When you're 13, every cent you have counts. Case in point:
As it turns out, I actually went with IronSword: Wizards & Warriors II when the time came (check out the byline in that link, by the way). Yep...the one I would realize about eight years later had Fabio on the cover.
Cool game, though -- I distinctly remember borrowing $24 from Mom to buy it at the Collierville Wal-Mart, and then beating it in four days. I even was able to crack its password code system to figure out how to get more lives for later levels. Unfortunately, I didn't write much about the game, other than to mention that I traded it to a friend:
Fortunately, I did have quite a bit to say about Wizards & Warriors (again...byline). In fact, I think it qualifies as my first videogame review ever -- well, preview anyway.
So...that's next time. But for the time being, enjoy the awesome cheese that is this IronSword commercial.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, I would eventually rent (and beat in a weekend) Batman, and Super Mario Bros. 3 wouldn't actually be released for a while, as I recall.
NEXT TIME: What got in my way of "solving" Wizards & Warriors? Would I succeed?...
