Yes, Startropics was an extremely good game for the NES. Besides the
above things you mentioned I liked the fact that buttons to unlock
doors, chests, etc were hidden. You actually had to jump on a certain
platform in order to get that particular button to appear, jump on the
button, and then the door or chest would open letting you through.
Sometimes it wasn't obvious where to jump to get those hidden buttons
to appear. Then, there was a little bit of everything when it came to
enemies. There were blob like creatures that looked like giant jelly
fish, undead pirates, ghosts, mummy looking things, giant rats, and so
on. You had weapons ranging from a yoyo to super lasers. In a way the
game was pretty strange, but a cool kind of strainge. It was great fun
that's for sure.
