You may be familiar with Mario and Sonic, but what about Bonk, Monty Mole and Tom-Tom?
Gotta love Rick Dangerous and Jet Set Willy. Unless you got caught jumping into the screen in the wrong place and got hit by that Flamingo head that should have been a foot but for copyright. Am I rambling or just writing a stream of consciousness? Ooh shiny things.....
there's a very good reason as to why I've forgotten most of these characters. Bonk especially sucked.
Being a young kid back in 1990, I thought Bonk was awesome. Sadly, when I revisited the game, I started to realize how boring the game was. I suppose you're right.
.... to know the name of the name that I loved so much as a kid: Magical Flying Hat Turbo Adventure!!! Awesome awesome game. I used to play it on my neighbour's Megadrive, who had bought the game in Hong Kong. It didnt come with an english title on the front or in the menu (I think), so I never knew the name. Definately one of the most fun 16-bit platformers of all time!
Why did Monty die so fast Aren't three lives enough to last The hazards that confront a mole In his search for precious coal Don't let Monty die in vain Press a key and try again How's that for memory. "Wanted Monty mole." Used to play it with my dad back in 84
...where is Superfrog in that list!? That was an awesome game for the Amiga. A LOT of fun! Also, the guy from Flashback.
Wheres Dynamite Headdy?! He was awesome I would still be playing it if I could find my Sega Megadrive because I've never completed it.
They also forgot Busby Earthworm Jim that also made gaming fun specially battle toads
EARTH WORM JIM was so awsome.. but died so fast.. it was pretty awsome and awsome looking for its time.. now when i go back to it its MEH.. fun gameplay though.. also technically PIT from that game on the NES is a forgotten hero.. sure he made an apperience on SMASH BROS but hasn't had his own game in EVER.. also what about MELLO and GENO? (you had to have played SUPER MARIO RPG to appreciate these 2 characters) though GENO was so much better.. however MELLO had awsome magic once you leveled him up.. Geno was strong from the start.. it was awsome.. and what happened to BATTLE TOADS? especially when they teamed them up with the double dragon team.. there were mamy forgotten heros.. and trust me.. not worth revisiting most.. they don't age too well
ZOMG ALEX KIDD!!! I loved that game, I still play it even now of my master system ^_^
