Title Review Filesize
Danny Sullivan
Genre: Racing
-
Rating: 6

I'm a car racing fan. A BIG car racing fan at that, whether it's stock cars, indy cars, touring cars, or even monster trucks going at it (won't go anywhere near dragsters or any of that nonsense, personally), I like it. Nowadays, racing fans just like you and I can fill our racing desires with games like NASCAR Racing 4 or Gran Turismo 3. However, back in the NES days, we had to settle for either cheap-looking ''3D'' racing junk (Rad Racer), or racing from a top-down view (Micro Machines). None of them were particularly spectacular in my opinion, though I haven't played them all, but I do remember a select few that I thoroughly enjoyed very, very much: Excitebike, Off-Road, and Indy Heat.

Indy Heat definitely ranks in my top ten, or maybe even top five favorite NES games of all-time. I remember playing this game all the time when I was a kid. Nowadays, though I have a wonderful working NES, I don't have many games to play. Imagine the joy I felt when I saw Indy Heat for 4 dollars at a used game store (despite the fact its condition was terrible, as is the case with most used NES games nowadays, sadly enough).

Darkman for NES front cover
Genre: Platformer
1991 Ocean
Rating: 8

History behind the game - Darkman was originally released as a 1990 film starring a man who wants revenge on a group of thugs who beat him so badly, that he had to hide his face. The film was a mediocre attempt and was generally liked by the public.

The plot to the game - Dr Peyton Westlake was a brilliant Scientist who was working on a new synthetic skin idea for burns sufferers. Taking old photographs of the victims of the burns, he was able to recreate their faces without the use of a computer!

Unfortunately the skin was photosensitive and could not last over ninety-nine minutes in light. An evil gang led by their leader ‘Durant’, broke into the lab looking for an important document. They killed peytons assistant, and attempting to leave no witness they blew up the lab with Peyton inside it…but he survived!!!

Darkwing Duck for NES front cover
Genre: Platformer
1992 Capcom
Rating: 10

For people who don't know, this game was made after the Disney cartoon show Darkwing Duck that aired in the early 90's. It was a great show, so you'd think that it would have a great game too. Let's see how good it is.

In this game Darkwing Duck (D.W.) is called by J. Gander Hooter to stop the organization F.O.W.L and it's agents from a crime spree in St. Canard. It's not that ''Great'' of a plot, but it works for this game pretty nicely.

In this game you can get three different Special Gasses for your Gas Gun, The Thunder, Arrow, and Heavy Gas. Each one does something different. Your cape can be use to block some enemy's shots. You can also go to BONUS AREAS to obtain items. So everything is prety solid. The one thing I didn't like was that this game is alittle too much like Mega Man, but it's still great.

Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum for NES front cover
Genre: Arcade
1989 Beam Software
Rating: 4

I laughed when I first saw the box art to this game. Hopefully most of you know of Flash Gordon, the old pulp sc-fi hero who fought Ming the Merciless and the subject of a 1980 movie. This movie is, objectively, rather poor, but is still incredibly fun to watch. You can't help but smile at the horrid lines (''What do you mean, 'Flash Gordon approaching?'''), the hammed up acting, the blatant 1950s look, the brilliant cheesy yet heart pounding theme song, and the goofy plot. Well, it's obvious to anyone that this game is a cheap ripoff of Flash, from the similar names to the old rocket to the fact that both wear red with a lightning bolt logo. But whereas the Flash movie was bad but fun, this game unfortunately only copied the former element.

Day Dreamin
Genre: RPG
1990 HAL
Rating: 8

In this fun-filled game, you play as Davey, a Kid who's daydreaming sometimes causes him to confuse what really is reality. This causes him to get in all types of trouble. Of course you play as him inside of his daydreams in certain different settings, such as: in medieval times, in the wild wild west, etc. Well with no further ado, on with the review. The cut-scenes move like a slide-show, but are pretty well drawn. Sometimes bad guys and such just look like little blobs which can be annoying.
Otherwise, not any real complaints.
For the Nintendo, the graphics are pretty darn good.

