Almost

So I sat down 20 minutes ago to play my Famicom, when I realized it's been on since last night. It was pretty damn warm near the vents, and the RF port almost burnt my damn finger. Just played a little Blade Buster on my Everdrive, and damn, it was awesome being able to play it on actual hardware.
(http://i.imgur.com/CQEN0nZ.jpg)
The reason my Famicom was on last night was because I was playing UTACO , a neat music game based on the above famicase entry. The creator said you can use the Player 2 mic to actually "sing", registering hits, but it apparently doesn't work.

I seriously check it like 5 times before I leave.  have never heard of Blade Buster until now but I did look up a couple screenshots of it, and oddly enough some of the screenshots resembled a shoot 'em up while others resembled a platformer. Huh.

Last Famicom game I played was Bananan Ouiji No Daibouken, one of my favorites. This time I was able to pass the quiz sections thanks to a Japanese website I found which contained the answers. Victory is mine, the Bell Pepper King was defeated!

My mic only works when it wants to in Zelda and it never seems to work when I'm in a shop in Palutena, so this game would be impossible to play with the mic for me. I suspect it just needs some cleaning though.

Don't smoke pot and neglect your treasured imported consoles, kids. Blade Buster is fun. As P said, the music is excellent. It's a caravan shooter like Star Soldier, but better.

Just had my first taste of Micro Genius. Bought Creatom and Thunder Warrior from fcgamer. They came in the mail today, and I just got done testing them. Thunder Warrior has the potential to be a decent platformer, but the controls aren't the tightest. We'll see if I can get used to them. Creatom is an odd puzzle game. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do yet.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 04, 2013, 07:02:45 pm
Ah, I love Thunder Warrior! Although my copy of it only works on my clone, and I have to take the board out of the cartridge before it will play... regardless, I love the Chinese mythological theme of it, and the music is great. The bosses are pretty cool too. I'd consider the main flaw of Thunder Warrior to be how underpowered your character is if you die, therefore losing all your powerups. The difficulty of this game is similar to that of a shoot 'em up, in that regard.

I've been playing lots of Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2: Karakuri Land today. I had a strong suspicion that there existed hidden bonus rooms in this game, besides the few I had already found. Sure enough, I proved my suspicion correct. Secret bonus rooms found in the Forest Railroad, and the Maze (2nd to last level).
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 04, 2013, 07:21:33 pm
Thunder Warrior's platforming controls are similar to Ninja Jajamaru: Ginga Daisakusen. The jump is entirely too short, and there's an over-reliance on a less-than-easy-to-use dash mechanism to compensate. Still, both games have a lot to offer, and I'll try to adapt.

Do you have an original Micro Genius cart? That's what I bought, and it plays perfectly on my AV Famicom (at least the first level, which is all I've seen as I'm terrible so far at the game).
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 04, 2013, 07:30:12 pm
Yes, my copy is 100% original (I've never seen a pirated copy of it unless you count the Gluk version). And I've never once gotten it to work on my AV Famicom, I've gotten it to work twice on my Famiclone, I had to take the board out and put it in the console, then move it around in a very specific way before it'd load up. Then when I finally got it to work for the first time, after 2 years of owning it... I beat it. Twice. It was awesome, but I've never gotten it to work since.

I'll have to try Ginga Daisakusen someday, the only Jajamaru game I own is the original Ninja Kun.

What a coincidence you played Chuka Taisen, that's one of the games I have coming in the mail for me right now. Although I do have Cloud Master on Master System, I noticed the Famicom version has a few different levels and bosses.

So far today I've beaten Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu, and Don Doko Don 2 (without dying). Hiryu No Ken Special: Fighting Wars will be next.

I've got seven games in here that I'd never played before, but I've only had time to test the first three: Ultraman Club, Magical Tururuuto-Kun 2, and Getsu Fuuma Den. All three seem pretty solid from my first playthroughs of them. I've already added Ultraman to my collection, and it's rare for me to add a game to my collection after only 10-15 minutes playing it.

Just got done testing my last two games from the shipment: Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2 and Cosmo Police Galivan. Both are impressive titles. KY2 is a huge improvement over the first one, which we got as Kid Niki. I never cared much for that game, but this sequel is better in every way possible. But Cosmo Police Galivan, wow. I don't know why we didn't get this on in the States. It's something else; I'm just hoping this game will be playable for me, since there is some in-game dialogue in Japanese. I hope I'm not missing too much.

Last game I played was Don Doko Don 2. Usually I beat this game without dying, this time I stupidly fell into a pit on stage 4, but played the game through from there. I think I'll give it a proper playthrough now, to make up for my poor performance yesterday.

Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 08, 2013, 08:04:35 pm
Tell me about it... and I love the original Kid Niki, but KY2 is one of the best platformers ever. I'd also recommend you play Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 3, too... but it's completely different from the first two games. I'd consider it to be inferior to KY2, but it's still great in its own ways. In the 3rd installment, Yanchamaru looks completely different, and he uses a staff as his weapon, rather than a sword. Your default attack is firing a wave attack from the staff, and the staff can be used in many ways, including using it to bounce off of walls (similar to Ninja Gaiden's wall-jumping), bouncing on it to safely navigate through spikes and kill enemies (similar to Scrooge's cane in Ducktales), and poke upwards to hit enemies above you (similar to the upward spear thrust in Whomp 'Em). Oh yeah, and Yanchamaru has a slide, like Mega Man in this game. Another thing which sets this game apart from its predecessors is that rather than simply having to get to the end of each stage and fight the boss, you have to locate keys to open doors. Usually I hate non-linear exploring elements like these, but KY3 manages to include them without making it too confusing, so you don't feel lost or anything. The game retains the amazing boss battles of KY2, but bosses take many more hits to kill in KY3. So overall KY3 is an entirely different experience of KY1 and 2, but it's great in its own right.

Last game I played was Wanpaku Kokkun No Gourmet World/Panic Restaurant. In fact, I've beaten it six times so far today. Can't get enough of this game.

Gotta love how the FC version has continues, since I needed two of them to beat the game. DDII is decent, though a bit anti-climactic in that the bad guys are less of a threat than the spike pits.

How far did you get on Thunder Warrior? And how do you feel about the music in that game? I remember loving the music as I played it through. Boy are the final stages of that game frustrating, but still fun and most certainly beatable.

