Any of you playing through the NES original in anticipation? I just might give it a go myself.
Oh I played it PLENTY back in the day, and it was a hard ass bitch. I hung in there like a trooper and finished it off eventually, but I'm guessing my skills nowadays might be lacking in comparison to then.
Same here. I recall beating it, or close to it anyway. And to think that the U.S. version was supposed to be much easier than the original Japanese Famicom one.
I gave the NES original a try last night, and I said exactly what I said when I tried the game for the very first time back then: "Not being able to jump is Just. Too. Weird." Did manage to make it to Area 3, though.
