    I'm pretty sure none of these games were big name games and I've gone through lists of NES games looking for names that stick out or are unfamiliar and checking them out but to no avail.


    First game... Looks and plays rather similar to Super Mario with better graphics, but you play as a ?kid?.
    At the end of the (first?) level is a castle and at the bottom of the screen is "VITALITY", your health.
    For some reason I have fantasy Arabic 'things' in my head (think Aladdin) like magic lamps.
    This game probably came out towards the middle of the NES's lifespan.

    Mystery Quest

    Second game... You're a ?detective? in a ?museum? and have to go around collecting items and clues.
    I believe at one point you fall down into the ?basement? and there's a conveyor belt.
    The Egyptian gods Anubis, the jackal, sticks out in my mind in relation to this game.
    This game probably came out towards the end of the NES's lifespan.

    LampshadeNIGHTshade (Joke from the game)

    The last game is a side-scrolling shooter. I believe it's more realistic looking than your average side-scrolling NES shooter.
    I'm almost positive that when you start the game, you begin in a doorway inside a building.
    Less confident but still fairly sure you can also go up a few levels/platforms by climbing on stacks of tires.

    Rolling Thunder


    These games have been gnawing at the back of my mind for YEARS.
    Now that I've started using Moonshell2 as my firmware, I've been getting back into NES games and this came back with a vengeance. [​IMG]

    My poor guess for the last one is Rolling Thunder. I think it has tires in it but I might be confusing that with Shinobi.

    Yeah the last one definitely sounds like Rolling Thunder. The second level was the one with the tires I think.
