Angel of the X-Men is also known as Archangel.
Cloak and Dagger should be two separate entries. (Though often associated together, they are two different characters.)
Goliath is also known as Atlas.
Rick Jones is also known as A-Bomb.
Actually, it looks like it said "Fantastic Four" on the floppy, but it's definitely the same game: http://www.ebay.com/itm/FANTASTIC-FOUR-video-game-Commodore-64-Computer-/140739167899?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item20c4b5469b
"Fantastic Four" should probably be an alias for the real entry anyway....
There is no game called Fantastic Four developed by Adventure International on the systems described. (I believe that this is actually supposed to represent Questprobe Featuring Human Torch and the Thing, making it redundant.)
("The Amazing Spider-Man 2" can be an alias, as it is the Game Boy sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man)
2. Spider-Man: The Video Game
Spider-Man: The Videogame
(notice how it is one word on the flyer; also appears as one word on the marquee and title screen)
3. The Uncanny X-Men aliases:
a. Marvel's X-Men (title screen)
b. X-Men (side of box; sorry, no reference)
4. Spider-Man: The Animated Series
(see box; "The Animated Series" is often added for clarity, so it should be an alias)
5. The Amazing Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin aliases:
a. Spider-Man ( Genesis and Sega Master System versions)
b. Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin
6. Howard the Duck
Howard the Duck: Adventure on Volcano Island
Betty Ross is also known as: Red She-Hulk, Elizabeth Ross, Betty Ross-Banner, Elizabeth Ross-Banner, Harpy
- The Amazing Spider-Man 3: Invasion of the Spider-Slayers --> Spider-Man 3: Invasion of the Spider-Slayers (though the first two Spider-Man Game Boy games had "The Amazing" in the title, the third did not -- see box)
- X-Men: Madness in the Murderworld --> X-Men: Madness in Murderworld (no "the" -- http://www.gb64.com/Screenshots/X/X-Men_-_Madness_in_Murderworld_1.png )
- X-Men 2: The Fall of the Mutants --> X-Men II: The Fall of the Mutants (Roman numeral)
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?...
MB: Thanks! Right there with you on the whole "writing in cursive thing"...
Diamond: Awesome pic! I think my favorite part is the Etonic shoebox. Do they even make that brand anymore?
Jazz: Thanks! Though your phrasing is particularly ominous...
organicalistic_: I warned you! :-) But he makes good points.
