Goonies, The
Review 1:
The Goonies is a great multi-level platformer game based on movie of the
same name. Rob Strongman says it all in his review of the NES version for about what makes this game a classic: "The Goonies
controls a lot like The Goonies II. However, there the similarities end.
TGII was more like a Metroidesque quest game, while The Goonies is more
of a puzzle game, kind of like the old game Montezuma's Revenge (SMS).
Mikey must run around the Fratelli's hideout, freeing the other Goonies
from these rooms that they've been locked in by Mama and her boys. To
open the doors (each one marked by a huge skull), you must collect a bomb
and set it off in front of the door. The rats running around the
Fratelli's hideout carry bombs, as well as other items. You must also
find keys, which are also trapped behind doors. When you have gathered
all of the keys in a level and freed the trapped Goonie, you can move
onto the next level. ...The controls run pretty smoothly - I had very few
problems with them. The controls are quite simple - A jumps, B kicks and
pushing Down and B drops bombs. A word of warning, though: when you've
dropped a bomb, GET OUT OF THE WAY! Mikey has a life bar, but a bomb
blast will kill him instantly. The music is also quite good - the game
even has a rendition of Cyndi Lauper's "The Goonies 'R Good Enough". It
sounds just like the one in The Goonies II. The rest of the music,
although not quite as memorable, is pretty good." The game is overall
well worth a look, especially if you enjoy puzzle/arcade hybrids like
Epyx' Impossible Mission II. Note: the game was never made for PC. This
download is the MSX version recompiled to work in DOS with no emulator

Review 2:

This game is of course based on the movie "The Goonies". In the game you
play with one of the gangmembers of the goonies and you have to rescue
your friends. You do this by running across different platform levels in
which you encounter all kinds of enemies.
