Adventure Island IV

If there is a soul or spirit in our beloved NES, itís destined to grow happier in its old age. Itís just how people are wired -- despite the physical failings or grey hair we collect along the way, at a certain age we become content and comfortable with ourselves.

This must be how Master Higgins felt coming into Adventure Island IV, the final official Japanese Famicom release. He had never looked better: slimmer, a couple gray hairs perhaps, happy with his long-term paramour. Even better -- while the forces of evil had kidnapped his dinosaur friends, he was relieved to see his lady at home safe and sound. For once, he could take his time grabbing fruit, exploring a pleasantly compact island world, rescuing his imperiled prehistoric pals at leisure, and even strutting his button-mashing skills for the occasional minigame.

Re: Adventure Island IV

I liked Adventure Island 2 too.
While out walking one day, my daughter said:
'Hey, look! There's a Nintendo game under the garbage {dumpster} over there!'

I said
'No way, even if it is a game, there's probably a reason why it's there'
But we got it home, wiped it off {even though it was pretty clean} and tried it - and it worked perfectly!

Great game, lots of fun.
Adventure Island II Ľ Nintendo
so the fourth game must be just as good.
{ I have yet to play it}
Adventure Island IV Ľ Nintendo

I guess it's true what they say: One mans trash is another mans treasure.

Re: Adventure Island IV

I think my best found on the street score was a Super Mario Land 2 six Golden Coins about a month after it came out.

It was on the side of a Highway so there was no way to figure out where it came from.

It needed a home so I was happy to oblige.
