With this episode, NES Works Gaiden comes to its true and proper end, at least in terms of chronicling the Famicom’s early years. And it goes out, if not with a bang, then at least with a couple of games developed by reliable studios: HAL Laboratory and Pax Softnica.
See, as dire as things got toward the back half of 1985, the Famicom wouldn’t be entirely doom-and-gloom. You still had good and middling games by great and competent developers, sometimes.
Anyway, from here on out, NES Works Gaiden will touch on random Famicom releases of note along with more esoteric concerns.
