Trading games for games ^_^

A guy recently contacted me because he saw that I had some games for trade on my blog, we started emailing back and forth and he actually had a bunch of Famicom games and a few other games that I didn’t have, so we made a nice deal ^_^ He received a few boxed Sega Mega Drive and Master System games for a few loose Famicom and Game Boy carts. I’m really happy with the trade, especially with the cute handheld I also got! It’s TETRIS :D And I played it for almost 2 hours when it first arrived XD

What’s odd about this Tetris game is that it only gives you points for each block you place, you don’t get points for making rows or even a “Tetris”.. it’s seems to be more mission based, once in a while you level up and they clear the board and give you a piece of the rocket it seems :) Then it starts over, slightly more difficult. It also took a while to get into the controls, since it doesn’t have an up or down button, at least down I’m used to pressing when I wan’t them to go a bit faster, here there’s only left and right. Instead there’s a drop-button where A or B usually sits, I accidentally pressed this one so many times and just threw the piece down XD It was a nice challenge though!

The Famicom games I got were mainly the ones you’ve gotten to see my first Famicom Impressions posts of ^_^ There’s yet another one coming soon ;D

I picked a bunch of Game Boy games that I thought looked interesting, these Japanese carts still deceive me though XD Only a handful were playable, the rest were mainly RPGs or some kind of strategy or weird Japanese game that was just boring.. Maybe I should start making Game Boy impressions as well :)

The final one  among the pictures above is a game by Konami called Hunter X Hunter: Hunter no Keifu, not to be confused with Hunter X Hunter: Kindan no Hihou. I briefly looked up the gameplay beforehand, which I usually never do, and I thought this was an awesome Castlevania-like sidescrolling platformer (which Kindan no Hihou is), but this one is not that… I don’t even know what genre this specifies under.. RPG/Strategy/walk-around-pointlessly-on-grids-without-any-action-what-so-ever?!? Anyway, below is some gameplay from it.. it has some nice music that quickly becomes repetitive, but apart from that I’m completely lost to it’s purpose.. I have since ordered Hunter X hunter: Kindan no Hihou through eBay, can’t wait for that one to arrive! :D
