You hit the nail right in the face. I always really liked the screen-based play of these two games and wished they had just a few more levels. They felt like slow moving platform puzzles, and I wish they lasted just a bit longer.

Out of curiosity, where is it exactly that you live with one-room school houses and a video store 35 miles away? The 19th century?

I grew up in an old mining town in rural Oregon. At various times throughout my childhood, my family of four served as literally half the population within "city limits" (though my dad was often away on the road, as a long-haul truck driver), and there were people who lived further out on farms. So there was a one-room schoolhouse for grades K-8, with a local teacher (during most years) and any older students got to look forward to an hour bus ride to the high school 45 miles away. The nearest town with medical facilities was actually 35 miles away by paved road, closer if you didn't mind gravel back roads that weren't dependably navigable in harsh weather. It was a unique childhood by late 20th-century standards, for sure. You can perhaps understand why I had so much time to spend reading and writing and playing video games.

I'm glad you liked the review. I hope to continue producing a lot more retro content in the immediate future and I hope others (like you) will continue doing the same.

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

I can only produce retro content; the NES and SNES are the only system I own right now! Retro is what this site does best.
