The 73% Trials - Episode 4 : Castelian (NES)

Recommended Posts

Iiiiinteresting ;)

 

All I'll say about the entire series on that score is, 73% can be dead wrong in both directions.

I like the game but haven't played the Amiga version. IIRC power-ups give you multiple shots and barriers. And there's a nice bonus level where you protect cattle.

 

Haven't played it for a long time so not sure if I've misremembered any of that.

You are right about the cattle and barriers. I think a bit of that footage made it in.

 

I didn't encounter a multishot one but it's possible.

 

The Amiga version bit really does seem to be the important qualifier here, a lot of the problems are in the conversion.

In 1994 there were two Mickey Mouse games in as many months.  Is that why one of them got 73% in Super Play or were there shenanigans?

Gunstar Heroes is considered by many to be one of the standout Mega Drive games.  But Sega Power gave it the dreaded 73% on launch.  Do they have good reasoning or was this a reviewer who couldn't be bothered?  Court is in session.

Castelian went by many names, Subline, Tower Toppler, Kyoro Chan Land and most famously, Nebulus but is a rose by any other name worth 73% in Mean Machines magazine?
