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!

When the Nintendo 64 first came out, Nintendo had a few titles in mind for their release line-up; a Mario game, a Zelda game that will be continually be pushed back until we are ready for it, a Star Wars game because everyone loves Star Wars, and…..a flight simulator? Ok, it’s not really a flight simulator, but more of a whacky game with crazy pilots who take the skies in a variety of different contraptions. And thus, Pilot Wings 64 was born!

This game has always been seen as a bit of a joke between my circle of friends, with me (and maybe one other person if I’m lucky) being the only defender of the title. I personally love this game and find it to be very addictive and fun. It’s no masterpiece of gaming, but it serves its purpose and does it with style, and I wanted to bring that experience to my viewers. I was intending to go for an “all gold medal” run through of the game, but I came up a little short because Sky-Diving is a jerk. Nonetheless, I hope you guys enjoy! =)
