This one is from the end of 2018 and part of 2019
I finally beat Boogerman on Sega. Good mid 90s game. Great animation. Good level design. I usually didn't make it to the 1st boss as I usually tried to cellect everything and got iced. Good music and 90s style humor and feel. Its not so hard and regular passwords and infinite continues. If you bite it on the last level you gotta start the whole thing over from act 1 like Ninja Gaiden. The bosses take around 12-16 hits, making em tougher than Robotnik . The power ups are good but go after 1 hit like Mario. He goes down toilets like with Mario and pipes and there's a lot of snot and ooze and spit and phlegm and blasting gas out both ends. I liked it. It controls well and has good voices for a Genesis game.
I beat Digimon Battle Spirit on GBA. Good game. Has monsters from the 1st 3 series with unlockables. Catching Calimon gets you to Digivolve. Sukamon is surprisingly good with his dash. Wormmon is pretty good too. Impmon is overpowered but ant Digivolve. I kinda liked using Agumon and Veemon but Wormmon was cool. Some mega forms ain't so great and are harder to hit the foe with. Millenniummon is a good final boss that's tough but fair. Gabumon kinda s-cked. I liked the game and unlocked everyone in a day. Good cheap quick game.
I beat World Championship Soccer II on Sega Genesis. Good game. I'm not into sports and its my kid brother who got it but its got good graphics and sound. The ball physics are good. Its got images from real soccer games for Yellow Cards and was by Sega Sports. I got memories of playing it in the 90s and its still pretty good. I played it on easy as I'm not into soccer much and haven't played it in years. I played with America and on Challenge Game and worked my way up to beating Germany and Brazil. It was hard to get the ball as you don't choose which players you control and it keeps switching. Also it got pretty tough in the later games. Usually I got 1 guy on the outside and ran to get it in the net at an angle. I hit the side of the net 5x in a row against the 2nd or 3rd last guys. I normally outran the other guys but they got faster and were able to outrun me in the 2nd last and last games. Eventually I had to pass the ball to the next guy to get it to the net. Often I had to go into Extra Innings. Each game was 3 mins but I had replays, penalties and writing down passwords in case it froze again. The cartridge still has that New Sega Smell. Glad I finally got to playing it.
I finally beat Parodius on my NES collection. I used the Vic Viper the whole game as that's what I'm used to. The challenge was tough but fair. The bosses were tricky at times but a few I beat on my 1st try. I had to stay in the safe zone above him and use the missile to beat the pufferfish boss. The final level wasn't too bad and with the 4 penguins firing off guys I accidentally found a safe zone between the 2 streams where they passovered me. Good game and I'm glad i tried it.
After hours of playing I finally beat Golden Axe on the Sega Master System collection I got. Good game. It can be beat in 20 mins but yoyu only get 1 continue. The magic is like the arcade but you play as the speedo guy.it slows down often and some guys take lotsa hits. The worst are the skeletons as they are fast. Eventually I made it to the final boss on one continue and beat him. Great Conan style 80s game.
I beat Spider-Man and the X-Men: Arcade's Revenge on Gameboy. Despite being by LJN its actually not too bad. After game overing on my 1st attempt as Spider-Man I played it through to the end in under 2 hours. The X Men levels weren't so bad but Gambit was tricky as you could run outta ammo. Couldn't Gambit just use his powers on the wall and blow it that way? Why waste cards?? Once I got used to the controls it wasn't too bad. Being able to get 2 Lives on Gambits level was needed as I could just do that and bite it and repeat to get more guys. The game boss wasn't too bad. Plus not having a 2nd go for each hero was welcome as I didn't have to endure the Juggernaut or that elevator level in Gambit. No crusher ball for Gambit in this game either. Glad I finally got around to beating it.
