    Goodies! i've been waiting for this release. Played it back in the Nes days, and again recently with an emu on my ds, but nothing beats my tv set for 8-bit goodness [​IMG]
    Nice mix of Adventure and Action, kinda like a tropical Zelda.

    I am sort of surprised more are not talking about this game.

    I played it back on the Nes when it had first came out.. I do not remember much about it except for liking it a lot.. Yeah for VC releases.. time for me to buy some credits.

    This has been on the real VC for months, like a few other recent scene releases. Probably because it came out before a dumping method was known.

    This is an absolutely epic game...its like Zelda but in a tropical environment...I remember owning this while I was a kid...it came with this strange letter attached the manual which I would have to wet with water and revealed a code. That was SO AWESOME.

    This is one of the very few first-party Nintendo titles never released in Japan. Pokemon Puzzle League was another.

    Dr. Mario 64 didn't reach N64 there, but its GC port was included on the JP-only Nintendo Puzzle Collection.
