Wow! A new year, a new decade, new games to beat! Or should I say old games to beat? Last year's tally was remarkable. NES and Gameboy were tied at 15 new games beat during 2019! Incredible. Sega Genesis was the true standout though. During the summer I had just acquired a bunch of games and made a special effort to finish them.
Not only that but my retro game of the year belongs to the mighty Genesis. Without further ado, I present to you...
THE RETRO GAME OF THE YEAR!
Yup it's Sonic and Knuckles! Although you could put Sonic 3 in here as well (they are meant to be played together). So I beat Sonic 3 with all the chaos emeralds and got all the super emeralds for Sonic and Knuckles as well! Great games and a fitting end to the series on the Genesis.
Ugh, well I finally beat it. With my last credit I finished off Princess Noiram (who was a total pushover, just stand right in her face and mash the kick button). Incredibly poor hit detection and music that is good, but WAY TO LOUD! This one could have been awesome if Technos Japan (or even America) had developed this one. Flying Edge Studios, stick to your awesome wrestling games.
You wouldn't think a bowling game on the NES could be fun. But actually, you'd be wrong! This game has tremendous character and heart. It's also incredibly easy to play and a lot of fun!
So it say its a Jaleco game, but this is a NATSUME game all the way! Love, love, love it! Excellent graphics and music. With just the right touch of difficulty too. Need to find a physical copy of this sucker!
