NES Works covers Obake no Q•Tarou, Binary Land and Bomberman
Working through the NES library
The latest episode of NES Works has released, and once again Jeremy Parish painstakingly details everything and anything both the NES and the Famicom had to offer.
A pair of familiar American NES releases (more or less) bookend the real highlight of this episode: A charming little puzzle action game called Binary Land, which sees Hudson slipping back into early Famicom Pulse Line/NES Black Box mode and reminding us of the appeal of the console’s formative works here in late 1985’s era of tiresome jank.
Speaking of jank, TOSE and Bandai kick things off with the middling Obake no Q•Tarou, which Americans will recognize as the middling Chubby Cherub. And then we have Bomberman, which was covered recently on NES Works 1988, but there are still new details to share.