My victories of the night:
Wanpaku Kokkun No Gourmet World
Mickey Mouse III: Yume Fuusen
Wacky Races (NES) - This time I challenged myself to only use the crappy Sonic Bark attack, rather than the highly superior bomb.
Akumajo Special: Boku Dracula Kun - Didn't take any damage on the final stage, which I owe entirely due to luck. I'm convinced that it's 100% random whether or not the drillbot will hit you, I swear there's no pattern to it. You lure him to the ground, sometimes he hits you, sometimes he doesn't.

I'm starting to test the contents of my package from manuel. I've just got done having my first tastes of the Famicom version of Gremlins 2 (which might be a bit easier than the US version... I wasn't seeing as many of the annoying cigar-smoking Gremlins in the second stage as I remember there being). I'll need to play them side by side for a better comparison. It'd be neat if there was a gameplay variation. Truth is I broke down and bought the FC version because the label art is much cooler.

Oh, and nightstar, you might want to sit down...

I also just played some Pizza Pop! It seems alright so far. I only reached the second stage.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 12, 2013, 05:33:32 pm
Very nice, I also have the Famicom version of Gremlins 2. I used to have the NES version as well, so I've beaten them both but it's been a real long time since I played the U.S. copy, so... I can't recall if there were any differences, I think it might just be in your head... but it's worth looking into. I think that game is pretty difficult simply because you are only allowed one item at a time, and you lose them all upon death... but then again I'm awful at that game, too.

Congratulations on finally starting your Pizza Pop! journey. The 5th and 6th levels are my favorites, and there is quite a nice bit of variety in not only the levels, but the strategies required to beat bosses. I absolutely adore the drawings in the manual for it as well, makes me wish I had a scanner so I could scan some of the pages in mine.

I'll definitely be looking forward to a bit more of Pizza Pop and a closer comparison of the two versions of Gremlins 2. It might be a couple of days though, as I have other new stuff to clean and test.

I just got done beating Rockman 4. I just had to take it beginning to end. Definitely seems to be identical to the US version, which I know very well. Although, I did make an epic discovery. I was able to hit the sweet spot on the second-to-last Wily boss by charging my buster and jumping to shoot him. I'd previously always resorted to using the Wire, and jumping and shooting from Rush Jet, etc. Needless to say, I usually burned through 8 or 9 E-tanks to beat him. I was able to off him the simple way without an E-tank. Man, was I dumb!

But thanks, manuel, for the boxed RM4. That box already looks great on the NES/FC box shelf in my gameroom.

Been playing my new games, and I was finally able to beat Gun Nac. Last time I played this game was months ago (on a pirate cart which I don't have anymore) and I was unable to defeat the cruel final stage, then. But this time I did it.

Dragon Fighter and Gun Nac are both solid titles, for sure. I have NES versions of them.

I last played some Macross and Flappy. It was my first time playing Flappy on an original cart, but I've seen it plenty of times on pirates.

Ah, congratulations. Not only are those wonderful games, but the NES versions of them are incredibly rare, too.
I remember making it to stage 5 or so on Macross, long ago. Never did find out if that game had an ending. Never played Flappy but indeed, it is a traditional multicart game, along with many other of the early Famicom releases.

I think I'll play Saiyuki World 2 next, but I also plan to learn how to play Palamedes II, at some point. I tested it out today along with all my other additions, and I quickly realized that's the type of game I'll have to actually take some time to learn before I can play it.

Edit: I played Time Zone instead, and just got done beating it. Outstanding platformer, I love the graphics and sound in it, the mini-games and bosses were great as well. The ninja enemies in the ancient Japan level remind me of those in Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2! I'd recommend you pick it up if you get the chance, Nebraskan. If you do play it, keep in mind it very much is a platformer which favors patient play above all else.

Time Zone has been on my watch list for a while, actually. I hope manuel will find me one. Searching for it on eBay is a nightmare, given how generic the title is.

I really enjoy the first Palamedes for NES, and I've been looking for the sequel for a while.

I just got done testing my latest shipment from manuel. The last game I played was Paaman Part 2. It's a bit different from the first Paaman, in a good way. I liked the first Paaman, but the sequel has a bit different style of gameplay. I enjoyed flying around obstacles. It's sad how unique this title is, given how many flying superheroes had games on the NES/FC.

Post by: Nightstar699 on May 14, 2013, 12:25:58 am
Ahh no worries, then. Manuel can find just about anything. Time Zone is so much fun, tomorrow morning I'll play it again, and try to beat it without dying. The gameplay is... kinda similar to Yo! Noid, or Wagyan Land... but it plays a lot better, and unlike those games, it has actually bosses you fight, rather than just bosses you play mini-games against!

Paaman 1 and 2 are both on my future "to find" list. Though it'll be a long time before I can buy games again, I wouldn't mind trying out those games, especially since I believe they're released by Irem, one of my favorite companies.

I myself just got done beating Ninja Crusaders Ryuga, and wow... I went into it knowing it was a hard game (from reading online), but the difficulty of the later stages outdid my expectations. I spent a lot of time learning the pattern of the final boss, before I could finally beat him, but I had a lot of fun doing so. Great game.

Macross can be pretty brutal, but I get a kick out of the transformations of the player character. I reached stage 3, or maybe it was 4, last night. It was my best run of the game to date. Definitely a bit repetitive, but still fun.

Is the FC version of Ninja Crusaders any different from the NES version? I've enjoyed my NES copy, from what little I've played of it.

I last played some Pizza Pop! This game is tougher than it looks. I burned my last continue and game-overed on stage 4.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 14, 2013, 02:13:03 pm
I'm pretty sure they're identical other than the fact that the title screens are different,  as well as the names of the levels. (Even though the level names are both in English) Oddly enough, even the text on the ending screen is 100% in English, so yeah, I don't think you'll feel the need to buy it on Famicom as well... even though the Famicom label art is sick. Ninja Crusaders, like Macross, is another game with cool character transformations, I think today I'll replay it, but try out some different weapons. (And therefore, different transformations)

The main challenge in Pizza Pop is really getting a feel for the speed and hitbox of your pizza attack, as well as the speeds of enemies, and how they react. Once you master utilizing your pizza box to the fullest, the game becomes an easy piece of pizza pie. Though each boss does have a different strategy required to beat them, which must be learned.

So far I've today, I've beaten Mighty Final Fight (with Haggar), and Time Zone (No continues used, but I did die a couple times. I finished the game with 22 lives). Next up I'll  play Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger. 
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 14, 2013, 03:14:45 pm
That "hit box" in Pizza Pop! is damned tiny. I think the attack may even be stubbier than Panic Restaurant. (Or maybe it's just that the enemies are faster and more erratic in Pizza Pop!) I blew a lot of lives on the fat mobster at the top of the high-rise until I started jumping on his head. I got so much in the habit of using the pizza box to whomp all the cats and dogs in the first level. Kind of odd that jumping only stuns small animals, but can kill a man twice my size.

