|Started playing the NES hack remake of the X1 version of this game. I tried the NEC PC 8801 version, but it was unplayable due to emulator issues.|
This game is a bit less hard than Lost Levels, with only one Koopa hopping part... it also has some really weird design decisions. like, a vine that leads to a dead end forcing you to die of timeout, fireballs that jump out of the floor, random pipes in the water that don't do anything, pipes that lead back to an earlier part of the level...
I started getting game-overs at 4-4, just before getting to 300k points... worlds 6-8 had a lot of game overs but still not as bad as LL... I definitely would not want to play the original version of this without the screen scrolling. that would be a nightmare... Also the original version has enemies from Mario Bros. and DK barrels+fireball enemies... not worth it.
