So, this weekend me and my boyfriend felt like playing through Battletoads for NES. Because, that is what you casually feel like on a Friday night, right? Well, we sure got to work for it.
It is surely an addictive game. The game has some nice variation in what you’re supposed to be doing. You’re almost never doing the same thing which is unique especially for a NES game. The level designs are amazing, it rewards skill without being unfair. It is damn hard, but despite it you always want to play more.
Though some parts are unbelievably hard, like the rat race for example. (We did really just get to that part in the game, stupid rats.) Truth be told, that part is way harder than the famous “Turbo Tunnel” in my opinion.
Some levels that really stood out to me were the “Snake pit”, It had a really creative level design and was really fun to play through.
Also, the game has some really great graphics, with quirky details and badass toads. On top of that, the awesome music is making me bob my head a lot. It sticks in your head for quite a while.
All in all, we were unable to beat the game thanks to the previously mentioned rat. That was a shame, but to be honest, I’m quite happy that we even got to that point. It was almost at the end anyhow, and to be able to beat it we’d have to practice a lot.
As I said, a really great game, but surely not for the feint of heart. I absolutely recommend it if you want a good and challenging NES game to try out.
