SNES Retro Mix Vol. 1

The first mix was a 5 game series: Dino City, Stunt Race FX, The Rocketeer, Super Mario RPG and Super Adventure Island II.

Dino City (Platformer)– This is a somewhat forgotten platformer, and it’s actually a pretty good one too.  It has a good challenge to it, as I got wrecked by the boss to the 2nd Stage.   That’s as far as I played, but I did walk away with a Password: 4K1XTƎK3HN4M

Stunt Race FX (Racing) – This is one of the few SNES games that uses the Super FX Chip.  Nintendo has yet to make a sequel or re-release this game (speculation is because of legal issues with the Super FX Chip), but this was a very fun game.  I only played the Stunt Mode this time, and it was still fun, will play some races another time.

The Rocketeer (Adventure) – When I first got a SNES game as a kid this was a game I got with it (alongside Super Mario World), I believe it was part of a Price Club Bundle.  This was always very difficult and frustrating, the first stage is a flying stage and I think I only made it past there a couple of times, I’m not sure if I ever made it pass the next stage in the hanger.  Revisiting this as an adult was pretty fun because I was able to actually make it much further than I ever had before.  Unfortunately/fortunately I discovered that I didn’t miss out on anything as a kid.  I’m skeptical to ever play this again.

Super Mario RPG (RPG) – I love this game, I think everyone does.  When I was a kid I rented this game and played it all weekend and beat it, it was awesome!  I’ve revisited this a couple of times in the past 15 years with my wife, but we always get side tracked before we can reach the end.  Playing this time we didn’t get very far, but we at least got past the beginning, got Mallow in our party and beat the Purple Croc thief Croco.  We hope to pick this back up again and actually make it through the end.  *This was actually played/streamed  on the Wii U instead of the SNES

Super Adventure Island II (Adventure Platformer) – I was pleasantly surprised by this game.  I am a fan of Adventure Island as it is, but this one was different as it had RPG elements to it, allowing the player to equip different items and talk to people in cities.  Instead of just playing through a series of stages, you had to navigate and overworld map.  The design is similar to Zelda II: The Adventure of Link but the action is more traditional Adventure Island type.   I definitely plan on coming back to this