I just got done with a little side-by-side comparison of Gremlins 2 on NES and FC. They do seem identical. I remembered there being more of the cigar-smoking Gremlins in Stage 2, probably because they gave me fits especially when I was younger. I actually reached Stage 4-2, which might be my best playthrough in over 20 years of occasionally screwing with this game.

Congratulations on finally starting your Pizza Pop! journey. The 5th and 6th levels are my favorites, and there is quite a nice bit of variety in not only the levels, but the strategies required to beat bosses. I absolutely adore the drawings in the manual for it as well, makes me wish I had a scanner so I could scan some of the pages in mine.


PLEASE just take some pictures of the manual. I'd love to see these. :)

Panic Restaurant (Wanpaku Kokkun No Gourmet World) is my 3rd favorite game ever!  Yes, the attack range in Pizza Pop is definitely less than that of the default weapon in Panic Restaurant. That's why learning the patterns of enemies, and timing your attacks precisely is crucial in Pizza Pop. Depending on how quickly the enemy moves, you'll want to time your attack differently. As you get the hang of it, you might want to jump on most the enemies before killing them. In Pizza Pop you have to time your attacks really well, so it does take some getting used to.

Are they the enemies that spin around all over the place? If so I hate those too... Gremlins 2 is a really hard game, but it is pretty good.

Sure, in a while I'll try taking pictures but all I have is a shitty cell phone camera, so... they might not turn out well at all. But I'll try.

I think the ones you're talking about don't appear until later, in either Stage 3 or 4. They're the ones that look like little tornadoes, and throw lots of debris and are invincible until they slow down? The cigar gremlin just sits in one place and blows flames at you. But of course Sunsoft would put an enemy that fires projectiles directly at you while you're trying to do some precision platforming. They wouldn't want to make it too easy for us.

I last played some Donald Land. How is it that there are two decent McDonald's-themed platformers (M.C. Kids is also good), but we couldn't get a great X-Men game in the 8-bit era?

Ahh yes, those were the ones I'm thinking of. Man those pissed me off my first time playing Gremlins 2. It is a tough game indeed, I think it'd be a lot easier if they would have allowed you to buy multiple items from the shop, so, for example, you wouldn't have to choose between refilling your life, or upgrading your weapon. Usually I'd rather get the health refill/extra live item in that game, because I found that it was very much beatable with the default weapons, so I'd rather use that chance to better my chances of survival.

I still haven't played much Donald Land, I only beat the first stage to test out my copy of it, and it was really fun from what I played. Sometime I'll have to play it through.

I just got done beating Kage without dying, it's been a while since I've managed to accomplish that. I was able to get both powerups before fighting Garuda, too. I remember when I was little I thought that you absolutely had to choose just one of them. But no, you can grab them both... you just have to make sure to outrun the screen to grab the first one, then you can just barely make it back down to grab the second one if you act quick. I did beat some other games last night too, including:

Dragon Fighter (No deaths.)
Felix the Cat (On NES)
Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers (On NES)
Time Zone

For Nusilver, sadly, as I expected... I attempted taking some pictures of the Pizza Pop manual, and none of them turned out whatsoever. Barely even visible, I wish I had a scanner.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 15, 2013, 01:07:18 pm
Yeah, Gremlins 2 would be much easier if you could buy more than one item per stage. They give out 20 bits of money for almost every enemy killed, and the items only cost 10-150 money bits. (I don't know what they call currency in the game.) I personally take the extra life every time they offer it. It's by far the most helpful item.

I last played some Esper Dream 2 and Seikima 2. ED2 is a fun little game, but I may need to get a translated repro because of all the text. Still, it's a fun, good-looking and -sounding game. S2 is a bit of a clunker. I'll try it one more time, but I may end up getting rid of this one.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 16, 2013, 07:31:14 am
It's disappointing to hear that the Seikima II game sucks, as I've heard that from a few people. I've never played that game, but I'm a huge fan of the band it's based on. Perhaps it is for the best that I never play it.

Just got done with another no-death run of Kage, this timing using Lady Ninja Kaede. This time I was very proud of myself because I did NOT pick up the health refill before Garuda. I reached him with just one hitpoint of energy, and I still completed my run. Very nice.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 16, 2013, 11:40:57 am
Oh, I dunno. I'm more likely to tolerate a moderately mediocre game if it's a licensed tie-in to something I care about. For me, that might mean the lousy Star Trek and Terminator games on my shelf. (I can't tolerate an outright trainwreck of a licensed game, so you won't find LJN's first X-Men game in my collection.) After a couple of 15 minute sessions with Seikima II, I'm more inclined to put it in the moderately disappointing category.

I last played a bit of Downtown Special. I dig it, but I probably need to invest in a translated NES repro.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Miller on May 16, 2013, 01:08:13 pm
I thought Gremlins 2 was crazy hard before as well but nowadays I can beat it consistently. Here are some advice for those struggling:

1.) Take it slow! The spinning enemies, the skateboarders, the big jumping enemies can all be taken down pretty easily if you get outside their range so they just basically come towards you.

2.) This is how you should prioritize your purchases:

a. Extra lives (ALWAYS buy these, it's essentially 3-5 free hearts starting from where you died)
b. Extra heart container (if Extra lives are unavailable)
c. Weapon upgrade (get this when you get the paperclips. If you die but have extra lives you get to keep your upgrade - awesome)

3.) Make sure you get pretty good at the first and second level, up to the final boss. Try not to lose any lives. After that you should be stacked with extra lives and lots of health. Should be easier from there on out.

Good luck  :mario:
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 16, 2013, 02:30:59 pm
Yeah, I can definitely see that being a solid strategy, Miller. I've been starting to take some of those same steps, but I'm still just wearing down on Stage 3 and 4. I think I just need a bit more practice with the game.

I last played some of The Goonies and more of Seikima 2. I reached the last stage of the first "area" on two consecutive plays. The worst part of the game is definitely in the jump mechanics. They've managed to combine the bizarre and counter-intuitive "starting to fall as soon as you let go of the A button" high jump from games like Amagon with a one-size-fits-all long jump out of the Double Dragon games.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 16, 2013, 03:09:23 pm
Hmm... then there might actually be some hope for my experience with the Seikima game, for a good laugh if anything. Not to mention the fact that I'm generally pretty tolerable to games which are often considered to be garbage.

