Bucky O'Hare (NES)
Those coloured dots may appear at first glance to be stars in the distance, but that giant frog shaped spaceship actually seems to be flying behind them.
Shockingly for a NES game, it turns out that this is another platformer. I can't jump on enemies, but I can shoot them so that's okay. No double jump, but I do have a charged jump that apparently makes me jump... exactly as high as the regular jump. Which is less than useful.
Crap, they're exploding spiders. Not the worst kind of spider, but pretty bad.
Okay forget the green planet for now, I'll go check out the red planet instead.
These levels actually have a decent amount of variety to them. Like now I'm pushing boulders into the lava to give myself a platform to jump on.
I can't figure out how to outrun this lava, every time I just end up dying in the exact same spot. I'll leave it for now and go try the blue planet instead.
Well. Next planet then.
It's a pain in the ass.
Now what though? I'm stuck on a small moon with nowhere obvious to go. Unless I'm supposed to jump on the asteroids that hurt me on the last stage.
Uh, I give up. It's not a terrible game, but I'm all out of curiosity.
