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!

Luigi has won a contest that he didn’t even enter and his brother has gone missing at the building site of a giant spooky mansion. After investigating the house, Luigi finds that it has been haunted by ghosts and Mario’s fate continues to be unknown. With the help of Professor E. Gadd, a scholar of ghosts, Luigi will now go toe-to-toe with the spooks to find his brother.

After Super Mario Sunshine, I wanted to cover the Gamecube installment starring the other plumber brother, especially since Sunshine was scheduled to end around the time of October. However, due to some computer issues, I had to push this project forward until November, but I was still in the mood for some good old fashioned ghost hunting!
