Re: Adventure Island - August 2011

I chose this one and I'm curious if anyone can beat it in 5 continues, myself included.

I can get to Area 4 consistently losing 0-1 lives. However the game then seriously ramps up the difficulty.

If you die and lose all your weapons in later levels it gets much much harder forcing you to make precision jumps over enemies.

Re: Adventure Island - August 2011

I will try to beat it later this week, although i remember it as a hard game...
I remember how important is to keep your weapons in this game. I guess this is the kind of game where you have a better chance finishing it in one shot

I have beaten it in the past, but it took a lot of continues. I remember one levels jumping across falling platforms and as if that wasn't hard enough they put in enemies and a fire pit and the edge of the final platform

There is a Hudson Bee in a hidden egg somewhere in Area 1 Round 1. Once you have it after you lose your final life on the game over screen, hold right and press start.

You will start at the beginning of the Round you died on IE if you died in area 3 round 3 thats where you pick up again

It's in the original instruction book and listed in the directions under the game on the site.

I asked about this in the Game Masters questions threads and got the ok from someone a while ago though I can't seem to find the thread now

I suck at this game. I lose all of my stuff, and then it ceases to be possible to win.

It's possible, it's just it becomes 100x harder. It's like the programmers gave you the finger for having the balls to die

Re: Adventure Island - August 2011

Yeah, basically. It is possible, just not something I have the capacity to do.
Sure, I can dodge bullets like a pro, but I can't jump over enemies at the right time.

Re: Adventure Island - August 2011

Now here's a question. Are we allowing Continues in this game seeing as you have to find the Hudson's Bee in order to be able to continue? I assume 5 continues max will be the rule assuming it is allowed.

My one and only time getting all the way through this game without Continuing was when I was younger and I avoided Skateboards and got the Fireball weapon and never gave it up. I can't tell you how many tons of hours I played this game to get good enough to do that and I don't think I have the patience to do that again.