Days of Thunder for NES front cover
Genre: Racing
1990 Mindscape
Rating: 10

Days of Thunder, based on the 1990 movie Days of Thunder, starring Tom Cruise, is probably one of the oldest racing games I know of. It's also one of the toughest.
Compared to today, these graphics are not good. Not good at all... However, when you consider the limitations the NES has, the graphics are surprisingly good. Everything's good, but I do have one thing to say: Since when did Russ Wheeler drive a purple car? And since when did Exxon's colors become red and yellow? There're a lot of miscues there... Like a red Atlanta track, and a blue Dover. At least they got the track maps right, for the most part... They messed up with Daytona and Talladega, though, there is not a little straight for the finish line. And again, since when did Russ Wheeler drive a purple car?! By the way, if you win, you get a shot of Cole standing on the podium, looking pretty pleased, with Rowdy and Russ on the second and third place stand: oddly enough, Rowdy is in a red firesuit, Russ in a purple. ..Logic here is what?

Deadly Towers for NES front cover
Genre: Platformer
1986 Irem Corp
Rating: 4

Deadly Towers, Hydlide, Heroes of the Lance. What comes to your mind when I read you these three names. The trinity of the worst NES games? Or, so people are lead to believe. I went on an epic adventure to Funcoland a few days ago, where I picked up all three. After a few hours with Deadly towers, I am lead to believe differently. Deadly Towers isn’t one of the worst games for the NES; just hard as hell. The difficulty factor in Deadly Towers may have one smashing their face into the TV about 2 hours into it. But, why would a well respected company, Broderbund, release such garbage? The world may never know…..

You start Deadly towers standing there in a nasty, green outfit. This is Prince Meyer, the main character that is extremely shallow. The first reaction with any game is to mess with the controls. Pressing buttons to get the hang of things off the bat. But, something might strike you as odd when you do this little task. Swords fly from his crotch. This guy is a magician I tell you, he can fire swords 8 ways out of his private area. Now that we are affiliated with what kind of freaky hero we’re dealing with, we can talk more about the game.

Death Race for NES front cover
Genre: Shooter
1986 Irem Corp
Rating: 7

Oh the gods, how I praise thee!!!!! I was searching for this game for some time and finally received it on a trade. It is truly everything I hoped it would be. Those of you searching for this game, read my review of its true deathness before purchasing, because this is one opinion. However, I assure you, you will not be disappointed! If you love the unlicensed hilarity of some NES games, get this immediately! If you love the classic titles, this will be added to your list!!!!!

Gameplay on this game is rather simple to get used to, though it may be a little akward at first when you slap this puppy in the toaster shooter! It is really not that hard, though. Up makes your car go forwards in whatever direction you are facing, down is the brake at all times, and right/left changes the direction you are going. Of course, if holding in up while pressing right or left, you will make turns while moving, don't think that you must stop every time before changing to the direction you want to go. Before this, though, you are faced with the opening screen and then eventually a screen where you get to upgrade, repair, and alter your car.

Deathbots for NES front cover
Genre: Shooter
1986 Irem Corp
Rating: 7

Deathbots is a lot like a stray dog. For one thing, it lacks a license. Secondly, its black, funny-shaped outer casing makes it a social pariah in a crowd of nice, clean, uniformly manufactured NES cartridges, much as a mutt with three legs, cataracts, and mange would feel out of place at the Westminster Dog Show. But most like a mongrel, Deathbots will come to your front doorstep on a day when you are expecting no company. It will beg for mercy, love, and pity, and because it has that glimmer of uniqueness in its eye you'll give it a chance - ''just this once,'' you swear to yourself. Once soon turns into twice, thrice, four times, ten, twenty, fifty! until at last it is a permanent fixture in your life. If you can get past the negative stigma placed on unlicensed games, you may be able to get some lasting value out of Deathbots as long as you can maintain an open heart. It's not bloody likely, but it is possible.

Defender of the Crown for NES front cover
Genre: Adventures
1989 Konami
Rating: 6

Originally released on a variety of computer platforms, Defender of the Crown (DotC) was successfully ported to the NES console as a part of Konami's Ultra series. Thank goodness, because it is one of the most unique and enjoyable games ever released for the NES. Although it isn't the greatest hybrid game ever made (that honor goes to Sid Meier's Pirates!), it is truly outstanding in almost every respect. You must play the role of a Saxon lord in medieval England. Your goal: To fend off rival Saxons and defeat the Norman lords, thus uniting England under one ruler. Meanwhile, the crown itself is missing! Fortunately, the legendary Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest is available to help you (3 times) in your task of uniting the realm and recovering the crown.
