A taste of Goemon Nostalgia.


Two games that my brothers and I loved during the 64 era was Mystical Ninja: starring Goemon and Goemon’s Great Adventure. Developed by Konami and obscure to western audiences, the Goemon titles were some of the best action games on the Big N’s 64 bit console. I remember the games fondly with the obscure characters and simple combat, but most of all the tunes in the game are still what I remember most. Both songs are fantastic; I would leave the title screen play over and over. I had a game save right before the Impact Theme just to listen to the song and play the section over and over again. Watching Impact plummet down a whole was priceless, and Sasuke is still my favorite character from the series. Each title can be nabbed from Amazon for around $35 used and is well worth your time to hunt down. In light of our recent outage, here is some good laughs and some Japanese quirkiness.

    Yay I wasn’t the only one that played Ballz!!!! But the real question is did you play Earth Worm Jim?

      Ah, it’s like walking down memory lane 🙂 I remember Earth Worm Jim for the sound effects, that and Streets of Rage for the mega drive.

    I still have a SNES copy of Ballz, it was a ok fighter. Just never judge a game by it’s catchy tunes. Look at Dragon’s Dogma; fun game, rocking menu music. B’z – Into Free, awesome song.

    OMG hate on me all you want Rick but this is the weirdest looking game of all time… but then again I played BALLZ for super nintendo so I really can’t say much I suppose.

    Thank both of you. I have been trying to tell Brad how great these games are.

    This takes me back, I was just talking to someone on Twitter the other day about games from ‘back in the day’, it’s amazing how the music sticks in your mind and you can recall it years later.


Have your say
