That sounds about right. I tend to think of Demon's Crest as a cross between Castlevania and Mega Man.

I honestly struggle to name a notable game for SNES that isn't $10 and up.

Gradius III wasn't last time I checked, although I think prices went up after Together Retro. With that said, I did purchase this game for $10. I'm not too sad about it, although for its obscurity, I would have thought it'd be a bit cheaper.

That's exactly what I meant. People in this thread said they picked it up for something like 6 bucks, but $10 is the lowest on eBay.

No, it's not that I'm cheap. Just check out the eBay listings...

http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Skyblazer-Super ... ames_Games

There's a BIN for $9.99 plus shipping, but no pic of the cart. The description just says, "Guaranteed to work," but doesn't say anything about the condition of the cart. Then there's a BIN for $11 plus shipping, but as you can see from the pic, the cart is dirty with stickers. I think the cheapest one up there that has a pic of the actual cart is a BIN for $16 shipped. But for a supposedly obscure game that I was expecting to pick up for sub $10, $16 sounds like a lot!

You can best offer the $11 guy.

It wouldn't be worth it. He's charging $5.20 for Parcel Post shipping. A Priority Mail small flat rate box is less than that! Plus, I see he already declined an offer. Assuming the offer declined was reasonable, I doubt he's willing to take much less than $11. So let's say I offered him $9 and he accepted, it'd be $14.20 shipped AND I'd have to spend the time cleaning the cart up. Might as well buy the one for $16 shipped.

And if that's the case, I definitely wanna try this game out because I like Hook. Only thing, I'm guessing this game has no save or password feature? Hook didn't.


There is a password system. From what I recall it's a grid kinda like the Mega Man games.

Some people have commented on the fact that the symbols used in the passwords look a lot like those that would later be found on the PlayStation controller (scroll to the bottom of the page).

Oh yeah, I've seen/heard of that before.

I used to have it. I still have the box. It's on my list to get again. Awesome game. Why did I sell it? I was a stupid and poor teenager of course.
