Retro Game goodness

I had an emulator installed on my psp and these games just took me back to when the family computer was still the only console dominating the markets. These are a must on my retro game list (posted in no particular order of course):

Adventure Island
Enter Mr. Higgins (yeah, very peculiar name) on an island and on a quest to save his girlfriend. On the screen you will see his health bar and a gauge which determines how much time you have left to finish the level. If the gauge completely becomes drained, he will lose a life, in order to avoid this fate, you must eat the fruits that are scattered in the level.You can equip Mr. Higgins with a skateboard complete with a helmet, a fairy, flying axes and fireballs.

Adventure Island (2)

Antarctic Adventure
A simple platformer where you must guide the penguin through a series of tracks all around the Antarctic. Avoid obstacles like gaps, seals popping out of the holes, you can also grab the fish that occasionally gets thrown out of the crevices.


Circus Charlie
Another platformer, guide charlie through circus-related acts. Well that's just about it I think. :-P

What I like most about this game is the bells changing colors as you shoot them repeatedly, of course different colors mean different abilities when you get them. I have to admit though, this game is really hard, I've never progressed more than 3 levels far.


Battle City
I still know the opening music of this game. Haha and of course I love it when you can destroy the metal walls and the big tanks don't stand a chance.

Jumping up and down on a rubber band is really enticing.


Super Mario Bros 1 to 3
Of course, I can never forget Mario and Luigi. They have been very iconic and they're probably the most popular video game characters of all time. I know each one of you have met the famous plumbers and shared their adventures.




Ah yes, the famous cheat comes into mind when this game is mentioned. Also the game music is unforgettable. For me, I can still remember my sister's face when I "accidentally" leave her behind on the waterfall stage. Hahaha.


Well that goes for my list, what triggers your nostalgia when it comes to retro games? What would be on your list?
