Well I don't know adventure island, ---- the nes never really took off in
England, so I've only ever played nes titles in collections on other
machines, ---- but audio Contra, Castlevania or Turrican would be great.
Turrican is an absolute favourite game series of mine, sinse it has such a
simple principle, ---- collect one of the four weapons, blast enemies and
bosses, try to find the exit, ---- no saving, no puzles or locked doors,
just you, your main gun and a few sub weapons and lots of nasty robots. Yet
it has hours of replayability owing to the truly huge level size and the
amount of extra lives and extra weapon power ups hidden all over the
place, ---- which also serve to reward the player for exploration.
Turrican was in concept a mix of Contra and Metroid, ---- large exploration
style mazes (you even have the ability to turn into a wheel and roll along
the ground), and Contra, ---- many enemies on screen at once and a number of
big weapons to choose, ---- no complex equipping structure, just a number of
lives and levels to complete.
Something like that in audio would be fantastic!
Beware the grue!