Miller sounds like a pro at this game, I have beaten Gremlins 2 a few times but I definitely struggled. At this point I can't see it as being a game that I can no-death run without issue, like I can do with Kage, Dragon Fighter or Shatterhand. Patience is definitely important in Gremlins 2, your health bar can drain quick if you make a mistake and frantically try to rush past an area.  I'll practice it eventually with Miller's strategies in mind.

I myself am about to play Insector X... I'm hoping to beat this, then Parodius Da, then Chuka Taisen, then Gekitotsu Yonku Battle. I'd like to beat a few first-time games today, rather than play through the usual games I've already mastered.

Edit: Never mind, fuck it. I can't concentrate on shooters. I'll just play Kage again.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Miller on May 17, 2013, 12:30:18 pm
About Gremlins 2, also remember that if you shoot with an upgraded weapon at a boss (hurling away 5 paperclips instead of 1) it counts as multiple hits, so try and stay pretty close to the bosses during the fights. That's about it for advice.

I finished Yume Penguin Monogatari for the first time today, got it a day ago. On my first playthrough. Damn that was easy and....... not as good as I expected. Oh well.

By the way, is there a thread where people show off their collections? I'd like to get some inspiration...
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 17, 2013, 12:35:07 pm
Seems similar to a boss battle from a shoot 'em up, in that regard. As for collection threads, right here: http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=523.0

I haven't posted mine but I do have a few pictures of my stuff in case you were interested. Last game I played was Saiyuki World 2, beat it without even having to grind for gourds in the Ice Ritual! But I have work in a few minutes, so I'll play more games later.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Miller on May 17, 2013, 12:48:25 pm
Kind of, but sometimes bosses in NES-games quickly goes into hit-stun mode when you hit them with one bullet (and nullifies the other four) but not in the case of Gremlins 2, so stay close.

I'll check out the thread tomorrow, thanks! I'll be playing Tokkyuu Shirei Solbrain tomorrow, got it the other day and it seems great!
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 17, 2013, 12:52:01 pm
Oh yes, I got Solbrain a few days ago from Manuel, but I've had the American version of it (Shatterhand) for a while. That's probably my 5th favorite game ever made. It takes some practice, at first I was unable to complete it whatsoever, but now I can finish it without dying, with little issue. Exceptional game, and I'd be interested in hearing your experiences playing it. I'd suggest trying out the different bot combinations and finding which ones suit your playstyle. My initial mistake with that game was going into it without fully understanding the mechanics.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 17, 2013, 03:07:56 pm
I need to play some more of Shatterhand, Whomp 'Em, and Yume Penguin Monogatari. Those are all solid games.

I last played some Paaman 2. It is also a solid game. I really like the flying mechanics.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 17, 2013, 07:07:44 pm
Never played the penguin game, but as a master of Whomp 'Em and Shatterhand, here is some advice.

Whomp 'Em - You may or may not know of this trick, but in the Ice Ritual, there is a spot. (When you're going down the area with a trippy green-ish background, and lots of purple enemies are rising up to attack you) In this spot, you can grind all the way to a full health bar extremely easily, by simply attacking downward, in the air as you leap. The Final Test can get pretty tough if you aren't familiar with it, so this trick is an easy way to increase your chances of success.

Against the bosses of the Magic Forest, and the Ice Ritual... learn their patterns, and be extremely careful, because you'll notice at one point in the battle, they'll turn red... when they're red, any impact from them whatsoever will take one of your potions. And potions are pretty much the spare lives of this game, so they're very important.

Shatterhand - Not sure if you've played this game enough to get a feel for which bot(s) you prefer, but I could vouch for BBB, the Grenade Bot. Although you can only shoot one grenade at a time, and the angle at which it shoots is slightly awkward so you'll have to time your shots real well, the extra range it gives you is extremely helpful. If you're having trouble with a particular boss, memorize where all the items are in that stage, so you can plan out how you collect them, and make sure to get the mech suit (or "the gun" in Solbrain) right before you fight the boss. However I think the mech suit kills some of the fun because it makes it so you kill the bosses within seconds... the same reason I generally dislike using robot masters' weaknesses against them in Rockman.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 19, 2013, 05:21:13 pm
I've just only played Whomp 'Em and Shatterhand a handful of times. When I've got a bunch of new games, I spend most of my time playing those to see if they're worth keeping. The worst part of my system is that obviously worthy games like Whomp 'Em and Shatterhand earn a spot on my shelf very quickly and I don't always get back to giving them a proper playthrough for some time.

I last played some City Adventure Touch. It's one of the cuter beat 'em ups I've ever seen, but I don't know if I understand the objective very well. I'm off to read the FAQ for it on GameFAQs.

Just got done beating Bucky O'Hare, only the second time I've beaten it. What an incredible game, very difficult but still fair because you get as many chances as you'd like, so the game allows you to really learn each section. Oddly I thought the final boss was one of the easiest parts of the game, but thrilling nonetheless.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 24, 2013, 02:14:14 pm
I'd definitely like to play some more of Bucky O'Hare. That's another solid game tragically collecting dust on my shelf. I do remember that the difficulty is pretty stiff; I don't remember if I've cleared any stages yet.

I just got done playing some Saiyuuki World. This one has definitely grown on me.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 24, 2013, 02:35:33 pm
Definitely, man. I've actually beaten Bucky O'Hare three more times since I posted that, I'm addicted to it. The other day I talked to someone who said he was only able to make it past the first level, so yeah, it has a wide reputation for being incredibly hard, but as I said, it is fair.

I've never played the original Saiyuki World, despite its sequel being one of my favorite games. I doubt I'd like it, as I usually don't care for RPG-like games. Although I do have the SMS version of it, Wonder Boy in Monster Land... but I won't have that for much longer, as you know.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 24, 2013, 05:12:17 pm
You should give Saiyuuki World a chance. It's really not much of an RPG from what I've seen and read. There's a bit of strategy as far as piling up money (which isn't common in the game), and how you want to spend it toward upgrades. But the core gameplay is that of a pretty linear platformer.

I just played some Ikki. It's a surprisingly enjoyable early effort from Sunsoft. It's simple, even to the point of being crude, but that's to be expected.

