Darkwing Duck (NES)
Apparently a mysterious crime wave has swept across the city, probably run by a secret criminal organisation called 'F.O.W.L', and we're the only ones who can stop it. Well either us, or the police, but they're asking us first.
This is going to get annoying.
SHOO! If I fall down here I have to repeat the whole section again.
And then after I finally killed him I find out that he's not a miniboss, he's a regular enemy.
These things are totally killing my interest in the game. They just take way too long to get rid of.
Plus, to go up a ledge I have to press jump twice, but to go down I have to drop under with jump+down, then let go with down on its own If I tap jump a second time, he jumps back up. I keep screwing it up and ending up on the wrong ledge.
He's immune to my attacks until he climbs out fully to shoot me, so I have to time it right.
Back to the start of the level.
Back to the start.
Back to the start of the level again then.
Actually screw it, I'm going back to the level select and going somewhere else.
I really do not care enough to fight these enemies anymore. I'm just going to jump over anything that takes more than two or three shots to kill.
My final verdict: fuck this game.
