ANTARCTIC ADVENTURE / Konami / NES



Cute old arcade game from Konami starring a penguin who is racing between research stations in Antarctica or something.

It's kind of fun, and cute, and a fairly impressive early use of forward scrolling for the NES (much better than other stuff from the period like Mach Rider). However, it's really simple and almost ridiculously easy ... I'm not even sure that there's any way to die or lose. Basically, as long as you have the patience to sit through the whole thing, you win every time you fire the game up.

I think this one had a release in English markets, so we might see it pop up here at some point. I don't think it's worth spending money on, though.
