Yeesh, are these the only two NES games Nintendo could squeeze onto the service? They really need to talk to Square and get their support on this. Final Fantasy, the Dragon Quest games...heck, where are Rad Racer and Rad Racer 2?
I know there are some people out there that genuinely enjoy Donkey Kong 3. And that's fine. But does anyone actually, unironically, enjoy Wrecking Crew?!
Bah. Wake me up when we get Snow Bros. and/or Bubble Bobble.
Yup! As @Mop it up confirmed, it's the original SFC game. And as mentioned before, it's likely because Nintendo was too cheap to edit the ROM and take out the "Tetris" name or to pay royalties for the name (again).
Which wouldn' be a problem if they had N64 games on the service, and could just put Pokémon Puzzle League on Switch instead! Why is that game "stuck" on Wii/Wii U?!? *grumble grumble*
I played through Wild Guns with liberal use of the Rewind feature. Great game.
I played a bit of Operation Logic Bomb, and it's... not bad?
Panel de Pon is of course a classic, though I've only played a tiny bit of Tetris Attack as a kid, and probably won't play more than the 15 minute refresher I played today.
Weirdly, that taste of Panel de Pon game did get me in the mood to try Wario's Woods, which has a pretty neat twist on the falling block puzzle game. It's also just funny to see Wario on the NES for some reason.
Operation Logic Bomb is pretty good! I came pretty close to beating it. Apparently there is a secret missile weapon you can get in the game that DEFINITELY makes some parts of the game easier. Hoping to beat it sometime over the next week. THIS is the kind of game I come to this service for. Games I wouldn't normally buy, but are also decent and fun. Not the greatest, but solid entries on their respective platforms. I enjoyed Vice Project Doom as well. Still never beat Journey to Silius though...the continues and lives make the game pretty freaking difficult. It's definitely "NES hard."
From what I've been told, the SNES version was a North American exclusive. It never came out for the Super Famicom. It was available in Japan a couple of times via the Satellaview service, but never as a physical release. Because of that, Japan is *sort of* unaware of the SNES game. So they just...kinda...forget about it and focus only on the NES version.
Lousy excuse IMO, because the SNES version is great and I think more people should play it. But I'm pretty happy with the NES version so this is only a minor complaint.
