There are just so many Nintendo games out there, who has time to play them all? Apparently I do; all of them, 5 min per game. After my playing I will give each game a rating of 0 or 1. Sometimes I will have guests drop by and help.

Flying Warriors - 1/1

I felt the familiarity to Flying Dragon right away. I found out later that it is a sequel to that game! Cool. The game is a side-scrolling platformer that features multiple play styles. Like in the previous game you have these one-on-one duels which involve you pressing buttons at careful times. Sort of like an early version of a quicktime event. The graphics are nice with large colorful sprites and the animation is smooth. Easy 1/1 here.

Flying Dragon the Secret Scroll - 1/1

My first experience with this game was watching Chief Arino play it, and it looked pretty sweet. I actually tried it out for a couple of hours after watching that GCCX episode and it was as fun as I expected. I think I got to level 3 before throwing in the towel. It’s a shame we didn’t beat level one in our first sitting, in between levels you fight in a martial arts tournaments and it’s pretty innovative.

The Flintstones Surprise at Dinosaur Peak - 1/1

Few people have played this game outside of the emulation world. It has always been very rare, as it allegedly only available as a rental from Blockbuster (not sure who thought that was a better idea than just releasing it). Now it fetches prices as high as $1000 on the after market.

The game itself? Pretty great! Once we figured out that you can toggle between Fred and Barney an entire world opened up. The game plays a bit like the Lost Vikings if you have ever played that. both Fred and Barney have unique abilities you must use to complete the levels, I am assuming later in the game multiple paths might be available adding some replay value.

Flight of the Intruder - 0/1

Another garbage flight simulator… The world really wasn’t ready for these in the 8-bit era. I found the game incredibly dull, but maybe a die hard air combat fan might … still find it incredibly dull.

Fist of the North Star - 1/1

How can you go wrong with the concept of a traveling martial arts master who can make people’s heads explode in a post-apocolytic setting? Well often times bad video game publishers do find a way, but not in this case! Fist of the North Stare delivers! This game is a no-frill beat ’em up and there is nothing wrong with that. The music is upbeat, the animation is smooth and Nintendo wasn’t stingy with the exploding bodies.

Perfect Fit - 1/1

The final installment in the Fisher Price series. This is a simplistic shape-matching game. The game has the player matching objects with with silhouettes. Sometimes the objects need to be flipped horizontally or vertically (sometimes both!) Very simply, but it functions for a small child. Good work.

I Can Remember - 1/1

I know what you are thinking. This game is trash right? Well you aren’t wrong, by today’s standards this game is primitive, ugly and boring. Remember though, it was developed for 5-year olds. If I was a parent in the early 90s I wouldn’t hate seeing my child play this. It’s a very playable memory game with no mess or clean up. I good effort for toy company.

Firehouse Rescue - 1/1

I’ll come right out and say it, I wanted to give this a 0. However looking at this game from the perspective of a 3-5 year old child, there isn’t much that is terrible about it. Could it be better? Of course! But as a preliminary effort of a toy company to make an NES game for kids. Remember that making an NES game wasn’t a cash grab back in the 80s. NES developers weren’t just sitting around waiting for work like iOS developers are now. It was a serious and risky undertaking to create a video game in this totally untested environment. Fisher Price did a good job here.

Firehawk - 1/1

What a sweet game! The controls take a second to get used to but once you got it it feels just like flying a real helicopter … probably. In this game you need to go various cities in your badass helicopter equipped with bombs and machine guns. Your job is to rescue a green dude, maybe in later levels you need to get multiple dudes. When you find the dude the game changes modes from a top-down shooter to a sort of early-era quicktime event. You need to press A or B at correct times to shoot down enemies before they take you down. I need to give it props for pioneering quicktime events right? Little details like the typewriter keys moving when the letter is typed really sell this game. Resounding 1/1 check this one out.

  • Fire’n Ice - 1/1

    I am not a huge fan of puzzle games but I know a good one when I see one. Fire and Ice has exceptional graphics and sound on top of the innovative gameplay. I do not recall ever playing a puzzle game like this before, and I had a decent time. This probably would have been a pretty fun game to own and mess around with every now and then.