It's actually the second Kunio-Kun soccer on FC; it's a sequel to the one that got localized as Nintendo World Cup for the NES. I like this one quite a bit more. I've never played Rockman/Mega Man Soccer; I've always been curious about it being a Mega Man fan, but I've never put a priority on getting one.

I'm not big into sports games, but I've got a few that I enjoy playing. These Kunio-Kun sports games are hybrid beat 'em ups to boot. Speaking of which, I last played a little of Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey-bu (the Kunio Ice Hockey game). I guess it's just been a Kunio kind of day. I'm even getting the hankering for a little Renegade on the NES (which is a localization of the first Kunio-Kun), and that doesn't happen often.

I've never played Kamen, and I haven't played Yo! Noid in more than a year. I've resold the copies I've come across, because I find the game frustratingly hard. I found the graphics misleading, even dying in the first level by falling into the water when it clearly shows the platforms are still above water. And then, what the second level is already an ice stage, and exceptionally slippery? I got fed up with it. I thought it was Capcom's second-weakest platformer after Trojan.

I last played some Wai Wai World. I still can't beat any stages of it. It's fun, but damn, is it hard.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 26, 2013, 02:48:45 pm
Aww man... you should get another copy of it! Better yet, get Ninja Hanamaru... the graphics are all completely different, perhaps they're more clear? I think Hanamaru is a much better game anyway. Yeah falling in the water is annoying at first, Time Zone has stages with similar obstacles, where the stage itself moves up and down, and you die if you're caught at the bottom. It's easy once you get used to it. Stage 2 is indeed the ice level, and I'd actually say it's the hardest level in the game. This morning when I replayed Hanamaru, it was the only stage I died on. You have to be really patient and have the controls down well. But every other stage is much easier from there once you learn them... you have to learn them pretty well though, especially the vertically-scrolling second-to-last stage, lots of platforming there.

I've never played Wai Wai World... I'm not sure if I'd like it, as I heard it was a non-linear "Metroidvania" style game, but I'm not sure if that's true. Last Famicom game I played was Batman. Beat it.

Finally got my NES to Famicom converter to work, so I decided to playthrough Yo! Noid to see if I could spot any differences from Kamen No Ninja Hanamaru. (Other than the obvious graphical and sound changes)

- In Yo! Noid, the final stage stocks you up with a lot more (and better) items than in Kamen No Ninja Hanamaru. So the final boss is easier in Yo! Noid.
- In Yo! Noid, the platforms are placed slightly differently in stage 13, making it a bit easier than the same jumping sequence in Hanamaru.

But another thing I noticed was that due to the sprite changes, the graphics are a lot more deceptive in Yo! Noid, a lot of hitboxes don't match the sprites. So I'd consider Hanamaru to be the better game... plus I like the graphics and music in it better than Noid.

You should add those comparison notes to the NES/FC differences thread. Is the music different, too? You said something about preferring Kamen's music.

And yeah, the first Wai Wai World isn't a simple run-to-the-right platformer. The first six levels can be accessed in any order, which I first thought of as being like Mega Man. But it turns out there are obstacles in some of those levels that can't be passed with your starting characters and abilities. So, the game is kind of a mix of Mega Man and Metroid in that way. But I like RPG and adventure elements sometimes.

I last played some Youkai Douchuuki. I'm close to adding it to the collection, but I'm not entirely sure yet.

Yep, a vast majority of the music is entirely different, though you can tell the soundtracks were done by the same people. The music in Hanamaru is more traditional Japanese-sounding, overall. I love that type of music. I shall go through the thread now, to see if these changes were already posted.

Wai Wai World does sound kinda fun, perhaps I should get it sometime. I remember seeing the label art for Youkai Douchuuki and thinking it looked cute, but a quick Google Image search suggests it to be very text-heavy, which might make it hard to play. Is it any good?

Time Zone was the last Famicom game I played.

Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 28, 2013, 06:50:50 pm
Youkai Douchuuki does have some shops and such that are pretty confusing when you don't understand Japanese (which I don't). It's an alright game. I haven't decided whether or not it's collection-worthy. It's definitely got an interesting story.

I just played Mad City, and beat it for the first time. It gets pretty easy toward the end, once you pick up the whip. I don't know if or when I'll ever be able to knock out the US Bayou Billy, though. Mad City's second loop gives the enemies about as much health as Bayou Billy. I got to keep the whip I was holding when I beat the first loop, so the first couple of levels were still pretty easy. It was all going fine until I was stupid enough to touch a knife and lose my whip.

I've never played either version of that game, but I've listened to the stage 1 theme a lot, it sounds pretty sick. I've heard horror stories about how unplayably difficult the U.S. version is, so I think someday I'll to find Mad City.

Last Famicom game I played was Pizza Pop! I died a couple times throughout my playthrough because I decided to test out a few alternate methods/strategies for passing parts of the game.

Oh dear lord... alongside Armadillo and Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2, Choujin Sentai Jetman is one of my major reasons I got into Famicom, that is an exceptional game. I'd highly recommend you play it on the hardest difficulty where you die in one hit, I feel this is the way the game was meant to be played, as some of the enemy placement is very clever, but you usually don't notice it because you can take so much damage before perishing in the other difficulty settings.

I've never played Lost Word of Jenny, but I looked up a gameplay video and it reminds me of GeGeGe No Kitaro in a way.

I myself beat a few games in the past couple hours:

Kaiketsu Yanchamaru - Even though I prefer the sequels, it's nice to go back to the original every now and then. Beat it without using a continue... died a couple times due to elements of randomness in stage 4.

Gekitotsu Yonku Battle - Another Irem title, this is one of my favorite non-platformer games. Great music and the final stage was pretty tough.

I just played some more Choujin Sentai Jetman. Definitely putting this one in the collection.

Bumped it up to Normal, and the levels are all still easily cleared on the first try. But I'm nowhere near clearing these without getting hit. The bosses, on the other hand, are much more difficult. I managed to beat a couple of them.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 31, 2013, 10:59:35 am
The boss battles are one of the best and most unique aspects of that beautiful, perfect game. I'd recommend you go into Battle Mode and practice the bosses so you can get the hang of the strategies. Knowing how/when to block the opponent's attack waves, when to counter-attack, and how to manage your meter building is essential. I'd recommend letting it build completely before unleashing the level 4 super attack, it does monstrous damage.

Edit: Speaking of Jetman, I just got done playing a similar game by the same company. Tokkyu Shirei Solbrain. Cleared it without dying, and I decided to mix it up and use some of the weaker bots instead of sticking with ABB or BBB like I usually do. I also played Chip N Dale 2 earlier, beat that as well.

