Can they patch the exploit? If so, patch it, then start it again.

It has to do with constantly pausing to shave almost half a second.

that's what the contestants get for buying this game in the first place.

For buying something fun that's more worth $15 than spending the $80 on the 16 NES games?

If there where prizes then it's ok to cancel if they don't win anything who cares in the first place.

I don't partecipate to useless contests and if it's a prized contest i want it be fair.

These dislikes are from people that where cheating, anti-nintendo trolls or people that hates everything.

Or, the worst kind, people who didn't care to think about what i said above.

To say that you're getting an $80 package or anything near that is a lie.
We all know that the NES VC pricing is flawed because none of those games should be $5 save for Zelda, or SMB.
We also know that we're not getting the full package of any of these games. Except for the ones low of quantity. Baseball, Tennis, Donkey Kong, Urban Champion.
Its a nice but had it been $10, or had it had games like Metroid, Kirby's Adventure, Tetris, or more SMB games. Then I could call it worth your time and money, but as we speak, plenty of people got duped, probably because they had the same logic as you had.

Haha that is priceless ^^

And how were you duped exactly?

Did you actually listen to what they said on the ND? Because they actually said it was challenge.
Don't you at least read title description before buying?

NES remix is a great game, period.

On topic, it probably was the best thing to do.

Just like with Swap Note, a handful of people ruin it for everyone.

I certainly don't feel duped and I've owned all the games included multiple times over.

It's a fun game, and for the time I've gotten out of it, well worth the $15. Made many of the classics feel fresh to me again.

If this is the exploit, that's really lame. I was hoping that people would have found exploits to get faster times by desyncing and breaking apart the clones, sort of like how Smash players and able to get the Ice Climbers to do things not originally intended. I've been able to get the Luigi clones to travel different directions by messing with the timing of their jumps but I wasn't able to find a way to make it improve my time.

I got my 7.1, which I'm pretty sure is the lowest you can get without cheating. My only complaint is how many times I tried to get under 7.1 once the 7.0 showed up.

We don't need to do this stage again, patch it up, and do a new one on a new level. I've been lowering my times pretty low on stuff in anticipation of new contests.

wow, didn't know there was an exploit for NES remix and I absolutely love NES remix. I hope it sells enough copies to convince Nintendo to make a sequel or a SNES Remix version of the game :) Imagine adding F-Zero, Link to the Past, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, etc

I never said you were getting the full package or $80 worth. I was saying it was more worth spending $15 on pieces of those games than spending $80 for the full versions of each game. My logic had nothing to do with what you think.

The only games worth $5 in the bunch are Zelda and Mario. If you wanted Zelda & Mario, buy them for $10. NES Remix was advertised as challenges/microgames of tons of games that would never be worth getting the full games of. This lets them not overstay their welcome and not cost as much. Plus you get to experience many of them.

Most of the games on it are mundane on their own. This gives some kind of new life to them. It's also basically a cheap 9-Volt Only WarioWare. Nobody was duped unless they ACTUALLY thought they were getting full games, and if they did, they were not paying attention and that's their own fault. People keep thinking it should've included full games, but nobody likes half of them on their own, and the ones they do like are either entirely there, or would be cheaper to just buy them.

As for Metroid, Kirby, SMB 2&3, etc- Obviously they were held back for a future installment or even DLC. They probably wanted to see how well reception was to these challenges, then they'd do more. It's all their oldest/black box games and Zelda (to entice people). I honestly believe Nintendo held many back specifically for an NES Remix 2 or DLC like I said. They left out too many obvious games like Punch Out, Lolo, Kid Icarus, Zelda 2, Wario's Woods and what was said before.

22 hours for all 612 stars, all rainbowed, and all stamps(this is not counting time on contest and lowering times). There are $60 games that are shorter.

Also, the main point is the remixes, which combines elements from the games, or changes things about them. Sure, I think $10 would probabably sell the game like hotcakes, and there is always potential for an eShop sale, but I have no regrets buying it at $15. I bought Ducktales on sale for 7.50. Awesome at that price, but I would have felt a little bad had I paid full price($15).

Probably a lot of Nintendo doubters just see that it uses classic games for a template and just assume it's a rehash rip-off and don't really know what the game is actually about.

Yeah, seriously, not a very smart remark. Also, maybe, read Before buying things. I Always do that, that keeps me from being disappointed when I spend money.

This game is NOT worth the $15, whether you are a big Nintendo fan who gets nostalgic for anything of "Classic Quality". Or if you have a competitive drive. This will please you little, but tease you alot. Its too short/too expensive. This game is pretty much similar to IOS games that offer challanges, however those are usually interesting (Cut the Rope & Cut the Rope 2) this one has the audacity to give us 200. Good on paper, but some of these challenges are boring. NES Remix does few interesting remixes, and had I not reviewed this, I would have completely regretted my decision.

"it is NOT Worth the $15" is completely illogical to say. Not everyone Thinks exectly like you, or rather, no one does. Some people will Think it's not Worth it, but a LOT will Think it is.

And you thinking a lot if it is boring doesn't make it a fact that others do. ^^

Still a dumb comment. It has a ton of levels to play, 612 stars to get and rainbowing them all increases the replay value drastically. Content wise, $15 is very worth it.

F-ing mobile gamers complaining about the price. Games usually cost 40-60 bucks... this is 15... Just look at those numbers.
