Episode 105 – Adventure Island (NES)



On episode 105, we have Adventure Island for the NES! Adventure Island is a side-scrolling platform game produced by Hudson Soft that was first released in Japan for the Famicom and MSX on September 12, 1986. It was later released in North America for the Nintendo Entertainment System on September 1988 and in the PAL region in 1992 under the title of Adventure Island Classic. (Thank you, Wikipedia)

It’s also deceptively difficult, and by deceptive, I mean that as cute as the shirtless, pot bellied protagonist looks, you will get your ass handed to you by snakes, frogs, campfires, and plethora of typically benign entities. Lot’s of shouting was had.

Vanessa Robinson (of the bands Cassandra and CIVC) was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to become an official Lord of the Game and help me beat the f***ng frogs in Stage 2.

Topics covered: Grunge music, f***ing frogs, and camping.
