You Can’t Beat It: Battletoads

/ 7 years ago

Welcome to another edition of “You Can’t Beat It”. Today I bring you Battletoads from saurusandbones, beautifully still sealed in its original packaging. Did anyone ever play through this game? Sure at first it looked like a knockoff of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but the game had its own ideas and was generally a lot of fun…til you got to the racing level. According to numerous sites on the web, there are 13 levels but I don’t believe that. I don’t believe there is a level after the racing level…outside of someone beating it on Youtube, I’ve never seen anyone pass it. Does the game have an ending? I truly believe it doesn’t.

You Can’t Beat It: Ghosts N Goblins

/ 7 years ago

If you follow us over at Tee Till Death, Morgado started a regular posting called “You Can’t Afford It” which displays t-shirts that are just way out of anyone’s price range. Well what I’m doing with this is recalling games from my childhood that were basically unbeatable. If anyone told me that they actually beat Ghosts N Goblins, I wouldn’t believe it and I’d like actual evidence of this happening. That said, mecilop22 has a complete albeit opened copy of the original Ghosts N Goblins for the NES. Capcom created this character called Captain Commando and threw the logo on posters and would eventually get his own game in the form of an awesome arcade side scroller. The poster is really the interesting part here since they were made early on and discontinued as the company grew. The games on the poster are the clincher as these were launch titles for the company. You also get one of those black plastic sleeves which served absolutely no purpose. Anyone ever beat this game? I won’t believe you but I’d love to hear about it.
