Beat Formula One: Built to Win over the last few days. Ended up playing through it nearly 3 times. Had my laptop freeze near the end twice. Thankfully it's not overly long or challenging. Pretty decent though and kind neat how you can upgrade your vehicle and earn new licenses.



Back when we were doing the challenge, put a ton of time into this, and about 1/3 of the way through the formula 1 section, I hit a total brick wall. Up to that point it was a great game, but it felt like it got cheap at the highest class.

You don't need to win every race in the game though so you could just pick and choose the tracks you find easiest in the late game, assuming you ranked first in all the earlier classes. Sure some of those final stages are tough, but if I remember right you only needed to do 2 of them to get the ending.

Was able to get a win on Star Soldier just now. Made it through the last 3 levels on my final credit, which is nerve-racking. 
It was a challenge for sure, but easier than many other early shmups due to short levels, easy bosses, shields, screen clears and a great powerup if you can mash faster than the auto fire.

Finished Top Player's Tennis. Not too bad of a sports game in terms of controls and different kinds of CPU AIs. Went on waaaay to long though before you get the ending. Overall rating: Greart

Why not follow up some Tennis with even more Tennis!! Beat Racket Attack just now. It has noticeably worse controls and a very odd camera that transitions after the serve and follows the ball around rather than just showing you the whole court. It starts off not too bad, but the last couple matches really crank up the challenge with the CPU learning how to serve and return balls all of the sudden.

Spent the last week figuring out and grinding through F117A Stealth Fighter. It's actually got a neat progression system where you have to earn 10 medals by doing specific challenges in order to unlock the final 3 stages you need to beat the game. That was thankfully the last flight sim on the NES I needed to play!

Beat Milon's Secret Castle tonight. It is a mess. Cool early idea that just doesn't hold up. Everything is hidden so there is lots of shooting/jumping/pushing every block to reveal items. There is ZERO invincibility frames so if you get hit by something it has the opportunity to drain you very fast. Bosses are especially tough because of that, with the exception of the final boss which I thought was actually the easiest (once you figure out which of the 4 possible bosses is the real one). Thankfully the game isn't too overwhelming in length.

Beat Loopz after working on Mode C for the past several days. The last half of that mode is pretty rough. Very little reaction time to recreate puzzles that get progressively harder and codes only pop up every 5 levels so you have to get quite good at them to be able to beat all 5 in a row. With some very minor tweaks it could have been a lot more enjoyable.

Finished off Snake's Revenge: Metal Gear II today. I liked it a bit better than the first game. It's got some VERY mean boss fights, but it was much more straightforward than the original and wasn't as confusing to navigate. Made as mistake at the end and got to pretty well the very last part of the game, but missed a key item so I had to redo the last area again, but even then it wasn't as frustrating as the first game was. Traps are dumb.
