Innovative NES shooter
Leave it to Nintendo to make a fun, kid-friendly light gun game. Combining a gallery shooter and a platformer, this game will challenge your Zapper skills starting from the very first level. In fact, if you are used to playing slower-paced games like Duck Hunt, you may find the very first level impossible to pass, since this game requires a faster shooting technique to destroy an entire avalanche of boulders dropping on your protagonist. The trick is to shoot without pulling the trigger all the way -- doing this lets you use the Zapper as a rapid-fire weapon, and also eases the strain of the shooting action, of which there is certainly no shortage here. Overall a fun title, but admittedly not for true beginners.
