|Just to be fair, I'm basing this review on my experience with the game when I first played it way-back-when. I have yet to will myself to play the thing again. In any case, I hated this game.
How can I put this into words? The graphics creeped me out, and I really don't know why. There's something fundamentally wrong with the way this game looks, and it goes beyond the fact that everything looks like it was rendered in a bootleg copy of MS Paint. By a three-year-old. With a learning disability.
The music in the game made me want to shoot myself. It sounded like the aforementioned three-year-old trying to play the accordian.
The play control was all right, I guess, but I kept getting stuck while I was looking for Warp Zones. And unlike, say, The Legend of Zelda or Ninja Gaiden, this game isn't fun or rewarding enough to justify the frustration.
Did I mention that I hated this game? Even talking about it right now is bringing up a nasty bile taste in my throat.
You can check this out for yourself and draw your own conclusions, but for me, this was one of the worst games I ever played on any gaming system. And not in an Ed Wood "So bad it's funny" kind of way. It's more like smashing your thumb with a hammer or squirting lemon juice in your eye.

|Yup... yup. Ok then, this game is a classic that I grew up with. I never beat it until recently when I downloaded it onto my computer and me and my friend stayed up and played ROMs all nite. I must warn you, if you are looking for a game with depth and a plot, do NOT download this. If you want just pure solid action and confusion, here ya go. Basically you're some guy looking for your father in a house full of monsters, hidden caves and demons.
I will give you a tip too - HIT EVERYTHING. If there is a big blank wall, hit all over it. If there is a wall with crap on it, hit it too. Hit any part of the wall that isn't a door, a closet, a credenza, a table, or a window. Hit everything else. There are holes everywhere, and you need to find them to beat the game.
