Gargoyle’s Quest 2
Once more I am late in my entries for the weekly pics, I am three behind so lets get started. This time around another NES title that grabbed my attention is chosen. Gargoyle’s Quest 2 for the NES makes not much sense title wise, but it doesn’t matter, it’s all about the gameplay. Everything was about the gameplay back then, and even though we got it wrong back then and still get it wrong today, we can still play some great games that some developers got right. Gargoyle’s Quest 2 is one of those side scrollers that shows of the NES capabilities of side scrollers….There were plenty for the console and some of them were just damn horrible it made me want to blow up the develeper’s head quarters but there were some others that were just right.
The game has an overview which makes it look a lot like the Dragon Warrior games but also once you enter a level, the game suddenly changes to a side scroller style level. It was very unique to combine these two gameplay techniques in one for its time. The gameplay is very interesting as you can use many techniques such as flying for a short period of time or shooting fire to defeat your enemies.
The game is just your average side scroller but this time around it was done right, the music is spendlid and the graphics are what you expected a NES game to deliver. It might now be a Gimmick! but it’s better than most of the other crap around! This one is highly recommended! It’s also not that expensive! You must get this classic for the NES!
