Yeah the whole lot there cost me $5-10 each, in 2018 when everyone is whining about resellers etc. I bought every one off a reseller lol.
Mini Reviews of some so far:
Heavy Barrel - really great overhead run and gun action adventure.
Friday the 13th - cheap feeling but quite good adventure game. I think I’ll need a walkthough, but I always loved the movies so this feels like a treat
Monster Party - very weird but solid platformer
Where’s Waldo - surprisingly playable, plays as you’d expect for a game based on a picture book. But the presentation is very solid.
Breakthru - solid action vehicle game. Kind of like a whole game of the turtles skateboard stages? Or a forced left-right scrolling Jackal.
Rambo - repeating Friday the 13th review - cheap feeling but quite good action adventure game. I think I’ll need a walkthough.
Gilligan’s Island - again, another cheap but seemingly solid action adventure. You play as the Skipper, and Gilligan follows you around saying stupid things. It’s like, way better than it has a right to be, though the actual action is pretty iffy.
Rollergames - one of my favourite NES games, already finished it on my silver box Konami PAL version but grabbed NTSC Ultra edition for the loose set. Simply superb honestly
Dirty Harry - again, another action adventure. Even cheaper looking and sounding than the others, but still kinda okay.
Temple of Doom - pretty clunky, but man just hearing that Temple of Doom theme on the Famicom sound chip… better than I expected so far, it was apparently an arcade game originally.
Fabio - I’d never played much W&W, feels very much like a typical Rare NES game, floaty jumps, scabby hit detection.
Batman - obviously superb. Minor changes from the Famicom version which I’ve used for many years.
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes - genuinely good adventure platformer. Great graphics and music too.
Mad Max - It has two types of gameplay, car combat (which is kind of like Jackal mised with RC Pro Am) which is great looking and really solid. And indoor areas, which are really scabby. But again, it’s an adventure game.
It’s just crazy to me how many of these are non-linear with adventure elements. Even though many have some jank, the designs at least have some depth.
