sorry for posting so much, but if raocow likes adventure island im honestly putting in a request submission for him to try out the monster world subseries:
  • wonder boy in monster land (aka: bikkuriman world (tg16), saiyuki world (nes), mônica: no castelo do dragão (br sms))
  • wonder boy iii: the dragon's trap (also has remake) (aka: dragon's curse (tg16), turma da mônica em: o resgate (br sms))
  • wonder boy in monster world (aka: the dynastic hero (tg16), turma da mônica na terra dos monstros (br md))
  • monster world iv
  • monster boy and the cursed kingdom
it's a series that's dear to me, but i still have to play through all of it :pal:

signal boosting this just in case:
The Game Display wrote:There is an invisible egg near the very end of Level 1 (uncovered by jumping on top of it) that has a Bee item inside. After picking this up, you can hold Right on the title screen and press Start to continue from the level you Game Overed at. Adventure Island 1 is pretty brutal. I found that the difficulty jumps quite a bit after World 4, and then takes a huge jump in World 8, the final world. This may be more stress than you're looking for while you try to recover. I'd definitely recommend Adventure Island 2 or 3 instead which I found to be much more fun. They're still not the easiest games though.
if you do decide to go through adventure island hell, don't forget about the fourth game exclusive to the japanese nes. it has a super old translation patch

dude's been phoning it in for the past several seasons i feel. maybe i've grown old and prefer stuff like bad game hall of fame now

i will maintain that hydlide 3/super hydlide fucks hard and anyone who disagrees is a pussy, be it james or the jrpg compendium person

EDIT: i never took the skateboard because it's nigh uncontrollable and im not gonna question raocow's intent but i honestly believe he shouldn't always go for the skate at the very least

raocow is actually correct about the invincibility in this game, but it's actually even better than that.

The invincibility actually lasts until the fairy completely leaves the screen, which makes it very easy to tell the exact moment it's going to run out. The song stopping is basically just the warning to get ready. It's a very good piece of design, and I believe carries over for all the other Adventure Islands (I'd really love to see 2 get played.)

UNFORTUNATELY, this applies to the "bad fairy" as well, so it does even more collateral damage to Higgins's barely-existant stomach than it appears.

Also, I realized something that was bothering me about Higgins's sideways "?" mouth...

it's basically just the prequel to sigma's undertale mouth in megaman xtreme!!!!

tbf, it's was for the nes marathon, and the nerd segment each year tends to be shorter and of lower production quality, since they're quick bits for intermissions

I find the vast difference in detail between some of the game's sprites really funny. Like look at how detailed the banana pickup is compared to the milk pickup. One has actual shading and anti-aliasing and outlines and all that fun stuff and then milk is just a plain white square with an big "M" plastered on it.

im gonna sound incredibly stupid and insane but no-hammering the beginning of 6-1 looks super fun to me ngl

i wouldn't wish it on anyone though

EDIT: 6-4 also looks super fun but i'm expecting the youtube comments to be like "oh this game is bad because raocow is having problems im a big baby wah wah"

I wondered if there was a hidden egg with a weapon so you could deal with those spiders, (which would not be a satisfying solution in the slightest but would at least mean there was a consistent way to do the stage) but there isn't. You have to either finish 7-3 with a weapon and oneshot this stage or you do that one really obnoxious jump.

This game really could've benefited from levels having different palettes more oft—

[cave of eye strain]

oh.

And in the case of the next level, i feel "same level w/ different palette" would be more insulting than simply "same level" because it would feel like the game was trying to trick you into thinking it was a new experience instead of literally the same one over again.

It was actually raocow himself that said this, during Megaman Xtreme 1.

Though it seems I slightly misremembered and it was in reference to his head

fucked up how i agree with the commenters that this world was Ship but also this one dude saying that "it doesn't respect the player" rubs me the wrong way, i don't like the idea of video games having to automatically bend over backwards for the player (granted im also not against souls having an easy mode)

also lmao @ the concept of savestate checkpoints being "cheating", raocow shut up

i wonder how this compares to smbtll since i beat that without checkpoints
