DAMN Warlord....you have been dusting off some F'N cobwebs in this thread.
F13 on NES...was one of the HARDEST and most annoying games I ever played....next to Ghosts and Goblins!
I had to beat Friday the 13th
on an emulator. Could never get it done as a kid, and we were to poor to afford a fucking game Genie.
AND...it amazes me how as a young kid shit would escape you...but when you look at it later with the awe removed (ie. sad adult with no hope)...did you ever realize that Double Dragon II was nothing more than Double Dragon with the back grounds changed and the guys had little extras added and slightly altered color schemes onto the old ones to make them look slightly different?
I never realized it as a kid...but now when I play it...it's offendingly obvious! lol Because I recall busting my ass to earn the money to buy that game.
Hahaha. That's nothing, dude. The entire Mega Man
series was based on that premise.
One of the most hilarious things is when I was playing Days of Thunder
recently (that's right!), there are basically 2 tracks in the entire game. The Daytona track which is used for every super speedway race, and Bristol, which is used for every short track race. The only thing that changes is race length, and competition levels.
The color schemes don't even really change, lol.
Did you ever play Renegade? I put that one up there with DD...
Naa. I didn't. I remember seeing it in the local video store for rental, but never got around to it. I should find the rom and try it out on my emulator.
And did you ever see the assassination scene and love scene in Golgo 13? The head shot through the scope is something that stills looks good today.
Did you need the light gun for that game? If so I definitely didn't play it. I broke my gun playing Duck Hunt
pretty early on. That game cheated, man. Blasting those ducks at point blank range and they still wouldn't go down. And that fucking mutt would pop up out of the bushes laughing at your ass, at which point one would try vainly but incessantly to obliterate him with a thousand tiny bolts of light from one's gun. To no effect.
I finally threw my gun at the TV, which was a mammoth 1950's style floor TV complete with wood paneling and turn-knobs for channel surfing. The TV was okay, but the gun coughed its life out right there, a gazillion tiny pieces of gray and red plastic chunks bearing witness to the awesome, impotent fury of pre-pubescent indignation.
Rygar was a game that was nowhere near the arcade..but actually IMHO surpassed it as far as being interesting.
I remember Rygar
was another sweet title that sported a similar game engine.