Thanks! Even after memorizing all the level layouts, certain parts of this game still seem very difficult for me. For example, in Red Planet, the scene where you're being chased down platforms by lava streams. I'm bound to die at least once on that part, I've never cleared it on my first try.

After warming up with a little Short Order/Eggsplode (NES), I tried both Family Trainer 8: Totsugeki! Fuun Takeshijou and Family Trainer 5: Meiro Daisakusen. I didn't really figure either out, and I'm not sure if there's a hardware incompatibility or if I'm just an idiot. (I have been pretty slow to figure out US Power Pad games.) I'm hoping to get this worked out, because I do actually get a kick out of these PP/FT games.

Tokkyu Shirei Solbrain! Figuring out some good uses for what are usually thought of as the weaker bots in the game. For example, I found that  Beta/Alpha/Alpha is actually really helpful in the second half of Area B. This is perhaps the most situational bot in the game, and is completely useless in a majority of circumstances.

I spent the last couple of hours playing three new pirate multicarts I picked up in town this afternoon. The 102-, 146-, and 9999999- in-1 each only had five to seven unique games apiece on them. I had a sampling of the very common Battle City and Road Fighter. (Battle City was actually on all three of them.) Mostly I played the one uncommon game apiece that was on the multis. One had Sqoon, which I also have for the NES but hadn't played it in a year or so. The next had Magic Jewelry on it, which is a pretty enjoyable pirate puzzle game. The last one actually had Dr. Mario on it.

Battle City... I have yet to come across a high-number multicart which doesn't contain that game on it, I swear it's on them all! I beat a few of my new games today.

Power Blazer - It was incredibly difficult, I believe stage 4 took me more tries than any other. (Or maybe it was stage 6... the one with the insane platforming over fire pits.) Despite the much weaker protagonist, I think I like this game even better than its U.S. counterpart, Power Blade.

Spartan X-2 - On the other hand, this definitely is among the easiest games I've ever played. Beat it on the normal difficulty setting. I think it might be my favorite beat 'em up, I adore the music and graphics in it. The gameplay was fast paced, fun and satisfying. I will go for a no-death run of this later.

Cocoron - Despite this being my first day ever playing it, I'd already consider it to be among my favorite games ever. Definitely going to be replaying this game with many different character combinations.

Yeah, Battle City is actually a really solid game. I'm a little surprised it didn't get released over here on the NES. And I really need to sit down with my copy of Cocoron someday. I was really impressed with that when I picked one up a while back.

Tonight, I tried to figure out a couple of games I've been having trouble with. I played a bit of Creatom, and was just as baffled with it as I was the first time I played it. Then I tried a bit of Crazy Climber. It seemed like I got into a rhythm for a while, but fell out of rhythm just as quickly and died before completing the first stage.

Unfortunately I'm not sure if you'll be able to get any help with Creatom... it seems to be rare enough that very few people have ever played it. Perhaps there is a Creatom expert out there who'll show you the ropes someday. I've never even seen how Creatom plays, but from your descriptions I'm surprised at how complex it seems.

Definitely give Cocoron another chance... I know I will, I want to beat it with as many different character combinations as possible! Last Famicom game I played was Time Zone.

Working on the Namcot version of Star Wars. A surprisingly fun game, and in some ways even better than the other Star Wars one, faithfulness to the source material be damned.

Post by: nerdynebraskan on June 18, 2013, 06:39:36 pm
I just played some Robocco Wars. This game is very cool. I think you'd dig it for sure, nightstar. I do think the difficulty is a little light, especially in the early stages. I didn't exactly finish the game here on my second playthrough. The bosses do get tougher as the game goes on. It's a mix of Mega Man-esque platforming/run-and-gun stages with a few horizontal shoot 'em up stages thrown in for variety. Terrific graphics and music. An excellent game, but perhaps deserving of a hard mode.

I've only played the Namcot Star Wars game once, but I was pleasantly surprised with it. It's vastly superior to the later Lucas ones we got in the US. I think those were both garbage.

The full title is Megaman - the Hedgehog Trap

It is a hack of Rockman 5 I think - it uses Darkman bosses, so I'd be surprised if it copied that code over from another game.  But it does appear to have Megaman 3 stages in, so perhaps it is.   It's actually pretty well done, as hacks go.  Levels art is well done and the only minor issues I've noticed so far aresome collision moments and odd design choices that you wouldn't see in the regular games.  Some tiles and screens don't feel polished enough because they've been made to behave differently or edited as best as could be to be honest.

This isn't off topic, because I just played it again on my Everdrive :)

Samurai Pizza Cats.  Got all the way to stage 10 and ran out of time.  Game is pretty damn good, I didn't want it to end and only meant to get a quick test play through.  Some of the bosses got on my nerves and figuring out all the different character's unique powers without a guide was, let's say, intuitive actually.  A very well designed game, but too slow and easy if anything.  Collision can sometimes be inconsistent, but it feels like an amazing game for kids, just like Hoshi no Kirby.  Dashing animation is nice and the cut scenes are second to none, which makes sense from Tecmo.  The best thing about it though?  The colours.  The game is so vibrant and everything is drawn so well, it's another great latecomer game.  I'm currently playing a trio of this, MetalStorm and Lickle, they'll keep me busy for quite some time and complement each other brilliantly.  I am young enough to remember the cartoon show of SPC, though I don't think it ran for very long over here not was significantly popular.

If I may ask, L___E___T, what do you mean by "too slow" in this sense? I find SPC to be a pretty fast paced game, but I usually dash when I'm not battling an enemy.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: L___E___T on June 24, 2013, 03:32:22 am
The thing is with the dash, that you don't have as much control it seems, but I did use it to cover distance.  In terms of what's slow, pretty much everything seemed to be.  It's no bad thing, but compared to other action games like Ninja Gaiden 3 I kept wishing it would pick up the pace.  It felt a bit like a PAL version, it just needs that extra push I think, but then again it is a kid's game, hence why the difficulty isn't a negative.  Cut scenes were great, but everything's skippable at least.  Maybe I'm used to faster action games, it did feel on the slow side, but that added to its uniqueness.  I found this as enjoyable as the Ape Escape games on PS2, also a little slow, also for kids and also briliiant.

That's one game I have yet to play, but upon viewing a YouTube video of it, it reminds me of Shinobi. It's probably much harder though.

Made it to the final stage boss of Rolling Thunder.

