this is weird, a famicom game. huh

Asponge has picked a fair amount of Famicom games, which is pretty cool. The nes catalogue really expands when you include those. Outside of language barrier games, you can find some great games and interesting knock offs. We played Circus Charlie recently, which is one of my favs.

It's a really fun game that's a bit harder than it looks.

 

There are bonus items you can trigger in the NES version by doing specific actions. The mushroom is doable but the rest are absurd. The leaf looks like the easiest, but good luck getting it. I've occasionally gotten the leaf to appear by using both thumbs on the up and down buttons on my controller.

These look crazy, but I gotta try for em!

 

"Giant Beetle: 20 consecutive hits on the left balloon generator. Worth 80,000 points and gives 5 extra lives." WTH?!? What a bonus!
