some days ago, I posted about one of the classics of mine (and lots of people's) childhood, a NES plataformer called Yo! Noid, but I feel I didn't talked enough, hahaha, so, here's a little more detailed review.
Lauched in 1990, by Capcom, the game features the Noid (Domino's pizza mascot) as its main star. the gameplay consists in going through fourteen different side-scrolling levels throughout various locations of New York City (including an 8-bit rendition of Central Park) to battle his evil duplicate, Mr. Green, for the public good, and for the massive pizza reward!
As was the case with many Capcom games based on cartoon characters, Yo! Noid had detailed cartoon graphics and sound effects for its time. I remember when I first played it, I felt in love instantly, even though I didn't even know what was Domino's pizza (I'm not from USA), but the great gameplay, creative use of itens and fun visuals in general really caught me.
You are reading it, but don't know WTF I'm talking about? or you're a long-time fan of this game and now craves for some yoyo-enemy-bashing? don't fear, oh curious reader. you can play it online right here! ;)
-the back cover of the instruction manual included a $1 off Domino's Pizza coupon.
-Yo! Noid was actually a modified version of a game called Kamen No Ninja Hanamaru.
So, going to eat some pizza and play some NES now. see you guys next post!
