Beat Shadow of the Ninja. Repeat, of course. Garuda gave me fits at the end, when he goes hyperdrive. Turns out I was doing it wrong, got it pretty easily the last time.

Anyway, it and Shatterhand are two of my favorites, not only for the gameplay, which both give me a heavy Sunsoft vibe, but for the rockin' music.

Natsume seemed to have a mastery of NES music by the early 90s.

Dat intro.
Although now that title screen looks like it says "Shanow of The Ninja". ShamWOW of the ninja? Made by Natsume, you know they always put out good stuff.

I see what you did there.

Also, even if the games aren't quite as good, Dragon Fighter and Choujin Sentai Jetman have awesome soundtracks.

EDIT: Just finished Shatterhand. I'd forgotten how tricky that end run can be. Thankfully, if you can get far enough in, you get to respawn infinitely at the approach run to the final boss, not having to go through the three other bosses on the way. Awfully nice of them. Still one of those overlooked gems on the system.

5/25: New Super Mario Bros 2 (3DS)
6/18: Super Mario 3D Land (3DS)

Super Mario 3D Land is so absolutely amazing. That a game this good graphically can exist in the palm of my hands is a point of wonder for me. I feel like this is an oddly neglected entry in the Mario series. I think this is for two reasons: 1 - it's on a handheld platform which is always held up as a negative for almost any entry in a mainline Nintendo franchise except for Zelda.

2 - There is this really weird concept that this game is short and easy. It is like no one bothers to play the game again after beating the story mode and they are therefor missing 50% of the game. I probably cleared about 85% of the Special World levels before finally deciding I'd played enough. At World 8-2 with over 260 gold coins, I feel like I've gotten my moneys worth from the game. I might come back to it at some point though, maybe as part of a double feature when I revisit Mario 3D World to finish up the Special Worlds in that game, too.

6/11: Tappingo (3DS DL)
6/15: Galaga Legions DX (PSN)

Total: 17 games

Hm... Galaga Legions DX wasn't bad. It's a simple, fast-paced, twin-stick shooter where you shoot as many enemies as you can before the time runs out. It's really nice to shoot at everything with a lot of explosions and flashy colours, but unfortunately a lot of the enemy pattern repeat a lot. Plus it's a bit on the short side (10 levels w/ plus time trials for each). I didn't mind super much since I only paid $1 for it, but if it was much more I would of been a little disappointed. Playing as Pac-Man with Pac-Man ghosts was kind of cool though!

To be clear, I love all of Natsume's NES games. It was definitely one of the best developers of the era.

Oh, I know you were having fun. :)

I still wonder if they've got some connection to Sunsoft, either through a former developer or something, or just taking those games and reverse-engineering what they did. They really do feel like Sunsoft stuff, especially the way a lot of the physics are handled.
