@Guillaume I think Game Boy games range between $2.99 and $3.99, while GBC games are $4.99 and $5.99. NES games should definitely have a range too. Some are worth $5, like Mega Man or Zelda, but some should definitely be less, like Wrecking Crew or Ice Climbers.
I don't understand why Game Boy games have flexible pricing (from $2.99 to $5.99, I think) while Ice Climbers is the same price as Mega Man.
1.) The game is called Ice Climber. Not plural. The characters are ice climbers, but the game is not named that way. (I'm not picking on you, EVERYONE makes this mistake, all of the time)
2.) I agree NES games should have flexible pricing, but thankfully I am exempt (as are you) in this case, thanks to our Ambassador status. Sucks for Ice Climber fans who are not Ambassadors though, I guess.
It's a curiosity. I would recommend checking out the free version on PC as it's very short and feels like Pixel was just practicing before making Cave Story. But if you absolutely must pay $5 to experience it, the game is just gorgeous on the 3DS screen.
