Episode 11 – Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers (NES)



Do you like cute lil 8 bit chipmonks flinging each other around at Hunky Birds, angry cats, and highly unsafe machinery? We do too! We’re playing Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers for the NES. A beloved 2 player platforming masterpiece, CNDRR is yet one in a number of charming and brilliant Capcom Licensed titles.

Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers is a platform game featuring single and 2-player cooperative modes, allowing players to choose which levels to access via a map of various locations throughout the city, in a similar format to other Capcom games such as Bionic Commando. Each individual stage is set up as a side-scrolling action game where Chip and Dale can walk, jump, duck, and pick up objects such as acorns, crates, barrels, and balls to throw at enemies and bosses. Each character can withstand only three direct hits before they lose a life, and there are no passwords. In two-player mode, Controller 1 is Chip, Controller 2 is Dale. -wiki

It is the second Castlevania title released for the NES, following the original Castlevania.
