GSQ5: The best of the rest, pt. 1

NES Games of 1986-87
The latest book digs deep into quite a few games, but it turns out there were really quite a lot of releases for NES. So, for the other notable titles, the issue is crammed with brief writeups. Rather than post those as individual articles, which would be dumb, I’ve crammed a bunch into single pages. Which is a little messy-looking but not quite as dumb. So, yeah.

  1. Wow, I’ve never heard of some of the more obscure games, like Trojan. Perhaps the NES is more awesome than I thought.

  2. What a nostalgia trip. I remember getting Deadly Towers in some huge NES box set (had all of the sports games, Mario games, Blaster Master, etc), and man, was it horrible. I’ve tried going back and playing it, but it was just so clunky and difficult.

  3. I liked the original Adventure Island a lot more before finding out it was a reskinned Wonder Boy via the Internet, but I still love the other games in the series. I definitely like Master Higgins’ design more than some blonde kid, though, and while I was LttP, the TG-16 graphic of him shaking his fist in anger while fire billows in the background is one of my favorite cutscenes ever.

  4. I used to have the arcade version of Kid Niki in my garage. It was one of my favorites, and I’ve been trying to remember what it was called for years. Thanks!
