City Connection, Jaleco, NES.
“There is a bus that will connect you to the city. First you take the bus that stops down by the corner, the 253, down to the train station. Take the train to the main station, and then walk to the bus depot and get on the 1492, and it will take you back to the main station. From there you can take the train back to the city.”
Metal Slug, D4 Enterprise, Neo Geo.
“No, deary, slugs are made of goo, and they hate it when you poor salt and lemon juice on them, and then pick them up and swing them around the room by their tails! Weeee! Then let go and they fly through the air like a flying slug. They love that!”
