#74: 80’s Overdrive (PC)

It’s a racing game in the style of the oldschool, outrun, looking games ^^ Win races, earn money and upgrade your car, simple stuff, really easy…until you get to the final race! A one on one against a car that is faster than your car so you can’t just drive clean and win…you have to boost past and block the cheater from passing you ^^ Oh and you only have 2 boosts so you use one to pass him and then you have one left in case you fuck up and let him overtake. The game got a real boost in difficulty right at the end 🐊

#75: Wonderboy: Dragon’s Trap (PC)

This is nostalgic for me me and my brother had this for the Master System back in the day ^^

Here we have a remake with real nice artwork that stays faithful to the original sprites and music that, while beautiful, can get a bit too…much. I just like the simplicity of the old music ^^

The great thing is that you can, with the press of a button, change between original sprites and the new, hand painted sweetness AND the same goes for the music so you can have the new art with the old soundtrack or vice versa 👍

If I remember correctly the gameplay is the same as the original, with the added challenge of the area called “The unknown”. I have not played through that stuff but it feels like a challenge-thingie and I don’t have time for that, I need to play more games 🦆

#76: Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA)

I’ve played this before (duh) and it’s one of the best games for the GBA and one of the best remakes of all time! The only part I do not like is the mother brain fight. You feel like a pinball getting pushed around by small canons, doughnut canons and mother brains hadouken…oh and the floor is lava…and I was swimming in it for most of the fight 🐟 Still a great game 👌

Now I need to figure out what to play this weekend…Ufouria for the NES? Metroid Fusion? Sonic 3? Do I play it safe and run through Turtles fall of the foot clan for Gameboy and maybe Bust-a-move 2? I know I’ll lose a weekend to Halloween because I’ll probably drink a couple of stiff drinks with people from work so I’ll probably have to play this safe for a bit…
