NES Remix 2

released on Apr 24, 2014

This second installment of the mashup of classic Nintendo games. NES Remix 2 features challenges from later NES games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Kirby’s Adventure and Metroid. Just like NES Remix, the sequel includes stages from the original games with new challenges, as well as modified stages that introduce new elements.

Best of all, players can unlock a free bonus game: Super Luigi Bros.! This is a full game based on a challenge from NES Remix. It contains all the levels from the original Super Mario Bros. game, only now it stars Luigi and requires players to navigate familiar levels in an unheard-of way -- by running to the left! The game even incorporates Luigi’s signature high jump. It’s a fun new way to jump into this classic game.

The sequel to the already amazing NES Remix was much better than the first one. Much more recognisable game lineup; Mario 3, Zelda 2, Kirby, Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario. More defined remixed levels like fighting Whispy Woods with Boos closing in, or Dr. Mario in grayscale reminiscing the Game Boy era. Such a good game.

I've played a handful of NES games. There was one in my house as a child, but I have very few memories before the 16-bit era, other than it being a Tetris machine and then playing Punch Out!! and Lifeforce at day care. Through the virtual console and NS online, I've save-stated my way though the top of the canon. I am glad I can experience the games, but obviously, the punishing game play and dearth of quality of life features, make a lot of them difficult to fully appreciate today. Therefore, the Remix games provide a valuable service; I'm able to experience the breadth of what Nintendo decided is worth presenting to contemporary audiences from the NES era. I can try 28 different games, have a fun--if occasionally frustrating--experience, know I like Wario's Woods and that I never have to open Clu Clu Land. I think the second entry has better games, but is no better or worse than the first, because they do such a good job remixing, or whatever, them. Lots of fun if you have the patience (or skill, maybe, I wouldn't know).
504/507 stars, rainbowing half-ish, can confidently say I will never unlock the final level.


It's like NES Remix 1 but it's 2

In a way, this seems like an extended version of the 9-Volt segments in WarioWare, with short challenges of NES games. Found it pretty fun to play through, even if some of the games are not as fun to play through as the others. Sequel has a better selection of games, and I always wanted to see an NES Remix 3.