Has anyone here legitimately beaten this game? ??? It looks like it goes all out to screw you over:

-one hit kills
-can't control jumps
-precise jumping requirements
-meticulous memorization segments
-no checkpoints on the final stage

Bloody good on you. I spent around 50 hours getting to stage 8 on 1 credit (Famicom) hours of frustration, skill, dedication, memorization!) It just chews you up and spits you out! I'm going to revisit it, someday soon for the rematch :) Again, bloody good on you for getting that far.

Choujin Sentai Jetman! Beat on Very Hard mode, no-deaths. Sometime I should find a different strategy against Destruction Beast Semimaru... I've found that the rope-a-dope is generally the best way to fight him, but perhaps I can beat him quicker by utilizing my special moves differently.

I enjoy Rolling Thunder as well, but I haven't played it in probably a couple of years. I might have to dust it off sometime soon here, though I'm now also looking for an FC copy for the superior sound.

And I will have to strongly consider getting a repro done of that Mega Man 3/Sonic hack.

I had a buddy over, so I busted out my copy of Holy Diver to show him. We couldn't even finish the second stage, but this is definitely a cool game. I hadn't played it in a couple of years, so I'll definitely have to pick it up sooner than that next time.

Completions of the day:

Ninja Ryukenden III (Only died once, and it was because of a dumb mistake on my part. I had no clue that you'd die from sinking ater the 6th boss, but that's my fault)
Batman Dynamite
Parasol Henbee
Doki! Doki! Yuuenchi (I've finally gotten good enough to beat this game without continuing, but it'll take more practice until I can no-death it)
Spartan X-2
Rockman 3
Wai Wai World 2

Also played a little bit of Parodius Da, but I just couldn't get into it. Which is a damn shame because I really like the music in it.

Those are two of my favorites as well, sorry to hear you no longer have them. If I ever get spare copies of either then they'll be yours, but.... I already have them both CIB so I doubt I'll get them again. If I may ask, what was your preferred gun of choice on Dynamite Batman?

I shall play Kamen No Ninja Hanamaru next.

Ah, that's nice of you, but it's ok. I'll replace them eventually. The sad part was, I didn't get to play a lot of Dynamite Batman. I played it twice, before a friend of mine spilled his damn drink onto it. I had it, as well as Splatterhouse on the floor next to my Famicom, and as he sat down, he accidentally tipped his glass over, submerging the carts in an unforgiving pool of hops and barley. I let them dry for several hours, but neither of them would work. I remember liking a homing gun of some sort. Gonna play some Salamander in a while.

Yeah I have the Black Manta version of it too, I also played it when I was young. I definitely like the sprite for Tiny better in Black Manta, not sure which version of the game I like better overall. Is it just me, or was the final stage in Saizou more difficult than that in Black Manta? Maybe I'm just rusty...

You have a pirate of that? I've never seen anything about a legit FC release of Dino Peak. Solid game, though. I just wish I'd bought mine three years ago when it was a $150 and not the $550 I paid for it last year. (I had to have the legit US version.)
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on July 17, 2013, 09:33:34 am
Yes sir, I'd love to get the official copy of it, if only it didn't cost a fortune. I actually really wish it received an official Famicom release, because it truly is a great game, although I prefer the first Flintstones game, the sequel improved on quite a few features. My only wish for it was that the flying stage, when the pterodactyl is taking you to Dinosaur Peak, was expanded a bit. It was an extremely short stage with only two types of hazards, and no boss. I would have loved to see a shot powerup there, and have the level be expanded a bit, with a boss battle at the end.

Post by: nerdynebraskan on July 17, 2013, 11:01:10 am
It will disgust you to hear this, but I must confess I haven't played the game past the second or third stage. I've probably spent an hour or less in my lifetime with the game, and probably only about 20 minutes or so with mine since buying it. (It is one of at least four copies here in Lincoln, and I've played two of the others as they're in the hands of fellow collectors that I buy/sell/trade/bullshit around with.) There aren't too many, even on this forum, that can say they've had three different copies of Dino Peak in their console.

Oh wow, that's pretty awesome. I doubt I'll ever see an original copy of it in real life. I would strongly recommend you give it another shot, it really is one of the best games I've ever played... although I still prefer Flintstones: Rescue of Dino and Hoppy. Play that one too, if you haven't already... but I think you should get into Dinosaur Peak first, it'd be a nice warmup as it's MUCH easier than the first Flintstones game, but it did improve on the original in many aspects. The obvious innovation in Dino Peak is the fact that both Fred and Barney are playable, and their abilities differ greatly. Some of the ways they utilized the character switching feature was very clever, such as the way you have to take advantage of Barney's shorter height to pass under ceiling spikes in the final stage. Dinosaur Peak made Fred's club much easier to use, because not only is it faster, but they also seem to have changed the hitbox on it a bit. Plus they altered Fred's ledge-hanging ability, he's able to pull himself up much faster than in Rescue of Dino and Hoppy.  There is some great gameplay variety in Dinosaur Peak, but I really love the powers you get from Gazoo in the first game. They were both fun and helpful to mess around with, and the animations on them were great. Although the graphics and sound were overall improved in Dinosaur Peak, I've grown really fond of the stages in Dino and Hoppy, especially the last four stages. The Asian-themed level in that game is one of my favorite levels ever, as unfitting as it was. I loved the Sumo Dinosaur boss!

Last game I played was Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2: Karakuri Land before work today.

Nightstar, this is one for you...  One hit kills, precision shooting, varied level setups and challenging action.
Several moments feel like one-time catch you outs, but they don't feel unfair either.

Ah, that game does appear to be a solid platformer, I'll look into getting a CIB copy of it someday, as it doesn't seem to be super expensive. (Unlike the other games I want) I remember seeing Toki on Nick Arcade, and it does look very fun. Thank you for the recommendation, L___E___T, although Lickle and Metal Storm are my most wanted at the moment.

Nice fire Mario plush too... what is that Famicom game next to him? It almost looks like... a pirate of Donald Land?
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: L___E___T on July 17, 2013, 04:12:02 pm
Heh, my girlfriend won the Mario plush at a theme park, it's quite big, was embarrassing to carry home a bit.
That is a good eye, that IS a pirate of Donald Land funnily enough, it's a metallic purple shell and chips inside I think, I'll be selling it with that stack on top of my playcase.

Can you guess the cart to the right of JuJu in the Famicom shot?