I beat Virtua Fighter 2 on Genesis. Not too bad. But after a few rounds the foes get really annoying. They can cream you in a few seconds. It started out easy with beating the guy by pressing down and kick til they went but eventually they seemed to learn my moves. Didn't help that I didn't know any moves from the start. Eventually I learned forward + forward + B B B C s the highest damaging thing. I used Pai as she's my blood type but she kinda s-cked. Kage was one of the 1st to give me issue but the guy before him was tricky. After that I got game over after game over on every round besides the final boss who was in some really low speed area. Wolf has that spin throw that can take me out of the ring in 1 shot that he only did once. Jacky was awful. Jeffry was a heavy hitter and Akira was fat and hit like a hammer.. Eventually I beat it after over an hour of playing and I'm glad I finally beat it. Good 90s music too.
kirby is a bag of aids and human waste. i played kirby's pinball for over an hour and hated it. you cant make him go where you want to. its too easy to get knocked back down the hole to the previous level and have to claw ur way back up. if you fall through the bottom you get a chop at rebounding but it gets less likely each time. to beat a level you gotta get to the top, clear a puzzle and beat a boss. but if you leave that screen even for a moment, it resets and you gotta do it all over again. and there's plenty of sh-t in your way to f--k it up. plus you get limited tries to clear 3 tables and a final boss one. its like that guy in greek lore who rolls a rock up a hill each day and it rolls right back down again. this game is like being in h-ll! f--k you kirby! ur game is a55!!
I just spent 8 hours on the last few levels of lemmings on sega genesis. 7 of em were on the 2nd last level. i know what to do but its easy to screw it up. if ur 1 pixel off its ruined. eventually i got through and beat the last one in like 3 tries. great game. i played xmas lemmings as a kid on my moms 80s computer in the 90s and this game was grand. the music was good and having a pause button instead of hitting the paws icobn was easier. hard game but worthy. glad i played it.
So I beat Breath Of Fire on GBA. Good game. Good controls. Good graphics. Good music. I had a good time playing it. The auto battle was nice and the characters were cool. Fusing them was pretty great I ran out of AP boosting items and had to leave and reenter the last dungeon to face the game boss. I got the good ending and used a walkthrough to get the stuff i missed and make sure i made the right choices. The story was good but kinda lacking after I played Lunar on GBA which had better dialogue and character interactions. Other than tha, great game. Glad I played it.
i beat Mickey Mouse: Magic Wands! on Gameboy, Decent game. You gotta get all the pieces of the pictures to beat the level. Unlike the previous game Garfield Labyrinth you don't gotta get to the exit and the level ends when you get the last piece. There's 40 levels and 4 boss fights tghat i didn't have much trouble with. The only reason I know about this game is seeing a few seconds of it on a 100 Gameboy games in 10 mins video. I got the Japanese version and I didnt really need to know Japanese to get through it. I was able to figure out how to do it Every boss he beats gives him a new ability so you earn more powers gradually. Its a pretty good game.
I beat Growl/Runark on Sega Genesis. Simple game. Good beat em up. Fun cheesy gore. Not really hard. Decent controls. The plot is its the 1900s and poachers are after animals so you as a Park Ranger or w/e gotta kill em all. Turns out, it was an alien controlling em. Its over the top and silly and really entertaining. I got it for 23$ from Venezuela as a repro and it was a good deal. I previously got a copy from the Soviet Union but that was actually Double Dragon in a Growl Box/Sticker for 27$. Glad I finally got around to doing it.
After hours of trying, I finally beat the last 4 levels of Bubsy 1. 13 and 14 were ok but 15 was annoying and 16 was a trial. Eventually I got through the gauntlet and beat the game boss who you beat by jumping into and keeping it up til she or you bite it. Using glide to hit foes to avoid bouncing up is needed and those gun happy woolies are irritating. That being said, I kinda liked it. Its got personality and charm. The gameplay isn't horrible but once you get the hang of it can be good. You don't get a passcode for level 16 so to beat it, you gotta beat 4 levels in a row. The music has charm and the graphics are nice. I'm glad I got and beat it. It was a challenge, but getting passwords every 3 levels and starting with 9 guys balances it.
