Lost Classics: Xexyz (NES)

November 2, 2006 at 12:37 pm (Lost Classics, Video Games)

Lets head back to 1989.  Hudson soft released this often overlooked but high quality action game on the NES.  You play as Apollo and your goal is to rescue the princess.  Okay, so the plot isn’t all that original, but the levels offer up a mix of side scrolling shooter levels and platforming.  It’s linear, but there are hidden areas to discover, as well as new upgrades and abilities.  It’s kinda like Gradius meets Mega Man and Metroid.  There is a small chance that this could come to the virtual console, so check out the rom until then.

BTW, sorry about last week’s Lost Classic.  I was too busy with training to post it here.  You can read it vover at Powet however.