On JuJu, I only played the first three levels but it's great so far.  Play style reminds me of Gourmet World in that you can breeze through swiftly IF you know what to look out for.  Though I did Gourmet World feels a bit cheap difficulty and has luck involved sometimes, so far this isn't like that, it's just overall rewarding while also being unforgiving.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on July 17, 2013, 04:20:16 pm
Hmm, to the right of JuJu... is it one of the Hello Kitty games, by any chance?
I find Gourmet World to be a pretty easy game with the exception of one jump in the final stage which is quite strict, you have to jump on the absolute last pixel to the edge. But I've gotten the hang of it so I can no-death run it every time. I can no-damage run it too, but sometimes I make a mistake on stage 4 and one of the flying skewers hits me! I look forward to playing JuJu Densetsu, I love games with an emphasis on learning enemy placement and how to deal with each situation. I think Dynamite Batman is a game which emphasizes this style well, but it's actually A LOT more forgiving than some people realize.

Ah, do tell, how far have you gotten on Gun Dec? I've beaten that game a few times since I got it and I absolutely adore it... the final boss seems near-impossible at first, but there is a trick to fighting him.

Edit: Not Famicom, but Power Blade on my NES is the last game I played!
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: L___E___T on July 18, 2013, 04:37:57 pm
I got up to the secnd boss, died and then powered off.  Not really trying, just had a quick blast through while I was waiting for something and died before I knew it.  Boss 1 is such a walk n the park that I didn'mt see how quickly my life bar went down.  I didn't get hit even up til then :)

So not very far yet, but it seems relatively easy so far.  I'll let you now when I have a proper sit down with it.  I tend to play Famicom games for 5 mins and then move on to another game, it's bit of a bad habit.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: Nightstar699 on July 18, 2013, 04:48:07 pm
Ahh, I hope you spend more time on it in the near future, I'd love to hear your experiences with the later stages.

I'd consider Gun Dec to be somewhat similar to Ninja Gaiden in a couple ways... the most prominent of which is the fact that the game is extremely easy... up until the final stage, which is actually pretty damn hard. I remember before I played Ninja Gaiden, I had heard the difficulty of it hyped up to such great extreme, so when I got a copy of it I was surprised to just easily breeze past level after level, until the difficulty really hit me on the final stage... then I seriously had to take some time and learn the game inside and out. Gun-Dec is kinda the same way, but... I'd still say it's easier than Ninja Gaiden overall.
Title: Re: Last Famicom game you played?
Post by: P on July 18, 2013, 11:40:49 pm
Your knack for action games is probably what made Ninja Gaiden easy Nightstar. First time I played it long ago I had trouble long before the last stage. But the difficulty really increases greatly on the last stage.

Mother 1. I beat Mother 2 & 3 already. This is by far one of my favorite game series. I highly urge anyone whom has not played Mother 2 (EarthBound in USA) on Super Famicom to do so immediately!

I'm at the very beginning so far but it feels a lot like Mother 2 but kind of like a rough prototype with a different setting & story. Some objects in Mother 1 were used in 2.

I'm taking it slow and trying to savor every last fresh moment of the game as this will be the last of new games of the series for me. (Shigesato Itoi said he will not be making anymore)

Don Doko Don 1 or 2? I have them both but I just couldn't get into the original, but DDD2 is one of my favorites. If you played the second installment, how far did you get in it? Your character's walk speed is rather slow but the level design is glorious, especially later on.

City Connection on a pirate cart. Pretty interesting game, but the only problem is that sometimes you can't dodge the cats, so you are forced to hit them and lose a life. Level 3 looks really glitchy, instead of background there is some glitchy sprite madness, just like on some level of TwinBee, where some objects and background look glitchy.

City Connection on a pirate cart. Pretty interesting game, but the only problem is that sometimes you can't dodge the cats, so you are forced to hit them and lose a life. Level 3 looks really glitchy, instead of background there is some glitchy sprite madness, just like on some level of TwinBee, where some objects and background look glitchy.

That's because the bootleggers cut some of the graphics from the game. As a result, the cutscenes between levels are glitched and some of the backgrounds are missing. :(

Ninja Ryukenden 2 - No continues used, had 9 lives when I finished it.
Ninja Ryukenden - Sadly, I had to use a continue to beat this game in my last playthrough of it. I forgot how lenient NG2 and 3 were when it came to 1-ups, they seem extremely hard to get in the original.

Nice. I like Gorby, too. That's a fun little puzzle game.

I just had my first taste of Bio Senshi Dan. I can already see why this is a popular NES repro. This is a pretty cool game, but I'm not quite sure I'm going to be able to play this with all the Japanese text.

I want to play Mother 1, 2 and 3 - which one should I start with?

Definitely start with Mother 1 or 2. If you are not used to older RPGs (more exp grinding and less dialogue) I recommend to start with Mother 2. But if you are ok with that, there's no reason not to play them in order. I like Mother 1 and 2 about equally much, and Mother 3 is not far below.

I need to play my Earthbound Zero someday soon, and then my girlfriend's Earthbound SNES cart after that.

Tonight, I played Ganbare Goemon! Karakuri Douchuu for the first time, followed by Arkanoid II (with a real FC Vaus controller for the first time). Thanks, hashiriya1.

I think it's a great game, but let me ask, have you managed to defeat the 5th boss, Gremlin? I've fought it over 50 times in the past two days, and I just absolutely can't do it. Their shots move waaaay faster than I can move.

Just cleared one loop of Daiku No Gen-San 2, going to clear the more difficult second loop now. Needed something to raise my self-esteem after being demolished by New Ghostbusters 2.

I enjoy New Ghostbusters II, but I haven't played too far into the game. (I have the PAL NES version; I don't know if there's any differences with the Famicom version.)

I last played Rocman X, though that was a couple of days ago. I wanted this one for a while. Ahhhh, yeah. Sachen ripping off Mega Man!

I so very much look forward to hearing when you've got the job done... Mitsume Ga Tooru has to have my favorite ending ever in a video game.

Kage was the last one I played.

Great game. I was playing Castlevania earlier on my NES. I go back and forth choosing which one is my favorite: simpler and cool, or more complex and awesome.  :gamer:

Firstly welcome  :bub:

I love the look of Akumajou Densetsu, but I do believe Akumajou Dracula is the better game, it's purer and more polished at the same time,  simpler visuals, but I think there's more going on gameplay wise.

Akumajou Densetsu. The soundtrack is sooooo much better than the US CastleVania III.

As to whether I like the first or third CV game better, that's really a toss-up. The first one is much more original, but the third one added so much to the formula.
