|I tried out the MSX2 port of this game just to see the differences... it is SO excruciatingly slow. Goemon's max walking speed is almost like the min walking speed on the Famicom one. Your coin shots go slower too, and you don't jump as high, so you can only cover about half the screen when taking out enemies... |
As for the improvements... you get money for killing enemies now, but that's made up for by the fact there doesn't seem to be as many hidden passages with chests, and killing the ladies takes some money away from you.. also the 3D mazes seem to cost a lot more in this one.. and since your walking speed is slower the candle doesn't cover as much ground. there's so many bad things about this I can't even focus on the advantages. this first stage alone is taking me forever to beat. I think I'll probably give up on this version.
