So I played Wrath of The Black Manta..

by TheSegaSaturnGuy Thu Feb 28, 2013 8:46 am

and I love it! This is a complete hidden gem on the NES in my opinion. Given that the story is really cheesy and you can only choose between one method of attack I still had so much fun. I picked the game up at my local game store for 99 cents which told me it either sucked, or it was just really common so I just bought it on a whim and I am so glad I did. Has anyone else played it and liked it? or hated it?
I am buying all Saturn games, PM me with your offerings and I will let you know if I need the game or not! (Everything must be CIB)

Currently trying to knock off all the sports games, would like to get them <$5 each! Of course if you would like to donate them I will gladly pay the shipping! :)

10 years ago a friend gave me a box of NES games and Wrath of the Black Manta was one of them. She even had the original box and manual, but I never played the game because I looked at the box and assumed it was a bad game.

The box I had was pink, not red, so that sunk my opinion even further. I sold it or gave it away to somebody else, but now that you posted this thread I wish I'd given it a fair shake. Lesson learned: Never judge a game by its cover.

It's an okay game, but it always felt a bit clunky to me. Almost like Rolling Thunder with larger sprites and not as tight controls.

I still remember the day I purchased Batman for the nes. I was at a Wal-Mart and a young kid (maybe 7 or 8 years of age) was shouting at his Mother "Mama! Look that game next to Batman! It says Black-Man! I want to play Black-Man! Ain't no Black-Man in video games, but this game is called Black-Man! Mama! Mama! Can I get Black-Man?" .

As is always the case it was a different game in Japan. Different story and bosses as well as name.
