Games Thrashed: 2017 Edition (PART 2)


Squeaked another title in, and just in time! It's....chess.

It actually didn't take me long to finish this one at all. I'm no chess expert at all put the CPU left itself wide open. I think Battle Chess is a bit better in my opinion. But, its so SLOW. Oh well, off to other games no doubt!

Talk about a true gem of a game. A wonderful platformer from Hudson Soft. A late release that I never played back in the day. A real shame too. Good graphics, nice controls and interesting power up system (I especially like the car upgrade). A bit on the easy side, but hey, sometimes you need a nice relaxing game.


Used to borrow this one from my Uncle Marc waaaaaaaaay back in the day. Almost 25 years ago? Wow. Finally stomped this one out. Not only that, I played it again right after beating it, and finished it again!

This must be the year of Tengen! Took me about 5-6 tries to finally finish this one off. Lots of fun too.


Here's a super nostalgic game for me, Might Bomb Jack! Laid this one to rest, even though I got the bad ending is an ending! Funny thing, after I finished the game I felt like playing it again. And again I beat it! lol. I think I'll go back and try to get the best ending later on. GAME OF THE YEAR CANDIDATE.

Not a bad little fighter! Used Leo and beat it on normal mode. This one was a lot of fun.

What a surprise! Despite the races part, this actually is a platforming game. And a damn good one too!

A great and forgotten game from Nintendo. Technically, the game has no ending. But, I did manage to beat Game Mode A seeing all three stages, and achieving the highest score. So, beat it.

Wanna talk about a good game? Man, Kid Klown is a wonderful treat! A late action platformer that has lots charm. You toss balloons at enemies, you can throw them above you, set them on the ground and use that as a trampoline. You can even blow one up, jump, and float! So much fun!


One game that my friend Mike had growing up. Not a bad little game being a launch title for the NES. But, there are MUCH better football games. I finished the game (well, it seems to go on and on) where you get the cut scene of your score and the opponents (20 - 7 for me btw). I'll chalk that one up as I beat it on SUPER BOWL difficulty.


I had some difficulty with this little game. However, I got into the groove around stage 3 or 4 and found the shield power-up. From there it got much easier as I upgraded to my shadow copies with laser fire. I didn't lose a life until my second loop of the game at Stage 3. I ended up beating the game with well over 1.2 million points, and had 9 lives in reserve! VERY good game!


As far as GameTek games go, this one isn't that bad. It's on the easier side questions wise, but the challenges are pretty cool. The obstacle course can go to hell though! Still, a decent game that was a lot of fun to play. Probably more enjoyable with two players. lol. Beat it on Hard mode too.
