I've had this cart for the NES forever but never played it. Roboio has long and memorably advocated for a re-boot of the game.

This weekend I started playing it through the Switch's online library offering (albeit with save states -- also BTW available on the NES classic), and I totally get it, and as a result totally get Robio a bit more as well. As I was playing it I had a vitrual high-five with him as I went thought it.

have you played this game?

The impression I had of it after an hours of play was that it was much like the original Doom. It's that good. But structually, also very similar. Level by level you solve platform slues, defeating variosu enemies, resulting in an aend boss. Yeah okay, that describes a lot of g

@travo: This “Roboio” sounds like a very fine fellow with great taste in games. I too have played this game and your description is not only unique but spot on.

I dunno if Roobios has really sold me on a reboot, but I sure do wish I had a copy of the original I could flog on eBay.

....I hate all of you. I swear to God, i have had hemorrhoids that cause me less pain than you people. Big nasty ones that rip open every time you have a bowel movement, and take forever to heal and almost get you to the point where you consider a liquid diet for a month and a half.

But yeah StarTropics. That's a hell of a game. StarTropics 3 at E3 this year? Anyone else with me?

@Robio_basic: Of course I’m with you. I’m with you always, just like a hemorrhoid.

My hemorrhoids haven't been cancelled.

On related subject, as much as I loved the original StarTropics, I've never touched the sequel. Anyone play it?

@Robio_basic: I have the sequel on the Wii/Wii U via the Virtual Console. I think I tried it out very briefly quite awhile ago but really need to play more of it to form any kind of opinion on it.

@travo: I don;t know what these others are talking about, they are completely missing your point, which I think is very valid (about how much it is like Doom).

I thikn we should petition Bethesda to make a re-boot of StarTropics. Nintendon't isn't doing anything with the license.

What's that Robio_basic fellow getting all worked up over? If he doesn't like Startropics he should just not post in the topic and defaul the memory of Roboio...

And on the topic of dormant IP: get on a new F-zero Nintendo! That's what people really want.

^A lot of people like Robio hate old games because they are old, which is sad.

I thin kF-Zero should be re-booted, and you know what the F stands for!
