No... Confuzzled But interestingly enough...

Clue 2: Was a hybrid game- a mixture of Zelda, Metroid and Darius all rolled into one... and a very over looked game in my opinion.

Only one game at a time. If you guess right, you get to post your game.

An adventure-rpg, a platformer, and a shmup walk into a bar... I'll have to think about this one.

Also, you might want to choose another game for us to guess, since this is easily identified as your favourite game, and its path/filename gives it away too.

Google search by image also does the trick.

Clue 3: No internal battery for game saving and passwords are a biatch! No pun intended...

However on the upside of having passwords are that if you can figure out or by now since these games are so old, find them in books or online, you can cheat and or at least uber your character and change it's starting point, etc. Plus now also because of many years gone by, unless you have a soldering gun and feel comfortable messing with your baby... once these batteries die, you are SOL. I bought both Legend of Zelda of the Oracle series and they both could not save. When ever you buy such an old game, especially when you see no current game saves from previous owners, save as quickly as possible and shut the game off entirely and then restart. (I even go as far as pulling out the cartridge and reinsert it and then power it up, but that may be taking it a step too far.) If the game save is still there you are good. Although for how much longer is a different matter one can not tell that I am aware of.

With passwords you will never have that problem. However making ridiculously long and hard to read passwords that can scale up to over 20-40 digits with numbers, upper and lower case lettering, accents and symbols can be quite frustrating to both write down and to also input. I can not remember all the times I had written down what I thought was blinking right in front of me and then finding it is invalid...

God, Jesus, Mary!

Yes, I know how you feel.

No ability to save means super challenge.

Being able to save means you have unlimited lives.

No, but very close.

Clue 4: It was a "Legend" ahead of it's time...

I liked Blaster Master, especially the first level or two. But then I kind of got stuck in the later levels and it was harder to drive and jump the several platforms and kept bumping the hood of my vehicle and it seemed hard to regain my energy or fuel, while trying to kill everything that seems to glitch by that point.

Still though, that was a car and a driver who could get out and walk about. This was a female who could walk around and fly. (Darius clue...)

Crap, I forgot the character was a girl... I'm honestly not sure anymore. Can the next hint be platform-based? lol

Oh right... so it's an overlooked "legend" of an NES game that featured a morphing/transforming female that plays like a mixture of Zelda, Metroid and Darius...

Umm...not having played any NES games, the clues seem to point to 'The Guardian Legend'.

Oh I am so sorry... the correct answer is... What is "The Legend Guadrian"... Suspicious

No you are correct... I mean I had no other clues to give, I had to spell it out... Laughing

Your turn. Happy

But in all honesty, this just goes to show how underrated the game really is. And yet it combines all the elements of Zelda, Metroid and Darius. (Technically it scrolls up, not left to right, but the monsters look "fishy" and sounds a lot better than "1942".) If you can pick this up for $10 or less for sure I would do so in a heart beat. If you can even find it for $20 and you have the money, grab it! It is well worth the price. And the password system, although long is not that hard to recognize what is what. Anything that is lower case will have an accent or line above or underneath (I forget which.) so every thing is easily recognizable with out question.

Holy crap, the first level's song intro sounds just like the intro to The Legend of Zelda II (Overworld)

The Legend Guardian VS The Legend of Zelda II Overworld
