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!

The Nintendo 64 was home to some really strange, but addictive, video games, and one of the strangest around might be Iggy’s Reckin’ Balls. What happens when you take a bunch of ball-like characters, put them in a platforming-racing game, and just let things run wild? The result…nothing but pure insanity!

This was another “weird” one that I had in my collection, but I was really interested in playing it for you guys because there was a point in time where I became obsessed over this game during my youth. Overall, even I admit that it was a very weird game to LP, and not to mention that I probably should have played it along with a game that wasn’t Adventures of Lolo 3, but it was a very interesting playthrough and I did, surprisingly, have a lot of fun with it.
