Re: What are you playing?

I started Kid Icarus on the Nintendo Entertainment System this afternoon.

Oh Boy, I forgot how hard Kid Icarus is. I got to Stage 1-3 and just hit a wall. That level went on forever and there are so many enemies and you have such a weak shot. After a while, I reset the game and did some grinding on Stage 1-2 to get 2 Endurance Levels, so hopefully that will make things easier. I probably just need to take my time and go more slowly through the game.

The enemy design is really unique and I like the vertical scrolling levels. It also is a very different concept with it being set in Ancient Greece in a way. The music is also catchy and it still is fun to play.

I just forgot how hard it is...

Cool game. The difficulty peaks early, and if you can make it through the first level, you’re golden.

That game never clicked with me. I even got the FDS original to see if it was more palatable. I would like to finish it, someday.

It's like Metroid... all gone wrong.

1-3 is probably one of the hardest levels in my eyes. It’s early enough that you haven’t powered up yet, and the vertical scrolling is pretty hazardous. World 2 is much easier overall.

I would fully agree with you.

If you don't do any grinding for health in 1-2, 1-3 can give you a swift kick. The level goes on forever and they ramp up the amount of enemies.

Once you are able to beat your first boss, the game gets so much easier.

I Started Mark of the Ninja Remastered on Switch last night.

THAT is a Ninja game.

Amen to that. There are plenty of games featuring ninjas, but very few of them make you feel like a ninja. That is where Mark of the Ninja excels and using that as a primary measure, it might even be my favorite ninja game.

Some of the puzzles near the end are infuriating but I've enjoyed it.

I wish Tenchu would come back.
