My NES started to act up, having a new connector and all, last time I played on it with my brother. It probably got some dust in the connector, but I was smart enough to not blow it. Learn from history, and your and others’ past mistakes, and don’t blow into the cartridges. They do remove the dust but the humid exhaled air will slowly corrode the contacts.
Anyhow, it seems as if the games started to glitch, and I suspect there was a glitch gremlin in there messing everything around. One could’ve said “Son of a Glitch” but instead I was amused. Seeing a glitchy version of Mario Bros. was glitchin’ and it was all fun and dandy until the game crashed. Sure, this is Nintendo we’re talking about so there was no blood, but watching a Koopa and a Crab and poor ole Luigi exploded in a whole lot of pieces was a bit weird, but still amusing. Rest in Pieces, Luigi.
So we inserted Blue Shadow (Shadow of the Ninja in the US) instead and lo and behold: a glitchy title screen that we couldn’t get past and which read BLHAI” SHAD6”’ TM TM.
You could choose to play SPTAMER or APTAMERS, and I never knew Vatsuue published the game! I always thought it was Natsume (Serious Fun!)
Also, this game is Licevced by Vintendg CG. Sc vhat’s vvhy it’z gvichy!
