The only game I have sofar is Mike Tyson's Punch-Out (just got my first Famicom 2 days ago). I couldn't get past Soda Popinski on the Nintendo Online version. Got all the way to Super Macho Man on the first try on the Famicom. Attempted Tyson once but my Timing wasn't there after a couple decades of not playing it on a CRT with original hardware.

Probably inspired by the recently fansubbed GCCX episode where Arino plays Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Famicom (actually TMNT II since the numbering went wonky in Japan) I went and played my copy of the game, which I had picked up largely for nostalgia's sake since I had the game back in the 80's. 1CCed the game right away, I'm not sure if I ever did that when I was a kid. But it is a very easy game, most regular enemies are killed with one hit from the A+B combo, and the majority of bosses fall to the same pattern of repeated jumpkicks.

Still pretty fun, tho.

Is the Famicom version different gameplay-wise from the NES? The North American release has a stupid bug/feature where foot soldiers temporarily become invincible after the first hit (there's one kind of weaponed foot soldier who doesn't have this, but I forgot which one it was).

Edit: Okay, this answers my first question: https://tcrf.net/Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtles_II:_The_Arcade_Game#Regional_Differences

Yeah, the temporary invincibility is still there, hence why using the A+B attack almost exclusively is a good thing. But that (and jump kick killing foot soldiers in one hit in the FC version) kind of works for me, as one of my biggest annoyances in beat 'em ups is how sometimes even the smallest enemies can take a ton of punishment. When your badass ninja warrior or 'roided up bodybuilder needs to do a three-hit combo, a roundhouse kick, a spinning lariat, and two izuna drops just to dispatch the most basic of enemies...it really kills the flow for me. So games like this, its sequel, Spartan X, etc. are more to my liking.

Been playing through Double Dragon II on Fami.  Trying to get good at it again.  Controls aged poorly.  :-[
