Game: Spanky’s Quest
Start Date: September 6th, 2016
End Date: September 15th, 2016
Growing up with the SNES meant that I was often in a “renting games” phase with that system, and I have definitely rented some really cool and interesting games through this method. I feel like with renting, you are more inclined to check out a game that you probably wouldn’t just purchase if you saw it at a store, and Spanky’s Quest was definitely a game like that for me. In this game, a monkey named Spanky is trapped in an evil witch’s dungeon of….dangerous fruit enemies…and Spanky has to bounce his way out of dodge and defeat the witch once and for all.
As I said, this was a game I rented a lot as a kid, but I was never able to find the game in stores. Then, after going to a Game Xchange store near where I live, I saw this game in the display case for a mere 10 dollars. Feeling nostalgic, I picked up the game and I’m very glad I did! Because this was going to make for an interesting mini-project to go alongside Ocarina of Time!
