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!

What happens when you take Kirby and put him in a game about mini-golf? You get Kirby’s Dream Course! Kirby takes golf in a very unique way though, turning himself into the ball and using a variety of power-ups to move further along the course. This is the type of game where clever thinking, and sometimes, even a little bit of risk, can yield some very great rewards, so go for broke and get a great score!

This was another project that was impacted in a very unfortunate way, by the crash of my computer at the time, only being able to record on one day every two weeks, but regardless of this fact, I was still able to enjoy a very classic game from my childhood, doing something that I had honestly never done before the project…unlocking and mastering the bonus content that the game has to offer!

This playlist also features a bonus inclusion of ShadowMarioXLI and I competing against each other, and playing all the stages of the Multiplayer mode. This was featured on the CrystalStarStudio channel, but was treated as part of the project.
