Oh, snap. Didn’t even notice it’s the other Shantae. I actually wanted that. You are so right. Thank you. The key might have languished, unclaimed, longing for a backlog to join.
That made the bottom tier an absolute slaaaaam dunk.
Mad Max almost deterred me, actually, since they led with an “M” rated game, and I’ll only play those in rare exceptions.
Glad I stuck around though as there were no repeats for me this month. I probably wouldn’t have bought most of these, but Galak-Z was on my radar and I tend to buy Zachtronics games without really playing them and this will continue the trend. Plus I now have most of the Oddword releases to not play.
Sure there’s a way to get this information, the March/April 1990 edition of Nintendo Power.
If the game seems janky it’s because it is a pretty darn faithful remake of an ambitious, mysterious and generally frustrating Nintendo game, A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobonia. There were only A & B and select and start buttons back then, so the controls sort of had to make due instead of assigning to a different button. Hence the holding down to throw, I think. It was developed originally by David Crane, of Pitfall fame.
