It’s the beginning of the month and that means it’s SUPER THUMBS time. Now this edition I will go into games from FOUR different systems, a Super Thumbs first. Also another Super Thumbs first! All of these reviews aren’t exactly…glowing?? 

A Boy and his Blob (NES, 1989)

A Boy and His Blob is one of the first games I can remember playing. I have some fond memories even though it was quite the difficult game! The game involves you playing as the boy with your pet.. blob. The goal is to get all the treasure chests in the underground and the subway as well as gain different jellybeans to feed to you blob and make him do different wacky things! It is a very fun game to just mess around in and not actually do wha t your supposed to. Collecting treasures is quite challenging as many are grasped in the clutches of death! Once you get the treasures however the rest is easy. Returning the blob to his homeland! Anyways it’s some good fun to be had, even if you dont make it that far!

Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Crossroads of Time (SNES, 1995)

Now video games based off TV shows or movies are never really any good. I know that this may be changing nowadays but, back in ’95 it was very much true! As with most Star Trek games they have lousy graphics and complex gameplay that wasn’t all that entreating. You control Sisco the captain of the station through side scrolling missions throughout the station, I suppose with intent of saving the world or somesort. It took me countless tries and continues to get through most this game and I just didn’t walk away satisfied at all!

Tecmo Super Bowl (SNES, 1993)

Tecmo football games were always my favorite even back when they had the fake teams. They are simple and very easy to learn games but can also provide some challenge at higher difficulties. Winning the actual Super Bowl in this game was not easy and actually felt like an accomplishment. The game itself is quite enjoyable. It offers a season mode and lets you track your stats. Big plays like long runs or interceptions are also easy to come by. GOOD TIMES.

Onimusha: Warlords (PS2, 2001)

This game has some good concepts in it. The fighting is fluid and while not easy at first it is learnable and you can get into it after some practice. One thing that bugged me was the backgrounds and surrounding areas just always seemed out of place and the camera would get stuck a lot. The colors were also dark and it made it hard to see. Now I never actually made it through this game all that far because well.. my chair sat down on the disc and it broke. Now if that was intentional or not isn’t actually known .. wink wink.. but it was an ok game, nothing all that entreating though.

The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Juggernauts (GBO, 1992)

Simpsons games! There is like what, six billion of them? A few of the are good but lots are just junk made to sell. I have quite a lot of this junk laying around too! Now this is a Game Boy game and it’s pretty much just a bunch of minigames stuck together. You go through these minigames collecting. Some of these games are actually fun; some are just painful and leave you begging for it to just end! Overall the experience isn’t something that would bring you back and for me, it was one of those games you play a few times and then just sits somewhere and collects dust. Lots and lots of dust.
