ADVENTURE ISLAND / Hudson / NES
Alright, here's Master "Restless Legs" Higgins in the first of his so-so running and jumping adventures.
I always found these games pretty mediocre, but some people enjoy the simple oldschool arcade style and colorful graphics.
Basically, you run to the right and jump stuff. Sometimes you get axes to chuck at the foes, or a skateboard which really seems to be more of a hindrance than anything.
Don't forget that your life is constantly dwindling and you have to keep stuffing your face with random fruit to survive.
As stated, it's a pretty simple and repetitive game with lots of jumping. I give it a very hearty 'meh'.
Nobody gonna break Master Higgins' stride
