    How hard was this game?

    Another review of an old school game, and another decision of whether to review it by today's standards, or the standards of the time. Well, if we take the former approach.... It's rubbish. The graphics are lame,... Read Full Review

    This is one of the most popular platformers for the NES

    A hot babe and decent shoot em' up lightgun levels are hardly enough to shore up this fault-filled game.
