Looking Back: Beetlejuice (NES) | Metal Arcade

Metal Arcade: Stan Stepanic writes:

Beetlejuice is one of the more interesting platformers for the NES, and one that's usually overlooked because of the LJN tag and the weird license behind it.

LJN was a hideous beast in the NES era, generally known for releasing, shall we say, less desirable titles. The kind of stuff best reserved for rentals so you didn't regret paying full price later. But some of their oddities, like Friday the 13th, are actually interesting when you understand the mechanics. But let's face it - LJN had a reputation. Their penchant for suck is easily found in games like the notorious The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends, which easily proves how they often ruined the potential of a decent license. Though I have a soft spot in my heart for some of their games, most are trashy when looked at objectively. But I have a thing for trash. There's something entertaining to me about B-movie level video games. Enter, Beetlejuice. (LJN, Retro) -
